This is especially crucial now, just after winter when your house has been closed off from the fresh outside air.
It's time to let your home breathe: open your doors and windows to let fresh air in.
Also, it's important to check your furnace filter and change it once every season to make sure you're not recirculating dangerous toxins throughout your home.
Another culprit that could possibly be making you sick? Toxic cleaning products, from dusting sprays to toilet cleaners.
Look for green products that have been certified in order to avoid this risk. You can also make your own cleaning products with simple ingredients found right in your own kitchen.
You should also try to reduce electro-magnetic pollution. This includes radio frequencies, magnetic fields and the wiring in your house. These can all affect your sleep and immune system.
