The Problems

Modern medicine rarely considers environmental causes of illness

Western medicine often does not recognize mold as the cause of chronic illness outside of allergies. This is primarily because traditional medical schools do not teach to identify environmental components to disease. Traditional physicians diagnose based on symptoms and treat primarily with prescription medicines. However, if the symptoms are treated and the person returns to their contaminated environment, the illness will return. In addition, prescribed medicines can cause adverse effects or toxicities to those that suffer from environmental illness.

Finding a Mold-Literate Doctor Is Difficult

One of the difficulties of being mold sick is finding a doctor who has the knowledge to treat and help you. Patients with mold illness want to find a physician who specifically treats environmental illness, these physicians often have integrative and/or functional medicine backgrounds. Find a qualified physician at the International Society of Environmentally Acquire Illness (ISEAI) website.

Mold Prevention & Recommendations

A DIY Approach to Recovering from Mold Illness

DIY mold recovery can be compared to DIY electrical work or DIY plumbing. They are often performed by professionals, but you are fully capable of plunging a toilet or flipping a breaker. With the right attitude and research, you can improve your health and recover from mold illness.

Working with a professional is always best, but what do you do if:

    • You cannot afford to work with a doctor that specializes in mold illness?
    • You do not have a mold doctor in your area?
    • All mold doctors have a long waiting list to see you?

Treat Mold In Your Environment


Stopping exposure to the mold is essential before doing anything else. This usually means treating your environment for mold or moving. Walter Hayhurst, mold treatment pioneer, has said “If I had a dollar to spend on mold, I’d spend eighty cents on fixing my environment and twenty cents on medical.” This emphasizes the fact that if you do not get out of mold, no amount of treatment will be adequate to get you well.
