As a prepper, we need to think of ourselves as a well oiled machine. We would not leave our guns, tools, and food supply in an environment that would ruin them…. so why do we neglect our bodies and purposefully expose ourselves to toxic agents?… especially knowing that we need to be in prime health to survive and thrive.
Chances are that your house is sick, and that means that you are affected too. Household cleaning products are responsible for over 10% of all toxin exposure calls to the Poison Control Centers in the United States. But what about the more insidious silent illnesses caused by seemingly harmless household chemical exposure?
Of the over 2000 chemicals on the market, more than 1/2 of them are known to ACTIVELY cause or promote allergies, asthma, cancer, birth defects, nervous system disruptions, and/or endocrine disruption.
In our preparations for what is to come, we will need to be healthy! …. scratch that…. we need to be healthy no matter what!
Think about the products YOU use around your home, your children, and your pets.
What’s in them? If you are curious, check out the Environmental Working Group website to find out.
Personally, I don’t like to wonder…so I found out, and then I made some serious changes many years ago in our house and on our farm.
This is one of the reasons I love essential oils.
They’re safe. They’re natural. They’re non-toxic…. And they can kick some serious booty when it comes to cleaning. Their presence in your home “creates an inhospitable environment” for bacteria to grow.
You’ll see what I mean here.
So, get your house in order! We are told to do that, right?….Both Biblically and in preparedness. Our “house” isn’t just our home… it is also a reference to our body. Let’s clean house!
