6 Things to Start Doing to Mitigate the Health Risks of Modernity

Your health is not the responsibility of your parents, your partner, or the government. Your health is your responsibility, and yours alone.

Bombarded with a barrage of harmful man-made chemicals on a daily basis, it is incumbent upon you to protect yourself. By implementing prudent practices into your routine, you can markedly mitigate the pernicious impact of these poisons on your body and mind.

First and foremost, it is important that you acknowledge your personal contribution to this pervasive planetary pollution. As a consumer, your persistent pursuit of material possessions coupled with the complete dependence on the copious comforts and conveniences of modernity is partially to blame for this predicament.

Maintaining this modern way of living that millions have become accustomed to necessitates extensive utilization of resources, which invariably leads to the pollution of the Earth, and, consequently, the contamination of our own bodies.

While enhanced regulations are urgently needed to curb the grossly irresponsible practices of profit-driven corporations that heedlessly produce, distribute, and dispose of health-damaging products and substances, it is ultimately the general populace that drives this endless demand for more.

As a global community, propelled by Western consumption, we have collectively contributed to the creation of this toxic mess. Having witnessed its disastrous ramifications, which continue to amplify decade by decade, implementing substantial lifestyle modifications is not an option but a necessity.

Although attaining total immunity from the ubiquitous synthetic pollutants is impossible, you can significantly diminish your exposure and ameliorate their deleterious effects. This proactive approach is critical if you desire to minimize the risk of preventable maladies and thereby avert unnecessary suffering and untimely death.

Choose inaction or minimal effort and you will end up like most: diseased, devitalized, and depressed.

The money you have toiled for all your life will go to hospitals and doctors, who will prescribe you side effect-laden drugs that will keep you just barely alive to revisit for perpetual prescription refills.

As your vitality wanes, the men in white coats will subject you to increasingly invasive, tissue-damaging diagnostic procedures, while concurrently augmenting the administration of their allopathic poisons to continue profiting off your declining health.

After perusing this article, most readers will proceed with their normal daily routines.

Some will be inspired to take action, but alas, the motivation will be ephemeral.

A minority of readers will go beyond mere contemplation and choose to take charge of their health. It is they who, through assuming responsibility for their well-being, will increase the quality of their earthly existence and elongate their lifespan.

Initially, a lifestyle transformation necessitates a substantial degree of self-discipline. However, over time, the newly adapted habits become ingrained requiring less conscious effort.

Herein, I present a few practical suggestions for those of you who are ready and willing to prioritize your well-being. (Undoubtedly, most health-conscious individuals are already incorporating these practices into their lives. If you belong to this conscious cohort, you are traversing the sane path.)

Organic Food: Always buy organic produce. Although organic is not always perfect, unless you are cultivating your own garden, it is the best option available. Admittedly, the cost of organic produce is higher, but given the extensive and indiscriminate use of cancer-causing agricultural products, it is a wise and necessary choice for safeguarding your health.

Clean Drinking Water: Spring water in glass bottles is the optimal option for drinking water. Should this prove economically unfeasible, consider purchasing a water filter and a distiller so that you can produce clean drinking water at your home. The process goes like this: First, filter; then distill, and finally, remineralize (by adding some lime or lemon juice or a pinch of raw sea salt).

Shower Filter: Install a shower filter to protect your skin, hair, and lungs. While shower filters do not remove fluoride, they help to considerably reduce chlorine and other injurious contaminants that taint public water supplies.

Non-Toxic cookware: Transition to cookware made of stainless steel, enameled cast iron, enameled ceramic, or glass. Stay away from non-stick, aluminum, copper, and subpar stainless steel pots and pans, as they tend to leach dangerous chemicals such as PFAs and heavy metals into the food.

Lymphatic Movement: Rebound on a trampoline for at least ten minutes both in the morning and evening to stimulate the flow of lymphatic fluid through the lymphatic channels. Additionally, incorporate a daily walk of at least 30 minutes, preferably in nature, into your daily routine, to enhance lymphatic flow.

Dietary Choices: Eschew processed foods, fried foods, oils, refined sugars, table salt, processed meats, and dairy. Moreover, eliminate, or drastically reduce, the overall intake of animal proteins and grains, while increasing the consumption of fresh, organic fruits, vegetables, soaked nuts and seeds, and herbs, in their living (uncooked) form. Furthermore, flood your body with bioavailable vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals by drinking at least four cups (32 ounces) of freshly-pressed, raw juice daily, ideally on an empty stomach.

Many more health-optimizing lifestyle modifications can be implemented, however, the purpose of this article is to provide only the most meaningful recommendations that a receptive reader can integrate into their daily routine.
