We spend a lot of time taking care of the outside of our bodies and often neglect the inside. But it’s important to realize that the inside of our body takes a beating as well. Our bodies produce toxins from undigested food which can damage cells and organs. As well our bodies are exposed in other ways such as; toxins come from air pollution, cigarette smoke, alcohol, household cleaners and other products, cosmetics, and food additives, just to name a few things. Over time our bodies store these toxins and as they accumulate our risk of illness increases, therefore it is important to rid ourselves of this toxic build up.
A decrease in energy, brain fog, lethargy, frequent illness, skin conditions, gas and bloating are all signs that it’s time to cleanse!
For those who only go to the bathroom once a day, or even worse once every 2-3 days, it’s time to cleanse! That waste product is sitting in your body like if you had garbage sitting in your home an extra w...

My body was just for show, not for function.
I wanted to take some time to address this topic as many women get very down on themselves for not being what they think is thin, or having abdominal definition or for not being a certain size.... like that actually matters... it doe...
I really appreciate how many people these days are becoming so conscience of what they put in their bodies. We are becoming much more aware of what we fuel our bodies with and how tainted our food is, and can be. It’s definitely refreshing when I see more and more people willing to drop a bit of that ignorance they have been sporting and open up to the realization that things aren’t always what them seem. For example, that big red tomato in the grocery store that you think looks good because it is big, round and red, and is there for you to eat right in the middle of January…And you live in Ontario!

But what I really want to draw attention to is not what we put in our bodies but rather what we put on them. What we wash them with, moisturize them with, shave, decorate ourselves with. I am talking about everything that falls under the umbrella of “cos...
