Detoxify Your Home

Toxic house
Sick house

Sick houses often create ill people.


Our homes become "home" to about 80,000 chemicals, of which less than 20% have been tested on human health, and may be linked to Alzheimers, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinsons. Our buildings are increasingly air-tight and thus do not "flush" out these chemicals and natural toxins.


Toxins in homes account for 90% of all reported poisonings each year in the U.S.


Indoor air pollution is responsible for the death of 1.6 million people every year, according to the World Health Organization.


Asthma is one possible indication of a sick environment. Others may include headaches, frequent colds, tiredness, other bronchial ailments, lack of appetite, poor sleep, sleep apnea, a colicky baby, and more.


Headaches, breathing problems, chest pain and more can all be signs of indoor air pollution. Try getting outdoors, and/or opening windows more often (at least a couple of times a day) to see if this reduces your symptoms. Read more about indoor air quality.


Conditions that negatively impact our health, however mildly or severely, include house dust, dust mite feces, mould (mold), common household cleansers, “air fresheners”, anti-bacterial and other liquid soaps, dryer sheets, and high humidity levels.


Since we spend about 90% of our lives indoors it is crucial that we have homes and workplaces that are healthy, especially for children and seniors.  See our section on solutions for some ideas on how to improve your health.


We will work with you to create better environments in which to live, work and play. For the sake of your health, act now.


To your health!





Residue of popular herbicide likely encourages illness


A chemical and food company wants us to believe that glysophate, a widely-used herbicide, is not only safe -it might be used to treat cancer!


How profitable, as it may also increase your risk for cancer.


Glysophate is considered to be toxic to animals, including humans. A study by two independent scientists, published in Entropy April 2013, connects the increasingly widespread use of glyphosate with modern diseases because of its "inhibition of cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes, an overlooked component of its toxicity to mammals. CYP enzymes play crucial roles in biology, one of which is to detoxify xenobiotics. Thus, glyphosate enhances the damaging effects of other food borne chemical residues and environmental toxins."


In other words, it slowly induces disease.


"Consequences are most of the diseases and conditions associated with a Western diet, which include gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease."


A copy of the whole report can be found under the link GMO's.


Conclusion: only eat organically grown food or foods known not to have been sprayed with Round-up Ready herbicide. Consider also helping your cells to repair from this damage by using Asea.






Ending the Junk Food Obsession

We all know that smoking tobacco is bad for our health. With both public pressure and far higher taxes, smoking is (thankfully) on the decline in Canada.


Now we are facing the crushing health effects of junk food and beverages. These are filled with bad fats, sugar, and salt -plus colorants in soft drinks. The results are alarming: rapidly rising rates of obsity, diabetes, heart conditions, cancer, and far more. Our health care system can't keep up. It turns out that a tobacco company is the largest junk food company! Even the most ardent libertarian (who dislikes government intervention in our lives) may have to concede that doing nothing about this epidemic is harming all of us.


Thus we may have to do the same thing with junk food and drinks as we did with tobacco: apply social pressure as well as add taxes. We know that banning didn't work with alcohol (and isn't working with street drugs). At least taxing these ills will raise money needed to pay for the freedom to eat and drink ourselves into oblivion. For more information read this Globe & Mail article.
