Four Common Bathroom Mishaps

Aug 17, 2007
No, I am not talking about number one and number two !

Being a health care professional and remembering how I was more of a sickly child growing up compared to my other siblings have made me want to dig deep in finding valid reasons for everything medical or not.

Answers like "familial" or "genetic" never did me justice in explaining the many medical problems I and many have to deal with as We enter a new century of an overwhelming amount of new medical diagnosis and terminology that simply didnt exist 30+ years ago.

Those who have read any of my articles sigh as I continue to hammer down on the lovely and amazing chemical over dependance our human kind believes is O.K.

Today I want you to mozy on into your bathroom and pick up 4 things: the first will be your favorite shampoo that you believe you cannot live without, second is your toothpaste, third pick up your or your husband's after shave and finally pick up your everday moisturizer or skin lotion.

Now, sit down and read the back labels of each looking for the following:
In your shampoo: Sodium Lauryl Sulphate,Sodium Lauryth Sulphate,Polyethelene Glycol, DEA (diethanolamine) & TEA (Triethanolamine). In your toothpaste: Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Monofluorophosphate & Sodium Saccharin. In the after shave: Isopropyl & Alcohol.
Finally,in the moisturizer or lotion look for: Formaldehyde (Q15, Q30...etsc), Petrolatum, Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Ethyl Paraben & fragrance.

If you have been unable to locate any of these chemicals in your toiletries then thumbs up for you! put this article away and continue on with what ever it is you were doing. However, if you have identified one or more of those names in your personal care products then a big red alarm should go off in your head right about now!

I will not go into the fine details of how each of the above chemicals and many more are contributing directly to many health problems you are currently experiencing and a lot more you will confront in the future. Instead I will leave it up to you to do your home work.

My job here is to make that alarm go off in your head as I point out that things like allergies, skin problems, asthma and respiratory problems,cancer, behavioral problems like ADD and ADHD, autism, auto-immune disorders, miscarries, headaches,fatigue...etc. are all either directly or indirectly related and aggrevated by the above mentioned chemicals and many more which I simply could not list without converting this into a chemistry lesson.

So to those of you who have converted a portion of their home to a pharmacy line they can't live without, you need to divert a whole lot of attention to the cause of your medical complaints and save yourself some money and health.
