Detoxify Your Life – Part I

I know people are tired of hearing about all the toxic things in our environment, including our homes, but when these toxins affect your health, vitality, and hormones, it is definitely worth more discussion.

Our liver, kidneys, digestive system, lungs and skin are constantly working to detoxify us. Removing foreign chemicals or substances that aren’t nutritious is hard work for these detoxifying organs and takes a toll on our health. In fact, many chemicals act like hormones or serve as hormone disruptors, which is a big challenge for hormone balance.

Toxins lurking in your environment:

In the Home

  • Carpets, mattresses, drapes, and synthetic shoes with noxious chemicals

In the Kitchen

  • Household cleaning chemicals
  • Processed foods
  • Plastic chemicals leaching into bottled water
  • Chlorine, fluoride or metals in water
  • Heavy metals or river runoff in seafood

In the Bathroom

  • Room deodorizers or fragrances
  • Medications
  • Non-organic personal care products, including make-up, shampoo, soap, hair products, and shaving products

In the Laundry Room

  • Laundry products with phosphates
  • Dryer sheets and fabric softeners

In the Garage

  • Solvents
  • Paints
  • Tires and car upholstery with noxious chemicals

In the Environment

  • Industrial fumes
