Mold toxicity is a hidden culprit behind many chronic illnesses, affecting countless individuals without them even realizing the cause. When living or working in water-damaged buildings, people can inhale mold spores, which then colonize various parts of the body, creating a biofilm that protects the fungi and allows them to produce harmful mycotoxins. These mycotoxins can lead to a wide array of symptoms, including brain fog, memory problems, cognitive impairments, mood swings, numbness, tingling, sensitivity to touch, reactivation of viruses like Epstein-Barr, weight gain, disrupted hormonal function, chronic sinus congestion, cough, chest pain, shortness of breath, impaired digestive function, persistent fatigue, and a general feeling of being unwell. As these toxins impair the body’s detoxification mechanisms, other toxins such as heavy metals and pesticides begin to accumulate, creating a downward spiral into worsening health.

Conventional medicine often overlooks mold toxicity, leaving many sufferers without adequate treatment options. As a Chinese medical practitioner, you have the unique ability to address these complex health issues using Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) strategies. This course will equip you with the tools to diagnose, treat, and prevent mold-related illnesses effectively. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of different types of molds, mycotoxins, and their severe health impacts. You will also master the art of diagnosing mold toxicity using TCM methods, including pulse and tongue diagnosis, along with case studies and practical exercises. Additionally, you will learn about powerful anti-fungal herbs and how to formulate personalized treatment plans to eradicate fungal colonization and support detoxification. You will explore detoxification pathways and utilize bile acid sequestrants and other binders to facilitate the removal of mycotoxins and other accumulated toxins from the body. Furthermore, you will learn to order and interpret urinary mycotoxin tests and other relevant lab work to confirm diagnoses, and integrate dietary and lifestyle recommendations to support the body’s natural defenses and prevent future mold exposure.

In this class, we will also address ethical considerations related to treating patients with complex chronic illnesses, including environmental toxins, medical gaslighting, public health concerns, and building safety. By the end of the course, you will be empowered to provide relief to patients suffering from mold toxicity and enhance their quality of life with effective, holistic treatments. Join us in this in-depth exploration of mold and mycotoxins toxicity through the lens of TCM, and unlock the potential to combat this often-overlooked condition.

Upon completion of this course, practitioners will:

  • Define signs, symptoms, detoxification pathways and medical pathophysiology associated with mold toxicity and elevated toxic burdens.
  • Summarize the ordering of labs associated with Mycotoxin Illness, including urinary mycotoxin testing, organic acid testing and blood work.
  • Apply the use of bile acid sequestrants, aka “binders”, in eradication of toxins from the body.
  • Formulate herbal treatment plans to help to eradicate fungal colonization of the nasopharynx, gastrointestinal tract and genitourinary systems.
  • Identify and discuss the medical ethical issues associated with patients suffering from complex chronic medical illness including environmental toxins, mold toxins, medical gaslighting, aspects of public health and building safety.
