Moldy: Identification and Treatment of Mold Related Illness
Dr. McCann will discuss the scope of the problem of mold and mycotoxins: focusing specifically on the condition called Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome – CIRS. She will review the diagnostic criteria for CIRS, covering the biomarkers and work up. She will cover treatment protocols as outlined by Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker and others. Substantial time will be devoted to sharing patients cases that highlight significant aspects of diagnosis and management of this debilitating condition. Unique treatment strategies will include the use of homeopathic detox, phosphatidyl choline and membrane stabilizing therapies.
