Start Reading Labels on Your Personal Care Products

The bad news is that many common products are full of chemicals you don't want absorbed into your skin, because the skin is the body's biggest respiratory organ.

The good news, from a UC Berkeley study, is that after only three days of using less harmful products, the chemicals in the body dropped significantly. 

"A new study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, demonstrates how even a short break from certain kinds of makeup, shampoos and lotions can lead to a significant drop in levels of hormone-disrupting chemicals in the body.
Researchers provided teen study participants with personal care products labeled free of chemicals such as phthalates, parabens, triclosan and oxybenzone
Such chemicals are widely used in personal care products, including cosmetics, fragrance, hair products, soaps and sunscreens, and have been shown in animal studies to interfere with the body’s endocrine system.
Analysis of urine samples before and after a three-day trial in which the participants used the lower- chemical products found significant drops in levels of these chemicals in the body. 
Metabolites of diethyl phthalate, commonly used in fragrances, decreased 27 percent by the end of the trial period. 
Methyl and propyl parabens, used as preservatives in cosmetics, dropped 44 and 45 percent respectively. 
Both triclosan, found in antibacterial soaps and some brands of toothpaste, and benzophenone-3 (BP-3), found in some sunscreens under the name oxybenzone, fell 36 percent." Read the full article at: http://news.berkeley.edu/2016/03/07/cosmetics-chemicals/?utm_source=100%25+Pure+US&utm_campaign=7132cced39-2017-01-06+Trunk+Sale+Final+-+US&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_52f12ed1e0-7132cced39-296581181&mc_cid=7132cced39&mc_eid=d6fd154b2d
Because I am a sensitive person, I was ahead of my time on this one. I have been replacing my personal care and home cleaning products with less toxic versions for decades. Watch this blog for upcoming articles on chemicals to avoid, my search for alternatives, pitfalls to avoid, and my favorites.

2016 Food Revolution Summit Found Me Eating Better

Where Did the Time Go?

I am surprised to see that it has been since 2014 that I blogged. Though I understand as I remember that my life got blurry when my Mom went on Hospice care at the end of 2014. My Mom, and two close friends passed in 2015. I have processed much grief since then. My focus is now back on the present.

The 2016 Food Revolution Summit Inspired Me

It gave me a chance to see how far I have come in eating a healthy selection of real food. I now eat a wide variety of colorful vegetables, that sometimes look as pretty as a picture. 

Since the 2014 Summit, I have purchased almost all of my produce at Farmer's Markets. I am delighted with the quality and the freshness. I can feel the difference in the energy of the fresh carrots at the Farmer's Market and the bagged little carrots at the grocery store.

When I get busy, and the fresh veggies sit in the refrigerator for a week or two, I can see that they are beginning to look like the quality of the veggies at the grocery store. So I guess it must take a week or two for the supply chain to get the produce to the store. When the Farmers bring it to Market, it was picked just yesterday. I love that just picked freshness.

So a friend and I have planted an organic garden. I will be posting photos and blogging about the joy of growing our own food. Stay tuned...

How I Learned to Be More Grounded Using Astrology & Crystals, And How You Can Feel More Balanced, Too.

My Big Aha!

In midlife, I became aware that I had experienced my whole life from either outside my body, or only in my head. Fortunately, at the same time, I learned that living life in my whole body was an option. In fact, it was a much richer and more fulfilling option.

So I began exploring how I might attain this unfamiliar state of occupying my entire body. One of the first techniques that worked was using outstretched arms to gather up all my energy that was dispersed around me, and then using my hands to push it down into my body.

2014 Food Revolution Summit Impact: The Changes Begin

Thanks to the Food Revolution Summit, I am looking at what I eat with new eyes. I realized that my food choices and eating patterns had become a habit. So I decided to take a conscious look and then decide if my eating habits still fit. 

This is what I saw. I could only find four "processed" foods, regularly in my diet. By that, I mean products that are packaged, and more than just a single ingredient. Here they are, and my conscious decisions about them.

Food Revolution Summit Take-Aways

Take-Aways Are What Stick With Me

As I was eating dinner tonight, I remembered something from the Food Revolution Summit that struck me as profound. When we eat unprocessed, organic food, we get much more nutritional value out of it, so we can be nourished, and feel satisfied, while eating much less. 

That is certainly something to remember when price comparing regular and organic food. If I need less organic, than regular food, the price difference is less.
