Health-conscious mother of three, Sophia Ruan Gushée thought she knew how to be healthy: she ate well and exercised a lot. Only after she became a mother did she become aware of an overlooked influence on health: toxic exposures.  

Avoidable toxic exposures pervade not just our outdoor environments but also our homes, bodies, and diet. Their impact on health can be most influential during periods of rapid biological development, which makes protecting children a top priority. 

Research is linking everyday toxic exposures to many adverse health effects, including skin issues, asthma, allergies, cancer, developmental disorders (like attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and autism), fertility challenges, hormone disruption, obesity, precocious puberty, pregnancy issues, and more.

Sophia has dedicated 10+ years identifying balanced—and practical—approaches for a healthy home and healthy family lifestyle. In A to Z of D-Toxing: The Ultimate Guide to Reducing Our Toxic Exposures, Sophia shares what she learned.  

Created to be the only reference book that a head of household needs to detox your home, it includes hundreds of tips, as well as 10 main ideas to implement today: Sophia's D-Tox Strategy.
