What you don’t know CAN hurt you. I have an autoimmune disease, and I am very sensitive to a lot of things. More and more of us are. Especially chemicals. I had not thought about how many chemicals are in our soap, lotions, shampoo, conditioners, deodorants and other products that we use daily. Something else to think about, those in gels, shampoos and conditioners flow over our entire body when we take a shower – and may irritate. They're finding that many bacteria are not only safe, but necessary, and we're killing them with these products. Sandy is a practicing dermatologist and has run into many cases where chemicals have caused terrible problems for people. She has written a detailed explanation as to what products – including those listed as NATURAL – can be harmful, right down to what to watch out for. I learned a lot from this book and have been putting her advice into practice. I’ve purchased some of the products on her recommended list, and have seen great improvement. This book is an investment in your health and wellbeing! I highly recommend it. #BeyondSoap #NetGalley Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the Netgalley bloggers book review program.
