Clean, Protect Your Children, Reduce Asthma, Save Money!

Asthma rates increased 160% in children from 1980-1994 and have continued to increase since.  One culprit is the many, toxic, household cleaners we use in our homes.  In the past 7 years, since I changed to non-toxic cleaners like the one below and began making healthier nutrition choices, I’ve need my asthma medication for a total of 1 week as opposed to daily  prior to that time.

The non-toxic argument is why I began using it… The AMAZING results and myriad of jobs it can do with the tiniest amounts has kept me hooked on this great cleaner!

LEGAL STUFF SHAKLEE MUST SAY: Some plastics may be sensitive to the cleaning agents in Basic-H².
Do not use Basic-H² on plastic or fiberglass without contacting the manu-facturer for compatibility with cleaners with linear alcohol ethoxylates.  Although Basic-H² is U.S.D.A. approved for hand
washing, Shaklee does not recommend the product for personal care. An eye irritant, Basic-H² should not be used to clean contact lenses, plastic-forward lenses, or plastic-glass frames. Because of risk of irritation, particularly among young females, Basic-H² should not be used as a bath additive in any amount, even when diluted. Bath additives require special testing, which has not been conducted on Basic-H². For the same reason, Basic-H² should not be used as a general shampoo or dandruff shampoo.
Do not mix Basic-H² with Basic-G Cleaner. The water wetting agents in Basic-H² inactivate the germ-killing agents in Basic-G. In case of eye contact, flush with water, as Basic-H² is highly concentrated.

Asthma Facts

Science mimics life–children with degenerative diseases.

I’m amazed and somewhat disheartened at the large number of children we see these days with degenerative diseases that, in days gone by, were only diseases of the aged.

Why the change? The change, I believe, is very multi-faceted.  I will attach some videos that explain a bit why I feel this way.

  1. Our Dietary choices – it is becoming common knowledge that the Standard American Diet (sad) is grossly lacking in nutrition and the sustenance our bodies need to continue building healthy cells and thus healthy bodies & babies.  An example of a study that showed very similar results in test animals was Pottinger’s Cats:

    This site also offers some excellent insight to what these studies and research mean to each of us.

  2. Our Body Care choices – In an effort to be the best looking, the youngest looking, the tannest, have the smoothest, most-manageable hair, yet we – many times – don’t take the time to stop and read ingredients and believe that because they are sold over the counter they must be safe.  However the industry regulates itself and writes its own rules… and if you use an average of 8 products a day under the “allowable toxic limit” of 1, say .80 then after you slather on your 8 products, you are now at a potential of 6.4x above the “safe level”.

  3. The Cleaning Products we choose – We bring products into our homes that are advertised to “kill germs” to “clean without work” and such sound great in the advertising but can actually harm our families.  We bring in neurotoxins and other poisons with the intention of protecting our children.

  4. Unclean/un-pure water – Finally, we no longer drink fresh, clean water.  We drink water from bottles that can leach toxins into the water when the bottles are transported and allowed to reach hot temperatures, our tap water contains Flouride and we aren’t given a choice in the matter. Antibiotics, hormones, and pharmaceuticals & chlorine are showing up in our tap water.  Fresh water is becoming more difficult to come by.

What do we do?

We stay calm, focus on each issue one at a time, and make a conscious choice to pay attention to prevention and protect our families, our children, our grandchildren and the other future generations.  We’ve voted to make the popular products available with our dollars for years.

As we begin redirecting our spending to healthier choices, 1 choice at a time we begin to see a difference in our own household, then those of our friends, and eventually our world.

The change begins with me.

Make it a GREAT day!
