Many of you are already aware that when you shower or bathe you are being exposed to chlorine, which is a caustic chemical and has health challenges associated with continued exposure.

Chlorine is put into the municipal water sources to kill pathogens for disease prevention. Good intentions with some negative side affects most people are not aware of. Chlorine is particularly problematic for the thyroid gland (involved in temperature control, metabolism, circulation, moods, etc., etc.), as well as the entire glandular system.

After birth control pills, medications for hypothyroidism (Synthroid, Levoxyl, Armour Thyroid) are the most prescribed class of medications to the citizens of the United States. The two main reasons for this are: lack of adequate minerals, particularly water soluble minerals important for proper thyroid function, primarily due to soil depletion and poor dietary choices; the second reason is the ongoing negative influence chlorine has, due to showers and baths without de-chlorinating filters, over a period years that turn into decades.

Depending on how hot and how long a person takes a shower for, it can be the equivalent of drinking 2-5 glasses of chlorinated tap water per shower. Stepping into a shower is like stepping into a gas chamber! Chlorinated steam and vapor in shower water more easily works into open pores and nasal passages.

It is so easy and inexpensive to get rid of 99% of the chlorine from showers when you install an in-line shower cartridge. Bath balls are also available for those that prefer bathing or have young children that bathe instead of shower.

Replaceable shower filters should be a consideration for every family if no whole house filter is in place. Herbs & More in Encinitas, Ca., has carried de-chlorinating shower filters and bath balls since 1998. Feel free to order today or contact us for more information.
