Time to Clean House: Steps you can take that will help with household toxicity.

Posted by Administrator on 1/2/2013

Chronic exposure to a toxic living environment is a common problem today.  Technology has made living indoors an expected pleasure, but there is a price to be paid for exposure to the health hazards that lurk inside every home. Environmental Working Group (EWG) suggests that ongoing exposure to household toxins may be responsible for the alarming increase in cancer, asthma and premature puberty.*

Contaminants from cleaners, cookware and common household materials may also be the cause of headaches, allergies, respiratory difficulties, mental impairment, birth defects and developmental issues.*

According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, Americans use 25 gallons of toxic chemicals in their homes every year. The EWG found that cleaning just once with a typical assortment of common household cleaners available in any grocery store releases 456 distinct chemicals; 6 of which cause or aggravate asthma, and 11 of which are known carcinogens.*

Often the dutiful housekeeper is unaware that repeated exposure to these chemicals can result in chemical sensitivities with symptoms similar to allergies. Subsequent exposure increases the severity of reactions, possibly leading to chronic health problems.*

Exposure to some harmful contaminants, such as lead, asbestos and Bisphenol A, have been reduced drastically due to public awareness and affirmative action groups, but there are still many common hazards to contend with.*

These are just a few:
  • Acetone is an irritant and CNS depressant, commonly found in laundry spot treatments, scuff and nail polish removers.*
  • Diethanolamine (DEA) is a mutagen that reacts with other ingredients to form carcinogens in many cleaning products.*
  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are allergens and immuno-irritants found in air fresheners, hair spray, cleaning products, carpets and pressed-wood furniture.*
  • Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOAs) are carcinogens, liver and immune system toxicants found in Teflon-coated cookware, microwave popcorn bags, stain-resistant clothing and carpets.*
  • Monoethanolamine is a CNS depressant and toxin found in oven cleaners, tub & tile cleaning products, floor strippers, carpet cleaners and laundry pre-soaks.*
  • Naphthalene is a carcinogenic pesticide found in moth balls, pest repellents and deodorizers.*
  • Phthalates are potent hormone disruptors found in vinyl tile and flooring, plastic packaging, childrens toys, shower curtains, shampoo, nail polish, cosmetics.*
  • Parabens (usually prefixed with methyl-, ethyl-, butyl or propyl) are hormone disruptors found in moisturizers, hair care and shaving products.*
  • Xylene is a neurotoxin found in spot removers, floor polishes and ironing aids.*

Toxins are ubiquitous. While it is impossible to completely avoid exposure to the toxic by products of the lifestyle we have grown accustomed to, there are steps we can take that will help with household toxicity.

1. Identify the sources of toxins
2. Replace them with less toxic, more green alternatives
3. Open the windows to remove airborne toxins
4. Detoxify with Mediral Toxinex, 10 drops 3 times/day
5. Treat with symptom-specific allergy remedies
6. Mediral Milk Thistle to help strengthen the liver

Eliminating the toxins in a home can be a long process. Start small and be consistent. Eventually, the house will be toxin free and better health will be a welcome by-product.
