TODAY (5/21/18) - Christine Dimmick, a sought-after wellness expert, speaking regularly at places such as Canyon Ranch and The JCC Manhattan. She is the founder and CEO of The Good Home Company Inc.

LISTEN to today's conversation with Christine Dimmick!

Christine has spent more than two decades focusing on non-toxic healthy home products. After Christine survived cancer (and her husband was diagnosed, and two friends passed away from it...), she looked into removing from her environment the many harmful chemicals that are in everyday products and may have effected her diagnosis. Often times even the government has not approved the use of these chemicals, and yet no laws specify that they cannot be here they are, working their way into our detergents, sprays, beauty products, and more.Her new book, Detox Your Home, comes out this April (Rowman & Littlefield). It explores and explains the labels that inform our purchasing decisions and the regulations that govern what consumer goods are available in our shops and supermarkets.

Cancer affects 1 in 2 persons, and nearly everyone has an autoimmune-related disease or allergy. We live in a world where the incidence of illness grows as fast as the GDP. Industrialization has created a world that puts products before human and environmental health. Exercise and eating right is not enough. In this rapidly growing world, our resources are depleting along with our health and the public sees and feels this daily.

Health and Wellness speaker, advocate and Good Home Company Founder, Christine Dimmick, takes a deep dive into the toxins found in our very own homes, and how you can limit your exposure and take control of your own health. Detox Your Home addresses all of these issues – from clothing to food to the cleaning products used every day in homes just like yours. Dimmick unveils what manufacturers won’t, so you can avoid exposing yourself and your family to the hidden toxins eating away at America’s health and wellness. Detox Your Home is the essential go-to book for how to live a life of wellness, and will show you how to improve – in every part of your life.

From food, water, and kitchen goods, to personal care and cleaning products— even clothing and common household items like phones, furniture, and children’s toys— Dimmick uses the most recent scientific evidence to expose the harmful toxins lurking in our most intimate, everyday environments.

Detox Your Home​: A Guide to Removing Toxins from Your Life and Bringing Health Into Your Home ​explores how to improve health by empowering choices about our clothing, food, cleaning products and more.
