We can’t always see and smell them, but our bodies are effected by the thousands of chemicals we are exposed to in our homes.
Maybe you have done a some detoxification in order to eliminate internal toxins and chemicals from your body, but have you done anything for your home? Ultimately, the air you breathe and the environment you are in most, affects your health. It doesn’t make sense to only concentrate on your body and not your environment, they go hand in hand. Common household items and body care products are being found to have negative health effects on our nervous, immune, reproductive, endocrine, cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
Indoor air is typically 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air. Home insulation is so wonderful when it comes to keeping our homes nice and warm in the winter and cool in the summer, but it doesn’t allow fresh air in and the bad air out. We’re constantly breathing in the same musty air. Wall-to-wall carpet keeps are feet warm, but it can also trap a countless number of toxins, dirt, dust, fleas and lead.
You don’t have to give up a beautiful, cozy home in order to reduce exposure to external toxins. By detoxing our bodies and our environment we allow our body’s own detoxification system to function better.
