As a mother and wife, it has been an extreme importance to provide a healthy life to those I love. Until recently I believed I was doing a great job by being mindful of nutrition, being aware of toxic products and making conscious decisions about medical interventions. It seemed simple because it was the lifestyle I was fortunate to grow up with, though something changed to make me understand there is more I can do to improve the environment I am raising my child in.
When my dad was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in September 2015, I watched his condition deteriorate and felt the confusion, frustration and fear involved with cancer. He was the only person in our family to ever receive a cancer diagnosis and I thought he was doing everything “right” to avoid getting cancer. He was one who rarely got sick, religiously took vitamins, stayed active, maintained a healthy weight, often ate a vegetarian diet and stopped using the microwave because it zapped nutrients from foods. Dad had never been hospitalized for anything ever, I wrongly assumed he would be safe from this type of disease. Like most cancers, myeloma doesn’t have a direct cause provided with the diagnosis. My dad received a double major in chemistry and biology, then made his professional career working in the chemical industry. Despite the doctor’s hesitation to name a cause, it’s easy to see some correlation in how his cancer likely developed.
About the same time of the diagnosis, a friend contacted me about Norwex and emphasized how important this product could be in his home. I declined hosting a party or learning more about the products as we were all engrossed in treatments, symptom management and appeasing his appetite. At the end of March 2016, my dad passed and was finally at peace from the pain.
In the cycle of grief, I consider what we could have done different, how I could have helped more or what might have changed his outcome. There are many things I wish could have been different for my dad and because I can’t change what happened with him, I am propelled to try to reduce the chances of anyone else suffering in the same way.
In every home there are known cancer causing agents; environmental toxins we clean with, put on our body, ingest and breathe on a regular basis. Because they have commercials and are available to buy in stores, it’s normal to believe they are safe. Alarmingly, of the 80,000 new chemicals which have been introduced to our market in the last fifty years, less than 200 have actually been tested for safety. Many we use on a regular basis in the United States have been banned across Europe. The statistics are shocking and really show consumers are not protected. Norwex can provide the same or better standards of clean and can do so with only water and a lot less time. Don’t believe me? I’d be happy to prove it and help you create a safe, chemical free environment in your home. While I cannot change the past, I am confident in my choice to live life on purpose now and share the microfiber magic with those I love.
The very best way to experience this safe clean and do it for free is by hosting a party. Norwex is an extremely generous company by spoiling a hostess with free gifts just for bringing friends together to learn about the products. Please check out my website, contact me about hosting a party and share with those you love and wish to protect.
