Managing Your Toxic Load - Make changes today for a healthier tomorrow!

Posted on: . Posted in Green Esthetics

toxic

So what exactly is “toxic load?” There is no word in the dictionary that defines “toxic load” so I looked up toxic and load and this is what Merriam-Webster has to say about the two words. First the definition of toxic is “containing or being poisonous material especially when capable of causing death or serious debilitation.” The definition for load is “the quantity that can be carried at one time by a specified means.” So it would seem that “toxic load” is the quantity of poisonous material that our bodies can carry at one time. Now that is the scary part! In order to assure a healthy lifestyle, we need to learn what we can do to minimize the “toxic load” that we ingest into our body through environmental pollutants and other pollutants which increase our body’s “toxic load.”

It's Not Easy Being Green

It seems that everywhere you turn these days you run into the word "green." Green is the way to go. When my kids were little one of their favorite characters was Kermit the Frog. I remember Kermit always saying, "It isn't easy being green." As we go through the world these days and try to do what is the right or "green" thing, we can all relate to Kermit because it isn't easy being green. There are so many products on the market, who knows which one to pick?

These items are high in chromogens, pigment-producing substances with a penchant for sticking to tooth enamel.
