Better Air Means Better Health: Enhance Your Immunity by Improving Indoor Air Quality
By Marilee Nelson |
This time of crisis has shone a bright light on our need, more than ever, to address the air quality in our homes and businesses. Indoor air quality impacts our health in more ways than we realize, and focusing on better air quality will mean better health for the entire household. The EPA estimates indoor air may be 2 to 500 times more contaminated than outdoor air; and up to 1000 times if you’ve just cleaned your home using chemical products. With that in mind, the EPA has named indoor air quality as one of the top health threats to American families.
In a New York Times article dated March 27, 2020 titled: “Now Is the Time to Take Care of Your Lungs. Here’s How”2, the Times state that increased exposure to chemicals/pollution in our outdoor and indoor air impacts our immune system and increases our susceptibility to infection. And what are millions of well-meaning people doing to try and “be safe” right now? Over-using the very chemical-based disinfectant cleaners that are polluting their indoor air and thus, compromising their health.
Bottom line: products with harmful chemicals that pollute our homes are immune stressors and actually make us more vulnerable to disease and contagious illnesses.
#TossTheToxins To Transform Your Indoor Air Quality and Boost Immunity
Most Americans have materials and products throughout their homes that contain, unbeknownst to them, harmful chemicals. They lurk in closets, drawers, cabinets, under sinks, and attached garages. These immune stressors create a low level chemical soup that pollutes the air continuously, especially if ventilation is poor or windows are not open often.
Removing toxins from your home is the cheapest, fastest, and most dramatic way to reduce indoor pollution and improve air quality.
We invite you to take this time of crisis as an amazing opportunity to #TossTheToxins and start creating a truly healthy home. This is a simple, step by step process that could radically improve the health and immunity of your family. We just don’t realize how much these products impact our mental, physical and emotional wellbeing until we completely remove them. Improving your home’s air quality with this process is a great way to take proactive preventative care of your family’s health without making any major dietary or lifestyle changes. Let’s unite and create a healthy home revolution in America family by family.
