I think of the International Society for Environmentally Acquired Illness (ISEAI) – now in its second year – not just as an organization but as a movement – a movement dedicated to bringing mold, pathogenic and chemically induced illnesses out of the shadows and into the light.
If chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and fibromyalgia (FM) have been neglected by the medical profession, mold and chemically induced diseases have been even more so. Even though they figure in a subset of ME/CFS/FM patients, some ME/CFS/FM practitioners are flummoxed by how to assess them and treat them. Yet the mold and environmental illness field is bringing forth new testing procedures and therapies that might be able to benefit many.
Registration Opportunity for Patients
The ISEAI conference in the past has been presented for professionals in the field, but the four-day ISEAI conference (including the pre-conference day) this year comes with a bonus – the opportunity to join the ISEAI for just $99 a year as a Non-Professional Supporting Member. You’ll then be able to view the pre-conference talks and select talks from the conference on the organization’s private Facebook site.
By becoming an Non-Professional Supporting Member, you get to support a vital new organization, and get access to the latest insights from environmental illness practitioners. You’ll also have access to news, information and discussions from the organization for the next year.
The fact that the conference starts tomorrow doesn’t really matter for our purposes as ISEAI will be downloading select talks from the conference to its members-only Facebook site over the next couple of weeks. It has already downloaded talks from the pre-conference on Sept. 26th there.
