Healing Your Body Through Detoxification

Healing Your Body Through Detoxification

Firstly, let me say that I am not a doctor. I make no medical claims and am just sharing my personal experiences. Please consult your own physician before undergoing any cleanse to make sure it is right for you in your current state of health.

Now that that is out of the way.

Every few years it is a good idea to clear and detoxify the body. Many will argue saying “But the body detoxifies naturally. You do not need to do this.” In an ideal world – that is 100% correct. Your body is designed to detoxify itself. The problem is that our human bodies were never designed to deal with the bombardment of toxic crap that is around us daily.

  • GMO Foods
  • Processed Foods
  • Preservatives
  • Chemical Additives
  • Coloring
  • Chemtrails
  • Vaccines
  • Medications
  • Household cleaners
  • Makeup
  • Shampoos, soaps, and body washes
  • Laundry detergent and fabric softeners
  • Antibiotic laden meats

All of this can add up to an inability by your body to properly and efficiently filter out what’s being put on and in. This can lead to metabolic issues, headaches, joint pain, cancer, autoimmune issues, skin problem, and so much more. The list is gigantic.

If you have never done a COLON CLEANSE before that is the first cleanse you need to consider.

Think about the plumbing in your house. Pipes can get clogged. Debris sticks to the walls and eventually the passageways become smaller, and less water can get through them. The same goes for your intestines. We all have a massive 15 feet of intestine in our bodies. It twists and turns and when the build-up is caked on the wall’s nutrients pass through less easily and worse, they pass through without being able to be absorbed. That means the food you eat is just sliding on through and only a percentage of the nutrition is getting into your body before being eliminated.

The average person who eats a standard American diet and has never before done a colon cleanse can expect to eliminate between 10 to 30 lbs. of impacted debris!

CHOOSING A CLEANSE

There are tons on the market. I can only speak to the ones I have tried and used successfully.

 WHOLE-BODY CELLULAR DETOXIFICATION

I do want to note that if you are very ill currently you need to choose a cleanse that is designed to be thorough yet gentle. Some of them will work incredibly well but if you are already sick you do not need to be pushing your body by flooding it with a toxin release.

The recommended cleanse if you currently have cancer or any other serious illness is BE PURE (which has been renamed Champy’s Choice).
I have done this cleanse and it is dramatic, effective, amazing, and yet very easy on the body. This is a cellular level full body all organ cleanse. It is safe and effective.

Click to read more about this cleanse including ordering and info as to how to do the cleanse and what I personally experienced with it.

MIRACLE MINERAL SOLUTION (MMS) Also full-body cellular but not gentle.
WARNING: NOT GENTLE BUT VERY EFFECTIVE. Please note that Miracle Mineral Solution needs to be measured accurately and carefully. It is a powerful cleanse and needs to be respected. Do not do this one unless you have a bathroom you can stay nearby. I am not joking here. If you take even a little too much or you hit a pocket of toxins that is a lot for your body to handle if you are not right by a restroom you will be sorry.

This is one of the most powerful cleanses on the market. In my opinion, it’s also one of the more volatile. If you are not an experienced cleanser when you do hit toxins you may think that it’s the cleanse making you sick because the results are very dramatic. It may feel like food poisoning. You will be expelling things from both ends and then 20 minutes later be just fine. Just proceed with caution and go up in dosage really really slowly.  

COLON CLEANSES

AIM Herbal Fiber Blend: This is a psyllium husk-based herbal cleanser. It is available in powder or capsule. I have only done the powder and I am willing to say that I would order the capsules next time. While it doesn’t taste bad. It does not taste like raspberries. It is thick, chunky, and hard to mix. That said it is also very effective.You can do it strictly as a cleanse and fast with it or you can drink it alongside a light healthy diet of vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts, water, and juices. 1 Teaspoon twice per day mixed with 8oz of water or juice. Gradually increase to 1 tablespoon daily. Use for 3 months. Then for maintenance as needed. This is a gentle cleanse with great results.

