Gradual Detox


Detox Deep Dive


We get it.

Life is busy and there's endless information out there about nontoxic living. A wasteland of buzzwords, acronyms, and marketing lingo—it's enough to make your head spin. And, in the worst case, enough to simply give up on cleaning up.

Ruan Living simplifies the process of detoxifying your life.

We, humans, are part of Nature. We are Nature.

And boundaries between environments are permeable. The ecosystem inside your body is a microcosm of the environments in your home and our planet. Our bodies, residences, and planet are our Home. We are interconnected. 

Ruan Living can help you detoxify every area of your life at your own pace—whether you want to detoxify slow and steady or through a deep dive.

Whichever way you choose, a cleaner Home awaits.

Meet Our Founder

Sophia Ruan Gushée—author of the bestselling book A to Z of D-Toxing, critically acclaimed by some of the world's leading scientists, physicians, wellness pioneers, and conscious consumers

I am passionate about empowering people with the safest way to detoxify their body: avoiding toxic exposure of chemicals, heavy metals, and electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from what we buy, own and do.

Why do I care so much? Because it's super influential and often overlooked.

My interest in avoiding toxic exposure that is easy to avoid began soon after my first daughter was born in 2007. Stunned...

Our Toxic Exposure

is an overlooked pillar of health that is as important as diet, exercise, sleep, and stress. While toxic free living and a chemical free home are impossible, practical nontoxic living will provide your body, brain, and energy with more restorative periods that can support your unique resiliency.

The most effective way to detox your brain & body is to minimize toxic exposures, habits, and perspectives that pose health risks.

Science has proven that our environment and lifestyle influence how our genes are expressed. And COVID-19 has prompted more of you than ever to detoxify your environment, detox your home, and detoxify your life. Unburdening our immune systems has never been more obviously important.

Often overlooked is toxic exposure from what we buy, own, and do. And our home, habits, and mindset are important—and manageable—areas that we can influence. That's the kind of detoxification that Ruan Living focuses on: simple detox tweaks for clean living that doesn't threaten your convenience and happiness!

Reducing your toxic exposure is the safest and most effective approach to detoxify your mind, body, and energy. For an insightful, science-based overview of how toxic chemicals, heavy metals, and EMFs can affect our health and brain, read the critically acclaimed A to Z of D-Toxing: The Ultimate Guide to Reducing Our Toxic Exposures and EMF Detox Workbook: Checklists to Recover from Electromagnetic Exposure. They are essential for every health-conscious home. They will help you unlock healthier lifestyle benefits. 

Due to our unique genetic and nongenetic factors, our health and wellness potential is as unique as our fingerprints. But a more holistically mindful lifestyle that integrates practical nontoxic living will optimize your health.

Transform Your Home

Home is often an overlooked pillar of health and well-being. Science has proven that our physical environments—including our built environments—can influence our immune responses, emotions, memories, stress, creativity, productivity, and healing. 

Essential to a healthy home is detoxing it!

Home Should Be Your Healing Space

Science has proved that certain design elements can transform space—like hospital rooms or homes—into contributing factors for healing. How might your life quality change if your home helped you restore your body, mind, spirit, peace, and joy? 

Essential to a healing space, however, is one that poses no harm. Since indoor air is estimated to be at least 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air, even in the most industrialized cities (like NYC), the tips of a home detox are invaluable to a healthy home.
