Co-Exposure: A simultaneous exposure to multiple pathogens
Rarely, a patient visits our facility and has only one environmental insult to their body. Mold, yeast, mycotoxins, endotoxins, or environmental bacteria in any combination equate to a co-exposures. The medical treatment of environmental exposures to mold / fungi, or other pathogens in a contaminated environment are a complex medical science.
Many patients may have combinations (mold co-exposures) of fungal and yeast colonizing within their bodies, along with multiple types of mycotoxins. The presence of bacteria, mycobacterium and endotoxins is also of great concern as there are many types of environmental bacteria that are synergistic with fungal growth in indoor water damaged structures and are disease causing pathogens as well.
When a patient exhibits multiple symptoms the likelihood of a co-exposure is almost 100%.
NTCED understands that the majority of Primary Care Physicians have difficulty dealing with mold exposure, let alone complex co-exposures involving multiple types of pathogens. NTCED specializes in this type of medical testing and complex medical treatments.
