Hi, and welcome to The Healthier Home! I love that you’re here.
My name is Chris McPhie and I am a passionate educator on healthy living. I’m a certified Building Biologist Environmental Consultant and Electromagnetic Radiation Specialist. Building Biology is the science of how buildings affect the health of their occupants, taking a holistic view and incorporating many disciplines in creating spaces optimized for human health. I specialize in assessing and cleaning up the electromagnetic environment that we live in.
I was first alerted to the EMF issue in 2016, when my daughter was 2 years old. She was undergoing testing and came back with EMF sensitivities. Before this, I had only vaguely heard of EMF’s and was unaware of their health impacts. After delving into the research I was shocked by what I found. It became clear to me that there was a great deal we could do to improve our health by fixing issues within our own living spaces.
In my previous career as an elementary school teacher, I observed the dramatic rise in wireless technology being used within the schools. There was very little awareness or discussion of how to use this technology safely. There still exists a large disconnect between what people believe is safe and what the research tells us. I became acutely aware of the increasing number of health issues affecting the students around me and it was clear to me that I needed to help. I decided to leave my teaching career and fully devote my time and energy to helping people create healthier indoor spaces.
We spend roughly 90% of our lives indoors; in buildings that are designed and brought to a code that does not factor in the long-term health of its occupants. It will be structurally sound but it may be releasing large amounts of radioactive gas (Radon), have multiple wireless devices and have mould throughout the walls, all negatively affecting your health. There is an abundance of information available on strategies and changes that anyone can make, often inexpensively, to drastically improve the health of their home, and in turn the health of everyone inside. I am dedicated to sharing this knowledge and empowering you to lead a healthier and happier life.
