How Common is Mold?

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), “Molds are very common in buildings and homes.” And don’t assume new construction means you’re in the clear. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that dry wet areas within your home in 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth — meaning mold can grow in just two days!

Untreated & Undiagnosed Chronic Illness

Traditional western medicine tends to focus on treating a patient’s symptoms — rather than uncovering the root cause of the issue. Because mold toxicity often presents itself as allergies, it remains one of the most undiagnosed medical conditions. 

When the undiagnosed condition causes a chronic illness, traditional doctors aren’t trained to look for environmental causes. They simply resort to prescribing medication. 

Naturopathic doctors are trained to take a ‘whole person’ approach to chronic illness. This means learning about a patient’s medical history, family medical history, past living environment, current living environment, and any additional stressors that could be impacting their well-being.
