Designing a Home for Multiple Chemical Sensitivities

IBE 223.11

Indoor environments contain concentrations up to 100 times more air pollutants than are extant outside their very doorsteps. While everyone deserves a home and workplace free of such environmental hazards, it is especially crucial for those who suffer from multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS). Removing toxicants and indoor allergens from indoor air contributes to fresh, clean, pure living environments that are essential to rejuvenating and supporting health, vitality, and mental clarity. This course will lead you through designing, remodeling, or simply rethinking a home to eliminate or minimize the surprising number of sources and hideouts of harmful contaminants and steps required to eliminate them from the indoor air you inhale up to 20,000 times per day.
