Personalized Detox Guide

Rebecca Bearinger

You may realize that harmful chemicals are everywhere in your home, your food, and in your environment. Let’s try to minimize such exposure as much as is reasonable.

About Toothpaste

current toothpaste

Tom's Toothpaste

This toothpaste is pretty good and far better than most others assuming you have the fluoride free version.

The biggest concern in this toothpaste is SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) as it is inflammatory.

A Better toothpaste

Lumineux Oral Essentials

This is an easy to use alternative to the dessert essence toothpaste. We find the Titanium Dioxide to be a low risk inflammatory agent (not inflammatory to most people), but other than that it is very good.

Regrow Tooth Powder

The main downside of this amazing tooth powder, is that it is a tooth powder…

You have to get some non dairy, organic yogurt, and sprinkle the powder onto the yogurt, then brush your teeth with that to get proper effect.

The probiotics in the yogurt help transmit the minerals from this powder into the teeth to strengthen them and even regrow them. It’s really an amazing thing, but not very convenient to use for most people.

About Laundry Detergent

Your Detergent

Tide

Detergent is often overlooked in efforts to detoxify one’s home, however it is surprisingly important to address. Your skin comes in contact with remnants of these chemicals all day long and has measurable absorption rates.
 
Tide has a lot of terrible ingredients, some of which are outlined below:
 
FRAGRANCE
Concern: skin irritation/allergies/damage, acute aquatic toxicity, respiratory effects, biodegradation;
Disclosure Concern:non-specific ingredient

SODIUM POLYACRYLATE

Moderate Concern: biodegradation, acute aquatic toxicity, general systemic/organ effects, skin irritation/allergies/damage, respiratory effects, damage to vision

DISODIUM DIAMINOSTILBENE DISULFONATE
Concern: biodegradation; damage to vision; 
Disclosure Concern: non-specific ingredient
 
PEG-75

Concern: cancer, developmental/endocrine/reproductive effects, damage to DNA, respiratory effects, general systemic/organ effects, nervous system effects, skin irritation/allergies/damage, damage to vision

About Deodorant

Your Deodorant

Dry Idea

Being aluminum based, we recommend you consider switching from this brand. There are all kinds of allergic responses which possibly can happen from aluminum exposure which makes up 16.3% of this product. 

There is some debate which says it can affect mental clarity, increase risk of cancers, cause inflammatory responses of all kinds, interfere with kidneys and performance, but it is hard to say for certain. We however prefer being absolutely cautious and find using an alternative to be a better option than risk.

An Alternative

MAGSOL Deodorant

Skin sensitivity can be a strange experience, and also what people want in a deodorant can be different. Some prefer to stay absolutely dry, while others just want to smell nice. Because every skin responds differently, we cannot know what is ideal for you without you trying it out.

Pretext out of the way, we really like this brand and find it to work well and be the lowest toxicity we can find in a deodorant that actually works.

 

Deodorant / Antiperspirant Additional Notes

Aluminum Free, Paraben Free, Phthalate Free, Stearate Free as a general rule set.

We also prefer to let people sweat as it’s a natural detoxification process of the human body, but sometimes staying dry for work is more important than being your healthiest. 

Again because each person responds so differently to deodorant/antiperspirant mixes, it’s just something you have to explore a bit on your own if our immediate recommendation doesn’t work out for you.

Recommended Tools

Low EMF Sauna

FAR Infrared Sauna

An essential tool for detoxification, the FAR Infrared Sauna has many benefits beyond just detoxifying such as:

Assists Circulation

Relaxation

Fat Loss

Muscle & Joint Pain Relief

Deeper Sleep

Organ Stimulation

The skin is the largest toxin clearing mechanism in the body, and very few tools engage it as well as an Infrared Sauna.

Supplements

Trace Minerals

When using the Infrared Sauna frequently you can get depleted on certain minerals your body needs. We recommend using Trace Minerals in conjuction with the Sauna for maximum benefit and the ability to use the Sauna more frequently.

Equipment

Low Shock Trampoline

We prefer this style of trampoline because of how easy it is on the joints. In order to clear the Lymphatic System you need to use G-Force as it does not have it’s own circulation system. If you can stand and bounce even for 15 to 20 Minutes Per Day, this seemingly simple tool has profound benefits. 

Works best in conjunction with fiber to help sweep away the toxins that have been unsettled with minimal liver burden.

Xenohormone General Insights

Xenoestrogens are one of the leading causes of breast and prostate cancers, as well as disruptors for nearly every system in the body. They can even affect DNA, disrupting the natural formation processes. Removing these toxic products from your house may seem like a lengthy process as they are everywhere, but the more of them you address, the better you will feel.

Once you do so, you’ll be amazed by how quickly your body recovers. A 2016 study conducted by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that the levels of parabens in the blood of teen girls dropped significantly only three days after the subjects switched from conventional cosmetics to natural products.

You can absolutely create big changes in your hormone levels simply by making wiser, more informed decisions as a consumer.
