It is Mental Health Awareness month and our second week of applying our Four Pillars of Health. We’re going to switch this up a bit! I typically talk about ditch and switch when speaking on the environment, which is always good to do because there is so much information on environmental pollution and mental health, but today we’re going to talk about the physical environment.
Many of the big pools are switching over to salt water and this is huge! Chlorine filled pools can actually block the iodine absorption sites for the thyroid. Which can ultimately put you at risk for skin and immune conditions.
When you’re out by the pool or enjoying the weather, so are all of the bugs and outdoor summer annoyances! When I was growing up, I was terribly allergic to no-see-ums. They have teeth like alligators, and I would wake up scratching and bleeding.
