The Shoemaker protocol is designed by Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker to treat patients with Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) from Water Damaged Buildings. In this condition, patients will develop multiple symptoms and affect multiple body systems that emanate from inflammation in the body and brain.
The Shoemaker Protocol is very thorough, including:
- Guidance for removing patients from exposure
- Accurate diagnosis
- A step-wise approach to reducing inflammation, removing toxins and building enduring resilience
The treatment has been published in multiple medical journals. It is most effective treating conditions such as chronic inflammatory syndrome (CIRS) and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS)
According to this study, Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) is a “chronic biotoxin illness that affects as many as one in four people in the United States.” Physician-researcher Ritchie Shoemaker began a series of studies starting in 1998. He eventually developed a thorough description of an illness caused by “poor clearance of biotoxins produced by certain algae, dinoflagellates, and molds.” Shoemaker named it the Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome and developed methods to diagnose and treat it.
Now, let’s start with Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) basics. This type of illness is described as a multi-symptom illness due to exposure to biotoxins. If left untreated, CIRS may become debilitating, and this is due to the ongoing inflammation, which may affect virtually any organ in the body. The main problem with CIRS is that most patients get misdiagnosed.
To those who are not familiar with the illness, CIRS may look like allergies, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and chronic fatigue syndrome, among others. Once patients start receiving treatments for one of the conditions mentioned above, the conditions don’t improve. This is why it’s essential to get the proper treatment as soon as possible.
We use the Shoemaker Protocol to help treat patients like you with chronic inflammatory syndrome (CIRS) and chronic fatigue syndrome, and are located in Hollywood, Florida, convenient also to Miami and Fort Lauderdale.
