Sick House Syndrome: 3 Strategies for a home that may be making you sick

 

Angela Cummings, pictured above, contacted me several months ago because my work really resonated with her. Curious as to why, I invited Angela to share her personal story with toxic exposures. Turns out, her home was making her and her son sick. Read her guest post below because most building materials can challenge our health. It's known as 'sick building syndrome,' or, in Angela's case, 'sick house syndrome.'

In fact, EMFs can cause symptoms of illness in infants, children and adults, particularly those who already experience low immunity.

An EMF detox is something everyone should consider. Using my Detox Your EMFs: The Ultimate 21-Day Digital Detox as guidance, my editorial team...

Can lavendar, basil, and peppermint essential oils repel insects?

insect repellents Jun 20, 2017
 

As a mother of three and a toxic exposures expert, I've been wondering about insect repellents. During our family's spring break vacation, we visited a high-risk area for the Zika virus.

While pregnant women and women of childbearing age are of greatest risk to the Zika virus, Zika can make anyone sick for up to a week with fever, rash, joint pain, red eyes, and other symptoms. The effects of Zika are still being studied so I was also nervous about the unknown, and potential...

EMFs from Appliances in Your Home

 

 

EMF Exposures in the Home

I used to think that EMFs were a concern to those who have certain situations, like living near power lines. I now know that the most common known cause of EMF (electromagnetic frequency) exposure to the average person is the use of cell phones and other wireless devices. Yet, as we endlessly scroll through social media and make countless phone calls to our friends and family, many people are still unaware of the EMF danger levels...

What Are The Current Regulations for EMFs?

emf Jun 15, 2017
 

In the US, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) determines guidelines for radiation from cell phones. Historically, guidelines from radiation exposure were developed to protect from acute injury from thermal effects. Science now shows that we may experience non-thermal adverse effects.

The FCC limit, currently at 1.6 W/Kg, has not been revised since 1996. Since then, mobile devices have proliferated, thereby increasing all of our exposures. For example:

  • There are...

Health Risks from EMF Exposures

 

Reducing your EMF exposures can improve your health both immediately and longer-term. In addition to reducing your risks to the more serious conditions listed below, you may find that you simply feel better.

 

My Experience

I used to interpret chronic symptoms as my "normal," guessing that they were the result of not enough sleep.

After reducing my EMF exposures, I now enjoy improved sleep and energy, less brain fog, improved brain functioning including memory, and fewer strange...

Are EMFs Harmful? What the Experts Say

 

It took me many years to appreciate the concerns surrounding electromagnetic fields (EMFs), which are exposures created from both wired and wireless technologies. But, when you stop to think about it, our lives have never before been so full of them: wired and wireless technologies, and, therefore, EMFs.

 

 

In researching for A to Z of D-Toxing, which is a guidebook I reference to care for my family, I repeatedly encountered concerns about EMFs. The body of...

With the average American spending about 90% of their time indoors, it's important that our homes are healthy environments.

What We Can Learn from The Declining Health of Bees

diet environment Jun 08, 2017

 

Bees are crucial to our food supply. Approximately one-third of our food relies on bees as pollinators, a service that has been valued at $US 168 billion per year worldwide. In the US, bees contribute more than $15 billion to our crop production, according to the USDA.

 

Bee populations are in jeopardy

Starting in late 2006, US beekeepers began reporting alarming losses of bee populations, reporting losses of 30-90%. This emerging, and global, phenomenon became known...
