How do we approach environmental toxicity?
At Medical Transformation Center, we offer testing for the presence of toxins as well as the body’s ability to control an inflammatory response to those toxins. From there, our providers create a treatment plan that targets the cause as opposed to just the symptoms, afterwards focusing on recovery of function. Since no two people or conditions are the same, each Personal Transformation 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 before you experience symptoms from mold exposure.

What can I do after I’ve been exposed to mold?
If you think you’ve been exposed to mold, the most important thing is to first find out where it is coming from! Ideally, you would like to find out the source, remediate existing mold damage, and then work on cleaning your body out, as you risk continual re-exposure without addressing the source. If you won’t be exposed again, or you would like medical support while you remediate, come in to see the professionals at Medical Transformation Center as soon as possible. We will begin a targeted detox protocol, flushing the mold toxins from your system. From there, we help your immune system modulate back to normal function, which can include antioxidants, peptides, nutritional supplements and other tools. Each plan will be based on your unique situation so be sure to tell our specialists everything. Don’t fight mold exposure on your own.

"I am 32, I was a patient of Carl Paige most of my adolescence. He was even my children's doctor when born. If there was a human I wished lived forever. It would be him for sure, he is so great and caring. I wish he was still in family medicine, but also happy that this man has calmed his practice down. He was a very busy man, in some offices that he was in. It was almost impossible to get in to see him, because he was so busy. No other doctor measures up in my eyes."
