We use darkfield microscopy, EAV testing and household mold testing for assessment. Therapies to reduce the body's burden of molds are oxidative treatments [Major Autohemotherapy (ozone) and hydrogen peroxide] and detoxification protocols including ozone saunas and lymphatic hydrotherapy.
Of course other systems which have been negatively affected by and overwhelmed from chronic mold exposure such as adrenals, thyroid, intestines and the immune system must also be addressed and supported.

MD vs ND: What's the difference between an ND (Naturopathic Doctor) and an MD (Medical Doctor)?
A medical doctor (MD) holds a medical degree for practicing medicine and is authorized as a graduate of a college of medicine or osteopathy and who is subsequently licensed by a medical board in his or her state or province of practice.

A nauropathic doctor (ND) practices naturopathic medicine: a distinct primary health care profession, emphasizing prevention, treatment and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances which encourage the person's inherent self -healing process, the vis medicatrix naturae.
A naturopath uses treatment approaches that include diet, lifestyle, stress reduction, herbs, dietary supplements, homeopathy, manipulative therapy, exercise, psychotherapy.

At the U.S. NIH, nccih.nih.gov/health/naturopathy Naturopathy—also called naturopathic medicine—is a medical system that has evolved from a combination of traditional practices and health care approaches popular in Europe during the 19th century.
People visit naturopathic practitioners for various health-related purposes, including primary care, overall well-being, and treatment of illnesses.
In the United States, naturopathy is practiced by naturopathic physicians, traditional naturopaths, and other health care providers who also offer naturopathic services.

Can You Refer me to a Specific Mold Doctor or Specialist
I am emailing you to ask for a referral to a mold doctor. I live in an apartment infested with black mold. I have allergies, and suppressed immune system and as I have health insurance I cannot afford the co-pay to go see a doctor or be able to pay for the balance that my insurance does not meet.
Can you refer me to a doctor in my area that can assist me. I believe with all of my symptoms I have extensive exposure to black mold to a high level. I have researched the symptoms and realize I have mild skin breakouts in this past two weeks and respiratory problems that are indicative of black mold toxins. Please refer and advise if possible. I can travel to Portland if necessary. Can you also refer me to an agency that can help relocate me from this apartment? S.S.

