Soulcare Serengeti is only using natural cleaning products, 80% plus organic foods and we limit the environmental toxins as far as we can to provide the healing platform set my Owner and Healer Omar Botha.

You may have heard about different ways our environment is polluted, but you may be surprised to find out about some of the specific poisons in our environments that can hinder us from overcoming symptoms and conditions and slow down our healing process. This article will show you how to protect yourself against these destructive forces. Know that there is much you can do to heal, no matter how many of these you are exposed to.

Environmental Issues Inside the Home

Allergies, monthly headaches during your menstrual cycle, asthma, eczema, anxiety, fatigue, hair loss, brain fog, confusion, weakness, aches and pains, and a host of other health issues can all be exacerbated by environmental issues.

With all of the triggers I’ll discuss, please don’t worry if you are in a circumstance where you cannot avoid or eliminate the trigger. Know that you can make the best choices you’re able to protect yourself in other ways, such as through food choices or with supplements.

Carpet Chemicals

Brand new carpet contains solvents, fungicides, and other toxic chemicals, which can trigger seasonal-affective-disorder-like symptoms and other conditions and symptoms connected with any active or inactive viruses you have. For example, if you have Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and you’re exposed to the chemicals found in new carpets, a host of symptoms and conditions may arise, such as fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, Lyme disease, aches and pains, brain fog, migraines, Hashimoto’s, psoriasis or asthma.

Conventional carpet cleaners typically use a large number of different solvent chemicals mixed into a single, toxic brew. People don’t realize that the freshly cleaned carpets they’re walking on barefoot or letting their children play on have been saturated in a harmful solution. The solvents and chemicals found inside freshly cleaned carpets can trigger viruses in people’s bodies, such as EBV.

Another problem is that older carpets especially tend to begin breaking down and can harbor mold.

Soulcare only uses natural cleaning products!

Paint

Be cautious and mindful of painting projects inside the home. Fresh paint can have a negative impact on your health, and it takes time for paint fumes to dissipate. Viral and bacterial conditions are more easily triggered when someone is living in a freshly painted space.For example, streptococcus could be triggered, which could result in a health-related difficulties including SIBO, sinus congestion, UTIs, styes, and acne. If possible, use low-VOC paint.

Mold

Mold can be present in a variety of places. Different types of black mold that may appear inside the walls, underneath the kitchen sink, or other places around the home can trigger serious health symptoms and conditions. Black mold can be a major trigger for neurological viruses that create Lyme disease symptoms, a variety of multiple sclerosis, or a host of other health-related issues.

Water

From brushing your teeth to washing your hands to soaking in the tub after a busy day, you’re constantly encountering varying qualities of water. Many people know to avoid drinking tap water whenever possible. If you cannot afford a high-quality water filter, even a semi-decent filtration system can offer some benefits.

When you run a bath or step into the shower, you’re often bathing in chlorine and fluoride. These substances are not ideal for your health or healing. I worked with one client who developed chronic fatigue because of constant exposure to chlorine while showering, on top of an Epstein-Barr virus. After addressing the chlorine, the fatigue reduced by 75%.

We are only using borehole water for showers and it is all tested and filtered to Soulcare's standards.

Air

Every state in the U.S. has areas that are specifically designated for agricultural use. In many of these areas, workers lay down hundreds of billions of pounds of plastic throughout rows of produce. These often white (but sometimes black) colored row covers are vastly different than the row covers you may use in your backyard garden to provide protection and pest control.

These toxic plastic row covers blanket thousands of acres of crops throughout the U.S. and in other countries, and they’re sprayed multiple times a week with rodenticides, herbicides, pesticides, insecticides, and fungicides. The barrels these chemicals come from display a unique variety of hazard label, which is a large skull and bones, and the mixture that’s eventually sprayed on the crops is concocted in a massive containment unit. The people who cover these plastics with those toxic chemicals have to wear hazmat suits to protect themselves.

Once the conventional crops are ready to be harvested, the plastics are gathered and burned. During this process, dangerous furans take to the air. Burning plastic by itself can be toxic, but this becomes an even greater issue because of the high levels of pesticides, fungicides, rodenticides, and herbicides covering these plastics. This hidden practice is wreaking havoc on people’s lives, but it’s slipping under the radar of experts and environmentalists.

Communities

If you live in a gated community, retirement complex, condo, or other communal space, you are likely exposed to rampant pesticide use. The hundreds of pounds of pesticides used on lawns, bushes, and other greenery in these community spaces affect people who live in these places. These chemicals are also carried by the wind so they have adverse effects on people outside the community.

Golf Courses, Parks, and Lawns

Lethal fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides cover most golf courses, and most people who play on these courses will suffer some negative health consequences because of it. Not only are your feet, ankles, and legs exposed to tremendous amounts of pesticides and herbicides, but you’re breathing in these toxins as well.

Parks and sports fields are also heavily sprayed with chemicals. It’s unfortunate that places that bring joy to so many families can be highly toxic.

For your health, reconsider spraying your lawn with an herbicide or treating the inside or outside of your home with insecticide.

New Cars, Furniture, and Clothes

Toxic solvents create that new car smell and can linger in a vehicle and cause problems for up to six months. If you have allergies or chemical sensitivities and you get a new car, know that you may suffer with these symptoms more during the first few months after your purchase.

If you buy a new piece of furniture, it’s likely laced with fungicides and nanotechnology. It may also have a smell, which is due to the high-level of solvents typically found in new fabrics. Even if the furniture doesn’t smell, solvents are still usually present. Due to the toxic nature of the solvents, simply sitting on a new piece of furniture could slow down someone’s healing.

Whenever you purchase new clothes, blankets, towels, quilts, or other bedding, wash them before you wear them. Many of these new pieces have been saturated with formaldehyde, fungicide, and other toxic chemicals. Avoid traditional dry cleaners as well, as the toxic chemicals used at these places can hinder healing.

Detergents and Hair Care Products

When doing laundry, it’s important to use a natural detergent. Conventional detergents usually contain petrol oil, which may slow healing efforts.

Be mindful of the products you use, including creams, gels, sprays, and hair products. One past client returned to my office because her headaches had come back after a three-month respite. Spirit told me the client was using a different, more toxic brand of hairspray. My client confirmed this was the case.

No Hair Care Products are allowed at the lodge. You will all receive your Natural hair care products in each Chalet.

Perfumes and Colognes

Perfumes and colognes should be avoided whenever possible. Chemical compounds used in perfumes and colognes have the same chemical compound construction as particular pesticides and herbicides.

Perfumes and colognes are so toxic that simply breathing in the cologne or perfume of another colleague at work on a daily basis can set your healing back slightly.

If you’re hesitant to give up your perfume or cologne, switch to some high-quality essential oils. Essential oils can give you a wonderful fragrance without exposing you to toxins.

Air Fresheners

Plug-in air fresheners, like perfumes and colognes, possess the same chemical compound construction as certain pesticides and herbicides. Remove and toss any plug-in air fresheners or sprays. Air fresheners are so harmful that moving into a place where air fresheners were once used can actually slow down someone’s healing for a period of time.
