For those who have been or are being exposed to fungi mold in water damaged buildings, please follow these important treatment strategies. Especially if anyone is noticing any of the symptoms of mold sickness (see previous post), here are helpful measures to employ:
Antihistamines such as Benadryl, Claritin or Zyrtec combined with Pepcid can reduce allergic symptoms.
Antileukotrienes such as Singulair can further reduce and prevent allergy symptoms from mold sickness.
Toxin Binders soak up mycotoxins in the gut to ensure their proper elimination, rather than allowing them to be reabsorbed into the system. Calcium d-glucarate, triphala, Hemp fiber, Psyllium and activated charcoal aids the process or binding mucotoxins.
Use of gentle laxatives, magnesium citrate, or buffered C powder to keep bowels functioning normally while on toxin binders.
Metabolic Detoxification Supplements are used to detox mycotoxins from inside your body. Examples include liposomal glutathione, milk thistle, n-acetylcysteine, glycine, glutamine, alpha lipoic acid, and taurine.
Antioxidants such as vitamins A, C and E block the harmful effects of the toxins.
Frequent use of saunas, when available, promotes toxin elimination through sweat.
Antifungals are prescription medications that may be required when someone actually has fungus mold growing in their body. This is happening frequently, especially in people with health issues like diabetes and other on certain medications that suppress their immune system.
Avoid steroid creams and nasal sprays because this will suppress your immune system in a way that will amplify mold sickness!
Avoid antibiotics because this will also allow for mold overgrowth in your body.
It has been nearly impossible to get a restock of these medications in my clinic and the local pharmacies. For this reason, I have reached out to doctor friends for help. Here is the plan we have in place so far. It is a good plan. Please help us!
We are proposing putting together packets of 3 custom formulas designed to reduce the harmful effects of mycotoxins and mold spores. These packets are to be used preventatively for persons with prolonged mold exposure, and for others who are experiencing symptoms after exposures. Working with California medical and naturopathic doctors, we have been able to secure significant discounts. The mold detox packets contain these natural, safe products listed above.
Please consider making a grant to Freeport Rotary club specifically for purchase of these essential mold sickness nutriceuticals.
