4 Simple Ways to Reduce the Number of Chemicals in Your Life

Have you considered how many chemicals are around you every day? TheyÕre in your food, water, personal care items, closets, and other things. ItÕs easy to forget that many products are made with chemicals that can be harmful to your health.

How can these chemicals harm you?

* Your skin absorbs the chemicals you come into contact with - even from the air around you.

* Your lungs absorb more chemicals from the air you breathe.

* Your digestive system absorbs chemicals from your food.

Many health experts assert that these chemicals may be responsible for many of the ailments that are so prevalent today, such as autoimmune diseases, respiratory issues, ADHD, autism, cancer, and many more.

Fortunately, there are natural ways to reduce the number of chemicals in your life.

Try these tips to reduce the amount of chemicals you come into contact with that can negatively affect your health:

1. Get rid of perfumes, colognes, dryer sheets, and air fresheners. These products may smell nice, but theyre filled with toxic chemicals.

* Perfumes and colognes can have many harmful chemicals such as acetone, camphor, ethanol, ethyl acetate, and linalool. They usually have synthetic substances made from petroleum.

* Some of the health concerns linked to perfumes and colognes include respiratory issues, asthma, and allergies. In addition, many researchers admit that most of the chemicals in these products haven't been tested long-term, so no one knows how they'll affect people over time.

* Instead, use natural essential oils for your fragrances. Be sure to read the ingredients in all products you purchase, even if the label says its a natural product. Avoid chemicals you cant pronounce.

2. Avoid toxic makeup and other personal care products. Makeup and other personal care products, such as soaps, shampoo, and deodorant, are filled with toxic products that can harm your health.

* Your lipstick, blush, foundation, or eyeliner may have chemicals such as lead, arsenic, formaldehyde, or aluminum.

* It's easy for makeup to get inside your body because lipstick and lip gloss are on your lips throughout the day. You can also rub off foundation or powder and get it on your hands, which you later use to eat.

* The chemicals in makeup and other personal care products can increase the risk of cancer. They can also lead to skin issues, lesions, allergies, respiratory issues, irritation, and reproductive issues.

* Instead, look for natural brands with no chemicals. Also, try to make your own makeup from beeswax, salves, essential oils, and safe food dyes.

3. Change your cleaning supplies. One of the biggest sources of chemicals in the home is cleaning supplies.

* Cleaning supplies are filled with toxic chemicals that can affect your brain, liver, kidneys, lungs, and skin. They may cause allergies, irritation, skin issues, asthma and respiratory issues. They may also increase your risk of getting cancer.

* Substances such as ammonia, chlorine, or phthalates can be harmful.

* Some cleaning products can cause permanent burns on your skin even if a drop lands on you.

* Instead, use natural cleaning supplies or make your own. Vinegar, water, baking soda, baking powder, and cornstarch can be combined in many ways to make safer cleaning products at home.

4. Avoid processed foods. Your food can be a big source of chemicals in your life. Toxic substances can lurk in many grocery products.

* Artificial sweeteners in your baked goods or candy can lead to a higher risk of diabetes or cancer.

* Trans fats can clog arteries and cause cardiovascular disease.

* Preservatives like sodium benzoate and potassium benzoate are sometimes made from benzene, which has been linked to thyroid issues and cancers.

* Even food coloring can be dangerous because itÕs been associated with hyperactivity, brain issues, and allergies.

* Fortunately, you can make positive changes by reading labels and avoiding products that arenÕt safe. Switch to more organic and natural food. Use products as close to nature as you can get, such as fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats.

Chemicals surround you. TheyÕre in your breakfast and go with you to work. TheyÕre in your conference room at the office, cleaning closet next to your cubicle, and in all the lunch menus.

However, you can cut down on the chemicals in your life by taking positive steps and making changes toward more natural living. In return, your body will thank you with more vibrant health!
