Eye opening Podcast

I have had the privilege of working with Dr. Yakel. For the past 2 years, not only was I under chronic stress, but I was also exposed to mold. I started exhibiting symptoms like anxiety, depression, fogginess, extreme fatigue, allergies, head and neck pain, twitches and nerve zaps. It wasn't until I start working with Dr. Yakel, that we discovered that I had CIRS. I am currently on a detoxification protocol and going for a neuroquant MRI to see the level of brain inflammation. Over the past few months I've learned a great deal on how mold toxicity can affect many bodily systems, even the endocrine( hormones) and the cardiovascular systems. I'm forever grateful to Dr. Yakel and all the other functional doctors getting to root causes of inflammation and disease. Please take a listen to this very informative and eye opening podcast.
