EPISODE 551: Lauren Tessier, ND – Life After Mold and International Society for Environmentally Acquired Illness (ISEAI)

Dr. Lauren Tessier, is a Naturopathic Physician licensed by the state of Vermont. Her practice, Life After Mold, uses a patient centered approach to help those suffering from mold related illness. Her approach is informed by my Naturopathic Medical education, in combination with Functional and Integrative Medicine. These tools allow her to truly address the entire person who establishes care with her. Dr. Tessier’s passion for treating those with mold related illnesses started when she moved to Waterbury, Vermont in 2013. She wanted to serve a small community in rural Vermont, however, nothing could have prepared her for what she was about to see. Waterbury, two years later, was still recovering from an unimaginable flood caused by Hurricane Irene in 2011. Patients sick with unexplainable rashes, allergies non-responsive to treatment, fatigue, breathing difficulties, neurological complaints, headaches, nausea, and general immune system dysfunction came to be seen, day after day. When the traditional western medicine and Naturopathic approaches didn’t seem to work, that was when she decided to “dive deep” into what she suspected to be mold related illness.
