Worried about toxins but overwhelmed with where to begin with reducing your exposure to them?

If so, Sophia Gushee can relate.

As a mother living in New York City, Sophia became curious about how living in an industrial city could impact her, her husband, and their children’s health.

When she dove into the research and began taking her own steps towards reducing the toxins in her everyday life, she discovered that transitioning to nontoxic living wasn’t as impossible as it once seemed.

Since then, Sophia has went on to author the critically-acclaimed book A to Z of D-Toxing and has founded her own company, Practical Nontoxic Living, a multimedia company that produces podcasts and incubates the groundbreaking D-Tox Academy, an online portal that makes  practical nontoxic living simple and accessible.

On today’s episode, we learn more about Sophia’s personal journey towards nontoxic living and discussing how pregnant women and new moms can reduce their exposure to toxins in a practical, easy and informed way.
