You know it, and I know it, our bodies are exposed to a barrage of toxins every day.
It is time to fight back! With all of the pollutants in the environment, the rates of chronic disease including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity and numerous autoimmune diseases are happening at epidemic rates. Is it any wonder that your body doesn’t perform at maximum efficiency?
The constant onslaught of toxins in air you breathe, the food you eat and the chemical filled skin care products you put on your skin are over taxing your liver and influencing your genetics. Much of the damage that is done happens at a cellular level. Often this damage will show up on your skin as signs of premature aging. So what do you do? You unknowingly may be turning to anti-aging creams that are chalk full of chemical toxins!
It is time to fight back!
You can take control and improve your health! Starting with what you put on your skin. Did you know that the last time congress passed a law regulating the cosmetics industry was 1938? Or that there is only 1.5 pages in the federal law overseeing it? Yet at the same time there is a constant attack to discredit supplement companies or keeping us from knowing that our food contains genetically modified organisms?
It’s ok to fill your body and that of your children with toxins, but it is not ok for you to know if your food contains GMOs? Did you also know that there are over 1,400 harmful cosmetics ingredients banned for use in the European Union but only 11 in the United States? What do you think is going on here?
Many of the toxins used in your beauty produces are known hormone disrupters as they contain xenoestrogens. Which means they can disrupt estrogen and hormone balance. Pick up your face cream, body lotion or shampoo. Does it contain things only a chemist would know, such as paraben, sodium laurel sulfate, PEG-30, dipolydrydorxysterate, red dye 3, or triethanolamine? This is only a sampling of what you might find.
Let me ask you, do you want to put toxic chemicals on your skin?
Your skin is very porous and what goes on the skin will affect the body. Or would you rather use all natural ingredients that won’t disrupt your hormone balance and impact you and your family’s health? This affects all of us, men, women and children.
There is a young company out there that is environmentally conscious and uses only natural ingredients. In fact you can ask the company what each ingredient is an extract from. They will be happy to tell you and they will also share with you everything that is in their products.
That is why I have gotten behind this company as some of the large big box companies are trying to figure out how they did it. Why? Because they know that you and I are tired of the lack of transparency about what we are putting on our skin or what we are eating.
If you want to help your body start to detox the toxins, you first have to eliminate them as best you can. I encourage you to check out this company for yourself. I have joined forces with them because I believe it their product, and their mission.
The name of this company is Beauty Counter.
Beauty Counter’s mission is to get safe products into the hands of everyone. There are over 80,000 chemicals in the market today and only 10% of the 10,000 chemical in personal care products have any safety data! This is outrageous! Though the United States has banned only 11 ingredients, Beauty Counter as taken a proactive stance and has banned 1,500 ingredients and counting.

The other way you can fight back is by the food choices you make. Cleaning up your diet is another way to help your body to start to detox in a natural way to renew your body.
You can set up your own detox process by eating fresh, whole organic foods. Though this can be slightly more expensive, consider an investment in your health. Eating organically can not only decrease the toxic load on your body but can keep you healthy. One chronic ailment can cost you thousands of dollars and maybe your life.
I know this can be an expensive endeavor. That is why I actually do part of my shopping online at Thrive Market. Thrive Market offers the best-selling natural and organic products at wholesale prices. There is an annual membership fee of $60/year. Price compare with what you are spending locally. Think of Costco meets Whole Foods, but online. Thrive Market is also donates one membership for every paid membership to a low-income American family.
Thrive Market is a company that is first socially conscious, just like Beauty Counter is. Both companies give back to the community while help all of us make healthier choices for ourselves and our families.
Thrive Market contains over 4,000 products at 25-50% below retail cost. So now you have an option to help you eat healthy while not breaking your budget.
You can fight back and take control of your health by the speaking with your dollars. It is all about supply and demand. Demand to take back control!
I am a member with both of these companies and do have an affiliate relationship with them. I believe in what they are doing and their mission.
You can improve your health now by what you put on your skin or in your mouth.
Now that you know this information, I would encourage you to share this post with your family and friends. You deserve to know.
