Our world is not in balance, nor are we.
Despite our efforts, in this complex age, a positive attitude does not protect from the reality that our bodies & minds, our immune sytem, and our families are being affected by chemicals, pest-/herbicides, indoor molds or mycotoxins, & electromagnetic frequencies (EMF’S) whose presence are ignored or minimized.
We are not separate from what is in and surrounding our homes, workplaces, or schools.
Environmental illness is about the interaction between humans and their environment and the effects on our Health from the world we are creating.
Perhaps our world now justifies going so fast that we don’t treasure and take care of our homes, investing in careful repairs immediately when something goes wrong, or using materials that may be more expensive and resist dampness like plaster.
The choices we’ve been making as a culture have led to some estimates that over 40% of structures in the United States have pathogenic mold and mycotoxins in them.
The Household cleaners we use, furniture we buy, rugs/ carpets we install have poisons affecting our brains, nervous systems, organs, muscles and hormone regulation. Accumulated over a lifetime, the effects lead to documented disease, though perhaps not recognized in the immediate moment of exposure.
These chemicals enter our bodies through food we eat, air we are breathing, water we are drinking, and products we are using in our homes and personal hygiene. They’re stored in our bodies for years, usually in our fat tissue, unless removed through treatment. Some symptoms may be an ongoing fatigue, cold hands and feet, headaches, bloating, food sensitivities, wheezing, or heart palpitations.
