"We really do have an epidemic with mold and everyday toxins.
Many of our health issues are being caused by simple things like a
leak in the house that we forgot about or these little invisible
bits that we're easily exposed to such as the aluminum from a can
of sparkling water or a skincare product that has BPA plastics.
Once all of these toxins accumulate, they really start interfering
with our hormones, DNA expression, and so many different areas of
the body just depending on where the weak spot is." - Dr.

Mold toxicity is
often the underlying cause of medical illnesses, yet is frequently
undiagnosed. Beyond allergy and asthma symptoms, some of the
chemicals that molds make are poisonous. Many people are surprised
to find that their symptoms are caused by hidden toxic mold in
their homes, work, cars or schools. Mold toxins can affect all
systems in the body and causes a vast array of symptoms. Dr. Shippy
offers a workbook with her functional medicine approach that
provides a solid foundation for identifying the problem and
medically-proven solutions for recovering.
Power Quotes From The Show
Identifying Mold Symptoms & Your Weak Link
"Some people can experience strange symptoms from mold toxins
like muscle jumping that's called fasciculation, extreme cramps,
and even intense shooting pain in the head. Then there are more
common symptoms like I had with extreme fatigue, hair falling out,
headaches, brain fog, OCD, depersonalization or increased anxiety
and depression but it just depends on where your weak link is."
- Dr. Ann Shippy
Shifting The Mindset On Health As We Age
"We can get better with age and that mentality is so perfect
because we really can improve how our bodies are working and dodge
the idea of the whole aging process. So many people think that all
of these health problems are normal as we age but they're really
not. You should feel great as you're accumulating the years behind
you." - Dr. Ann Shippy
A Fresh Start For Greater Health
"Just do what you can today for your health. Start with one step
because even the little ones can add up to make a huge difference.
There are lots of things you can do but if there's only one thing,
eat the fruits and vegetables that help your body to detoxify
better such as blueberries, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale,
and that entire cruciferous family. It's more than just the
calories that we get from them, they have so many powerful
nutrients and chemical messengers that communicate with our bodies
that quelch the inflammation. Just simply focusing on getting more
healthy foods in your diet and avoiding the ones that we already
know can be harmful like sugar is a good place to start." -
Dr. Ann Shippy
Building A Partnership With Our Body
"This is a partnership with your physical body. When you partner
with your body and really do listen, provide it with what it needs,
and not overwhelm it with what's causing the hurdles, that
partnership can really be extraordinary. The body has an
extraordinary capacity to heal, and it really wants to get better
and take care of you." Dr. Ann Shippy
