I remember sitting in a lecture hall studying molecular genetics and being in absolute awe over the intelligence of the human body. When I started to appreciate and understand the brilliance of my body, I felt compelled to assist it in whatever way I could.
Welcome back to our Health and Wellness series.
This is segment 2 of 2, focused on the elimination channels of the body. Click here if you missed Segment 1 of 2.
Today I’m sharing one simple and practical way you can assist your body in eliminating the toxic load. Our physical vessels do so much for us daily so it’s only fair that we help our bodies along the way.
We know that exposure to toxic substances such as pesticides leads to an elevated rate of chronic diseases including:
- Cancer and Diabetes
- Neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
- Birth defects, Reproductive disorders, and Autism
- Asthma, and COPD
Many shoppers choose organic foods because they believe they are grown and produced without the use of pesticides. And because many pesticides are banned from organic agriculture, it is indeed a big step in the right direction.
But nearly all farmers — even organic farmers — use some pesticides. They just use different ones. Why would organic farmers use pesticides? Like conventional farmers or anyone who has a backyard garden, organic farmers are faced with weeds, insects, and diseases. Certain chemicals are permitted, but regulations require these are kept to a minimum.
Based on my experience of shopping organic at Framers market’s, it pays to ask questions. My providers show me a list of the certification they receive for their produce.Click here for a list of farmer’s markets in Sydney, NSW.

Remember to stay in conscious co-creation with your body.
With a Loving heart,
