Changing the Way We Approach Health Care

Changing the Way We Approach Health Care is moving from reaction mode to prevention. Use products that support your body and contribute to staying healthy.

As we get older we tend to move from treating illness to preventing them.  Our health becomes more of a priority and we do things to maintain and support our healthy body. I think part of the reason we begin to make it a priority is because it seems to take longer to get well when we do get sick.  So we try to prevent the illnesses to begin with.

In the last few years, the Hardworking Husband and I have been moving toward a lifestyle that strengthens our bodies so that we stay healthy.  We aren’t always perfect at this and we do get sick from time to time, however. But we are working toward maintain and supporting our healthy body.

You may be wondering how we do this.  We are removing toxins from our home. No more candles, no more toxic cleaning products, very few preservatives in our foods, growing our own produce, making a major of our foods from scratch, and using essential oils to support our healthy bodies.

How do you clean your house? you ask.

We have switched to several different things that are non-toxic. We first began using Young Living cleaning products.  Young Living has an all purpose cleaner that is made with Thieves essential oil blend. This blend was inspired by a 15th century legend of French thieves who blended together a special aromatic combination that includes clove, rosemary and other botanicals to use while robbing dead and dying people.  This household cleaner is a powerful cleaner.

I have recently been introduced to Norwex. Norwex is most known for it’s microfiber. I have been surprised again and again by how well it works. For most cleaning with the microfiber cloths all you need is water. WATER! I wondered how water and microfiber could clean germs off my counters. The way it’s made allows it to pick up crumbs and germs and you aren’t just smearing it all over the counter. It also has silver woven in.  The silver prevents the bacteria from replicating and functioning.  Norwex also has cleaning products that are toxin free. I have loved their descaler. We live in a hard water area so I always need a descaler.

Here is a video about how Norwex cloths work.

Young Living and Norwex make cleaning your house with nontoxic products much easier.

If you would like more information about Norwex, please email me or if you’d like to order any products, here is link to our order form.

We have been using Young Living Oils to support our healthy bodies to remain healthy. I mentioned Thieves above. Thieves is the perfect oil blend for supporting our immune systems. A quick google search will explain better than I can explain why the Thieves essential oil blend works.

We also drink a juice called NingXia Red. This juice is made from wolfberries. These berries are grown in the NingXia region of China. NingXia Red also has plum, aronia, cherry, blueberry, and pomegranate juices and extracts. Along with the antioxidant power of these juices it also contains pure vanilla extract and Lemon, Orange, Yuzu, and Tangerine essential oils. It’s benefits include support for energy levels, normal cellular function, and whole-body and normal eye health. A daily shot of 2–4 ounces helps support overall wellness with powerful antioxidants.

We have also been supporting our bodies with a variety of essential oils rather than using medication. Occasionally, medication is what we need and we do take it. But if we can prevent needing it, we do that.

I would love to share with you how we specifically do this. Email me or visit my essential oil page for more information.

Love this! I recently removed sugar from my diet to move towards a healthier lifestyle myself (catch the Fed Up documentary on Netflix). Americans are so sick because we're all being pumped full of sugar and chemicals! We wonder why cancer rates and type 2 diabetes is so prevalent. Well...that would be why. Great, informative post!

Good job on removing sugar from your diet. I am working towards that. It's a process for me.
