Natural healthy lifestyle has immense effect on your health and home. Needless to say, making your home healthier doesn’t have to be expensive, or overwhelming and just a few changes can improve the health of your home, everyone in it — and the planet it sits on.
Some of these are easy fixes. Others challenge us to re-examine a lifetime of habits.
Check your house for common health risk factors, electromagnetic sensitivity symptoms and choose safer alternatives.
1. Reduce your exposure to Electromagnetic Fields (EMF)
There is hardly any secret that reducing the electrosensitivity symptom is the most challenging part of Creating Healthy Home….
So, what’s EMF? Each and every day, your body is exposed to electromagnetic fields (EMF). Cell phones, satellites, radio stations, hair dryers, microwaves, music players, computers, power grids, gaming consoles, and body-worn electronics are all sources of EMF and, over time, we are exposed to a vast amount of these signals. To protect yourself from electro-smog, use EMF protection devices, which can help limit your body’s exposure to EMF and to reduce the electromagnetic sensitivity symptoms as well as its associated risks. As a result, you may feel more energised, focused, or even have a greater sense of well-being.
2. Decrease your home for electric pollution
Electrical pollution, otherwise known as dirty electricity is a term used to describe a type of electrical phenomenon occurring worldwide. Electrical pollution is not something you can see, smell, taste, or touch. It is not something you can sense, making it difficult for one to be aware of the presence of electrical pollution. With this in mind, it is important to understand what causes electrical pollution and what to look for in your everyday environment and home.
Many people complain about a variety of side effects to dirty power, these can include headaches, ringing in the ears, trouble focusing, and a variety of other symptoms.
Electrical pollution can be controlled with special filters.
3. Protect your home from Geopathic Stress and from the effects of electromagnetic radiation
What is Geopathic Stress? Geopathic stress – or harmful earth rays – is natural radiation that rises up through the earth and is distorted by weak electromagnetic fields created by underground streams, certain mineral concentrations and fault lines. The wavelengths of the disturbed natural radiation can seriously affect our health, causing cancer, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME), infertility and miscarriage. While we are asleep, our body should be resting so it can repair body cells, fight infections and absorb nutrients from food. However, if we sleep in an area affected by geopathic stress, our body has to use all its energy just to keep vital organs going. As a result, our immune system becomes weakened, which means that it doesn’t absorb nutrients or fight off infections effectively. We offer different equipment to help you to improve the areas in your house which are affected by geopathic stress or electro pollution. We also offer an independent assessment of your house/office.
4. Improve your Water Quality
If our municipal drinking water were pure, it would still contain chlorine and chlorine by-products. These chemicals have been associated with cardiac concerns as well as linked to increased risk for cancer of the bladder. But there is more than chlorine. There can be dissolved heavy metals in drinking water, from several potential sources, including older fixtures, plumbing pipes, and lead solder, as well as coming in from sources upstream of your home. There can be parasites and bacteria, even bacteria that live in rough areas of your own water pipes and which chlorine does not kill.
Good hydration is vitally important if we are to enjoy optimum health. We believe that drinking alkaline ionised water is beneficial for everyone.
5. Improve your indoor Air Quality
Most people spend as much as 90 percent of their time indoors.
But indoor air quality can be up to five times worse than outdoor air, which can have a very detrimental impact on your health.
Poor indoor air quality can cause or exacerbate:
- Asthma, allergies, and other respiratory problems
- Eye and skin irritations
- Sore throat, colds and flu
- Memory loss, dizziness, fatigue and depression
- Long-term effects from exposure to toxic airborne particles include heart disease, respiratory disease, reproductive disorders, sterility and even cancer.
Whether you want to eliminate impurities in the air (such as pollen, smoke and dust) or want to maintain optimum humidity levels in your home, there are various products to help you do this. Air purifiers can play an important role in improving the air quality in your home and office.
6. Use non-toxic cleaning products.
The conventional cleaning supplies under your sink — with their “warning” and “poison” labels — contain a potent mix of chemicals.
“If you’ve ever mopped with ammonia, you know how your lungs constrict,” says Lunder. “These chemicals have a very powerful effect on kids.
Look for “green” cleaners that don’t contain chlorine or ammonia. Choose ones that say “petroleum-free,” “biodegradable,” or “phosphate-free.”
Or make a cleaning products yourself.
Use vinegar instead of bleach, baking soda to scrub your tiles, and hydrogen peroxide to remove stains.
Vinegar also removes grease and soap buildup.
