This is the place to start for a healthier home!
WHY IS THIS COURSE SO IMPORTANT?
Our intention with Healthy at Home is to impart the importance of this topic, and guide you along in removing the potential causes of chronic illness from your home, one room at a time.
What if all it took to dramatically reduce that chemical load and the risk of disease were some simple switches in our homes? The good news: Cleaning up our home is dramatically easier than cleaning up the diet!
Empower yourself to learn simple and effective ways to make your home a safe and healthy space for you and your family. Remove the cause of potential illness from your home.
Most people don't realize how critical this is.
Healthy at Home is an essential course that will help guide you in navigating your way to cultivating a healthy home, and removing the potential causes of chronic illness.

The Health Of Your Home Affects The Health Of Your Family
We spend more time than ever inside our homes. It is time to start paying attention to what we fill our home with, what we use on a daily basis and how it might be affecting our health long term.
- The bed you sleep on?
- The detergents you use?
- The finishings on your carpets?
- The materials of your window coverings?
- The technology in your bedroom?
- Your blankets and pillows?
- How you actually use your homes?
There is a lot we can’t change or control when it comes to our health. The health inside our homes, however, is something we can change very easily. And it is vitally important.
We have done the work for you
When we moved into our home, a house built over 100 years ago, and began setting it up, we took a deep dive into one of the most important aspects of health: the toxins that lurk within all of our homes.
This isn’t about moving to a new home, tearing out your drywall, or putting down new floors. No. What we cover are the extremely simple but essential swaps, updates and in many cases, the need to just stop using certain things (I’m looking at you fabric softener and dryer sheets).
Healthy at Home focuses on the little things – small habit changes that make a difference.

Do you get into tips for building or renovating?
We do not cover renovations or any structural changes in the Healthy at Home course. Surfaces (paint/counter tops) is as far as we go, leaving it where the walls close. We had to stop somewhere and so we chose to focus on the simple things that matter most for day-to-day living.
