Water Damaged Buildings


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.

Well that was three years ago and so much has happened,bringing Dr Shoemaker to Australia has certainly increased the number of medical professionals who are now more aware of the need to look closely at their patients but there is still a long way to go.

Unfortunately we lost one of the driving forces in this industry last year and that was someone I would like to call a colleague Dr Jack Thrasher sadly missed and I am sure if he is watching from up there he would be cheering on the works that Dr Jimmy Ryan and Dr Shoemaker are doing with transcriptomics- Dr Scott McMahon also fits in there with work on Pandas (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder) Dr McMahon is looking at the gene expression in those individuals and I am pleased to announce Dr McMahon will be joining us along with other medical doctors here in Australia to look at whether we can change the gene expression in children on the autistic spectrum.

None of the group involved will be making money out of these investigations but we are hoping we can prize open the door just a little.
