How do you treat mold toxicity?

It is common to wonder if mold-related health problems are reversible. Many can be reversed with time, but it is almost impossible if there are major health problems caused by the mold

Treating mold toxicity requires a 3-pronged approach:

1) Removing mold from your home - why, where and how. Once you've identified the location of the mold, limit your exposure to that area as much as possible. Mold can grow anywhere, including your home or office. And it can lead to serious health problems. Mold remediation allows you to save money and get healthy again.

  1. The next step is to work on removing these mycotoxins from your body. This is a crucial aspect of the detoxification process and if not completed correctly will render benefits minimal or nonexistent.

Removing mold toxins is a very serious and can be dangerous if not done right. I recommend that you see a qualified functional medicine physician to remove the mold and toxins from your home. This will not only help you get rid of any fungus, but also protect your health as it does not make your body more delicate or negatively affect other chronic illnesses such as arthritis. Most people are unable to go mold-free while still experiencing symptoms related to this. It usually takes time to heal completely.

3) Mold toxins are the underlying cause of most symptoms of mold exposure. You should try to eat an anti-inflammatory diet and take supplements like curcumin if you are exposed to mold often enough.

4. The last step is to update yourself with all the channels for detoxification so you can be prepared no matter how you come into contact. This means exploring natural therapies, probiotics, and chelation for example.
