Chemical Sensitivity (aka: To a Healthy and Fragrance Free Future)

Over the years we have become highly sensitive to Perfumes and Fragrances. Scented products that are perceived as pleasant to others can affect us with toxic chemicals and potent VOCs (volatile organic compounds).

Many people don’t realize that the seemingly harmless products they use everyday could be contributing to serious health risks including cancer, central nervous system disorders, autoimmune disorders, kidney damage, asthma, infertility, miscarriage, and child behavior disorders including learning disabilities, mental retardation, hyperactivity and attention deficit disorders. For this reason we request that all participants use Scent Free products while attending workshops or in person coaching sessions.

Please learn more about safe alternatives to the product you use in your home, on or in your body, in your laundry, and around your yard. Your health and the health of your family depends on it.

We also recommend getting the free app from the Environmental Working Group called Healthy Living  which is powered by Food Scores and Skin Deep. Loading it on your smart phone makes it easy to scan barcodes and receive an instantaneous report on the toxicity of ingredients. If you know of other sites to include send me an email.

Creative and Self Care Resources (aka: People and Places I like to visit)

The Painted Self
I had been painting for about about a year when I felt the inspiration to move onto a larger canvas than my 18″x24″ limitation. After months of feeling immobilized, I was grateful to hear about Nan Weed. In addition to being a wonderful artist she offers Intuitive Painting workshops. Nan is an excellent facilitator and a wonderful guide into releasing creative limitations. Attend one of her workshops!
