Almost two decades has passed since the world entered the new millennium. More and more people want to know how they can start living better. Clean living is a major part of this idea and movement. For those interested in moving in this direction, they really want to know how they can improve their life and surroundings so that it’s cleaner for them and the environment.
Changing to a diet that removes as many chemicals and processing as possible is part of this movement. The idea of eating cleaner just feels better and ultimately is better for the body. Returning to natural foods such as fresh vegetables and fruits along with meat that is raised naturally on the farm is how anyone can easily begin using cleaner food. Cows are meant to graze on grass and they were never designed to eat grain.
But it was found that grain could fatten the cow faster and this process began being used. Additionally, because cows are now often raised close together, instead of being able to roam open fields, it’s necessary to give them antibiotics and when someone eats the meat of a cow that has been given antibiotics, that person gets some of those antibiotics into their system. Of course, cattle are not the only farm animals that are being raised with chemicals and unnatural methods that are meant to make them grow faster and fatter in a shorter period of time.
Farm animals are not the only things that are full of chemicals. Many of the vegetables and fruits that are grown today have been genetically altered so that they are seedless. They are also chemically induced or genetically induced to be resistant against pests. And the nation is consuming these chemicals and pesticides, and no one really knows what affect the genetic alterations may cause in the future.
Household Cleaning Products
Whether it’s the laundry detergent that a person uses or the dishwashing detergent or dish soap, and even shampoos and body soap, most usually have unnatural chemicals that are harsh on the skin and can cause allergic reactions. When making a move to clean living it is important that cleaning products in the home are considered along with other efforts to move into the habit of living cleaner. Look for natural detergents and soaps that use fewer or no chemicals. Often this will mean that things like shampoo and toothpaste will not foam up as many people are used to.
But the very fact that toothpaste or shampoo foams up shows that there is a chemical that’s being used to cause that to happen. Natural soap does not foam up like that. So it is necessary to understand that natural soap, which doesn’t use chemicals, will clean someone’s teeth and body and hair just as well but without all the foam.
At first, anyone changing to a cleaner way of living for themselves and the environment may find it difficult. But it doesn’t take long to adjust to the changes. Almost everyone who makes the change is glad they did.
