It’s very common for chronically ill patients—us included—to bounce from doctor to doctor for years without getting any concrete answers. This is because a lot of the symptoms these patients experience overlap with one another. For instance, many symptoms of mold toxicity and mycotoxins are the same as those of Celiac disease, lupus, parasite overgrowth, candida overgrowth, POTS, SIBO, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, MS, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, PCOS, Lyme disease, ALS, OCD, ADHD, PTSD, and the list goes on. 

Our Chronically Hacked Course explains how these illnesses often come as package deals and how they conspire with each other to make a set of symptoms unique to each patient. This is known as “Multiple Systemic Infectious Disease Syndrome” or MSIDS. This term was coined by Dr. Richard Horowitz, a board certified internist and the medical director of the Hudson Valley Healing Arts Center leading groundbreaking research, studies, and treatments for Lyme disease and other tick-borne disorders. MSIDS describes a system complex that creates persistent illness. 

Adding to the fact that Western medicine is trained to treat symptoms, not root causes ultimately results in a number of patients who go undiagnosed or are misdiagnosed for years. Sadly, some may even live their entire lives not being properly diagnosed. 

This is why it’s important to listen to your body. If your doctor isn’t giving you the answers you feel are right, do your own research. Go online, find chronic illness social media accounts to follow, and join some chronic illness support Facebook groups. That’s what we did. (Also take our Chronically Hacked Course as it will give you all the tools you need to figure out next steps for taking charge of your health, shameless plug.)

Take a deep breath, know that answers are out there, treatments are out there, and you can get better. 

Chronically Yours,
Micaela & Dianna
