Instagram Live with Dr. Organic Mommy: In Home Testing for Chemicals




Last week I had the opportunity to visit Natasha from Dr Organic Mommy and taped an Instagram Live, where we covered some of our favorite home testing kits to test for toxins.  As we discussed in the Live,  you don’t always have to spend thousands of dollars testing for serious chemicals in your home.  In fact, there are home testing kits that can help you determine if your family is being exposed to some of the most serious and toxic chemicals. 


Home testing kits are never as accurate as the testing a professional can provide but they can be effective as a first step towards helping  you determine if you need to spend serious money on calling a professional into your home.
