Mold Avoiders Poll Results: Covid-Like Illness Treatment Priorities

 

June 27, 2020

By Lisa Petrison, Ph.D.

This poll was conducted June 23-25, 2020, in the Mold Avoiders Facebook group.

A total of 72 individuals participated.

The question and responses follow.

There continue to be people in the Mold Avoiders group who are struggling with Covid-like illness (in most cases having first gotten sick with it some time ago but with a few new cases as well), and some of these people are quite sick.

Based on your own experiences with Covid-like illness and/or what you have heard of the experiences of others with chronic mold-related illness (especially those in this group), what treatments seem to you to be ones that these individuals should for sure be looking into and considering trying?

You may choose as many treatments as you like, but please just mark ones that you think seem really worth exploring, such as ones that you yourself would likely use if you were in that situation.

Please feel to share details of your own experiences or to elaborate on your suggestions in the comments.
