Reduce Toxins in Your Home and Body – Air Fresheners
The EPA says that “People spend approximately 90% of their time indoors. So, for many people, the risk to health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors.” And if you can believe it, a lot of that pollution is being brought into our homes by us! We actually are voluntarily spending money on these toxic products and bringing them into our homes. Many of the man made chemicals found in these products can inhibit the overall health of the user – us, our loved ones and pets!
Why is it important to reduce toxins in our home? If you are on a path to be healthier, on a cleansing program or on the Triplex, then it is your goal to reduce the toxic load in your body. Why add to your toxic load while you are working to reduce it? We want those toxins out – and we don’t want to add them back in!
In this video I’ll share how and why air fresheners are negatively affecting your health. I’ll also give you six ideas on how to freshen your home naturally and with no toxins!
Here are the links I mentioned in the video.
