Great Health Doesn't Just Happen!
Did you know that your skin is the largest organ in your body? It protects you against disease, regulates your temperature, is sensitive to touch to help you avoid pain, is flexible, strong, and regenerates and repairs itself. However, your skin cannot protect you against everything it comes into contact with, like fire, poison oak, and toxic chemicals. The good thing is that, most of the time, we can protect ourselves against fire and poison oak because we can see them. Not so much with toxic chemicals. What do I mean?
Being the largest organ, your body absorbs everything you put on it. So you should not put anything toxic on your skin. In fact, to be safe, don’t put anything on your skin that you would not eat!!
Some of the toxic chemicals commonly found in skincare products are: artificial fragrances, artificial colors, formaldehyde, phenol, trichlorethane, BHT/BHA, EDTA, Glycols, Parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Nitrates, and Nitrosamines. These are toxic to your skin; therefore, they are toxic to your entire body. They are not natural ingredients.
Do you ever wonder why you always seem to break out at the most inopportune time? Our skin is heavily affected by everything around us, not just our physical environment, but by what we eat, drink, and even think!
Just drinking a lot of water, or slathering on face cream is not going to solve the problem. Typically your liver and kidneys filter waste out of your body, but if they are overloaded by toxins, then the waste goes into your bloodstream and your skin breaks out with rashes, pimples, zits, blisters, or spots. If you want beautiful skin, then you must have pure blood.
Eighty percent of all fragrances in perfumes, shampoos, soaps, lotions, shaving creams, and household cleaners are neurotoxic and carcinogenic. Tests show that the five main ingredients in sunscreens cause cancer. The more you use, the higher your chances of getting skin cancer. It is not the sun that causes cancer, it is the toxins in the sunscreens that bake into your body.
There is one sunscreen that I use that does not have these dangerous ingredients. In fact, Environmental Working Group (EWG.org) evaluated it as being #1 for being non-toxic, so it is one of the safest on the market. It is called Releve Organic Sun-lite Sunscreen by Emerald Essentials. It is completely food-based and natural. No dangerous chemicals or preservatives. And it is relatively inexpensive. Remember to always check your labels. If you can’t pronounce the ingredient, or don’t know what it is, you should put it down and look elsewhere.

Have you noticed that the cost of healthcare is through the roof! What if there was a way for you to know what was going on in your body without having to go to the doctor and get poked and prodded for a diagnosis. The answer is closer than you think! Just look in the mirror.
Everything is connected. Every part of your face is connected to another part of your body. The Chinese have known this for thousands of years. If their patients didn’t get better, they didn’t get paid! If that patient was the Emperor, then they got beheaded. How’s that for motivation!
Modern medicine only seeks to deal with symptoms and cut off body parts. They never address the true cause. Oriental medicine knows the cause is not just physical, but also emotional and environmental.
If you want a younger looking face and body, you need to clean up what is wrong inside you. No amount of plastic surgery, makeup, drugs etc. is going to fix what is broken. True health and beauty start on the inside.
Most of us are conditioned to believe that we were meant to break down like a machine. Do you know that there are cultures where people live past 100 years of age, never need eyeglasses, have lots of hair, lots of energy, and are happier than those of us living in the so-called “modern” civilization. What do they know that we don’t know?
Most of our issues are based on what we choose to focus on. These old-timers aren’t stressing over bills, mortgages and fancy cars. They are admiring the beauty of life around them. They live a simple life the way mother nature intended. They are not into immediate gratification like those of us in the “modern” world. They relax and enjoy life. They appreciate what they have, however small that may be. They truly live.
Everything happens for a reason. There are no accidents. If you want to know what is wrong on the inside, just look at your body. The road map is there. All you have to know is how to read the signs. Educate yourself. Then motivate yourself to take action.

The Standard American Diet (SAD) is becoming recognized more widely as an unhealthy way to eat. However, even though people recognize this, they are slow to change their eating habits. That is because people are conditioned to a way of life where they are constantly seeking pleasure while avoiding pain.
Because SAD food generally is easy to access and quickly creates perceived pleasure, people are attracted to it like a magnet. Just like bears that are attracted to honey and are willing to put up with multiple bee stings just to access a nest of bees and eat the honey, people are attracted to junk food and sweets and are willing to put up with chemical toxins, GMO’s, and pesticides just to satisfy their addictive cravings.
In other words, the perceived pleasure of eating SAD food hides the reality that the SAD food is slowly, but consistently creating pain in the form of disease, body deterioration, chronic depression, overall dissatisfaction with the quality of life, and early death.
In turn, the poor quality of life and other pain permeates the thinking of people and impedes their ability to live a full life and get along with other people. It is small wonder that the majority of the world’s peoples are conflicted and dissatisfied with the quality of their lives. Individuals are at war within themselves and among themselves.
As people become more aware of and understand the effects of SAD food on their lives, they will begin to change their eating habits. But it will be a slow, bumpy process, with many starts and stops. Understandably, it is difficult for people to change their eating habits when their minds are conditioned by the media to gaining immediate pleasure.
The media are paid by the food companies, via television commercials and magazine advertisements, to convince people that the food companies’ products will provide them pleasure. And the food companies are not just satisfied to use the media, they are involving governmental agencies in their scheme to control people’s thinking. For example, the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is bombarded by outside influence to relax controls over food, so that the food companies can sell more pleasurable, enticing foods, even if those foods are unhealthy and (in some cases) are known to sicken or kill people. The “murder” (slow death) is carried out over a period of time so that it is not so obvious as to raise immediate concern. Besides, people think that their government is looking out for their best interests and cannot fathom that it would let companies do such terrible things.
The main idea here is not to bash the food companies or the government, but to inform people of what is happening so that they may take the action to change their lives for the better. People need to take back control of their lives, reduce governmental interference, and build up trust among one another to become neighbors who look out for one another. People need to read about what is happening, not from the mainstream media, but from alternative sources, like http://www.naturalnews.com/, who is not influenced by corporate or government interests.Read More
