Girl! Go Ahead And Release Those Toxins.
Life can be stressful. The hustle and bustle of work, being a mother, driving through traffic in the city, and just keeping track of the day's ins and outs. We are deciding what to have for supper, helping the kids with their schoolwork, performing wifely tasks, and attempting to maintain our family's health without taking "too many" shortcuts. We are exposed to many things, from the goods we use to the air we breathe, which can lead to diseases, including cancer, inflammation, high cholesterol, diabetes, and hypertension. Who has time to consider all the daily exposures that are harmful to our existence in the midst of all this?
We Have To Think Ahead
There are so many things we can't control, but why not control the things that we can? I, for one, would like to live out my days in my best possible health. I'd rather spend my time walking without using assistive devices such as canes or walkers, having all my body parts in their original state, vacationing on the islands, and sleeping in my clean and comfortable home rather than being a frequenter of a hospital. Wouldn't you? But how do we get here without feeling like there's another thing being added to our growing "To Do" list?
Step 1 Taking a little "me time" is the first step towards releasing those toxins. Try listening to your favorite podcast during a 5 minute stretch, a 20-minute shower, or a 30-minute jog to obtain the knowledge you need to make wiser decisions. Try reading an article or blog you trust if you have a moment while using the restroom or before going to bed.
Step 2 is to apply the knowledge you have gained and discover practical methods to apply it to your life. In order to avoid bringing those toxins back into your body, the key is to remain calm while minimizing the toxic load and preparing your body to handle more.
Exposure to toxic chemicals and heavy metals has been linked to a number of diseases, including type 2 diabetes, cancer, obesity, and immunological and reproductive system dysregulation.
We can prepare our systems to manage these substances more effectively, even if we cannot completely eradicate all poisons and their sources.
The term "toxic load" refers to the dangerous chemicals (also known as "xenobiotics") that build up in the body as a result of overexposure to things like air and water pollutants, a variety of preservatives, chemicals in personal care products, and household cleaners, even in medications, plastics, and other environmental factors like herbicides and pesticides.
How to Minimize environmental toxins
- Let some fresh air in. Open windows to let fresh air into the home.
- Use household cleaners that are as non-toxic as possible. Remember that the majority of cleaning jobs may be completed with hot, soapy water or diluted vinegar. Keep in mind to put on a mask and gloves and open your windows while using ammonia or bleach.
- Use cosmetics, cleaning products, and personal care items without toxins. Use plastics and nonstick cookware in moderation.
- Eat a lot less manufactured food. Added sugars, GMOs, chemicals, artificial sweeteners, and a lengthy list of additives discovered in processed foods and meats are connected to dysbiosis and inflammation.
Step 3, on your path to better health, start gradually and treat yourself nicely. Simple adjustments like using oat creamer instead of creamer made from cow's milk can significantly impact your health. These minor adjustments frequently have a domino effect, which causes the change to spread.
Now, Repeat steps 1 through 3. Your body will thank you, I promise. Trust me, I, for one, know that change takes time. You have to be patient and kind to yourself. Trust the process.!
