I have been living in a water-damaged building with an ERMI of 8. Fortunately, my VCS, which had been positive in the past, have now converted to negative. Unfortunately, I still have evidence of peripheral neuropathy. Is it possible to pass the VCS test and have neurologic problems?
Yes. Use of cholestyramine or Welchol will help remove the source of the inflammatory burden but not the entire inflammatory burden. The reason there is a 12 step protocol for treatment (see the VIP paper published in March 2013 found in “Resources” on this site) is that we have been able to show over the years that persistent abnormalities in inflammation often require a series of sequential interventions to bring resolution to multi-faceted symptoms. Documenting what’s wrong with you with lab tests is essential as those test results guide treatment interventions.
