With my husband being a doctor, I have learned and am constantly learning new information about things in our everyday life that are dangerous to our health and are making our bodies toxic.
Although you might not know it, there are environmental, household, food and life factors that play a role in how toxic you are. From the moment of conception to your current age, you have been around “stuff” that has gotten into your body (and even your mind) and could possibly causing you to suffer from health problems.
Sometimes it’s easy to make statements like “A little won’t hurt me!” or “Everything’s going to kill us some how so what’s the big deal?” However, God gave us wisdom to make the right decisions for our family.

“I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life so that you and your children may live.” Deuteronomy 30:19

I am almost certain God planned for us to choose to live a healthy life! In the modern age of convenience, it’s true, we simplycan not avoid everything, however, there are steps we can take to help our children and family lessen our toxicity in our bodies and live a healthier life.
If you take one step at a time you won’t get overwhelmed! As you read about these toxins to remove from your life, I encourage you to think about some baby-steps that you may want to take and to dig deeper and research to find out the “why” for yourself. When you find the why for choices you and your family make, you can help teach others.

1. Household Cleaners

Everyday cleaners found on the shelves of grocery stores are full of petrochemicals that are hazardous to our health. When you clean with them, they get into the air and are sucked into the air vents which keep releasing the toxic fumes out.
Take a spray cleaner for your kitchen counters for example, every time you clean, not only do the chemicals get released into the air but also leave a residue on the table (even though you wiped it up) where food is prepared and then eaten.
