Why do some new houses make me sick when I go to view them?

Why do some new houses make me sick when I go to view them?

Toxic chemicals: New houses are pretty air tight in construction.

Your sensitivity makes me worry that you already have a load of toxins on board and your detox systems may not be doing to well. See a functional med doc to evaluate and treat. ...Read more

The : The only way to know if someone is pregnant is for them to take a pregnancy test. She can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since her last normal period, or she can go see her doctor and they can test her. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. A blood test can tell if she is pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if she is pregnant around when her next period should come. ...Read more

Take him to the dr: Insurance should not be the primary concern, your two year old should be. I am sure that you get groceries and gas even though your insurance does not cover these items. Sometimes you can negotiate in advance for a cash price. ...Read more
