Mold Infection and its Health Effects

1. Allergic Reactions and Respiratory Problems

Many people may go months or years without realizing they have been exposed to molds. Mold can effect breathing (respiratory system), allergies, itchy eyes, headaches, lack of focus. It can cause vestibular system issues, cognitive impairment, behavioral impairments etc..

2. Neurological Symptoms and Brain Function

Brain function is at large risk when we are exposed to molds and pathogens. Mold can cause neurological impairments such as brain fog, confusion, degeneration, and behavioral changes. Depression and anxiety can stem from these related issues.

3. Chronic Inflammation and Overall Health

The gut microbiome and brain interconnection is a bilateral system that effects the gut and the brain. What we ingest and what we put into our bodies is of direct correlation to how our brains feels. leaving us feeling fatigued, lethargic, tired and overwhelmed with the day to day life of simple activities and events. The bidirectional axis shows impact on our brain from what we may consume and have sensitivities to as well. Gluten and Dairy known as the two highest found sensitivities. These show direct designs of inflammation in the gut and brain.

Mycotoxins: The Hidden Dangers

Sources and Exposure Routes

Mycotoxins can be found in our food sources. We see many food sensitivities which many people may not think of. Common one found: Dairy, Gluten, Bananas, Black pepper. Hope Brian & Body Recovery Center test 95 IgG food sensitivities and 14 IgG major molds.

Exacerbating Inflammation

Excessive molds cause the cytokine response of pro inflammatory cytokines. This in excess causes an increase in inflammation. In time this exposure to mold can lead to autoimmune diseases and other viruses. When at risk for mycotoxins it may lead to toxicity of DNA damage and mutations, weaken the immune system.

Potential Health Risks

Candida has been proven to show a direct relation between axonal demyelination of neurons and neuroinflammation, resulting in Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Irritable bowel syndrome, and other autoimmunity and neuroimmune diseases have proven to stem from mold and mycotoxins.

You then can find the source at which you have been exposed to it. Check your house for wet areas, mold spores, flooded basement corners. You can have it tested by a specialist and they can start to eliminate this through specialized home plans.
