Does anyone in your family suffer from allergies, chronic illness or fatigue? Have you ever stopped to consider that the toxins from the cleaning supplies are causing you and your family members to feel the way you do.

In this day and age, I have noticed a significant increase in allergies, asthma, chronic illness, autism, food allergies and many other health concerns that are causing serious problems in the realms of our homes, schools and workforce.

Did you ever ask yourself why? Why do so many people suffer from allergies, medical conditions, and various illnesses? Could it stem from the cleaning products and the chemicals we use inside and outside our home?

Thousands of products are produced every year. These products are used each year to sanitize and clean our homes and the environment in which we live, but have we ever analyzed what the effects of these chemicals will have on our body or the environment in the future? It’s not good, I can tell you that much. Just look around. You can see the damage just beginning.

By law, companies do not have to list all the chemicals in their products on the label of their product. Bet you did not know that!

Let’s get down to the nitty gritty

What I’m trying to say is that we absorb a significant number of chemicals into our bodies each day that our bodies are not equipped to handle and it is causing a our bodies and our bodies to break down and destruct. By using toxic chemicals, we are building our own time bomb and eventually we the people and the environment are going to destruct and destroy ourselves.

Look around you – global warming, rise of cancer, heart disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, and the increase in allergies. Kids are contracting these illnesses at a younger age. For example, my son has worse allergies than I do and he is only ten! This is why we need to go green.

The question is “how toxic are you?” How healthy is your home? Your home may sparkle because it is clean, but in the end, those chemicals might be damaging you and your family’s bodies more than you are aware.

The good news is you can change by going green. You can help improve your family’s health and prevent any future illnesses by using environmentally friendly products that will keep you, your family and the environment safe. Think about the next generation and the generation after that – what’s going to happen to them if we continue to absorb all these toxins, pour toxins in the water, destroy the trees that give us and our children oxygen. Are you getting what I am saying?

Let me show you how you can improve the life of your loved ones by going green. Here are a few tips to get you started on the green path. Let’s start now…

1. It’s time to clean out the closet. Throw out the toxins and let’s bring in the green: Do you know what is in the household cleaning products you are using? The fact is, most household cleaning products on market shelves today contain many harmful and hazardous toxins and chemicals. These hazardous toxic substances can enter the body through ingestion, inhalation or absorption through the skin, which can affect the heart, lungs, kidneys, liver and the brain and have the potential to cause many serious health problems. Natural cleaning products on the other hand are non-toxic and much safer to use because they are made from natural, wholesome, ingredients. When it comes to cleaning and disinfecting your home, they work just as effectively if not better than the chemical products that sell in thousands of stores.

2. Start purchasing products that are better for the environment
: Most retail brand household cleaning products are produced from harmful chemicals and these substances later become pollutants for our air and our landfills. Natural cleaning products on the other hand are made from natural ingredients, which are non-toxic as well as biodegradable and thus have a reduced impact on our environment. In addition, most natural cleaning products are frequently made from recycled packaging and materials.


3. Check your wallet you will notice that going green will not just help you health wise; it will cause you to have more green in your wallet. In this economy, every cent counts! Save your money: It should come as no surprise to you that the average costs for keeping up a family and a household are continuing to rise. However, you do not have to endanger the health of your families or your homes by using expensive, toxic chemical cleaning products. Natural cleaning products are not only safer to use, they also save you money because they last longer and cost less. In addition, to have a pretty scent in your home add 100% natural essential oils to your homemade recipes. Essential oils such as tea tree oil, lavender or lemon oil not only provide a fresh aroma and scent, but also have natural antiseptic, antifungal and disinfectant properties contained within them.

Remember my motto there’s only one pathway to a happy, healthy, and productive life it’s the green path!
