Shoemaker Certified Proficiency Partner
(CIRS and Mold Toxicity)

Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) as a result of exposure to mold and water damaged homes or buildings is a devastating illness that can destroy lives.  

Every year millions of people experiencing brain fog, severe fatigue, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and more, see countless doctors only to be given labels including chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, or worse, being told everything is normal or “it’s all in your head.”  

Severe inflammatory condition

CIRS is a severe inflammatory condition that occurs when genetic susceptibility along with prolonged exposure results in a body overburdened by toxins that it cannot process.  On the outside, a person may look perfectly healthy, while on the inside, an inflammatory storm is raging.

How Dr. Yakel got started in working with cirs

Dr. Jonah Yakel is a chiropractor and functional health practitioner who focuses on mold-related illness, inflammation, CIRS, and autoimmune-related conditions.  For years Dr. Yakel unknowingly battled with CIRS experiencing chronic pain, debilitating fatigue, and severe cognitive impairment despite working with some of the best doctors, sticking strictly to a pristine diet, and taking every imaginal supplement.  Not until he crossed paths with Dr. Richie Shoemaker and began his protocol, was he able to heal, recover, and ultimately, get his life back.


Today, Dr. Yakel provides video consultations and coaching while working in close collaboration with George Washington Center for Integrative Medicine to provide the intense follow up often needed for those recovering from Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) and Mold Toxicity.

Navigating and recovering from mold-related illness can be a complex and intensive process. Drawing from his personal experience and recovery, while also working with experts in the field including Dr. Richie Shoemaker, Dr. Yakel brings a depth of knowledge to support people in the healing process. This process includes removal from the toxic environment, cleansing and detoxifying the body of bio-toxins, and supporting the body’s recovery from damage caused by chronic inflammation as a result of mold exposure.

CIRS is real and destroys lives.  There is hope!

We look forward to seeing Dr. Yakel for Functional Medicine. This is the first time I’ve felt that someone is actually listening to my son and what he needs. We are not just being given a band-aid.

Is mold making you sick?

Let's find out

Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) affects multiple systems in the body causing many seemingly unrelated symptoms. People struggling with CIRS are often misdiagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Depression and more.

Working with Dr. Yakel

As I see it, the job of the practitioner is not to treat or remove symptoms that emerge as part of the disease process, but to support the body’s natural intelligence allowing for the completion of the healing process.
