…Trauma [can] be like this catastrophic thing, or it can be this ‘feeling alone’ and not having your needs met, and it can be anything in the middle.  And so there’s not like, ‘oh, my trauma doesn’t matter because other people’s…’, no, each of us has our own, it’s like a soul blueprint.

How Toxic Are You? [Free Quiz]

Heavy metals like lead, arsenic, mercury, and aluminum never went away. They are still present in home building materials, furniture, food, beverages, and more.

Finding ways to reduce exposure to these heavy metals (and many more) is incredibly important. To do that effectively, people first need to know which heavy metals they are being exposed to — if any.

This quiz was designed to evaluate individual risk factors for heavy metal exposure, and to gauge whether getting tested for heavy metals is recommended or not. Believe it or not, there are simple at-home tests people can take if they are being exposed — this quiz will determine if it’s worth it to take one.
