Could the pesticides that are regularly sprayed in almost every public place, such as the grocery store, schools, office buildings, hospitals, banks, golf courses, neighbour’s yards, highways and parks, be responsible for your symptoms?

Known by many different labels ( e.g. Raid), pesticides are sprayed regularly almost everywhere you travel. Routine pesticide spraying is a common practice in most public places as well as retirement homes, condominiums, motels and restaurants. The harmful neurotoxic and endocrine disrupting chemicals that make up pesticides can cause many unwanted symptoms; depression, chronic fatigue, head aches, autoimmunity, heart palpitations, autism, nausea, vomiting, insomnia, multiple chemical sensitivity, hypothyroidism and more.

To protect your health use non-toxic pesticide control measures.

COCKROACHES: Bay leaves, boric acid, boric acid/powdered sugar mix, oatmeal/flour/plaster of Paris mix, bait boxes.

ANTS: Black pepper, chili powder, chalk, lavender/olive oil mix, ferns, juniper leaves, goldenrod.

MOTHS: Cedar, lavender.

FLEAS: Spray pets with vinegar/water mix daily; feed pet brewers yeast, vitamin B or garlic tablets with food; fennel, rue and rosemary rub, enzyme shampoo.

MICE & RATS: Lavender, cedar oil, camphor, peppermint oil.
