You don’t want to be too regimented about food and dieting, or anything else for that matter. I’m not advocating overdoing it to the point of making your eating habits a source of stress or fear, which will only make you feel worse, because you’re probably already trying to fit a lot into your busy life.
A lot of people have the tendency to go overboard when it comes to health and dieting. Some will frequently drive themselves into a state of stress and exhaustion in their pursuit of perfect health. It’s necessary to keep balance because overdoing it can undo all the hard work of getting healthy.
Take the steps necessary to guide yourself toward a balanced lifestyle, by making periodic juicing a way of life. Find short-term cleansing programs that work for you.
Even if you moved to a deserted island and only ate organic fruit and vegetables grown in your own garden, you still cannot be sure that you’re completely safe from pollution. Radiation from half way across the globe may be in the air you breathe; mercury from a far-off shore could be contaminating the fish you caught; acid rain might be making the water you’re drinking not too safe.
The reality is we live in an Earth that is polluted. The air we breathe on a daily basis is loaded with invisible pollutants, and our food supplies are often toxic due to pesticides and preservatives. We can rarely trust the water supply completely due to water-treatment chemicals. We are exposed to hundreds and thousands of toxins and chemicals inside our homes and workplaces, schools, highways, shops. We’re exposed to them whether we’re eating or sleeping.
Regardless of your age, occupation, financial situation, or area of residency, environmental pollution is everywhere and is near impossible to avoid. Some of the toxins we’re constantly exposed to include industrial chemicals, insecticides, pesticides, metals, organic fuel emissions, electromagnetic pollution, radiation, preservatives, additives, food dyes, and more. Our bodies are bombarded with free radicals, reactive molecules that can damage our cells. Using pharmaceutical and over-the-counter drugs causes side effects that interact with other drugs and substances to further toxicity. Inevitably, thousands of chemicals inundating average people like you and me take a toll on our bodies.
This assault continues day after day, year after year, gradually weakening our organs and slowly decaying the effectiveness of our immune systems, our natural defenses.
Toxic chemicals can impact all aspects of our systems, in some way- cells, organs, tissues all become overloaded with waste. Thankfully, we are equipped with organs whose purpose is to eliminate and detoxify to clear away the buildup of pollutants. When our organs become overloaded with too much work, we become more and more fatigued, mentally fogged, and susceptible to sickness.
In these articles I’ll be showing you what you can do to assist your body in managing the onslaught from the environment, and how to build good health habits that will continue to protect and strengthen you.
There’s great incentive to become stronger and healthier; a strong, healthy body can resist toxic overload and disease.
