How many chemicals are you wearing?
The point of this article is to awaken the average consumer to the toxic nature of some of the most common household products we consume and use on a daily basis.
We do not want to scare anyone, we want to inform and educate so that you can make the most informed choices for your health and the health of your loved ones.
This is not a scientific article, but has scientific information to assist you in understanding, and in making better choices.
We are dedicated to finding products that are free from toxic chemicals, dyes, and "fake natural" ingredients, disguised to trick you into thinking it's good for you.
Our bodies have an amazing ability to detox environmental and internal stress through the liver and other organs. But we can overload our systems through a variety of factors. Stress being the most toxic - as our own chemistry becomes toxic through worry, fear, anger, anxiety etc. Our chemistry is meant for happiness and love and we are meant to be peaceful - but when things come into our lives to interrupt this balance, we overload on our own good chemistry. It flows in a toxic quantity.
Adding to the toxicity are chemicals found in common household items that cause Neurotoxicity, Organ Toxicity, Cancer, Hormone Disruption, Allergies/Immunotoxicity and Developmental/Reproduction problems and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.
The body of evidence supporting these claims is so tremendous that it can no longer be ignored. This small article is only here to trigger awareness and to bring to your attention that along with emotional stress, which contributes to physical illness, there are multiple avenues which cause further weakening and deterioration of the body because of the toxic nature of consumer products, environmental and industrial waste. We can't avoid everything, but we can become more aware of what we consume and what is in our products.
Eco Pink Sapphire wants to help the average person, who does not want to spend hours researching the problem, to find solutions and products that will help eliminate the negative toxic impact of the chemical load we are faced with on a daily basis.
