Brewer protocol[edit | edit source]
Dr. Brewer developed a treatment protocol after publishing his research findings on the effects of mold in chronic illness, which were co-authored with Jack Thrasher and Dennis Hooper. The protocol involves:
- Use of intranasal sinus products to remove the biofilm from the nose and sinuses
- Use of powerful antifungals, typically amphotericin and nystatin to destroy the mold or mycotoxins
