On today’s podcast, I interview mold expert Dr. Scott Richmond. Dr. Scott has gotten himself well from severe toxic mold exposure that cost him countless days in the hospital, six months away from his practice, and close to a million dollars. Now, feeling healthy and vibrant, he works with clients on mold, other biotoxic illness, and chronic health conditions. Along with Dr. Scott’s personal journey, in the podcast we’re covering the most common places in the house mold likes to hide, species and mycotoxins to look out for, and tips on interpreting an ERMI at-home mold test. Want to know the truth about mold spores and what the absolute worst type of mold is to look out for? Keep listening.

  1. I think mold is a more common problem than we’re aware of. The unreported or misdiagnosed symptoms because the mainstream medical system is making a huge profit from improperly diagnosed symptoms and not addressing the real cause for mold Toxicity symptoms. I’m living in a apartment with mold and our health department doesn’t recognize mold as much of an issue. My apartment was tested and the results indicated a serious problem with mold, but the landlord refuses to remediate the mold. I’ve been trying to relocate but haven’t yet. My bucket is about full and need to find ways to get through this mess. Thanks for your information about this problem!

  2. Do you think it’s possible to effectively remediate a house with mold to the extent that someone with big health issues can get well or is it better to just move?

  3. Is the HLA DR gene theory (with dreaded genes) by Dr. Shoemaker still a credible theory? I thought there was some question as to the validity of the different types. People definitely can become ill from mold, but I am trying to find more documentation supporting that theory.
    Thank you!
