How To Get Clients To Drink More Water & Reduce their False Oestrogen Load

I’m just back from Wholefoods on High St Kensington in London and managed to spend £60 in a heartbeat!  The price of health hey, but the items I was buying are totally non-negotiables for me – organic/paraben free shampoo, moisturizer, deodorant and body wash and a couple of packets of Himalayan Mountain Salt and a bottle of Echinacea Tincture.  Here’s why:

Why Echinacea?  A Quick Overview

In comparison with antibiotics, Echinacea works by stimulating our own immune system.  They can be taken before you feel unwell as an insurance policy or actually when you are in the grips of being unwell.  Antibiotics work by destroy both harmful and beneficial bacteria.  As a result of using Echinacea instead of antibiotics your immune system naturally becomes better able to deal with infections and viruses – as they happen.  Most people take it for a week or so every few months to keep their immune system in check and give it a natural boost.  As a side note, I actually can’t tell you the last time I even had a sniffle, nevermind a full-blown cold!

Why Organic/Paraben Free Skin Care Items?

So, if your clients are really getting serious about their ‘deep’ health and/or have hormonal imbalances they really need to address the toxic ‘false Oestrogen’ aspect of what they put on their skin on a daily basis at least.  As someone who has felt the hurricane of ill-health due to Oestrogen dominance, I no longer think twice about spending £8 on an organic deodorant and it’s not  a she-she Southern thing at all, but I’ll leave you to make your own mind up tho with a few links below:

How To Make Drinking Water More Purposeful

Ok, so we all know we need to drink more (filtered) water.  Sorry!!!! There’s tons of Oestrogen in tap water thanks to women peeing out their contraceptives! But the fact is that most people just don’t like it!  How then do we get stubborn clients to change their ways?

We a) make water more interesting and b) really help them see that with a couple of key additions, they can turbo charge their water to create an elixir of youth and health! Well, sort of :-).   Anyway, here are a couple of links to great articles that cover the benefits of adding a pinch of Himalyan Mountain Salt and lemon juice to your water.  As someone who has never been a fan of water, this finally did the trick, I have a BIG WHY! ANSWERED and strangely it just feels sooooo right and if I don’t have it, I REALLY MISS IT.

10 Reasons Why You Should Have Lemon or Lime Juice Daily

So, a little food for thought and PS, if it seems a little overboard when you check the links, dont’ get panicked, if you just consider that your skin is your biggest organ and you put stuff on it daily, wouldn’t you want to ensure that stuff was NOT harmful to your health, and the water thing….if you even need convincing of that as a ‘purveyor of sweating’, you’re a naughty one!

If you want more on water, check out these two easy to read PDF’s, both inspired by the work of  Dr. Fereydoon Batamanghelidj, author of the books “Your Body’s Many Cries For Water” and “Your Not Sick, You’re Thirsty”.
