Opening minds and hearts to Hope and Inspiring Change to Lead a Creative Life!
a continuance on my breast cancer natural healing mission......
Ok. Now I had no way to clean my house. I went to Whole Foods and went down the small cleaning supply aisle and started to read the ingredients in each item. I noticed that Whole Foods put up what I call a "GREEN" -o-meter. It told you how GREEN the item was as far as environmental friendly. SO, I figured between picking the GREENest and the items with the MOST ingredients I could pronounce I settled for those items that day! I got home to restock my items and then started thinking about my diet. I knew what I needed to eliminate already. It took me the next 10 weeks to ween myself completely off alcohol, coffee, my boyfriends chips & crackers, and to decrease my sugar consumption. It was hard. They ALL were hard to stop doing. BUT, I think when your mind starts to shift, it becomes easier. I had other detoxing in my life to do and I knew it all was combined together and would eventually work itself out.
I continued my readings and research every day. I was looking for answers and I found them. The MORE something was REPEATED, I knew I should be doing it. I had not even scratched the surface. I merely threw out some trash and had weeks and months of work ahead of me. Researching became my new full-time job along with my other jobs. I couldn't stop. My first 2 BIG purchases were an AIR Purifier and WATER Filter. I dropped my first $700. Worth it! I use them ALL DAY EVERY DAY!
I bought the $200 Berkey Water Filter - they have lots of sizes and it is portable.
I will eventually upgrade to one of these... LIFE IONIZER or KANGEN - 2 BIG points about WHY I would want to purchase these:
1) I can use it via my sink so cleaning veggies and the house and drinking water is simplified and I am not depending on 4.5 gallons of water that need to be refilled.
2) These machines ALKALIZE your water. Read through the sites to understand. In a nutshell, we are ACIDIC because of all the things we consume daily. We need to balance our PH levels daily and this helps!
WATCH THIS VIDEO AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHY I STARTED WITH WATER.
I received my AIR purifier on WEEK 6 via USPS. Thanks Mail carrier I KNOW it was SUPER HEAVY! I keep it in my bedroom since that is where I sleep 8-9hours right now each night. I had smaller ones before BUT this one ROCKS! Basically, the more you spend, the more it will do for you. I have 2 cats and have been getting allergies more and more the past 10 years so it is totally worth a peaceful and clean feeling nights sleep. I bought it because I feel like it is helping to maintain the CLEAN and non-toxic environment in my home that I am trying to now create. I bought this brand, AUSTIN, and REALLY like it! http://austinair.com/ It was not on the list of things you HAD to have for ALTERNATIVE healing it just seemed like a good idea and my sister was told to purchase one after her double mastectomy so her surgical healing process at home went smooth. So glad I did it. I don't think I have even turned it OFF since it arrived. (with the exception of rolling it into another room) Weeks later I also researched air purifying plants and purchased a bunch! Not only are they pretty and make the house FEEL more natural and fresh, they are spreading GOODNESS! I started with a Peace Lily, Spider Plant, and Dracaena. Also, as a side note, I would like you to know that I bought roses and lillies from Jewel for Christmas Eve and used my FILTERED water in the vases. I have NEVER seen flowers bloom so FULL and stay for so long! Just sayin, it might be the water. :) ALSO, we had my sisters' kids over for Christmas Eve and one of them has SEVERE allergies. I cleaned well and used my AIR purifier in the upstairs the 3 days prior to them coming and not even a sneeze or sniffle or red eyes! aha! PROOF!
As always, thanks for reading and listening.
