This week we will talk about the value of products made without the use of chemical pesticides, fertilisers, growth enhancers, or feed additives. Yes, you got it – it’s Organic Week! ✔💯
What are some of the advantages of going organic?

Since we’re talking about “going organic” this week, let’s pause and take a look at some of the studies that reveal some of the nastiest foods that uptake pesticides the most.
📌 The analysis, based on produce samples tested by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, found that strawberries and spinach contained the highest amounts of pesticide residues.

It’s always best to be aware. Eat better, do better for your body! 💪
“No, I’m looking for the pain now.” 😅
Happiness can’t seem to be contained by this beloved client since sciatica pain was gone in 5 to 10 minutes! 😲 While most sciatica cases resolve within a few weeks, this one was dealt with in an instant.
“Please eat better for yourself. It will do your body massive favors in the long run. We do not need all these chemicals in our food. We just don’t.”
This should always be a given. Our body deserves the best and we can only do so by making sure we are cautious with what we put into it. Have some thought about it now, and your body will thank you later. 💚💙
Difficult? Yes! But definitely doable. 💪
Let’s not wait for our body to be completely poisoned by what we consume.
Be well-rounded, better informed, and open-minded to a healthier selection that should be within reach. 😉🤗
