Naturopathic doctor to discuss synthetic chemicals in everyday products as part of Let’s Feel Better series
Event has passed
ROCKPORT — The Rockport Public Library’s “Let’s Feel Better” series continues on Wednesday, April 5, at 6 p.m., with a presentation entitled “What’s in YOUR Washing Machine? Everyday Chemicals We Encounter.” Dr. Alison Maloof, ND of Atlas Naturopathic Health Center, in Rockport, will give an informational presentation focusing on potentially harmful ingredients found in products around the house.
It has been 85 years since the US Congress passed a regulation on what ingredients are allowed in cosmetics. In that time thousands of synthetic chemicals have been developed and added to everyday products from moisturizers to laundry detergent. Dr. Maloof will discuss how to identify unsafe ingredients, what effects they have on health, and how to reduce exposure.
Dr. Maloof received her doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from National University of Health Sciences in Chicago, and completed a two-year accredited residency in Vermont after naturopathic medical school. She opened Atlas Naturopathic Health Center in 2021.
