Frequently asked questions:
My parents didn't worry about chemicals in our food and home and I'm fine.
Okay, so first of all, that's not a question. But, there are around 2000 new chemicals introduced into the United States each year. So if you're 35, that's 70 thousand new chemicals since you were born. You want to protect your kids from all that.
Are you just going to scare me with a bunch of dangers I can't control?
I not here to make you paralyzed with fear. That's what a lot of environmental health gurus do, and frankly, it's crappy.
My purpose is to empower you - to tell you what you need to know to avoid chemical dangers. Every section of this course gives you actionable tips, from products you should steer clear of to how to remove existing dangers from your home.
Plus, there are checklists with each module, so you can easily go through your medicine cabinet, your kitchen, your whole home to make changes that will make a lifelong difference in your child's health.
How long do I have access to this course?
You get life-time access to the Toxin-Free Handbook. So any time you have a new question about a product, you can refer back.
Plus, you get automatic access to any updates (and I work hard to keep this course as up-to-date as possible).
Will this Handbook be helpful if I'm pregnant or have a newborn?
Yes! It's great that you're starting to protect your child so early in life.
To help you with this goal, there's a whole BONUS section called Avoiding Toxins for Babies.
What if my kids are already past the baby or toddler stage? Is it too late to keep them safe from toxic chemicals?
While it's true that many toxic chemicals have extra impact on the youngest kids, it's important to realize that every little change you make now will have a life-long impact on your child's health. It's never too late to improve the safety of your child's environment (which I show you exactly how to do with the course checklists).
Can't I just buy all-natural products to keep my family safe?
Unfortunately, just buying “natural” products isn't enough to protect yourself and your kids from toxic chemicals. First off, green-washing is a multi-billion dollar industry, and companies know they'll sell more products if they tell you something is safe even if it isn't.
And just because something is natural doesn't make it safe (as we discuss extensively in the medicine and remedies module).
Couldn't I just get all this info from Youtube or the internet?
I promise, I'm not trying to be a jerk. But I have to be real here: There are people with platforms, using TikTok or Insta to talk about their clean lifestyles who frankly have no clue what they're talking about. I've seen so much horrifyingly wrong information across the interwebs (but no, I'm not going to name names).
Your family's health is worth going to someone you can trust, who has the schooling and training (like a Chemistry and Exposure Science doctorate) to give you accurate advice about chemicals.
Is this info going to be above my head?
Even if you feel like you just barely survived Chemistry at school, you'll have no problem getting through this info. I've laid everything out in an easy-to-understand format, removed all the technical language, and made this handbook interesting and actionable.
And if you decide you just want to jump straight to “Tell me what to do,” you can always go directly to the checklists and the BONUS resource page.
Is it going to be super expensive to make the changes needed to keep my kids safe?
I get it, I have a budget too. That's why I have modules like Food and Cooking, so you'll know when to splurge at Whole Foods, and when cheaper items at your local grocery store will work just fine.
Who are you to be telling me about chemicals?
