Most people don’t realize that how they are feeling or the symptoms they are experiencing are a direct reflection of their environment and not a sign of old age or the fact that they were born with bad genes.
Did you know that the average person spends 90% of their lives indoors? Did you also know that your body is constantly being bombarded by the stressors in your environment? Whether you are absorbing toxic elements through your skin, your lungs the air you breathe, or through exposure to electromagnetic fields, you are a reflection of the environment in which you live. Therefore, where your body dwells is a fundamental factor to your overall health.
By taking an assessment of these environmental stressors that you are exposed to you can reduce the overall burden on your system thereby giving the body an opportunity to “catch up” and return to a state of health. The number one area where we have the most control over our environment is in our own homes.
