The Truth About Your Health and 3 Areas for Improvement
The word "healthy" use to mean I was eating the right things and I was exercising daily. I was a picture of health. So why then was I not able to get pregnant in my early thirties? Why was I feeling so compromised at such a young age?
It wasn't until I went to a doctor in Europe who told me I was living in a toxic bath. My "healthy lifestyle" was not taking into account the whole picture of what health included. Despite my healthy efforts, I was drowning in highly elevated amounts of mercury, disrupting my hormones. My body was hugely compromised.
Soon, I realized my health was no longer just about what I ate or how much I exercised. It was also about my stress levels and the toxins I was exposed to in my environment. I learned that all the products I was using and putting on my skin, our largest organ, was actually doing more harm than good.
Thankfully, it has lead to my passion and movement to empower you to make better choices around your health and the health of the planet.
Health is no longer based on just what you put on the end of your fork, although Hippocrates was right, food is medicine! We now know the importance of moving our body and the harmful effects of sitting at a desk all day, every day has on our health. But what about all the stress we are exposed to?
Our minds need balance as well so we can manage all the exposure to stress in our modern world that seems to be one of the largest health care crisis we face today. Suicides, depression, anxiety, exhaustion...it's hitting us all harder than we are handling it and causing a major depletion to our health. Practicing mindfulness is a hugely important part of your overall health. Lots more on that to come!
Finally, there is the environmental exposure to toxins that our lurking in our industries.
It is now known that 95% of all cancers have now been linked to our diet and environment.
1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 woman will be diagnosed to cancer in their lifetime in large part due to toxic chemicals in our environment that we are exposed to every day.
The US has not passed a major federal law regulating the cosmetic industry since 1938.
80,000 chemicals are registered for use in consumer products. Most of these do not have any health or safety data, especially those ingredients used in beauty. Only 30 of those chemicals have been banned in the US
