    Call Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker. He has patients who are suffering
    from "toxic mold" and chemical sensitivities. He and Dr. Ken
    Hudnell (neurotoxicologist) have really set the bar high for
    others. They actually get people well again. Dr. Shoemaker
    just found a diagnosis covered by most insurance companies
    has to do with lung function that seems to affict ones
    from toxic mold exposure. He has also found an interesting
    treatment protocol for chronic fatique syndrome that is
    associated with toxic mold and chemical sensitivities. He is
    busy it take at least 4 weeks to get an appointment.

    Caoimhin has his theories and the the rest of the world has
    theories. He is correct about mold mycotoxins being an issue
    ingesting high quantities of moldy foods. His web page is a
    listing of the "it ain't mold" studies. His page has some
    ommisions that he may have missed while doing the tireless
    searches or even worse, he actually goes to the library
    a university library)and reads the periodic journals for
    scientific citations. The latter is something many have
    forgotten or no longer try to do.

    His statement about a "disfunctional psychological component"
    an unfair assault on the mental state of people who claim to
    suffer sensitivities many chemical they smell but can not
    identify. While odors seem to trigger complaints, I have
    that aldehydes (natural and manmade) and chlorinated solvents
    seem to really get the "chemicall sensitive" going. I use the
    teerm "chemically sensitive" because I think Caoimhin is
    about MCS being a term that is too vague.

    Mold can be very toxic if the right type is growing in the
    environment. The more wet the potentially toxic mold gets,
    higher the mycotoxin production. Mold is a very complex life
    and many "experts" do not have the knowledge to adequately
    the situation.

    Caoimhin's big hang-up seems to be warning us about
    the "charlatans". They do exist and spotting them is easy.
    for references for statements that appear to be based on
    if services are rendered. Ask for a professional insurance
    policy certificate (or Errors and Ommisions insurance policy)
    with specific language for environmental investigations that
    include microbial problems. Certifications are only
    meaningful is
    they can produce this insurance policy certificate. You would
    surprised at how few of the "alleged" experts have the

    I hope this helps you,
