How to Detoxify Your Home

So many of us are completely unaware of how much toxicity is in our lives every day. When we talk about detoxing, we thing of ridding ourselves of certain drugs or going on a cleanse or a juice fast. But what I’m really talking about is the ability to make drastic changes in our lives that allows us to live healthier, more meaningful lives.

Detoxification is definitely important when it comes to making our lives better. Every day, we are all experiencing poison of some sort, whether it’s in the food we eat or the images we are bombarded with or the toxins in the air that we are breathing. Fortunately, we can do a lot to reduce the amount of toxins we are being exposed to every day.

The first thing we can do is look at our homes and see what kind of changes we can make every day to make our homes cleaner and less toxic. Let’s start with the kitchen.

The Kitchen
