Where to find a mold doctor:

A physician who has expertise in environmental medicine and mold-related illness. In addition to providing contact information for doctgors, this document discusses the decision to consult a physician who has expertise in mold and mold related illness.

We suggest a few questions to ask your doctor about the possibility of building-related illness, we include a list of physicians with expertise in mold and environmental medicine, and we provide a article series that can help you assess the risk of mold related illness in a building.

Professional remediation was not needed for the mold cleanup of the area shown at the top of this page, and the mold-related-illness risk to building occupants from this mold contamination was insignificant.

      Dr. Alexander Haskell is licensed Naturopathic Physician with 30 years of experience. Mold exposure is in the background of many chronic illnesses and is seldom considered as an underlying cause or etiology by most physicians. We use darkfield microscopy, EAV testing and household mold testing for assessment. Therapies to reduce the body's burden of molds are oxidative treatments [Major Autohemotherapy (ozone) and hydrogen peroxide] and detoxification protocols including ozone saunas and lymphatic hydrotherapy.
      Of course other systems which have been negatively affected by and overwhelmed from chronic mold exposure such as adrenals, thyroid, intestines and the immune system must also be addressed and supported.
