Our bodies are made to filter toxins, but not at the rate we’re exposed to them each day. Cumulatively, these add up and can start to take a toll on our health. Is there anything we can do about it? From personal experience, I believe there is… Consider this your quick start guide to clean living — or rather clean(er) living!
A Word of Caution
Long term stress is more harmful than the occasional slice of frozen pizza for most people. My goal for this episode isn’t to stress you out or make you panic about all the toxins we’re exposed to. It’s to help you become aware of the toxins you can control so your body is more equipped to handle those we can’t. For your changes to be sustainable, I encourage you to consider making small changes over time rather than a bunch all at once. I’ve been on this journey since 2018 and am still learning new things every day. Give yourself some grace.
Why This Matters to Me
I’ve seen firsthand how changing my environment has impacted my health. I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease in 2022. Part of me was nervous I’d have to rely on meds the rest of my life. (If you know my birth control story, you know why that terrified me.) But, thank God, our bodies were designed to heal themselves given the right conditions. Nutritious food, clean air, and purified water have made such a difference in my life and I hope by sharing this, it can do the same in yours.
