I bet you are exposed to hundreds of toxic chemicals before leaving for work this morning.
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. And if you are a person that likes to use makeup: concealer, foundation, powder, blush, eyeliner, eye shadow, lipstick, etc. Each of these products mentioned above has a few dozen chemicals within each. Do the math.
Now think again.
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.
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.
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 the overuse of deodorant and antiperspirant for 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.
