Toxins are just about everywhere these days, and they are interfering with your ability to reach your optimal health. By bringing awareness to where toxins are, you can focus on reducing your exposure in the areas where you have control. Even a few small steps to decreasing your toxic exposure can decrease your risk for cancer, hormonal and reproductive complications and more. Did you know that there are toxins in your food, personal care products, and the air in your home? Learning more about these toxins is the first step to creating healthy change. Here are a few ways you can start to reduce your toxic exposure today:
- Start buying organic produce.
- Read the labels on the products you buy, and look up ingredients if you don’t know what they are. Start buying more consciously.
- Keep the air in your home cleaner by opening windows, buying houseplants, and investing in an air filtration system.
I’ve never been super focused on this stuff, but I just found out that there are parabens in baby lotion (and almost all lotions, makeup, etc), even many of the highest end ones. Can anyone recommend a lotion that does not use toxic chemicals such as this?
That’s a great question! California Baby is a great brand, and not only is it free of parabens, it’s also free of many other toxins that are common in personal care items such as phthalates (usually listed as fragrance), and soldium lauryl sulfate (SLS).
I hope this helps, and feel free to contact me if you’d like to learn more about where toxins are hiding and how you can start making some easy changes to phase them out of your home and habits.
Peace, Love, and Wellness,
