Mold Toxicity Testing and Treatment

NG Health is proud to have MD’s and Wellness experts on staff who specialize in this complex and diverse field of medicine.
Virtually every neurological disease has been associated with mycotoxin exposure: autism, Alzheimer’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease. There is a strong association between mycotoxin exposure and cancers, especially liver and kidney cancers. Diseases and symptoms linked to mycotoxin exposure include fever, pneumonia-like symptoms, heart disease, rheumatic disease, asthma, sinusitis, nose bleeding, cancer, memory loss, vision loss, chronic fatigue, skin rashes, depression, ADHD, anxiety, and liver damage. A study of patients with chronic fatigue found that all the patients had high levels of mycotoxins in the urine.

 Exposure to toxic mold can have dangerous health repercussions. Symptoms can be subtle and go undiagnosed for years. Reactions to mold can also be obvious including irritation of the nose, throat, and eyes, with symptoms including coughing and wheezing. In some people, the skin also has a reaction such as rashes and mysterious hives. Mold can suppress the immune system, making other illnesses tricky to get rid of.

NG Health can help you regarding education about the symptoms, testing, and treatment of mycotoxin illness.

Symptoms of Mold Toxicity

The most common symptoms of mold exposure are a stuffy nose, itchy skin, and red, watery eyes. However, people who are allergy sufferers can suffer respiratory symptoms or have an asthma flare-up.

Prolonged exposure to toxic mold can have the effect of memory loss and confusion. The patient may also experience muscle cramping, anxiety, and difficulty breathing.

If you have a pulmonary or lung condition, it is extremely important to avoid exposure to mold. Mold will exacerbate symptoms that exist with conditions like asthma, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), and cystic fibrosis.

How Is This Approach To Toxicity Testing and Treatment?

Testing for Mold Poisoning

Symptoms alone are not proof of mold poisoning, but its symptoms do warrant an evaluation by a physician. The patient should be sure to see a doctor who is board-certified in pulmonary care in order to determine whether the signs are indeed connected to mold poisoning or to something else.
The doctor will take a health assessment and health history, and will order blood testing. Antibodies in the patient’s body will be checked for a reaction to mold and to other allergens and poisons. The severity of the reaction will also be determined.
A skin test will also be part of the doctor’s examination. If the patient has an allergic reaction, it will show up in the form of a rash or bumps on the skin.

Treating Mold Allergies or Exposure

Allergy shots and oral medications, including over-the-counter antihistamines, may be recommended or prescribed to treat mold toxicity. Detoxifying the body from the effects of mold toxicity is best performed with a multi-pronged approach.

Holistic medicine is also useful in treating mold poisoning, particularly by employing therapies that harness the body’s natural healing processes. These natural processes can help to trigger antioxidants and act in combatting toxicity.

Allergy Testing for Mold Toxicity

If you are experiencing a sudden or growing reaction of the sniffles, mild rashes, or trouble concentrating, you may be experiencing the effects of mold toxicity. Because these symptoms can indicate many different health conditions, it is imperative that you see a doctor who specializes in lung conditions in order to receive an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
