Insights about how spritizing a fern can cause mold to grow

3 Simple Steps
For Success

I wish I could go back and do it all over again with the knowledge and information I have today .... because I would have done so many things DIFFERENTLY !! 


LOOKING BACK:  I would have focused on the 3 simple steps (outlined below) and made them a huge priority in my life. I know they would have ignited a rippling effect that would have fixed my health in record time.

Insights about how you can get sicker if your environment contains toxins.

HARD LESSONS LEARNED:  My healthcare journey faced unnecessary challenges for over four decades due to an undiagnosed and easily treatable mold allergy. The key to unlocking my health mystery lay in a simple blood test for the HLA-DR gene, a crucial diagnostic tool for Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS). Unfortunately, this test was overlooked by my doctors, delaying the diagnosis and treatment that could have swiftly addressed my condition.


Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) is a progressive, multi-system, multi-symptom illness characterized by exposure to biotoxins. The ongoing inflammation can affect virtually any organ system of the body and if left untreated becomes debilitating.


RECOGNIZING MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE:  Even though mold illness is quite common, doctors are still NOT being taught about it in medical school, which I find ridiculous! In fact, during a recent setback in my health caused by mold exposure, I went to the emergency room at Tampa General Hospital, a Level 1 Trauma Center nearby. The attending physician not only refused to listen to me, but he also insulted me & dismissed me about my mold illness due to his own ignorance. 

WHEN DOCTORS DON'T LISTEN:  My Emergency Room Doctor admitted to me that he had never heard of CIRS Disease and knew nothing of mold illness at all. He went so far as to even question its legitimacy and told me he "Googled it" and found out it was made up by a bunch of chiropractors. Pffffttt. 


His dismissive attitude, rooted in a lack of knowledge, was not just disheartening, but also alarming. It shed light on the broader issue of medical malpractice and negligence. In situations where healthcare professionals fail to acknowledge or understand certain conditions, patients are not only deprived of safe and effective care, but are also potentially exposed to harm, or worse.


DEMANDING RESPECT: I told him I was a Board-Certified Patient Advocate and CellCore Practitioner and that I had spent 40 years struggling to fix my health and figure this out. To which he said, "Then why are you here?" I asked him where else would one go who was having chest pains and difficulty breathing than to the one place that did the open heart surgery that saved my life? I asked him if I should have gone to a walk-in clinic instead, but he didn't answer me. He simply pivoted and walked away. 


Faced with this realization, I understood that I couldn't rely on this doctor for the help I needed. With a heavy heart and a sense of urgency, I left the hospital to seek more informed and empathetic medical care elsewhere. This experience highlighted the vital importance of Patient Advocacy and the need for a more inclusive and informed Healthcare System that recognizes and addresses a broader spectrum of medical conditions.

There is something 
SO WRONG 
When you know MORE
than Your Doctors does.

DRAWING BOUNDARIES:  I made the firm decision that day to NEVER take any of my Medical Advocacy Patients to Tampa General Hospital for emergency room care - ever again. Such a pity. I also reaffirmed my commitment to ask every doctor I see, "What do you know about CIRS Disease?" If they're unaware, I'll try to educate them. But mostly, I just seek help elsewhere. If your doctor doesn't listen to you, or learn about your condition, it's crucial to get help elsewhere. Find someone who understands. Your life is too precious to risk.



JAW

DROPPING !!

Questions, Questions,
Questions !!

A TON OF QUESTIONS:  After getting diagnosed with mold illness, I faced a multitude of unanswered questions and had to search for solutions on my own. It was a very challenging journey, and I often wished I had guidance and support.


FIGURING IT ALL OUT: I wondered about testing my home and my office, and whether or not to hire a professional or try and do it myself. I was curious about the best testing methods to use, and what steps needed to be taken for proper mold elimination. I also was filled with questions about what to keep, or throw, or how to know which items needed to be replaced. Plus, I need to know how to best detoxify my body. All of these questions weighed on my mind. 

