So we know we can help protect our insides with chemical-free whole foods, but what about things we are exposed to outside the body? So how do we effectively start Detoxing the outside of the Body? Household cleaning products and toiletries are big players when it comes to chemical contamination. Many people don’t realise that these products are absorbed through our skin and right into our bloodstream. Chemicals burden our detoxification organs and cause all sorts of nasty diseases. They are also hormone (or endocrine) disruptors and can affect your fertility, immune system and metabolism to name a few.
It’s important to be mindful of what you’re exposed to around your house. What kind of products are in your shower, toiletries bag and your cleaning cupboard? You don’t need to complicate these things. You can make your own cleaning products and there are lots of natural soaps, deodorants and other beauty products available on the market.
We know that replacing things at home can be overwhelming and costly, so why not start by replacing one new product per week or as it runs out. Making your own cleaning products will save a nice chunk of change that you can invest in other health areas of your life. If you do choose to buy, remember to always read the ingredients labels as the packaging, although very pretty, can sometimes be misleading.
