This week, it is a great pleasure to welcome Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker, a practicing physician and pioneer in understanding how low dose neurotoxin exposure, including toxic mold and algae, impacts our brains, vision, inflammation, and guts. About 28% of people have genes that make them very susceptible to these toxins, and everyone else is impacted to varying degrees. There is a clear and strong link between autoimmune conditions, gluten intolerance, celiac, psoriasis, arthritis, cardiovascular disease, and mold exposure. Amongst my high performance clients, removing environmental toxins from mold is quite often a part of making people as strong and resilient as they can be.

Dr. Shoemaker is the author of eight books and multiple published academic papers. His latest book Surviving Mold: Life in the Era of Dangerous Buildings is a guide through diagnosis and treatment, remediation and a return to health. He is an expert on mold and other biotoxins, having “looked death in the face” from his own mold-related illness. He lectures throughout the US on chronic inflammatory illnesses that are caused by exposure to moldy buildings and mycotoxins.

You will learn how your own genetics determine how you’ll respond to environmental toxins, and why mold and other microbes growing in water-damaged buildings make people sick.
