    Dr. Nagy is an energetic speaker and was taught in medical school to believe the patient. Isn't that novel concept for those of us who have had to deal with doctors who don't believe us?

    She covers a lot of territory: lyme, cfs, autism, mold, bacteria, viruses, chemical /food sensitivities, and more. One of the interesting things she mentioned was the difference in the way men and women respond to mold exposure.

    Dr. Nagy was debilitated by mold, so she has a great appreciation and dedication to helping patients, teaching doctors, and has become an outspoken advocate. It took her many years to recover and she is now able to work again. She may be a good doctor for those living near her office in Martha's Vineyard.

    I hope you enjoy her and her lecture as much as I did. She's quite the lady and I'm glad she's on our side. All feedback is welcomed. http://present.knowledgevision.com/account/kv-pr/subaccount/vpm/link/Nagy_Penn_Feb2012

    My Dr "contracted" Parkinson's via Mold Exposure. He is in the Boston area.

    Hi GG,

    Wow! The more I learn about the problems caused by mold exposure, the more it seems to lead to so many serious medical situations. He sounds like he would be a very astute and caring doctor for you? Are you taking the Ampligen?

    Regards,
    Susan

    Yes, I think he is very good, he does all kinds of "alternative" modalities that most Drs wouldn't bother with. IVs, acupuncture, has a hyperbaric chamber, allergy testing...

    He will spend as much time with you as you demand, so don't expect your appt to start on time, can be an hour or so. Although they will bring you to a room, so you can rest.

    PS No I am not on Ampligen, cannot afford that! Perhaps if it gets FDA approved my insurance will cover it, but that's a ways off! I am doing ok, so I would not want to risk my health, I would wait for years until I know how people do long term. Sounds good, but it would seem there are some cons? So obviously I am not that desperately ill!

    Hi GG,

    He sounds like a wonderful doctor. I'm thankful you are receiving such good care and don't need to consider Ampligen treatment. I know very little about the medications the patient community here is taking. I started reading this forum because there are so many similarities in symptoms and needed supplements with what I've been diagnosed with: Lyme and mold illness.I believe I would easily be diagnosed with CFS or ME if I saw a specialist for those conditions.

    Long story short: I'm at a crossroads in deciding how to proceed. Right now, my primary need is a safe home where I can get away from molds and chemicals so I can start moving forward into some kind of affordable treatments. Finding a safe place to live is looking like mission impossible in the metro where I live. Until then, I'm treading water, so to speak.

    Warm regards,
    Susan

    What she said about researchers prioritizing protecting their reputations over correcting science, that really struck a chord with me, it's so true.