Coffee Enema – Brew a 12 oz cup of organic coffee (important to avoid pesticides) and mix with another 12 to 24 oz of room temperature water (not tap) so that it’s lukewarm. You will need an enema bag and set. Pour coffee and water mixture into the bag and screw on the hose with the provided nozzle. Use lubricant on the nozzle and insert it into the rectum carefully. Lay down on your right side and slowly (using the hose clamp) allow the liquid to flow into your intestines. Go slowly and pause when you feel cramping. The longer you can hold it and just relax the better and further up it will flow. Once you have emptied the bag breathe deeply and relax allowing it to gurgle through your intestinal tract. You will feel the urge to let it out. Slide the hose out clamping it so no more coffee flows out. You can then use the restroom as needed and allow the coffee/water to come out. It will clear out all backed-up debris in your lower intestines and hopefully reach the upper intestine as well. This is very beneficial and can help your body make glutathione naturally to help clean the liver as well. This is a one-time cleanse that takes about 30 minutes. It can be repeated as needed.

Apple Juice Cleanse – Organic apple juice. Do not eat. Just drink as much apple juice as you can for 1 day. It will clear out any loose debris in your intestinal tract. It acts fast within the first couple of hours. It is not a deep cleanse. It is effective though!

—–

The ones I do not recommend are Oxypowder (talk about severe cramping!) and Colon Blow (though I do recommend going to their site and reading the testimonials because they are hysterical). Colon Blow lives up to its name and it is terrifying. You think “This isn’t working” then 5 minutes later you are running to the restroom as fast as humanly possible. Unless you are a glutton for punishment, choose a different method.

No matter if this is a first-time or a regular thing – it is always a good idea to choose to do a colon cleanse first before other cleanses are planned. The reason is that you want to make sure whatever old food, debris, toxins, or whatever may be in there in your cells that you break loose is to be flushed out of the body efficiently not stuck again in the colon and reabsorbed back into the body to cause more issues.

GALLBLADDER KIDNEY CLEANSE

If you have had your gallbladder removed, please do not do this cleanse. (2 days and you are totally done. If you have any stones they will come out, painlessly).

ALTERNATE NEUROTOXIN LIVER CLEANSE – FAST and EFFECTIVE

Find an IV clinic that offers a Glutathione IV Push. Glutathione exists naturally in the body and helps clear and clean the liver. This is a super cleansing of the liver and blood in a matter of 30 to 45 minutes for the IV to go through. You will feel detox symptoms that evening and possibly into the next day. Depending on health you may need to repeat it up to 3x.

You can also take glutathione by capsule in powder form up to a maximum of 4000 mg per day. It is slower but still helps greatly.

 1000 mg a day is a maintenance dosage to keep things running cleanly.

Let’s talk Herxheimer Reaction

A Herxheimer reaction is what is known as a healing crisis. It is positive, just not fun. As toxins leave your cells, they enter the bloodstream. When this happens you often experience a “revisiting” of old symptoms. You may feel flu-like, have a headache, feel achy, tired, sleepy, and even have the possibility of mood swings. You can tell the difference between getting sick and Herxheimer reaction in that a cold will stick with you. You simply feel bad. With a healing crisis, it comes in waves. You may feel crappy and then 20 minutes later think “Oh.. hey, wait, I am ok!”.

This lasts only as long as the cleanse and drinking lots of water will help flush it out faster.

Do We Even Care About Our Veterans?

The way our Veterans are treated is shameful.
The way our military is treated is abusive.

These are people who volunteer to give their time and effort, years of their lives, to help protect and defend this country only to be abused by the government. Sent places they may or may not really need to be, put in contact with chemicals and toxins they never should be in contact with and injected with who the hell knows what purposefully as an experiment.

Then, as if that’s not bad enough, they make them fight to prove the damage that is visible to anyone who isn’t brain dead.

So many vets right now are suffering.

And yet? The help they get – is the VA. Part of the very machine that did this to them. This is like a nationalized case of forced Stockholm Syndrome.

