Cleaning is crucial when it comes to protecting our health. We’re exposed to toxins, bacteria, and other harmful invaders in our homes, schools, and workplaces. However, household and cleaning products—including soaps, polishes, and grooming supplies—often include harmful chemicals. The good news is that you can limit your exposure to these harsh chemicals. Not to mention that a movement of “green” and “natural” cleaning products is occurring now!
Toxic is a word that continues to pop up in our culture. Toxic chemicals, toxic waste. Even toxic relationships. We are becoming exposed to more and more toxins in our everyday life. Once meant to be helpful and not intentionally dangerous, we are now learning of the alarming effects these chemicals cause. We are continually exposed to chemicals in our food, the air we breathe, and a plethora of common items we all use every single day. To combat these toxins, another word has become popular as of late – detoxification. Ranging from detox teas to charcoal towels, companies rely on this trigger word as a means of advertising to a scared consumer market. But did you know that our bodies naturally detoxify our body? Today, we’re going to jump into the science and begin destigmatizing detox.
