Did you know that mold can cause problems in major systems of your body? Mold toxicity—also known as a biotoxin illness—is a real thing. Keep reading to learn how serious it can be!
What is mold toxicity?
The official medical diagnosis is called Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS). Mold toxicity is an inflammation within the body, not an allergy. Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker, MD was the first doctor who really pioneered the initial research of mold toxicity and identified that it leads directly to CIRS.
Dr. Shoemaker’s definition of biotoxin illness is as follows:
“An acute and chronic, systemic inflammatory response syndrome (a group of characteristic symptoms) acquired following exposure to the interior environment of a water-damaged building with resident toxigenic organisms, including, but not limited to fungi, bacteria, actinomycetes and mycobacteria as well as inflammagens such as endotoxins, beta glucans, hemolysins, proteinases, mannans and possibly spirocyclic drimanes; as well as volatile organic compounds”.
What are mold toxicity symptoms?
Unfortunately, CIRS symptoms are overlooked and misdiagnosed quite often. Why? Symptoms caused my CIRS are not specific. Most doctors simply are not considering mold toxicity to be a root cause and people may have similarities of other syndromes and diseases like the following:
- Chronic fatigue
- Muscle aches and cramps
- Brain fog
- Long term effects can lead to Dementia-like symptoms

Our patient’s mold toxicity testimonial (video)
We were able to relieve one of our patients from a five-year battle of mold toxicity. Listen to her explain the steps she took, tests her mainstream doctor ran only to find misdiagnoses, and how Dr. Ernesto Medina helped her.
Problems with mold toxicity in conventional medicine
The role mold exposure can have on people’s health is poorly understood in conventional medicine, and proper diagnostic testing methods are not fully understood in conventional hospitals or medical clinic settings. If you listen to our patient’s testimonial, you’ll hear her discuss being misdiagnosed for five years by one of the biggest hospital centers in the Bay Area.
We can help you!
It’s important to find a doctor who understands mold-related illnesses. Laboratories that focus on mold toxicity testing are necessary to measure a person’s exposure. Currently, the most specific way to test for it is through urine testing through specialized laboratories.
