Hello, I’m JuneMary and my passion is helping people to Live Clean and enjoy a longer, healthier life.
(The following is in addition to the video.)
One major stumbling block to a healthy life is the many harmful and questionable chemicals in products we use on a daily basis, such as Bathroom products, as is shown by research dating as far back as 1989 when the US Dept of Occupational Safety and Health analysed 2,983 chemicals used in personal care products such as toothpaste, bubble bath, cosmetics etc.
884 were toxic.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Of these:-
778 were acutely toxic
146 were carcinogenic
218 caused reproductive complications
314 caused biological mutations
376 caused eye and skin irritation
The number of chemicals used in everyday products increases yearly and most chemicals remain untested by Regulatory Bodies
Experiences like … never feeling 100%, being tired all the time, always catching something, not sleeping properly, indigestion, skin problems … are early indications that the body is under attack!
My improved health shows that by adopting the Live Clean philosophy, we can change this so come with me on this journey of Renewed Health by joining my Renewed Health Community on FB and see how you too could have the benefits we all want.
In this gloomy, dark season of the year many of us suffer from Depression – but the News is not all gloomy!!
To say Depression is ALL “in the Mind” is not exactly true because the Mind is “housed” in the brain — a physical organ which, like the rest of the body, needs nutrients in order to function correctly. (I know this because I was Clinically Depressed).
When nutrients are lacking, brain functions are vulnerable to many stresses.
I think you’ll find this article very interesting and helpful in avoiding Depression!
12 Lifestyle Factors That Make You Feel Depressed

“Many clients come to me believing there is “something wrong” with them. They believe they’re fundamentally flawed, or they’re making a last-ditch attempt at life, often with plans to end theirs if things don’t improve. However, more often than not, the root of their depression is not a biochemical imbalance or a life-sentence. Rather, it’s a result of one or more of the following:
Of all the research out there, social connection is one of the most proven ways to prevent and cure depression. However, the problem is that depression will often tell us we’re no fun and nobody wants to hang out with us, leading us back to isolation. Acknowledge that the thought does not serve you and, given your current state, and reach out. Join a Meetup group, a team, or call an old friend.
Ever been through a breakup, lost a job, experienced the loss of a family member or pet, or found yourself out of school for the first time? All of these situations are thick with grief. If you’ve experienced a major transition or loss in the past year (or longer if you’ve suppressed your grief), chances are your depression might be tied to that. Grief mimics depression, so feeling unmotivated, low, irritable, disinterested in things you used to enjoy, disconnected, unable to focus, and experiencing disturbances in your sleep and diet are likely related to your adjustment to the transition or loss.
Ever noticed how much more fragile and lethargic you are after a bad sleep? Exhaustion affects our mood, our energy levels, and our cognitive functioning. The problem is, depression can cause sleep disturbances, so it can become a vicious cycle. Speak with your therapist about ensuring proper sleep hygiene, learning cognitive behavioral strategies for managing insomnia, and, if you believe you might have a sleep disorder, consider getting a referral to a sleep specialist. Some sleep disorders are highly-correlated with depression.
4. Missing meaning
From an existential perspective, we require meaning in our lives for happiness. According to Viktor Frankl, we can find this meaning through work, relationships (romantic and otherwise), helping others, learning, creative endeavors (e.g. writing, music, art/design), and spirituality, to name a few. If you’re in a career you despise, or feel “lost” in life, depression has likely come about to tell you that the way you’re living your life does not align with your values and desires. Take it as a positive sign that change needs to happen, and consider how your life would look if you felt fulfilled in some (or all) of the aforementioned areas.
5. A critical inner voice
Imagine how worthless you’d feel if you had a verbally-abusive friend, partner, or parent beside you at all times. Well, this is how it is for many people who are highly self-critical. Pay attention to your internal voice. What’s its flavor? If you find you’re saying things to yourself that you would never say to a friend, it’s time to make a change. Several studies have shown that learning self-compassion can be an effective intervention in treating depression. Therapy can be a wonderful place to learn this language of healthy striving.
6. A lack of exercise
Along with social connection, exercise is another variable that is highly supported in its relationship to depression. There’s no need to join a CrossFit gym or to sign up for a marathon (although you can do that, too), but you’re likely to notice a difference in your mood from doing 20 minutes of yoga on your lunch hour, or getting out for a walk around the block after work. No time? Combine it with #1 and ask a friend to go for a walk.
