Despite our crazy Winter weather, Spring is around the corner and Pohala is welcoming this event with our:
Spring Cleanse: Nutritional Detox and Reboot Class.
This class is filled but that doesn’t mean we can’t share some detox tips with everyone. If you’re not in the class, let us know, and, if there is enough interest we may do another one.
Vera Vos NP will speak on Environmental Toxins:
She tells us:
‘Often, the big question is, why detox? A big reason is to decrease the burden of harmful chemicals in our bodies. But, aren’t there laws that ensure clean and safe water, air, food, etc? If only that were true. There are more than 80,000 registered chemicals in use. About 1600 of these chemicals have been tested for carcinogenicity by the EPA. In 2016 then President Obama amended the 1976 Toxic Substance Control Act which will now require the EPA to study the not yet tested chemicals for safety. Unfortunately, they are only required to study 20 different chemicals at a time and testing must be completed within 7 years. How quickly EPA moves through the testing is definitely dependent on funding and the political climate. So, while the federal government makes it’s ponderous way through 80,000 (minus 1600 already done) chemicals, it’s up to us to educate ourselves regarding what potential toxins we may be coming into contact with.
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) is a non-profit American activist group that specializes in research and advocacy in, among other things, toxic chemicals. Check out their website for an extensive guide to the most toxin free products for your home and personal use. Our homes may be our sanctuary but the air inside can be 2-5 times more polluted than the air outside. There are guides for everything from mattresses to cleaning products to lightbulbs and much more. Here’s to spring cleaning!
