Brain Toxicity: Eliminating Household Toxins

Little do many of us know that as we sit in the comfort of our homes, we may be silently developing brain toxicity! Yes. 250 pounds per person, per day of toxic chemicals are dumped in the US. In fact, we are surrounded by toxins, to the point that, upon the day of its birth, a newborn baby is born having over 180 toxic chemicals in their body. Toxins can take many forms:

  • Heavy Metals
  • Air Pollution
  • Foods
  • Pesticides
  • And more.

And while nobody expects you to have control over your neighbor’s truck spewing out exhaust fumes, you do have some control over your own home environment. This is your area of agency to lower your body burden and make a huge impact on reducing brain toxicity.

Common Symptoms of Brain Toxicity

The sad truth is that an overwhelming number of toxins you are exposed to, on a daily basis, actually accumulate in your body, putting undue strain on your immune system and ruining functionality on many levels. And, while your skull does provide some serious protection and tries to keep the bad stuff out, it is not impervious to brain toxicity. A leaky gut and leaky brain can cause systemic problems leading to a cascade of events. And while studies show that your brain does detox during sleep, some toxins can stick around for decades without being drained out. Here are some common symptoms indicating you might have toxicity in your brain.

  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Brain Fog
  • Inability to Focus
  • Headaches
  • Numbness or Tingling in Limbs
  • Nausea
  • Memory Loss
  • Poor Balance
  • Mood Swings
  • Anxiety
  • Lower Threshold for Temper Control

The good news is that if you know where to look, you can lower that toxic body burden, reduce your risk of developing an autoimmune condition, and reduce toxicity in your brain, gut, and throughout your body.
