‘Renew You’ Challenge – It seems like every time I read the news there’s a story about dangerous toxins in common household products. And no, I’m not talking about the every-now-and-then products like paint or bug spray, but products you use every day that you probably don’t even suspect—like your shampoo, dish soap, or even lipstick!

So many harmful toxins are hiding in everyday bath and household products that it would impossible to get rid of them all at once, but then again just sitting by and letting them build up in your body isn’t the right choice either. Over time those toxins can take a serious toll on your health! So what’s the answer?

My message has always been that we can’t avoid every toxin, but what we can do is make a few simple changes here and there to reduce our daily exposure. So this week, I want you to replace one or two chemical-laden products in your home or office with a natural alternative.

Believe me, there are so many natural cleaners and personal care items out there today, and they’re not super expensive like you might think. But if cost is an issue, why not try making some of your own products? My Detox Strategy book has some great “recipes” for natural cleaners and homemade bath and body products, so go ahead and get creative! And remember, little steps now can make a big difference in the long run.
