Do you think that you have been exposed to mold?
There are thousands of specifies of mold or fungi in our environment, although only some create mycotoxin spores that cause damage our cells. Symptoms of mycotoxin exposure can vary from person to person, depending on genetics, length of time being exposed, and predisposing medical conditions.
Symptom of mycotoxin exposure can include:
- Brain fog
- Difficulty falling and staying asleep
- Slurred speech
- Hormone changes
- Memory loss
- Joint pain
Fungi are able to grow on almost any surface, especially if the environment is warm and wet. Inner wall materials of buildings, wall paper, fiber glass insulation, ceiling tiles, and gypsum support are all good surfaces for fungi to colonize. These fungi then release mycotoxins into the environment causing symptoms of many different chronic diseases. Diseases and symptoms linked to mycotoxin exposure include fever, pneumonia-like symptoms, heart disease, rheumatic disease, asthma, sinusitis, cancer, memory loss, vision loss, chronic fatigue, skin rashes, depression, ADHD, anxiety, and liver damage.
Mycotoxins testing is easy to do.
You will need to take liposomal glutathione for 7-10 days to help pull mycotoxins from cells, then collect a first morning void urine specimen. Just like the Organic Acid Test, you will need a kit from Great Plains Laboratory.
This test does not test for total body burden, only exposure. It is a great tool to figure out if your symptoms are related to exposure.
