How our Environment Contributes to Disease and How To Fix It

pollution

The #1 cause of disease is stress – but there’s more to this picture than meets the eye and I’ll tell you why. Stress is more than just the stress that we experience at work or when we’re running late for an appointment. There are actually many forms of stress that we may have never thought about before.

One major stress to our body is the quality of food that we are consuming. Click Here to read why.

A second major stress to our body is environmental stress. Sorry to be a ‘Debbie-Downer’ but there is a lot more pollution floating around in the air today than there was 100 years ago – a fact we all know. There is also a lot of newly created chemicals in our standard household cleaners and daily beauty and hygiene regimes. Add to that, 24/7 vibrational, electrical pollution that our bodies and cells feel too, especially now that we all hold transmitting devices in our pockets (cell phones). Our bodies are amazing but they feel STRESSED having to figure out what to do with all of this!

This article is going to take a look at:

  • why our environment could be causing us stress,
  • tell you everything you need to know about it,
  • how to reduce this stress in your life,
  • nutritional support from your nutritionists (us!) that you can do NOW!
  • a recipe (because we love recipes!)

So I figured: let’s figure out a recipe that tastes good, isn’t loaded with fat, and has lots of veggies 🙂 .
