24% of the population have a defective detoxification gene. This is called Biotoxin Disease. I am one of those people and have been through a roller coaster myself, until I discovered what was going on. There are MANY, MANY help sites for mold, but none of them address this basic fact that 24% of the population has gene defects and simply cannot get mold and other toxins like food additives, alcohol etc. out of their bodies. These toxins accumulate and no matter what we do, we get worse and worse.
There is an immense body of knowledge on Dr. Shoemaker's website www.survivingmold.com, where you can also find certified physiciansto help you detoxify the mold--and it is entirely possible. Dr. Shoemaker's website has a VCS test on the website ($15), which you should do first. If you fail this test, save the PDF of the test and contact one of the certified doctors. This VCS test is also a test you take throughout treatment. Your numbers will improve as your body detoxes. It will take time, but it works. Don't be alarmed that this test is a eye-test--that's totally weird, I know--but it is a very effective (and affordable) way of tracking recovery. For example, I was well on my way to recovery when my VCS numbers got worse again. We then notices that the mold we thought we had remediated had returned. You will also be given references to testing your environment for mold because you must first identify where the mold is coming from and completely eliminate it (or move).
I was really excited to get my hands on Dave's research. I have never been able to drink coffee, but am doing wonderfully on Dave's product. The Biotoxin Disease community need to know about this book!
