Eliminate chemicals, heavy metals, and EMFs

from your home, diet, self-care, and technology.

Unburdening your biology has never been more obviously important than in our post-COVID19 environment. 

The Essential Detox can guide your detox of chemicals, heavy metals, and electromagnetic fields from what you buy, own, and do. Through small tweaks that you won't mind pursuing, you will detox your home, diet, self-care, technology, body, and our planet.

The most effective way to detox your brain & body is to detox your home and habits.

The health and wellness that we are each capable of experiencing may be as unique as our fingerprints. Through a healthy lifestyle, we can optimize our potential. With COVID-19 at the top of our minds, detoxing our environments and supporting our immune systems has never been more obviously important.

Often overlooked are the toxic exposures from what we buy and do. And our home & habits are important—and manageable—areas that we can influence. That's the kind of detoxification that I focus on!

Reducing your toxic exposures is the safest and most effective approach to detoxify your body. For guidance on the basic things you can do to detox your home's air, dust, hands, water, and sleep, check out my Essential Detox. It's incredibly helpful! For an insightful, science-based overview of how toxic chemicals, heavy metals, and EMFs can affect our health and brain, read A to Z of D-Toxing, which is essential for every health-conscious home. It also contains profiles of our consumer products so you can learn how to become a savvy conscious consumer.

Since I wanted to refer to this healthy living book often, I designed A to Z of D-Toxing to be easy-to-skim (you can learn something by flipping to any page and reading even just one sentence), and cool enough to leave on a coffee table.

Transform Your Home

Home is often an overlooked pillar of health and well-being. Science has proven that our physical environments—including our built environments—can influence our immune responses, emotions, memories, stress, creativity, productivity, and healing.

I'm Sophia Ruan Gushée.

Nontoxic living is impossible. But practical nontoxic living is essential for optimizing the well-being and genetic expression of you and your loved ones. My signature D-Tox Approach is also good for our planet, eco-systems, drinking water, and food supply!

Detox with ease.

My portfolio of work—my book A to Z of D-Toxing, my podcast Practical Nontoxic Living, my online D-Tox Academy, and my speaking engagements and workshops—are designed to guide, support, and empower you to detox what you buy, own, and do of toxic chemicals, heavy metals, and EMFs. This can reduce the body burdens of those living in your home. Reducing your serious complications from COVID-19 is one obvious example of the benefits from a practical nontoxic lifestyle.

Protect your joy!

We will pursue simple detox tweaks: Low hanging fruit. 

A Cornerstone of my D-Tox Approach is the "Love Test," which protects what you love and need so that we can detox the rest. This allows you to hack your toxic exposures from what you won't miss, while never threatening your joy. 

I aim to show people that practical nontoxic living does not have to equate to a life of deprivation. Rather, it can enrich your life with beauty, peace, healing, and abundance. Click here to learn more about my nontoxic living expertise and mission to help others.

Home Should Be Your Healing Space

Science has proved that certain design elements can transform space—like hospital rooms or homes—into contributing factors for healing. How might your life be transformed if your home helped you restore your body, mind, spirit, peace, and joy? 

Essential to a healing space, however, is one that poses no harm. Since indoor air is estimated to be at least 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air, even in the most industrialized cities (like NYC), the tips of a Home Detox are invaluable to a healthy home. Learn more below about my Essential Detox, which includes three pillars of a healthy home and lifestyle: Detox 101, Home Detox, and EMF Detox. Also, start by detoxing your cleaning with my free Cleaning Detox Cheat Sheet.
