Treatments of mold exposure are numerous and include lifestyle remedies as well as natural supplements and cleanses. Effective treatment regimens involve specific treatment to eradicate the mold as well as supplementation for returning health. Natural cleaners are effective for eliminating mold much like supplements treat mold allergies.
What Is Mold Exposure?
The term mold is used to describe a variety of types of fungi that grow in filaments and reproduce via spores. Mold can occur almost anywhere and thrives in warm, damp, humid environments.
Exposure to mold can lead to a variety of adverse health effects including skin rash, itching, runny nose, eye irritation, cough, congestion and asthma. Additionally, excessive exposure to mold may lead to immune suppression and progressive lung conditions.
Natural Treatments for Mold and Mold Allergies
Effective mold treatment involves eliminating the mold at the source as well as treating allergies and other symptoms caused by mold exposure. Natural options safely eradicate the issues without causing additional harm. Borax is an effective mold cleaning agent while apple cider vinegar and colloidal silver are powerful supplemental health agents.
Borax is a natural cleaning agent composed of minerals. When diluted in water and sprayed or wiped on mold, borax eliminates the spores and prevents further development. Cleansing the affected area prevents further irritation.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is a natural detoxifying agent complete with a variety of vitamins and minerals. When used as a tonic, diluted with water, apple cider vinegar flushes the system of mold spores and other irritants. Additionally, apple cider vinegar supports overall health by delivering several key nutrients to the system.
A known antibiotic used for centuries, colloidal silver is antimicrobial and eliminates toxins from the body. As such, when taken in appropriate amounts, colloidal silver eliminates mold spores from the body as well as any associated irritants or toxins. Silver is also particularly effective as it does not create resistance or immunity in pathogens it kills.
Mold exposure is common and has detrimental health effects. When treated appropriately, however, mold can be eliminated as can the debilitating symptoms.
Hey Ted, I have lived in a house that has had been infested with mold for about ten years and I have started to see more and more hard as a result. I just had a question about Ammonia chloride. I am currently using ammonia chloride 99% and I was wondering if this is safe to use? and if not what % of ammonia should I be using? where could I buy it? Thanks
