Detoxify Your Life
When you hear the term “detoxify your life,” your first thought may be, “What’s that, some kind of herbal cleanse?” While herbs are great detoxifiers, detoxifying your life encompasses more than herbal remedies.
Think back to the reasons why asthma is getting harder to treat – toxins in beauty products, air, food, and medications, just to name a few. Avoiding toxins and reducing your exposure to anything toxic in your life will improve your health.
While toxins are technically thought of as substances, people, jobs, and situations may be toxic to your health too.
As you take note each day note of how you are feeling you will become adept at identifying the toxins making you ill, regardless of the form they take.
Detoxification is a personal process. For example, if drinking milk irritates your asthma symptoms, your means of detoxifying is likely to be avoiding milk products. If you have dust mites in your mattress that are making you wheeze, you may decide to save money so that you can purchase a new hypoallergenic mattress. You may find that you get stressed every time that you go to visit a relative. In this case, you may opt for fewer visits, consult a therapist, or change the relationship.
Detoxification is a crucial part of a holistic plan for living life well. Avoiding the toxins that promote negative reactions is a primary strategy for anyone who has asthma.
Detoxification is an ongoing process. For example, if you think dust mites are what cause you the most distress, take steps to get rid of them first. Then, gradually, get rid of the other toxins in your life as well.
You may need to use an air purifier. Eating a vegan diet helps many people who have asthma. Take small steps. Instead of buying a shampoo loaded with chemicals, try an organic product made of ingredients with names you can pronounce. If you know you are overweight or need to stop smoking, consider the options that will help you to succeed.
You may feel that stopping smoking, reducing your intake of toxins, or buying an air purifier is not possible for you. You may think, “That’s too hard, I’ll just take my medication.”
The list of circumstances and substances that provoke your asthma symptoms may seem overwhelming, and it’s hard to do more when you feel poorly. I challenge you to take one step, each day, for one week. See if you become empowered. Your asthma symptoms may even start to decrease.
As you take each tiny step forward, you will gain momentum and your illness will have less power over you. You will begin to be well in mind, body, and spirit.
