Staying healthy is more than seeing your doctor once a year for a check-up. Today many diseases are treated with medications. Those medications came on the market because of years of research, planning, finances and more. But there is something else that treats disease. That is, good healthy, nonGMO foods and chemical-free cleaning products such as Meyers, Seventh Generation, BioKleen, just to name a few. Health food stores are full of healthier products. Treatments such as acupuncture, homeopathy, and other alternative methods are getting people well without harsh treatments.
These products also help keep our water systems and household air safer.
Co-Op America has a directory of companies selling healthy products. The directory is about $10 and is invaluable. When I got sick from environmental illness due to an over-exposure to toxic mold I relied on that directory because I had nowhere to turn even though I was part of the movement in the 70s to use natural and chemical-free products. I had to wear organic clothing because clothing is filled with toxic chemicals. Sheets, towels, rugs, furniture, mattresses each contain chemicals.
Changing your products and lifestyle to healthier means does not have to happen all at once, like it did for me. Take your time, but do it! Your body will appreciate it. Chemicals cause neuro-damage and brain damage. Do some research. Don't be complacent believing that if a product is on the shelf it is safe.
