Cleaning Your House: The Newest Health Secret
You don't need it to be spring to give your house a good cleaning. And guess what? Doing so has more benefits than just a tidy closet.

In fact, cleaning your house can be extremely healthy for you.

Not only can it help with allergies and ward off colds and flu, but it can be good for your heart.

Physical exertion from scrubbing floors, vacuuming, and even folding laundry can burn calories, reduce stress and get your heart pumping.

And, cleaning out your pantry may not burn as many calories in the act itself; but it gives you a chance to start anew with healthy, fresh foods.

Join special guest, Richard Cotton, MS, as he shares creative tips to getting healthy... simply by cleaning your house.
