Considering we spend around 1/3 of our lives on a mattress, it's pretty important that it's not emitting toxic vapors or otherwise causing health problems.
Fire retardant chemicals are a big health issue with mattresses. Flame-retardant chemicals have been linked to serious health risks, including infertility, birth defects, neurodevelopmental delays, reduced IQ scores and behavioral problems in children, hormone disruptions, and various forms of cancer.

Any terms like these that were associated with New Age by our society without any actual education or Biblical research into the matter tend to cause that look that says, "Oh you're not really a Christian."

So I dug into it. And because of what I found, that's why I speak about frequency and energy in my classes. I want to share a bit about what I've learned on this topic because if we understand it, it can impact our lives in powerful ways. What we don't know about it CAN hurt us.Read More
