Environmental Toxins - How They May Be Hurting You And What You Can Do About It

July 02, 2020 2 min read

 

One thing that not a lot of health professionals talk about is toxins. Toxins permeate our lives, our world, and the products and food that we eat every day. Which is why we have to become more aware of them. Lara Adler is a certified health coach who has dedicated her life to researching and helping others understand the toxins they come in contact with every day. 


So where do you come in contact with toxins? Almost everywhere. You can find toxins in your beauty products, the cookware you use, the household cleaners under you sink. Almost everywhere. Listen as Lara shares the things that you should look out for when you look to purchase your next round of products.


The one toxin that is easily removed from your household is phthalates. You’ll never see this on an ingredients label but it is used to boost fragrances. So if you start looking for fragrance free cleaners and soaps, you’ll be well on your way to reducing your toxic load.


Another thing to keep in mind is flame retardants in your furniture. The laws have changed in recent years, but if you have older furniture, it may be time to buy something new. Flame retardants are highly toxic and are released as your couch cushions and mattresses break down. 


There are so many areas that toxins invade our lives. Listen to learn how you can start evaluating the products you buy and make smarter purchasing decisions.
