Welcome to the Health section of the B Holistically wealthy blog.
This is where my passion lies. I began my journey to clean beauty because of some health problems that I began to experience over the last couple years. After doing quite a bit of research I found that the beauty industry has the potential to be severely toxic to Mother Earth, and can also be toxic to our health and wellbeing. Many of the ingredients in the products we use in salons are endocrine disruptors, human carcinogens, and may adversely affect human reproduction or development. Scary stuff, right? And the scarier thing is that not many people or companies, or even doctors are talking about this. Yes, there is the green movement happening and I am so happy people are getting more interested in their health and well-being and that of Mother Earth as well. There is a problem with this though, because companies have caught on to this, flipped it on its back and are using the green beauty movement as a marketing ploy. Such tactics are called green washing, in which companies use buzz words or imagery to seem clean, when in reality they are not.
These first blog posts are just introductions into my ideas for this space. My hope is to breakdown all of this information into smaller, digestible bits so we can start the journey to true holistic wealth. But, for now, I want you to know that I began my green journey a few years back all due to some diagnostics that I got, and will be sharing the deets with all of you, and I knew right then and there I had to make a change. So, here I am sharing my journey hoping you’ll join me.
