I am a certified health nut. Not in the lock me up and throw away the key sense.
I have certifications for personal training, sports science and nutrition. So, I’m always looking at ways to improve the health of my family. Not just with their fitness and nutrition.
When I found out that everyday household items such as cleaning products and personal care products contain chemicals, some of them toxic to humans, I was shocked!
Could my daughter’s skin issues and my son’s concentration issues have been caused by what I was using in the home when they were little?
I felt gypped, lied to, swindled.
I knew there had to be a better way. But I was not up for cleaning my house with vinegar and baking soda. Surely science had come further than the 1800s by now! I needed a solution that is easy to use, smells great and does the job.
It was the same with things like sunscreen, air fresheners, moisturisers - I needed to find something that did not cause my family issues, and was safe and effective.
Since ditching the toxin laden chemical products from the supermarket and switching to natural, safe alternatives, my life has changed.
I now feel secure in the knowledge that my health is not being compromised by the products I clean my house with or put on my skin.
