Our Toxic Exposures

is an overlooked pillar of health that is as important as diet, exercise, sleep, and stress.

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

Our potential health and wellness may be as unique as our fingerprints. Through a healthy lifestyle, we can optimize our potential.

Science has proven that our health results from the complex interplay between our genetics and nongenetic factors. 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, own, and do. And our home, habits, and mindset are important—and manageable—areas that we can influence. That's the kind of detoxification that we will focus on!

Reducing your toxic exposures is the safest and most effective approach to detoxify your mind, body, and energy. 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: The Ultimate Guide to Reducing Our Toxic Exposures and EMF Detox Workbook: Checklists to Recover from Electromagnetic Exposure. They are essential for every health-conscious home. 

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.

For the past 14 years, I have been crafting a nontoxic lifestyle that is practical, effective, and joyful. 

Wanting to make it easier for you to avoid chemicals, heavy metals, and EMFs from what you buy, own, and do, I have been simplifying this highly complex topic.

Myth: A Practical Nontoxic Lifestyle is expensive.

The first three pillars of my Practical Nontoxic Lifestyle are full of budget-friendly (many will not cost anything) tips. 

Detox with ease.

My signature D-Tox ApproachTM offers a structured path to eliminating chemicals, heavy metals, and technology from your home, diet, self-care, and technology. While science-based, it has been tailored to be practical and to protect your joy and convenience. PLUS: It is also good for our planet, eco-systems, drinking water, and food supply!

Protect your joy.

As we develop your practical nontoxic lifestyle, we will pursue simple detox tweaks: "Low hanging fruit."* 

A Cornerstone of my D-Tox ApproachTM 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. This approach is sustainable over your lifetime.

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.
