Detox your Child’s Sleeping Environment

Metal bed frames can have residual magnetism and also spring mattresses can actually act as a giant antenna! When we sleep on a spring mattress in a metal bed the radiation envelops our bodies so that the maximum strength of the field develops 75 centimeters above the mattress in the middle of our bodies. When sleeping on the right side, the body’s left side will thereby be exposed to field strength about twice as strong as what the right side absorbs.


Bedroom Detox Solutions:

  • Buy a chemical-free organic mattress that does not contain metal coils.
  • Choose to buy from companies that you trust to use natural, toxin-free materials that won’t harm the environment or you.
  • Manufacturers can call their mattress organic if it contains any organic components. Even if it’s just an organic cotton filling or organic cotton surface fabric. Mattresses that have organic cotton fillings may come with a vinyl covering, so these may be called organic mattresses, but because of the vinyl covering and chemical fire retardants, these mattresses are obviously not all toxin-free.
  • Organic wool has natural fire-resistant properties and is a natural material that is used successfully in mattresses to pass the flammability tests.
  • Organic cotton is very important, as cotton is one of the most heavily-sprayed crops. Always ask the manufacturer about the materials they used.
  • There are companies that sell mattresses that are completely natural and toxin-free.
  • Buy wooden frames and headboards