I’m watching this play out first hand as well as secondarily with many others…. Something needs to change.

We are all having a hard time to some extent right now because of the state of the world… but if you happen to know a vet? It might be a really good idea to reach out to them and just let them know you are there and you care.

Dear Vets in my life… I’m sending love ❤ your way.

Sarah

Gulf War Syndrome. Is there any relief?

I have been writing in the field of natural health and medicine for 20 years now. Though I am a great detective this one has me stumped and in figuring out a way to either heal or at minimum, lessen symptoms related to Veterans and Gulf War Syndrome, I have a personal stake.

I am asking my readers for help this time.
If you have a loved one dealing with this horrible grouping of symptoms related to service and exposure to Sarin gas and potentially other toxins they came in contact with, would you please message me if you have found ways to help?

My husband is a Navy Vet. He is having symptoms so severe they are becoming a problem with daily life…


He cant sleep (severe insomnia)

Massive night sweats (literally soaking the sheets, his clothes, and even through a mattress protector)

Headaches

Aching joints

Declining mental state

Mood swings

Inability to focus or think clearly

and the list goes on.

We only recently figured out what this was and while that is a good first step, we are floundering for what comes next having seemingly tried everything natural and pharmaceutical.

If you are out there – please help.

Sincerely,
Sarah

COVID – Graphine Oxide Toxic Blood Coagulating NanoParticles

Think that PCR test or COVID ‘Vaccine’ are there to help you prevent illness?
You have been bamboozled.
These toxic nanoparticles are there to kill you… slowly if you are healthy and immediately if you already have issues.

Watch the video: https://rumble.com/vj25zh-covid-19-is-caused-by-graphene-oxide-introduced-by-several-ways.html?

Confused about the vaccination issue? Join the crowd…

Because if you’ve been watching the news, then you know things have reached a fever pitch…

You see, after my friends, Dr. Patrick Gentempo and Jeff Hays, released their breakthrough docu-series, Vaccines Revealed in 2017, the lies and corruption regarding government mandated vaccines were finally exposed.

Their findings? Those vaccines can actually MAKE you sick instead of preventing you from getting sick.

This has released a storm of outrage and demands for investigations into the underhanded practices of Big Pharma…

But with all this arguing and back-and-forth, you still have crucial questions, including:

– If the law says so, should I vaccinate my kids?
– If they’re already vaccinated, what do I do next?

We’ve got your answers right here.

The Red Tide Organophosphate Cleanse – How I Healed Myself

I was a medical mystery. Living here in Southwest Florida back in December of 2017 I had a sudden onset massive headache that no doctor could figure out. Many medical doctors, many blood tests, MRI’s, Echocardiogram, EKG, Acupuncture, Chiropractic, Massage, ENT’s, Endocrinologists and more. I had reached a point where I had literally tried everything I could think of.

It wasn’t that I was getting frequent headaches, it was one solid headache for 11 months interrupted only by pain medication. When it would wear off, I was again left clutching my head in tears.

Things changed when I happened to read an article in Newsweek that said Red Tide had been plaguing Florida for 10 months. That was the exact time my headache began. I started to wonder, could they be linked?

What I found is that currently in our water is not only the yearly red tide (brevetoxin) but also the blue-green algae (cyanotoxin) both are toxic to wildlife and humans. As if that wasn’t enough, the runoff water being released from Lake Okeechobee has pesticide and herbicide chemicals in it including glyphosate (Monsanto’s popularly sold weed killer RoundUp) which can lead to organophosphate toxicity in humans and animals alike. It is a known carcinogenic that is somehow not yet banned.

I researched and called the health department and even the CDC who both told me “There is no test”. That simply isn’t the case. You can be tested for cyanotoxin via a nasal swab. You can be tested by blood or urine for the brevetoxin in Red Tide though I have yet to find a lab that offers the test needed. All three toxins are in a group of similar neurotoxic compounds which are tasteless and odorless. They can be aerosolized into the wind and carried for miles inland. Toxicity can result from breathing the toxic air, touching it via skin, or eating contaminated seafood. Organophosphate poisoning is easily tested using the Cholinesterase RBC and Plasma blood test. This test was my answer.

