A vibrant body equals a vibrant voice. A weak body leads to a weak voice. So it's important to maintain a healthy diet that limits the toxic load you take in each day.
Redmond Company, based in Utah, has some wonderful products that I use and love. I recommend that you try their EARTHPASTE. It's really neat because the base is CLAY! Yes, clay!
Animals as well as people have been ingesting CLAY for millions of years. It contains important minerals that our body needs. And while you won't be swallowing the Earthpaste, it's nice to know that it comes from a natural source that is not filled with chemicals.
I am using the Lemon Earthpaste right now and really love the delicate lemon flavor from Essential Oils. Learn more about Essential Oils for Singers.
It's sweetened just enough with Xylitol, which may sound like a chemical, but is actually a natural substance. About Xylitol:
"Over 25 years of clinical testing confirms that xylitol is the best sweetener for teeth, which has led to official endorsements by dental associations in Finland, Norway, Sweden, England, Ireland, Estonia and the Netherlands of products containing high levels of this sweetener.
Xylitol is right here, inside, already. Our bodies naturally produce from 5 to 10 grams every day from other food sources using established energy pathways. It is not a strange or artificial substance, but a natural, normal part of everyday metabolism. It is widely distributed throughout nature in small amounts, with some of the best sources being delicious fruits, berries, mushrooms, lettuce, hardwoods, and corncobs."
The clay also makes my teeth feel really clean -- almost squeaky clean, which makes me know that its slightly, gently abrasive quality helps remove plaque.
And no, it doesn't taste like DIRT, although essentially, it IS dirt. It tastes really good and makes brushing a pleasure. I feel good knowing that I'm not putting damaging chemicals into my mouth, and into my system.
