To detox your home there are a number of different things that you can do, especially if you are allergic. Doing all or any of these things will help to prevent indoor allergies.
Indoor allergies are prevalent throughout the community and many allergic people are sensitive to problems in their home environment.
Allergy prevention and the prevention of the reactions of chemical sensitivity is the first step to improve your health in a major way.
There are a number of different ways that you can do this. Read the list below and start at the beginning.
Some of the items on the list are quite simple, but it may be best that you don't do them yourself if you are highly allergic.
Get other people to help you, particularly friends who are not chemically sensitive or allergic. Work your way down through the items on the list to aid you to detox your home.
You may find that your health will improve quite dramatically after you have changed the first couple of things.
If you are still sick, you may have to do more things on the list, and this may depend on what your home is like.
If you have been and had testing some of what you will learn here is already familiar to you.
If your home is reasonably healthy, you may be able to do a number of things to address the most well-known features that may aid you to make a serious difference to your health.
One of the first places you need to detox is the bedroom. My specialist doctor made it very clear to me on my very first appointment, how important a healthy bedroom was.
When you are feeling sick where do you usually go? Because you spend so much time in the bedroom, usually around ten hours a night, it needs to be as safe as you can make it.
Start the process to detox your home in your bedroom, as this may help you to boost your immune system health. A very important part of the process of creating a safe home for allergic and chemically sensitive people is using allergy free bedding.
Allergy is an immune response and differs a bit from multiple chemical sensitivity aka MCS, but both are related to the environment in which you live.
It is also important if you have allergies related to your outdoor environment, such as spring allergy symptoms, that you detox your home so as to ensure that where you live is a safe place to be.
If you do get sick, you can use natural remedies for allergy to help you to improve your health.
Keeping your diet as good as possible is important. A good natural health approach is to keep it free from problem foods, as this is important to help you to cope with the overall load.
Eating organic food can be very helpful, as there may be chemical residues in the non-organic food you eat. Learn the advantages of organic food, and change to organic products where you can.
Work your way down this list, doing each of the things on the list detox your home.
If the item on the list is highlighted with a link this means that there is whole page on the subject, to give you help to do this process more easily.
And there is also a google search box further down the page to help you find more information about anything else you think might be on this site...
There are now more and fragrance free products on the market, so if you are sensitive seek these out.
If you can't find one that you can tolerate, you can solve this issue, by making your own fragrance free homemade laundry detergent.
This is particularly important, as many if not most chemically sensitive people have an allergy or sensitivity to fragrance.
The process to detox your home may seem a little daunting, but it will improve your life dramatically if you start by detoxing the area where you sleep.
Take it a small bite at a time, as it is worth doing. You will find that as you work through the items above you will improve your health in a major way.
As you look through the list, see if there is anything there that can be done more easily and do it. Clearing the clutter will help a lot!
