Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker, recognized leader in the field of biotoxin and mold illness, announced his retirement from active practice in January. However he continues to remain dedicated to mold illness patients and research by implementing a certification program for doctors who wish to treat their own patients with the protocol.
Referred to as the Shoemaker Protocol, it remains a leading treatment method for mold related illness, a debilitating and often misdiagnosed condition. According to Dr. Shoemaker, “This exam will allow docs to show their competence in the basic sciences and clinical management of illnesses associated with exposure to biotoxins.”
Dr. Shoemaker points out that this is not an online study course, but rather an opportunity for doctors to receive materials, training, testing, and certification administered directly from the physician that created the protocol. The certification testing is a three step process involves a screening exam, essay questions, and an oral exam.
“We are pleased with the interest in the program. To date, over 500 physicians have become involved. The number one question submitted to the website is ‘Is there a doctor in my area that can help me?’”, reports Dr. Shoemaker. “Finally, we will be able to provide an answer.”
Ritchie Shoemaker, M.D. is an internationally recognized leader in education, patient care, and research in the field of biotoxin related illness, and has treated over 6,000 patients. Dr. Shoemaker has written numerous papers and eight books, including the widely read Mold Warriors and Surviving Mold. He has appeared on Good Morning America, the BBC, the Australian Broadcasting System, the Discovery Health Channel, and has spoken to the House of Representatives and the US Senate. He continues to give lectures and attend conferences on biotoxin illness.