7. Not enough nature
Recently, several studies have supported the benefits of “ecotherapy” or “green therapy” in treating depression. It fosters mindfulness and feelings of calm. When’s the last time you got outside and were surrounded by green? Try to fit this into your daily routine—even if it’s for only five minutes! If you live in a big city, make a point to hit up a park or shoreline.
8. Poor diet
More and more research is emerging that suggests nutrient deficiencies and food allergies are linked to depression. For example, studies have shown vitamins B and D are negatively correlated with depressed mood, while gluten is positively correlated (in those who suffer from intolerance). Every individual is different, but getting a blood test and seeing a naturopath, dietician, or holistic nutritionist might benefit you.
Studies have shown that chronic stress can lead to depression. Some stress is good, but when it outweighs coping, it might be a factor in why you’re feeling depressed. If you can’t cut some of your responsibilities, consider assessing where the expectations you feel are coming from (i.e. someone else, or yourself), and take some of the pressure off. Permit yourself to lower your expectations for performance, make mistakes, quit, and ask for help. In other words, stop treating yourself like a machine and let yourself be a human being.
10. All work & no play
Many people are under the (false) impression that once we reach adulthood we no longer need or deserve “fun.” Or that we’re only allowed to have “fun” once our work is done. Well, given the fact that there will ALWAYS be something more to do—another bill to pay, another project to complete, or another load of laundry to do—chances are you’re setting yourself up for a life that’s not very enjoyable. Allow yourself to carve some time out of your daily schedule to do something you enjoy. This could be an activity, or it could be lying on the couch watching Netflix.
11. Imbalanced hormones
Imbalances or deficiencies in estrogen, progesterone, and cortisol are all correlated with depression. Consider checking out these areas to ensure the depression you’re experiencing is not related to one of these!
12. Not dealing with emotions
We have primary and secondary feelings. Primary feelings are the ones that we feel at the core—for example, sadness or anger, anxiety or loneliness. Secondary feelings what we feel when we judge ourselves for having the primary feelings. Imagine you’re feeling depressed, but then you beat yourself up for feeling depressed and tell yourself you’re broken and need to stop feeling depressed. Now you’re not just feeling depressed; you’re also feeling shameful, pressured, and frustrated. By giving yourself permission to feel the feelings that come up (whatever they may be) with compassion and without judgement, you may notice a weight lifted off your shoulders.”
I’m definitely benefitting because, despite my age, my health is getting better and better. 🙂
Do I hear the question, “Well what is this Live Clean Revolution”??
Well it’s simple really because it’s about changing our daily use products which are made from harsh chemicals such as those which cause cancer, disrupt our hormones, (ie “gender benders”), cause birth defects, and, in general, poison us so that our bodies become sick.
These toxic chemicals also go down the sink and toilet, damaging the environment and the creatures who live there.
We recognise that we must make changes because if we destroy our bodies and our planet—-
“Where will we and our descendants live??”
Live Clean is about people who believe in better products, and the positive change that switching to a clean-label lifestyle creates.
Living Clean means removing controversial ingredients from your life and seeing better health and improved wellbeing as a result.
From beginning to end, our goal is to achieve ethical sourcing, zero animal testing, safe and non-toxic/BPA-free containers, environmentally friendly recyclable packaging,
We’ve taken a stance against potentially harmful ingredients: GMO-free formulation, no Ethoxylates, no PEGS, SLS, Phthalates, no Parabens or other controversial chemicals. Our formulas are pure, reliable and high-performing. It’s in our roots; it’s ingrained in who we are. For more than 30 years we’ve been concerned about the environment and our ecosystem, so you can feel better about your role in the effort to preserve our planet.
We enable people to change to safe products, which are high performance and affordable, and to have nutritional products which provide nutrients, easily absorbed and used, which are no longer in our food — ie in meat, vegetables and fruit — the lack of which are also at the root of the metabolic diseases affecting people today.
Please note there are 2 sets of instructions depending on YOUR state of health.
For General Health.
First tub or when taking anti-biotics:- Take 2 twice a day ( on an empty stomach first thing in the morning and last thing at night because at those times you are producing practically no stomach acid.)
Thereafter, take 1 twice a day. (or you can take 2 at bedtime)
We need to keep these beneficial bacteria topped up because white flour and the sugar in our modern diet destroys them. Up to 60 years ago we topped them up every day without realising it because we ate food which was preserved naturally by fermentation and we did not eat processed foods nor was our food sterilised by radiation and sprayed with pesticides and herbicides which all kill the micro-organisms.
For People with Digestive System Problems.
