Low Hanging Toxins for a Healthier You: Stepping Stones to Switching to Non-Toxic Products

Before diving into the world of non-toxic living, it’s essential to understand the impact of toxins on our health. Toxins are substances that can be harmful or poisonous to the body, often found in everyday products we use, from cleaning supplies to personal care items. These toxins can accumulate in our bodies over time, leading to a range of health issues, including respiratory problems, skin irritations, hormonal disruptions, weight gain, unexplained inflammation, and possibly more serious conditions. By minimizing our exposure to these toxins, we can take proactive steps towards protecting our health and well-being.

Are you feeling overwhelmed by the idea of transitioning to non-toxic products?

You’re not alone. This is a common sentiment, but the good news is that making the switch doesn’t have to be daunting. In this blog, I’ll share simple to more complex ways of how I switched to non-toxic cleaning products in a relatively painless way, broken down into three tiers of affordability and ease.


Affordable and Easy Switches:

  1. Eat Local and Organic: Whenever possible, opt for local and organic produce, especially when avoiding the Dirty Dozen. By prioritizing these choices, you can reduce your exposure to harmful pesticides and synthetic additives.
  2. Read Labels on Body Care Products: Take the time to check the ingredients of your body care products. Resources like the EWG Skin Deep database can help you identify potentially harmful substances and make safer choices for your skin and overall health. Look out for toxic ingredients such as gluten (hydrolyzed wheat product), parabens (methyl-paraben), phthalates, dyes, artificial colors, and synthetic fragrances.
  3. Ditch Toxic Candles and Air Fresheners: Instead of traditional candles and air fresheners loaded with harmful chemicals, consider using essential oils and a diffuser for a natural and toxin-free way to freshen your home. Alternatively, opt for plain beeswax candles for ambiance without unnecessary additives.
  4. Switch Out Cleaning Products: Consider transitioning to non-toxic cleaning products like Branch Basics or other trusted brands. These products offer effective cleaning power without the harmful chemicals found in many conventional cleaners. You can also explore natural alternatives like white vinegar and essential oils for cleaning.
  5. Ditch Your Shoes at the Door: Make it a habit to remove your outdoor shoes before entering your home. Not only does this keep your living space cleaner, but it also reduces the risk of tracking pesticides and herbicides indoors.
  6. Avoid Plastics: Whenever possible, opt for glass or stainless steel storage containers, water bottles, and utensils to minimize exposure to potentially harmful chemicals found in plastics.


More Cost-Intensive, but Obtainable Over Time:

  1. Cookware: Consider investing in non-toxic cookware options such as stainless steel, pure glass, cast iron, or solid ceramic. Nonstick pots and pans can be coated in toxic chemicals that leach into your food when heated, so making the switch is a worthwhile investment in your health.
  2. Sheets and Bedding: Upgrade your bedding to non-toxic options. Since we spend a significant portion of our lives sleeping, it’s essential to prioritize bedding made from safe and natural materials to minimize exposure to harmful chemicals.


Big Investments Non-Toxic Swaps:

  1. Water Filter: Investing in a high-quality water filter can have a significant impact on your health. Public water supplies can contain chemicals, additives, and contaminants, so filtering your water ensures you’re consuming cleaner and safer drinking water. GO HERE to Investigate your city’s tap water contaminants to understand your exposure, even in the shower.
  2. Air Purifier: Consider adding an air purifier to your home to clean the air and reduce toxins and irritants that can affect respiratory health, especially beneficial for those with allergies or asthma.
  3. Mattresses: Believe it or not, even mattresses can harbor toxins. Consider investing in an organic mattress to minimize exposure to harmful chemicals while you sleep.

In the battle against toxic exposure, knowledge is power, and action is key. Armed with awareness and armed with action, we can take control of our health and create a safer, healthier environment for ourselves and future generations. So go forth, my friends, and tackle toxic exposure with gusto. Your body will thank you for it.
