Non-Toxic Life

Non-Toxic Life

Some people got upset when I posted about how to choose healthy topical products and said that it wasn’t a recipe. However, I look at the whole picture when it comes to health and weight loss.

If you are constantly using shampoos, lotions and make-up with chemicals you are creating a Toxic Liver. Your liver plays a major role in weight loss. The liver is a chief organ in the body for metabolism functions. Keeping our liver at optimal health should be a main focus of your weight loss plan.

Living a non-toxic life wasn’t an overnight process for me but it was essential for me to heal my hormonal imbalances.

When the liver is overloaded and toxic, every organ in a person’s body is affected and weight loss efforts are stalled. Some signs of a toxic liver are weight gain, cellulite, abdominal bloating, indigestion, fatigue, mood swings, depression, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, and skin rashes.

Many people struggle with weight gain and a sluggish metabolism most of their lives, and go through lots of yo-yo dieting unsuccessfully. “So why doesn’t anything really work?” we may ask. We have been tackling the symptom when we should be addressing the cause; weight gain is often due to poor liver function. T4 is converted into t3 in the LIVER not in the thyroid so making sure your liver is healthy helps your thyroid function!

The liver performs more than 400 different jobs, and is the body’s most important metabolism-enhancing organ; it acts as a filter to clear the body of toxins, metabolize protein, control hormonal balance and enhance our immune system. Your liver is a “worker bee” that can even regenerate its own damaged cells! But our liver is not invincible. When it is abused and lacks essential nutrients, or when it is overwhelmed by toxic chemicals, it no longer performs as it should. Fat may build up in the liver and just under the skin, hormone imbalances can develop, and toxins increase and get into the blood stream.

How can you have a non-toxic life?

Eating a healthy keto lifestyle without harmful vegetable oils such as corn, canola, soybean, cottonseed, safflower, and hydrogenated oils is essential! Those damaging fats create structural damage to your cells. But another piece to healing is to look at all the toxins you may be putting onto your skin!

Making changes in my pantry as well as my bathroom pantry wasn’t an overnight process. I slowly learned how even though we were impeccable with our food choices we still were getting chemicals in our body with the lotions, shampoos and products I was putting on my skin as well as my kids (who are most vulnerable). That’s when I decided to throw out the chemicals and start using products that are not only healthy for my family, but they are healthy for the environment.

These are my FAVORITE GIFTS to give to my friends and family! They are the gifts that keep on giving and your friend thinks of you every time they use these healthy non-toxic products! 



I get asked daily on how I get my curls so perfect! Honestly, I do not wash my hair very often! I use this Organic Leave-In conditioner after I rinse my hair and I use these Organic Curly Hair products:

“Hi Maria! Thank you for healing me!

I just went over my labs with my integrative medicine doc and she said I have the liver of an 18 year old. I’m 57. I told her I owed it all to Maria Emmerich!

Thank you so much all your hard work and wonderful information! You have changed my life. My cholesterol numbers were good (not too low) and she said I no-longer have no signs of insulin resistance or diabetes; vitamin D and B were great. YOU ARE AWESOME.” – Terri

    I agree, Maria.
    I addressed liver, gallbladder and pancreas…I’d be dead if I didnt…
    Organic micogreens I grow, bone broth, no sugar/grain/carb, clean purified air indoors, coconut oil was key in healing because I couldn’t assimilate anything else,
    vinegar, baking soda, peroxide cleaning product,
    Dr. Bronners soap, Babo fragrance free, shampoo, make my own mix of Organic aloe vera gel and organic jojoba oil for skin, organic brow pencil…that’s it!
    I healed myself. loved every step.

    I very much appreciate ALL the health tips you offer. Eating healthy is only part of the picture. What you put in and on your body should be equally important. After all your skin is the largest organ and what you put on it gets metabolized by the liver. I have learned so much about how to live healthy in every aspect after starting keto. I’ve slowly started to remove toxins from my life and I am grateful for your help, knowledge, and time. Thanks Maria

    Your website is called Maria MIND, BODY, HEALTH!

    It’s not Maria’s keto recipes lol

    We don’t buy as many natural products as we should, but I really appreciate the time you take to inform us all.

    I think sometimes people don’t use healthier products because they just don’t know about them. There are so many things to choose from in stores and online. It can get overwhelming!

    But by you putting articles out like this, you’re showing us that we CAN get these products to better our health.

    So thank you, Maria! 😊

  • Teresa Eden says:

    Health is the ticket! in order to buy the ticket however, you have to stand in the right line. . .I’ll stand in line with you, who has researched and understands the science of why these products and chemicals hurt us, thank you for all aspects of your research and again, your humanity and compassion, your fan, Teresa Eden

    Do you have a recipe for shampoo. Most are so expensive. I’ve been using coconut oil as a leave in conditioner for my daughter.
