Simple solutions are always considered irrelevant and inconsequential – even when they are true. ~Chris Tiegreen

You will need to become a label detective in this day and age if you, your family and your pets are to be well. Here are just a sampling of ingredients we make certain are never in our own product choices:
- Sodium Lauryl Sulfate – found in most haircare, deodorants, toothpastes, pet grooming products, etc.
- Propylene glycol – (1% different than anti-freeze) is found not only in all of the above products, but also in many food products such as ice cream, used as a softener. It is certainly not something anyone or anything should be ingesting through the mouth or their skin. Remember skin is the largest organ and absorbs into the body (both human and animal) approximately 60% or greater of what is applied to it.
- Aluminum chlorhydrate – Aluminum is linked to severe motor neuron, muscle and brain damage, to Crohn’s disease, Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia in the elderly as well as to Autistic Spectrum Disorders in the young and to vaccine-linked cancers in pets. Aluminum in any of its many forms ought to not be in any of these products but it is commonly found in deodorants.
What about the brain? What do all these toxins do to the brain (and of course that means your mind as well)?
One of the most commonly used household products happens to also be one of the most toxic: bleach. It is one of the most recommended for burns as well as disinfecting kennels, homes, etc. This product is a form of chlorine and was also used as a form of weaponry during wartime.
Dissonance – Harsh, discordant, and lack of harmony. Also a chord that sounds incomplete until it resolves itself on a harmonious chord.
