Join us in this Live Class where Dr. Mark Filidei, DO provides an in-depth presentation on Mold Illness: Application of MycoTOX in Clinical Practice.Dr. Filidei will cover each of the markers of the mycotoxin test and will expand on the correlation between gut health, colonization of mold in the body, oxidative stress and more.
Dr Filidei will also introduce the importance of testing for mycotoxins using liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) technology as this state-of-the-art method allows Great Plains to detect mycotoxins even in small quantities analyzing parts per trillion.
Mycotoxins and mold are linked to multiple conditions going from Parkinson’s, MS, Alzheimers, Lyme and other chronic conditions. Treating mold and testing for mycotoxins is an essential tool for any practitioner wishing to practice functional medicine as this test will provide a detailed and personalized assessment of mold in a patient’s body and would identify the source of contamination and, in conjunction with the Organic Acid Test, it can confirm or rule out the existence of colonization of mold in the body.
We are currently measuring 11 different mycotoxins in our test from a wide variety of 13 mold types (genera) including Aspergillus, Penicillium, Fusarium, Myrothecium, Stachybotrys, Bipolaris, Gibberella, Chaetomium, Trichoderma, Trichothecium, Cephalosporium, Verticimonosporium, and Monascus. Since each of these genera contains multiple species, the MycoTOX Profile is likely to detect hundreds of mold species. In addition, poisonous mushrooms also produce some of the same mycotoxins as the molds. This makes the MycoTOX Profile the most comprehensive test on the market, and it is the most cost-effective.
