as told by Vicki Opfer
Why is it so important to use natural products every day?
The following is a true story told to me by a young mother who knew that I am a teacher of natural healing and asked me to share her story in the hopes that others can benefit from it:
Brittany woke up one night, at 1:00 am and threw up in her bed. Her mother changed her sheets, and put her back to bed, thinking, "I'll probably have to keep her home from school tomorrow." But the next morning, Brittany appeared to be fine, and went to school.
The next night, at 1:00 am, Brittany threw up in her bed again. Her mom changed the sheets; put her back to bed, and thought, "She really IS sick." Next morning, Brittany was fine again, and went on to school.
Next night, at 1:00 am, Brittany threw up in her bed. Her mom was becoming very concerned. So the next morning, even though Brittany seemed fine, her mom kept her home from school, and took her to the doctor, who could find nothing wrong with her.
Every night, at about 1:00 am, Brittany threw up in her bed, and by morning, she always seemed to be OK.
Her mom began taking her from doctor to doctor, but no one was able to figure out why she was vomiting. She went through extensive testing, and nothing showed up. Several weeks went by, and the doctors were talking about "exploratory surgery" to go into her body and see if there was any obvious reason for these episodes. They were also looking at psychological reasons why Brittany may be getting sick every night. Everyone was very concerned for Brittany.
One morning, Brittany's mother woke up, got the kids off for school;took her shower, and at 1:00 pm in the afternoon, she felt like she was going to throw up. "Oh my gosh" she thought, "Now I've got it, and I'm 12 hours off!" Then she began to think. The only thing she had done differently that day was that she had run out of her own shampoo, and had borrowed Brittany's.
Then she thought back. They had received a free sample of a shampoo in the mail, and Brittany had loved it so much, she had bought her a large bottle, the very next day. It was about that time that Brittany began to throw up at night. She would take her bath every night at 8PM, washing her hair with this shampoo, and by 1AM she was throwing up in her bed. On the day of her important discovery, she (the mom) had taken her shower at 8:00 am, and by 1:00 pm, she felt like she would throw up.
Brittany’s mom threw away the shampoo. She went to the health food store, and bought an "all natural" shampoo. (Which we now know may or may not be all natural - even if it's from a health food store.)
The good news is that after her mother bought the natural shampoo, Brittany no longer threw up in her bed.
I have two questions:
1. What would have happened to Brittany, by well-meaning medical professionals, if her mom had not figured this out?
2. How many other Brittany's are there out there and how many of us are being affected, in some way, by synthetic chemicals in our personal care products, cleaning products, or processed foods, without knowing what is causing the problems?

Please tell people about Young Living. You could be saving a life... now or in the future...
If you take drugs and use products with toxins in them you are contributing to water pollution.
Runoff from toxic chemicals and Big Pharma's drugs has now reached the point where it's causing trans-gender fish to appear in the wild.
This is the same water used in agricultural irrigation, ranch animal operations and even municipal water supplies. (Your children could be drinking the same stuff right now...)
Male fish now exhibiting female traits due to toxic chemicals and pharma runoff
Sunday, September 12, 2010 by: David Gutierrez, staff writer
(NaturalNews) More than 80 percent of male bass in the Potomac River on the U.S. Atlantic coast are producing eggs or showing other female traits, the nonprofit Potomac Conservancy has warned, in a call for more research into the causes of intersex fish.
In a recent U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) report, intersex fish were found in a third of all 111 sites tested across the United States, including in major waterways such as the Mississippi River and the Rio Grande. The phenomenon occurred in 16 different species, but was most common in male smallmouth and largemouth bass.
Researchers agree that the phenomenon is almost certainly caused by the presence of pollutants in the water, including endocrine- (hormone) disrupting chemicals and the residue of pharmaceutical products.
"We have not been able to identify one particular chemical or one particular source," said USGS biologist Vicki Blazer. "We are still trying to get a handle on what chemicals are important."
Among the chemicals likely to be contributing to the problem, Blazer cited birth control pills and other hormone-containing drugs, antibacterial products including tissues, personal care products (especially those containing fragrances), flame retardants, pesticides and fertilizers.
"In fertilizer [and pesticides] there's natural estrogen and testosterone and other things ... so if we can hopefully pinpoint some of those mixtures or individual chemicals that then perhaps we could manage better," Blazer said.
It has been hard to narrow down the list of major contributors, however. For example, Blazer tested fish up- and downstream of sewage treatment plants to see if the factories might be major sources of endocrine-disrupting pollutants. She found no difference in rates of sexual abnormalities.
The Potomac Conservancy has called for more research into the problem.
"We've got to figure out what the heck is going on here," said the group's president, Hedrick Belin. "And we've got to figure it out sooner rather than later because it's clear the longer this mystery continues it's only going to lead to bad things yet to be discovered."
Because the hormonal systems of all vertebrates are strikingly similar, anything that has an impact on fish living in water is likely to have an effect on humans drinking it, as well. Yet figuring out the specific effects of tainted water on people may prove difficult.
"Because fish, of course, are in the water all the time," Blazer said. "But what's in your drinking water, what you might be exposed to through skin and food and everything else, is another issue for people."
Even if researchers eventually figure out which chemicals are the major contributors to sexual deformity in fish, that may shed little light on the question.
"It's going to be a lot harder to get to how these chemicals affect people because of course you can't experiment on people," Blazer said.
Approximately 4.5 million residents of the Washington D.C. area get their drinking water from the Potomac.
According to the Potomac Conservancy, individuals can help reduce watershed pollution in part by making more careful purchasing decisions. Consumers should reduce their use of toxic chemicals such as pesticides, and look for more natural cosmetics and other products.
"The chemicals that are in personal care products such as some of the antimicrobials, fragrances, are endocrine disruptors," said Blazer. "So being smart about the kinds of products you're buying -- because they are available in things that are fragrance-free, antimicrobial-free, things like that -- are things that individuals can do."
Conservancy supporter Rep. James P. Moran of Virginia has urged people to always take old or unused drugs back to a pharmacy for disposal.
"Don't flush pharmaceuticals down the toilet," he said. "They don't disappear when you flush them."
The Potomac Conservancy is also working on a campaign to get pharmaceutical technologies to dispose of drugs more safely, and calling for better water filtration technology.
"We need to get these toxins out of our river water," Belin said.
WARNING: The hormonal life of your children could be at risk as well. An NRDC Warning shows how the phthalates spewing out of air fresheners could be putting your children, especially boys at risk. There are many studies that have come out regarding the dangers of phthalates as well.
WARNING 2: Women are also likely damaging themselves when they buy air fresheners and cleaning products according to the results of one study which found double the breast cancer risk from use of such products.
These warnings have continued…. yet, this air freshener business has grown to $1.72 billion with excellent marketing so consumers overlook the hidden ingredients even though the news is warning consumers.
The problem is…..we, as consumers, have become dulled. We aren’t taking the time to consider the consumer issues and we TRUST that every product in the grocery store or health food store is just fine when it really isn’t.
But again, there is STILL a concern. These harmful chemicals are found in common air freshener products and many common household products.
