Within the past couple years, I started making it a must to read ingredients on all my products that I consume, or even those I use to clean or apply to my body. The reason being, is that I started to have more and more allergies, so to prevent my breakouts and health complications, I made this a habit.
To be quite honest, I knew about a third of the ingredients that I read on labels. This was not only frustrating, but scary to think that I was eating things that I couldn't even pronounce. I started having to google almost all ingredients, some names where just the scientific name and completely safe. The others had me baffled at the things I was allowing myself to consume. Because of this, its been my mission to find the best products that are as clean as possible and compatible for my blood/ body type. Another thing, some natural products contain natural preservatives, such as sulfates...which I am extremely allergic too! So always do your research on your products. Just because it something says natural, it may not be compatible with you.
Don't get me wrong, once in a while I allow myself to cheat on the things I cannot pronounce because of the simple answer, is that they are tasty. Most of the time, I'd say about 80-90% I stick to clean eating, so that I am not putting my organs and body through so much stress. For myself, I notice that the cleaner I eat, meaning the least amount of ingredients or the most natural ingredients, the more clearer my mind is, the less inflammation I have and overall just the happiest mood I'm in.
