The Resilient Family: Toxic Free Living With Dr Alexis Reid of Echochic

As part of the Resilient Family interview series Dr Alexis Reid and I sat town to talk about how to (and why to) avoid chemicals.

The goal of these interviews is to give parents like you simple strategies to raise healthy kids naturally.

It has never before been so important to avoid chemicals where and when we can. Where as in some cases they are unavoidable, there are many steps we can take to reduce our toxic burden. Reducing chemical load is a critical part of “prong one” of my two-pronged approach to helping your kids thrive – reducing irritation.

Watch for some great tips…

Dr Reid is a Naturopathic Doctor with a background in chemical engineering, pharmacology and toxicology.  It was while studying breast cancer that she became concerned with the effect of chemical on our health.  Now as a doctor, helping her patients detoxify and keep their elimination pathways open has become a large part of her practice.  In this webinar she gives families practical advice on how to do that for yourself and your kids. Dr Reid works out of the Life Therapies clinic in Ottawa and is also founder and CEO of Ecochic natural skin products.
