Green home experts Ron and Lisa Beres with Matt Lauer of The Today Show.
I was over the ‘south bay’ moon when I moved into my newly remodeled California beach cottage over 9 years ago. It had new, plush carpeting, white thermafoil kitchen cabinets, a fresh new coat of paint, and an adorable little gas fireplace. Ahhhhhhh, that “new‑home smell” was proof positive that everything was fresh and clean! But pretty soon I was having trouble getting out of bed in the morning. I’ve always been a high-energy person, but suddenly I was tired all the time. I began experiencing flu-like symptoms and my hormones were going haywire. I went to doctors, naturopaths, endocrinologists, chiropractors, and acupuncturists. None of them could tell me what was wrong. That’s when I began researching. Could my “clean, fresh, new abode” be the cause of my troubles? I discovered how toxins in our homes, food, and personal care products can bioaccumulate and wreak havoc on our bodies by creating a multitude of illnesses and diseases. I made changes to my home. My health returned… and I found a new calling.
Healthy Home Expert – A New Calling.
In 2002, Lisa Beres, a former interior designer, started feeling run down and tired all of the time suffering from chronic fatigue, sinus infections, hormone imbalances and lowered immunity after moving into a newly remodeled home. She was well aware of the abundance of toxic materials that exist in homes today from her experience as an interior designer, but was unaware these materials can off gas as dangerous chemicals into the air we breathe (ie: that “new home smell”). Lisa then began a journey in search of answers. After much research and a dozen doctor visits, she came to the conclusion that her house and products within the home were making her sick!
Building Biologists (BBEI) and Certified Green Building Professionals (CGBP).
It was through her research that Lisa decided to become a BBEI/Building Biologist (Building Biology —a study derived from Germany which encompasses how buildings impact life and the living environment). With her B.A. from Arizona State University already under her belt, she then decided to incorporate her two passions in life–interior design and health. After making the necessary adjustments in their home, her health gradually improved to a 180 degree turnaround and she and her husband Ron decided to help other people in their endless efforts to attain optimal health. Together with Ron who earned his B.A. from George Mason University, they chose to seek “greener pastures.” In addition, Ron is also a BBEC/Building Biologist and he and Lisa are also Certified Green Building Professionals.
