Brain-Fog got you down?
Sadly our home furnishings, cleaning products and building materials have become laden with toxic chemicals. This is the default state of most of what we buy these days.
But it doesn't have to be difficult or time consuming to find safer, less toxic alternatives for cleaning supplies, personal care products and even mattresses, bedding and building supplies have come a long way in the last ten years.One of my favorite resources for non-toxic home products is Everyday Roots.

A recent Kaiser Permanente study found that the rate of miscarriage tippled with high radiation exposure in a 900 woman study.If you are trying to get pregnant it is important to know that electromagnetic radiation can affect fertility.
The World health organization puts cellphone radiation in the same class as lead, chloroform and engine exhaust as a potential carcinogen.
