Mold and mycotoxins are at the root of many chronic illnesses and immune dysfunction — plus, too many people suffer with mystery illnesses for years, only to be told, “just take these meds.” Learn to identify, treat and recover from mold exposure.

Meet Your Host

Margaret ChristensenMD, FACOG, IFMCP, ABOIM

 

An Institute for Functional Medicine faculty member for 12 years, Dr. Christensen first became interested in functional medicine 15 years ago when trying to solve the riddle of her and her family’s complex health challenges -- unbeknownst to her at the time were consequences of severe toxic mold exposure. She became intimately familiar with chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, autoimmunity, and the hormonal, neurological and psychiatric consequences of unrecognized biotoxin illness. A board-certified OB-GYN for 23 years, her initial boutique functional medicine practice has grown into The Carpathia Collaborative, a large, multidisciplinary functional medicine practice based in Dallas covering the full spectrum of complex chronic disease. The practice provides 360 degree functional, lifestyle and nutritional medicine, and includes an onsite teaching kitchen, yoga studio and education library that also serves as the site for community-learning events. Dr. Christensen is passionate about educating her clients and colleagues about root cause, whole-systems medicine!
