PLACES TO STAY | HOTELS | RESORTS

It is very important that our patients stay in a hotel that has the least mold issues. Many Florida hotels harbor hidden mold. Most hotels turn the air off when rooms are empty allowing mold to grow in high humidity states like Florida. We cannot assure that the hotels listed below are mold free, however,our patients with the mold toxin genetics have not suffered mold toxicity symptoms in these hotels. DNA testing has proven that 85 percent of our patients have the HLA DRBQ mold genetics, therefore they cannot remove mold toxins like other people. Dr. Sponaugle’s research has proven that Mold Toxicity is a primary cause of addiction, depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, see our Mold toxicity page for more information.

When patients unknowingly stay in mold toxic hotels or beach condos, they breathe in more mold toxins on a daily basis than our treatment can remove. Some families unknowingly sabotage their treatment, wasting thousands of dollars, because they stay in hotels or condos with hidden mold. Remember, you cannot smell or see mold toxins, the gases produced by most molds. Mold infestations are usually hidden above the ceiling or behind shower tile.
