Today’s episode is so exciting brown women, we’re going to talk about something that you would have never thought was causing inflammation. And it’s right there in your house. Today we’re going to talk about your detergent is your detergent toxic. Ah, stay tuned and find out more. Hey brown beauties Welcome to live in inflammation free with me andretta. Robinson, your functional nutrition health coach,

and I’m Aaqila Harvey,

we are Your mother daughter hosts bringing two different generations together bi weekly to give you easy actionable steps to help rid your body of chronic inflammation. Hey, hey, hey, brown babes. andretta here, Messiah, Kika be here shortly. She’s running a little bit behind, and we want to hold up production. So we’re gonna get started today, because I have a lot to say about our subject matter. Because who would ever thought that your household detergent could cause inflammation in your body? Because who thinks about it? I mean, you go to the store, and you some people just grabbed the least expensive detergent on the shelf. Some people I’ve seen people in the stores actually reading labels or people with, you know, sensitive skin, you know, they made that sensitive skin version, you know, and then when you go to the store, now, you know, you only see about two or three brands. And they they are under disguise of other names. And they all owned by the same company. But you may see those same brands. Well, today, we’re going to talk about some detergents that are not toxic, and we’re going to talk about why they’re toxic. So you may not realize how many problems your detergent has been secretly causing you and your family until you upgrade, you know, to toxic free detergents. So how does it attentional work? It works by removing the dirt and stains and odors from your clothing and other fabrics, you know, with a combination of chemical and mechanical processes. So you know you just most people just want their detergent to work. You know, just get the dirt out. And if you got boys oh my god, you want to get dirt and odors. I remember my brothers my mother. She relied on tie tied had her sold. I had two brothers that did nothing but play sports. I could smell their clothes from the laundry room. Okay, so she would throw in Thai but she also would throw in peroxide in the inside there as well. And then one time I thought I smelled some ammonia. No, I was like, Mom, what’s going on here? She’s like, it’s bad. It’s bad. So we really, really, really just want to touch instead of going to remove dirt and stain and odors. So we just want them to work. But did you ever stop to think about what ingredients are in your laundry detergent? Have you ever thought about how they could be making you and your family sick? Because they contain chemicals that can be toxic and inflammatory to humans. Here are some examples of what’s in your detergent, phosphates. Most and many detergents contain phosphates which cause harmful algal blooms. So it actually also phosphates and you’ve heard of it if you took your chemical class you remember they used to talk about phosphates, they just very harmful some of them are and then they also contain fragrances Now you would think okay, a fragrance How can a fragrance harm Mike harm me? Well, a lot of them have chemicals in them that are irritating to your skin, which irritates your respiratory system. Remember what you put on your body goes through your skin and goes into your blood. Okay, so then I want you to think about enzymes. Some laundry detergents contain enzymes it can be irritating to the skin and respiratory system, particularly for those who got asthma or allergies. So you got asthma allergies, did I forget to turn my phone off here? I believe I did. I’m gonna take a pause here for one second and turn off this phone. This is live. But you know what is real life? Right? Real life we leave our phones on. So I’m going to turn this off so it will not be interrupting us. Okay, there we go. Now, also sodium lauryl, sulfite, this very common to find in detergents to again, irritating your skin, your eyes and your respiratory