In this episode, Maggie opens the show explaining how environmental checkups work. When Maggie gets a new client, one of the first things she does is go through the six environmental stressors. The six stressors are air, water, light, sound, EMF, and food. Maggie gives tips on preventing stress in each of these categories:

  • Air
    • Focus on getting outside into nature as much as possible.
    • You have to optimize your home! Make sure that your air is circulating by opening your windows.
    • Air purifiers are fantastic! Specifically, Maggie recommends EnviroKlenz.
    • Make sure that you are changing your filters every couple of months.
  • Water
    • A lot of clients think they are drinking healthy water when they have a refrigerator filter system. The truth is, those systems do not work that well. Instead, Maggie says to look for a reverse osmosis water system – it will add back the good minerals to your water.
    • Maggie recommends using either Aquasana or Home Master for your filter needs.
    • Get some sort of shower head filter to prevent contaminants from the water.
  • Light
    • If you are struggling with diabetes, get outside, and actually see the natural sun at least three times a day.
    • Do not get bright LED lights.
    • In the evening, make sure you have some amber tone lights.
  • Sound
    • Give yourself some time where there is no sound. Your body is interpreting sound all day every day, so it will need quiet time to recharge.
  • EMF
    • EMF is like microwave radiation in your body. The good news, it’s an easy fix.
    • Make sure your phone is an arm’s length away. Another thing you can do is put it in airplane mode.
    • Do no
