For MODERATE sufferers,
here are some tried and true steps to finding relief.
1. Flush Nose with Saline Solution to Wash Away Foreign Antigens
This is the single most important thing you MUST do!
INSTRUCTION: Irrigate nose with saline wash twice a day with CitriDrops – add 1 drop per ounce of water. Use distilled water. Use either Grossan Hydro Pulse or Nasopure for irrigation.
WHY: Saline wash in combination with the anti-fungal properties of CitriDrops is a gentle and highly effective way to soothe and rinse your sinus passages and remove fungus as well. You are actually washing away the specific dust and spores from your nasal passages that would otherwise cause or continue to cause irritation and illness. This removes the mold (antigen) that is causing the immune reaction in the sinus that causes the infection.
The reason you use DISTILLED WATER instead of tap water is because of the levels of chlorine and minerals in regular tap water. Chlorine destroys the cilia lining the sinuses and the affects the good bacteria in the nose and the gut allowing Candida to overgrow and cause more inflammation.
(Note: we do not recommend the use of a Nettie Pot for chronic sinus sufferers, because it is not thorough enough for our protocol and can cause the irrigation to go into the middle ear via the Eustachian tube in the back of the nose. There have even been cases of death linked to the use of Nettie Pots and using water containing amoebas.)
OPTIONAL: Use a Facial steamer with CitriDrops
INSTRUCTION: Use Vick’s Personal Facial Steamer 2 times a day with 3 drops of CitriDrops Dietary Supplement to 4 oz. of water in steamer. DO NOT ADD MORE even if you add more water. Breathe in through nose and out through mouth for 5-10 minutes each time. Use filtered or distilled water.
WHY: The steam opens up your nasal passages and loosens the mucous making it easier to get rid of, penetrating further into your sinus passages than washing alone can accomplish.
2. Continue to Clear Mold Spores In Your Nose
INSTRUCTION: Use 3 sprays of CitriDrops Nasal Spray in each nostril, 2 times a day. You may use up to 4X day if needed.
WHY: Use CitriDrops Nasal Spray (anti-mold) as it will stay in the nasal lining longer to further protect the tissue from mold spores. It can be taken with you to use throughout the day to keep you clear. It is non-addictive.
NOTE: This product is not a decongestant spray such as Afrin that shrinks swollen tissue by constricting blood vessels. Its primary function is to remove mold spores, which it does very well due to its antifungal / antibacterial properties. It was developed specifically to aid those who react to mold more strongly.
3. Supplement Your Immune System
First 3 days – 1 tablet 1X a day after meal;
Next 3 days – 1 tablet 2X a day after meal (may continue as maintenance)
* If you are sick and if you have no adverse effects, increase dose to 3 tablets 2X a day after full meal, continue until well.NOTE: If you experience any negative results, such as stomach pain or constipation, reduce the dosage or discontinue use.WHY: Thymic Formula is paired with multivitamins to boost your immune system because some moderate and all severe sufferers often have highly suppressed immune systems caused by your body’s reaction to mold. The Thymus gland produces the fuel that runs your immune system. After age 20, our bodies produce less and less of it. By the time you’re 50, your body will produce very little naturally. This is why older people get sick more often than the young. The multivitamin will help with absorption of the Thymus supplement. Thymus supplements will raise T-cell counts, especially the suppressor T-cells that reduce inflammation, and enhance your entire immune system.
4. Raise Your Fungal Resistance
INSTRUCTION: Raise your fungal resistance with Sinus Defense.
For adults: 3 sprays 3X a day under your tongue. If you get re-exposed use 9 sprays 3X a day until your symptoms resolve.
Children under 12: Consult a Health Care Professional.
* Do not take with food, beverage, or brushing teeth for 15 min. after spraying Sinus Defense.
* Most dairy sensitive people have no problem with this product.
WHY: Raise your fungal resistance with Sinus Defense. The underlying problem in any allergy is that the body does not know how to process the antigen. This reaction causes the inflammation known as sinusitis, but a fungal allergy can have other symptoms as well. Sinus Defense is revolutionary because it “enables” the body to identify and rid itself of the fungal invader, and remember the antigen for future identification.
5. Boost Fungal Resistance by up to 3x
INSTRUCTION: Try Beta Glucans to boost effects of Sinus Defense by up to 300% Take 1-2 capsules AFTER food
WHY: You can accelerate the elimination of mold by 300% by taking Beta Glucans.
(a Beta 1, 3 Glucan) along with Sinus Defense. Beta Glucans binds with the fungal antigen creating a larger compound that is easier for the body to eliminate. The formula also pumps up your macrophage levels (they are the garbage collectors of the body) speeding the elimination process.
6. Test Your Home, Office and Car for Mold
INSTRUCTION: With the 5-pack of Mold Screening Test plates test your bedroom, den, office, car and anywhere else you spend at least an hour each day. It is EXTREMELY likely that somewhere in your daily routine you are becoming exposed to mold.
CLICK HERE for more specific information on how to test and where to test for mold.
WHY: Knowing where and to what degree you are being exposed to mold can greatly affect how you go about becoming well. People react to mold in varying degrees. Some people, about 16-20% of the population, are genetically predisposed to ‘over’ react to mold. Their T-Cell’s react to fungal antigens and that reaction is extreme! According to genetic science, in many cases, in a single family, there might only be one person with this genetic trait or several. In a Mayo Clinic study of chronic sinusitis, 93% of all diagnosed cases have the presence of mold in their mucous. The mold in our home, cars and office can often represent a greater danger than outdoor.
7. AFTER FINDING MOLD, REMOVE IT!
Depending on what you learn from the results of your Mold Screening Test Plates you will need to figure out how to best repair what is causing mold to grow somewhere in your daily environment. It could be as simple as repairing a leaking pipe, using a dehumidifier or identifying mold and its likely source of moisture. It can also be as extensive as a leaking foundation. In extreme cases, it is best to consult a professional. Otherwise, there are plenty of steps you can take on your own, as well.

8. Clean The Mold Spores From Your Home
If you discovered mold and need a way to clean your air and environment immediately you can use EC3 Candles for your air and EC3 Mold Solution for hard surfaces and textiles. With these two products you can effectively reduce the mold spore count in your area to 0 (zero) in as little as 3 hours. Do realize these are not permanent fixes. Mold will continue to grow until the source of the moisture is eliminated.
The benefit of using these products is that it lowers your ‘fungal load’ so that your immune system has a chance to ‘catch up’. If you don’t, then it is common for secondary illnesses to occur which can cause a domino effect of reactions by your body.
