Clarity and Hope for CIRS/Mold Illness

Meet Your Instructor

Dr. Sandeep Gupta

Hi, I’m Dr. Sandeep Gupta, MD.

I first became interested in mold illness when I was exposed to a water-damaged building after the 2011 Brisbane, Australia, floods and developed a variety of unexplained symptoms. I wanted to understand the root cause of mold illness, found the research of Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker and became Surviving Mold certified in 2014. I launched the first version of this online course Mold Illness Made Simple in October 2016, give patients and practitioners an overview on this complex topic. Mold Illness Made Simple 2 expands about version 1 considerably.
