3 Reasons Perfume Stinks for Your Health

by Dr. Frank Lipman @ Dr Frank Lipman

Perfume has become a industrial, virtually plant-free affair, far removed from its nature-bound beginnings. Modern day perfumes and fragrances, be they the ones you spray on, shampoo into your skin or moisturize post-shower, have morphed into vehicles that deliver numerous petroleum-based synthetic toxins into our bodies, making most scents little more than ugly subverters of health, wrapped in pretty packaging.

How to Find a Nontoxic and Sustainable Mattress - Ecocult

How to Find a Nontoxic and Sustainable Mattress - Ecocult


Ecocult

I have something admit. My mattress is not eco-friendly. Well, it is in the sense that I bought it used. Three years ago, I was sleeping on the Ikea mattress I had bought off the girl who lived in my room before me. When a downstairs neighbor had to abruptly move out and sell all his furniture, I picked up a Tempur-Pedic mattress for $300 (! They usually start at $1,600). That mattress is now covered with organic sheets, pillows, and pillow covers. But I never seriously considered getting a new one, even though I know most mattresses contain fire retardants, volatile organic compounds, and formaldehyde which offgas into our air while we sleep on them. Hours a night. Almost every night. For years. In fact, my mattress must be the most toxic thing in my home. And yet, mattresses are expensive. And getting rid of my current mattress would entail throwing it out – because of bed bugs, nobody wants to buy or even take an old mattress. But now that you can recycle your mattress in New York City, I might be ready to switch mine out. But buyer beware: Not all mattress companies who bill themselves as eco-friendly …

by Organic Newsroom @ Organic Newsroom

Getting good sleep isn’t easy; stress keeps your mind racing, chronic pain makes you body ache, and there’s always too much to do with too little time to do it! Many of us aren’t getting the restorative sleep we need each night. Natural sleep aids like melatonin, magnesium glycinate, and GABA all help but oftentimes fall short […]

Paleo Banana Ice Cream Pies (Sweetener Free)

by Lauren @ Empowered Sustenance

These mini banana ice cream pies are like a good hair day, but a reliable good hair day. Which is, of course, an oxymoron (unless you are using raw, holistic hair care… but that’s a story for another browser tab). In my book, a good hair day is defined when one’s tresses appear more impressive than the entailed effort. Minimal time […]

Where to Get Good Coffee in Granada, Nicaragua

by Abigail Davidson @ Ecocult

A decade ago, you would have had a difficult time finding high quality coffee in Nicaragua. Coffee farmers could make so much more money by exporting it that none of the good stuff stayed in the country. In recent years, however, there has been a growing community of people who want to keep some of their amazing coffee to enjoy themselves -- and I don't blame them one bit! Here are a few places where you can get your hands on some of the good stuff.

Baba Ganoush Recipe

by Lauren @ Empowered Sustenance

Baba ganoush, and paleo-friendly dips Before I began a grain-free diet to address my autoimmune disease, I relied on hummus and carrot sticks for many travel-friendly lunches. As my new diet excluded legumes, however, hummus was no longer an option. I couldn’t go long without a staple dip recipe, because I needed something for picnics and easy appetizers. […]

Dairy Free Ranch Dressing Recipe

by Lauren @ Empowered Sustenance

My two food groups… When I was a child, I ate primarily two foods groups: foods one ate with ketchup, and foods one at with ranch dressing. Vegetables nearly always fell into the latter food group, and setting the table included bringing out the bottle of Hidden Valley Ranch. Loaded with sugar and MSG, it’s […]

Becoming a first-time parent is equal parts terrifying and thrilling. You want to do everything you can to protect and keep your baby safe, which, compounded with new mom hormones, can get a little crazy-making. It doesn't help that there seem to be a million decisions to make (some with health consequences)–after all, there is no way around a steep learning curve to prepare you for a newborn (though it's a fast one).

STLBeds

Organic bed, why? Healthier, long lasting, ecologically friendly, personalized comfort and firmness for each sleeper. The amount of toxic chemicals we introduce inside our homes is astounding and mattresses are one of the most notorious.  Petroleum based foam, synesthetic fabrics, and chemical flame retardants used to “protect us” off gas within our homes and degrade into the dust particles we breathe making our families vulnerable to numerous related health issues related  to these compounds. All natural mattresses without toxic flame retardants offer a beneficial healthy alternative.Customization of natural Dunlop or Talalay latex rubber layers creates countless combinations of comfort and support that is unique for each sleeper. Your new mattress can be placed on most platform beds or on our natural coordinating foundation.  You will sleep assured with written documentation and certifications backing Savvy Rest’s statements of natural and organic materials.

