Why do you need to rebalance your body?The body needs to cleanse itself of toxins each day. Toxins the body cannot eliminate are stored in fatty tissue, joints, muscles, and the brain. These toxins can clog cell membrane walls which are then unable to absorb enough nutrition to support normal cell functioning. Over time, this leads to reduced vitality and weakened immune and lymphatic systems. You can see this visually on pH strips as toxins tend to be acidic and reduce the pH balance. The AquaVida foot spa helps the body rebalance itself, improve pH, and increase energy levels
How do toxins build up?There are 500,000 different chemicals used to make, lubricate, clean, coat, wrap, and finish the products we use. Each year over 5,000 new chemical substances are invented. And while our bodies have complex systems that remove toxins, namely the lymphatic, skin, liver and kidneys, they are no match for this onslaught.
Heavy metals, minerals, synthetic chemicals and hormones, even human and animal wastes are in the water we drink, the foods we eat, the clothes we wear, the houses we live in, the air we breathe, and the cosmetics we use.
Cosmetics are currently below the radar when it comes to identifying toxins. TEA (triethanolamine), DEA (diethanolamine), and MEA (monoethanolamine) are commonly used in cosmetics in the USA. Their use is restricted in Europe as they are known carcinogens. Almost 50% of cosmetics containing ethoxylated surfactants were found to contain dioxane, a carcinogen. Most shampoos contain Sodium or Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, which caused eye damage, central nervous system depression, and even death to animals that were exposed to it.
The skin is the largest organ in our body and because it is permeable it easily absorbs toxins. The scalp is especially permeable to toxins. Consider the numbers of toxic chemicals put in your hair to color or bleach, shampoo, condition, and treat it.
Our bodies are bombarded by toxins.
In 1999 a noted author and activist, had his blood tested for 150 different commonly used chemicals. His blood had 84 synthetic compounds, including 13 different Dioxins, 31 different PCB's, DDT, lead, organochlorine pesticides, chlorine, and malathion, etc.
