“Being able to consult with Paula is like having a national expert in the field of healthy house building standing on my construction site. If you are building a home, there are so many health issues – and frankly so much money – at stake that you need to do things properly the first time. I can’t overstate how important it has been to me to be able to consult with Paula.”
~ David Shapiro, MD., Santa Barbara, CA
