Radiation Protection Cases for Phones & More
We use and love these SafeSleeve Radiation Protection Phone, Laptop, Tablet, iPad, etc. cases. Studies have shown that exposure to EMF’s can cause serious health effects including cancer and neurologic disease. It is estimated that in the last 100 years levels of radiofrequency radiation have increased a quintillion times. EMF’s can disturb our sleep and cause headaches, nightmares, depression, fatigue, as well as long term illness. This are cute, handy, and work amazing while lowering your exposure to radiation – https://amzn.to/3nlOhxs

Thieves Cleaner by Young Living
This is all I use to clean every single thing in my home. Wood floors, granite countertops, showers, tubs, toilets, sinks, windows, mirrors, laundry stains, carpet stains, etc., with the occasional addition of baking soda for scrubbing power and Young Living’s lemon essential oil for degreasing.
- Grab some here https://www.myyl.com/amystanford#bwm/thieves-baby
One concentrated bottle of Thieves cleaner will last you approximately 6 months and will replace all of your cleaning products.

Recommended Castile Soap to make toilet bowl cleaner and bath/shower/sink scrub with baking soda and Thieves cleaner – https://amzn.to/2Ol3A7O
To boost the immune system and detoxify the body, increase magnesium, and sulfate levels, and boost methylation pathways. If in the thick of healing, these can be done daily (we gave my daughter daily detox baths starting at 16 months old when her healing journey began). If feeling under the weather these can be done multiple times a day.
