I always believed that I was a healthy person until I was diagnosed with endocrine disease in my late thirties, which made surgery necessary. Boy, was I scared! I was working as a healthcare worker, without health insurance coverage, and I needed surgery! Little did I realize how all that would impact my fertility. I hoped that there would be a day that I could experience pregnancy and childbirth as a married woman.
Fast forward six years later, I was able to become a mom, thanks to our son's biological mother's decision to make an adoption plan and place her newborn son into our care. There was dwindling hope to ever see a positive pregnancy test and I was just so happy to parent and experience all that parenthood involved. I wanted to provide the best for my little one!
As I learned about ingredients and how endocrine disrupters could and were included in many of the products I used daily, I was more and more committed to living toxic free.
My son, even as a baby, preferred Pure Haven Dream Cream, as his cheeks would get so red and dry! He didn't like the fragrances of many of the lotions and creams I tried! I was so shocked that the pediatrician recommended products that contain petroleum which would not allow the skin to breathe!
Today, it is still a journey to become totally free of toxic chemicals in our home, but little by little, we will get there! It makes a difference to my health, to my family's health, and to our environment!
Pure Haven provides non toxic solutions. I am thankful for their policy of 'No Compromise' and feel that I can trust that no toxic ingredients will be included in any products.
