Why your choices Matter
Could plug-ins be making you sick? What about your shampoo. Believe it or not, the answer is yes! Twenty six seconds after exposure, chemicals are found in measurable amounts in the human body. The average woman applies 300 chemicals to her body a day (80 before breakfast).
The top ten most dangerous chemicals in our homes include air fresheners (plug-ins or candles), cleaning supplies for your counters, floors, toilets, drains, oven, furniture, dishes, etc…) It also includes gel, shampoo and deodorant, fabric softener and laundry soap. Deodorant with aluminum is one of the leading causes of Alzheimers and Parkinson’s disease in the United States. One of the top pollutants in the home is that which we use to wash and dry our clothes. The chemicals in laundry soap and dryer sheets sit on our skin and out gas in our closets.
What happens when your body is chemically overloaded? It may show up as disease, or quite often in other ways as well. Lethargy, inability to focus, sleep trouble, chronic inflammation, unexplained pain, skin issues, unbalanced hormones, hot flashes, stress, anxiety.
