The Truth About Toxic-Free Living
Is it really possible to live a toxic-free lifestyle? Well, not really. We’re constantly being bombarded with toxins from every angle day in and day out. So how can we protect ourselves?
Since health begins within, we’ll start with finding peace. No matter how much wholesome food you eat, clean water you drink, or how much you exercise, you cannot reach optimal health if you have no peace within. It is key to obtaining optimum health.
Next, we’ll address the soulish capacity – your emotion, will, and intellect. Ever hear “what goes in comes out”? This not only stands true for your body, but also your mind! What type of information are you allowing in? What are you doing with negative information once your brain processes it?
Negative thoughts and emotions are so toxic that they can override any good nutrition and exercise program we commit to. It is imperative that we eliminate toxins from our thought process to maintain a healthy mindset. This takes practice, so be patient with yourself and allow yourself time for mental transformation to take place.
While not frequently considered, relationships can also be toxic, wreaking havoc on our emotions. Carefully evaluate the quality of your relationships. Are they healthy? Surrounding yourself with positive people will encourage positivity within you.
Now let’s talk about the foods we eat, the water we drink, what we put on our skin, exercise, and proper sleep. A diet high in organic raw fruits and vegetables, as well as quality water, is essential to eliminating toxins. Exercising helps to release toxins from the body, while adequate sleep encourages healing and repairs the brain by clearing out harmful toxic waste proteins.
There are companies dedicated to formulating safe, yet effective, everyday products we use, including skin-care, hair care, make-up, and even feminine hygiene products! Even your household cleaning products can be totally toxic-free. Basically, for every type of product you use, there is a healthier alternative. Many believe once they’ve reached this point, they’re all set – but it doesn’t stop here!
This final step is often neglected simply because for so long we’ve been conditioned to think about our health just on a physical level, yet our bodies are directly connected to our environment. We are constantly exposed to toxins in our environment through water, air, dirty electricity, pollution, etc. When you think about all the ways we’re exposed to toxins and how they affect our overall health, it’s mind-blowing! Solar is great for promoting clean, renewable energy, and powerline conditioners work to reduce toxic EMFs, aka “dirty electricity,” that flood our homes, schools, and office buildings. What does this mean for your health? Improved cell function, clearer thinking, and better energy.
All these things encourage our body’s ability to effectively eliminate toxins. For some, this may be a lot to take in and make lifestyle adjustments to. Take one step at a time, beginning within, and work your way to a truly toxic-free lifestyle.
