What is the mold illness and how to recognize it
Mold is the things that can’t be smelled or seen anywhere near you, but it is hidden in your house it grows there and makes you feel sick symptoms. This is really causing danger to the health unless you act in time. How can you know?
The doctors can’t help almost not at all with mold issues and illnesses simply because getting mold anywhere is not thought to be a real medical or health problem. What is even harder is giving diagnoses to people and their poisoning because this poisoning is really similar to other conditions and illnesses almost imitating them and cannot be specified.
Symptoms of mold sickness
- Weakness, fatigue, postworkout tiredness
- Bad memory, no focus, foggy brain
- Joint pain and arthritis, cramps in muscles, aches
- Nerve pain
- Red eyes, bad vision, sensitive to light
- Sinus issues
- Cough, air hunger, asthma mimics
- Nausea, tummy pain, bad appetite
- Metallic taste
- Nerve pain
- Weight gain
- Static shock
- Urinating a lot
The toxic effect of mold can really be mistaken a lot with other problems and conditions. This was examined for 30 years and finally, it is proven what mold causes.
The mold is simply fungal type that best grows in filaments and create small spores during reproducing; then sprout and fly away anywhere and it is invisible to the naked eye. It thrives best in humid, damp, warm places in and out.
Most common states are Arizona and Nevada even though they are dry places in general, but still they have a problem with mold; poor ventilation in bathrooms, water leaks and floods in closed spaces.
Usually you can notice it in the corners of a bathtub or shower, the shower head, the bathroom floors if there is bad ventilation, also pets, carpet, shoes, clothes, papers and books. As well in your own respiratory system or air surroundings, so change filters of conditioners regularly. Best recommended filters are HVAC and to be changed at least every 1 or 2 months.
Water damaged buildings can cause a complex group of toxins in the air and dust too, and this causes a chemical mass that is toxic.
Mold creates mycotoxins in the air. There is no one particular toxin that creates all the mold issues. So, the easiest thing is to think that those buildings are the main cause. A research stated that sinuses are worsened by mold illness.
At least one-half of USA buildings has mold issues and water damages. Since we all are indoors most of the time, we are targets for it.
Why some people are more sensitive to this than others
At least 24% of people are more sensitive to this according to Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker who claims this firmly. Those that carry such sensitive genes get more chances of mold sickness even in small amounts.
This group showed 95% mold poisoning symptoms, and only 2% were really bad symptoms of a “sick gene” situation. Those that are not so sensitive are also a target, but not so seriously.
Those that are hypersensitive cannot detect the reasons for mold illness. Instead, they show symptoms of inflammation that could be chronic. Some are even not aware of this gene transfer to them.
Experts claimed you have to meet these criteria to have CIRS diagnose.
- Symptoms, history and signs of being exposed to biotoxins. The history must include molds that cause toxins and are there for exposure, as by EPA approval of Environmental Relative Moldiness Index (ERMI) testing. If the case is all about ciguatera or microcystin, the history must offer lab results with evidence of being exposed, even a little bit.
- Genetic predispositions for such illnesses linked with biotoxins, according to the HLA haplotype identification.
- Evidence and documents on abnormalities of the Visual Contrast Sensitivity (VCS) testings.
- Biomarkers that overlap vascular, endocrine and neuroimmune abnormal evidence that overlap with the Chronic Inflammatory Response syndrome. Those that have a history of these VCS tests, specific genotype and exposure to biotoxins have greater chances of manifesting the lab abnormalities as noticed in the Chronic Inflammatory Response syndrome. The rest of evidence are still examined.
What to do next
If you suspect having mold or mold health complications do as much as you can;
- Learn more about mold and its effects; read the book of Dr. Shoemaker
- See the amount of mole in your house. The ERMI test will help you a lot and also have some call an environmental specialist to check and visually diagnose rooms with mold
- Find yourself a medical person or clinical person trained according to the Shoeman protocol.
