Why Mold Might Be The Source of Your Chronic Health Problems and What To Do About It with Brian Karr

Mold can have a serious impact on your health, and if you have it, you’re going to want to get rid of it as soon as possible. 

In this episode of The Dr. Kinney Show, I’m sharing part 2 of a mold series that I’m doing with Brian Karr all about mold and your health. We shared part 1 on his podcast and we talked about adrenal fatigue, stress, and hormones. In this episode, we discuss how mold can affect that as well as what to do if you think you have mold in your space. 

Brian Karr is a second-generation indoor environmental consultant who specializes in working with hypersensitive individuals with complex medical conditions. He helps them to understand if mold, mycotoxins, or other indoor pathogens exist in their homes that may be contributing to their health conditions, and how to remedy those issues.

Brian has become a go-to mold & biotoxin resource for many medical practitioners across the country and has helped over 5,000 hypersensitive individuals worldwide to create healthier living environments that have allowed their doctors to help them get better.

Brian is the Co-Founder of We Inspect, and an expert at identifying indicators of mold growth. Including but not limited to strategic sampling, validating, and developing remedial strategies for mold growth and biotoxin production in all areas of a home or building including walls, floors, ceilings, crawl spaces, basements, attics, and HVAC systems.


In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 


  • The core misunderstandings about mold that are giving you a false sense of security
  • The symptoms you may be feeling if you’ve had exposure to mold in your environment
  • The problem with mold air sample tests that may be affecting your results
  • The biggest misunderstanding around mold and how your body reacts to it

  • The way that mold exposure affects different individuals
