This is an excerpt from an article written for Whole Foods Magazine.
When we get sick and finally get our pill for our ill, we now enter another source of exposure of toxicity. Medications, which are supposed to help us, sometimes bring in toxic chemicals that can cause disease as well. The active ingredient of medications is only a part of what we are taking. The fillers, excipients, coloring agents, preservatives, etc. may all affect us negatively.
The world is starting to understand this, and there is a growing movement to eliminate toxic chemicals from our lives. Organic foods represent a big movement, as do toxin-free cosmetics, green architecture, toxin-free plastics, eco cleaning products, and water filters; the list goes on and on. If we need to take them, clean medications are as important as clean foods. I always wondered why nobody was making them, until I found out about a new pharmaceutical company called Genexa.
They make a line of over-the-counter (OTC) medications with cleaner, natural inactive ingredients. I decided to join the company as a medical adviser because the mission is personal to me. I rarely get involved with companies, but I have three children who every now and then need to take acetaminophen or ibuprofen when they have a fever. I want to have toxic-free versions of those to give my family, and to take myself. And so, should you.
