Removing harmful toxins from the environment, your body and your Koi pond is certainly a necessary, straightforward thing to do….get rid of the bad stuff, so the good stuff can grow, thrive and blow bubbles. But “toxins” come in many forms, including elements of your life, your personality, and your habits that interfere with your success, growth, mental health and happiness. Here’s a few suggestions and resources regarding detoxifying your life, lifestyle, and work/life balance.

Note these suggestions and resources are exceptionally relevant and helpful to you Moms out there – juggling and balancing incredible demands of family, personal life and health, professions, hobbies and other activities.

Detoxifying clay, i.e. calcium montmorillonite in edible or absorptive form, is a very crucial mineral supplement that can eliminate or reduce – through ionic mineral action – the presence of many harmful toxins, chemicals and minerals in your system (and Koi pond). It can and should be an essential part of you and your family’s diet, including your pets!

Personal life coaching is something to seriously consider, and hire professional assistance for, to help build and maintain self-esteem, confidence, reduce stress and generally achieve a much more balanced and proactive outlook on life and dealing with life’s challenges. Detoxify your life environment – here’s a Louisville, KY Personal Life Coach who’s both well-known and trusted as a professional life coaching expert. Life improvements through personal coaching range from money management and philanthropic activities (like helping nonprofits raise money through charity raffles), to family management, nutrition and both body and mental exercise.

Executive coaching and business/career coaching can be a crucial tool for exploring, creating and growing professional opportunities as you develop additional or enhanced executive management skills and presence – particulary for those of you re-entering the workforce, changing jobs or careers, or simply looking to get that “boost” you need to land a more profitable and responsible position. Here’s a Northern Virginia Executive Coaching resource who’s quite popular in the Metro Washington DC area.

Detoxify your office and work environment – this is a very serious and significant action to consider, from making sure your personal working space and shared work areas are hygenic, clean and safe, to understanding whether or not the facility office janitorial services are effective, comprehensive and provide all necessary environmental detox capabilities from carpet cleaning, to air purification and construction cleanup. Washington DC’s premier Office Janitorial Service from Mister Kleen is a great example of a company to turn to, for making sure your office or commercial facility is addressing the environmental toxins in the work environment on a regular or emergency basis.

While removing toxins from your body is a very important element of good health, weight and physical fitness is also an extremely critical part of good mental and physical health – yet can be very hard to address among all your other family, professional or social responsibilities. Plus it takes incredible motivation, consistency and for some, expensive equipment or facilities. However, there are some excellent sources of inpiration, guidance and help for finding time and motivation to exercise – letting “life be your workout”.

This next resource is a bit tongue-in-cheek – but – it’s well known that alcohol kills germs; and there’s some scientific evidence that routine (though not excessive) consumption of red wine or beer provides some health benefits…so, detoxify your mental stress, and disinfect your digestive tract, by visiting your local brewmaster; make a special effort to visit the Northern Virginia Summer Brewfest, in Loudoun County, VA for great beer, great food, great music and an altogether detoxifying experience!

It’s springtime – and that means it’s time to make sure your outdoor waterways, decorative water gardens and Koi ponds are clear and clean, and ready for warmer weather. Over the winter, most ponds and waterways build up many layers of toxic, murky pollutants and sediments, from the residues of fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. This buildup of toxins is has an especially detrimental effect on Koi fish. In the spring, these toxins and muck turn quickly to microbiotic overgrowth, algae and other scum that will suppress the balanced ecosystem in your wetland area or pond, be very harmful to your trout or Koi, and generally become a very expensive problem.

There is one way to clarify, purify, and polish your water naturally, removing and repairing winter’s damage. TerraPond by California Earth Minerals is a 100% natural cleansing and regenerative clay mineral compound for ponds and waterways. TerraPond is made from ION-MIN, a premium calcium montmorillonite clay-based ionic mineral powder, well known for its natural water purification and decontamination properties. It can quickly revive turbid, murky waters and restore aquatic environments to crystal clean water habitats that your Koi or other aquatic residents will thrive within. According to expert Koi breeders, natural clay-lined ponds provide the very best Koi environment. Calcium montmorillonite clay for Koi ponds and waterways provides for better health and vitality, coloration, stronger immune systems, and a greater likelihood of a healthy life.

TerraPond’s negative magnetic charge bonds with positively charged impurities (pathogens, toxins, decomposed organic materials, etc.) creating micro-encapsulated particles larger in size and weight. This electrical ion exchange process is also referred to as “flocculation”, and the increased mass that results can be safely removed by most bio filtration systems. In natural ponds (non-filtered) or larger lake environments (where the recommended application of TerraPond is in powdered form), these enlarged and heavier particles sink to the pond floor and safely decompose. This process is very similar to leaves dropping in the forest and decomposing/composting over time.

Take time right now as winter ends to inspect your backyard or landscaping Koi ponds or other decorative waterways hosting aquatic life. Before spring gets fully underway, buy TerraPond natural water purification powder containing premium calcium montmorillonite, and add it to your ponds – ensuring healthy, active Koi or other fish, and crystal clear, pure pond water. Purifying, cleaning and clarifying your Koi ponds in the springtime is as important as fertilizing your new lawns and gardens, and is in fact absolutely necessary to counteract the oversupply of toxins and pesticides that run off into your waterways.

TerraPond natural Koi pond clarifier, water treatment and water purifier products can be obtained online at California Earth Minerals, the premium provider of calcium montmorillonite clay-based products and calcium mineral supplements for personal or environmental use.
