Is mold on your health radar? Dr. Jill wants to make sure it is.
Dr. Jill Crista is a naturopathic doctor and one of the leading experts in the treatment of mold-related illness - not only from her 20 years working with patients, but because toxic mold sprouted in her own home.
Her personal experience with mold inspired her to write a book to help others in the same situation. Her book, Break The Mold, clearly and simply outlines the functional medicine tools that everyday people can use to conquer mold.
Dr. Jill is on a mission to expand access to Mold-Literate practitioners. She developed a continuing education course for medical practitioners wanting to gain mastery in the diagnosis and treatment of mold - and has now certified over 500 doctors.
Anyone looking for a Mold-Literate doctor can check out the Find A Doc page on her website. If you don’t find someone close, consider joining the “Mold Canary” community - a membership where you can pick Dr. Jill’s brain a few times per month at the Q&A sessions, get helpful resources, and be supported by others going through the same thing.
Her motto? Break the mold, take back your health.
