Lisa Petrison, PhD, is a mold avoidance advocate who lives with myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). She was a tenure-track Professor at Loyola University Chicago until she was disabled at age 36.[1]

Paradigm Change[edit | edit source]

Petrison is the executive director of Paradigm Change, an organization she founded in 2013 which aims to disseminate information and help fund research about toxicity in chronic multisystem illnesses.[2] She has also founded the Locations Effect website along with Paul Beith, which focuses on the role of outdoor toxicity in ME/CFS and related illnesses. She has published writings on mold avoidance, most notably the book Back from the Edge which features Erik Johnson, published in 2013, as well as a book called A Beginner's Guide to Mold Avoidance, co-written with Erik Johnson.[3]

As a result of extreme mold avoidance she has mostly recovered from chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). She also credits her recovery to detoxification, especially coffee enemas and cholestyramine; a quality all-organic diet; fermented foods; treating parasites; Vitamin C IV's; neural therapy; and homeopathy.[4]
