What is Mold Illness Made Simple?
Mold Illness Made Simple is an online course (eCourse) which will teach you the basics of Mold Illness/Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS), created by certified Shoemaker CIRS physician Dr. Sandeep Gupta. It will give you clarity and confidence in understanding and conquering CIRS from both a physical, i.e. how CIRS affects the body, and environmental i.e. how are water-damaged buildings tested and remediated, viewpoint.
Is there any science behind Mold Illness/CIRS?
Yes and it’s growing everyday. Visit the CIRS science page for the latest research.
Who is the course for?
Patients and carers: For patients who suspect they may suffer from CIRS it will provide you with the tools to be screened appropriately for CIRS and the tests/health professionals required for a full CIRS diagnosis and treatment. For patients already with a CIRS diagnosis the course is an excellent resource to assimilate the steps of the Shoemaker protocol and the basics of building testing and remediation.
For health practitioners this course is the best and fastest way to learn about CIRS and the Shoemaker protocol from a health, and environmental, perspective to enable you to screen, diagnose and treat your patients more effectively. Completing this course will give you a significant advantage if you decide to undertake full Shoemaker certification.
For Indoor Environmental Professionals (IEP) and mold remediators it will give you the understanding of the health side of CIRS/mold illness and enable you to recommend appropriate medical care for clients.
What does the course consist of?
The course consists of eight weeks (modules) of content consisting of 2-3 chapters (units) per week for a total of 18 chapters. Each chapter has a 15-45 minute video with a lecture by Dr. Gupta over PowerPoint slides. There is a high quality workbook in PDF format to accompany each chapter and the lecture slides. Each week there is a 8-10 question quiz which is required to be passed (50% of higher grade) before moving onto the next week to enhance the retention of what you have learned. Each week will also have optional reading/viewing links if you wish to further your understanding.
