Most healthcare providers and patients are often looking for alternatives to pharmaceutical therapies when addressing various, acute and chronic, painful and inflammatory conditions.

Understanding mould toxicity

As a practitioner I witness many incredibly challenging personal journeys.  Often clients come to me as a last resort because conventional medicine in all its glory can often miss an all too common underlying issue of mould toxicity. 

It isn’t uncommon to hear clients have been told ‘its all in your head’ or ‘just rest and it will pass’.  Unfortunately, these types of comments not only aren’t the case (if only it were that simple), they can be quite damaging to the client’s overall spirit and mental state, leaving them feeling confused, discouraged, doubting themselves, and often more depressed and symptomatic.
