Day 10 – Last day of items to replace and add in.
(This list is by no means a complete comprehensive list).
So… ask yourself, what toxin do I use or my family use the most of that should be replaced.
We are all at different parts of our health journey. Today is for you to think about what you personally could replace. Above are some ideas!
Toxins enter our body by:
1. Eating them
2. Breathing them
3. Rubbing them into our skin
Why get rid of toxins?
1️⃣Many are fat soluble and end up being stored in the fatty tissue of our bodies.
2️⃣Toxins can accumulate in the liver, intestines, veins, lymph nodes, salivary glands and lungs as well.
3️⃣Your liver might be burdened by an excess of toxins that directly prevent it from metabolizing nutrients and fats properly
4️⃣If your liver is burdened with toxins, the hormones are not able to exit the body properly and are therefore forced to recirculate throughout the bloodstream. When this happens, an imbalance of the hormones can occur.
ADD – IN: Kindness
Did you n know there are actual scientific studies that show kindness can benefit your health?
1️⃣Being kind boosts serotonin and dopamine, which are neurotransmitters in the brain that give you feelings of satisfaction and well-being, Kindness also releases endorphins. (2,3)
2️⃣Kindness is good for the heart. “Kindness releases the hormone oxytocin. According to Dr. David Hamilton, ‘oxytocin causes the release of a chemical called nitric oxide in blood vessels, which dilates (expands) the blood vessels. This reduces blood pressure and therefore oxytocin is known as a ‘cardioprotective’ hormone because it protects the heart (by lowering blood pressure).’”(3)
3️⃣A group of highly anxious individuals performed at least six acts of kindness a week. After one month, there was a significant increase in positive moods, relationship satisfaction and a decrease in social avoidance in socially anxious individuals. University of British Columbia Study (4)
4️⃣Perpetually kind people have 23% less cortisol (the stress hormone) (5)
And as Dalai Lama said. “Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.” And I add to yourself and others!
