I use neem toothpaste, which I love. Still use some natural lotions but in the summer will use coconut oil to moisturize. What are your favorite oils to use for moisturizing, MZZChief?

I love Babassu soap too. Having to pay shipping on such a small item, is the pits. I can hardly wait till it's in stores. Made from Babassu Oil and that's it :-)

I like Dr. Anita M. Larrows, ND. I found out that Bazillions use Babassu oil for cooking and as soap, moisturizer etc via her website. She has a product recommendation flier here: www.drlarrownd.com/sites/default/fil

I like to use food grade organic oils on my body.
All commercial lotions contain some sort of preservative... I'd rather not deal with that if given a choice.

Baking soda is a quick toothpaste with a low abrasion index which leaves your mouth with an alkaline ph, better for tooth enamel.

Exactly, I use everything natural, organic. And read labels. People need to educate themselves.

It's not just toothpaste that's toxic to your body. It's everything.

Mercury fillings in your teeth, opt for non-mercury, most people don't know there are alternatives.

Stop popular creams and lotions and use things like coconut oil, shea butter etc.

Stop popular shampoos and conditioners, and use safer ones like pure Castile I like the black African bar soap, and the new liquid one: www.iherb.com/Dr-Woods-Shea-Vision-P

My grandsons labs were out of whack and his Nephrologist and I had a very difficult time finding what was wrong (life and death serious) it was his shampoo! Products you put on your skin can get into your bloodstream, and since we don't know what can and what can't get in, it's better to stick with non-toxic products.

What is in your home and what's your home made of? You're breathing whatever in 24/7
If that seems daunting, at least air it out, daily if possible. Homes are practically airtight compared to homes of yesteryear, those old ones had healthier air, if for no other reason than good air circulation... Better to pay a little higher heating/cooling cost then breath in toxic air.

Pharmaceuticals are big business, the drug companies do not have your best interest at heart. I won't even take cholesterol lowering drugs, mine is around about 350 - 400, I'm just fine, my body makes what it needs and I trust it more than I will ever trust BigPharma. Mine has been this high since the first time it was ever tested about 20 years ago.

The Organic Consumers Association reports that even supposedly “organic” body care lines often contain carcinogens, so ya really gotta pay attention.

Of course there is a TON more to be said on keeping our bodies safe and healthy, but it wouldn't all fit in here :-)

Toxic Bodies?

Does the repeated use of deodorant expose you to hazardous chemicals? Find out!

If you’re like many women – you wouldn’t even think of leaving your house without your “face” on - meaning skin lotions, cosmetics and anything else you might use to enhance your natural beauty. Are these products safe?

According to some research, not only are cosmetics potentially toxic, but so are hair products, deodorants, and perfumes. In her book, Not Just a Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of the Beauty Industry, Stacy Malkan reveals the extent of toxic chemicals in personal care products that millions use every day – chemicals that often don’t appear on any ingredient listing for the products.

The result of our use of chemicals in our culture produces some disturbing findings:

• In 2004, scientists discovered pesticides in the blood of newborns

• In 2005, researchers found perchlorate, a substance used in rocket fuel, in human breast milk

• Many people are testing positive for flame retardants, phthalates (oil-based softening agents and preservatives that can affect hormone function and have been linked to birth defects) and lead (contained in lipsticks)

• In 2004, English researchers identified parabens in breast tumor samples. Parabens are found in the vast majority of deodorants, body sprays and skin creams. Because they are absorbed into the body, they are believed to produce an increased risk and incidence of breast cancer

Health and beauty product manufacturers will argue that there are only small amounts of toxic chemicals in their products. This may be true if they were used once, but day after day, over time, is quite a different story. And some countries don’t even require manufacturers of these products to list the ingredients!

There are alternatives. Many people have stopped using a lot of personal care products. As with food, only those labeled, “certified organic,” can be considered safe to use. There is an online database that you can access to determine the toxicity of many of these products. You can also email or call manufacturers who don’t list their product ingredients and ask them for a list.

There is a lot of money generated from the sale of these products, and a lot to be lost by those who use them without knowing the toxins they may contain.

I don't use makeup, all my moisturizers are clean and only use natural deodorants. Vote with your money!
