Help Your Home Support Your Wellness
Toxins in your home may contribute to chronic health conditions. Eliminating those toxins will improve your health.

Most people are familiar with particulate toxins like soot. However, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emitted from some carpeting, fabrics, paints, adhesives and furniture. These VOCs are not eliminated by a HEPA filter. Open the windows and air out your home frequently. Add a houseplant in every room to reduce VOCs.

Tap water may be contaminated with lead and chromium. Odorless, taste-free chemicals may not be apparent. Consider a home drip gravity system in your kitchen for your drinking water. Skip the plastic water bottles as well.

Listen as Dr. Robert Brown joins Dr. Susanne Bennett to discuss how you can reduce toxins in your home to improve your health.