You can find a physician specializing in environmental medicine and mold related illness by taking the following steps:
Ask your own personal physician or general practitioner for a referral to a doctor specializing in environmental medicine or mold related illness
Do the same search on the web using zip codes near your home
Watch out: If you already know that your home has large areas of toxic or allergenic mold (more than 30 sq.ft.) then you should probably be taking steps asap to remove yourself from that environment asap
- if you move, and if your home is proven to be badly mold contaminated, your possessions including soft goods, clothing, curtains, etc. will probably need to be cleaned. Do not let an amateur try performing a "mold cleanup job" in a very moldy home: the risk is that they make the problem worse by spreading moldy dust all over everything, making the workers or building occupants sick in the process.
Watch out: in the above message the writer refers to "black mold" - but not all black mold is harmful, and there are a great many molds of other colors that are at least as harmful or more harmful. Don't guess at the level of severity of a mold contamination by the color of the mold. See MOLD APPEARANCE - WHAT MOLD LOOKS LIKE and also Recognize Harmless Black Mold.
More Questions About Mold Causes and Finding a "Mold Doctor"
Why do I Have Mold and Mildew in My Closets and Bathrooms - due to my Air Conditioner? I Need a Mold Doctor
I have had a problem for almost 4 years in trying to get the installers of
my new air conditioning unit to find out why I have mold and mildew in my
closets and bathroom--never had any problems before installing the new
unit. It was installed in April--mold was covering the metal vents in
August after a hot summer--followed by their excuses as to why this would
happen--then in November I started felling dizzy--having muscle aches and
pains--went to the doctor and spent the next year and a half getting a
I was then diagnosed with fibromyalgia--I did not put the two
together for awhile. I have contacted an attorney and have had the vent
filters checked at a lab-tested positive for Aspergillus--Cladosporium--Hyphae--Penicillium/Aspergillus. The attorney
says that I will need a Doctor that will be able to connect the symptoms to
the diagnosis. I live 2 hours from Atlanta GA--Knoxville TN--Birmingham
Al. Any information will be helpful. L.G., GA TN
A competent onsite inspection by an expert usually finds additional clues that help accurately diagnose a problem. That said, here are some things to consider:
An air conditioning system that is not properly sized (for example one that is too big) may cool a building without dehumidifying it, leading to increased indoor moisture and potentially contributing to a mold problem. We explain this problem in detail at A/C Not Dehumidifying.
There could be other building sources of leaks or high moisture that contribute to or actually cause an indoor mold problem.
In looking for a "mold doctor" start by asking your own, or in this case your mom's own primary care physician for advice and a referral. But because the doctor knows the patient but not the patient's home environment, you might want to ask for an onsite visual inspection and case history-review performed by an experienced building diagnostician or even an experienced home inspector. Those experts (EXPERT DIRECTORY) should be good at finding likely sources of leaks or moisture - gating factors in indoor mold problems, and they also can keep an eye open for other hazards that you haven't noticed.
Proving that an illness is caused by a specific mold exposure is very difficult because of variations in individual health history and because most people are exposed to a wide variety of environments during their daily life.
As a (retired) onsite investigator and forensic lab operator often asked to study these concerns, my approach (DF) has been to avoid making claims of "proof" of mold related illness causation, and to focus on detecting whether or not there is an indoor mold problem present. If there is a large reservoir of problematic indoor mold it needs to be removed and its cause corrected.
It is also interesting to note that while there are more than a million mold species, the US FDA has approved just a few mold genera/species, less than ten, that may be used to prepare serums or chemicals used in testing for mold allergies.
Now it's surely true that there are going to be some chemical similarities between the "approved for testing" fungal species and others that may be in your environment, so the actual functional breadth of "mold exposure or mold allergy" testing may be more broad than you'd think. But surely there are other mold species found in our environment. So our OPINION is that while a positive reaction to a mold allergy or mold exposure test may be indicative, a negative reaction probably should not be taken as an assurance that there is no mold exposure.
Question: My mom has been living in a house with toxic black mold ...
My mom has been living in a house with toxic black mold in it for about 4 or 5 months. I want to get her seen by a doctor because she has seemed to be getting very sick. Are there any good doctors that specialize in mold that you can recommend for me? - A.R.
Because it can be difficult to find a physician who has the special expertise you are looking for, our first advice is always to start by asking your own, or in this case your mom's own primary care physician for advice and a referral. The primary care physician who knows your mom's health and health history can help be sure that you are pursuing the right avenue of medical investigation and care.
Question: suffering from mold poisoning, we need to find a specialist doctor

Question: how to find an environmental medicine doctor in Canada
I'm from Calgary Alberta, Canada and I believe I need to find a doctor that has experience with mold illness. The place that I work, I believe has mold underneath their sinks. I've been sent home from work four or five times, two of which I ended up in hospital and one of those times, taken in an ambulance.
This is what happens:
-Left side of my face swells up
-My eyes hurt
-I have a burning fever
-Shortness of breath (sometimes)
-Feelings of Constant Fatigue
-Memory Loss "Short Term"
-Chronic Sinus Infections
-Pain in the Joints and Muscles
-Swelling is painful
-Skin is itchy
-Losing coincidence (sometimes)
-On going headaches for sometimes days
Any information or a point in the right directions to finding someone that can help me out in Calgary Alberta, Canada would be a huge weight off me. No doctor I've seen has been able to help me. None of them seem to take me seriously or want to do any testing on me that isn't an allergy test. I've had allergy test and they come back negative. More of my co-workers are starting to get ill with the same symptoms that I have. One of my co-workers was taken to hospital as well in the same week I was. - D. Alberta, Canada 11/27/2013
Thank you for the referral question, D. - it helps us realize where we need to work on making our text more clear or more complete and I have in fact added more links to environmental health resources for Canadians as I will provide at a link below. Regarding suspected environmental illness, often a competent onsite inspection of the home or other places where you spend time and made by an expert finds additional clues that would permit a more accurate, complete, and authoritative answer than we can give by email alone. You will find additional depth and detail in articles at our website.
That said, try contacting EHA Alberta - Environmental Health Association of Alberta P.O. Box 25 Main Edmonton, AB, Canada T5J 2G9, Tel: 780-289-5719 , Email (use the website contact form), Website: www.eha-ab.ca
Let me know if the EHA for your province is helpful in locating a physician specializing in environmental medicine.
I've also posted additional and updated resources and contact information for Canadians at our home page for medical referral and doctor contacts in environmental medicine found in the article above.
