Clear Out the Garbage

clear out the garbage

Common Sense Health: Detox, Diet & Physical Activities by Laurie Neverman

It's kind of amazing to me how far I've drifted from attempting to keep my family away from toxins and nasty crap that enters our bodies via shampoos, conditioners, soaps, cleaning products, foods, and so much more. How did I lose my way, when at one point I felt SO incredibly motivated to do everything I could to lessen my children's chances of toxins and chemicals entering their bloodstream? Where did I fall off the course?

I guess I am at a loss in finding the exact moment, as it was a gradual thing that has somehow crept up on me, whispering "Jenna, you're not doing this right."

I want to do this right.

I want to care what it is that I'm feeding them. I want to care what cleaning products I use, as everything that I use will end up affecting their respiratory systems, hormones, endocrine system. I want to put good products on my skin and theirs, products that will not negatively affect their hormones and bodies and how they were made. I want to care with a new fervor, about the garbage that is inside of us. I want it out.

I want to care with a new fervor, about the garbage that is inside of us. I want it out.

The source of the toxins, the source of the issues, stems so much from me and the type of environment I provide for my children.

Here are the things I am guilty of as of late:

  • Chick-fil-A all day, err day
  • "typical" cleaning products for counters, tables, bathrooms, etc.
  • "typical" handsoap products ---- my kids wash their hands about 86 million times a day, this is a big one to me
  • eating out, period.
  • lack of probiotics/vitamins so as to avoid typical meds when the kids get sick
  • lack of nutritional food (ie, "Just eat some fruit snacks!")

I am guilty of these things. I don't feel guilt due to what other people tell me I should be providing for and giving my children, I feel guilt because I flat out know what I should be providing and giving them.

I'm no dummy. I know what's right, and I know what's wrong. And what's right? Giving my children the very best that my means and my capabilities allow for.

I can provide my children with certain products and foods and information to become healthier. I can do this. I must. It is imperative that I get off my lazy tooshie, and do what is the best that I can do for my family. My husband, my three beautiful girls and me --- we deserve it.

I am excited that at this time in my life, when I am feel motivated to step it up for my family, that the following bundle seems to be just what the naturopath ordered.

I'm ready to make the decision to get educated, to get mentored, and to get equipped. I'm ready to clear out the garbage.

Who's with me?