They are powerful and as they kill off the “bad guys” you can get what’s called a “die off reaction” which can make you feel a bit “off” …so ………
Week 1 – take 1 ProBiotic at bedtime for a week
Week 2 – then add 1 when you wake (2 a day)
Week 3 – then add 1 at bedtime (3 a day)
Week 4 – then add 1 when you wake. (4 a day)
Week 5 onwards – drop down to either 1 a.m. and 1 p.m. or 2 at bedtime.
Natasha says these are the best times — Not with food — and DO NOT put them in the fridge because they are dried and asleep and if they go in and out of the fridge condensation wakes them up and they are no use ‘cos they die in the capsule. She invented this Advance ProBiotic so I go with what she says. I keep mine on my bedside table.
Ladies. If you have an outbreak of Thrush, don’t worry, it’s your body getting rid of the Candida that’s inside. It’s unpleasant but it will go away.
With natural supplements it takes about 3 months to have a real effect on the body.
A good partner to take with Protozymes is Mineral Solutions which provides the full spectrum of plant bio-available minerals, amino acids and anti-oxidants.
The following information is supplied by Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride, a medical doctor with post graduate degrees in neurology and nutrition. She is the founder and senior partner of the Cambridge Nutrition Clinic, specialising in digestion and immune system disorders in adults and children. Her work has achieved international acclaim with lectures in Europe, the United States and Australia and the publication of her book ‘Gut and Psychology Syndrome’. She has pioneered the development and use of probiotics and is responsible for the formulation of the Modere Advanced ProBiotic “Protozymes”.
We know we have bacteria inside our digestive tract – an adult on average carries 2k of bacteria and there are actually more cells, more genetic material, in our digestive system than in our entire body. They are a highly important part of our human physiology that we cannot live without. The number of functions that our gut flora fulfils play so many vital roles not just in the digestive tract but in the rest of the body. Here are just a few of the most important functions.
The whole surface of the digestive system is covered by bacteria and if these bacteria are the right ones, the beneficial bacteria, if they predominate there (ratio 80:20), then they become the housekeepers of our digestive system; they are our protectors from all sorts of invaders, bacteria, parasites, fungi, toxins that come with food and drink and enter our digestive system all the time.
At the same time they convert the food that comes along into a whole host of nourishing substances for the gut lining itself, orchestrating the whole cell regeneration process in the gut wall. Cells that line the gut only live a few days; they are born, fulfil their function then die. If the beneficial bacteria are not there, this process goes wrong; the cells mutate, the cells change so that they cannot fulfil their function of the digestion and absorption of food and they can turn cancerous. If you have a good level of beneficial bacteria in your digestive system, they will stop any cancer formation because these 2 things, cancer and good solid gut flora, cannot live together.
Besides ensuring that the gut is in a good shape to digest and absorb our food, the beneficial bacteria in our gut actively take part in digestion and absorption by producing every enzyme under the sun for digesting proteins, carbohydrates and fats and they produce substances that transport nutrition through the gut wall into your blood stream.
That is why people who have damaged gut flora, or gut flora which is not at an optimum, cannot digest and absorb a lot of food or supplements and so much of it simply passes straight through the body and out!
Apart from ensuring appropriate absorption and digestion of food, these bacteria actively synthesize a whole host of nutrients that we cannot live without – B1 B2 B3 B5 B6 B12, Vit.K, Biotin, Amino acids and many other nutritious substances. They synthesize these all of the time. Why? ……………
because most of the substances are water soluble and don’t stay in the body long, so even if we have plenty of them in our food and have supplements that provide us with them, there will be times during the day when we will be deficient in these substances.
Nature has always found a perfect solution to this problem – provided us with our own little factory, our digestive system which constantly produces these substances and constantly releases them into our blood stream to provide us with these substances, every second, every moment, every day of our life.
Protection from invaders, plus immune system modulation, are vitally important functions of our gut flora. According to different researchers, from 83-85% of our immunity is located in the gut wall so you can see the gut wall is one of the major immune organs in our body. Gut flora which lives inside plays a crucial role in the appropriate functioning of the immune system ie. they determine how we react to substances like pollen, dust, chemicals etc — whether they are neutralised and expelled or whether we have an allergic reaction such as:- food intolerances, eczema, asthma, hay fever………
Our gut flora plays a major part in detoxofication. Beneficial bacteria can collect pretty much anything – aluminium, lead, mercury from amalgam fillings, or vaccinations in children, chemicals in foods, flame retardants from our carpets, paint from our doors, anything that gets into our digestive tract and any sort of carcinogen produced as by products of the normal digestive process. Beneficial bacteria will grab them, collate them, neutralise most of them and they will remove them from our body. So having solid gut flora is very important to protect ourselves from these things.
