In 2014, our family took our wellness journey to a whole new level.
While we were doing everything we thought was healthy, (shopping organic and avoiding GMOs), we weren’t aware of the other dangers lurking in our home that were making us sick. Most people truly aren’t.
We learned that there are dangerous chemicals in everyday household items like lotion, dish soap, dryer sheets and even makeup . . . all linked to cancer, infertility, and disease. We didn’t know.
The surgeon general has issued a statement saying that the ingredients in American personal care products now pose a greater cancer risk to the public than smoking. We just didn’t know.
We began to read labels and slowly but surely took a trash bag through our home. Into the trash bag went plastics, scented candles, over-the-counter drugs, shampoo (and yes, my expensive MAC makeup) — anything that was setting our family up for failure with our health. We threw it all away.
We didn’t learn it all overnight, but we made little steps each month. As we made these steps, our family’s little health issues disappeared before our eyes. Skin issues were gone. Sleep issues were gone. Digestive issues were gone. That groggy, tired, lifeless feeling was gone. We began to truly feel healthy.
