Genetics. The new fall guy is 'bad genes'. Yet, research shows that gene expression is a reaction to our environment.
Thankfully, we live in a world of cause and effect. Every symptom has a cause.
And as tempting as it is to look to outside causes, many health problems are the result of our own choices, beliefs and habits. Sometimes the effects can take decades to appear.
Ill health is not an accident, but the result of your body's inability to accommodate physical, chemical or emotional stress. Similarly, good health results when your body works the way it was designed to.
We often talk about the three types of stress, physical, emotional and chemical. The chemical stress on our bodies can be tremendous.
You probably have a favorite laundry detergent. If they supplied a list of ingredients it would require a chemical engineering degree to decipher. It gets worse.
After your 'whites are whiter than white' many people add more chemicals to their clothing by using a fabric softener. All these chemicals attach themselves to your favourite shirt and lucky socks.
Better living through chemistry? We're not convinced. We think better living comes from less chemistry. Give some thought to the potential carcinogens, allergens and chemical stressors in your life. See what you can do to reduce them - improving your health in the process.
