Sophia has distilled 14 years of research into the most basic steps for you to detox your home.
I have learned that space can be cultivated to support our health and wellbeing. When life feels demanding and overwhelming, a home that nurtures rest, repair, and resiliency is appreciated even more as a treasured respite.
I believe everyone can incorporate simple tweaks to transform their home into a healing space. This can empower us for what we cannot control.
This is the most important gift you can give yourself, your family, and your loved ones.
—Sophia Ruan Gushée
The first step to creating a healing space is to reduce unnecessary toxic exposures—toxic chemicals, heavy metals, and electromagnetic fields. This will reduce your body burden (your body's lifetime storage of chemicals), and give your body more opportunity to repair and restore. Toxic exposures can participate in your biochemistry, challenging your body from functioning at its optimal state. With Home Detox 101, you can improve factors that support:
Improved sleep quality
More favorable conditions for fertility
A lifestyle that supports disease prevention
Conditions that can alleviate allergies, asthma, and eczema
Less mental fogginess, clearer focus, and fewer chronic headaches
A lower body burden
