Chemicals in Plastic and Earthing

It's amazing how many aspects of health are affected by the environment. By that, I don't only mean the natural surroundings. Human beings are exposed to a greater number of synthetic chemicals than ever before. These substances are in the food chain, our homes and even in the air we breathe. This is a fact that is universally accepted and understood. But what's not as clear is exactly what kind of an impact they have within the body.

Many authorities in the health care field advise two primary strategies to avoid chemical and environmental dangers: limit exposure whenever possible and try to spend more time in a natural setting.

Tuesday - Chemicals in Plastic May Endanger Children and Adults

Wednesday - A Natural, Low Carb Chipotle Taco Recipe with a Twist

Thursday - What is "Earthing" or "Grounding"?

Friday - Natural Remedies for Rheumatoid Arthritis

The links I've provided above, from, offer practical advice about how to protect yourself from chemically-induced health risks via an improved diet, limiting exposure to man-made toxins, reconnecting to the Earth and using alternative remedies for chronic health conditions.

Modern technology is both a blessing and a curse. But we can often derive the greatest good from 21st century living by making judicious choices in our daily life and occasionally reminding ourselves of the wisdom that history provides. I believe that the arena of natural medicine is an excellent vehicle in which we can integrate these principles. I hope you'll agree!