When I got the test results back, initially I saw that my values were in green. I assumed (wrongly) that meant I was “ok”. In reading the CDC website, it clearly stated that several doctors and researchers agreed despite the lab values, that toxicity can present itself starting at only 40% of the maximum marked value. This landed me at 78% on the RBC and 53% on the plasma.

I had been being poisoned. The culprit was organophosphates. I am a Graphic Designer and Writer who works inside and am not exposed to pesticides or herbicides of any kind in a normal way. I live at 6 miles inland from the water.

Believing I had found the root cause I went about searching for a solution and thankfully, I found one. Working with my long time Chiropractor/Nutritionist who consulted with other physicians to come up with the best solution for a neurotoxin cleanse, one was chosen.

It is a 10 day cleanse that is intended to release the held toxins within the liver as well as other cells in the body.

An honest review: I have done lots of other cleanses in the past 20 years. This one I started at the end of a head cold simply because of timing with my upcoming wedding and wanting to be finally better. It made it even more difficult to tell if it was totally detox symptoms or left over head cold.

Days 1-3 It was not too bad. Slightly sniffly with a hot head, feeling tired.

Days 4-8 it felt as if I had a massive head cold or flu. I could tell it was detox symptoms because it came and went in waves rather than just sticking around. Day 6, though I work at home, I was unable to work at all and spent the day pretty much face down on the bed. Day 7 and 8 were rough too. Lots of hot Epsom salts baths trying to soak and sweat it out.

Day 9 I began to feel somewhat human again and just took it really easy.

Day 10 I was again feeling somewhat normalized. Headache now is gone.

More info on what to expect when doing a cleanse – what is a Herxheimer Reaction?

I have not had a chance to verify this change through a repeat blood test, but what I do know is that my 11-month debilitating headache is now blissfully gone and I am feeling more like myself again though I do still have other symptoms at least that massive head pain that woke me up at 3 am daily taking more pain medication is no longer. While the damage done from the organophosphate poisoning can never be undone, at least with the cleanse, I feel like I have been able to clear my body’s ability to deal with it better. Rather like changing the oil filter regularly on your car…

*If you do the cleanse and stay in Florida you will need to redo it every year or so because you are still being exposed. I myself am choosing to move out of state to save my health.

TO DO THE CLEANSE: Please contact the office of Dr. Jason Kaster Fort Myers, Florida at 239-332-2555 www.drkasters.com info@drkasters.com and let them know you would like to be considered for the Red Tide/Organophosphate cleanse. You do not have to be in the area to do the cleanse. The testing and the cleanse together I believe is $400. (More info on symptoms)

Disclaimer: Because it is such an intense internal cleanse and many of us are incredibly overloaded with toxins if you are not in the best of health otherwise it is often wise to do it as a doctor supervised cleanse rather than just trying to go it alone. My intent is to heal, not to harm anyone and I myself am not a doctor so I am not simply posting the products to use on here.

Sincerely,

Sarah J. Barendse

Cancer isn’t an illness

Cancer is not even an illness, it’s a symptom.

You are toxic and a tumor is your body’s attempt to keep you alive. Many people have so many toxins in their systems that it could kill you, so the body builds a bubble (or encapsulation) in order to keep you safe (a tumor).

This is why needle biopsies, mammograms or other invasive “life saving” diagnostic techniques are dangerous. They can potentially release what your body is trying to keep you safe from. You will often hear after a biopsy or a surgery “Oh it was a fast growing cancer” – (what they wont say is that it spread because of their actions).

Scans such as thermography are far better…. Ladies I know we are reaching the age of being told “You need a mammogram” = Just say NO!

Treat your body well. Keep your Ph in check and do detoxifications.. even if you do already have a diagnosis of cancer….
Chemo is not therapy. It is a poison…. You cannot heal yourself with poison.

