Recovering from Mould Toxicity and Chronic Illness
Mould illness is one of the most undiagnosed conditions of the 21st century. It is an insidious disease that can present with many different symptoms, most of them chronic and debilitating in nature.
Mould illness causes an overload of the system with toxins and disrupts the immune dynamic that would otherwise keep you well and functioning. It ends up affecting all systems of the body over time, leading to a living nightmare for those affected.
Unfortunately doctors are generally not aware of this condition, and sufferers tend to be get little help from the mainstream medical system.
The way mould illness affects a person are varied and individualised, and can be different from person to person.
As it affects the weakest systems first, there will often be a progressive spread through the body's systems, leading to issues such as : breathing difficulties, chronic nasal congestion, chronic cough, post nasal drip, persistent fatigue, brain fog, unexplained weight gain, nerve issues (pins and needles, numbness, shooting pains, muscle weakness), memory loss, problems focusing, depression, frustration, rage, mood swings, sleep disturbances, hormonal changes, joint pain, abdominal pain and diarrhoea as well as signs of autoimmunity.
As toxicity builds up in the body, the environment becomes ripe for other chronic, latent infections to emerge and thrive. Lyme disease, Epsteine Bar, Herpes simplex, Staph, Strep, Parasites ... the list is endless.
The symptoms are so varied that most people with mould toxicity end up with multiple diagnoses such as chronic fatigue syndrome, inflammatory bowel disorder, depression, auto-immunity, MS, EBV, candida, and are subsequently medicated for each condition separately, without ever addressing the underlying cause. Without removal of the mould exposure, people have little hope of getting better.
Most of the time, individuals with mould toxicity are dismissed as ‘hypochondriacs’ or as having some neurological imbalance for which there is no diagnosis or cure.
In his latest documentary called ‘Moldy’, Dave Asprey does a fantastic job of bringing to light the current available information on mould toxicity. It is a riveting watch and one worth watching if you have any symptoms of a chronic nature.
If you are living, working or driving in an environment where the air smells musty or mouldy, or if you have visible mould anywhere in your vicinity, you are inhaling mould spores. Water damage from floods, heavy rain, leaking roofs, or rising damp are primary drivers of mould growth. Humid, damp areas are at risk. Even clothes and furniture that smell musty will emit mould spores and toxins.
There are no two ways about it, if you are suffering from health issues, anything that harbors mould has to go. If this is where you live, your have either professionally remediate the area or leave. Naturopathic medicine and Bioresonance therapy supports the body to heal and recover.
