The Mold and Crohn’s Colitis Connection

November 19, 2020, update I will be leaving this document up for now but as I’ve recently connected to a company that claims they can clean all physical belongings, including permeable items, it will change my recommendations and what could be a lot of bad information on the internet. A colleague who encountered mold in their home successfully used them.  Stay tuned for more! === (This is a dynamic document that I will be updating periodically. Normally I would keep this offline and publish when complete but this info is too important to keep from you. Please bear with grammar/spelling/organizational
