Mold toxicity is a complex multisystem illness that can have a broad range of clinical symptoms. It is estimated that millions of people are affected by mycotoxin illness, yet it goes unrecognized by most medical practitioners. In this webinar, functional medicine physician Dr. Scott Jamison will provide an overview of mycotoxin illness, its clinical presentations, and general treatment protocols.
You’ve seen it. You’ve heard about it. You may even have some of it lurking in your basement. But do you know just how much it can actually influence your health? Mold is everywhere. It travels through the air outside and inside in the form of spores, and you inhale them regularly. For the most part, these spores are harmless. But the real trouble comes when spores find patches of moisture and grow into toxic mold that can continue to grow in places where you spend a lot of time — like your home or your office building. When toxic mold is present indoors in your space, it becomes a much more constant threat to your health.

In this webinar, cardiologist and CEO Dr. Lauren Munsch Dal Farra explores the impact sugar has on the heart and why you may want to stick with flowers for your sweetheart.
