Thrival Nutrition Podcast With Mike Marshall
With Lahana Vigliano, founder and CEO of Thrival Nutrition
Molds are a natural part of our environment, and we come in contact with many on a regular basis. We eat mold; we breathe mold; we drink it. In fact, our homes and workplaces share territory with mold. Yet, when mold infiltrates those spaces, it can be a big problem for us. Mold doesn’t just grow and damage our homes and buildings; it can have an impact on our health and wellness too, with symptoms ranging from a stuffy nose, coughing, wheezing, and eye irritation to chronic illness. There is a lot of information on mold out there, but much of it is incorrect. So how do you even begin to address a mold problem?
