In this blog, we are going to focus on toxins and autoimmune conditions. All things considered, there are some toxins that we can eliminate. However, the removal of some toxins requires more significant resources and funds.
Several environmental determinants can be the cause of an autoimmune condition.
A percentage may account for genetics. A higher per cent can come from stress, hormones, infections, diet, toxins and many more.
What changes can you make?
Here are just a few.
- Eat organic
- Drink clean filtered water (Not from a plastic bottle)
- Remove toxic cleaning chemicals, scented laundry detergents, fabric softeners, air fresheners and more
- Eliminate toxic toiletries
- Remove all cosmetics with toxic chemicals
But, you might say, this is expensive?
Consider what you think would be your priorities in eliminating toxins.
I had already started making changes to my toiletries, and household cleaning products a few years prior, before knowing that I had an autoimmune condition.
Currently, I make my soap, body wash, body scrub, handwash, multi-purpose, glass and mirror clean and disinfectant. You might choose to buy rather than make your own.
