Many studies by now have proved an undeniable fact that household chemicals are linked to human disease. In the USA, various industries manufacture and import over 70,000 chemicals regularly. I was shocked to learn how many of them have never been fully tested for safety. Hence, your own home might be making you sick. From endocrine-disrupting chemicals in your plastic products, to your PVC-containing vinyl household items, to formaldehyde in your pressed-wood furniture, to flame-retardant chemicals in your upholstery – your body might become a repository for toxins, which can lead to a number of health conditions depending on your individual predispositions.
So, some of my clients ask me to visit their home and identify possible sources of toxic impact. I can:
- Evaluate your home for sickness-promoting factors
- Help you choose safer household products
- Identify possible household allergens in your case
- Assist you in making your home healthier
- Decrease toxic burdens you face when you come home
With the overwhelming evidence that purchases for your household can make you or break you, my clients benefit from my services in a variety of ways. In some cases, it is as easy as virtually eliminating chronic sinusitis and rhinitis (stuffy nose) by identifying that some home humidifiers are conducive to mold growth and recommending a better one. While in others, it is hard to pinpoint the toxic invaders and we have to dig deeper.
