This interview was part of a special webinar that was recently done for members of the Association of Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioners (AFDNP). But the topic of mold illness is an important one and toxic mold is affecting the health of so many people that Reed Davis felt that it was vital to share this information with health coaches, alternative health practitioners and the general public.
Mold is everywhere…and is particularly a problem in areas that see high amounts of rain, flooding, hurricanes and tropical storms. And although you can sometimes see it in your home or workplace, often times it goes unseen. And most people aren’t aware of a growing problem with toxic mold exposure and the resulting health issues that come from being exposed.
Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome, otherwise known as mold illness, is becoming more widespread and that, health coaches need to be able to recognize this issue when working with clients.
