26 seconds is all it takes for the chemicals on your skin to reach your bloodstream. The chemicals we surround ourselves with in our homes affect our entire bodies from head to toe. Kate Doubler, of www.realfoodrn.com, talks about easy and cheap solutions to replace the toxic chemicals under your kitchen sink with effective and beautifully aromatic healthy alternatives.
In this Episode You’ll Discover:
- What are you breathing in and using daily that could be damaging your health?
- Recipes that will BENEFIT your health
- Holistic healing has been around for so much longer than western medicine, so what if we step back and look back at older methods?
- Finding health and wellness through food.
- What are the standard chemicals we are surrounded by and how to avoid them.
- Many problems are linked to the chemicals in standard cleaners: cancer and auto immune disease.
- When you smell something like a new mattress, or piece of furniture, and you smell something, that’s a chemical, not an aroma. It releases PDBD’s and this is a hormonal disrupter.
- Antibacterial soaps often have endocrine disrupters.
- Castile Soap- (coconut oil base) or doctor Bronner’s is a better alternative.
- Bacteria and microorganisms are the first forms of life, they mutate, they change, so putting strong antibacterial chemicals into soaps, we are causing them to grow stronger, mutate, and change, which makes us have to increase our doses of antibiotics. And these mega doses are causing problems in our gut, which is where our immune system lives. There is a time and place for antibiotics, but educate yourself about when they are truly necessary.
- Humans have more bacteria cells than human cells.
- Natural cleaners WORK.
- Thieves cleaner can be used for nearly everything! It’s also very economical and can save you money.
- Window cleaner- recipe below- use newspaper to wipe it, it takes out streaks.
- Use alcohol or epsom salts, or rock salt, to help oil mix into sprays because oil floats on water
- The word “fragrance” in products can be very toxic. It’s not a regulated phrase. Be careful.
- Fragrance is synthetic, essential oils are plant derived, natural.
- Kate’s favorite health routines and supplements: Ningxia Red, collagen in mushroom coffee, diffuse oil every morning, down time, meditation, mood oils, Frankincense for skin
- Holistic and alternative health has to come from a desire from the patient because it is a lifestyle. It’s whole body. It’s sleep, movement, diet, everything.
- It starts with food.
- Sometimes “essential” oils are synthetic. You need therapeutic grade.
