What is natural living and should we live that way? More than twenty two years ago that question came to my mind, specifically when negative health issues began to affect our bodies.
There are so many chemical laden products and foods out there, that it is sometimes overwhelming, trying to figure out what to do differently.
his book, “Food Sanity”1, Dr. David Friedman stated:
“In spite of all the differences of opinion, one thing every expert does seem to agree on is that the food we consume will either make us healthy or sick.
Hiding within our food supply are unnatural binders, fillers, preservatives, pesticides, hormones, artificial coloring and chemicals. So, if You Are What You Eat , then we are fake!”
Do you ever think you want to detox your life, but don't feel like you have the time, or knowledge to put into it? You can do it, natural living is not as difficult as it may seem.
Unfortunately, an overwhelming amount of the products we consume and use, on a daily basis, are not natural in the least.
Remember the definition we had previously about "natural" living? A majority of chemicals in many products, are definitely not natural, and should not be consumed or used on the human body.
Just one example: The toxic food dye Yellow 5, containing Tartrazine, is shipped, with a fire diamond warning placard, and in a hazardous container, to be used by almost every industry that produces food, health, cosmetic, hygiene, pet and misc. products.(1)(2)
Too many of our foods and personal hygiene products are chemical laden and contain modified and artificial ingredients. In other words much of it is fake and definitely not natural.
In addition, many of these ingredients are actually addictive and/or harmful to our minds and bodies.
There are products that are very natural and can be used for food, health / medicinal and various household uses. Some have been used successfully for hundreds of years.
Those are the ones I will focus on in this website. These are staples in our home, that we use on a regular basis. I try to never be without them since they are so useful, safe and healthy. Some are even edible as food, and tasty. Natural living is actually pretty enjoyable!
There are plenty of totally natural unadulterated products that every home could use and not have fear of toxins or harmful side affects. Hopefully, you will be encouraged by feeling better and safer, as you live more naturally.
Each one of these natural ingredients are safe, versatile and provided by nature and every home would benefit by keeping them on hand. Most of these are multi-purpose as well, good for your internal health, outer body (hair, skin, and nail health), as well as home/household use. You can't beat that for versatility and economic savings.
