Living Naturally is hard for me traveling all of the time. I know on the airplane I do drink a lot mineral water. The infomation on Sodium Flouride that Debi gives is a eye opener for me. I thought is was all the same.
Living Naturally - Natural Health and Skincare
Author: Debi Harris
Today's lifestyle leaves us open to a daily chemical assault, from the air we breathe to the water we drink, and the skincare and haircare products we use daily.It is not known what the long-term effects of these chemicals will be, but one thing's for sure, it can't be good.
Some people are unaware of the huge amounts of additives in their food, water and personal care products. Some are too busy to care, and others have the attitude ' Yes I know, it's awful, but what can you do?'
The informed, wise people out there though, are taking a different view. Any species that fails to live in harmony with it's natural environment will eventually make itself extinct. Fact. It's nature. If human beings carry on the way they are going, they will indeed end up extinct..
For instance, 100 years ago, cancer affected approximately 1 in every 50 people. Now it strikes 1 in 3. It won't be long before it is striking half the population. It doesn't take a genius to realise that our lifestyle is the biggest factor influencing this increase.
Diet especially, is of paramount importance when it comes to maintaining good health, but so many people ignore this fact and fill their ( and their kids) bodies with low-nutrient , chemical and additive filled junk.
When people eat meat, they are consuming the same chemicals and hormones that the animal ate. Obesity is on the sharp increase, and it's not surprising considering that the majority of obese people are meat-eaters. They eat the meat, the meat is full of growth hormones and chemicals, the growth hormones are absorbed into the human body, so the person gets fatter. Want my advise - if your are overweight and seriously want to lose weight - go vegetarian.
If your body had a choice, it would ask for lots of fresh organic fruit and vegetables, preferably raw. Your body would choose clean , fresh water ( I mean pure bottled spring water, not the stuff that comes out of your tap at home). Think about how much fresh water you consume in a day, and by that I mean water not mixed with squash, tea , coffee or anything else. I bet it's not much. Do your body a favour, next time you reach for the fizzy drink, reach for the mineral water instead.
Tap water is just another way that we are being poisoned on a daily basis. It contains chemicals, hormones and in a lot of areas it also contains flouride. Yes, sodium flouride , that old favourite. The stuff they put in toothpaste is the same stuff they use to make rat-poison ! Surprised. What people get confused about is calcium flouride, which is the stuff naturally found in water which helps keep our teeth and bones strong. People think this is what goes into toothpaste and the water supply, wrong.
Sodium flouride is a by-product of aluminium smelting and other industries. It's nothing more than toxic waste. For years it was very expensive to dispose of, until someone decided to make up some rubbish about it being good for our teeth, so they could get away with disposing of it in our water supply. This of course was done without public agreement. Nice, thanks for that, I'll stick to the bottled stuff.
Sodium flouride builds up in the body over time, and causes cancer, it makes bones softer so they fracture more easily, and it doesn't protect your teeth, in fact it has the opposite effect. Sodium flouride is a main ingredient in anesthetic, hypnotic, and psychiatric drugs as well as military nerve gas. Sodium flouride promotes mental disturbances. The Nazi's added it to the water supply at the concentration camps during the war, to help sterilize the prisoners and force them to be calm and submissive.
Sodium Flouride has a poisonous and narcotic effect on a certain area of the brain, which makes the person submissive and less able to resist those who wish to control him. It's a way of controlling of the masses. Hmmm, makes you wonder what the government have in mind for us today.....
When we look at the skincare and haircare products we use daily, most contain sodium laurel ( or laureth ) sulfate. This is a foaming agent which is so harsh that it was first used as engine degreaser! Fancy that, washing your skin and hair in something harsh enough to strip oil off a garage floor. No wonder we're all spending a fortune on moisturisers! Hmmm, am I just paranoid or do you think there could be some method in their madness......
So they put this SLS in your shampoo,shower gel, bath foam, toothpaste etc, and then add moisturising ingredients to the same products to counteract the drying effects of the SLS. Why not just buy products without SLS? That's what the smart people are doing. That's what I do.
Since I stopped using commercial shampoos and skincare products, and switched to all natural skin care products, and natural hair care products, my skin and hair are gorgeous. My hair that was once frizzy and dry is now curly and shiny.
Since I began using organic, aromatherapy based skin care, my skin that was once so shiny from all the grease and additives from my previous moisturiser, is now so soft , much younger looking, and I don't need powder or foundation because my skin is great!
I use non-flouride toothpaste, and I take vitamin and mineral supplements every day. I eat organic fruit and vegetables only, I drink only bottled water, I am vegetarian so I eat a very natural , low fat diet, that's full of nutrients. I have never felt so healthy.
If you value your body, your health and your life, as well as those of your children, you owe it to yourself to change your lifestyle right now.
