This month’s issue deals with toxicity in the home and outlines Dr. Hulda Clark’s stance on the toxins that nearly all of us are exposed to in our immediate environments.
TOXICITY IN THE HOME
When I was considering what to talk about this month, I had a hard decision to make because there are so many issues that affect us all. I could have addressed the subject of vaccinations which is so popular right now, toxicity in the workplace, the environment, in our foods, in our mouth…
Instead, I decided to tackle the subject of toxic chemicals that we have right inside the home – under our kitchen sink, in our broom closet or in our bathroom.
Unless we get very serious and eliminate all harmful substances from our homes, we can not expect to become and stay healthy. This subject is one of the biggest themes in all of Dr. Clark’s books, and yet one of the hardest things to actually do.
When I was faced with cancer the second time (you can read my story here), I read Dr. Clark’s book “The Cure for all Cancers.” Lyn and I decided that getting rid of all the toxic substances in our home was high priority. My immune system was needed to fight disease and to build healthy cells.
Most of us like to have a clean home. We shop in the local grocery store and find that there are cleaners for the oven, cleaners for the windows, sprays for the bathroom, foams for cleaning tile, cleaners for furniture etc. We have toilet bowl cleaners, stain removers, fabric softeners, drain cleaners, air fresheners, disinfectants and detergents. We are presented with soaps, shampoos, hairspray, personal care products of all kinds. If we were to collect all the cleaners, solutions, sprays, lotions and potions from our kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms, we would likely fill 3-5 boxes full.
Lyn collected 4 boxes full of cleaners from all areas of our house.
We think that if we do not use all these different things to clean the areas in our home, then we are not giving it our best shot. We want to make things easier for ourselves. We want to give our family what they deserve in having a clean home, and we think we are actually killing germs with these cleaners. We have all believed that the grocery stores would not stock anything on their shelves that would be unsafe, or that would kill us. They tell us what is good for house cleaning and we believe them.
In John K. Beaulieu’s book “Is Your Home a Healthy Home?” he lists a very disturbing fact. “A product that kills 50% of lab animals through ingestion or inhalation can still receive the federal regulatory designation “non-toxic.” He goes on to describe the different ways that toxic chemicals enter the human body: ingestion, inhalation and absorption. “One square centimeter of your skin, an area less than the size of a dime, contains 3 million cells, four yards of nerves, one yard of blood vessels, and one hundred sweat glands.” He goes on to say that any chemical that touches the skin can be absorbed and spread throughout the body, only to have the kidneys and liver try to filter out and remove the toxins.
The results of toxic overload from use of household chemicals include: birth defects, infertility and miscarriage, cancer (in adults and children), asthma, CNS (Central Nervous System) disorders. John Beaulieu writes “It’s important, once again, to remind you that only 10% of the chemicals that appear in household products have been tested for negative effects on the nervous system. And we know nothing about the long-term effects of exposure to these chemicals.” CNS disorder symptoms can include headaches, dizziness, Multiple Sclerosis, etc. Other symptoms which are brought on by continued exposure to solvents are: memory loss, behavioral changes, confusion, emotional instability, neurological and personality changes.
Formaldehyde, which is a common ingredient in household chemicals, is found in personal care products and cosmetics. Kare Possick’s book “Why are you Poisoning your Family” states that “Exposure to formaldehyde has been shown to cause headaches, depression, joint pain, chronic fatigue, chest pains, ear infections, dizziness and loss of sleep.”
Dr. Clark’s states that “100% of cancer patients have the solvent isopropyl alcohol accumulated in their liver and in their cancerous tissues.” Any product with the words “isopropyl alcohol”, “propyl alcohol”, “propanol” or “isopropanol” should be thrown away! Isopropyl Alcohol is the antiseptic commonly used in doctors’ offices and cosmetics. Dr. Clark has identified propyl alcohol in cold cereals, shampoo, hair spray and mousse, bottled water, store-bought fruit juice, mouthwash, shaving supplies, carbonated beverages, decaffeinated coffee and white sugar. Dr. Clark says “Throw Them Out!”.
Laundry detergents are full of deadly chemicals like phosphorus, ammonia, naphthalene, phenol, and PCB’s. Shampoos contain formaldehyde, deodorants and antiperspirants contain ammonia, ethanol, formaldehyde and aluminum.
Toothpastes contain benzene and formaldehyde. Benzene is also found in chewing gum, hand creams and Vaseline products. The list goes on. There is so much information that I could include in this section that I will devote another newsletter to the harmful ingredients in these cleaners, and the potential side-effects and health challenges they could bring.
HOW TO BEGIN THE CLEAN-UP
Dr. Hulda Clark in her book “The Cure for All Cancers” under the section “Clean House” begins, “To clean the house, start with the bedroom. Remove everything that has any smell to it whatever: candles, potpourri, soaps, mending glue, cleaners, repair chemicals, felt markers, colognes, perfumes, and especially plug-in air fresheners. Next clean the kitchen. Take all cans and bottles of chemicals out from under the sink or in a closet. Remove them to the garage. Make a decision first: that you are worth the trouble.”
When we began our search for non-toxic alternatives to traditional toxic household chemicals, we began with Dr. Clark’s three suggestions: baking soda, vinegar and borax. We decided that we would not take a chance on getting contaminated with any other things. We brushed our teeth with baking soda in water, washed our clothes and hair with borax, and basically endured because our health was so important. We took great care not to bring any substance into the house that could possibly contain isopropyl alcohol.
A WONDERFUL SOLUTION
We have since discovered a wonderful new product called “Solutions-4-You.”
This is a powerful, non-toxic multipurpose cleanser, which we use for almost every cleaning need in our home. Dr. Hulda Clark endorses this product. It does not contain alcohol, bleach, carcinogens, caustic solvents, detergents, any dyes, pesticides, petrochemicals, phosphates, preservatives, sulfates, toxic metals or volatile organic compounds. “Solutions 4 You” is a biodegradable, plant-based formula that’s safe for the environment, your family and you!
In our home, we use “Solutions 4 You” to wash vegetables, brush our teeth, do our laundry, wash dishes, spray the plants for aphids and do almost any cleaning chore you could dream up. It is also a safe mosquito repellent!!

That’s it for now. We hope you are enjoying your summer. God bless you all!
