What triggers your feel-good hormones?

by Sophia Ruan Gushée

Updated November 25, 2020 to include Practical Nontoxic Living podcast episode 18: Essential Features of a Healing Space. Originally published on February 14, 2019.

 

It feels like there's a tremendous collective craving for more true connections, kindness, and sincere love. Especially love for oneself.

I don't know if my stage in life makes me more observant of this, if it's my particular lens and/or my surroundings (NYC), or if it's a new...

The air purifier I use for my family

indoor air lungs Nov 24, 2020

Updated November 23, 2020 to consider my podcast interview with Vinny Lobdell, Jr, founder of Intellipure. This post was originally published in June 2018.

One of the most common questions I'm asked is, "Which air purifier do you use?"

Recently, after speaking at a wellness event for the Brown Alumni Club of NY, my fellow panelist Max Goldberg (someone you should follow and support because he's working hard to protect our food supply from toxic chemicals: visit his website...

Detox Your Spray Products to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

home detox indoor air lungs Nov 23, 2020

Inspired by lung cancer awareness month, let’s choose one detox tweak that unburdens our lungs.

This week: edit your spray products. Search your home while responding to the question: How many spray products in my home are unused? 

Then discard those responsibly, and note how many you eliminated from your home. Feel proud because they are potential sources of toxic fumes—even if they are unused! Let me know how it goes @ruanliving on Instagram or ...

🎧 NEW PODCAST: "If you have lungs, you can get lung cancer."

This podcast episode was inspired by lung cancer awareness month. My friend Reina Honts, who is also the guest of this episode, has taught me that lung cancer is not just a smoker's outcome. If you have lungs, then you should be aware that:

  • Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death worldwide
  • Lung cancer takes twice as many women's lives as breast cancer
  • Lung cancer takes twice as many men's lives as prostate cancer
  • People who have never smoked account for 20K-30K lung...

Give Your Cell Phone an EMF Nap

emf detox Nov 12, 2020

Our cell phones work 24/7: transmitting emails, texts, phone calls and downloading videos, music, pictures, and more. They need a break too!

And when they are disabled (meaning, Cellular/WiFi/Bluetooth are off), then our brains and bodies can rest too. These EMF Naps can also support our social-emotional well-being as well.

Notice: Are you really uncomfortable? Are you more relaxed? Did you sleep better?

On Wednesday November 11, I talked about this on Instagram Live. Check it out in the...

🎉 Home Detox Workbook!

by Sophia Ruan Gushée

 

More than ever, we need to reframe how we view our homes.

Home is an overlooked pillar of health and well-being—able to contribute to our healing physically and emotionally. However, most people are unaware of what science has discovered about how our space can influence our moods, creativity, productivity, health (or illness), and recovery. 

First things first: Let's detox our indoor air, dust, hands, water, and sleep areas from what we...
