    An Integrative Approach to Treating Mold Illness

    An Integrative Approach to Treating Mold Illness

    Treating mold illness can be challenging. That’s why an integrative approach to diagnosis and treatment is often needed. In this interview, Eric Dorninger, ND, LAc, describes his integrative mold illness protocol. At his practice in Louisville, CO, Dorninger is well-versed in finding and treating underlying causes of chronic illness, which includes mold illness.

    About the Expert
    Eric Dorninger, ND, LAc, began his healthcare journey with a pre-med degree from the University of Colorado, Boulder, where he immersed himself in diverse medical experiences, from volunteering at Porter Care Hospice to training as an EMT under herbalist Brigette Mars. His passion for holistic healing led him to pursue a doctor of naturopathic medicine and master of science in acupuncture at Bastyr University, culminating in a residency in naturopathic primary care. In 2005, he founded Roots and Branches Integrative Health Care, focusing on uncovering the root causes of chronic illness. Dorninger is not concerned with “what you have” as much as he is with “why you have it.” He uses reproducible, validated labs and imaging to find hidden, underlying causes of mystery illnesses and brings a relentlessly thorough diagnostic approach to solving the riddles of chronic illness. Dorninger's commitment to innovative diagnosis and treatment extends to his role as a certified Shoemaker practitioner, educator, researcher, and podcast host, enriching the field with his holistic approach to health and wellness.

    Taking a Closer Look at the Potential of AI in Healthcare

    Artificial intelligence (AI) is dominating headlines and dinner table conversations, and many of us are interested in understanding the impacts it may have on our lives and our practices.

Outstandingly good content

I wss just looking for a specific topic, but I found a treasure trove of next gen medical thinking. Love the podcast, love how technical you get while still being accessible. Keep it up. My family has been dependant on naturopathic medicine for years now and there have been so many minor issues that we have been able to address without having to medicate.

Quality Counts ,

Selling you on the Jab?

Promoting the CV jab, without discussing almost 7000 deaths and five-hundred thousand injuries (with only partial reporting to VAERS), including children. Also no mention of viable medical options which have a track record. Run away from this podcast. Do some real homework and realize the truth is being suppressed. It just might save your life.
