A single mom from Hinsdale is looking to help housesit as soon as possible for a village resident for 10 days at no charge while aiding herself to have a place to stay while her house is scrubbed free of toxins.
Karen M. Kindt, a Hinsdale resident for more than 10 years and mother of two, has chronic inflammatory response syndrome, an inability to process toxins, which then build up in her body causing a variety of issues.
She needs every surface of her house, including the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, “ every area possible,” to be scrubbed free of toxins, while she undergoes treatment to clean inside her body. “The house will be scrubbed down.”
“My house needs to be addressed and I need to start my treatments. I am not able to start until I remove myself from the elements in the home that are causing this reaction,” she has stated.
Kindt was supposed to start treatment last week; she posted a request Friday to house-sit and has had no response yet. “I should be out of here shortly,” she said Tuesday. “I was hoping for Sunday.”
She posted, “I recently celebrated my (52nd) birthday and I cannot think of a better gift (than) some ideas from you with regards to where I might be able to find a family that is need of my services or has a house that is vacant for 10 days.”
Kindt said she has been chronically ill for the past more than five years. Two weeks ago, extensive medical tests revealed the syndrome she has. “I have severe allergies that impact my immune function. Nothing I have is contagious in nature.”
The effect has been, “very difficult,” she said. She is fatigued and achy.
“It has been a long, challenging struggle for me and my children. I am thrilled that there now appears to be a diagnosis and treatment plan available to help me. However, in order to get better, I need to remediate my home for 10 days, and physically leave it,” she posted.
She will take the treatment, which involved IVs and cleansing the liver where toxins are stored, while housesitting.
Looking to housesit in Hinsdale, Kindt will get the mail and newspaper; feed the pets; turn lights on and off; and just make sure someone is in the house for security. She does not want money for her services. “It would benefit me.”
She has successfully housesit before, said she is well-respected and has many superior references.
Her preference to staying in Hinsdale is because her 12-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son have day camp and other summer activities in the village. A part- time worker in marketing for the Novo Group, she wants to be involved in her children’s day-to-day activities as much as possible.
Kindt said she cannot afford to go on a vacation. No relatives live in this area with whom the former Chicago resident could stay. A hotel room would be awfully expensive for 10 days, and, “ It’s fun for a day or two …”
After she is treated, the house will be toxin-free and elements would not affect her as much.