BEING PATIENT & PERSISTENT:  Addressing my health issues proved to be a far more arduous journey than I had initially anticipated. The path was riddled with an overwhelming amount of conflicting information and numerous missteps, which not only prolonged the process but also added significantly to the cost and complexity of finding a solution.


However, through this challenging journey, I managed to distill my experiences into three simple, yet profoundly effective steps. These steps became the cornerstone of my success, providing a clear and straightforward framework for regaining control over my health and, by extension, my life. They are a testament to the power of patience and persistence in the face of adversity and confusion, and a reminder that sometimes, the most complex problems have surprisingly simple solutions.


Hopefully YOU Can Learn

From My Mistakes !!



3 SIMPLE STEPS
FOR YOUR SUCCESS

STEP 1:
Get OUT
of the Toxins Fast !!

You've Got To Stop Being Exposed To The "Toxins & Chemicals"
If You Ever Want To Fix Your Health.

INVISIBLE HEALTH HAZARDS: Mold, toxins & chemicals are silent killers. Most often, you will NOT be able to see them, smell them, or even touch them. They'll be hidden in your food, water & air supply, and will silently be making you sick. So, you've got to find them and fix them ... as soon as you can. Because the longer you're exposed to them, the sicker you'll become. Also, it doesn't matter if you have an allergy to the toxins & chemicals (or not), because everyone, everywhere is susceptible and will have all kinds of symptoms from them.

It's simple. In concept.
Yet NOT So Easy !!


STEP 2:
Get The Toxins 
Out of YOU !!

You've got to completely "detoxify" your body
if you want to get the toxins out out of you.




NOBODY IS IMMUNE - NOT EVEN YOU - EVER
:
 Nobody is immune from toxins & chemicals ... NOBODY. Nowhere. I don't care who you are, where you live, what your age, or physical condition, nor how rich (or poor) you are. Sickness doesn't discriminate. It comes to everyone, everywhere, especially when they build up enough toxins in their body and they can't fight it off any longer.


It's only a matter of time.


GUARD YOUR HEALTH:  Simple everyday items can become harmful to your health. They leach into your body and cause terrible symptoms and debilitating disease. So, take the steps necessary to reduce your overall exposure and learn how to detoxify your body properly. Your health is at stake. Please don't take that lightly!  Because a healthy person has a thousand wishes, but a sick person has just 1. So, put your health first. It matters.

The average person is exposed to
700,000 toxic chemicals
EVERY SINGLE DAY !!

Think about that.



STEP 3:
Keep Your Home & Workspace 
Forever Safe !!

You've got to be "proactive" about your health and learn to live a 

preventative lifestyle in order to minimize the toxins you're being exposed to.

LEARN "HOW TO" BECOME TOXIN FREE: There's so much to learn about, (and to know), when it comes to getting YOU out of the toxins & the toxins OUT of you. And so much to figure out to keep your space forever safe. It can feel overwhelming at times just trying to figure this all out. So much so that it's easy to ge"analysis paralysis." And feel like as much as you know, and as far as you've come, there's so much farther to go. I still feel that way today. But regardless of the path you take, you need to continue chipping away at it and figure out how to keep your home and your workspace safe.


FIND SIMPLE SOLUTIONS FOR COMPLEX PROBLEMS: My Educational Coaching & Training Programs and Guided Detoxification Programs can help. You'll have all the tools & resources you need to get you on the right track. Say goodbye to the overwhelming task of figuring everything out on your own, because A Better Life - Health & Wellness will be right there by your side, providing you with the expert guidance and support you need every-step-of-the-way.


GETTING HEALTHY - MADE EASY: Don't wait another day to transform your health and reclaim your life. Let us help you embark on your wellness journey and unlock the secrets to living a full, healthy, vibrant, and toxin-free life.

Remember, an Ounce of Prevention
is worth a pound
of CURE !!

Getting healthy
and staying healthy
is easy as 1,2,3

  • Get you OUT of the toxins & chemicals.
  • Get the toxins & chemicals out of YOU.
  • Keep your space forever SAFE.