system. And then you know who don’t want their clothes to be bright we all do. So now they’ve got these dyes and optical brighteners now they don’t have no cleaning power, but they act like a fluorescent whitening agent and they are designed to brighten your clothes you know masking that yellow of the plastic and clothing fibers so they also include those Ingredients in your detergent. So why is it best to avoid them? Many of them contain chemical substances. One of them is called Ben zine which is totally unacceptable according to the experts, it actually represents benzene represents an elevated risk and cancer and also can disrupt your reproductive system. Hello, women trying to have babies you wonder why. And we’re gonna talk about bleach now if you are in the black household, you got some bleach somewhere, you know, we live and die and swear by some bleach. I mean, I don’t think I stopped using bleach until I became I was an adult and I’m talking to a much much older adult, okay, because my mom and dad had me believing and if you didn’t put no bleach on it, it wouldn’t clean. Well, bleach is highly toxic, and it’s corrosive. Have you ever combined bleach with another chemical and just hope you did, because you actually me, bleach is so toxic. If you ever put bleach and combine it with certain things like ammonia, I’ve seen people combine it, and they can’t even stay in the room. I’ll be honest with you, I don’t even keep it in the house. I think I have a small bottle of bleach in my garage because I don’t know. I don’t know, because I think I’m supposed to have bleach but it’s highly toxic, it causes so many problems. It makes your skin itchy, you know how you get in and out of the pool. And sometimes you know, they have that chlorine bleach in your in the pools and you get out and you start scratching. It’s the same thing you know, so now it’s going through your blood, it irritates your skin. And we’re not gonna even talk about that irreparable damage to marine life. Okay, but these are carcinogenic products, and they are all in detergents. There’s another ingredient in there called one four, dioxane, dioxane or something like that. I may be saying it wrong. If Keila was here, she would love to correct me. But it’s a carcinogenic byproduct of the way they manufacture laundry detergent ingredients. So you if you turn over the buyback of your detergent, you probably will see some of these items, I’m pretty sure. That’s why it’s important to read labels. And don’t just grab the front billboard, I call that front product of every product, the billboard. And so the back of it is where you want to concentrate. So it’s important to read it. So why should you switch to a non toxic laundry detergent? And will it get your clothes clean? I mean, you want fresh towels, you want that fresh and clean? Feel, you know, but do you want to coat them with those synthetic chemicals that could potentially cause problems for you and your loved ones? Over time? No, we want real good smelling great smelling nontoxic laundry detergent brands. I’m gonna give you some to look for are they going to be on your grocery store shelf? Probably not. Okay, you’re probably going to have to go online, you probably can find a lot of them on our good old friend Amazon website. So why not choose a safer bet. So we did some research. And I’m going to tell you some brands that are recommended for the best non toxic detox detergents. And when I give you some now I’m gonna tell you what I use. I love Melaleuca what is that Melaleuca and it’s spelled and we’ll have it in the show notes. Let me mess up the spelling I think is MELAL. You see a is a brand that you have to have. It’s a multi level marketing of course you know I’m not part of no I don’t have time for multi level marketing, but I do buy it my detergent every month is delivered to my front door. And it is one of the greatest brands I’ve had. There is one you’ll also see on the shelf now called free and clear. is a very popular laundry detergent brand. And because the name is free and clear, you think I’m getting a good detergent. No, not not.

