Yes, CIRS can have a significant impact on mental health. The chronic inflammation and neurotoxic effects associated with CIRS can contribute to symptoms like brain fog, memory problems, mood disturbances, anxiety, and depression. Treating the underlying inflammation and addressing the biotoxin exposure can help alleviate these mental health symptoms.
Yes, diet can play a significant role in managing CIRS. A nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory diet that focuses on whole foods, emphasizes gut health, and minimizes potential triggers can help support the body's healing process. Working with a qualified healthcare professional or a registered dietitian who is knowledgeable about CIRS can provide guidance on an appropriate diet [...]
Step one of the CIRS treatment protocol is to get out of or clean up the moldy environment. Living in a moldy environment can exacerbate symptoms and hinder recovery for individuals with CIRS. It's important to take steps to remediate the mold and create a clean and healthy living environment. This is a critical step [...]
We follow the 12 step Shoemaker protocol as it is the only treatment that has been proven to reach a cure. We individualize the treatment by identifying and addressing the specific triggers, home remediation, detoxification, restoration of the gut, balancing hormones, and restoration of essential biomarkers.
Yes, with proper treatment and adherence, a cure for CIRS is possible in most patients. While each patient is unique, the 12 step Shoemaker protocol can take between 12-18 months to complete. The goal of treatment is to address underlying triggers, support detoxification pathways, reduce inflammation, normalize biomarkers and optimize overall health.
Yes. We can do genetic testing, check inflammatory biomarkers such as C4a, TGF-beta 1, MMP-9 and MSH. We can also perform an MRI scan for brain volume and a gene function test.
Diagnosing CIRS can be complex. It often involves a combination of a detailed medical history, symptom evaluation, visual contrast sensitivity (VCS) testing, laboratory testing (such as biomarker analysis), and potentially other specialized assessments like genetic testing or imaging studies. Working with a healthcare professional experienced in CIRS diagnosis is crucial. Here is a brief explanation of [...]
As a result of a defect in the immune system, CIRS can be triggered by exposure to biotoxins from sources like mold, Lyme disease, or other environmental factors.
Functional medicine supports the body's natural healing processes by identifying and addressing the underlying causes of disease, rather than just treating symptoms. At One Wellness, we take into account the complexity of the human body and recognize that health is not simply the absence of disease, but rather a state of optimal function and well-being. [...]
