"Longlife is not given to us, it is earned by how we take care of our body temple,
and how safe our dwellings are to protect our body temple, while we live and work in our spaces, and live out our purpose for being here." Kim Louise Easterbrook
If you haven't read my story yet, by the age of 38, my sister and I had lost 11 family members to cancer, one of those being our mother at 58, and stepdad at 59.
After my mother passed, I took a hair sample to get it tested and was totally shocked to find asbestos, formaldehyde, aluminum, and a list a mile long of the toxins in her body. My call out to the universe to understand the why? attracted one of my greatest teachers ever, Samuel Epstein, MD, a scholar, and professor of environmental and occupational medicine.
Dr. Epstein was known for his activism towards the cause of cancer and had written 15 books, and published over 250 scientific articles on the subject.
Epstein emerged as a leading international authority on the causes and prevention of cancer by identifying and preventing avoidable exposures to carcinogens in consumer products, air, water, and the workplace, on which he has conducted extensive basic and applied scientific research, until he passed at the age of 91, in 2018.
Time To Detox!
I learned from Dr. Epstein, of the many carcinogens that were known to cause cancer surrounded in the home. This led me on a path on the "How To Prevent Cancer?"
At the time, I was a real estate stager, on the other half of my life, I also found a majority of my clients living in toxic and unhealthy homes. Part of staging is tearing down the old or even moving all the furniture out and bringing in new furniture. I got very sick from being amongst dust, mold, artificial chemicals, and off-gassing, the emf and wifi pollution, and, of course, the toxic cleaning products lying around in my client's homes that were also off-gassing into their homes. I would come out of my client's homes, buzzing, dizzy, and feel like I was just hit by a truck. It would always take me a couple of days to recoup.
After we sold my clients staged home, it was a great opportunity to set up their new home and office for healthier living. I was able to teach my clients about the chemicals, and help them transform their homes. I began getting calls of good health and business was booming.
Have you ever thought about all the chemicals you are exposed to in your home? The air inside your home is 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air outside! We always hear about detoxing our body, but first, we have to DETOX OUR HOME!
After learning about toxic household chemicals, I went on to study with a kinesiologist and nutritionist, Gladdy Crosson. I was by her side for 10 years helping her with lectures, and writing nutritional course material. I still refer to these health and nutrition binders today.
From there I studied with Jeffrey Armstong in Auryurvedic Body-Type Analysis. This was fascinating of how our bodies are all made up of elements and no one size fits all.
At the same time, I changed my eating habits to organic and began writing articles for health magazines, and also became a Life Extension Practitioner and Natural Health Product Consultant,
I settled into simply taking my clients shopping to help them transform their entire kitchen for healthy and natural, non-toxic living, eating, and cooking.
You And Your
I believe there is a simpler way of taking care of our body temple. The world has made it so complicated, When we were born we were made perfect by the creation of nature, god, the universe, the cosmos, whatever you want to call it. Nature also made sure to provide us with food grown on trees, grown in the ground, and grown in the ocean to provide and maintain our body temples.
We were not meant to sit for long periods of time. Lymphatic stagnation is a huge factor in inflammation.
Our bodies are meant to move. There are different exercises for different body types, Not everyone likes to meditate or do yoga, some of us like to run, and do fast sports, to fuel that fire element in our body type.
Getting up every 20 minutes from your computer and jumping on a mini-trampoline or doing some sort of action or stretching, is one step closer to living a longer life which I have written about for years. GET UP AND MOVE!
