Dust and Health

Breathing is life
Air Quality

Where does dust come from? Some comes from outside air (especially during dry weather), and some from what we track in. But most dust comes from us! Each of us sheds about 100 pounds of skin a year.


Some house dust can stay airborne for up to 5 months. Common vacuum cleaners spread about 90% of the dust around, trapping mainly what the human eye can see. Finer particles (less than 3 micron in size) are absorbed right into our blood.


Every day we breathe up to 3 tablespoons of dust, chemicals and dust mite feces.


With 80,000 household chemicals, dander, dust and more is it any wonder so many people are not well?


Vehicles all have air filters in order to protect their engines, we filter our drinking water and wash our food, but we typically do little to ensure the air we breathe is safe!


We can change this. Don't let poor air quality compromise you and your family's health! We offer a variety of solutions that are likely to make a real difference to you. Call now for an appointment.







Residue of popular herbicide likely encourages illness


A chemical and food company wants us to believe that glysophate, a widely-used herbicide, is not only safe -it might be used to treat cancer!


How profitable, as it may also increase your risk for cancer.


Glysophate is considered to be toxic to animals, including humans. A study by two independent scientists, published in Entropy April 2013, connects the increasingly widespread use of glyphosate with modern diseases because of its "inhibition of cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes, an overlooked component of its toxicity to mammals. CYP enzymes play crucial roles in biology, one of which is to detoxify xenobiotics. Thus, glyphosate enhances the damaging effects of other food borne chemical residues and environmental toxins."


In other words, it slowly induces disease.


"Consequences are most of the diseases and conditions associated with a Western diet, which include gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease."


A copy of the whole report can be found under the link GMO's.


Conclusion: only eat organically grown food or foods known not to have been sprayed with Round-up Ready herbicide. Consider also helping your cells to repair from this damage by using Asea.






Ending the Junk Food Obsession

We all know that smoking tobacco is bad for our health. With both public pressure and far higher taxes, smoking is (thankfully) on the decline in Canada.


Now we are facing the crushing health effects of junk food and beverages. These are filled with bad fats, sugar, and salt -plus colorants in soft drinks. The results are alarming: rapidly rising rates of obsity, diabetes, heart conditions, cancer, and far more. Our health care system can't keep up. It turns out that a tobacco company is the largest junk food company! Even the most ardent libertarian (who dislikes government intervention in our lives) may have to concede that doing nothing about this epidemic is harming all of us.


Thus we may have to do the same thing with junk food and drinks as we did with tobacco: apply social pressure as well as add taxes. We know that banning didn't work with alcohol (and isn't working with street drugs). At least taxing these ills will raise money needed to pay for the freedom to eat and drink ourselves into oblivion. For more information read this Globe & Mail article.
