Understanding the symptoms, diagnosis and what you can do about mold. It's everywhere no matter where you live. Plus it can be difficult to diagnose someone with mold toxicity; it can mimic many other conditions and symptoms that are nonspecific. It seems conventional medicine will throw another disease at you instead of doing proper testing.
Mold grows in damp, warm, and humid locations, inside and outside. Even if you live in a dry location mold can be a problem if there are water leaks, poorly ventilated bathrooms, or floods. Would you believe that half of buildings in the United States are water damaged?
Mold toxicity falls under the larger category of a biotoxin illness, also known as Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS). Ritchie Shoemaker, MD, has been researching mold for many years. His website is called Surviving Mold and explains in detail how your health can deteriorate and how to help the body get well. Don't hesitate to ask your doctor for a specific test if you feel you have been exposed.
