Our Poisoned Planet is Poisoning US!

We live on a poisoned planet. The air we breathe is full of automobile and manufacturing emissions. The water we drink and bathe in is chlorinated and fluoridated, and the toxins from the plastics all around us are harming us. And that’s just the beginning.

Depressing, yes. But the reality is that even if we eat perfectly healthful diets  (which I don’t), our bodies get toxic. Toxic, as in, poisoned…to a degree. That’s because lots of the stuff that goes into us (like from plastics, for example) our bodies can’t get rid of. They just were not created to deal with these unnatural things. So, our bodies store them, locked away. But they’re not truly locked away, no. They cause our bodies to develop dis-ease.  To not function right. To not feel well.

Do you feel well? Do you have as much energy as you should?

I have an electric teapot. It boils water very quickly. Comes in handy. I also have very hard mineral containing tap water. (It’s less when I use my filtered water, but it’s still there. And I’m making a point here so don’t get on me for advising folks to drink tap water! ) After several days of use, the teapot gets a hard white film on the bottom of it. I can swish some of it away, but if I don’t do anything about it, it will continue to grow. Until one day I heat up water for some herbal tea, pour it in my cup, and see gross flakes of white stuff floating around. Yuck.

So, I need to clean that stuff off. Break it up, dissolve it. I pour some white vinegar on it and let it sit for an hour and presto! It’s gone. Just like that. Of course, it will build up again, but I know how to clean it.

The same idea goes for many things. Decluttering your house, cleaning your kitchen, detoxifying your body.  If you want to have a house you enjoy, a kitchen without bugs, and a body that feels good and works well, you must clean them up and maintain them.

My body needs to be decluttered. In other words, it’s time for a detox. Our whole family, in fact, could use one, and it’s time. I mentioned this in my post: Sick And Tired of Feeling Sick And Tired, written quite a while ago. Now we’re getting serious. In fact, we will begin our family detox program next Monday, August 15. Would you like to join us?

If you would like to know more about why and how to detox, WellWithU has a wonderful 5 part webinar series on Environmental Detox available on their website.

So, I’m making a plan for our family to detox. I’ll include details in an upcoming post of what exactly we will do.

And if you’re interested in joining in, in decluttering your body of toxins, we’d love to have you join us. I’ll give you some ideas of things you can do, some babysteps you can take toward a healthier you.

Think about it….

  1. Very interested to see the next blog-on how to. I’m thinking mine and my family’s bodies could use some detox. the how to will be very good, but also wondering about side effects and weither there is an age limit, for ex i have 2 kiddos, 2 & 4 is it safe for them? we’re cleaning up quite a bit in our lives, i’m de cluttering a LOT in my house to prepare for our move in april. also trying to switch my kids to natural toys. and better for us and better for the enviroment products. it’s been a long haul, but i will feel so much better when it’s over and hopefully so will my family.

  2. o my biggest leap lately?? NO SUNSCREEN! we have gone all summer without sun screen!! guess what? my kids haven’t gotten a single sun burn, we eat a lot of water melon-mother in law said it was really good for building up the body’s natural uv protection.

  3. Good for you! We used sunscreen when we went to the beach (MANY hours in the sun), but other than that we’ve been able to avoid it. The kids are swimming/splashing in the pool every day for about an hour with no problem; if it’s going to be longer than that, I have them wear a shirt. Seems to work just fine.
