Keep A Non-Toxic Home While Fighting Off Colds and Flu

January 11, 2011

Did you know that common exposures to toxic chemicals in your everyday life can actually increase your chances of becoming sick?

When bacteria and viruses encounter a strong immune system, the immune system recognizes the bacteria or virus as a foreign invader and fights them off. But when the body’s immune system is compromised, it cannot do its job of protecting us against the bacteria and viruses that can make us sick.

Our immune systems are exposed to so many toxic chemicals that weaken its ability to defend the health of our bodies. Plastics, pesticides, and pollutants of all kinds are in most consumer products, and virtually all of these chemicals can damage the immune system, leaving our bodies vulnerable to attack.

There are so many toxic exposures in our homes today.  These toxic chemicals are known as "immunotoxicants" and cause increased incidence or severity of infectious diseases. 

Removing immunotoxicants from your home will do even more than stop colds and flus, it will protect you and your family from contagious diseases, including bronchitis, pneumonia, diarrhea, measles, mumps, whooping cough, and others. Removing immuntoxins from your home also allows your immune system to regenerate naturally and fight off infectious diseases.

If you have children or pets in your home, it is important to reduce their exposure to toxic chemicals.  A child’s immune system is not fully developed until age seven or eight.

Every step you can take towards removing toxic chemicals in your home will greatly improve your health. Begin today!