... IT'S THAT EASY !



My Mold
REMEDIATION
Journey



REMEDIATION #1

THE 1ST REMEDIATION:  My first mold remediation project was relatively easy compared to all the others. That's because I could actually visibly see the mold on the backside of the dresser, which resulted from a dark & damp environment. My daily ritual of spritzing my fern and keeping the blinds drawn for shade in my bedroom had inadvertently created an ideal setting for mold growth. 


While recovering from my first knee operation, I got really sick while lying in the bedroom, prompting me to search for a cause. I found it quite by accident just by pulling the dresser away from the wall. Taking swift action, I removed the dresser, replaced the mold-laden carpet, bought a new bed, and repainted the room with mold-resistant products. These straightforward steps not only cleared the mold from the room but also marked a significant turning point in my health, highlighting the profound impact that our immediate surroundings have on our well-being.




REMEDIATION #2

THE 2ND REMEDIATION: My 2nd mold remediation project was NOT that easy to figure out. That's because the mold was on the inside of the concrete block walls of my son's bedroom. It wasn't until we finally got the Environmental Protection Agency & Health Department out that we finally figured it out. Once again, we figured it out, quite by accident.


The original builder of our home buried garbage (scraps of wallboard, wood, insulation, etc.) up against the house when it was first built. The garbage never decomposed. Decades later, we installed a beautiful planter box with amazing new shrubs and flowers and automatic sprinklers that watered it regularly. The water seeped into the walls and created the mold that we could not see that got my son and I very sick. 



REMEDIATION #3

THE 3RD REMEDIATION: My 3rd mold remediation product (and the only that was NOT successful) was the one that I had in my office. I had a 5-room office suite in a professional office complex. It had a big drainage ditch around it that was always filled with water ... even on a bright and sunny day. The water seeped into the floors of the building and eventually into the walls and the Air Conditioning System, creating the mold that nearly killed me. It also made several other people in the complex very sick.

That's When I Learned the
TOUGH LESSON OF ...
CAN'T vs. WON'T

I MADE A BIG MISTAKE: I convinced myself that I could not leave the building ... because, "I was way too busy. Had too much to do. Too many people relying on me. Too many bills to pay." Blah. Blah. Blah.  Then, I nearly died and learned a harsh lesson. What good would I be to anyone else if I was dead? NONE! I put my life in jeopardy because I didn't have my priorities straight.


Rather than telling myself "I can't get out" ... I was really telling myself, "I WON'T get out". Can't vs. won't ... reemmber that! There's a fine line there and an important lesson learned. Learn it.

WHAT I SHOULD HAVE
SAID TO MYSELF WAS:

Get OUT ...
Or you're gonna DIE !!

GETTING LAST RITES - TWICE:  My attitude quickly changed when I had a priest standing over me giving me last rites and I saw the look of horror on my son's and my husband's face as they came into the ER room to say goodbye. It was such a surreal experience and it happened so fast. Everyone was giving up on me.


Thankfully, I refused to die and did not give up on myself. I fought and advocated for myself, barking orders and not taking no for an answer. Before I knew it, I was hooked up to a heart bypass machine and being critical care transferred to a Level 1 Trauma Center for open heart surgery. 

HAUNTED BY MY DECISIONS:  I should have died; I can't erase that memory or turn back the hands of time. It traumatized me and left me with PTSD. To this day, the sound of an ambulance triggers vivid flashbacks - the chaos & urgency of the day, the sights and sounds and smell, the memories of the chaotic ambulance ride, the frantic ER experience, my family's fear, and the intense procedure to unblock the blood clot in my heart.


Then, the anxious wait for critical care transport to the second hospital, followed by the open heart surgery, a day and a half of unconsciousness, and ten more days in critical care.


MOVE FORWARD WITH PURPOSE & INTENTION:  No matter the effort, or the cost, take action now! Stop the exposure that's making you sick if you want to avoid permanent illness, injury, or even death.

