Detox is on my mind…pretty much all the time. But as I drive around town and see all the little flags in people’s yards, I am reminded of the importance of detox even more. You know the little flags I am talking about…the signs that the yard has been sprayed with chemicals and you should stay off. If the signs weren’t enough to tell you chemicals were used, the unmistakable odor of a recently sprayed lawn can clue you in.
We are literally bombarded by toxins every single day. We have physical, chemical, and emotional toxins that disturb our health, negatively impact our hormones and produce disease in our body. There are steps you can take to decrease your toxic burden. The chemicals sprayed on lawns are not the only source of toxins that you are exposed to every day. There are many things you can do to support detoxification on a daily basis. One great benefit is that these steps can be taken on a tight budget.
- Avoid using chemical cleaners, fertilizers, and things you put on your skin. Find safe, natural alternatives to commonly used cleaners and household items.
- Make sure you have a bowel movement every single day to eliminate toxins from your body.
- Exercise daily to sweat so that your body can get rid of toxins through your sweat.
- Support the nutrient demands of detoxification by taking one scoop of Ultra Clear Plus pH and one capsule of Advaclear every single day…preferably in the evening when you go to bed. Detoxification is a nighttime chore and providing the key nutrients will let this process work better.
- Find and use safer alternatives for lawn care and reduce your exposure to the chemicals commonly used as fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides.
Reducing your toxic burden goes a long way to restoring your health and reducing your risk of chronic disease and cancer. In my clinic I offer patients a variety of safe, effective and scientifically-sound options designed to support detoxification and cleansing of your body. The Wellness Week, Restore Cleanse and Clear Change programs are all options that can be tailored to specifically meet your needs.
So what steps are you going to take to reduce your toxic burden and improve your health?
