What is it and what the certification process?

The Surviving Mold Protocol is a 12-step procedure to help guide you and your doctor in treating the complex immunological, hormonal, and neurological manifestations of mold exposure. The protocol must be tailored to each patient’s individual needs.

The Surviving Mold Certification is a 3-step examination process carried out under the personal supervision of Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker. The first step is a comprehensive written exam that tests the applicant’s understanding of many aspects of the Surviving Mold Protocol. The applicant must demonstrate an understanding of physiology, immunology, and genetics, as they apply to the mold-exposed patient. Additionally, the applicant must demonstrate understanding of how mold and other pathogenic biotoxins grow in water-damaged buildings. The written exam also covers Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses. The written exam also tests the applicant on selected historical and legal aspects of mold-related illness.

Upon successful completion of the written test, the applicant must complete the second step of the Surviving Mold Certification process. This part of the certification process requires the applicant to write two essays. The first essay is a comprehensive description of the 12-step Surviving Mold Protocol and the second essay is an interpretation of the definition of “evidenced based medicine.”

The third and final part of the test leading to certification is the oral exam. Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker presents a clinical case and the applicant must describe the diagnostic and treatment steps required to treat the patient described in the case.

In conclusion, the Surviving Mold Certification process is a rigorous, comprehensive, and challenging series of steps that the applicant must complete sequentially. Successful completion of the process ensures that the applicant has a thorough, working knowledge of the practical and theoretical steps to help patients survive mold.
