Reducing Harmful Chemicals In Your Home: A How-to Guide

toxic

Toxins seem to be everywhere in our society. The sheer number of mass-produced plastics, chemical pesticides used on fruits and vegetables, and processed materials means a lot of harmful substances can make it into your home if you aren’t careful. Some of the big ones include bisphenol A (better known as BPA), phthalates, and agricultural chemicals, all of which are also included in a family of chemicals known as endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). These materials can interfere with hormone systems, causing developmental disorders, birth defects, and even cancerous tumors.

 

The most famous EDC is BPA. An integral component for polycarbonate plastics, BPA can be found in just about any plastic products: bottles, food containers, cutlery, and sometimes, even toys. High BPA exposure can mean increased risks of cancer, endocrine system disruption, and has even been linked to heart arrhythmia and reductions in sexual function. Pregnant women are even more at risk, with research suggesting that BPA could affect the development of the brain, organs, and behavior in the fetus. Continue reading…


What Reiki Can Do For You

Reiki Energy

What is Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese method used to deal with stress and promote relaxation. Everyone has an energy, sometimes called an aura or chakra, which flows through them and allows body and mind to work together. 

Reiki is a healing process for your chakra. It brings the body and its energies into balance, which results in better overall wellness. If your chakra is out of sync, your spiritual energy is low. Low energy is blamed for stress, illness, and fatigue, while high energy is linked to happiness and well-being. Negative thoughts and feelings can cause a decrease in this energy. Reiki relies on using your hands to interrupt negative flow and to increase spiritual energy levels. Continue reading…

In this age, so full of fear, anger and hate, it’s hard to see the positives in the current situations at hand; but it’s because of this lack of positive thought that things have gone downhill. “What you think about you bring about.” With so many people concentrating on what they dislike, what scares them, and other general negative emotions, we’re literally bringing about our own misfortunes. We can counteract this, of course, and the way to do it is so simple, it’s mind boggling.

In order to even think about that first step, you need to begin to think positively. Let’s explore what we can do to think more positively, together, and make those changes hand-in-hand.
