I talk about toxicities a lot.

And for good reason!

We are exposed to toxins all the time.

To me, that translates to needing to handle the parts that we have control over the best we can.

The first step, of course, is knowing what those potential toxins even are.

Let’s take toxic chemicals for example.

These are chemicals that are allowed in products such as:

  • Shampoos / Conditioners
  • Body lotions
  • Deodorants
  • Cleaning Products
  • Dryer Sheets
  • Laundry detergent
  • Carpeting
  • Wall paint
  • Upholstery
  • Plugins / air fresheners
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Processed food packaging
  • Receipts
  • Plastics of all sorts

The list goes on and on.

But this still sounds kind of out there, doesn’t it?

What are those chemicals that we’re exposed to all the time really doing?

Well, these chemicals can cause things such as:

  • ADHD
  • Low birth weight
  • Vomiting
  • Infertility
  • Kidney issues
  • Reduced IQ
  • Anxiety
  • Headaches
  • Skin issues
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Cellular death
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Weight gain (one category of chemicals is actually labeled as a “obesogens,” literally causing obesity)
  • Behavioral issues
  • Cancer

This list also goes on, too.

To get you started, a few of the chemicals to start eliminating are:

  • Parabens
  • Phthalates
  • Ammonium laurel sulfate, sodium laurel sulfate, sodium fourth sulfate
  • Polyethylene Glycols (PEGs)
  • DEA / TEA
  • Bleach

And this is important: you need to start eliminating these toxic sources around you first.

It’s not that you can handle every source around you at all times.

But going into a detox with a constant toxin exposure is rough, and may not be as effective.

And while the body does have mechanisms to get rid of toxins…

We are exposed to so many toxins at this point, including toxins we should have never been exposed to…

… that doing a proper detox is going to be necessary.

But handling the toxic sources is a must, it’s never just about taking a pill.
