A toxic substance is any compound that has an unhealthy effect on cellular structure or function. We encounter toxic chemicals on a daily basis, often without even knowing it. Exposure may come from the food we eat, the water we drink, the clothes we wear, or how we clean our homes and care for our yards. Toxins are everywhere. Even our own bodies produce toxic substances that need disposal. It is important to become aware of common toxins in your environment, take steps to limit exposure, and to increase your body’s natural defenses.
5 Easy Ways to Reduce Your Toxic Load
|1. Buy and use a high-quality air purifier and water filter for your home and work.
2. Cut down on all plastic use – Avoid non-stick cookware, microwaving using plastic wrap or in plastic containers, and switch to drinking only out of glass bottles.
3. Eat fresh, non-processed, whole, and organic foods whenever possible.
4. Use only safe, non-toxic household cleaners and yard care products.
5. Choose natural and non-toxic personal products, such as chemical-free shampoo and conditioner, cosmetics, and deodorants.
Examples of common toxins include mercury from silver fillings, chemicals used to make non-stick cookware, and pesticides used on fruits and vegetables. These toxic substances can contribute to various health problems by taking up residence in fat cells, bones, cell membranes, and organs.
Of course, some toxic substances are more dangerous than others. The length of toxin exposure, number of exposures, and the specific mixture of harmful substances that have accumulated, all determine the level of toxic burden placed on the body (also referred to as Total Toxic Load). Individual factors such as genetics, age, and overall health also play important roles in how your body is able to rid itself of harmful substances. The more exposure, the more difficult it becomes for your body to process and remove toxins.
Toxins can permanently damage the immune system, nervous system, and can interfere with important hormone communication. Symptoms of toxicity can range from mild (psoriasis, fatigue, anxiety, depression, an inability to concentrate), to severe (auto-immune disorders, convulsions, psychiatric symptoms, cancer, and even death). Some adult diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and other mental disorders can be traced back to early childhood toxin exposure.
The liver is the body’s primary organ for detoxification. It takes toxic chemicals and breaks them down into less harmful substances that are then excreted from the body. The intestines, kidneys, lymphatic system, skin, and lungs are all key players in healthy elimination of toxins (even simple toxins like carbon dioxide). In particular, bowel movements on a daily basis are an important part of ridding the body of toxins, and part of why constipation makes you feel unwell.
Reducing your exposure to harmful substances and improving your body’s detoxification processes are both required to maintain good health. Using water filters on your drinking and showering water and using air purifiers in your home and work environment are simple yet effective ways to reduce toxin exposure. In addition, incorporating good nutrition, natural fabrics, sauna use, occasional fasting, and taking on healthy lifestyle practices are great ways to assist your body’s detoxification processes.
PRO Eye Floaters
I use it as an anti-inflammatory. It was recommended by a family member. I buy all my supplements from Village Green; and have done so for many years.
I have been taking this for about 6 weeks and have less pain in the joint/ muscles, have more energy and overall feel better. I would say it works.
Great product. Have used it for many years and I highly recommend it.
Village Green has excellent service as usual! 😊
I've been visiting Village Green Apothecary and its predecessor for at least 45 years: I trust them and they bend over backwards to guide you, find what you need, and solve problems. The staff are uniformly cheerful, and knowledgeable. It is a pleasant place to shop. This pharmacy is lightyears ahead of conventional drugstore pharmacies.
Used this for years for fibromyalgia and long covid muscle pain. Works wonders.
Have used cranberry concentrate for decades. Very satisfied with this product. Evelyne Laurin
Excellent service & delivery was quick too.
Helps with my reflux & leaky Gut
I discovered Sleepy Chocolate a couple of years ago. When I travel, or have an excess of stress, it’s sometimes difficult to sleep at night. I found that one, or two sections of a bar, is enough for a more restful sleep. Even if I wake a little later, I’m able to drift back to sleep. Keep in mind however, that it’s up to you to know when to stop drinking caffeine, alcohol or indulge in sweets and/or pre-bedtime meals. Sleepy Chocolate is a wonderful gift but it won’t cover for our choices.
Peppermint Oil 250mg
Very pleased with the purchase, was shipped with an ice pack at no additional cost which was nice. Pollen is potent and as high quality as I've had. Good texture and taste, leaves a sweet aftertaste. Will buy again :)
