Can Mold Cause Epstein Barr

When I started this Eat Pray Get Well website eight years ago, nobody was really talking about mold and fungus.  To be honest, I would often wish that I had a less “gross” topic to talk about.  Years in I am thrilled to educate people on how catastrophic mold can be to one’s health.  I […]

Breakfast With My Teen (Can you Relate?)

I may only have about three minutes with my teenager in the morning, but our interactions are meaningful.  Many of you with teens will relate, I’m sure!
