TOTAL Home Makeover!! Day one...

Over the next 11 days I will be sharing ways to a TOTAL home makeover!!! I will be covering simple ways to improve your wellness by starting in your home and getting rid of toxins. Our home should be a safe haven. A place of rest and comfort. A place to create memories. A place to invite loved ones. Have you ever considered that your home could be making you sick? There are many hidden toxins in our everyday personal care products and cleaning products. Toxins that are banned in other countries and have very harmful effects on our body. These toxins are giving our bodies more to fight off. In a time like this the more support we can offer our body and the less it has to fight off the better! We are the gatekeepers of our home and I want to help you be an empowered consumer. When we know better, we can do better!

Three simple steps to upgrade your home and wellness:

1. Identify harmful products: Look at the ingredients and get familiar with harmful ingredients. Just pick a few ingredients and google "harmful effects of" (insert ingredient).
2. Replace toxic products with safe and effective alternatives. ;) I got you covered on this one...
3. Implement a lifestyle of wellness, purpose, and abundance! ;) I got you on this one too... I have a great community of like-minded people that offer an array of knowledge and support. Change and starting something new is not easy and can be intimidating, I get it. 

I often hear people question "if these ingredients are so harmful then why are they still in our products". Hopefully this information will be an inspiration for you to do some of your own research and also empower you to make better decisions for your family. 

The skin is the largest organ we have. Everything, YES everything, we put on our skin is absorbed into out body. We are also exposed to things by inhalation. Chemicals from products can be found in our bodies within seconds of exposure and are linked to things like asthma, allergies, cancer, reproductive issues, and hormone disruption. Hormone disruption alone is a very scary thing when we are talking about overall wellness. Did you know that balanced hormones effect mood, fertility, heart rate, metabolism, mental and emotional wellness, and sleep. Using products that are ridden with toxins automatically puts our body on the defense. Can you imagine how exhausting it must be to ALWAYS be on the defense!! Bioaccumulation is the process by which our bodies accumulate toxins faster than they can eliminate them. Many of the harmful chemicals found in our products are deemed safe in small quantities but what is overlooked is long term use and consistent use. Many of these products contain MANY harmful ingredients and not just one. Most of the products we use are very deceptive too. Manufacturers are not required to disclose all the ingredients to consumers. That means in most cases we have no idea what we are exposing ourselves, kids, or pets to. 

See you tomorrow for a bit on reading labels and greenwashing!
