Mold Toxicity 

Mold is a living organism that grows in locations with excessive moisture, organic material and oxygen by releasing toxins and spores. Therefore, certain quantities and types of mold can be toxic for humans, animals and other plants. Mold toxins and spores are very small and unable to be seen but can travel in the air very easily. In high quantities they can be ingested, inhaled and absorbed. Mold toxins will accumulate over time and cripple the host in a variety of ways, mostly by immune suppression. The spores can also take up residence in the nasal passages and GI system after ingestion leading to a variety of infections and symptoms. The toxins will affect the mitochondria of the cell particularly in the central nervous system.

Causes of Mold Growth
  • Moisture/Humidity

  • Warm, enclosed, and dark environments

  • Poor ventilation

  • Water damage/ water leaks

  • Stagnant water- flooding or poor drainage

  • Organic material to grow on- wood, drywall, fabric, cotton, cardboard,  

Where it Grows

ROOF AND ATTIC

  • Flashing, gutter, or canale leaks

  • Bad seals around penetrations, like chimneys

ROOMS

  • Closets with high humidity

  • Window and roof leaks

  • Flooding

LAUNDRY ROOM

  • Washing machine mold

  • High humidity

  • Plumbing leaks

KITCHEN

  • Plumbing leaks around sink and drain pipes

  • High humidity in cabinets

  • Refrigerator ice maker leaks

  • Decaying food and trash

 

AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEMS

  • HVAC systems causing condensation

  • Mold inside HVAC systems (on coils and in ducting)

  • Inadequate ventilation

BATHROOM

  • Plumbing leaks around sink, bathtub, shower, and toilet

  • Elevated humidity

  • Caulking that is lifted or broken

WINDOWS

  • Moisture from bad seals

BASEMENT AND CRAWLSPACE

  • Moisture transfer through cement floors and walls

  • Water settling against foundation

  • Dirt crawlspaces without proper ventilation

  • Standing water in sump pumps

Treatment: 

1. Remove exposure 

2. Remove all colonized mold in the body 

3. Detox all accumulated toxins in the body

4. Repair tissue and cellular mitochondria 

5. Replenish hormone and nutrient levels
