For Detoxers everywhere, I wish I could tell you that your daily turmeric shot was enough, but our daily exposure to harmful chemicals, heavy metals and environmental toxins infiltrate and insidiously infect our immune systems... That’s why after analyzing countless blood panels, stool profiles and toxic metal labs - including my own - I was doggedly determined to create a comprehensive detox program that worked from the inside out and the outside in. Presenting the LLH 4’C’s Detox Protocol- Cleanse, Cosmetics, Cook and Clean.
So, while you sip your Green Goddess smoothie (see p. 40 Vibrant Skin At Any Age. Click here to purchase), unzip your make-up bag. Open your drawers overflowing with brand name bottles and jars of “anti-aging” lotions and potions. You may be stunned to see that MOST of your favorite Department Store/ Sephora lines contain one of more potentially harmful ingredients that are surreptitiously seeping into pores, tissues and organs!
I implore you to throw out the products containing the toxins below (all listed in my book on page 48-49. Click here to order). Clean cosmetic lines listed below.
The Sinful Seven
Acrylamide: Found in many hand and face creams. Linked to mammary tumors in lab research.
Mineral Oil, Paraffin and Petrolatum: Coat the skin like plastic, clogging pores and creating a build-up of toxins, which in turn accumulate and can lead to dermatologic issues. Shows cellular development and causes you to show earlier signs of aging.
Parabens: An estimated 13,200 cosmetic, hair and skincare products contain parabens. Parabens have hormone disrupting qualities, mimicking estrogen, which interfere with the body’s endocrine system. Studies implicate their connection with cancer.
Phenol Carbolic Acid: Found in many lotions and skin creams. This harmful acid can cause circulatory collapse, paralysis, convulsions, coma and even death from respiratory failure.
Propylene Glycol: Used as a moisturizer in cosmetics and as a carrier in fragrance oils. This chemical is proven to cause dermatitis, kidney or liver abnormalities. Products laved with propylene glycol may inhibit skin cell growth or cause skin irritation.
Sodium Laurel or Laurel Sulfate (SLS): Found in engine degreasers, garage floor cleaners, at the care wash… and in over 90% of personal care products! SLS breaks down the skin’s moisture barrier and penetrates the skin. This sudsing agent also allows other chemicals to infiltrate deep into your body’s cells.
Toluene: Harmful if inhaled or absorbed through the skin. Toluene is made from petroleum or coal tar which is found in most synthetic fragrances, at nail salons and in the majority of nail polishes. Chose your colors wisely!
I'm also excited to share a new discovery - one that I’ve tested on a variety of clients with rave reviews. A spray that is literally a mineral-intensive facelift in a bottle ( 80 MAJOR/TRACE Plant based minerals). A natural electrolyte feeding/hydrating skin on a transdermal level, improving SKIN HEALTH. From reducing the appearance of age spots, dissolving fine lines and wrinkles to clearing toxins on cellular level, Humic/Fulvic Acid minerals are an integral part in your LLH 4C’s detox protocol
