Is Your Home or Office Making You Sick?
Are you or someone in your family suffering health problems because your home isn't healthy?
Perhaps your home has sick building syndrome, toxic mold, high EMR (electromagnetic radiation) - or maybe it is off-gassing high amounts of VOC's (volatile organic compounds). Maybe your home has other issues which are making you or your family ill.
You could be suffering health problems from headaches, allergies, eczema and other skin disorders, asthma and other respiratory problems, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, loss of co-ordination, liver damage, suppressed immune system, parasites and/or other diseases. Many of the chemicals we are exposed to on a daily basis are carcinogens and can have both acute and long term health affects. There can also be significant stress and anxiety in dealing not only with health problems but also with trying to fix the house's problems.

As a former interior designer, I started feeling run down and tired all of the time. I was well aware of the abundance of toxic materials that exist in homes today from my experience as an interior designer. I then began a journey in search of answers. After much research and numerous doctor visits, I came to the conclusion that my house and products within the home were making me sick! It was through my research that I decided to become a BBEC Building Biology Environmental Consultant (Baubiologie - the study derived from Germany which encompasses how buildings impact life and the living environment). With my B.A. from Arizona State University already under my belt, I then decided to incorporate my two passions in life–interior design and health. After making the necessary adjustments in our home, my health gradually became better and my husband Ron, and I decided to help other people in their endless efforts to attain optimal health.
