Stress and Toxicity: What’s Going On?


I have written a few articles on Nutrition and Chiropractic over the years. Sometimes I wonder… What’s going On?  Why do you ask?  Because some days I feel like Poop! Most of the time it’s because I overindulged the day before or even several days in a row.

Most of us go through ups and downs both emotionally and physically.  Financial stress and Family stress are probably the most common factors.  As my chiropractor says “There are 3 types of stress: Chemical, Physical, and Emotional.”

The Physical Stress I can try to manage with regular workouts, chiropractic adjustments, and massage therapy.  When I say “regular” workouts I mean 3-4 times per week and incorporating cardio and weight lifting each time.  I’m not a big fan of some of the “fad” kill-yourself workouts mostly because I see the harmful effects of improper training when patients come into the office.

The Emotional Stress can be tough, but there is one thing you can try to remember:  “You cannot control the people around you, but you can try to control the way you react to them.” Wise women once said that to me, and I have repeated it to myself many times.

The Chemical stress is a whole world in itself.  Proper nutrition and supplements are necessary.

Hydration is also very important. Drinking adequate amounts of water every day can decrease your risk of weight gain, kidney stones, and toxicity. Not drinking enough water can also reduce digestive efficiency and organ function.

Do you drink filtered water, from the tap or bottled water? Could your water be making you sick?

Think drinking bottled water is the solution?  Studies show that bottled water is simply expensive tap water.

Toxicity can be a slow, silent killer.

The most common signs of toxicity are:

  • Fatigue
  • Irregular bowel movements
  • Acne
  • Increased “belly” or spare tire
  • Inflammation
  • Headaches
  • Constant bloating
  • Excessive sweating
  • Decreased libido
  • Depression
  • Reduced Metal Clarity

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms it’s time to figure out WHY?

You need a simple, efficient and cost-effective water filter.
A filtration system capable of filtering fluoride, arsenic, leads 99.99% Bacteria Removal and 99.9% Virus Reduction. Filtration system that removes 100% of the Escherichia coil in water.

The next step to consider is a 7-day, 14-day or 21-day detox program.
There are many options out there, which can be tailored to fit each lifestyle.
