a continuance on my breast cancer natural healing mission......
Week 5 & 6
Where do I start? After listening to all the videos and audiobooks and reading articles on the internet, I knew I had to DETOX my life somehow , some way. I had no idea where to start BUT i knew I had a sh++load of items in the house that I should probably just throw away. I don't like to waste, I was always a "clear my plate" kinda gal when I would sit down and eat my meals. However, there was a seed that was planted in me and I NEEDED to throw away this stuff in order to FEEL better. I scowered the house and came up with 5 full bags of items that included (but not limited to) cleaning supplies, toiletries, candles and all smell goods, many PLASTIC items, cosmetics, perfume and body sprays, laundry and dish soap, non-stick cooking pans, and foods that contained sugar. Basically, if it was in "plastic", or contained "parabens" or "fragrance" or "sugar" it was in the trash bag. I am not even gonna give a list of the TOXIC ingredients that are NO-NO's because they are long and hard to pronounce and we are NOT gonna remember.
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!
