Toxins & Infections
Only when you remove the source of your toxicity can you begin to get, and stay, healthy. The toxins responsible for infecting your body can be found inside your home, in your environment, in the food you eat and in the products you use. All kinds of chemicals can compromise your wellbeing, keep you from feeling your best, and make you more susceptible to chronic illness.
The chemicals used in the majority of cleaning products are protected by trade secret laws… which means companies don’t have to disclose all ingredients. A lot of cleaning products use ingredients that are carcinogenic or neurotoxic.
Look out for these ingredients in your cleaning products:
Formaldehyde, Ethylbenzene, Petroleum Distillates, Chlorine, Benzene, Butyl Cellosolve, Phenol
Check labels and purchase cleaning products devoid of any of these chemicals. I also recommend using natural cleaners. My favorite is Thieves Household Cleaner from Young Living. You can find it here and purchase it wholesale by creating a membership.
Houses are sealed from the outside, so it’s easy for toxins to get trapped inside. AC units can start growing mold when they’re shut off, because condensation builds up and creates a perfect environment for it.
You should have your house tested for mold, and if you find that your house is infested with mold, take the necessary steps to remove it.
I recommend making sure you have high quality air filters, and using an energy return ventilator to bring in fresh air and let out stale air.
Bacteria and parasites aren’t just from traveling to foreign countries, drinking and eating unfamiliar water and food. Since food is exported globally, we’re essentially exposed to foreign parasites simply from shopping at the grocery store. Most people, especially those with some type of chronic disease, are a host to some kind of parasite. People with weakened immune systems are especially susceptible.
Parasites are also hard to detect because the infected person might not show any symptoms. And even when there are symptoms, they might not guess that parasites are the ultimate culprit.
If you suspect you have a parasite infection, I recommend my clients use The GIMap for parasite testing, which can be ordered here. After I receive the results, we set up an appointment to go over them together.
I also welcome you to connect with me to make an appointment if you would like to investigate the root cause of your health problems, whether it might be connected to mold, carcinogenic chemicals, parasites or anything else. You can call 831-373-6204 to set up your 1-on-1 with me.
Next week in the last part of this blog series we’ll talk about how stress can wreak havoc on your health, and what you can do about it.
