1. Foods and pesticides & 2 Food Preservatives

Problem: Chemicals added to make food last longer, or look better for higher sales.
Solution: Buy bakery bread, and ask to be sure they aren't using additives. Buy organic fresh, frozen or canned foods.

3. Dairy

Problem: These days milk from cows can be laden with antibiotics and their food filled with chemicals and can still be sold for human consumption.
Solution: Buy milk from cows raised naturally, or switch to soya milk for some of your baking, and on cereals. This is easily done by introducing it slowly into your new way of eating.

4. Deodorant

Problem: Some brands contain aluminum, and your skin absorbs it!
Solution: Buy brands without it. Try use baking soda - if it works to absorb odors around the house, it will work for you too - and it's smooth.

5. Stress

Problem: Living in pain from emotions, abuse, crisis and over working.
Solution: Include a few stress relieving habits in your life. Start with a one to 2 hour weekly ritual. It could be a massage. If you don't have the time and little money Sue Augustine's book -Five Minute Retreats for Women- has many simple indulging ideas.

6. Cookware

Problem: Cooking with aluminum cookware means you are ingesting aluminum.
Solution: Use glass, cast iron, stoneware, earthenware, high grade steels for cooking.

7. Smoke or secondhand smoke

Problem: Can't quit, or surrounded by it.
Solution: This is a biggy. Find help to quit and avoid smoke filled areas. If possible get your workplace to participate in a healthier environment - most employers will want to. Make a rule at your house - NO smoking.

8. Processed foods

Problem: Stripped from processed foods, vitamins and nutrients are essential to keeping your resistance high to diseases.
Solution: Get back to basics, include foods in your diet that aren't processed as much as possible. Avoid prepared packaged meals and eat plenty of raw vegetables and fruit.

9. Air pollution

Problem: Poor air quality from polluted air, in and out of the house. Know what your furniture is made of or protected with. Some adhesives and protection solvents emit toxins over months in your house.
Solution: Use hepa filter air cleaners, avoid your own pollution contributions - gas powered tools. Take your bike or walk when ever possible

10. Artificial foods

Problem: Saccharin and food coloring are unnatural substances for your body.
Solution: Avoid foods with these ingredients. Find the real thing, that doesn't use substitutes, or cut it out of your diet.

11. Sun

Problem: Over-exposure or repetitive prolonged sun is extremely toxic to your skin.
Solution: Cover up with sun blocking cream, and find shade.

12. Home cleansers

Problem: Many cleansers include toxins you inhale during use. Have you ever felt sick after cleaning floors, bathrooms, your garage and/or any other household cleansing chores?
Solution: Use vinegar, lemon, or baking soda to clean and avoid chlorine.

Good health can be as simple as removing toxins from your daily routines. Your benefits will increase with the amount of effort you put into the change in your lifestyle.