Remember, every decision you make (or don't make) comes with consequences, and hesitating - or cutting corners - in seeking proper care for your health can lead to devastating outcomes. Your well-being is invaluable, remember that. Ignoring it comes at an immeasurable cost. Don't gamble with your life; it's not worth the risk.



REMEDIATION #4

THE 4TH REMEDIATION:  My fourth mold remediation was prompted by multiple kitchen leaks that started with a dishwasher leak, and then a pipe leak under the kitchen sink that caused the mold to grow beneath the cabinets. In both cases, we cleaned up the water quickly, but unfortunately, my mold symptoms returned unexpectedly, leading me back to the Emergency Room due to difficulties breathing.


This remediation project was the most expensive, by far, totaling over $25,000 in costs, even though we did most of the work ourselves. The frustrating part was that after three months of detoxifying my body with CellCore Biosciences, I saw no improvement, despite having had significant improvement at that point before. So I KNEW there was more mold somewhere else in the house. This led us to investigate further mold issues.



REMEDIATION #5

THE 5TH REMEDIATION: The 5th mold remediation project revealed mold behind the tile walls of my bathroom and beneath the tub, necessitating a complete overhaul. People often questioned why I hadn't considered moving, but the dilemma was more complex than it seemed. Living in Florida, especially by the water, I was acutely aware that mold is a big issue, with over 70% of buildings harboring it to some extent. Staying in my home, despite its challenges, meant that I was familiar with what had been done already and what might still needed attention. This knowledge, though daunting, gave me a unique advantage in managing and understanding the scope of mold remediation in my own space. Plus, I had remediated and gotten myself 100% well using CellCore Biosciences, so I felt more comfortable taking on the process.


When dealing with mold remediation, you must weigh the pros and cons and find your own path forward. I was fortunate enough to have a handy husband and supportive friends who put their lives on hold to help us, making the decision to stay an easier one. I'm glad I did stay, but I really wish that I had known about these mold issues sooner and that I had a more reliable mold inspector, as we lost valuable time, money, and energy on unreliable and inaccurate air samples.



REMEDIATION #6

THE 6TH REMEDIATION:  Our 6th and most recent mold remediation journey was in our 2nd bathroom. What was so different about this experience was that the mold was NOT just between the tile and the wallboard (as we had in the first bathroom renovation), but it was also behind the wallboard itself. And what was most baffling was the fact that we hadn't used that shower in several months, yet the area behind the wall remained dripping wet. Wet enough that my husband could put his hand on the wall and it would show the moisture instantly.


What was also interesting was the fact that I recovered quickly after remediating our 1st bathroom (the bathroom I use regulatrly), but my son did not. He uses the 2nd bathroom and remained sick. This led to a critical realization about the significance of proximity to the mold and its influence upon our health.


From this, I learned that every mold situation is unique, and every remediation project different. It uncovers new lessons to be learned about the stealthy nature of mold itself and its effects on our overall well-being.



Valuable

Lessons Learned

Navigating Your Health

in An Unsafe Space

LIVING OR WORKING IN AN UNSAFE SPACE:   Your living and working environment significantly impacts your health. Contamination with mold, toxins, and/or chemicals hinders your healing process. How can you expect to recover when constantly exposed to the very thing that's making you sick? You can't.


Addressing the "root cause" head-on is crucial. If you or your loved ones have health issues, then start by examining your home and work environment. Get your body tested. If it's in your body, it's in your space. Period. Identify and rule out potential contributors to your symptoms and work to find the "root cause" of your health problems.

It's Hard to Heal Your Body
WHEN YOU'RE
LIVING & WORKING

Inside of What's Causing the Problem !!

HIRE YOURSELF AN EXPERT:  Have your home and workplace inspected by a reputable professional specializing in mold and environmental toxins. Don't cheap out. Get the best. Ensure they conduct comprehensive testing for all potential issues. And not just mold. Avoid relying on inexpensive hardware store kits, or air samples alone, which lack reliability. (Take it from me ... mine said that my space was safe. It was wrong!)


