Things We Use That Harm Us

Once upon a time, there was a face soap for women called Dr. Campbell’s Safe Arsenic Soap. It was touted for giving a lovely complexion. Of course, when the women fell dead after using it for a time, death did tend to erase all previous facial problems. We would be quick to say, ‘how horrifying;’ however, we use others that are just as deadly.

Let us look at some harmful products, by category, for which we need to find substitutes:

Men, Women, and Children

Face and body washes; shampoos and conditioners – avoid sodium lauryl sulfate which causes these products to foam or form suds. Avoid parabens, also. Look for shampoos, toothpastes and other personal care products marked “SLS free.”

Use shampoos made with essential oils. You can also wash your hair with baking soda.

Toothpaste – avoid fluoride. Use fluoride-free toothpaste or brush with baking soda and diluted food-grade hydrogen peroxide (not the ones in the pharmacy and supermarket).

About LawsOnHealth Wellness

My organs were shutting down, the specialist said. I didn’t hear much of anything after that. The words ‘shutting down’ meant imminent death, in my mind, fraught with horrible pain. I envisioned myself unable to control my faculties and being left in a hospice to moan my last few days. It did not help that the doctors did not know what was wrong with me. On top of all the drugs they prescribed which made me more ill, they did an EMG (such long needles!) MRI's, an endoscopy, and CT scans. Major surgery came next but was later determined to have been unnecessary, after all. That day, hearing those words from the specialist brought me to the river's edge; I would take no more drugs! Instead, I would take my health in hand. Now, I am well, and a trained naturopathic physician, holistic health coach, and colon hydro-therapist. All around us, there is a renewed surge in alternative health and I am excited to help clients reach their goals. Are you at the edge of the river?
