THE 'HARSH' REALITY
Chemical toxins are everywhere.
We’re exposed to over 85,000 of them routinely (and usually unknowingly) in our personal care products, cosmetics, household cleaners, cookware, drinking water, bedding, furniture, building materials and so much more. Every item in our home is a potential source of endocrine disrupting chemicals.
Everyday toxic exposures add up like tiny drops in a bucket, eventually burdening our body with a toxic load that can contribute to many of the chronic symptoms we experience, like insomnia, anxiety, depression, brain fog, thyroid and gut issues, food intolerances, adrenal fatigue, hormone imbalances and illness like cancer, diabetes and obesity.

Cultivating Toxin Conscious Living
“My philosophy is that we can only be as healthy as our immediate environment. The toxic things we put in and on our body and surround ourselves with limit our body’s capacity to be fully alive and well. So you can do all the dieting, detoxing and exercise, but if you don’t deal with the toxic stuff in your home, you’ll be fighting an uphill battle with your health.”
