Engage in evidence-based practitioner education

Join respected Australian clinician Lisa McDonald as she explores the effects on brain and nervous system function in the CIRS/Mould Illness patient.

CIRS and mould illnesses involve multiple brain, nervous system and immune response elements.

This topic is complex, and Lisa is a highly specialised and dedicated practitioner for this and related conditions.

Join Lisa as she draws on her clinical expertise and research to share detailed insights into diagnostics and treatment options.

Learn key concepts and treatments for CIRS/Mould illnesses and the brain and nervous systems:

  • Understand what brain and nervous system symptoms are seen in the clinic with CIRS/ mould illnesses
  • Understand what might be contributing to these symptoms
  • Understand key interventions that may support your patients
  • Explore further what Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome is and why it is important to understand
  • How are the brain and nervous systems affected?
  • Which tests can be helpful to identify these conditions in these patients

A fresh perspective for clinical practice

Looking for the root cause with her patients:

Lisa’s personalised methods are designed to bridge the gap for clients with imbalances beyond the reach of diet and lifestyle alone.

A Highly Topical Presentation…

“I know only too well what it’s like to live with fatigue, brain fog, and chronic illness.
We lived in a water-damaged, mould riddled house with many members of the family suffering debilitating health issues.
It was only after research that I found Dr Richie Shoemaker’s work with mould toxicity / CIRS and decided to complete Dr Shoemaker’s Practitioner Certification program.”
