What is functional medicine?
Functional medicine works to understand the base cause of your symptoms. From there, the specialists in the field creates a treatment plan that targets the cause as opposed to just the symptoms. Since no two people or conditions are the same, each treatment plan is customized based on your ailment and needs.
How can I be exposed to mold?
Mold can be found both indoors and outdoors. It is commonly found in warm damp areas with high humidity levels. Typical places can be piles of cut grass or shrubs. It can also occur if damp places such as bathrooms are not properly ventilated.
Mold often grows after flooding or water intrusion. Whether a single room or the whole house was flooded, mold can grow if the area is not properly cleaned and dried. This can also be the case with water leaks through the ceilings and the walls. If you believe your house has mold, be sure to have an expert come out and inspect it.
