Welcome to Christy's Non Toxic Lifestyle. We’re all so busy managing: families, careers, households, relationships and even technology. At some point, something has to give — and eventually it will — unless we all “slow down” and start giving more attention to our health and the one body we’ve been given. Empower yourself! You can live a non toxic lifestyle!

The Art of Doing Nothing

Great book title right?! I’m IN! About 8 years ago, I discovered this book while I was looking for a little validation for doing nothing, basically. I come from a family of hard workers and strong work ethic. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing but I do believe there needs to be a balance of hard work and self -acceptance in being a little, okay, I’m going to say it, LAZY! We hear the word “lazy” and it usually has a negative connotation, right? Click here for more!

The Healing Power of Reiki

It’s an understatement when I say I had the good fortune of being introduced to Reiki nearly 12 years ago! I had been diagnosed with cancer and was looking for anything to help me heal. I am so grateful that I am open to trying new things, especially healing modalities, as long as it doesn’t involve pain! I’ve learned that the world is abundant in healing resources. We just have to know how to tap into them. Click here for more!


Body pampering and scrubs are the best at-home treats I love to give myself year-round, especially during the holidays and during the dry winter months. What I love, too, is that I can make enough for myself to enjoy and they make AWESOME gifts for my girlfriends. These are gifts that will be treasured AND used, I guarantee. You will be thought of and thanked every time they step in the shower! Click here for more!

Could Your Toothbrush Be Keeping You Sick?

Okay, so we had a few funky germs in our home over the holiday season and while washing the bedding and airing out the house, I remembered that bacteria can also linger on our toothbrushes. Most of us brush at least twice a day. Funny how good health can be derailed when brushing with a germy toothbrush, one with lingering bits of bacteria. It’s easy to forget, right?

Snowshoeing – The Top Winter Calorie Burn!

What I love in particular about snowshoeing is that it’s a healthy, inexpensive workout. You can rent the equipment and all you need is a large flat or hilly area. Public golf courses, school grounds, parks often offer free areas. Or, you can go for the really scenic views and head to your closest mountains, like we do here in Colorado. Click here for more!

Bone Broth, Beans and Greens… Oh My!

From time to time I’m going to turn my blog over to a friend or colleague who is really “the pro” in their respective area of healthy living. This week I’m pleased to announce my first guest blogger, Natalie Oliva, a bright, young foodie, with a degree from the French Culinary Institute in New York. She has a passion for fresh, healthy foods that incorporate seasonal ingredients. Click here for more!

Christy's Non Toxic Lifestyle Is Social

I’ve been sitting with this notion of “sanctuary” for many months now. For many of us it means a place of refuge or safety. Other thoughts come to mind too – haven, oasis, shelter and retreat. Is “sanctuary” a physical place (snuggled under a favorite blanket) or can it be an activity or even people? I’m writing about this because I believe it’s essential to one’s overall health to feel safe, honored and respected, wherever that may be.
