It looks like a multi-level marketing deal to me. Something along the lines of Amway. Not horrible, but probably quite expensive.

If you want to reduce your family's chances of getting cancer (and many other complications) you can do a number of things that will cost you little to nothing, instead of having to buy expensive, special products.

That said, my husband and I do buy a few special organic, handmade, or minimally chemical products. I'll mention a few of my favorites but, first, take a look at this article about baking soda: http://www.dirtdoctor.com/organic/garde ... n/id/2353/

Orange oil (d-limonene) is also a good choice to use as a non-toxic cleaner, as well as other uses:
http://www.dirtdoctor.com/organic/garde ... n/id/1378/

** You can even make your own orange oil. I also make grapefruit oil to use in insect sprays for the veggie garden.

This one about preservatives commonly found in MANY pre-packaged foods: http://www.dirtdoctor.com/organic/garde ... n/id/3800/

One major way to reduce risk of cancer, as well as other neurological and behavorial diseases and conditions is to each fresh or fresh frozen foods. Avoiding precooked meals, prepackaged foods, and fast or carryout foods will reduce your risk in a huge way. AND everyone will feel a lot better, too. :D

I got the articles above the the Natural Organic Library on this site: http://www.dirtdoctor.com/organic/garden/faq/. Just do some reading and you should be able to easily come up with a plan to radically decrease the toxins and chemicals in your home and food without spending a fortune doing it.

Gotta run for now, but I'll post later tonight on this same thread with a couple sources for some good products we use, like, and feel confident recommending to others.

Hope that helps!

Ok, I'm back. Here's a few of our recommendations on getting healthier and using less chemicals and additives:

Handmade soaps, shampoo bars, and other items.
We use the Neem and Tea Tree Shampoo Bar.
http://www.chagrinvalleysoapandcraft.com/

Some of the Burt's Bees products. Yes, they are a little more expensive than, say, Ivory Soap, but I have extremely sensitive skin and the body wash and body lotions have been wonderful. You can get them at discount prices at: http://www.vitacost.com/

Also great for removing pesticide residue from fruits and vegetables is this product from Environne: http://www.environne.com/products.php

When I use it on fruits (like oranges) that come from California -- toxic pesticide haven -- I can actually smell it as the Environne breaks the toxins down. Sometimes my hands even sting from the pesticide until I have rinsed it all off. Ugh!

If you're interested in taking quality supplements, here are a couple companies and products that we have taken and have seen remarkable results in our health and energy (when combined with quality, fresh foods and lots of exercise - GARDENING! :lol:)

We've bought Extend Core (a multivitamin) from:
http://www.vrp.com/dispatcher?search=multivitamin

We use Magnesium with SRT from:
http://www.jigsawhealth.com/

**One note about magnesium. You must take a magnesium supplement if you drink/use distilled water (and we do). Using a distiller is another good way to avoid chemicals in your city water supply.

Again, I hope that helps! And good for you for deciding to make changes in your home and diet.
Have fun getting healthier!

We use Melaleuca products and love them! If you haven't already become a customer, I highly recommend them. There are many Multi-level Marketing companies out there that have great products, but Melaleuca is set up a little differently. So, I hope you at least give them a try. We've been customers for 6 or 7 years.

I would like some more information on the grapefruit oil you make for insect sprays, love my garden! What kind of insects does it help with and what is your recipe?

Thanks!
Tatia
