A question came up recently on our other blog (http://thebrandwellnesscenter..com/apps/blog/) about detoxifying our homes. I thought it best to answer it here since us Indigos are highly sensitive to our environment.
Sick building syndrome is not just for people who work in poorly ventilated office buildings. According to the World Health Organization, up to 30% of new and remodeled buildings worldwide may be linked to this syndrome. But it is also present in older buildings as well.
It usually comes down to flaws in heating, ventilation or air conditioning. Other contributing factors include the outgassing of volatile organic compounds (VOC) like formaldehyde and plastics from new construction materials (new carpeting is really bad), or mold or inordinate amounts of dust, dirt and animal hairs.
Since moving from your home may be impossible, here is a check list of what you can do to lessen the toxicity in your home:
· Keep your house as clean as possible. Dust and vacuum daily. Change the bed linens at least twice a week. Remove all carpeting. Not only does carpeting outgas, it also collects tons of dirt in the microfibers that you are breathing in constantly. Adverse health effects suffered by carpet installers are a clear-cut way to see the hazards of this product. Most documented are neurological problems and higher rates of cancer. If you must have carpet, make sure that it is as natural as possible.
· Use natural cleaners. Replace chemical cleaners with essential oils, baking soda and vinegar. Tea tree oil is especially effective at removing mold and mildew. Baking soda acts as an abrasive to remove stains and residue from glass, ceramic and stainless steel. You can add a few drops of water to make a paste to clean the stove, sink, tub or toilet. White vinegar is excellent as a window and mirror cleaner. Add your favorite essential oil if you want a pleasant smell.
As a side note to this, you should avoid all artificially fragranced products: air fresheners, household cleaners, detergents. Unscented may very well be a highly processed product. It takes a lot of chemicals to mask a smell, so fragrance-free anything may be full of toxic chemicals. Fluffer sheets used in the dryer can be more toxic than your detergent. Use the silicone dryer balls instead. Plus it is much more cost effective, as they have an infinite reusable lifespan.
· Remove plastic from your eating arsenal. If you have any plastic dishes or cups, throw them out. Bis phenyl A (BPA) is a known xenoestrogen and will affect the hormone balance of your body. Besides its known carcinogenic effect, it will also create imbalance within your endocrine system and ultimately affect mental and physical development. (See other blog De-Plasticizing You! http://thebrandwellnesscenter.com/apps/blog/show/10414430-de-plasticizing-you-)
Leaking of bis phenyl A into your water from plastic bottles has already been documented. And the longer the water has been in the bottle, the more BPA you will be ingesting.
· Do not use the microwave. Microwave ovens are radiation ovens. When you say it like that, the reality of this machine is clear. The microwave radiation distorts the molecular structure of the foods; it destroys much of the nutrients and causes many problems with the immune system. If you value your health, take the extra couple of minutes to heat the food up the right way.
· Limit cell phone and cordless phone use. These phones expose us to a form of electromagnetic radiation (EMF) energy. An analysis of the most rigorous studies found convincing evidence linking the use of handheld phones to brain tumors, especially in users of a decade or longer. In addition to this, we know personally of people who feel physically ill when using the cell phone. It affects brainwaves. Period. Use it sparingly and stick to the land line (NOT cordless) as much as possible. Buy an EMF protector and install it on your cell phone.
· Limit computer use. Besides the obvious eye and wrist strain, there is a generating of EMFs. (Invisible Toxins http/thebrandwellnesscenter.com/apps/blog/show/5696653-invisible-toxins).
· Nobody would sit at a desk under high voltage power lines. Yet we will happily sit a foot away from a computer screen, with a computer and printer on the desk next to us, and perhaps even a power supply near our feet. The old box-shaped cathode-ray tube (CRT) computer monitors generally have quite high levels of radiation. Best to invest in a flat screen monitor. And of course EMF protectors are essential.
· Limit television watching or better yet, remove it completely from the home. Research shows that your brain literally shifts into a passive state when you’re watching television. Experiencing "brain fog” is not uncommon. Your alpha brain waves increase after television exposure. Alpha waves are commonly associated with a relaxed meditative state as well as brain states associated with suggestibility. Too much time spent in the low alpha wave state caused by TV can cause unfocussed daydreaming and inability to concentrate.
· Remove electronics from the bedroom, especially TV, computers and radio alarm clocks. Again they release a continual dose of EMFs. Iif they must be present, then they should be as far away from your head as possible when sleeping and as close to the floor as possible.
· Remove your shoes before coming into your home. Tracking in dirt and germs from outside into the home should be avoided.
· Discard all aluminum or Teflon based cookware. Aluminum will leach into your food. It is a known neurotoxin, causing brain degeneration. Teflon or stick free cookware will eventually chip and enter your food. Better to use high quality stainless steel, cast iron or titanium.
· Do not use aluminum or plastic wrap on foods. And definitely do not microwave anything in or covered with plastic. (Our personal story on plastic toxicity: BPA: A Real Life Case Study http/thebrandwellnesscenter.com/apps/blog/show/9927863-bpa-a-real-life-case-study-celeste-s-story)
· Invest in an air purifier and negative ionizer to eliminate air borne toxins – mold spores, dust, cigarette smoke, pet hair, hydrocarbon toxins and remnants of chemtrails from outside that we may be carrying into our homes.
