Thanks Issie,There is an actual protocol in treatment for this. Each step has to be done in order and not before you reach a certain level of healing in each step do you proceed to the next. You can't just get VIP and start using it. Your Lipase levels have to be continually Checked even while on it. I've been working on mold for 3 years now. I had some great advisors and I enjoy science and read a lot. But not until I got a doc trained in this and encouraging me to stick with it - do I feel I'm making headway. I have to look at the small improvements because nothing is coming fast. But I've got a lot going on.....so I will take longer. Diet is really important. There is also a sorting to figure out things as to reactions and why etc. For me, we know I had a tick bite and was very sick when it got found. So that is a complicating issue. I test positive to coinfections. And genetically have the worst ones and inability to throw off mold or toxins. And I have some significant autoimmune issues going on. I would suggest you find a doc trained in this. My doc (and Ryans) after initial consult will do phone conference. So that's an option if you don't have a doc or can't travel. My sister and her son have this too. Even though her doc doesn't have the certification as a CIRS or Lyme doc - she knows what she is doing. So the Docs are out there, you have to search for them. I'm like you, spent lots of money and had a lot of dead ends. But each journey has brought me more answers.
So along the way did you ever discover any beneficial remedies for particular ailments? I don't disagree that mold is likely a contributor as well as genetics but at this point Lyme and Mold docs are no longer in the budget. Thanks, Thomas.
