Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?
Have you been ill for years and don’t know why?
You may be suffering from immune suppression that causes a multitude of health problems, such as: Arthritis, Asthma, Bladder Paralysis, Bronchitis,Cardiac Arrhythimia, Cardiovascular Disease, Candidiasis, Chronic Fatigue, Cognitive Dysfunction, Deafness, Fibromyalgia, Food Allergies, Flu-Like Symptoms, Gastric Reflux Disease (GERD), Memory Loss, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS), Mulitple Hormone Deficiencies, Muscle and Joint Pain, Muscle Paralysis, Muscle Weakness, Pituitary Damage, Seizures, Severe Head Ache, Skin Disorders, Tremors, Vertigo and Dizziness
It is entirely reasonable to think that age is the only underlying factor in the adult onset of these diseases. This is because the Thymus gland which produces the fuel that runs your immune system slows production as you age. In fact, by the time you are 50 your Thymus will be producing almost no hormones at all!
Don’t blame it all on age, there is another culprit to consider: Mycotoxin Exposure. There are 400 different Mycotoxins and they can destroy every system in the human body. These toxins inhibit the synthesis of proteins which the body needs to repair itself. Additionally, these toxins cause immune system suppression that allows bacterial infections to trigger the onset of many different types of disease.
The source of these Mycotoxins is mold; which is a fungus that grows in multicellular filaments called hyphae and single-cell filaments called yeast. In order for mold to grow it requires a moisture level of 50% and a food source such as wood, paper, or cloth. Once it begins to grow, mold expands exponentially and can become a big problem very quickly.
Eliminating the mold problem is the key to managing your illness. Simply eliminating surface mold is not enough, you must correct the underlying problems of moisture and fuel to stop the growth, otherwise the problem will just return. Once the source of the mold is identified and removed then you can clean the mold from your living space to create a healthy living environment.
Things to Remember”
Cleaning a mold problem and managing its health side effects can be complicated depending on the severity of the issue. Here are some guidelines to help you make a sound decision on how to best handle this problem:
– If you are sick the best solution is often to get into a safe place where you feel best.
– Do not take anything that was in the contaminated area that has not been washed in EC3 Laundry Additive or treated with the EC3 Mold Solution Concentrate.
– If you are sick, eat a low carbohydrate diet that includes meats, seafood, vegetables and fruit and only non-glutinous grains. Fungus needs sugar to grow in your body so you are essentially removing sugar from your diet.
– Follow the treatment protocol according to your symptom evaluation score
– If you are not very sick, treat your environment with the environmental treatment protocol (ETP). You will want to test before and after to make sure that you have the mold under control.
– If your mold problem has been caused by water damage or is particularly large, you may want to get it treated by a professional environmental company.
Remember, once you have symptoms of mold exposure you must remove mold from both your body and environment, including your clothing and home contents in order to regain your health. Your symptoms will worsen and could even lead to more serious illness if the problem is not remediated. The good news is you have more options than ever before to help you with this problem.
We have been going to drs and as soon as we mentioned that we were exposed to mold they don’t want to help or refer us to another dr. We are so sick and literally going crazy. Any info you can send to us to help us get thru this is greatly aporeciated
Thank you for your comment. I would first suggest you google for local Doctors that treat Environmental Illness. You should be able to identify MDs, DOs, or Naturopathic Doctors that specialize in environmental medicine. Traditional medicine does not emphasize mold and it becomes a diagnosis of exclusion. The traditional diagnostic process can send you to numerous physician specialties, procedures and medicines (taking months at significant cost) before even recognizing mold. I published this article that addresses discussing mold to physicians: It’s-time-to-open-your-doctors-eyes-to-mold-and-mycotoxins/“.
The next suggestion is for you determine if you have a mold problem. Look for leaks, any damp materials, and a “musty” smell. If you can see the mold or smell it, it is likely at dangerous levels. You can also test your home using the simple petri dish approach or EC3 Mold Screening Test Kit. Using a biological culture is sometimes much clearer than estimates from various methods a professionals use. These take 5 days so they have to use technology estimates to provide immediate results. Having conclusive results helps focus the Dr; however, if they don’t treat or recognize mold illness, you should find one who does.
Finally, regardless of whether you have sinus issues or not, if you think it is mold, rinsing you sinuses with a nasal wash system multiple times a day is the single most effective way to clear out the mold that accumulates in your sinuses before it begins to reproduce and cause inflammation and mucous production. Spraying and fogging your home with EC3 mold solution will also help reduce the mold in your air. Your body can heal if it is not being constantly assaulted by new spores. You heal most when you sleep.
