Dr Richie Shoemaker


We welcome Dr Ritchie Shoemaker M.D. to Australia to present on his research findings, diagnosis, treatment and study into Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) illness as a result of exposure to water damage buildings (WDB).

Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th March 2015 Medical Seminar
Sydney Australia
Saturday 7th of March 2015 Public Seminar
QUT Brisbane Australia

“Ever wondered why some patients just don’t get better despite the best of care-Could this seminar open up a new way of looking at these cases?”

World renowned Dr Ritchie Shoemaker M.D., is a recognised leader in patient care, research and education pioneer in the field of biotoxin related illness. While illness acquired following exposure to the interior environment of water-damaged buildings (WDB) comprises the bulk of Shoemaker’s daily practice, other illnesses caused by exposure to biologically produced toxins are quite similar in their “final common pathway.” The inflammatory illness from each of these diverse sources is known as a Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome.

Dr Shoemaker will cover the diagnosis and treatment of what he has termed chronic inflammatory response syndrome (CIRS) – in particular, CIRS acquired following exposure to the interior environment of a water damaged building. This will also include information on genetic pre-disposal to develop CIRS.

WHAT IS CIRS? – CIRS-WDB involves a systemic inflammatory response that results when an individual does not have the immune response genes to eliminate neurotoxins produced by their exposure to a WDB. CIRS affects multiple systems in the body, causing patients to exhibit multiple symptoms.

SYMPTOMS OF CIRS – Symptoms can include fatigue, weakness, aches, muscle cramps, unusual pain, ice pick pain, headache, light sensitivity, red eyes, blurred vision, tearing, sinus problems, cough, shortness of breath, abdominal pain, diarrhea, joint pain, morning stiffness, memory issues, focus/concentration issues, word recollection issues, decreased learning of new knowledge, confusion, disorientation, skin sensitivity, mood swings, appetite swings, sweats (especially night sweats), temperature regulation or dysregulation problems, excessive thirst, increased urination, static shocks, numbness, tingling, vertigo, metallic taste, tremors, multiple chemical sensitivities.

Depending upon their symptoms, patients may be diagnosed with other illnesses, including multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and depression; however, there are tests that can be used to establish if CIRS is the underlying cause of their symptoms.

We invite you all to come and join Dr Shoemaker for the weekend while he opens the pathway to an illness common amongst patients. Dr Shoemaker is also presenting a conference for patients and public in Brisbane on Saturday 7th December. Please find a flyer for this here.
