Navigating our Toxic Environment: What are Safe Products?

detoxification snippet

I had the pleasure of being interviewed for Irina’s excellent website, I Read Labels For You, where she helps moms and families navigate the multi-syllabic ingredients in even those products touting the phrases “natural” and “organic.” This is a priceless resource for those interested in mitigating the health impact of our modern-day toxic environment, and I spoke with her about how our interests overlap. I also tried to shed some light on why there are so few doctors sounding the alarm and educating patients in the office:

Read the interview!
