Would you ever have thought that you were exposed to more pollution in your home than when you are outside? You might think your home is clean but there is more pollution in your home than there is outside. When you are detoxing it’s essential to avoid as many household chemicals as you can.

A typical house contains a witch’s brew of toxic chemicals that get into the air from regular cleaning products, air fresheners, paint, carpets, curtains, furniture and your shoes. The many chemicals in and around your homes wind up in your indoor dust. It’s a frightening thought that during a typical day at home you could breathe in up to 5 times more hazardous chemicals than if you you were outside.

The chemicals that you breath in get into your blood stream where they are eventually circulated to your liver. They then go through the liver detox system which converts them to safer forms that can then be eliminated by your kidneys and through the bile.

Many health experts believe that illness is caused when the body’s ability to detoxify environmental chemicals is overloaded. It makes sense then to avoid as many chemicals as possible when you are detoxing your body.

Check your house for common toxic chemicals and choose safer alternatives with EWG’s checklist for less toxic living:
