Is Your Bedroom a Toxic Nightmare?

November 12th, 2014, in Living ToxicFree®, Health Risks

If your bedroom has the level of toxicity that the typical bedroom has—your nighttime routine could include a nice cocktail of pesticides and carcinogenic chemicals.

The truth is, you could be spending up to a third or more of your life sleeping inside this toxic nightmare. If you ever suffer from insomnia, allergies, chronic coughs, headaches, fatigue, achy muscles, stomach issues or other health problems…the chemicals in your bedroom could be contributing to these issues.

Chemicals such as pesticides, and petrochemical bases such as polyurethane foam, fire retardants and VOCS could be lurking inside your mattress.

These chemicals are associated with health problems such as chronic bronchitis, impaired lung function, breathlessness, nausea, vomiting, allergic reactions and insomnia. They are even linked to developmental problems and disorders, infertility, and diseases such as cancer. Shall I keep going?

If you are sleeping on bed sheets that are not organic, every night your body is absorbing an assortment of carcinogenic toxins which could include formaldehyde.

Do we really want to sleep every night wrapped in sheets saturated with dangerous chemicals? In addition to what your skin is absorbing from the bed, what about the air quality filled with these same toxins?

Since we do spend up to a third or more of our lives in the bedroom, this room is an excellent starting place for detoxing. Your body is already overwhelmed with toxic chemical overload throughout the day. When your body goes to sleep it’s in recovery, repair and detox mode. Enhance this time by minimizing exposure to toxins while sleeping—this will maximize your body’s capability to heal.
