Our Toxic Environment
A Time for Change
Nowadays we hear a lot about the devastating effects of widespread pollution on
our planet’s environment. But how often do we stop to consider its effect
on our bodies? With more than 80,000 chemicals currently in use today and 1,000
more introduced each year, we can no longer deny that we are living in a toxic world—one
in which the rate of illness and chronic disease is rising at an alarming rate.
Dangerous contaminants abound in the air we breathe, the food and water we consume,
and even in the very place we are supposed to be safe from harm: our homes. From
our kitchen appliances to the clothes we wear, to the toys our children play with
every day, hidden toxins have been quietly making their way into our lives and at
times contributing to poor health. The question is what can we do about it?
The Detox Strategy Solution
The basis for the Detox Strategy is Brenda Watson’s easy 5-step RENEW
program—or Reduce, Eliminate, Nourish, Energize, and Wellness—which
provides the tools necessary to lessen our exposure to hazardous toxins, eliminate
those toxins from our daily lives, and nourish and energize our bodies to achieve
a state of optimum well-being.
