Toxic Mold

We don’t see mold. It finds its home inside drywall, crawl spaces, caulking, and other dark places where moisture is present.

The mycotoxins mold releases float around the house and deposit themselves on furniture, books, clothing. Most important issue is that mold and all the other critters that live inside buildings create a collection of symptoms. All these symptoms have a common cause: the mycotoxins they release damage the gastrointestinal (GI) tract’s gut lining.

According to the documentary film MOLDY, more than half the houses in the US have mold problems. Twenty-eight percent of us have genes that make us vulnerable to mold-related health issues. Environmental mold is a far bigger concern than asbestos or lead paint, and it affects us all, the film’s producer and toxic-mold victim Dave Asprey told reporter Karen Ziga for the website Thisoldhouse.com.

August is not a good month when it comes to floods and their toxic-mold aftermath. Hurricane Katrina hurled trillions of gallons of water upon New Orleans in August 2005. Historic rainfall levels unfolded over Detroit in August 2014. Flood waters inundated Houston in August 2017. New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania suffered torrential downpours in August 2018.

Yet, even without flooding, mold can take over homes.

“The surprising research shows that as many as 50% of residential and work environments have water damage and that mold toxicity should be considered in all patients with any chronic respiratory condition,” say Joseph Pizzorno, ND and Ann Shippy, MD in the journal Integrative Medicine.

“This is especially true in adult-onset asthma, two-thirds of which appears to be caused by toxins released from water-damaged buildings. The carcinogenic effects of food-borne mold contamination are also well documented.”

The doctors’ recommendations for when to consider investigating the presence of mold toxins or hidden water damage in homes and/or workplaces, are a patient with a chronic respiratory disease, especially asthma, neurological or immunological chronic diseases who is not responding as expected and all other causes have been ruled out.

Among the symptoms that holistic psychiatrist Judy Tsafrir, MD, has listed at Psychology Today, are weakness, aches, ice-pick pain, headache, light sensitivity, red eyes, blurred vision, sinus problems, and cough.
