RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SWIMMERS TO MINIMIZE TOXIC CHLORINE LEVELS IN AND ON THE BODY.

 

You can benefit from these procedures even if you don't swim because there's likely chlorine in your tap water, unless you have your own well.  Just ignore the first two suggestions but pay close attention to the rest as they'll help remove excess chlorine stored or circulating in the body.  This applies to those of us who sit in natatoriums during our children's or friends swim practices and meets. Try putting 1gram of Vitamin C crystals in 16-20 ounces of water and drink it throughout the practice or meet.

 


(These are just general guidelines but they should make a very noticeable difference in the amount of chlorine you smell and feel on the skin.)

  • Rinse off thoroughly before entering pool - it removes the organic compounds chlorine likes to bond to (ammonia from sweat, perfume; lotion, make-up, etc)
  • Rinse off after swimming as follows: spray hair and body with vitamin-C spray (leave for a few seconds), thoroughly rinse hair and entire body.  Shampoo, if desired.
  • Consume post-swim recovery shake:  (whole-food-based, organic vitamin C-crystals from Synergy), Ormus greens, 1/2 SunWarrior protein, non-dairy milk (or could use organic, grass-fed raw milk www.vogelcertifiedorganics.com)

  • Rebuild intestinal flora with probiotic supplements (SunWarrior Ormus Greens), fermented foods & drinks, minimize sugar consumption to avoid candida imbalance.

•Used in creation of plastic, rubber, PVC (polyvinyl chloride), food prep/sanitation

 
•Strong disinfectant used to control harmful organisms in municipal water supplies (EPA.gov)
 
•Used as the first poisonous gas in warfare in WWI (http://www.health.ny.gov)
 
•Used in Agent Orange in the Vietnam War to defoliate the jungle and destroy enemy crops (http://www.health.ny.gov)
 
•Municipal water supply chlorination is 4ppm max (averaged annually), chlorinated pools are suggested to be 2-4ppm max.
Byproducts of chlorine are chloroform, trihalomethane and chloramines (studies show to be carcinogenic)
