Mold Illness Expert

Mold Exposure Doctor in South Carolina

Mold illness is real and truly a silent epidemic. Sadly, 99% of the time it is missed and misdiagnosed as a mystery illness, or put off as something else. Mycotoxin poisoning (mycotoxicity) and invasive fungal infections just don’t go away. #readthatagain It can cause autoimmune disease and is often misdiagnosed as Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and Sarcoidosis. Causing health damage for years to come. Many patients approach us after years of a downward health spiral with no answers and a pile of lab results. Mold is common culprit. We use our in-depth patient questionnaire to learn about potential environmental exposures. When we suspect mold and the patient “is sure” they haven’t had any exposure, that is until we ask the right questions and do the right tests. In the end, finding out can be game-changing.

Do not delay if you suspect that someone you care about is being affected by mold illness. It is not always at home. We also see schools, dorms, apartment buildings, commercial buildings and restaurants making people ill. A silent epidemic of bad building practices and poor maintenance.

Clear the Mold, Confirm with Labs

This patient did many protocols without success before coming to us, she was amazed how quickly she saw results and gave permission to share her mycotoxin before and after results. Here is her review: My Stay + Heal at Deeper Healing was such an amazing experience. This is the first time that I have walked into a practice and truly felt that I was being taken care of head to toe, that MY particular needs would be addressed, and there would be a continuity of care plan. The amount of healing that I achieved as well as tools and knowledge for continuing to heal is mind boggling—more than I have achieved than the years of doing the protocol from a prestigious neuro-immune institute, and way more than I got from Cleveland. Cheryl, Florida

Dr. B‘s Mold Awakening…

As Paul Harvey would say “and now for the rest of the story”

For several years after beginning the practice of Functional Medicine I found that simply balancing hormones, fixing the gut, and helping people address their adrenal fatigue left about 20% of patients that were just not getting better as much as desired. Being a tenacious sort, I began to deep dive into the why? The answer came in a year-long Environmental Medicine course where I learned the impact of things like pesticides, herbicides, plastics, teflon, chemicals, toxic metals and mold on our health. This course was so impactful that I committed to devoting the rest of my life to helping people overcome illness due to environmental factors. I closed my Functional Medicine practice and moved halfway across the country to start an Environmental Medicine cleansing program at a very prestigious Functional Medicine Clinic. Quickly upon arrival I developed extreme fatigue followed by brain fog. My brain fog was so severe that while talking to a patient I began struggling to remember what I just asked. At the same time, my recent abdominal surgery that had been healing well started developing complications which landed me back in the hospital for more surgery. Even with the best minds at my fingertips, no one could understand what was happening.


Boom. One day walking in the lower level where the library was I noticed water leaking in during a rainstorm. It hit me like the concrete wall I was looking at; I wasn’t suffering from severe adrenal fatigue from my two surgeries, closing a practice and moving my family halfway across the country following my professional passion… I was suffering from mold illness. The timing could not have been worse, the mold exposure had caused dysregulation of my immune system at a critical healing time after surgery. Despite consulting with my colleagues and mentors in Functional and Environmental medicine, my downward spiral was difficult to stop in time for my surgeries to heal. Unfortunately, it led me to have to endure a total of 5 painful abdominal surgeries and through it I lost many feet of intestines.


To save my life, I dove deeply into mold recovery and at that time there were only two camps for mold illness. One program didn’t seem to address the mold directly and the other protocol addressed only the mold and not the other downstream effects on the body. I realized that neither were addressing the whole picture. So, through research, experimentation and testing, I developed my own hybrid program that I now offer to patients to successfully deal with all aspects of mold illness. I literally paid with my guts and hope that my journey will help others recover from the nightmare of mold illness.