It’s been linked to everything from allergies and dry skin all the way to cancer. You’ve seen free and clear I know you’ve seen it I think is owned by tide too. But it’s got chemicals in it don’t fall for the Okey doke don’t fall for that name, the billboard free and clear. So anyway, let me continue on I want to tell you some more of these detergents that you can buy besides Melaleuca what you can do is go to melaleuca.com and you will find it. But I’m gonna give you some more that we’ve researched, recommended brands that are down better for you, you know, because we don’t want you to have organ damage and all those other things. So here’s one branch basics. Now let me tell you about branch basics. I have some of that in my house as well. They send you what you gotta get, you’re gonna get a liquid. It is the same liquid that’s used for everything you can wash your dishes with it, you can wash your clothes with it, I noticed what I said to when I first got it. I was like, Are you serious, but let me tell you something, it comes concentrated, and you just make the strip whatever you would like for it to be. And then they have a powder if you need extra strength, what branch basics. I’ve had my branch basics now for almost six months, because it’s so concentrated you the cost savings and buying it and putting it in the bottles for spraying it to clean and also to wash your clothes with is phenomenal. Phenomenal. You save so much money by buying it and diluting it yourself. And it doesn’t have a fragrance is clean. Excuse me. If you want to smell good smelling one, you need one call attitude. Attitude, if you just look for the smell because you know some people when they take the closer they just want that smell. If you want to get one as unscented and fragrance free to besides branch basics, you got grab green, grab green again, we’re gonna have all these in our show notes. So you’ll be able to go find them. And then if you know if you are conscious of of the waste, and plastic blue land is a good one. It comes in a little small pouch, so it doesn’t even have plastic, but it’s good for people who are conscious of the ecosystem. And then of course, the most affordable. And I’ve told you guys about Thrive Market before Thrive Market is an online shop where you can go and find a whole I mean way cheaper than Whole Foods or any of these health stores out here. Thrive Market is cheaper. It comes quickly. They have about they have a brand called Rosie. It’s nice you like it. Now if you just want something organic because sometimes I wanted just a pure organic line, there’s one called Happy Earth. The best laundry power powder I’m sorry, is malaria. Then you know some of y’all like pause, you know, I’m not a big pot fan, because again, I’m trying to get rid of this plastic. But there is one that doesn’t contain chemicals. Excuse me, pardon me, it’s called drops. And then if you still use a laundry sheets, which you shouldn’t be using, because I know y’all heard it on the news about how the laundry sheets, especially the ones you put in the dryer contain a chemical that gets on the clothes that is carcinogenic and can cause cancer. So if you still doing that, stop it. But here’s an alternative if you want sheets, because some people just like sheets, it’s called Eco roots. Eco roots is organic, no toxic ingredients. And if you gotta have sheets, that’s the one you want to use. Now if you got boys, and you know you like none of this is gonna work for me, I need something that’s gonna be tough. There’s one called Dirty labs. Again, dirty labs can get rid of all that sweat and odors and have tough things. And if you got a baby don’t fall for that one on the shelf that says babies by the way, no call no names, but don’t fall for it. But there is one that you can find online call healthy baby. Beautiful, non toxic baby get your baby’s clothes clean and smelling good. Again, it’s called healthy baby. And then we got Molly says you’ve probably seen Molly Sud is for those delicate you know, if you really got you know, weak sometimes we got to wash our delicate little delicate so Molly says it’s good for that. And if you’re like me and you got hard water because I live in an area where the water is so hard that sometimes even these beautiful brands that I’ve mentioned don’t work. There’s a brand called truly free, truly free cups concentrated. And again, you take it and you can you know stretch it out but it will work beautifully at and hardware. So all those brands I just gave you truly free and all those online, I know you’re not going to find them on your grocery store shelf. I’m just gonna be honest with you. However, if you are a Tarjay fan and y’all know who I’m talking about talking about target, they actually have one on the shelf called nine elements. Okay, so you can go to Target and find your toxic free detergent as noninflammatory call nine the number Nine to letter nine. I mean number nine elements. And then Walmart got one too. Yeah, yeah, I know you’re still shopping at Walmart go is called go by green shield organic, go by green shield. So those brands are the safest natural detergent brands that actually work. Now all that may be overwhelming, but there’s no shortage of, of natural, non toxic, great smelling laundry search soaps and detergents on the market. So find them, use them. And tell us about it.

Claudia / Women & Recovery

Claudia is at the coffee shop today discussing recovery and specific challenges it presents for women. Recovery is a hard road to navigate and it takes intense focus. Itโ€™s a selfish program. For women who have been taught their whole life to give – to families, to children, to spouses – itโ€™s hard to shut down that part and focus on themselves.ย 

Not only are there challenges to giving up the obsession with alcohol – but also navigating relationships, trying to fight stuff thatโ€™s not good for you (codependency, toxic behaviors) and the emotional aspects of why we chose to drink. There is a strong connectivity to emotional sobriety. For Claudia, it’s been a real challenge. Listen in as she shares her experiences with Mike and Glenn.
