Ultimate Home Detox Guide by Kimberly Button

Are You Unhealthy Because of Your Home?

What foods should you eat to lose weight and stay healthy? Do you have a general idea?

Probably.

Now let me ask you this: What chemicals in your water should you make sure are removed? How can you tell if your indoor air quality is safe?

Chances are, you don't know. And you are NOT alone.

For too long, our world has only focused on what we eat and how active we are, without paying any attention to where we live and work. Yet our homes are unique environments that affect your health in so many ways. Maybe even more than food and exercise. 

Things like the air that you breathe, the water that you bathe in, and EMF hot spots in your home that could be impacting your health.

These environmental toxins that can be harming your health are found in your day-to-day life. But they are easy to remove! 

If you feel overwhelmed by all of the information on the internet, if you are confused by all of the 'natural' and 'clean' marketing claims (trust me, you're not alone in that one!) and if you just want a quick and easy resource of the best products to buy so that you can quickly start living your healthiest life now, then you'll want to join me for the Ultimate Home Detox!

About the Author

Kimberly Button is a Certified WELL AP, founder of GetGreenBeWell.com,  author of The Everything Guide to a Healthy Home, and an overcomer of a range of illnesses, including childhood cancer, fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. She found that by cleaning up her home from common toxins, her health improved and she was able to overcome illnesses that doctors couldn't previously figure out. 

What is the Ultimate Home Detox?

It's an online course with 16 chapters that is literally the blueprint of how I regained my health after being disabled from toxins for more than a decade.

The 16 different topics, from new paint colors to EMFs, are packed with information, research reports and product recommendations. Yep, these are the exact same products and items that I use in my own home - and I'll tell you what I use. Plus, I'll give you lots of cheat sheets, printable resources, and shopping lists. And if you ever have a question, you'll get help from me in our private Facebook group.

I started using these simple tips back in 2005. That was long before anyone really knew (or accepted) the concept of environmental toxins. I spent countless weeks and months trying to find nuggets of truth to somehow turn my health around. Because I was desperately sick and in pain, though from all outward appearances I looked healthy and well. 

Doctors thought I was crazy. All of the prescription medications that medical professionals gave me only made me worse. I was constantly told it was all in my head. But it wasn't. 

It was all in my house.

Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired

I know this all too well. I've been really, really sick over my lifetime. Cancer, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and more have all been something that I've dealt with and overcome by my thirties. Yep, all of those health challenges when I was very young.

Every doctor that I went to couldn't help me and didn't know what to do with me. So I started taking matters into my own hands. 

I spent years of my life on research. I cleaned my home from environmental toxins slowly over time. I focused on the products that I brought into my home and into my life.

And I healed. 

Yes, I am a whole new person now. I am healthy, vibrant and active. And I knew that when God allowed me to come out of that deep, dark, scary abyss of being so unhealthy and not knowing how to get better, that I had to share my answers and encouragement with everyone.

And to help you live a healthier life, too.

Whether you are facing a medical challenge now or just trying to prevent one, this course is for you.

FAQs

Do I Have to Get Rid of Everything in My House to Remove Toxins?

This is the number one concern that everyone has. And I'm happy to say that the answer is NO!

I'm a firm believer of creating a healthier home with what you have, and the style that you love. I don't want you to get rid of stuff that you love. Or strip your home of your own personal style and decor. 

I'll teach you how to look at your home with a fresh eye towards environmental toxins that might be causing you harm.  You'll discover that you don't need to be worried about lots of things in your home. And I'll show you how to reduce your toxin load easily if you do have problematic items.

Are the Products You Suggest Expensive? Will I Have to Go Out of My Way to Go Shopping?

I'm on a budget just like you. In fact, I made a lot of these changes early in my life when I was unable to work because of my medical problems and literally had no money at all. I was surviving with a food budget of about $150 a month. 

Some stuff costs money. I'll have to admit that. But it's always a good investment that will pay off for years to come. And you can work your way up to these items. They don't have to be bought in the beginning. (That's the way that I had to do it.)

A majority of things can be done for free or at very low cost. I'm always mindful of how much  products and services cost. And I try to offer ideas for every price point. Even if you're surviving but not thriving in your finances and don't see how you can afford to create a healthy home, I promise you that the 16 chapters of information in the Ultimate Home Detox Guide will help you create a healthier life, even if you don't buy one product suggested and only use the tips and tricks.

As for shopping, I spend most of my time at Target and Amazon, if that gives you an idea of how I buy the products that are non-toxic and healthier for my home. There's plenty of products out there readily available at major retailers and the online stores that you love. You just need to know where to find them and what they are. That's why I love to give you shopping lists to make running your errands easier.

Will My Health Problems Go Away if I Do Everything in This Course?

There is no way to promise that. I absolutely cannot guarantee your health will improve.

All I can say is that all of these tips and tricks and products have made my health turn around completely. In fact, my doctors are amazed and in disbelief. I have had more than one doctor tell me, "Whatever it is that you are doing, keep doing it."

Let me share a story that stays with me to this day. It's the reason why I do what I do. My Dad has annual checkups at the clinic. During one yearly visit with lab work, he started talking to the nurse. She was taking multiple medications for a variety of health problems and just didn't feel good. Nothing was working. My Dad gave her a copy of my book (The Everything Guide to a Healthy Home, which was published back in 2012 but is now quite out of date with products and ideas) and told her my story of being able to miraculously change my health around.

One year later, he went back for his annual exam. By the Grace of God, this nurse was working that day and happened to be assigned to my Dad. After a while, she realized my Dad was the one who gave her the book. She immediately started telling him that she read all of my ideas and put them into action. Over the course of the year, she started feeling better, lost weight and was off of most of her medications. She couldn't believe how much better she felt. She thanked him for giving her the answer to start feeling healthier.

I hope and pray you get results like countless other people that have cleaned up their living environment using these methods. But I am not a medical professional. I don't know your unique medical situation and previous treatments. And, quite honestly, some illnesses need modern medicine and advanced technologies that go beyond simply getting back to basics at home.

You won't know, though, unless you make this investment in your health. In the grand scheme of things, $97 is a small price to pay to turn your health around for years and decades to come. You might spend that much on one product one month that does nothing for you. The Ultimate Home Detox Guide will provide you a manual for healthy living at home that will last a lifetime and give you the resources and knowledge to make informed decisions from now on. Don't you deserve to try to feel better right now?