Having the right bacteria inhabiting our gut is not only desirable but vital!
Why do I believe the best pro-biotic supplement is Protozymes??
Since 2003 there have been large numbers of clinical trials on probiotics (77 in 2004 alone).
800 strains have been identified, 400 of which have been closely studied and numbered 1 to 400 , number 1 being the most beneficial to our health.
Dr. Campbell-McBride chose numbers 1 to 5 for her Advanced ProBiotic “Protozymes” and added Saccharomyces Boulardii, the probiotic yeast which kills the pathogenic yeast Candida Albicans (Thrush). I don’t know of another probiotic supplement which can kill Candida.
Where this information comes from and why we should avoid products which contain them.
The skin is the quickest route for absorption of chemicals into the bloodstream – undiluted – hence nicotine and HRT patches.
CAP (Consumer’s Association of Penang – Malaysia) have published a booklet detailing the findings of their ground-breaking study to reveal “Cancer-Causing chemicals in Cosmetics and Daily Use Products”
CAP’s study was prompted by a 496% increase in the number of reported cancer cases which rose from 6,254 in 1970 to 37,294 in 1996 – during which time Malasian society was becoming “modernised” in the mould of Western Societies. Their death rate from cancer had risen to match ours in the UK – 103 a day!
Below are some of the chemicals they named: (You will find a more complete list here https://www.facebook.com/groups/1689356897948626/files/ )
Sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS)
– It is a mutagen (it can alter the DNA). Found in toothpaste, body & facial washes. Made from coconut oil – industrial degreaser for engines and garage floors. It denatures protein so it damages the mucosal lining of the mouth and vagina making them susceptible to infections – ulcers, urinary tract, bladder & kidney infections
Sodium laureth sulphate (SLES)
SLES was used to make Agent Orange to defoliate the trees during the Vietnam war and large numbers of veterans have died or are dying from various kinds of cancer.
It is also found in children’s bubble bath as it creates more bubbles. It is even more dangerous than SLS. Research has shown that it prevents proper development of the eyes in young mammals and causes cataracts in older people.
Found in baby wipes and moisturisers, it is also the main ingredient in brake fluid and anti-freeze. It sits on the skin’s surface producing the “plastic bag” effect –the skin cannot respire–but it feels smooth and healthy. It is, in fact, drawing water from up from the living cells, thus damaging them.
Found in moisturisers. (Alias Petroleum, Petrolatum, Paraffin, Paraffin Oil, Parafinium Liquidium)
Found in toothpaste. Sodium Monofluorophosphate, better known as Sodium Fluoride is used to make rat poison and is also used as an insecticide for ants and cockroaches.
This is a waste product from the phosphate fertilizer industry, a poison similar to cyanide, known to cause very dense brittle bones and dental fluorosis – the first visible sign of fluoride poisoning.
It is so corrosive that it is transported in glass-lined tankers.
A 1997 survey found that the average person who brushes his/her teeth with a pea-sized amount of fluoridated toothpaste ingests between 0.3 and 0.4mg of fluoride each time they brush – almost half our daily tolerable limit of fluoride.
It is also added to drinking water and school milk in certain areas of the UK.
It is also called fluorosilicic acid.
See the National Pure Water Association website for more details: www.npwa.org.uk
Found in mouthwashes. Derived from coal tar. This caused bladder cancer in animal studies and research shows that it promotes the cancer-causing effects of other carcinogens. It is used as an artificial sweetener and can also be found in processed foods.
Type of alcohol from petroleum. Mouthwashes typically contain higher concentrations of alcohol than beer and wine. An alcohol content of 25% has been implicated in mouth, tongue and throat cancers. It has a similar effect on mouth tissues as SLS.
Used to embalm the dead.
Found in deodorant, shampoo, mouthwash, toothpaste, nail polish, aftershave, perfume. Causes cancer in animals and suspected of causing it in humans.
In all anti-perspirants. They block the sweat glands. (A bad idea as it traps toxins inside the body because the lymph can’t move either so it is implicated in breast cancer). Linked to brain disorders such as dementia, Alzheimer’s, behaviour abnormalities, impaired poor memory, impaired visual-motor co-ordination.
Talcum powder (Talc)
Baby Powder, cosmetics. It is the same molecular structure as asbestos. Causes cancer. Keep away from female genital area. Do not breathe it in.