· Invest in a water purifier. City water is loaded with chemicals to make it potable. We have a double carbon and alumina filter installed under our sink. You may need a plumber to install it, but it isdefinitely worth the expense. Not only does the water taste cleaner, but you are actually getting quality water that will help your body detoxify properly, instead of poisoning it even more. Other options include fresh spring or well water, reverse osmosis or a water distiller.
· Remove fluoride from your intake. This includes toothpastes, mouthwashes, fluoride rinses and municipal drinking water. It is an endocrine disruptor and totally inactivates your pineal gland. The pineal gland is so important in developing Third Eye intuitive abilities as well as regulating melatonin production (important for proper sleep).
By integrating just one of these techniques into your home and maintaining it, your life will change for the better dramatically. The ability to think clearly and sleep better should be obvious within a few weeks, if not sooner. Prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. Get started today. Your home is your sanctuary. It is up to you to maintain it.

So how do heavy metals affect our young sensitive children? Usually through a diagnosis that says your child is not "normal". Diagnoses such as Autism, Asperger’s, ADD, ADHD, Learning disabled, Depression, Bipolar disorder, PDD-NOS, Anxiety and Tremors are the most common.
The vast neurological symptoms that occur in children exposed to mercury are: decreased eye contact, repeating certain actions over and over again, not responding to their name, not looking at an object that is being pointed at by another, poor concentration or attention and sensitivity to sensory stimulation.
Common language or speech symptoms of mercury poisoning: loss of speech, delayed speech, decreased understanding and articulating words, remembering only certain words. Also common are social problems such as withdrawal, being irritated, aggressive behavior, moodswings, night terrors and other sleep problems. In addition, other symptoms include auto-immune disorders such as multiple sclerosis, juvenile diabetes, asthma, chronic ear infections, and decreased immunity.
Of course, it must be recognized that heavy metal toxicity is not the only cause of all of these disorders. However, it can be said that mercury may be an original trigger and can set off all of these syndromes. Therefore, if these symptoms are present, it is logical to check for the presence of mercury and all heavy metals. And we should bear in mind that the toxic load of heavy metals is cumulutive. So that beautiful healthy young child may be a very different person later in their childhood due to the accumulation of toxins throughout the years.
Today’s children are not like you and me. They are physically more sensitive to the environment than we were as children. And when their physical self is out of balance, then their mental and emotional fields will follow. They are born with a sixth sense that can easily get turned off or overloaded, and this will then manifest in so many diverse symptoms.
So if you are an Indigo that is out of balance, now would be the ideal time to rule out heavy metal toxicity as the culprit for your challenges. Do the right thing. Get the simple 24 hour urine Heavy Metal Toxicity test and learn if this is the cause of your health challenges.
Knowledge is potential power. Use this knowledge and live up to your full potental.

Heavy metal toxicity in today’s society is rampant. As a practicing dentist for 30 years, and as a holistic educator, I can honestly say that heavy metals are probably the number one contributor to chronic neurological health diseases on the physical and mental planes. This includes but is not limited to Autism, Alzheimers, Parkinsons and Multiple Sclerosis.
Mercury poisoning has been implicated in a host of chronic symptoms of dis-ease, so it might be a good eye opener to have a look at this website http/www.mercurypoisoned.com/symptoms.html to see if any of the mercury toxicity symptoms resonate with you.
You may be wondering how you or your Indigo child could possibly have gotten into this situation. It is very easy when you understand that mercury is present in many products that we are exposed to routinely.
You remember all those tuna fish sandwiches you ate as a kid ?–toxic mercury (environmental). Or how about the 22 or so vaccines that you were exposed to in the first 6 years of your life ? - toxic mercury (preservative). Or the pretty silver fillings in your mouth ? - toxic mercury.
And if you yourself don’t have those silver mercury fillings, how about your mother who carried you for 9 months in utero. Mercury does pass through the placental barrier. That would certainly be enough to get your system exposed to a high loading dose of mercury. And as you grew up, and made your regular checkups for immunizations, your exposure only increased, augmenting the toxic load. The cumulative amount of mercury being given to children in the average number of vaccines by age 6, would be an amount equivalent to 187 times the EPA daily exposure limit!!!!
And knowing now what you didn’t know before you read this BLOG, you need to take action. If you are an Indigo child or the parent of an Indigo child, and you have been diagnosed with a physical or mental disorder, or if you just don’t feel right most of the time, I would highly recommend that you be tested for heavy metal toxicity. It is a simple non-invasive urine test that is easily done at any competent physician’s office.
And what do you do now? Now that you have been labeled with an “incurable” illness? Now that you need to be medicated for life to be “normal”?
THERE IS NO ILLNESS CAUSED BY A DEFICIENCY OF ANY DRUG.
Yes, that needs repeating.
THERE IS NO ILLNESS CAUSED BY A DEFICIENCY OF ANY DRUG.
When you realize this and truly believe it, you can begin to heal. You are perfection already. You are only out of balance. If you shift to this new paradigm of thinking, the healing will begin.
More to come.
