The Road To A Healthier Life


I remember growing up at a time when it was normal to “whiten” the skin. Everybody seemed to want fairer skin.
I remember all the bottles of skin whitening creams in my home. This was an issue…. I hated the smell. All the creams had a particular smell that left a bitter aftertaste in my mouth…… literally!
I remember walking into a room where someone had just used the cream and my stomach would turn. I wondered why.
Then I found out that most of these creams had hydroquinone in them, a chemical that really harms the body. All these made me stay clear of these creams. Of course, from time to time, I might use some but I tried not to.
Now, with access to countless information on the internet, I have come to see that these creams lead to so many sicknesses and diseases. Most creams nowadays have so many chemicals in them that attack the human body.
I began by checking the labels of everything I buy and was shocked at the number of crazy chemicals that are laced in the everyday things we buy. From food to household cleaning supplies. The list goes on and on. It’s sad how industrialization is actually killing the human race.

I have made major adjustments in my life after discovering this and continue to look for ways to improve the quality of life for me and my family.
I honestly believe God has given me the opportunity to find healthier options for my everyday life and to also make better choices.
I’m hoping to write down every new thing I have been able to discover on this journey.
I’m hoping I can teach the next generation to make healthier choices and to live healthier lives.
