If you live in the Los Angeles area you might be concerned with the quality of the air you and your family breathe.
Unfortunately, there’s no feasible way to completely cut toxins out of your life, but you can significantly cut down your exposure by taking a few simple measures — and it’s worth it! After all, up to this point you’ve come into contact with toxins everywhere, all the time, every day! Though there’s toxins in industrial foods and cleaners, there’s more to it than that:
The air you breathe is often tainted with car exhaust, paint fumes, and chemicals (like aerosol room fresheners), among other chemicals that build up in our systems over time.
I know it sounds overwhelming. It is overwhelming!
Just remember, by making small, realistic changes toward eliminating toxins from your life and body, you’ll be on your way to feeling healthier, and to getting toxins out of your life and out of your body. When it comes to air here are some good places to start:
- Air Duct Cleaning of your heating and air conditioning unit and duct system. This will eliminate all the old dust, dirt, mold, toxins that have built up inside your air system. Choose an experienced, professional company, such as Fresh Aire Duct Cleaning, who has the expertise to clean out the system thoroughly; and whose specialized cleaning process scrubs deep down the inside of every duct throughout the entire home or office.
- Additionally, consider investing in an air filter. You can buy HEPA air filters at most stores, which will minimize new dirt from getting into the system; and allergens and many toxins from the air in your home or your office.
- Or, grow your own air filter. For an inexpensive option, houseplants can help remove pollution from the air that you breathe (and they look great while they do it!).
When it comes to eliminating toxins, small changes in your lifestyle can make all the difference. The fruits of your labor are a longer, healthier life— I don’t know about you, but that’s pretty worth the effort to me!
