Did you know that your body gets exposed to HUNDREDS of toxins every day?
If you’ve ever wondered where that headache came from… or why your mood sometimes swings… or why you can’t seem to think clearly, it’s probably because these toxins made their way into your bloodstream — without you even realising it.
It’s scary, I know. The worst part is these toxins can be found everywhere. In the water you drink… the food you eat… even on the clothes you wear. Where do they come from? Practically everything — the chemicals used to make plastics… vinyl… laundry detergent… household cleaners, you name it.
Seeing how big of a problem this is, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) set out to see just how big a threat these toxins are…
And in one study, they analysed the blood of newborns in Australian Hospitals. The scanned these newborn blood samples for KNOWN and hazardous metals and chemicals (some used in “heavy” industries)…
They found 287 DIFFERENT toxic metals and chemicals in the newborns’ blood.
Of course, the babies got it through their mum’s bloodstreams… which means that toxic pollutants are everywhere. What’s more, they have a very easy time getting absorbed through your skin.
The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention also knows how prevalent these toxins are. In one study, they took blood and urine samples of 2,400 people. They found around 215 toxic pollutants in these samples!
These pollutants include everything from lead, mercury, pesticides, to aluminum and the fire retardant BDE-47.
That’s why it’s so important to detox your body on a regular basis. Detoxing leads to increased energy, a strengthened immune system, less allergies and more efficient fat-burning.
Here are 4 ways you can detox naturally and avoid getting these toxins in your bloodstream in the first place…
1, Reduce your exposure to plastics and heavy cleaners. Heating your food in plastic containers, for example causes the release of PCBs which then leak into your food – so use glass dishes or PCB free plastic containers suitable for the microwave. If you’re cleaning the house, use “natural” cleaners that are not laden with heavy chemicals to do the job, as these can seep into your skin.
2. Eat cruciferous veggies. These are veggies like broccoli, kale, cauliflower and bok-choy. They contain compounds that help regulate the negative hormonal effects toxins can have on your body.
3. Milk thistle. You can find this at any health food store. It is believed to help cleanse your liver (which is highly important for great overall health.)
4. Chlorella. This usually comes in powder form. You can find it at your local health food store as well. Chlorella is special, in that it literally “grabs” onto heavy, toxic metals in your bloodstream and “flushes” them out, through a process known as chelation.
Don’t just clean your house. Clean out your body!
