Webinar | Mold Toxicity: Clinical Applications from Hypothesis to Symptom Resolution, including Testing and Treatments by Dr. Paola DeCicco, ND

Mold toxicity presents a significant public health concern, demanding a nuanced comprehension of its intricate dynamics as a primary contributor to chronic illness. This potent toxin can trigger a self-perpetuating cycle of inflammation, adversely affecting various bodily systems, encompassing immune, digestive, neurological, hormonal, musculoskeletal, and urogenital functions.

This lecture undertakes a thorough exploration of mold toxicity, commencing with an examination of mycotoxin exposure, its potential physiological ramifications, and the extensive array of symptomatic presentations it may entail. Moreover, it includes the complexities of genetic susceptibilities, which can influence an individual’s vulnerability to this toxin burden.

Furthermore, the discussion delves into the clinical implications of myotoxicity, encompassing strategies for patient and environmental testing, elucidation of treatment principles pertinent to this condition, and the consideration of additional factors such as electromagnetic field sensitivities, multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that often complicate the clinical picture in mold toxic patients.

By emphasizing clinical relevance, the lecture contextualizes these insights within the framework of real-life cases drawn from the presenter’s practice. Ultimately, the aim is to empower practitioners by furnishing them with the knowledge and tools necessary for the assessment and mitigation of mold toxicity. This equips them to assist patients in identifying, addressing, and resolving the underlying cause of their chronic health challenges.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this lecture, the clinician will be able to:

  • Gain understanding of when to consider mold toxicity as the primary underlying cause of chronic health challenges
  • Learn the indications for testing both patients and their environments and how to interpret the resulting laboratory findings
  • Explore the role of genetics in determining individual susceptibility to mold-related symptoms 
  • Develop skills in crafting personalized protocols tailored to individual symptoms and mycotoxin test results
  • Review five key treatment strategies aimed at achieving optimal clinical outcomes
  • Gain insight into the lesser-discussed challenges that may exacerbate symptoms for individuals undergoing mold protocols
  • Witness the application of these concepts through the detailed analysis of two distinct real-life cases united by a shared root cause of toxic mold exposure

Dr Paola DeCicco, ND

In naturopathic medical practice since 2004, I have been committed to refining my detective skills, working tirelessly to leave no stone unturned in my quest to identify the underlying root causes of each individual patient’s disease. Whether it be an autoimmune condition, a genetic anomaly, a digestive issue, a hormonal imbalance, an environmental toxin exposure, a mental health challenge, or a neurological ailment, I delve into each patient’s story to help them identify and address the vulnerabilities, triggers and contributing factors fueling their dis-ease. 

Over these many years, I have lectured extensively in both English & French to the public and healthcare providers alike, with numerous appearances in print, radio, and TV. 

I am an active member of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND), the Quebec Association of Naturopathic medicine (QANM), the Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physicians (OncANP), and the Naturopathic Academy of Environmental Medicine (NAEM).
