Are we really that toxic?

Are we really that toxic? | Hello Women's Wellness Network | Scoop.it

There is a reason why you are hearing more about our bodies being toxic and about detoxing on the whole. In today’s society, we are exposed to many toxins every day which are found in the food that we eat, in the air that we breathe and even in the water we drink. Each day the human body is exposed to hundreds of different toxic chemicals and hormone disruptors that slowly poison us because they also interfere with digestion and play havoc on our immune systems.

 

So what really are toxins?

Toxins are chemicals or substances that interfere with the optimal functioning of the body therefore acting as poisons.  Some sources of toxic substances are obvious like alcohol and cigarettes whereas others are hidden in our food and in different medicines we take. Did you know that even stress and tension produce a chemical reaction in our body that is highly toxic in nature?

 

There’s more! Toxins come in many forms and primarily from two sources…

From outside your body:  These are also known as environmental toxins and are absorbed into the body via your lungs, skin, mucous membranes and stomach.  We find toxins in the food we eat due to modern farming processes which encourage the use of herbicides, insecticides and pesticides. They also end up depleting the soil of essential nutrients. Secondly, the food industry in their attempt to extend food shelf life and enhance taste, also add hundreds of toxic substances like harmful preservatives to our food. Endless pollutions from gases, fumes and smoke are responsible for the creation of toxins in the air that we breathe. Different treatment processes used are responsible for the presence of toxins in the water that we drink.

 

From within your body: The other source of toxins actually comes from inside your body and is the result of internal biochemical processes, which include damaged cells, proteins and old hormones. An excess of these eventually build up in our muscles and joints, leading to inflammation and chronic pain.

 

Cell waste removal is a part of the natural metabolic process your body goes through. These toxins are removed from the cells, into the bloodstream, filtered primarily via the liver and kidneys and then excreted through the bowels, bladder, skin and lungs. Secondary elimination paths include tears, phlegm, mucus, earwax and nasal discharge.

 

The great news is that your body is designed by Mother Nature to detoxify 24 hours a day and that’s why a great deal of your body’s energy is spent on detoxification as it is a natural, essential process. However, with the ever increasing burden of environmental toxins from the food we eat and the air that we breathe, our systems struggle to keep up thus leading to health concerns when the incoming toxin level is much higher than what is being expelled.

 

At WWN, we believe that by looking at the body as a whole and by correcting or minimising any imbalances and also by including nutritional and lifestyle changes, the body’s natural balance can be restored. The first step is to allow the body to detox naturally by gently cleansing the system from within. Cleansing your system is a great way to lose weight safely and to prevent further diseases. Everyone can benefit from a cleansing program and if we enhance the natural process in our daily lives, many illnesses could be prevented and healed.

We also have an array of highly beneficial cleansing products that are guaranteed to give you results you will love! www.womenswellnessnetwork.com.au

What Motivates You to Success.

 

Motivation is like an enigma. There are so many different things that can motivate you to create change in your life.  What is the magic equation that will get you to where you desire to be?  Some of you may answer ego, others may say it is a desire to get from point A to point B, and, some of us may agree that at times the greatest motivating factor is purely survival based.

 

How do we find what is the best motivator for us? Is it money; accolades;  validation; others, competitiveness;  or is it purely just knowing that what you are trying to achieve is to your benefit. The reality is that each situation that we are faced with will have a different motivating factor. What drives you?  Your desire to reach a desired outcome.  What we are often not aware of is that this desire, and its success is predominantly motivated by your beliefs. If you believe that you can you will. If you believe that you can’t you won’t.

 

Thoughts dictate our success. How we are feeling on any given day and what our mindset is like will affect the outcome of any situation. What do we do to change this pattern of behaviour?  We start to develop an awareness.  An awareness of what is happening, what our internal dialogue is at any given moment, and how we are reacting to this dialogue.

 

Sadly we have all started a project, undertaken an exercise regime, begun another diet, and before we know it we are sick of doing it, and we have lost the motivation to keep going. We give in to the negative dialogue going on between our ears and we return to a familiar pattern. We can become despondent, thus making each new attempt at the same desire becomes an impossible mountain to climb.

 

A perfect example of this is the New Year’s Resolution. At the end of the year we all promise that we will do this or that, and more often than not, a week after all the hype of Christmas and the New Year is over so is our motivation.

 

Motivation is as unique to each individual as our fingerprint. What motivates me may not motivate you. What is the secret to finding your motivating factor? You need to find out what makes you feel excited, what gives you that moment of glee when you think about achieving your goal. What is it about the goal that is so important for you to want to start in the first place? What could demotivate you and why?

Hello World

 

This is going to be our first post at WWN. After a weekend of brain storming, working hard to bring this website together, and a 5 hour drive back home.  I decided I deserved a break and I was going to watch a movie and chill on the couch. How is this relevant to our website? Interesting question. The movie I have just watched is called Chasing Mavericks, which it is about a famous surfer that died at 22 chasing his dreams.

 

What has prompted me to write about it? The fact that I was able to have an ahhha moment.

 

When we embark on a new journey, whether it is building a website, trying a new diet, changing jobs, doing something alone, or that challenges your comfort zone.  The one thing that many of us face making these choices is the fear of "what if". What if I fail, What if everyone hates what I am doing, what if I get judged and criticised. What if I just sit here and think about doing something about it, will I feel any better, any less scared. No I won’t. Why? Because I will judge and criticise myself, I will hate myself for not having the courage to take the leap, to do what I love.

 

I love helping people, I care about what happens to humanity. I care that there are people out there that are afraid of making the first step in their healing journey. I know that we all need someone to put out their hand, and to say “I will help you”. Does it matter that at times we may not be perfect? Absolutely not, because we are all perfect in our imperfections. What really matters is that we recognise that we need help and learn to ask for it, and be willing to make a commitment to ourselves to be the best version of ourselves that we can be. 

 

Many of you are scared because life has dealt you a lousy hand, and one more failure is more than you can bear. The reality is that you have failed regardless if you have not tried at all. The truth is we need to step forward to get somewhere. If we stand in the same place then we will remain where we have always been. 

 

In Chasing Mavericks they spoke of the four pillars of success. Below is my interpretation of the principles.

Meditation is silencing the mind. When my mind is silent, which it often isn't,  my concentration increases and I experience inner peace in the midst of my turmoil: living in NYC, or for that matter, living in this world. Inner peace is what attracts me and many others to meditation. We can all benefit from it.

 

When I attended Cal Arts in the 1970s, everyone did Tai Chi. You would see people in the halls, in the hills and on mountain tops practicing Tai Chi. It was where I learned about breath and meditation.

 

Today I practice "Chocolate YUM Meditation". I find it easy and fun. And, eating chocolate while meditating supports cardiovascular health by lowering cholesterol and improving blood pressure. 

 

I suggest trying all different types of meditation to see what works for you.