GET COMPREHESIVE TESTING:  Invest wisely in a qualified environmental inspector like a Building Biologist, or Indoor Environmental Professional. They can thoroughly inspect and test every aspect of your space, including mold, EMF's, radon, radiation, and more.

It's essential to get this right ...
from the very start.
SO, DO NOT CUT CORNERS.

NOT HERE.

NOT EVER !

Spend the money and
get it done RIGHT.

Remember,
Cheap IS Expensive !!


Incredible Insights

That I've Gained From Others

DON'T PUT IT OFF:  I cannot tell you HOW MANY TIMES I've had clients who have been sick for a LONG time, who come to me for help & support, but who, despite my advice, neglect to get their homes properly tested and remediated for both mold and/or environmental toxins.


It happens ALL THE TIME !!


They won't spend $500, $1,000, $2,000, or more, to make sure their home is 100% safe. Yet they'll spend tens of thousands of dollars on hospitalizations, medical treatments, rehabilitations & recoveries from the medical issues caused by the toxins & chemicals that are in their body and their work or home.


Or, they'll think nothing of spending $500, $1,000, $2,000 or more on holiday shopping, new cell phones, televisions, computers, or family vacations. This glaring disparity not only highlights misplaced priorities but also underscores the critical need for a proactive approach to health, where ensuring a safe living environment isn't just an option, but a necessity.

DON'T RISK YOUR HEALTH:  Don't end up wasting thousands trying to detoxify your body without eliminating the source of the problem. Take my advice: figure out what's in your home, your workspace, and your body, and work to remove the root cause of the issues. Facing these challenges directly is essential. Awareness and action are key steps toward achieving lasting health and well-being.


DON'T MAKE EXCUSES:  Don't let obstacles like financial constraints, time limitations, or uncertainty about finding qualified professionals deter you from taking action. Dismissing the need for professional inspection and remediation can lead to greater risks and costs in the long run. Understand that the health implications are too significant to be ignored and that finding solutions, even in small steps, is better than inaction.


DON'T MISS THE HIDDEN DANGERS:  And don't assume that a newer (or clean-looking house) is automatically a safe space. Hidden dangers like mold and environmental toxins can lurk unseen, regardless of a home's age or appearance. It's crucial to go beyond surface cleanliness and consider comprehensive testing and inspection. These steps are vital in uncovering potential risks, and ensuring your living environment supports, rather than hinders, your health.

DON'T ACCEPT BEING DISMISSED:  It's deeply disheartening when individuals' legitimate concerns about their health are casually dismissed or ridiculed by spouses, labeled as "overreacting" or "crazy," while they exhaust time, money, and energy on solutions that don't address the root cause of the problem. I hear this all the time and it's so frustrating to witness. Standing firm in the face of skepticism and advocating for your health is not only necessary; it's a right that should be respected and supported.


DON'T RISK BEING HOSPITALIZED:  Regrettably, neglecting these environmental risks often leads to emergency room visits or worsening health complications due to prolonged toxin exposure, trapping individuals in a harmful cycle. The physical, emotional, and financial burdens of this neglect can be overwhelming, with medical costs often far exceeding what a proper home inspection would have cost. Heartbreakingly, in some cases, this delay in action has even resulted in loss of life. This harsh reality underscores the urgent need for timely awareness and intervention.


All it takes is a mindset shift

to turn the impossible into the possible!

The word "Impossible" with the letters "IM" crossed out, transforming it into "Possible".

Get healthy.

Be happy.

YOU'RE WORTH EVERY PENNY:  Ensuring your safety and well-being is worth every penny you pay. Because, when all is said and done, you can't take your money with you when you're gone. It will be no use to you if you're dead. Wealth means nothing if your health is compromised. So, fight for your better health and to live ... A Better Life.


You deserve to wake up every day feeling happy, healthy, and carefree. You deserve to live your days in peace & harmony. So fight the good fight and work hard to be the best you that you can possibly be. It will be well worth your time, money & effort.
