Peg is a certified clinician in the Shoemaker Protocol for Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS).

CIRS is triggered by many different biotoxins, water damaged building being the most common, but also tick borne diseases, metals accumulations and even viruses. In turn, CIRS can trigger downstream illnesses such as Leaky Gut Syndrome, Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, SIBO and Dementia just to name a few.
