The average home contains between 500-1000 toxic chemicals. And many of those chemicals can’t be seen or smelled but have a negative impact on your health! Studies even show that common household toxins can wreak havoc on your immune system, nervous system and reproductive system.
In fact, did you know that Benzene, a common household toxin found in plastics, dyes, detergents and pesticides, is directly linked to Leukemia?
So to help, here are 4 easy-to-implement and effective ways to detox your home and help you get one step closer to living the healthiest life possible!
1. Open the windows in your home daily for a minimum of 30 minutes.
- Indoor air quality is typically 2-5x more polluted than outdoor air.
- Bring in the cleansing fresh air removes pollutants that off gas from furniture, paint, carpets, etc..
- It helps to reduce condensation that can lead to mold.
- In the warmer months and when able to avoid using the air conditioner or heater, open the windows to enjoy the fresh breeze and to expose yourself to less harmful emissions.
2. Replace synthetic air fresheners and fragrant candles with pure essential oils.
Synthetic fragrance is very toxic!
Over 95% of the chemicals used in synthetic fragrances are derived from petroleum, and the chemicals found in petroleum are linked to cancer. Additionally, when the chemicals are inhaled or come in direct contact with the skin, they can damage the endocrine system, as well as, the liver and kidneys.
Therefore, replacing synthetic air fresheners and candles with essential oil diffusers is a great inexpensive way to not only purify the air but to also support your health!
3. Replace all toxic cleaning products with white vinegar, baking soda and essential oils.
Did you know that only 7% of cleaning products adequately disclose their contents? In fact, according to Environmental Working Group, 53% of cleaning products contain carcinogens such as, formaldehyde and chloroform. However, using baking soda, vinegar and essential oils will clean every surface in the home without the toxicity.
4. Unplug the Wi-Fi when not in use.
As you may know, Wi-Fi routers are a very significant source of EMF radiation exposure in the home and office. Therefore, when it is left on 24 hours a day, you receive a nonstop and significant accumulative exposure to this unhealthy radiation.
Therefore, minimize exposure by unplugging the router when not in use, especially at night. Also, turn smartphones and all mobile devices to airplane mode. When this is done, many people even notice they experience a more restful night’s sleep!
Now…we want to introduce you to Carter!
(This is from Carter’s mom, Whitney.)
“I discovered KICKcancER in 2017 when my mom was diagnosed with a rare cancer. I was drawn to the emphasis on nutrition and lifestyle changes to help cancer patients thrive. It was a contrast to what I heard from her MD’s which was “she was a victim of bad luck and she should eat anything, just get calories in her.”
Fast forward to this past March when my 9 year old son Carter was diagnosed out of the blue with brain cancer. It was beyond devastating. We received excellent care but we heard the same message of “it’s bad luck and he can eat whatever he wants.”
The day we got our KICKcanCER kit, I felt a little lighter and ready to fight. I felt empowered as a parent. We show up to our appointments for treatments, we take the chemo AND we support his body with nourishing foods, essential oils, detox baths, castor oil packs.
Through the abundance of education KICKcanCER provides, we made adjustments to our home. And we all lean heavy on the power of prayer with his Jesus Calling for kids book. We remain laser focused on doing whatever it takes to help our son kick cancer. So grateful for this movement to support us every step of the way!”
