With the decrease in green house gas emissions the earth is taking an opportunity to detoxify and cleanse herself of toxins. The skies clear and scientists report the level of toxicity in the atmosphere is less than since World War II.
There are other positive signs that lawmakers and government officials are beginning to connect the dots on the need for cleaner air.
New research published int the New York times, "Links air pollution to higher death rates."
The New York Times reported, “Oil Companies Are Collapsing, but Wind and Solar Energy Keep Growing." In fact in the first quarter of 2020 it was reported that renewable energy sources for the first time exceeded those of fossil fuels.
Climate advocates are making the case that we can invest in renewable energy, to ward off an even more dangerous crisis down the line.
Naysayers warn that, “Decarbonizing will cost trillions of dollars.”
However, the Rolling Stone reports that, “The Green New Deal is Cheap, Actually,” considering the alternative. Saying, “It’s an investment that will have big returns - for the economy and the environment.”
There is the start of a push towards making pollution and climate change a scientific matter rather than a political one which it has been.
Supporting the body to do its job
The body is continually detoxifying and cleansing itself of toxins. The Master Cleanser Drink supports the body to do its routine job of cleansing and healing itself by eliminating sources of toxins, as well as adding the astringent cleansing action of fresh squeezed lemon juice to the process.
The basic Master Cleanser recipe is simply a combination of freshly squeezed lemon juice, red cayenne pepper, and maple syrup combined in pure fresh water.
Benefits may include support for:
- Cleansing your liver, gall bladder, kidneys, digestive and elimination systems.
- Eliminating cellular waste and relieving congestion in the areas surrounding your muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments and other connective tissues.
- Dissolving and eliminating toxins, cellular debris, and lymphatic congestion from your body.
- Purifying your blood and enhancing its flow through your circulatory system.
- Purifying all of your digestive organs and systems, as well your cells, glands, organs, and ducts.
Relieving congestion and irritating pressure on your nerve, lymph, and circulatory systems.
Fasting, or intermittent fasting, on the Master Cleanser for 1-2 days a month while following a regimen of a cleansing and detoxifying diet (if doing an intermittent fast) and essential oils can help support renewal of your body and mind.
