The work of my guest today — Genevieve White — is so important! She’s a Health Coach with a focus on environmental medicine. 

It’s common, but not normal to be affected by our environment. So how do we help people recognize the things that are in their home that are filling up their cup faster than they should be? Environmental exposure is not just about its implications and chronic disease, but about the toxicity that we hold as a result of our environment! It’s often the reason for thyroid conditions, why we can’t lose weight and can impede us from feeling at our best all of the time. 

In today’s conversation, Genevieve is going to take you through all the things you need to know about having a safe, secure, and health-optimized home. The space that you survive in is absolutely critical to giving you the energy you need to live the mission you are meant to live! Tune in to learn what you need to reexamine in your home, the things that you can (or should) change, and the things that you can do right away in order to be able to live your most optimal life in the place you spend the most time!

“We always hear about environmental toxins and it feels overwhelming … but our home environment is really a lot more polluted than people realize. And sometimes it is even 100X more polluted inside a building than outside … [but] we have control over that.” — Genevieve White 

 

“I don’t want to scare people! I just want to make people more aware of what we’re exposing ourselves to.” — Genevieve White 

 

“I sprinkle cinnamon on my houseplants and that helps keep the mold at bay! …Isn’t that a cool trick?” — Genevieve White 

 

“I try to just be really mindful of the signals that my body is giving me. ’Cause you just can’t clean your house and be good to go; … it’s an ongoing thing.” — Genevieve White
