Be Good Stewards of All That God Gives

Today my Health & Wellness business and my personal prayer life collided.
I have just been asked to pray for an 8 month old baby with cancer. It is heartbreaking and another wake-up call because I know without a doubt that many cancers can be avoided. My toxin studies repeatedly reinforce my feeling of urgency to spread the word about toxins we should avoid for the sake of our health. . . for the sake of our babies' health.

Please do help with prayers for this little baby.
I do not know if her cancer could have been prevented but I do know that many kinds of cancer and other sicknesses CAN be prevented.
We are to be good stewards of all that God has given us. We are responsible for what we do to our bodies and our environment. Get informed and make changes as you can.


As long as you breathe, eat and drink, you can't entirely escape environmental toxins. Research on the risks associated with these toxins is ongoing, but many scientists believe that existing evidence suggests that toxic buildup in our bodies contributes to the development of Parkinson's disease and may increase risk for some types of cancer and other serious conditions. A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study that tested 10,000 men and women for the presence of 116 chemicals found that most Americans carried some combination of these toxins in in their blood.

"Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God? You are not your own. You were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body." (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

Here is some quick and helpful information:
Household sources of toxins that are under investigation...
Cleaning products. Most people use a wide variety of cleaning products, many of which contain toxic chemicals. Chlorine bleach is potentially carcinogenic and can damage the respiratory system. Among its by-products are chlorinated hydrocarbons, chloroform and trihalo-methanes, all of which act like weak estrogens and cause breast cells to divide more rapidly. These by-products have been shown to cause breast tumors in animals.

What to do: Replace all store brands with cleansers that are free of chlorine and dangerous chemicals. I highly recommend Melaleuca because I am personally familiar with their whole store and use their products exclusively. I can vouch for the company. Request info.

Remember, you can also use many natural cleaning alternatives -- baking soda to scrub sinks, tubs and toilets... white distilled vinegar in a pump-spray bottle to clean mirrors and windows.