Don’t declare war on yourself or on cancer….. work WITH Your body to heal.

(((( steps off soap box now))))

I do it yearly!

*This is not an offer of medical advice but common sense that you aren’t getting in most places these days! Think for yourself and be well!

Urgent Health Warning!

Warning! Do not eat, drink, breathe or touch anything.
(that’s a viable solution, right?) We have now identified that the majority of non-organic foods as well as household substances on the planet contain or have been exposed to ingredients that are toxic to your health. The manufacturers know it, and just simply don’t care.

So…

Now what are you supposed to do?
In all honesty? It beats the **** out of me.
I have been blogging now for several years on alternative healing, health, additives, toxins, and our crazy genetically modified food supply. It seems the news and the world in general just gets crazier on a daily basis. It has reached a point now where even as educated and informed as I am I have no idea how to really avoid ALL of the dangers and pit falls, in fact I am really not even sure in modern day life if it is currently possible.

 

I am reaching a point of frustration and I know I am not alone in this. Companies lie, Main Stream media can’t be trusted as they have become more about paid propaganda than reporting facts and truth, Scientists can be paid off to make results of a study conform to the highest bidder, Medical Doctors value kickbacks over patients, it seems like in 2015 everything and everyone is for sale. Truth no longer matters, only profit.

 

Is there any hope?

 

Amidst the shysters, the greed, big corporations, politicians working against us all for their own personal gain – thankfully there are a few bright spots.

 

One entity working towards a clean toxic free healthy world is The Pure Integrity Verified Seal. This seal was the brainchild of Lynnette Marie, The Organic Guru of Fuelforthebody.com.

5 Day Post Holiday Juice Cleanse!

Even the healthiest and most well intentioned of us can get derailed during the holiday season. Parties to attend, dinners to go to, celebrations, which include food and drink, are everywhere.

Now that we have made it to 2015 it’s time to reset and get back on track. One fantastic and easy way to do that is with a juice fast. Having had such fantastic results, I had a multitude of people asking me for directions. Here they are!

DIRECTIONS:

1. Upon waking
Drink (2) – 8oz glasses of water with lemon or lime added for extra detoxification.
2. Throughout the day: Drink (4) 12oz. glasses of juice
3. After each juice, drink 16oz. of water or more.

NOTES ON JUICE FASTS:

By “juice” I am referring to fresh juices made of vegetables and fruits with spices added in if you choose. (Turmeric and Ginger are two great choices). Please do not do a juice fast with store bought juices. They are not fresh and are often depleted of vitamins, minerals, and have additives as well as sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and even artificial sweeteners, which are all toxic. *Please, if at all possible, use organic non-gmo fruits and veggies.

When a juice reads “natural flavors” – it can be made from just about anything – including MSG and or artificial sweeteners. This will only serve to add in more toxins and defeat the purpose of the cleanse and sabotage your results!

It is easiest to make or buy all of the juices in the morning so you don’t have to run out to get anything. Having everything prepared helps to keep you motivated and quell the urge to cheat.

I have found that juicing yourself is not any less cost than having the fruits and veggies juiced for you. If you have a Whole Foods or Organic market with a juice bar it really can save time and mess to clean up with out additional cost.

The first day is always the hardest. We are used to the routine of eating breakfast, lunch, dinner and sometimes snacks. Keeping yourself busy seems to be key in success, at least for myself.

Juicing is an amazingly powerful way to clear and clean your body.This article lists very accurately the cleansing phases and what your body goes through as the cleanse progresses.

MY EXPERIENCE:
DAY 1
1 glass grapefruit juice
8 glasses of water
1 glass of carrot juice
½ bottle of grape kombucha
1 glass of beet, parsley, celery, and cilantro

By only 1:30pm I was already experiencing detoxification symptoms. My face was hot and flushed and I felt a bit teary eyed and a little dizzy. I slept for 11 hours that evening. As your body clears itself out, rest is needed.

