In brief: Route of exposure
The three most common routes of exposure to toxins are oral (ingestion), respiratory (breathing in), transdermal (through the skin).
Learn the potential toxins and avoid the routes above. Remember each toxin or toxoid has an entry route & specific combination of symptoms. Some common are tobacco smoke and smog in air, heavy metals and pharmaceuticals for oral, and oil based toxic substance 4skin.

In brief: Three areas
First, eat as much organic food as possible.
Second, use organic skin care and cleaning products. Third avoid areas of high pollution like exercising along a major thoroughfare, swimming in the ocean or in a public pool, spending a lot of time in a fabric store or cosmetic store, and cleaning with harsh chemicals.
