Mold is a natural part of our earth. In nature, molds are a necessary part of the circle of life; responsible for breaking down dead organic matter such as decaying leaves and logs. This is vital to the health of planet earth and her natural landscapes. However, when growing indoors, mold can become a massive issue for the health of anyone living in that space!
Mold typically grows in areas of your home where moisture is present, which then spreads by releasing spores into the air. All-in-all there are over 1,000 different types of mold that can grow in your house. You may find mold in drywall, a leaky roof, or even be found on your Christmas tree! When molds spread, they bring allergens with them, causing a myriad of infections, irritations, and other health issues.
A person who is exposed to mold may find themselves suffering from mold toxicity. In the eyes of the medical field “mold toxicity is widely recognized as a cause of symptoms or illness in animals and people from exposure to moldy foods but has also come to suggest illness caused by mold growth in water-damaged buildings” (Dr. Ruscio - see sources below).
Unfortunately, for many years, mold wasn't considered to cause illness in humans or animals. As more and more medical professionals and individuals speak out, awareness continues to spread. However, the symptoms of mold illness are not specific, and can cause a large variety of issues depending on severity of exposure and type of mold.
Here are a few signs of mold illness:
- Brain Fog, and Trouble Focusing
- Fatigue and Weakness
- Unexplained Muscle Aches and Pains
- Numbness and Tingling
- Metallic Taste in the Mouth
- Excessive Thirst and Increased Urination
- Eye Problems
- Digestive Issues
- Night Sweats
After the mold is no longer present, the ultimate way to recover from mold illness is to detox and give your body the restart it needs to help you feel your best again. There are a number of natural foods and supplements that will help your body to regain it’s health. Here are a few mentions:
- Eliminate inflammatory foods (processed meats, gluten, dairy, corn, refined sugar)
- Activated Charcoal
As there isn’t much clinical data, be flexible and patient with your approach. Listen to your body, your medical experts, and trust that God is on your side.
Mold can cause very real and serious health issues. Luckily, it can be treated and prevented. Keep your homes clean of molds and if you believe you have mold in your home, call a professional and have it removed before the issues get worse!
