This episode, our clinic’s very own Dr. Scott and I get personal about our own health journeys, talking about what has worked and what hasn’t. Dr. Scott opens up about how he approached his mold toxicity symptoms of brain fog, fatigue, and loose stools with several remedies — only to find that mold may not be the underlying cause. We also dive deep into the mental and physical health benefits of exercise and two patient success stories who found relief by doing less, not more.
