Last night, in my Temple Maintenance class we were discussing choices. All the choices we make, how many times a day we are voting with our dollars and our actions.
Our overall health is determined by our overall LIFESTYLE. The choices we make profoundly effect our health on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis!
What choices am I talking about? Simple choices made every day.
- —What to eat
- —What to drink
- —What to think
- —How & when to move
- —Products we put on our skin
- —Products we use in our homes
Why are the last two choices on this list? Let me show you. Doris Rapp is a board-certified environmental medical specialist and pediatric allergist. She has done extensive research on the effects of allergens and CHEMICAL exposures.
The photos I am sharing are in regard to studies done with children. As adults, we must realize that if our children are effected, then we certainly are too! These are some of the examples from the above book.
We have so many children being labeled as ADHD these days. We have them sitting in classrooms for 6-8 hours a day with NO recess, surrounded by toxic cleaners that are inhibiting their brains ability to function at its optimum potential.
In class last night I referenced this piece, below, and the reaction the girl had to Choline bleach exposure – through the ductwork of the home. Mom was in the basement laundry room and the girl was in her bedroom. What effect is that bleach having on the person who is actually acutely exposed? (We don’t use bleach in our household – we use the Get Clean line of cleaning products.)
Below, the Teacher is commenting on the change in the student’s writing pattern. An outsider, with no knowledge of what was going on, noticed the difference in the before and after.
Finally, here is an example with Pinesol. This parent changed to the Get Clean line of cleaners for a week, didn’t believe that it could have that big an impact on her child, so went back to the Pinesol to test her hypothesis.
The Solution? (pun intended)
Switch out the toxic cleaners in your home for cheaper, concentrated options. Vinegar and baking soda are one option. Here is the option I choose!
Price is something that concerns many of us. Not me, I’m saving SO much on my cleaning products, its amazing!!! And they WORK! Just ask my skeptical husband.
These products are available piece by piece if you choose to finish what you have on hand first, OR – as a kit to swap it all out at once, as I did, or even in mini kits for the different areas of your home!
Begin voting today with your dollars, not as many dollars as you have been using. Tell the toxic industry, we are no longer interested in what they have to sell. We do not wish to pay them to poison ourselves or our families.
For exhausted, busy moms… They can clean all day and we know they are safe. (So are our pets if they decide to wash them too!)
