Can vaccines be trusted?

This debate we believe will be one that will always be divided between those that want to believe that vaccines are safe and should be given to all children and those that believe vaccines do nothing except, contain poisonous chemicals and have created so many side effects for adults and children that the evidence is more overwhelming than not as to why it would be better for you to find Healthier Options. Personally, it is my opinion, that this should be a decision left to the parents of each child and NOT to have that right taken away from them by governments and big pharmaceutical companies that seem to be the only ones that prosper in this debate.  I for one became very sick after have injections before going away to travel many years ago and ended up with severe adult whooping cough which has taken me years to recover from. It took it’s toll on my health and my business at the time. Never again will I inject any vaccines into my body. I also personally believe that by eating the right foods and quantities of food, getting air, water, rest, exercise and maintaining a positive and healthy mind and body will go a long long way to ensuring my body and mind stays in optimal health and therefore it should never need the aid of injections or pills to cure any ailments. That is just my opinion! It’s not about me anyway, so I continue…

Sadly though, the debate goes on and some still do not want to even look at any form of evidence or material out there which might lead to the fact that vaccines are NOT safe to put into anybody’s body. Adults, childrens or animals.

We’ve found some interesting video’s you might want to take some time to listen to and do your own research. Make up your own mind as to what you believe is the Healthier Option for you. All I will say is, please investigate the side effects of all ingredients in those vaccines and even medicines before you do anything further. DO NOT take for gospel what a doctor tells you – they’re never going to tell you they’re bad for you – they sign an oath – they will not go against that oath and the BIG pharmaceutical companies will always prosper. Always do lots of research. I personally have been following the teaching and educating myself from the likes of Tyler and Don Tolman.

Skin Cancer Scam

Some of you may have heard that you must cover up with sunscreen to protect your skin from the awful rays of the sun. Especially here in Australia, we have the saying “Slip, Slop, Slap” and for many years growing up as kids we would play in the sun and at the beach and not give a care in the world.

Sadly, though it’s the pharmaceutical companies that are causing more skin cancer than ever before due to the chemicals that they put into the sunscreens. You then put them on your skin and go and bake in the sun. When the sun and the chemicals react, this is when you can cause the most damage to your skin. It’s not the sun! It’s the chemicals inside the sunscreens that does it.

Have you bothered to even look up what each of the ingredients does and the side effects it has – probably not.

Now I know I might upset some of my friends here because they’ve gone through the horrible process of having melanomas removed however I urge anyone who is taking the time to read this, to think twice, be open to finding out further what is really true and make healthier choices for you and your body before deciding to use chemicals, surgery, pills & lotions just because you want to believe that what your doctor is telling you to be the truth.  Many years ago I would have done the same however I am learning from some of the most amazing people on this planet and have started changing what I eat and how I do things in life and I have noticed a difference to my health already. Although I love the summer months rather than the winter months, I’ve never been a fan of spending hours and hours in the hot Aussie sun anyway nor spending hours baking myself at the beach – in fact I tend to steer clear of the beaches altogether.  You might be thinking how sad, especially if your a beach going fan however it doesn’t bother me, its just not one of my interests. I have lots of other things that excite me more. Enough about me though!

Now I’m not saying for one minute that you should go out into the hot Australia sun for the whole day and bake yourself – that would be just plain silly and irresponsible however getting out in the sun for short periods of time is good for you.

What happens to the body after putting nail polish on?

“Even the most health-conscious people can fail to consider how nail polish is affecting their bodies. But a recent study found that many of the most popular nail polish brands in America are much more harmful than they would seem.

What the Research Shows

Researchers recently tested for signs of chemical toxins in 24 women participating in their study. They found evidence of toxins in the bodies of every single woman. What was the source of these chemicals? Nail polish. The results showed that 100% of the participants showed signs of triphenyl phosphate only 10 hours after applying nail polish. This type of conclusive result is remarkable, and it’s also alarming.

In a follow up study, the same researchers tested 10 different nail polishes for triphenyl phosphate, and discovered the chemical in 8. Two of those polishes that tested positively for the chemical did not disclose it on their product label. This could mean that up to 20% of nail polishes sold in our country contain a dangerous chemical that isn’t listed as an ingredient.

What is Triphenyl Phosphate?

One of the biggest concerns about triphenyl phosphate (or TPHP) is that it is known to disrupt humans’ endocrine system, which controls all our hormones. Head researcher, Dr. Heather Stapleton, voiced her concerns, saying, “There is growing evidence suggesting that TPHP may affect hormone regulation, metabolism, reproduction and development”.

This is particularly harmful for the young girls who use nail polish regularly, since healthy hormonal development is an essential part of their growth. Nevertheless, TPHP poses a serious health risk to anyone exposed to it. It’s also known for being:

-Neurotoxin (developmental effects)

-Endocrine Toxin

-Reproductive Toxin

Skin irritant and allergen

Other Health Threats

-Formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is a well known carcinogen that can dissolve in water and in air (you know that strong nail polish smell?). Exposure to this chemical can also produce symptoms like a scratchy throat, asthma, and difficulty breathing. Those with chronic diseases are especially susceptible to poisoning from formaldehyde.

-Toluene. This chemical is known to impede development in children (and some scientists found traces of it in breast milk!). Additionally, it can be irritating to the skin upon exposure.

-Dibutyl Phthalate. Some nail polish brands swap this phthalate for TPHP, but it’s no better for your health. In fact, it poses similar health risks such as hormonal disruption and reproductive system toxins.

Natural Nail Polish Alternatives

Luckily, there are some companies who decided to respond to the discoveries of dangerous nail polish ingredients. There are a handful of awesome, natural alternatives that don’t contain the same risks of allergies, cancer, and hormone disruption. Here are some of our favorite options that offer a great selection at great prices!

1. Honeybee Gardens carries a line of natural nail polish in a wide variety of colors. These are actually water-based (so they remove effortlessly with your standard rubbing alcohol) and contain absolutely no traces of dangerous chemicals or carcinogens.

2. Acquarella has a selection of over 50+ nail polish colors. These are all water-based, and don’t contain any formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate, mercury, or wheat products.

3. SpaRitual is a toxin-free brand of nail polish that is also totally vegan!

4. Peacekeeper Cause-Metics also has a few bright nail polishes that are infused with argan oil, as well as being toxin-free. This one’s a great way to make a classic color keep your nails moisturized.

Your mani-pedi should be a fun way to express yourself, and not a threat to your health, or the health of your growing children. But it’s easy to make the switch to health-conscious nail polish without compromising your wallet OR your sense of style!
