There is no link between mold and CFS. CFS up to minute
research being conducted by U Miami (Dr Nancy Klimas, Dr
Erma Rey) and by Dr John Chia,Torrance, CA., as well as the
NIH and Whitmore Peterson Institute who has been working on
CFIDS (same as CFS) for over 20 years are close to proving
that CFS is caused by an RNA (Ribonucleic acid) virus. AIDS
is also an RNA virus.
Example: If a patient has a DNA virus (Deoxynucleic)they
will recover and get better. With RNA viruses people do not
recover which is why chronic fatigue persists. Just as in
AIDS/HIV...once Gallo discovered the actual AIDS virus,
drugs were made to slow down and halt the replication of the
virus and viral load. These pts. still have HIV, some AIDS
(cell count below 200)since the virus does not GO AWAY.
As an RN for 30 years and living with CFIDS, believe me,
Mold does not cause chronic fatigue. As a lawyer with
experts who are world renowned, you might be laughed out of
court. My recommendation to you would be to have this client
have a much more detailed work up with a CFS expert.
An MD may say that they are experts in CFS, but there are
only a handful that REALLY ARE THE EXPERTS and I gave you
the top 3 for no charge!!!
