This is the one-stop "shop" to edit your life to hack your toxic exposures. Start unburdening your body today! A healthy diet and regular exercise are not the only key pillars of health: toxic exposures is key also.



The "Guts" of the D-Tox Academy

Below are the key components of the D-Tox Academy, which are key sources of toxic exposures.

Detox Your Clean

Did you know that manufacturers of cleaning products are not required to disclose what's in them? Their ingredients are protected as confidential business information. As a result, it is often impossible to know whether they are safe. Start reading product labels and you'll realize how little is revealed. 

This program presents three "lanes" you can follow to detox your clean. This is an excellent program to grow with as you are ready for more change.

Detox Your Personal Care

Ingredients in our personal care products have been found in our blood, urine, breastmilk, and cord blood. Learn how to consider reducing your toxic exposures from your self-care and beauty routines!

This program empowers you with important information, practical tips, and helps you identify changes that you won't mind making!

Detox Your Diet

Diet is a major source of toxic exposures. This program teaches you how to detox your diet of toxic chemicals and heavy metals. 

Detox Your EMFs

Electromagnetic fields (EMFs), another type of indoor air pollution, are created from your wired and wireless products. Modern science is underscoring a precautionary approach, especially for the most vulnerable: our children. This program leads you through a 21-day digital detox. Sophia has distilled 10 years of research into 21 high-impact hacks. 

Detox Your Interior Design

This program can help you select home furnishings that are mindful of your indoor air quality. This is ideal for those looking to: renovate a room (like into a home office or nursery); buy a new sofa, rug, or mattress; re-paint; or edit their stuff to improve their indoor environmental health.

Detox Your Children's Stuff

Children's products can be sources of toxic chemical flame retardants, heavy metals, and other exposures that threaten their biological processes and development. Learn how to be more mindful of reducing your children's unnecessary toxic exposures.
