(NaturalNews) Going green isn't only for the planet. Green means living in harmony with the earth and your health can "go green" as well. Here are some tips for improving your health, as well as the health of the planet. Start by removing chemicals from your diet and your skin care.

Eat green food
Organic food, or food that has not been sprayed with pesticides, will keep your insides clean. Fruits and vegetables contain anti-oxidants that fight the free radical cells that cause cancer. Most experts agree that eating five to fifteen servings of vegetables is needed to give the body enough anti-oxidant fuel. Or eat foods known to be high in anti-oxidants, such as green tea, acai berries, blueberries, chocolate, and broccoli.

Apply green skin care
Skin care products without chemical ingredients will enhance your outer green as well.
Avoid products derived from petroleum, such as mineral oil, and petroleum jelly. Sodium laurel sulfate is another additive that is not good for your skin.

Green your commute
Ride or walk on your next errand. You'll save the planet from toxic fossil fuels and add cardio, fat burning to your day. Bring a bag for your groceries. You'll save a tree and build biceps on your way home.

Green your home
Our homes are filled with electricity that wears down the body, kills cells and exhausts the immune systems. At least when sleeping, reduce the emissions from electricity in your environment. Turn off all lights that are not in use, and unplug appliances that are not running, like the toaster, hair dryer, electric can opener, television. This saves energy and improves your sleep. Also turn off your computer and especially your wireless modem. Do not keep your cell phone near your body as you sleep. Move the charger far from your bedroom, and especially far from your head. These electrical impulses are hard to measure, but scientists are now concluding that prolonged exposure can be damaging to your health.

Use non-toxic cleaners. Scrub the wood floor with water and vinegar. The residuals of chemicals used to clean your home end up on your plate and in your body. To clean the air, burn a candle. This will clean smells from the air without adding toxins from artificial scents. Use a candle that burns clean, like beeswax or soy.

Reduce pollution in your home, in your city and in your body and have a happy Earth Day. The planet you save may be your own.
