First, mold exposure occurs through our environment, particularly buildings.

These could be your current house or an old one, your workplace or a hotel that you have stayed in.

Research has shown that mold spores are found in buildings with even one instance of brain damage.

The main risk factors for mold sensitivity are -

  • Multiple chemical hypersensitivity or allergies
  • Immune disorders like Lupus and immune deficiency disease
  • Asthma in childhood
  • Exclusion from sunlight and outdoor air is a problem since molds thrive in dark and damp places.

How to diagnose mold toxicity?

Functional Medicine Doctors will help you diagnose mold toxicity issues by performing tests on various mold species.

Some mold species may not be toxic to your body. It is therefore important to test for any mold toxins.

Some common mold species that are pathogenic include --

  1. Aspergillus
  2. Penicillium
  3. Stachybotrys
  4. Fusarium,
  5. Myrothecium,
  6. Monascus
  7. Histoplasma

Your environment is another thing that we must test. Mold can be spread from your environment, so make sure you check your home.

Although there are many tests, the HERTSMI test has provided the best results. This test checks for mold spores, and then calculates a score that gives you an indication of how toxic your environment is.




How do you treat mold toxicity?

The most frequently asked question is "Is mold toxicity reversible?" It is possible to reverse mold toxicity in a large extent. However, if there has been severe damage to the body it is nearly impossible.

Mold toxicities can be treated with a three-pronged approach.

1) Remove mold from your environment. First, identify the source of mold in your environment. You might have mold in your home, at work, or other places you frequent. Once you have identified the mold-infested environment, it is crucial to get rid of it. Mold remediation is possible if the mold is found in your home or at work. This will ensure that you are not exposed to any mold toxins.

  1. Next, you need to get rid of these mycotoxins. This is an important step, but if it is not done properly, it can make you feel like words.

Mold toxins must be removed using a complete protocol. Only a qualified functional medicine doctor should perform this procedure. Many people try to remove mold toxins, and get sicker if they don't follow all the steps. Most people don't feel any better after removing mold toxins from their bodies.

3) Treating the underlying inflammation that mold toxins can cause in your body. This is responsible for all symptoms. Use a combination of anti-inflammatory diet and anti-inflammatory supplements that are specific to mold toxicity.
