It’s time for spring cleaning, but do not overdo it. You’re likely too clean already, indoors and outside. In 1976, a film starring John Travolta titled “The Boy in the Plastic Bubble” told the story of a kid who had been born with an improperly functioning sistema immunitario, which makes it impossible for him to come into contact with the external world.
Nel 1976 sembrava inverosimile che potesse succedere qualcosa, ma il nostro pianeta contemporaneo super-pulito potrebbe, in realtà, creare paesi pieni di persone disabili a causa di un sistema immunitario indebolito. Il numero di persone con asma, allergie e altri disturbi immunitari è alle stelle. Le case sono ormai quasi antisettiche. I nostri corpi entrano raramente in contatto con batteri, muffe o funghi. I bambini non vanno nemmeno più fuori a giocare nella sporcizia.
Things are just too clean. As an infant, you’re born germ-free. Even the fantastic digestive bacteria which our bodies rely upon must be obtained after birth. The body has to be exposed to germi to be able to strengthen its immune system, just like your muscles need exercise to get powerful. As the old saying goes “use it or lose it”. Then there’s the issue of how we eliminate the germs.
Toxic substances are used on virtually every surface in our homes, our offices and public spaces; substances we breathe into our lungs and absorb through our pelle to our blood, further adding to the toxic burden. So, the next time you wash, rather than using toxic chemicals, use “green” cleaning products. They’re better for your body and better for the environment. Most everyone is now quite knowledgeable about the way the improper use of antibiotics has created drug-resistant breeds of viruses but most individuals are unaware that using antibacterial soaps and hand sanitizers, rather than good old soap and warm water, has spawned superbugs such as (XXDR) TB.
Our mouths are also lacking the bacteria necessary to operate properly (tooth decay is contemporary problem). Like antibiotics, antiseptic mouthwashes destroy all the bacteria in your mouth indiscriminately – not just the few that cause bad breath. A healthy oral bio-film, one that may fight tooth decay, comprises countless germs. After meals, simply rinse with plain water to maintain the pH in the mouth and the good bacteria doing their jobs. If you have to use something more powerful, use hydrogen peroxide (a compound your body naturally produces) rather than mouthwash. Flossing, of course, is also a fantastic idea.
Circa il cibo
Food is too clean now also. The foods we eat are almost dead. Not only are they devoid of harmful bacteria but they’re also lacking vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. This provides a double whammy. Commercial farming, chemical fertilizers, pesticides, choosing foods until they have ripened, feed (that frequently contains antibiotics, hormones and Genetically Modified Organisms) given to animals rather than organic grasses, additives, fortifiers, artificial sweetener, preservatives, and the worldwide shipping of vegetables and fruits from all over the world all supply us with foods lacking in the fundamental building blocks vital for good health.
The yeasts (beta-glucans) that our bodies used for thousands of years to trigger our immune defenses have been eliminated from the foods available to us too. Our immune systems are now essentially sleeping on the job. In regards to food, 1 response is named LOIS. Foods which are Local Organic and In Season comprise the best nutrition. The nearer to organic, the better foods are for our own bodies. Raw and raw foods are best. So, eat those LOIS fruits, vegetables and nuts. To get beta-glucans back into your system, you can add MonaVie’s brand new juice blend called (M)mÅ”n. So, the overriding message is to return to natura and, when cleaning, think again before you sterilize your surroundings. You could be causing the problem you’re attempting to prevent.
