(NaturalNews) Chemicals come in many shapes and sizes and some of our favorite products may be the most damaging to a person experiencing symptoms of chemical toxicity. The products we use every day are often a source for poisoning. Our homes and schools have the potential to become playgrounds of poisons. Healing Chemical Sensitivities Part I and Part II discussed some of the reactions a sensitive individual may experience from the chemicals in our food and water. Cleaning up our environment is equally important.

Simply taking a bath or cleaning a bathtub can create many reactions. Soaps, shampoos, detergents, and cleaning products must be replaced with natural and organic ones.

Chemical bug sprays can be as toxic to humans as they are to bugs. Natural bug sprays have come a long way compounding natural formulas that are effective and safe even for the youngest of bodies. The same is true for sunscreens. Different formulas may work on different individuals. Taking time to experiment is worth the time, money and effort.

Anything with a perfume scent can cause discomfort especially for younger children. These products include hair sprays, perfumes, lotions and creams. Look for products that are clear and unscented.

Kitty litters can be filled with chemicals to reduce odors, often causing skin rashes and hives.

Not all natural products are created equal. So be leery of products that claim to be pure, natural and CHEAP. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Formaldehyde is a commonly used chemical compound that exists in various forms, and at room temperature it is a colorless, distinctive, strong and even pungent smelling flammable and gaseous substance. Solvent based adhesives in a new carpet contain formaldehyde.

Formaldehyde can seriously poison a sensitive being. Even carpeting claiming to be eco-friendly may not be as pure as one may imagine for the very sensitive being. So if carpeting is in your future, there may be a way to avoid chemical poisoning, which may include headaches, skin rashes, uncontrollable behaviors, and asthma-like symptoms.

Cleaning a new carpet may seem silly, but it could help alleviate potential dangers. And what one uses in the cleaning process can make all the difference. Bypass chemical cleaners and create your own carpet cleaner using water, baking soda and lemon juice.

Our lawns and gardens may look pretty with chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides; however, these products can cause serious reactions including skin rashes, asthma, inability to focus and headaches.

Paints and varnishes, especially those that are oil based, are hazardous to our health. And why would anyone allow children to breathe in fumes of a recently urethaned gymnasium floor?

What is a parent to do when schools become toxic? We can sit back and do nothing, or we can become our children's advocate. Encouraging the powers to be to paint and urethane only during summer break is a great step, and using the least toxic paints and urethanes helps. Natural lawn care ingredients may be more expensive; however, it may be time to ask our selves exactly what price are we willing to pay to ensure the health and safety of our children at school and at home?

Sensitive individuals teach us that we must all be conscious when it comes to the use of chemicals and poisons, and choosing natural is always best. Eventually the mind must speak for the body, and refusing to be poisoned in any form is the most intelligent decision one can make to ensure the health and safety of our families.
