Have you heard of something referred to as "toxic load?" In case you haven't or just to clarify what I mean by it; toxic load is the numerous substances that accumulate within our bodies and over time can cause our body harm. This can be from things we eat or drink, it can be from personal care or cleaning products, but the most scary are the ones we can't avoid, like the quality of air we breathe. Or what about the substances, chemicals and toxins that we're totally unaware that they even exist!?
There are lots of things we can do to help ourselves. Eating the "right" foods, exercising regularly, getting quality sleep and naturally managing our stress just to name a few. Sadly this isn't enough. When we're exposed to toxins on the daily and they build up in our system and that's where you start seeing issues. Frequent headaches, joint pain, inflammation, and even severe autoimmune issues, to name a few.
So what can you do? Two things come to mind.
1) Control what you can. Obviously we can't control things outside of our home, and I'm not suggesting you become a recluse, although that might be helpful. Tee-hee! You have control over the products you bring into and use in your home. This is personal care products, supplements, air freshener solutions, cleaning products, you name it. Start looking at your labels and ditch anything with the word 'fragrance' as an easy place to start. doTERRA offers a wide variety of everything I mentioned as an easy place to shop to have these clean, toxin-free products delivered conveniently to your door.
2) Do a cleanse to kick-start your efforts in number 1. The solution I want to share with you is called Cleanse & Restore. Although you can buy each item individually, I'm sharing the doTERRA Cleanse & Restore Kit with you so it will be easier to talk about and because it was created to be a simple and easy to follow program. Incorporate what you have on hand or what feels right for you or get the kit and plan to do the full 30-day cleanse. Game on!
Cleanse & Restore Kit includes:
doTERRA Lifelong Vitality Pack®
DDR Prime® Softgels
Lemon essential oil
Now, I'm not going to do a deep dive into these, but I do want to give you an idea of what all these products do and why they're part of the Cleanse & Restore Kit. We'll start with the doTERRA Lifelong Vitality Pack® because it's one of doTERRA's most popular products, it's full of essential nutrients, metabolism benefits, and powerful antioxidants designed to help promote energy, health, and lifelong vitality.
