Paul is right, the HLC program runs through much more than what is covered here and leaves you with a large amount of readings from other authors and himself surrounding many topics. If your wondering about personal hygiene, take note that your skin will obsorb approximately 60% of of chemicals etc which comes in contact with it. keeping this in mind chemicals we place on our skin can be just as harmful as those consumed through food. A personal opinion of mine would be, if it is not of natural origin being that of plant or animal based hygiene products it may be harmful in some proportions to the body. No one would conciously poor petrol on their skin to clean themselves as they know it is a harmful chemical, check the chemical listing on hygiene products or even water sources. This is just my personal belief

Hello and thanks for your comment!
I didn't address hygiene issues because I felt the issues I chose as Absolute Essentials were more essential. That said, hygiene by way of commercial products is very damaging to the body-mind construct. These products "are not regulated by the food industry" and are considered "commercial or industrial products" by most governments. At large, they are created from products of the oil industry! The more expensive ones come from animals like whales, which we shouldn't be harvesting so we can cover the stink of poor lifestyle choices; this is my personal opinion of course.

We do have a complete section on that for our HLC students, so rest assured, we do address it in our training. Thanks for asking!
Much chi,
Paul Chek

Thank you for your wisdom, Paul. One thing I have not heard you speak on is personal hygiene products such as shampoos, deodorants, toothpastes etc. and the effect on which they have on the body. It would be very interesting to hear your views. Thanks again for the knowledge and power to create change.
