Part 4 of 4 – How To Reduce Risk

Eating organic food and reducing chemical exposure can reduce your body’s burden of hormone-altering chemicals.  Here are some steps to take:

  1. Eat organic, especially when eating fatty foods, as chemicals tend to store in fat.
  2. Don’t store food or water in plastic.
  3. Do not microwave food or beverages in plastic.
  4. Use the EWG.org app or website to learn more about toxicity in food, water, household, and personal care products.
  5. Use water filters for your shower and bath.
  6. Use phthalate and paraben-free personal care products. Most perfumes contain phthalates, so use essential oils (like vanilla) instead.
  7. Take shoes off at the front door. Wipe your feet outside, then inside, several times.  This removes most of the potentially dangerous chemicals fromthe bottom of your shoes.
  8. Wipe your pet’s paws after they have been outside.
  9. Limit exposure to tea tree and lavender oils during pregnancy and infancy. Although natural substances, there are reports that associate exposure to them to early breast development.
  10. Do daily and more in-depth detoxes on a regular basis to keep cellular housecleaning going.
