Fortunately, We Can Choose Organic Foods!

Organic foods often have more beneficial nutrients. Non-organic foods that are conventionally-grown may cause food allergies. Most of the time when we eliminate these conventionally-grown foods allergy symptoms lessen or go away over time when we switch to organic.

Why choose organic options?

Organic produce contains fewer pesticides

Chemicals such as synthetic fungicides, herbicides, and insecticides are widely used in conventional agriculture and residues remain on (and in) the food we eat.

Organic food is often fresher

Organic foods do not contain preservatives that make it last longer. Shop for local organic produce whenever possible.

Organic farming tends to be better for the environment

Organic farming practices may reduce pollution, conserve water, reduce soil erosion, increase soil fertility, and use less energy. Farming without synthetic pesticides is also better for nearby birds and animals as well as people who live close to farms.

Organically raised animals are NOT given antibiotics, growth hormones, or fed animal byproducts.

Organically-raised animals are provided with 100% organic feed. These animals are kept in a safe and clean-living environment.

Organic meat and milk can be richer in certain nutrients

Results of a 2016 European study show that levels of certain nutrients, including omega-3 fatty acids, were up to 50 percent higher in organic meat and milk than in conventionally raised versions.

Organic food is GMO-free

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) or genetically engineered (GE) foods are plants whose DNA has been altered in ways that cannot occur in nature or in traditional crossbreeding, most commonly in order to be resistant to pesticides or produce an insecticide.

Why choose organic wellness products?

Treat your body with natural, healthy foods & remedies

Embracing holistic living helps you to be more intentional with the ingredients you are eating or using and the household products you are buying. Try to eat more natural, whole foods in your diet. Buy cleaning and daily care products with natural ingredients. It’s crazy how many harmful chemicals you can find in everyday products nowadays. These chemicals can impact your body and emotions. So, when you can, opt for natural foods and remedies.

Why choose organic wellness products? Well think about it and ask yourself am I exposing myself to chemicals without even realizing it? The answer is probably YES! The truth is you are exposed to hundreds or even thousands of toxic chemicals in one single day without even knowing it. Think about it. First, in your shower, you have your shampoo, conditioner, body wash or soap. Second, when you get out, you have body lotion, deodorant, face cream, etc. If you are a person that likes to use makeup, consider the following: concealer, foundation, powder, blush, eyeliner, eye shadow, lipstick, and etc. Each of these products mentioned has a few dozen chemicals within them. Do the math. Now think again.

While studying to become a Holistic Nutritionist, I learned how many harmful products we are using on our bodies. Many mainstream products are full of toxic and synthetic chemicals that disrupt hormone function. They cause our body to experience imbalances, such as weight gain, difficulty sleeping, fatigue, hair growth in areas where it shouldn't be growing, thinning hair, mood swings, and depression. And in my case, infertility.

Short Personal Story….

I first stopped using mainstream beauty products when I was trying to conceive for my first child. I felt my body detoxing. My underarms developed a huge rash with many pimple-like cysts, it was painful and very uncomfortable for months. It took about 4 months for it to heal. I believe it was caused by using deodorant and antiperspirant over many years with all the build-up of toxins. Today, I don’t even bother with deodorant or antiperspirant now. My husband has also developed this habit of no longer using deodorant as well.

I learned to take responsibility for my own health by using better wellness products for myself and my family. Using organic wellness products makes me feel empowered because I know I am not putting toxic and synthetic chemicals on my children. Being an IVF mom of two, I understand the struggle I endured to have my children.

I recently partnered up with Maple Organics, a family-focused Canadian company that makes plant-based wellness products. I stand by their organic products to help bring better remedies that are good for our bodies and our plant. Maple Organics proudly provides families safe, effective, and organic personal and pharmaceutical solutions. The ingredients are pure and simple. Try to choose natural plant-based products vs. mainstream drugstore brands. Choose plant-based medicine over conventional medicine whenever possible. By slowly removing toxic products from our medicine cabinet and bathrooms we are moving in the direction that will help you manage your health better and show your body some love.
