In this episode, join Sinclair Kennally and special guest Dr. Jess Peatross as they delve into the root causes of chronic illnesses and shed light on the often-overlooked role of mold. Discover why even experienced functional medicine physicians can struggle to recognize and address mold-related issues, and learn about the vital importance of supporting the body's healing journey from the effects of mold exposure.

Did you know that mold can significantly impact your health, despite it often being unrecognized by medical professionals? Dr. Shoemaker's research reveals that mold can trigger a cytokine storm, disrupting the balance between an overactive and underactive immune system. This imbalance can lead to various health issues, including genetic susceptibility, autoimmunity, depression, anxiety, postural orthostatic tachycardic syndrome, Hashimoto's, sarcoidosis, and lupus. It's time to understand the connection between mold and these health challenges and take the necessary steps to protect yourself.

Discover the surprising link between mold and hormones. Mold can rapidly grow in porous materials, such as wood and seat pads, within 24-48 hours. Certain mold species, like zearalenone and ochratoxin, are known endocrine disruptors and hormone mimickers. Studies have shown that these species can trigger an estrogen domino effect, further impacting your hormonal balance.
