Since being diagnosed with an autoimmune condition, I have become focused on healthy living, which includes the products I put on my skin and use in my home. No one yet understands what exactly causes MS or other autoimmune diseases, except that it is some sort of environmental factor to those who are genetically predisposed.
The American Autoimmune Related Disease Association (AARDA) state that 50 million Americans suffer from autoimmune disease! Researchers have identified 80-100 different autoimmune diseases and suspect at least 40 additional diseases of having an autoimmune basis. These diseases are chronic and can be life-threatening, this is crazy and unacceptable.
What can we do about it?
Well, in my opinion we have to go back to times when we weren’t putting toxic chemicals into and on our bodies. Most people have learned to read labels on the food they eat; however, it’s equally important to become ingredient detectives when choosing personal care and home products, which is why I am so happy to have been introduced to the Purehaven Essentials line of personal and home care products.
All of their products are free of harmful chemicals. Their formulations are based on as many natural, plant-based, wild crafted and certified organic ingredients where possible.
