🎧 Home Detox: Part 1May 03, 2022
Podcast music by Chris Robertson.
This week's new podcast is different from the usual format: Usually, I am interviewing a guest. But, in the newest episode, I'm the guest!
In the Spring of 2021, I led a three-part Home Detox workshop series for this wonderful community, Everwell. I will be sharing all three parts with you in the upcoming next three episodes of the Practical Nontoxic Living podcast.
The first episode is an excellent intro and overview of why you should detox your home. It also shares great tips to get started.
- How did I become passionate about studying our toxic exposures and why am I passionate about teaching others about it?
- Why should we detox our homes?
- Which health issues have toxic exposures from our homes and consumer products been linked to or associated with?
- How can we approach detoxing in a simple and inexpensive way?
- What are some tools for talking with other decision-makers?
- How can detoxing be a mindfulness practice?
- What do you think of BPA-free products?
- What detergents do you use?
- What's a simple high-impact tip to reduce EMFs?
- Do magazine covers contain BPA?
- Are there brands that claim to be nontoxic but are not?
- Is there a plastic water bottle that you use?
