How can toxins affect us? 

Toxins can cause… 

▶ Energy problems

▶ Sleep troubles 

▶ Digestive problems 

▶ Aches and pains 

▶ Mental issues 

▶ Neurological problems 

▶ Weight problems 

Common household toxins…

❌ VOCs (volatile organic compounds) 

Carpets, home furnishings, interior paints, wood products, plastics

▶ Look for “Low-VOC” and Zero VOC

▶ Keep temperature and humidity low to decrease the amount of some VOCs like formaldehyde from off-gassing

❌ Phthalates and PVC (polyvinyl chloride) 

Plastic wrap, plastic bottles, plastic food storage containers, vinyl flooring, baby toys, shower curtains, cosmetics, air mattresses

▶ Known technically as dialkyl or alkyl aryl esters of 1,2-benzene dicarboxylic acid

▶ Check baby toy labels and look for “phthalate-free

How can you eliminate toxins in your life? 

👍Swap synthetic fragrances (candles, air fresheners, body sprays) with essential oils

👍Use fragrance-free laundry soap

👍Make your own all-purpose cleaner with either castile soap or vinegar

👍Get rid of dryer sheets and use wool dryer balls with a few drops of essential oils

👍Eat organic food: the most important step. Most importantly, buy organic, grass-fed meat

👍Eat more fiber: helps bind to waste products and excrete them

👍Filter your water: fluoride, chlorine, aluminum, arsenic, and herbicides are all toxins that can be in your water systems

👍Cook with lower heat: high-heat cooking and barbecuing damages oils and proteins which can lead to “advanced glycation end products” (AGEs). Try baking, simmering, or steaming your food

👍Use stainless steel, cast iron, or ceramic cookware: nonstick pans contain PFOA which can harm the immune system, liver, and thyroid
