ARE YOU BEING POISONED BY YOUR DAILY ROUTINE?
A typical morning for many people might include: Wake up to a digital alarm clock, wash hands with antibacterial
soap, wash face with a special cleanser, brush teeth with Crest or Colgate, take a shower with
scented gel, shampoo with a popular scented shampoo and matching conditioner, put on a moisturizer or
sunscreen, spray on perfume or cologne, apply make-up – foundation, blush, mascara, and lipstick. Before
even leaving the house for work, a person can be exposed to a multitude of harmful chemicals, dyes, and
colorings! These items can cause serious damage to the nervous system of one whose immune system is
struggling, and even in a healthier person can hinder the ability to achieve optimal health. But there are
great options for reducing and/or eliminating this potential threat to our health. Although we can’t control
general pollution out there, we can choose products that do not compromise our personal environments.

convenient to carry.
