I care about my family and friends. I care about nature, living a greener life, the environment around me and my loved ones
I have been reading a lot about the toxins that are put in our food, water, air and even toiletries. There is an amazing amount of chemicals put in all of our surroundings. After reading several books I have compiled a list, of what i perceive to be toxins. I use it everyday to do my best to avoid these toxins. I am a toxin fanatic. Everywhere I go I point out to people potential toxins they have in their surroundings. Some say that this is like a new BIBLE for me. I say it is a new and improved way of life.
These are just a few of the things that I have done to improve my life and the well being of my small children. I have thrown my microwave OUT! There is too much evidence that they are harmful to you and may be the cause of some types of cancers. No thank you! I no longer buy ANYTHING with monosodiumglutamate (MSG), high fructose corn syrup (what happened to good old SUGAR), hydrogenated/partially hydrogenated oils of any kind or saccharin in it. I grow my own food and purchase what I can not grow from ORGANICALLY GROWN companies. When I do buy at the store I read every single ingredient in everything. This includes shampoos, conditioners, lotions, sunscreens and body soaps, visit here.
I do my best to read as much as I can about herbs and their natural healing powers. I grow my own herbs for their healing qualities and for the process of preparing Home Cooked meals. I make my own teas with these herbs for my and my families ailments. I do not believe in sciences ability to recreate what nature produces.
I believe that if we were all to go back to the literal ‘bare necessities’ of life, of living with nature as a whole, we all could make a impact on our environments. If we all banned together to stop the sales of processed food products we could have an impact on the health and well being of everyone.
But, I know that these changes would cut deep into the pockets of the companies who feed off of us. I wonder how they plan to survive when they have no more of us to feed off of.
