Mold Tests vs Mold Avoidance?
Oct. 24, 2019
Bryan Rosner makes a great case that your own body’s reaction is the best test for mold.
I would make the same argument for Lyme/MSIDS testing as it is so abysmal as well as extremely limited. An experienced practitioner will always diagnose clinically based upon symptoms. It’s important you become educated on symptoms as well. These symptoms will drive treatment.
I have found these checklists to be far more accurate than testing. Print them off, fill them out, and bring them with you to your appointments. In my experience, treating this is like peeling back the layers of an onion. You start out with a set of symptoms that waxes and wanes but then morphs into something else. Many feel that once you treat for Lyme and bring the germ load, coinfection symptoms will then become evident. Please know that the title “coinfection” doesn’t mean it’s less important then Lyme. These coinfections can be horrifically disabling.
