My clean green beauty routine. By chemo-free survivor Cortney Campbell.

An important aspect of preventing and healing cancer is to reduce your body’s toxic load.
But many of us are unknowingly poisoning and polluting ourselves with what we put IN and ON our bodies. The less toxins your body absorbs, the less work it has to do to detoxify. Make sense?

An often overlooked source of chemical toxins are in the body care products we use daily: soap, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, make-up, lotion, toothpaste… believe me, it all adds up.

Today’s post is a guest blog from my friend and fellow natural survivor Cortney Cambell of
Green Drink Diaries. I asked her to share her clean green beauty routine and favorite non-toxic personal care products, and she said yes, because she’s awesome.

An Inconvenient Tooth – Fluoride Documentary

So last week I stumbled across another documentary about water fluoridation that came out in late 2012.

It’s a really great compilation of interviews with experts on the subject.

The only downside is that it’s almost 3 hours long.

But since it’s just interviews and no important visuals, if you don’t want to sit down and watch it, you can just press play and listen to it while you are doing something else, yard work, cleaning house, exercising… I pulled it up on my iphone and listened to it on a three hour drive to Nashville a few days ago.

Linda’s Survivor Story: Root Canals and Cancer

My name is Linda, I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in June of 2010 at age 47.
I had the surgery and unfortunately I did the chemo. A few months into the chemo I started reading books and changed a lot of things. I finished all but one treatment – I did stop early though because of the things I had learned while reading and researching.

I changed my diet to completely vegan, with juicing, I started doing the flax oil and cottage cheese (Budwig Protocol), drinking Essiac Tea, and began seeing a naturopathic doctor who also has medical doctors at his clinic who deal with cancer, and changed my supplements to the best I could buy.

But the thing that I think saved my life was having all of my root canals removed…

Watch this movie: Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead

This movie has been out for awhile and it just occurred to me that I have’t said anything about it on the blog. So today I am!

Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead is a documentary about Joe Cross, an overweight pill-popping Australian man with a rare chronic disease who decides to go on a 60-day juice fast while road-tripping across the U.S.

There some really amazing serendipitous events that happen along the way which I won’t divulge, but I will tell you that his health transformation is incredible…

The Showerwise Shower Filter

Is there anyone in the world that doesn’t love to take long, hot, steamy showers?
No. There is not.
Which is why this is going to bum you out:
Taking long hot showers exposes you to more toxic chemicals than actually drinking 2 liters of the same water!
This is because toxins evaporate out of the water into steam and are inhaled directly into your lungs. They are also absorbed through your skin.
Chlorine alone has been linked to allergies, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, heart disease, strokes, cancer, and even premature aging of your skin.

The Showerwise Shower Filter  removes 95% of chlorine as well as iron, lead, mercury, hydrogen sulfide, etc. It also inhibits bacterial, fungal and mildew growth.
I never thought my shower steam had an “odor” until I installed our Showerwise filter.  I noticed right away that the smell of the shower steam was different. In fact there was no smell at all. The chlorine odor (and who knows what else) was gone.  It comes with a massaging shower head and the filter lasts up to18 months.
