So what did you think about yesterday's list of symptoms caused by a "MOLD" invasion to the body???
Have we "all" been infected with "MOLD" spores at some point in our lives and just don't know it???
Well . . . as we've discovered from yesterday's post . . . "mold" doesn't always have to show up in our "sinuses" or in the form of allergies or "asthma" . . . it can actually show up "anywhere" in the body.
Now, with that being said . . . recent studies put the number of different types of "mold species" at about 100,000 on the planet . . . BUT . . . not all of them affect the body with discomfort or negatively.
However . . . some "molds" have the potential to "produce" toxic agents called "MYCOTOXINS" in the body.
And with this . . . we can become "very, very" ill.
You see . . . "mold toxicity" is a tricky condition to navigate . . . and often . . . it's responsible for those unresolved symptoms that the doctor can't explain.
So how many of us . . . may just "really" have . . . a "mold" issue harboring deep within us???
Well . . . studies estimate about 5 - 10 million people in the US are walking around with "mold toxicity" and don't even know it.
Now . . . out of all the "molds" that are out there . . . "only" certain kinds of "mold" cause allergies or other negative symptoms to our health . . . and if severe enough . . . they can even cause death.
So let's better understand . . .
There are 5 categories of "toxic" mold . . . and they would be . . .
But . . . some of the "species" included in these categories may only cause hay fever-like allergic reactions . . . while others can cause potentially deadly illnesses.
Okay . . . so now I'm sure you're wondering what's the most "toxic" type of mold???
Well . . . that would be . . .
And this "mold" is referred to as . . . "BLACK MOLD"
And yup, yup, yup . . . of course . . . that was the "mold" we found in the first house we flipped and a few others on the way about 16 years ago.
You see . . . science says that "Stachybotrys" can cause anything from flu-like symptoms to diarrhea, headaches, memory loss, severe respiratory damage and ultimately . . . everything on the list I gave you yesterday
So what does "mold" do to the brain???
Well . . . it causes "inflammation" of the brain . . . and can trigger the body to call out an "immune response" . . . which can attack brain cells causing "impaired cognitive function" . . .
And long-term "chronic inflammation" . . . can cause long-lasting cognitive impairments like Alzheimer's .
So I guess . . . that brings up another "QUESTION" . . . is "Alzheimer's" . . . . really just a "MOLD" issue???
Well . . . I'll have to do some research on that one . . .
But for now . . . how do we figure out . . . if this is an issue for "our" health???
Well . . . let's continue on . . . and discover the possibilities . . . and then I'll tell you what "protocol" I'm doing to heal "MY" invader.
