MOLD TOXICITY

Mold Toxicity


Exposure to toxic mold can lead to mold toxicity or mycotoxicosis. Mycotoxicosis is poisoning of the body caused by exposure to mycotoxins that are produced by certain species of mold. Most molds are harmless to the body, but certain species of mold are pathogenic and produce toxic substances called mycotoxins that cause disease in some individuals. Mold  toxicity is highly underdiagnosed and is often misdiagnosed  as other conditions such as Lyme disease, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Mast Cell Activation Syndrome,  and SIBO.

Everyone is exposed to some form of mold in their environment daily and most people have the proper antibody and antigen production to address it. But about 25% of the population are reactive to mold and mycotoxins in our environment. So 1 out of 4 people are unable to produce the proper antibodies to mycotoxins. Most of these patients have genetic mutations of HLA and MTHFR (methylation) genes that prevent them from producing the proper antigens and antibodies to mycotoxins.

Weakened Immune System


Mood Disorders (Anxiety & Depression)


Skin issues and rashes


Brain Fog


Neurological Impairment


Visual Impairment


Hair Loss


Vertigo


Seizures and Tremors


Night Sweats


Temperature Dysregulation


Mold Exposure


Breathing

  • Breathing in spores and mycotoxins from our environment is the most common exposure for most humans.

Eating / Ingestion

  • Estimated that 25% of the world’s food crops are contaminated with mycotoxins.   Grains, coffee, nuts, and spices are the most commonly contaminated sources.

Skin Contact

  • This is the least common exposure, but mycotoxins can enter body through the skin, especially if wounds or cuts are present.

Mold Testing


Age Management of West Michigan utilizes a combination of traditional body inflammatory markers and a MycoTox profile test to determine the presence of mycotoxins in the body.

A comprehensive Stool Analysis is usually recommended to determine intestinal damage and microbiome imbalances in the GI system caused by mold exposure.

Mold Treatment


  • Eliminate Exposure to mold:
  • Decrease body burden of Molds:
  • Low Mold Diet:
  • Heal damage to GI system from mycotoxins:
  • Restore Gut-Brain Axis function:
Eliminate Exposure to mold:

Removing yourself from the exposure environment along with the removal of contamination and contaminated articles. Continued exposure of mold and mycotoxins significantly decreases success of mold toxicity treatment.

Decrease body burden of Molds:

Use of natural based antifungal and antimicrobial agents, IgG peptides, and binders to decrease and eliminate mycotoxins and molds from the body. IV Glutathione to support detoxification pathways.

Low Mold Diet:

Eating a low mold diet to stop the progression of mold growth inside the body and decrease mycotoxin and mold exposure. Provide nutrient rich foods to restore nutritional deficiencies caused by mold exposure.

Heal damage to GI system from mycotoxins:

The GI Repair and Restore program heals and restores function and microbial balance to gastrointestinal system.

Restore Gut-Brain Axis function:

LENS Neurofeeback to restore balanced brain wave activity, reorganize neural networks, and restore brain plasticity.
