Our Story

I would like to take a few minutes to share a little of our personal story because many of you reading this may benefit from it and save yourselves much heartache, pain, suffering, and money. We want to help as many families as we can avoid the problems our family faced and the hard lessons we learned.

My wife and I had just welcomed a new son into this world when we moved into and started renovating an old farmhouse. The house was close to 175 years old, and if you’ve ever seen the comedy, “Money Pit”, with Tom Hanks and Shelly Long, you will appreciate what happened to our family. There was one renovation problem after another while we were living there.

The big difference between our money pit and the movie was that our renovation project triggered some serious health issues for all three of us. In other words, our biggest money pits were related to illnesses that many of you can probably understand. 

Our traditional doctors were admittedly dumbfounded by what we were experiencing.  We spent over three years visiting doctors trying to figure out what was causing us to feel so bad.

Fortunately, we stopped depending on the doctors to solve our problems, and this is when things turned around for us and we started to find answers.

Well in the meantime, we lost our health insurance, and this turned out to be a blessing in disguise. After losing our health insurance, we started seeking naturopathic doctors and holistic practitioner’s advice since we had no luck with traditional doctors.

Why is this important?  Because our old house had hidden toxic mold that was being disturbed and going airborne during the renovation process.   

What happened was, the mold poison chronically stressed our bodies from the inside out and was a major factor in triggering an entire pathway of illnesses for us.

Fortunately, the naturopathic doctors and holistic practitioners had some ideas on how to detox and cleanse the entire body even if they didn’t know what to do about the mold in the house. 

The scary part of this story is that every day we are all living in a modern world full of stress and toxins, all of which are affecting our health - particularly women and children - at an alarming rate. I’ll spare the ugly details of  how this completely stressed us out, made us terribly sick, and even losing our jobs, and being financially devastated.

The Bottom Line: We live in a very toxic world that is simultaneously stressing us out and poisoning us from the inside out.  In other words, we all need to eat the best foods we can get our hands on, drink the cleanest water we can get, breathe the highest quality air and live in the healthiest homes we can find.   

Since my family was devastated by this hidden and toxic cloud of mold some 20 years ago, I have been on a mission to turn our family’s health challenges into something positive where he can help other families. Especially the moms who have such a big impact on the household’s overall health. 

To give back and turn this into something positive I've created an Institute where we helped over 8000 families overcome their environmental-related health issues. At the Institute, we developed Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) training programs and our team certified over 200 environmental specialists. 

These specialists learned pioneering protocols and procedures covering the inspection and remediation of environmental related contamination including mold and other indoor toxins. We were a true pioneer in the field of health-conscious home repair and maintenance.  

We also met and worked with some amazing doctors, wellness coaches, and alternative practitioners who have encouraged us to share our story, move this mission forward and develop affordable, smart and healthy home solutions.

I'm happy to say that I've developed nationally recognized healthy home solutions, have written 4 books and developed family related wellness programs. However, I'm especially proud that I was able to coach and mentored my son in the business of healthy home environments since he was around 12 years old. Jon often tells me how much he enjoys helping families like ours and making a difference in our client's health. 

As you can tell, my son and I are both very passionate, completely dedicated, and on a mission to help other families suffering from difficult health challenges.  

To Your Health and Wellness,
