In this episode of Mold Talks Docs, Michael Rubino sits down with Dr. Will Cole, IFMCP, DNM, DC, leading functional-medicine expert, author, advocate, and podcast host. Dr. Will dives into the comprehensive process needed to heal individuals from toxicity, the prevalence of this health epidemic in society, and the importance of pushing back against the norm and fighting for one's health.
Dr. Will Cole is a leading functional-medicine expert who consults people around the world via webcam, having started one of the first functional medicine telehealth centers in the world. Named one of the top 50 functional and integrative doctors in the nation, Cole specializes in clinically investigating underlying factors of chronic disease and customizing a functional medicine approach for thyroid issues, autoimmune conditions, hormonal imbalances, digestive disorders, and brain problems.
He is also the host of the popular The Art of Being Well podcast and bestselling author of Ketotarian, The Inflammation Spectrum, and the New York Times bestseller Intuitive Fasting.
Dr. Will Cole, senior clinic director, is uniquely skilled and experienced at finding the root physiological, biochemical, and hormonal causes underlying many diseases. He has broken free from the limiting approach of “standard care,” which most often calls upon drugs and hormones as a first defense against these diseases without a real inspection as to the root underlying causes and contributing factors to each individual’s presenting complaints.
Dr. Cole uses breakthrough diagnostic testing and analysis that’s rarely done in conventional settings to uncover the hidden causes of why people feel the way they feel. He also takes great pride in delivering personalized healthcare treatment to patients as well as providing an environment that supports and inspires patients to reverse their poor health.
In this episode, they dive into:
1:00: Dr. Will Cole explains how he started down the path of understanding how indoor environments and exposure to toxins affect health. Over the past decade, he’s become one of the leading medical professionals in treating individuals suffering from toxic environments. He touches on his experience in this realm and the issues he’s noticed with medical professionals not diving in to find the root cause of a health problem. “It's frustrating, but to really hold space for these people that have gone through hell is a sacred responsibility for me. I can't change what they went through, but they can change their present and the future.”
4:30: Dr. Will Cole shares his consideration of how many individuals are most likely affected by exposures and why many of these individuals are prone to adverse health reactions. As he says, some people just have different sized biotoxin mugs. He further details how he and his team determine an individual’s mug size so that they can create a plan to heal them.
9:45: Dr. Will Cole discusses the importance of creating individual healing protocols and not simply lumping them into a diagnosis basket and a pre-determined plan of action. “Just because something’s common doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s normal.” As Dr. Will Cole said, that’s where functional medicine tends to shine.
15:45: Dr. Will Cole explains the importance of not just accepting symptoms and feelings as the “new norm” for their lives. They’ve got to get away from settling and push for healing and healthier living. As he said, it takes an introspective look at how they're feeling and why.
19:00: Dr. Will Cole discusses his perception of why mold has an impact on health and the role unique factors and genetics play. It’s a combination of things that come together to create a disturbance in an individual’s body balance. Dr. Will Cole discusses how healing protocols help get things back into balance so that those suffering can feel relief and his experience with clients over the years.
26:45: Dr. Will Cole discusses how sweating and removing those toxins from the body can help with healing and the importance of starting low and slow to not shock the body.
28:30: Dr. Will Cole goes through his experience with helping individuals who didn’t even realize they were suffering from toxicity and why they didn’t have as many symptoms as others in their family.
31:00: Dr. Will Cole explains the importance of taking a look at indoor environments because of the role they can play in ongoing health issues. It’s up to them to rule them out as possible underlying culprits to their issues. As he said, even hereditary exposure can trigger health issues way later on down the road. He also discusses what individuals should do if they find out that they’re dealing with toxic environments.
35:15: Dr. Will Cole discusses the cases he’s seen where individuals resolved their toxic spaces and the direct impact that had on their health. “It’s amazing to see how resilient the body is if you give it the chance to breathe.” He details the treatment protocols that he’s found are effective and what steps he takes to help his patients.
42:00: Dr. Will Cole goes through how important a healthy diet is and what that diet should actually look like. With all of the fads, tips, and tricks out there, many people may not be getting the health effects they were hoping for.
