Warning Signs That Your Lifestyle Could Be Putting You at Risk for Deadly Diseases | Deon Hall Garriques

Most of us live our lives doing the best we can to stay fit and healthy. 

But despite our best efforts, some things are not within our control. 

However, with some consciousness and awareness, we can take steps to mitigate certain risks and protect ourselves from harm. 

What the heck are you talking about Deon? 

TOXINS! Yes, toxins. 

We are surrounded by toxins in our daily lives and some are difficult to avoid. 

Research shows that today, we are exposed to more environmental toxins in one day than our grandparents were in an entire lifetime.

When toxins enter your body, their impact is often not immediate, it could take some time as it build up before it starts to impact your health, they grow steadily under the body’s surface and create a tremendous amount of stress on your system and organs. 

Toxins are harmful substances found in the environment, food, cosmetics, household cleaning products, furniture, etc.

When toxins get into our bodies, they can disrupt our endocrine system, and hormones and wreak havoc on our health, which can also contribute to various diseases later in life (e.g. cancer, auto-immune, etc.).

Toxins build up in your body from the foods you eat, water you drink, and other environmental toxins (e.g., insecticides, BPA, phthalates, etc.) that clog your cells and wreak havoc on your thyroid. 

Most toxins are structurally similar to thyroid hormones and as a result, they trick your master fat-burning gland into accumulating more toxins, which creates even more hormonal imbalances.

When you take in more toxins than you can eliminate either with food or lifestyle, they create waste that your body cannot use and are stored in your cells and tissues. 

This leads to fat storage and weight gain as the fat cells cannot flow into your bloodstream to be used for fuel.


Cells are vital to all life and the QUALITY of your LIFE comes down to the QUALITY  of your CELLS.  


Studies found that people who were exposed to very harsh toxic chemicals over time have developed serious health conditions, such as cancer, respiratory diseases, etc. 

In the coming weeks, I will put the spotlight on toxins, exploring the different sources of toxins so that you can identify them and what you can do to protect your hormones and overall health.

Here's what to expect, a deep dive into toxins that are in your: 

  • Health and beauty products (e.g., skincare, cosmetics, nail polish, hair perms, hair color, shampoo & conditioners)

  • Food
