The Healthy Home Project

I’m passionate about healthy homes. Part of living with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease of the thyroid, means that I’ve gotten more sensitive to chemicals, molds, and other toxins that are common in most homes.

According to the EPA, the air inside our homes is two to five times more toxic than the air outdoors.

Even though I had worked in the wellness industry for years, and already ate organic and had a plastic-free kitchen, my journey was only at its beginning. Being a nutritional counselor and health coach, I knew that I wasn’t just taking this journey for myself, but for each one of you who’s health is being attacked in the “safety” of your own home.

 

Here are a few of the topics we will be looking at in the #HealthyHome program.

Mold

Dismissed by many, there are few studies on the health effects of mold. Newer studies and testimonies are saying that we need to look deeper.

Water

Purified water is good, but it’s just the beginning.

Cleaners

Why would anyone use a cleaner that would leave their home more toxic than before they began cleaning?

Bedding

Some of the beds marketed as the healthiest can actually cause a lot of problems for some individuals.

Plastics

We need to know more about hormone & endocrine disruptors like BPA and phthalates in plastics. Not to just know what damaging effects they have on their own, but their effect combined with all of the other toxins we are exposed to.

Air

It’s more than dust. The real problems may be the chemicals we have created.

Fire Retardants

Are they saving lives or destroying lives? The jurey is still out and the answer is really important.

EMFs

EMFs are Electromagnetic Fields created by all electric and wireless devices. There is a lot more research to do for assessing their effect on human health.

Toxins

…there is so much more we need to look into with glues, paints, building materials, furniture, and so much more.

Who are You?

Everyone has a story. Our stories are what color in the details of who we are and how we show up to the world around us, and how we engage with it/them: relationships, jobs, schools, etc. We were all intentionally and intelligently designed to be unique individuals.  When we discover who we are, where we came from, and what we were designed for in this lifetime, we find the freedom in seeing ourselves in our truest identity.  It is in this freedom, our personal story can be expressed organically and experienced by others.

The messages of our stories are often communicated and translated through the ways we impact and interact with the people we are privileged to have in our lives— whether for a short while, or for a lifetime. When we discover who we are and the purpose we were uniquely designed to fulfill, we begin to not only value ourselves, we also begin to value others around us at the same capacity of which we value ourselves. Our intentions, interactions, and impact become more authentic, vulnerable, and hold a greater potential to add life changing value to the lives we are privileged to be a part of.

So how do we begin to discover who we are at our core and what we were designed to live for? Awareness is the first step. Taking an inventory of our character, our morals, our values, our tendencies, patterns, feelings, passions, attitudes, relationships can be key to self discovery. These are the fruit from seeds that have been planted in the soil of our young minds from the moment we were even conceived– unconsciously. Taking a brave trip down memory lane to take a good look at where we’ve historically come from, is another key factor to self discovery. These impactful experiences, whether big or small, manifest in our idiosyncrasies. Some of which would be ideal to change, because we and others around us, deserve them to be changed.

We as humans will inevitably share similarities. The genetic and neurological composition of our individual beings however, are uniquely different. When we take a good look at who we are at our core there is a lot to discover about how intentionally and intelligently we were uniquely designed to be, and the life we were destined to uniquely live; serving the world around us at different capacities and various ways.

Here are some questions to ask yourself…
1. Who are you?
2. Where did you come from?
3. What were your designed for here on earth?
4. How were you created to impact the world around you?
5. What does your unique design have, to solve a problem that exists in the community that surrounds your life?
6. When are you going to venture out into a courageous journey of fully living at your greatest potential and impacting at your optimal?
7. What or who do you need in your life, to make this happen? (I call this, resourcing up!)

Sometimes, we need someone in our corner coming alongside us through the journey of self discovery. For those interested in discovering their truest identity and the possibility of unlocking their greatest potential, connect with me! I’d be happy to be a part of that journey and see you thrive as the best version of yourself!
