In this video, Dr. Jill interviews Dr. Fox about the functional medicine approach to biotoxin illness. Biotoxins are toxins that come from a biological origin. Many chronic conditions like chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, insomnia, neurologic conditions, anxiety and headaches have roots in biotoxin illness. Common biotoxin illnesses include Lyme Disease, Lyme associated co-infections and mold illness as each of these contagions release biotoxins that can make people symptomatic.
Functional medicine looks for the underlying root cause instead of just treating the symptoms. Dr. Fox explores how functional medicine can be applied to mold toxicity and Lyme disease. Watch this video to learn more about Dr. Fox’s personal journey, a look at testing and treatment approaches for mold toxicity and the relationship between Lyme and mold.
