Mold tests and Doctors in Canada

Messages

Hi all,

I had this originally posted in the general section, but realized it would be better placed here.

I live a couple hours from Winnipeg in Brandon, MB. I moved into a moldy house, you know the rest. I moved out and immediately improved a lot but suddenly developed a host of immune problems, most of which are expressed neurologically.

Yeast is also a consideration. I also suspect some viral activity, maybe Lyme. Who knows.

I've been wanting to check C3a/C4a and haplotype but are unsure of how to go about it in Canada.

I have a pretty open minded doctor who even prescribed cholastyramine based on info I gave him, so I have a "normal" doc that is willing to help.

But I'd like to find a doc specializing in this stuff. Are there even any docs that follow Shoemaker in my area orin Canada in general?

Also, how do I get these tests from American labs in Canada?

Thanks a bunch guys.
