Toxins are a common problem we all face. Let me show you what I mean. You see, we are exposed to countless toxins every day, from sources we may not even be aware of. Every breath, every bite, every minute under the sun—they all introduce us to substances and chemicals (natural or synthetic) that can negatively impact health.
A toxin is any substance that places undue stress on the body. Toxic load is the sum of these substances, accumulated within your body, and the burden they place on vital organs at a given time. Many products that are marketed to keep your home smelling fresh actually spread synthetic chemicals into the air you breathe. Think cleaning products, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, unfiltered water, air pollution, cookware, cosmetics and alcohol just to name a few. .
The body has built-in protection and filters to help you manage the toxins you encounter. It starts with the mucous membranes that line your nose, mouth, and throat, which are meant to trap foreign particles. Inside your digestive tract, trillions of microorganisms—probiotics, or good bacteria—maintain digestive efficiency and support our immune system’s ability to respond to toxic threats. Finally, the liver and kidneys identify and eliminate toxic substances from your blood. And please note, children are especially vulnerable to environmental toxins, as their toxic load can accumulate far more rapidly than an adult’s.
When your toxic load is light, your body is more efficient and effective at tackling any toxins it encounters. When functioning properly, your body is an efficient toxic load–minimizing machine. When your toxic load becomes too heavy for your body, things can go downhill fast, especially because your body becomes less efficient at managing the load and removing them effectively
There is good news! It is that that YOU control what you bring into your own home and life. And one step at a time, the goal is to minimize the exposure to toxins you have control over. When I first realized how many products in my home might have been contributing to the toxic load of me and my family, I was completely overwhelmed! The key is to start slow. To learn. And to make better choices. While there are many things you can do to reduce the toxic load of your home, today I am going to share with you an idea or two about how you can improve your air quality.
We all want our homes to smell welcoming. I know I sure do! And with most of us have odors around the house we’re trying to deal with—anyone with kids or pets knows what I’m talking about. I have three growing smelly boys that like to pass wind often! So whether you’re trying to set the mood for a gathering with friends or trying to erase of the lingering scent of what was for dinner last night there in a toxin free alternative.
You see, in the past I used to light a candle or gas the house with a round of Glen 20 that always left me coughing and gasping for air as I now wonder if breathing in all those ingredients are actually good for you? Now we use a diffuser, (which gently releases a cold micro-mist into the environment) as an alternative which I truly believe smells BETTER through the use of the powerful natural aromas of pure essential oils.
