Are Your Cleaning Products Harming Your Fertility?
Jun 10, 2019
I'm excited to welcome Allison Evans to the podcast.
We're digging into impact of environmental toxins on fertility.
Alison Evans is a co-founder of branch basics and lives in Texas. After coming down with mysterious chronic pain during college that lead her to see the country's best doctors, she finally experienced true healing after moving to the hill country to live with her aunt, Marilee Nelson. There, she lived in an environment free of all toxic chemicals and ate only real, whole foods, and her symptoms completely disappeared. This clean lifestyle also reversed one of the worst cases of PCOS her OB/GYN had ever seen, allowing her to naturally and easily conceive two healthy babies. Allison's healing journey inspired her to co-found branch basics, as she is beyond passionate about helping others experience "the power of pure". Allison loves researching all things holistic parenting, cooking healthy meals, finding clean brands to use and recommend, and helping others navigate their health journeys.

We are exposed to so many toxic products. From the fragrance in our dish soap, to the scented dryer sheets, fragrance plug ins and more.
If you are like me - I really used to think that that "clean" smell from the chemicals - was the only thing that could get my clothes, kitchen, bathroom (you name it!) clean!
Turns out these chemicals are linked to endocrine disrupters that impact both male and female fertility. And the studies prove it:
Women with a history of miscarriage may have up to 300% more of a chemical used in perfumes and cosmetics in their bloodstream than women who have never miscarried. (Human Reproduction Journal)
Two common chemicals found in leather upholstery, carpets, soap, toothpaste, and even baby bottles have been linked to high infertility rates. (American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology)
And after helping 100's of women on the fertility journey - it's one of the last places that we think could be harming us! Whereas in functional medicine - removing the stressor of an environmental toxin - is one of the first places we start!
In this episode you'll learn:
1) Why using non toxic products are so important for our health and fertility.
2) How do we identify a toxic home cleaner? What to look for and how to check your current products.
3) How to detox our home. Plus how to make the switch to non-toxic cleaning products.
