Reducing Toxic Exposure
The modern world we live in exposes us to toxins from our food, water, and air. We inhale them through our nose, absorb them through our skin, and ingest them in the foods we eat. People with IBD, Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis often have a challenging ability to handle all these toxins, resulting from a genetic predisposition to be less efficient at detoxification, nutrient deficiencies, an overburdened system, or excessive exposure to toxins. All of these compromise the body’s natural detoxification pathways. In general, people who develop autoimmune diseases are more sensitive to toxins in our environment.
Here is a list of products that can help relieve the toxic burden you may be exposed to in your household, at work, or when you travel.
SAMINA Sleep System – If Ferrari, Porsche, and Tesla had a bed baby, this is it. Imported from Europe and available for shipment and delivery from California. Friends and mentors have this, I can’t yet afford it but I do have their uniquely designed orthopedic pillow which is better than any pillow I’ve ever slept on. I met Clause and Denise Plumber a few years ago and just in that one meeting I learned so much about the mattress industry and what makes their bed probably the healthiest on the market. Organic mattress, hypo-allergenic, animal and eco-friendly, bed-frame incline options to promote greater healing at night, climate-regulating wool pad topper, EMF-mitigating grounding pad, a unique layering and support system using orthopedic slats that allow your mattress to breathe and for you to enjoy a deep, restful, restorative sleep.

Molekule Air Purifier – Air purifiers removes pollutants from the air you breathe everyday. High air emissions of pollutants has been linked to a 40 percent increase in the rate of IBD hospitalizations. Toxin pollutants in the air could come from nearby vehicle exhaust, off-gassing from mattresses, furniture, pollen, dust, pet dander, mold spores, and smoke. Molekule uses nanotechnology, which outperforms HEPA filters in every category of pollutant from well-known allergens like dust, pollen, and pet dander to microscopic pollutants like mold, viruses, bacteria, and gaseous chemicals. Molekule was designed by a doctor and professor who wanted to reduce his sons allergy-related asthma attacks.
re Ozone concerns: Molekule’s Photo Electrochemical Oxidation (PECO) technology does not generate ozone. In fact, testing at the University of South Florida Clean Energy Research Center has proven the opposite. Researchers were able to observe the degradation of ozone in the testing chamber after only 12 to 18 minutes in each trial. For more information, please visit their White Paper
