Mould And Approaches To The Sensitive Patient

July 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

by Dr. Marna Turner

Mould is a ubiquitous presence in our environment, yet it is often overlooked and not well understood. Despite its prevalence, the health impacts of mould exposure are frequently underestimated. Mould can cause a variety of symptoms, including respiratory issues, allergic reactions, and cognitive impairments. Additionally, it can exacerbate the morbidity of other pre-existing conditions, making it a significant health concern.

In this talk, I will delve into the topic of mould and other mycotoxins, with a focus on their toxic effects on human health. Mycotoxins, which are toxic compounds produced by certain types of moulds, can lead to a range of serious health issues. Understanding the specific types of mycotoxins and their mechanisms of action is crucial for effective diagnosis and treatment.

I will also address common mistakes we often make with binding agents. Binding agents are substances used to help remove toxins from the body, but improper use can lead to ineffective treatment or even harm, especially in patients who are particularly sensitive. These patients may have heightened reactions to both the mould itself and the treatments used to combat it.

Dr. Turner brings a wealth of experience to the table as a seasoned medical professional with extensive expertise in treating vector-borne infections. Her journey into specializing in these diseases is deeply personal, stemming from her own experience as a patient failed by our current healthcare system. This firsthand encounter ignited her passion and commitment to understanding and addressing these often misunderstood illnesses.

As a member of both ILADS (International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society) and SASIM (South African Society of Integrative Medicine), Dr. Turner is deeply entrenched in the forefront of research and treatment modalities for vector-borne diseases. Her dedication to evidence-based practice is evident in every slide she presents, with meticulous referencing to ensure the highest standards of accuracy and credibility.

In addition to her medical qualifications, Dr. Turner is also a functional medicine practitioner, specializing in vector-borne diseases and mold-related illnesses. She has completed rigorous training, including the Lyme fundamentals and ILADS physician training, and recently returned from the prestigious ILADS Germany conference, where she further honed her skills and knowledge in this field.

Furthermore, Dr. Turner is privileged to be part of the Niel Nathan and Jill Christa Mentorship program, allowing her to continuously refine her approach and stay at the cutting edge of integrative medicine practices.
