Creating a Healthy, Happy, Holistic Home for Your Family with Bau-Biologist Mary Cordaro

Aired Thursday, 18 February 2016, 7:00 PM ET

So, you’ve committed to raising your family in a healthy, holistic manner. You go out of your way to source the best and healthiest organic foods, you’re careful about what you expose them to, but how can you be sure that all your efforts are not being compromised by EMF’s, toxic contaminants, mold, and other things in your home that could undo all your good work and put your family at risk?

About the Guest Mary Cordaro

Creating healthy home environments has been Mary Cordaro’s deepest passion and professional field since 1989. She consults one-on-one with homeowners, parents and soon-to-be parents, architects, builders and commercial building owners as well as environmentally and chemically sensitive individuals. If you’ve been struggling on your own to understand all the information that’s available, or have exhausted all other possible solutions, or simply want to build, remodel or make simple, healthy changes to your home or workplace, Mary is the go-to expert on the all the healthiest (beyond green) building and remodeling materials and products, as well as EMF (electromagnetic field) avoidance, and the healthiest approaches to heating/cooling/ventilation, and air and water filtration. She also offers tips on hunting down truly healthy products for babies and children. I communicate directly with manufactures’ technical departments on ingredients in building materials.

Mary works with the strictest standard of health for homes from the German field of Bau-Biologie, in which she became certified in 1992. These standards, which are geared for even the most sensitive among us, including the developing fetus and the chemically sensitive, go well beyond green marketing jargon as well as standard green certifications, all of which are limited to varying degrees.

Using over two decades of experience, plus my academic and professional background in adult learning and instructional design, Mary lectures and teaches around the country to design professionals, medical doctors and the general public.