Orange Tahini Freezer Fudge

“Freezer fudge” is a term used to describe what is, perhaps, the easiest dessert. A rich base, such as coconut oil or nut butter, is blended with sweetener and frozen.

13 Healthy Ways To Fight The Flu, Without Getting A Flu Shot

by Dr. Frank Lipman @ Dr Frank Lipman

Though the flu season rages on, I’m not a fan of flu shots. I don’t get them and rarely recommend them to anyone (with the possible exception of the very elderly or frail). The effectiveness of flu shots on otherwise healthy people is questionable, their ingredients include plenty of toxins, and the flu viruses in the shots aim to protect against mutate so quickly that the strain you were vaccinated against probably won’t be the one that makes you sick. Flu vaccines are, at best, hit or miss, and certainly not the cure all they’re made out to be.

Zero-VOC Sheathing & Subfloor

by noreply@blogger.com (Corinne) @ My Chemical-Free House

Here is an overview of low-VOC and zero-VOC sheathing and subflooring options.

Structural Plywood

Structural plywood (Softwood Plywood - SWPW) can be used for exterior sheathing, roof decking and subfloors. It is made with phenol-formaldehyde glue (PF) in the US and Canada.

The Rate of Formaldehyde Offgassing in PF Plywood

"Formaldehyde levels in this test chamber were well below 0.1 parts per million (ppm) in air from all tests of fresh panels, and emissions rapidly approached zero as the panels aged. In fact, the levels were so low and so close to the "background" levels in the test chamber that is was not possible to measure them accurately." Source APA

The rate in outdoor air is about 0.0002 - 0.006 parts per million (ppm) in rural and suburban outdoor air. Source

While 0.1 ppm is high for someone sensitive, the fact that the panels rapidly offgass should make them tolerable for someone with MCS. I would suggest testing plywood that is a few months old.

A Note on Purebond Formaldehyde-Free Plywood

Purebond plywood is not rated structurally or moisture-wise for sheathing, subfloor or decking. I have spoken to the company and they don't recommend it used for this purpose though I do see people building with this product. I am not sure the consequences of building your subfloor or decking with a non-structural plywood.

Non-Wood Options:

Exterior Sheathing

A non-wood option is Georgia-Pacific DensGlass, which is around 3 times the cost of OSB. It is very low VOC; they are going for GreenGuard certification. It is also a lot more mould resistant than OSB or plywood. Make sure with all materials it fits the codes where you live (in terms of high winds and earthquakes). Make sure it is also compatible with your exterior finish.

MgO board is now starting to be used as exterior sheathing. Another zero-VOC option. It is heavy, structural and more expensive than plywood.

Rigid foam can also be used as exterior sheathing without any ply or OSB. The rate of XPS offgassing is very low, but it does contain a flame retardant. The other option is Polyiso. The Johns Manville brand does not contain a flame retardant. Here is some info on how to brace when using rigid foam as sheathing. This is not structural and should be checked against local codes.

Another structural option is Rewall which is made of recycled beverage cartons and cups shredded and compressed. It claims zero-VOCs. It is paper-faced.

Subflooring

It is possible to use structural cementitious sheeting board (MgO) as a zero-VOC option however when I did this in my tiny house I needed additional framing support underneath. It worked out well for me. Here is an example of the support you need underneath. This is probably only suitable in a tiny house.

For those who can't tolerate wood it is possible to pour a concrete upper floor.

Roof Sheathing (Decking)

Purlins or skip sheathing can be used as an alternate form of roofing which eliminates the need for solid sheathing. This will only work with certain roof types (metal vented attic, in some cases cedar).

Pre-Plywood Options

In the days before plywood, solid wood was usually used:

For exterior sheathing, 1-by lumber laid diagonally was used. This is not an airtight option so humidity and energy issues should be considered. Make sure to use housewrap. Consider double sided housewrap tape so that you get more of an air barrier.

For subfloors, 1-by subfloor were laid diagonally to the floor joints. The subfloor could be planks or tongue and groove. Here is a little more info and a pic of planks. This is a zero-VOC option but it will cost you quite a bit more. If you use this method make sure you use a subfloor adhesive otherwise you will have a very creaky floor. Liquid Nails is the lowest VOC option I have seen at less than 20g/l, but I find Almighty Adhesive to be more tolerable.

For decking, 1x decking butted up to each other can be used. This is how roofs were built before plywood or OSB. This will allow for many types of roofing types over it.