DAY 2
1 glass grapefruit juice
8 glasses of water
2 glasses of carrot juice
1 glass beet, parsley, celery juice, horseradish
½ bottle grape kombucha
Added lemon and lime essential oils to water for extra detoxification power

I was still very teary eyed, sniffly, and blah feeling. Again I needed more sleep than usual. I clocked in 10 hours of pillow time.

DAY 3
1 glass grapefruit juice
8 glasses of water
2 glasses of carrot juice
1 glass beet, parsley, celery juice, horseradish
½ bottle grape kombucha
Added lemon and lime essential oils to water for extra detoxification power

On the third day of detoxification I will be honest. I felt awful. It’s like having a major head cold. My tongue was coated white and even a tongue scraper would not get it all off. Though I am glad I chose to do this for my health, it was difficult to go through. I will say though – I was not hungry at all during these first days. I missed food on a habitual and psychological level only.

DAY 4
1 glass fresh squeezed orange juice
2 glasses carrot juice
1 glass celery, cucumber, parsley, apple
Added lemon and lime essential oils to water for extra detoxification power
9 glasses of water

By day 4 I was feeling better than the previous day, but I was still experiencing some detox symptoms: slight headache & watery eyes.

I have had friends ask me “Why are you doing that if it’s making you feel bad?”

My answer is that feeling like this now and allowing my body to clean itself out on a cellular level will prevent sickness and disease.
To me, it is very worth the inconvenience.

DAY 5
1 glass carrot juice
1 glass celery, cucumber, parsley, broccoli, cilantro
2 glasses of beet, apple, carrot, celery, ginger
Added lemon and lime essential oils to water for extra detoxification power
9 glasses of water
BIG SALAD!!!!

By day 5 I was still experiencing some detox symptoms so I decided to continue the cleanse, modified. I am juicing during the day and at night eating a big organic salad.
From there I will merge into eating all organic again including as much raw food as possible.

For more on detox symptoms please read my article “Is your detox making you feel sick?”

RESULTS:

My skin looks clearer and has more of a glow
My hair is shinier
I lost -7lbs
-10.5” overall
I feel better with more energy
All food cravings have stopped
My appetite has decreased and I am still pretty satisfied to drink juice all day

You would never run your car endlessly without the maintenance of a good oil change once in a while, so why do that to your body? Our bodies are intended to be self cleaning (as is the argument I hear often). I agree, however, they were not designed to deal with an an endless array of toxins in our food, air and being put on our bodies in varying ways. The majority of us are on toxic overload….. It can lead to feeling run down, ill and ultimately disease or death.

I highly recommend juice fasting once in a while! Your body will thank you!

Sarah’s Top Picks: Non-Toxic Personal and Household Products!

For several years now I have been writing about how toxic our worlds have become including our own households. It has been an adventure in label reading and research trying to find alternatives to the everyday grocery and department store stocked chemical laden products we are used to.

 

My first goal started with finding products that have not been animal tested. From there I then added to that wanting ingredients that you could pronounce and recognize as well as know that they are from nature and not scientifically created and safe to use on your body and in your home.

 

I do not mean GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe – The FDA’s sticker of approval) I mean that they are actually healthy to use and not damaging to the body in any way.

 

The two are totally different categories as the FDA has approved levels of highly toxic, corrosive and carcinogenic substances in just about everything on the market.

 

It has been trial and error once finding items that meet the criteria.

Many products, though the ingredients are good, just don’t work well.

 

I have wasted a lot of time and money over the past few years. In doing so I think I can save you some legwork and give you a point in the right direction.

 

PRODUCTS THAT WORK AND KEEP YOU HEALTHY!


 

HOUSEHOLD CLEANING:

CLEAN by Healthy Home Company is the only product I seem to need!

CLEAN brings back memories of childhood, when ad campaigns all said that your dishes should be “squeaky clean”… with CLEAN, they actually squeak! Plus it smells like tangerines which makes you actually want to clean. Aromatic motivation!

