The secret to ditching the toxic load in your life

I want to talk about different ways to reduce the toxic load on your body and how doing so can improve the health and happiness of your family. We keep hearing about how our teenagers are starting puberty earlier than ever before, parents are waiting longer start their family only to find out they will need assistance to make their dreams a reality, and women starting menopause earlier than ever before. These are all examples of our endocrine (or hormone) system being affected and sent out of whack. 

The amount of fake chemicals that are synthesised in a lab to improve the smell or shelf-length of a product while keeping the price low has dramatically increased over the last couple of decades. Let’s face it - this is being driven by consumer demand - otherwise they wouldn’t invest millions into designing and producing these products. We are only now beginning to realise the effect that these synthetic chemicals have on our bodies, maybe not immediately, but in the future. 

Your choice of ingredients is important

No one- tells you that your choice of products now could effect you in the future. However, if you consult a fertility specialist to get some help to have children, often the first thing they will recommend you do (once they’ve been through all the interventions they can help you with) is to buy organic fruit and veggies whenever you can, ditch the toxic perfumes and stay away from the household cleaning products. Now, scientists are only just beginning to see the links between these two things but when the professionals give you that recommendation, you suddenly realise you’ve been doing it all wrong for years. But I am here to tell you that the best time for you to realise that and make some changes, is today.  

Women are at more risk than men

No-one tells you that women experience more of these endocrine issues such as infertility and early menopause and even migraines because our bodies have been surounded by these toxic products for years. Women are marketed to from a very early age (think toddlers and very early tweens) that they need to wear make-up, perfume and keep their skin looking young by using certain creams. Women are also more likely to be the ones using cleaning products (both at work and at home) so are exposed to more of these compounds there.

Stop making these mistakes today!

So the first mistake you might be making is just reading the front of products that you’re buying at the supermarket and believing the claims of “natural”, “lite”, “good for you” etc. Manufacturers can’t pretty much put anything they want on the front of their packets and they’re very clever with the words they choose to use - like “lite” instead of “light” so it sounds like it’s healthier but it really isn’t. Another common one today is “no added sugar” but they’ve added plenty of another variety of glucose or used an additive that can cause a multitude of problems of their own. Also read the ingredients list - my cheat sheet will tell you want to look out for. They can’t lie in the ingredients list or the nutritional information panel. The rest of the packet is up to them to play with - so be smart and turn the packet over before you buy. 

The second mistake is believing the advertising and marketing about what you “need” to feel good or be healthy. Some of the companies that put their products in front of us spend more money on their marketing budget than they do on designing and producing the actual product. Don’t fall for the FOMO trick of being made to feel that you’ll be missing out while everyone else is smelling better and looking younger than you. Be smarter and don’t believe the hype.

The secret to ditching your toxic load

The first thing to do to ditch the toxic chemicals once and for all is to do it slowly. The pace will differ from person to person but if you try and do it too quickly, or find it too hard, you’ll decide it’s not worth it.

For most of us that are already trying to balance between being a mum, working and some time for ourselves adding something else in like making all our own beauty and cleaning products sounds overwhelming and way too difficult. But if you start with just one product it’s much easier.

I suggest that you make a list of all the things for your house that you’d like to eventually be making yourself. Put the list in your phone on a note or keep it on paper on the fridge if you like. Make a conscious decision not to buy any more of these products from the supermarket again. Make a list of the ingredients that you’ll need to make all these products a few times over and keep them in the laundry cupboard or somewhere handy.

Once one of the products on your list is about the run out, get those ingredients out and make it. This way, you won’t be tempted to grab one at the shops just because you haven’t made it yet. So essentially the secret is to swap out one thing at a time to build your confidence for the next thing.

So where should you start?

The pace at which you make these changes is different for every family. It depends on how much time you have to learn this new skill. But as I said it’s not really the time to make the products themselves, it’s the preparation.

It’s the list of products that you want to swap for ones you make yourself. It’s the list of ingredients. It’s finding the recipes for those first products before you really become comfortable making them.

I have made all of this really easy for you with my Ditch the Toxic Load Cheat Sheet. It has a list of toxic ingredients to avoid when you’re buying store-bought products or reviewing the ones you already have. It then has a list of common household products that can easily be made yourself and the required raw ingredients and the optional essential oils. All the recipes can be found on the Resources page on the website. 

The first step is simply deciding that you’re ready for a change and you want to reduce the amount of toxic chemicals being applied to and absorbed into your body. The rest of the process is much easier and I can help you with all of that.

When you are ready for the rest of your life to be easier and more enjoyable, the logical first step is a personal consultation (either in person or via zoom) where I can get to you the unique needs of your household and develop personalised strategies to transform your happiness for the better.
