My Journey with Clean Products
Since 2009, I’ve struggled with ulcerative colitis before truly figuring out what triggered flares, and how to heal with food and lifestyle changes. I have always considered myself a healthy and informed person, but it wasn’t until I was faced with an autoimmune disease at 21 years old, that I knew absolutely nothing about that I realized something had to change. Enter my journey with clean products! I had changed my diet. But, I knew environmental factors are triggers for autoimmunity–so cleaning up everything I could control was a constant goal of mine. I became obsessed with it. Because, you can’t unknow something.
Once I had learned the toxins I had innocently been exposing myself to on a DAILY basis were terrible for my overall health and wellness, things had to change all around, it became my mission. I was so confused, mad, and eager for change. How could companies be allowed to sell products that are harmful to us?!

Whoa, did it deliver the goods. Seriously, I took notes on every chapter, and know I will be referring to it often. It’s a very easy and quick read with VERY practical + achievable advice. Check it out here.