*This has been incredible for my shower doors and for washing my dog! I don’t really need any other cleaner besides this. Though they also make one called TOUGH for stains and gooier or tougher jobs.

*This also works for laundry detergent!


 

PERSONAL CARE:

 LOTION: I am completely in love with the lotion from Healthy Home. It is super easy to find in your drawer because well, it’s named LOTION. Smooth, silky, fast absorbing – it works wonderfully on your entire body, face included.

 

BUY SPRAY: REPEL – Healthy Home – This spray on is non aerosol and smells nice. Bugs don’t seem to think so though. I put it on myself and my dog before going for a walk and we remain bite free!

 

SUNBLOCK: Yep, Healthy Home again. SPF 32 with no chemicals. Amazing! One of the biggest causes of skin cancer is not the sun, it is the chemicals used in commercial sunscreens. Highly recommend if you feel you must use a sunscreen.

DEODORANT: Ok this was the toughest of the tough for me to find. I have tried probably two dozen different kinds and most of them are just not effective and even in some cases caused me to sweat! FRESH from Healthy Homes is an alcohol base (so don’t shave your underarms right before putting it on – I found that out the hard way). Spray on, let it dry and you are good to go all day! Without the dangerous aluminum and other chemicals common in deodorants and antiperspirants. Though this isn’t an antiperspirant, I don’t seem to sweat while wearing it.

 

TOOTH PASTE:

Doterra’s ON GUARD tooth paste is amazing. It tastes like Celestial Seasoning’s Orange Zinger tea and truly helps freshen, clean and heal your mouth, gums and teeth. It contains essential oils and no fluoride.

SMILE – By Healthy Home is their new tooth paste which is also a fantastic choice.

 

MOUTHWASH:
Make your own – Pinch of pink salt, water, and 1 drop of essential oil (peppermint, on guard blend from doterra, wild orange, or other oil of your choice (make sure its one that can be taken internally). Swish, gargle and rinse!

 

SHAMPOO:
SHAMPOO (Named just that) From Healthy Home is fantastic. As is doTERRA’s Salon essentials. However, if you have color treated hair? These will suck the color out of them super fast. They are detoxifying shampoos and hair dye is toxic.
If your hair is color treated? – Best so far has been PomSmooth Shampoo by Juice Organics.

 

CONDITIONER:
PomSmooth Conditioner by Juice Organics Hair Care. Healthy and good!

 

FACIAL SCRUB:
Amber’s Earth Buffing Grains hands down beat most facials. It exfoliates and cleanses the skin leaving it smooth.

 

FACE WASH:
The Vermont Soap Company’s Honey Soap. Honey is a citrus clove blend with notes added from local honey. I use this right after the scrub.

 

PERFUMES:
Once you get used to using organic items I have to tell you, perfumes? Stink! I can’t even consider spraying myself with them anymore. As the fragrance industry is not regulated literally anything can be used, however toxic. I like to use oils. Essential oils by themselves though do not have much staying power, so it is best to mix them in an oil base. You can do it yourself or buy blends. My favorites so far come from Esoterica in New Orleans.  Money oil and Aquarius oil are what I personally choose, but of course choose your own!

 

MAKE UP:

Juice Beauty is where I have finally landed in buying make up. Commercial make up is terrible for your body. It can contain a whole array of chemicals where as this is organic. Their formulations are made without parabens, petroleum, propylene or butylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, pesticides, phthalates, artificial dyes or synthetic fragrances. Their products are never tested on animals. It combines juice extracts and minerals.

 

SHAVING CREAM:

I have started just using the Vermont Honey Soap to shave. It works just as well without all the chemicals in shaving cream.

CHAPSTICK:
Moldavite Essence Lip Balm – 
by Gaia’s Healing Gifts. This is the smoothest lip balm I have ever used. It is not waxy at all and keeps your lips from getting chapped.


 

There is no need to flood your body with chemicals in order to maintain the status quo appearance…. Thanks to companies like these – We no longer have to die to be beautiful.
