You’ve taken measures to clean up your body. In an effort to maintain a toxin-free body you need to think about the environment around you, especially your home. Detoxifying the home usually involves throwing things out—both big and small things.
Dr. Clark recommended the following tasks:
• Get a Freon-free refrigerator
• Fiberglass clean-up
• Clean out the basement and garage
• Clean every room in the house
• Clean your water supply
According to Dr. Clark, “Your refrigerator is the most sinister toxin in your home!” Freon is an odorless refrigerant. That means leaks are often undetected. Because Freon is non-biodegradable, the liver has no chemical reaction with which to detoxify it so it can leave the body. “Healthy people accumulate it in their skin. Sick people accumulate it in their sick organ,” said Dr. Clark. She also found that Freon attracted other fat-soluble toxins like PCBs, metals, and dyes.
So first get any Freon-containing appliances out the house (refrigerators, air conditioners), then purge the Freon from your body. Read about Freon alternatives and how to cleanse the body of Freon in The Cure for All Cancers.
Fiberglass insulation can be toxic to the body. The microscopic bits of glass are blown into the air inside your house, and easily inhaled by you and your loved ones. You may be unaware of any damage but the body reacts to these foreign materials by sequestering them in cysts.
Dr. Clark found the most malignant tumors she studied contained fiberglass or asbestos. So check your dwelling for any uncovered fiberglass and make repairs immediately. Also remove fiberglass jackets from your water heater and fiberglass filters from furnaces and air conditioners.
Basement and garage clean-up
If your have a basement or a garage, chances are these spaces are used for storage. And if they’re attached to your main living area, you risk fumes entering the residence and mixing with the air you breathe.
The best solution is to clear your attached basement and garage of stored toxins such as paint supplies, cleaning agents, automobile fluids, tires, and chemical gardening supplies. It’s best to store these items in a shed or building that is not attached to your house. If this is not an option, be sure to fill any cracks in adjoining walls and any gaps around pipes. And stop using the door between the garage and house to cut down on the flow of toxic fumes.
Clean every room in the house
Next go room by room in your house to get rid of toxins lurking close to you on a daily basis. According the Dr. Clark, this means removing the majority of inedible things that have a scent (cleaners, candles, air fresheners, markers, glues/adhesives, perfumes/colognes, household insecticides). You can keep distilled white vinegar, borax, and non-toxic personal care items in the house—these are natural and safe.
Be cautious of new furniture and clothing that can give off formaldehyde fumes. Clean sufficiently before use.
Clean your water supply
Lastly, clean up the household water supply. If you have copper pipes, you’re drinking and absorbing (through bathing) traces of copper that can accumulate and contribute to poor health. Change your metal pipes to PVC (no PVC leaching after 3 weeks). Invest in a water filtration system to remove harmful chlorine and fluoride from your water.
