Detoxing you home is just as important as detoxing your body. Today, environmental contaminants are found in many common items in our homes. When we are surrounded with these contaminants, they enter into our lungs, into our skin, into our mucous membranes and therefore into our bodies. Over time, these agents disrupt our hormones, thyroid function, immune function, and inhibit the vitality of the body. There are numerous studies that show each contaminant’s effect on the body and the disease process that it creates. If you are curious about the studies, use educational agencies such as The Environmental Working Group and The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences as starting points for your research.
Once ready to detox your house, I recommend that you start making the changes that come easily such as removing shoes and swapping out cleaning supplies. Once you have made the easiest changes, make a plan to address the more complex items such as furniture made from composite woods. Set goals on your calendar so that you can break this down into multiple little projects, rather than one overwhelming project. Also, choose 1 room each month that you plan to detox. The key to success in making these changes, is in taking it step by step and setting attainable goals.
