A few months ago I started using wool dryer balls in place of dryer sheets. I discovered them as I began searching for toxin free fabric softener alternatives. The first I’d heard about the toxins in laundry soap and dryer sheets was from my Chiropractor, Dr Tim Harrigan from Synergy Wellness here in Tucson. Like any woman of intelligence, I didn’t listen. At first.
Something I learned along the way in my health focused journey was that there are so many toxins in our environment that we don’t even realize or think about. Dryer sheets and fabric softener for example. I had no idea!
I went to see my Chiropractor Tuesday. I thought it had been a minute but it turns out I hadn’t been there in a year and a half. No wonder my back has been killing me!If you are or if you know any nurses then you are all too familiar with back issues. Ugh! Lower back especially and lately I’ve been walking kind of funny, almost leaning to one side at times. So I knew it was time for a visit. Turns out I totally NEEDED that adjustment! Everything was out of alignment.
Perfection? No, not at all. Passion? Plenty!! I wish I could say that I sat down tonight to write for the blog and it all came bubbling out on the first draft. But truth be told, I’ve started and re-written this “first draft” one hundred times over. What I’ve come to realize though is that, to be true to you, my readers is to first be true to myself. And guess what? I’m flawed! (gasp!) And I fail (quite often actually!). I aim and sometimes miss the mark.
