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

In brief: Toxic chemicals

New houses are pretty air tight in construction.
Add to that all the glues, varnishes, synthetic chemicals in carpet, cabinets, laminate flooring, etc and you walk into a chemical soup of toxins that can damage your health. 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.
