One of my favorite things to talk about is removing toxins.


Because it’s a HUGE part of our health that is often forgotten. Not to mention that it’s something you can do right now, to make a big change, without much effort.

This is a topic you can get pretty crazy with, so I’m only going to share my TOP 5 quick fixes.

Let’s get on with it!

1. Buy a shower filter.

Did you know that up to 60% of the chlorine found in your body got there through your skin1? That’s right. Even though you drink water all day, that 10 minute shower can make all the difference!

My favorite filter {by far} is this Berkey Shower Filter

2. Stop using commercial cleaning products.

You don’t even want to know what’s in those things! Let’s just say, it’s not good. Ditch the Clorox, Windex, & 409, & opt for a truly clean cleaning product.

My favorite all-purpose cleaner is by Branch Basics, but good ol’ white vinegar & baking soda go a long way as well!

3. Buy organic.

Yea yea, you’ve heard it before. But seriously. Have you seen that video showing how much lower a family’s toxic load was after switching to organic for just ONE week? If not you can check it out below:

If buying everything organic isn’t an option or preference, aim to at least hit the dirty dozen.

4.Ditch the plastics.

This topic covers a lot of ground…plastics are everywhere! Here are some hot spots & my favorite alternatives:

Problem: plastic food storage
Solution: Glasslock food storage

Problem: plastic shower curtains
Solution: hemp or cotton shower curtains

Problem: plastic children’s toys
Solution: Melissa & Doug wooden toys

5. Open the windows

Seriously. It can be THAT easy! Our indoor air quality is often multiple times more toxic than outdoor air–even in big cities.

Keep the fresh air flowing through to help dilute & rid of toxins in your home.


Home detox can get pretty deep! These are some simple steps to get started.
