Ghid pentru o viata non- toxica

Guidelines for Non-Toxic Living
 adapted from

Most Important: Remove shoes before entering house & no indoor/outdoor pets!

1.) Avoid, get rid of, and don’t buy things you can SMELL (scented products too!)
2.) Avoid ALL fabric softeners & dryer sheets
3.) Avoid ALL pesticides, fungicides, herbicides & fertilizers
4.) Use only unscented non-toxic cleaning & personal care products (Miracle II)
5.) Drink and bathe in filtered (no chlorine) water
6.) Eat organic & raw food. Avoid microwaved, processed food & NutraSweet & MSG
7.) Wear only natural fiber clothing: 100% cotton, wool, silk, linen (w/o flame retardant)
8.) Use only natural fiber bedding: same as above (incuding bed if possible)
9.) Avoid: MOLD & New Construction: plastics, particle-board, plywood, glues, inks, paints, foam rubber, vinyl, carpet, synthetic rugs, varnishes, solvents, etc.
10.) Open windows whenever possible & incorporate good air filters & humidity controls
11.) Incorporate healthy houseplants that remove toxins: Philodendrons,  Spider, Aloe Vera, English Ivy, Golden Pothos & Boston Fern  (AND cover soil with 2 inches of “fish tank rocks” to inhibit MOLD)
12.) Move all beds so there’s 3 feet between your head and power outlets or wires with electrical activity per Dr. Klinghardt (Stetzer Filters can help too!)
13.) Minimize use of cell/chordless phones & wireless information transfer-internet
14.)  GIVE AWAY EVERYTHING you don’t NEED! It creates a breeding ground for all the stuff you are trying to eliminate: dust, mold, microbes & is hard to clean!
15.) Start the day with a POSITIVE thought & write it on drinking bottle of water! Eg. I am HEALING today! (Remember: You ARE what you THINK you are!)

“The most  polluted and dangerous air of all is the air you and your loved ones are  breathing every time you go anywhere in your car!”  …Dr Joseph Mercola


General Recommendations:

1. Avoid ALL scented products ("fragrance" as an ingredient) - including all perfumes, colognes, after-shaves, personal-care products, air fresheners, pot-pourri, etc. Be careful about certain "unscented" products that use "masking fragrance" to cover up the original fragrance - these are doubly toxic!
2. Avoid ALL fabric softeners, dryer sheets, Clorox, scented detergents, etc. These products are VERY toxic and very harmful to the environment as well.
3. Avoid ALL pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, and fertilizers. Pesticides are neuro-toxins (affect the central nervous system), and they don't know the difference between the BUGS and YOU! For fleas, roaches, ants, etc., use diatomacious earth, boric acid, and nematodes. You can get these from health food stores and pet supply stores - or from some of the "Resources" listed on the MCS Resources page.
4. Use only non-toxic cleaning products and personal-care products (see below).
5. Drink and bathe in filtered water. Taking a shower in chlorinated water causes the chlorine to go right into your blood stream. You can purchase shower filters that easily attach to your shower nozzle from water-supply stores (check your Yellow Pages) or from many of the mail-order companies listed on the MCS Resources page. Also avoid swimming in chlorinated pools.
6. Eat organic food (food grown without pesticides or fertilizers) as often as possible. Avoid processed foods, foods with colors and dyes, preservatives, etc. NEVER consume products containing "NutraSweet" (aspartame). It breaks down into formic acid ("ant-sting poison") and methanol (wood alcohol) in your body!
7. Wear only natural-fiber clothing (100% cotton, linen, wool, or silk). Make sure the clothes are NOT "permanent press" or "wrinkle resistant" - these clothes have been treated with formaldehyde that does NOT wash out!
8. Use only 100% cotton, wool, or pure silk bed linens and blankets. Avoid "no-iron" or "wrinkle-resistant". A good brand is "Simply Cotton", marketed by "Martex" and available at department stores like Dillards. Wal-mart also now carries 100% cotton "T-shirt" sheets!
9. As much as possible, avoid plastics (store food in glass jars), particle-board, plywood, glues, inks, paints (use Glidden 2000 - least toxic), foam rubber, vinyl, carpet, synthetic rugs, varnishes, solvents, etc.
10. Open your windows as often as possible! Even in the most polluted cities, the outdoor air has been found to be less toxic than the indoor air! Amazing, isn't it?!
11. Certain houseplants are beneficial to remove toxins from the air, such as formaldehyde, benzene etc.  The best plants for removing these and other toxins are philodendrons, spider plants, aloe vera, English ivy, golden pothos, and boston fern.
