Are you grappling with brain fog, eczema, anxiety, depression, or insomnia, but the cause of your ailments defies doctors' explanations? 

Sounds like you could have a toxic mold problem on your hands. 

Embark on a captivating exploration of indoor environmental health with today's guest, Brian Karr, who has empowered over 3,000 hypersensitive individuals to cultivate healthier living environments.

A Certified Microbial Investigator (CMI) by the American Council for Accredited Certifications, Brian is an expert at identifying mold indicators and developing strategic remedial strategies for mold growth and biotoxin production throughout homes and buildings. He is also the co-founder of We Inspect, a national indoor environmental assessment company with a laser focus on mold and biotoxin detection and management. Additionally, Brian created the Mold Masterclass, an innovative digital training program designed to teach students how to identify and eradicate mold and mycotoxins from their homes.

Notably, Brian was also a distinguished speaker at the 2020 Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) Annual Meeting, where he conveyed a specialized approach to mold and biotoxin remediation for hypersensitive individuals. His contributions also extend to educational articles published by the Indoor Air Quality Association.

Recently, I had the privilege of joining him on an episode of his podcast #moldfinders: RADIO (which he was gracious enough to let me share with you today) to discuss concerns related to chronic inflammation, mitochondrial disruption, and how biohacking can offer solutions for core body issues.

In today's episode, join me and Brian in unraveling the complexities of indoor environmental health, exploring how mold and biotoxins might be affecting your well-being. From detection to remediation, this conversation is a journey into creating healthier living spaces and, ultimately, a healthier you.
