Kicking off the Eco-Friendly Gift Guide 2020 is an air purifier. The air in California is off-the-hook unhealthy and we’re also living in a time of climate change, ripe with environmental pollution, fires and pesticide exposure. There is no time like the present to invest in an air purifier for your home and bedroom. We spend eight hours a night healing and regenerating our body and it is imperative that we’re also breathing clean air to aide and support these natural processes. I personally keep my air purifier in my bedroom and turn it on while I’m sleeping, to ensure my body is getting clean air while catching some Z’zzzz. This healthy holiday gift is a must!

Sprouting Lids + Broccoli Seeds
Next, on the Eco-Friendly Gift Guide is all things sprouts! Sprouts are phenomenal foods to eat daily for optimal health and well-being, especially broccoli sprouts. There are hundreds of studies that have looked at the health benefits of consuming broccoli sprouts, such as hormone balance (detoxes estrogen dominance), digestion, detoxification, anti-aging and even cancer prevention. Due to their high amounts of sulforaphane, broccoli sprouts are the ultimate superfood. Store bought sprouts tend to be costly and spoil quickly, so the best alternative is to make them yourself. Put your homemade sprouts on salads, in smoothies, on sandwiches or even in soups.

Organic Eco-Friendly, Reusable Produce Bags
Ditch plastic for good by investing in organic, reusable muslin produce bags. Not only is this set great for fruits, veggies, as well as grains, but they can also be washed and used for traveling. Times are changing and it’s important to think about our planet not just during the holiday’s, but also year round. Decline the one-time use plastic and paper bags and pull out your handy muslin cloth bags. Eco-friendly, chic and cost effective, you’ll definitely get people thinking when you pull these out at the grocery store!

Mineral Drops – Phytoplankton
Minerals are the spark plugs to life and without proper minerals present in the diet, the body cannot detoxify naturally, nor have adequate energy. Unfortunately, due to soil depletion, the processing of foods and purification of water, minerals are no longer readily found in our soil, food and water. Sea salt and algae are the next best options we have to expose our body to the fuel it requires. Fortunately, there is still a wealth of minerals available in ocean sources, such as phytoplankton.

Berkey Water Filtration System
Today our municipal water is filled with toxic pesticides, pathogens, pharmaceuticals, antibiotics, petrochemicals, heavy metals and even hormones, which all greatly contribute to toxic overload in our bodies. Even, the shower water we bathe with, can actually cause allergic reactions in individuals sensitive to the aforementioned toxins. Read “Clean Health Starts with Clean Water” for more information about the harmful byproducts found in our water system. You can also visit www.ewg.org and search by your zip code for the contaminants found in your local water.
This stainless steal filtration system can filter up to 2.1 gallons. I love this filtration system not only because it filters 99.9% of bacteria, viruses, pharmaceuticals, heavy metals and inorganic materials, but it also has filters you can add on to remove fluoride, which calcifies the pineal gland. It is nearly impossible to find a filter that can accomplish this.

In divine health!
