Our Lifestyle today presents many health challenges. To remain healthy, vibrant and full of energy, simply put you need a plan. Cars have service plans, and we know we need to service our cars regularly to ensure they continue to function well. We also know that when we neglect to service our car, you end up with big repair bills and a car that is not working.
This is so similar to our health; people who have not paid too much attention to their health have ended up with huge medical bills and many health problems.
Our Lifestyle, Environment & Diet are major factors contributing to so many of the illnesses we face such as; Fatigue, Diabetes, Arthritis, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Obesity and Weight Gain.
We live in an invisible world of chemicals. There is an additional factor to consider also and that is toxicity. More than ever we are exposed to vast numbers of chemicals, in the air we breathe, the food we eat and the environment in which we live. We are not really aware of any of this, until we become ill. After all, these chemicals are totally invisible; you cannot see them, taste them or even smell them most of the time.
Modern life has resulted in convenience foods. Food is processed and prepared so that we can just open a packet, bottle or container and eat.
This is just so easy and useful when you live a busy life, where you are constantly on the go. But there is a price to pay. The reason food can last a specific time in its container and packaging is because chemicals and preservatives are used to ensure that the food has a shelf life. These chemicals are used to preserve the food and also to prevent the growth of harmful organisms in the food.
So many people who suffer from toxic chemical and heavy metal overload. These substances often have accumulated in the body, over many years, contributing to a variety of health problems.
Reports have been published by organisations such as the World Health Organisation* and the Environmental Protection Agency**.
** World Health Organisation Report on Exposure to Toxic Chemicals (2012)
The World Health Organisation States in its 2012 report on Exposure to Toxic Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals that:
''Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals have the capacity to interfere with tissue and organ development and function, and therefore they may alter susceptibility to different types of diseases throughout life. This is a global threat that needs to be resolved.''
