The Huffington Post recently reported findings on the top 12 most pesticide-laden fruits and vegetables. How dismaying it is to read that apples are #1 on the list for pesticides. So much for “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”! The obvious solution would be to eat only organic produce, but the financial burden of doing so is prohibitive. Plus organic choices are sometimes just not available.
While we eat organically as much as possible, exposure to pesticides and environmental toxins is inevitable and that is why we should give our bodies an extra boost by detoxing occasionally. A detox regimen helps rejuvenate and energize and also facilitates weight loss if you feel you need to shed some pounds.
I have created a mini detox booklet that will give you a nice lift on all areas of life – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. The program will begin to bring things into balance. I prefer a gentle approach to cleansing rather than an aggressive one that may lead to health problems.
You can receive a copy of the helpful booklet by donating to Universal Oneness United Faith Canada (UOUFC), a charity that I am active in as a volunteer grief facilitator. UOUFC welcomes people of all faiths, and those with no faith to participate in special events that honour the beliefs of each individual. We seek to share wisdom, create harmony, enhance understanding and foster love, which is the universal oneness of all life.
Offered once a month, our free grief support group is designed to help heal the wounds of folks who may have experienced a significant loss. We offer support and education on dealing with grief and effectively working through the painful process. We offer empathy, education, and support. Your donation is deeply appreciated by the many lives we help!
You can make a donation here. Thanks and good health to you.
