[YEA]  Due to respiratory problems, I was allergy tested and came out positive for Aspergillus and Penicillium molds. In order to get a handle on the problem I had to address both the house and my physical health.

The first step was to stop the spores in the interior of the house. To do this we (and the pets) left the house while we ran an ozone generator on high for three days, and then aired it out well.

We then brought in a mold sniffing dog to detect where the mold was coming from, as there was no visual appearance of mold. The dog alerted to three locations in the house which were remediated by professionals. We also installed a PureAir purification system, and periodically run the ozone when we're not in the house.

To address my health, I started taking probiotics, MSM, DMG, Ester C, and Vitamin D during the day, and periodically activated charcoal just before bed. I also started drinking A LOT more water... Up to 3 quarts a day. In addition, I have done a total of 12 sessions in the Life Vessel.

All of this has been expensive, but I am MUCH improved and feel healthy again! I am now exploring mold allergy desensitization.

I should also mention that I took protease enzymes (with an alkalizing diet), and did a couple of liver cleanses (outlined in Andreas Moritz book).

Look up a product named Oxine. It is used for many things, to get rid of mold is just one. I used it as a spray for my chicken who had a fungal respiratory infection--2 nights of 6 ounces/gal in a humidifier and she no longer has a cough or rattle. Look it up and see what all it's used for--they clean duct work with it in commercial operations.

Hi. I was wondering how your recovery process was going and if you've tried anything new? I am also a victim of mold exposure and would love to exchange ideas.

Hi, I have been reading and experiencing this symptom, not sure how I got it. I work in a grocery store, I have been in 2 abandonded houses and a dirty basement that are at the apartments I manage on the side. I also took 100 years of wall paper off my walls and re did the original plaster. I used 2 cups of bleach to disinfect, peroxide to open pores, borax to clean, and epsom salt to sooth an provide sulfur in a tub of hot water for 30 min. With a window vented and air dried. I found this topical containing 50% permetherin liquid with aloe and lanolin. It is for repelling flies, ticks and stuff. So far I feel good tonight I have tried tea tree oil and dermatitis creams and bag balm w/ sulfur. And a bleach water spray down which helped. I had also tried vinegar diluted and all that seemed to do is burn.

Hey everyone I need some help, I'm suffering from a mold sickness causing hair loss and starting get slightly blurry vision. I'm currently drinking borax, washing my hair with borax, and taking vitamin D3, Zinc, selenium forte, chromium, flaxseed oil, vitamin C ascorbate and now I just bought oregano oil, and I also received sublingual drops to desensitize myself from mold.

Is it safe to add oregano oil and the sublingual drops to the stack of vitamins I am currently using?

Thank you for the informative information regarding fungus and mold removal (internal and external) will follow up with your suggestions. curious I am though years ago a physician friend suggested I might have yeast build up (too much wine- he scoffed) his past included research on nystatin which he recommended I try. A diligent dietary regime followed, for 6 weeks culminating in the most violent headache, while out canoeing, I have ever experienced. Expected, warned by my friend but forgotten that day it was due he said to yeast die off in the brain the final frontier he used to joke. I never felt better following his "treatment"

My question would nystatin work for mold as well?

OMG you're drinking Borax? Borax may remove mold on clothes but that's only if the temperature of the water is HOT. Also Borax is a chemical- ingesting it is only putting more of a burden on a system that's already overburdened not the mention the possibility of poisoning yourself.

[YEA]  Oil of Oregano after 3 months long nightmare

May of 2009 it started with sore throat and nasal congestion. 7th day i started feeling just fine. 8th day i woke up with a major sore throat then following 7 days i had chills (no fever) diarrhea, coughs, stabbing feeling all over my body. Then i went to see a doctor (no insurance) he said that my tonsils are infected so i have to take antibiotics and for hardship breating he gave me steroids. 4 days later tonsils still swollen and i cant breathe also diarrhea is full throttle. i was drinking 5-6 quarts of water every day. 19th day i went to see same doctor. listened to my lungs, ordered x-ray which came out clean and he told me that i am ok. BUT I WASNT. For diarrhea he diagnosed me with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) 6 days passed and my symphtoms are same but not getting worse.25th day i went and bought a humidifier for my room hoping to be able to sleep better. and also i wanted to close the a/c vent in my room. Right at that point I FACED THE REALITY. MOLD!!! my a/c vent was black in color. Very next day i called a company that tests homes for molds. Results came back in 3 days after i spent $400. my a/c unit had Aspergillus (high levels),Cladosporium (elevated levels) Penicillium (high levels). i went to see the doc again. he told me that its like impossible to prove that my health is bad because of those mold species.And addition to that he told me that skin prick test for this issue is expensive and i dont have insurance so he told me to just rest and pray that i will get better on my own. For the following 2 months i started getting worse. I quit my job. I was hopeless.

Then i read it somewhere on the net that OIL OF OREGANO will do the trick. I cut of eating anything that has yeast and started taking 4 oil of oregano capsuls every 8 hours and taking 1000mg vitamin c every 8 hours.Sublingual B12 25 drops everyday. 2nd day diarrhea gone. 7th day i am almost back to normal.

I hope this will help someone out there. I am a believer of oregano oils antifungal, antiviral, anti bacterial properties.

Oregano Oil, Garlic   1  0

[YEA]  In response to the mold problem: You must kill the mold/fungus that resides inside of you. You must starve, kill,and remove.

#1.Fact. Sugar FEEDS mold and fungus inside us.

#2. Corn and wheat feeds them as well. Oil of oregano kills, Put as many drops as you can fit into a gelatin capsule. The taste is awful. But not when you take it like this. Take two capsules of this 3 times a day, till bottle is gone, remembering to stay OFF THE SUGAR, CORN and WHEAT. Mayo clinic findings has determined that there is nothing stronger to kill mold, fungus, bacterial and viral infections. i know this works. Check out Doug Kaulfmans web site. Garlic kills pathogens too. Research!!! many things kill these bastards. It may be essential to rotate. Garlic for 1 week. And I mean RAW, chopped up garlic,(with food in your tummmy before swallowing).etc.

although oil of oregano works very well as an antibiotic and anti-fungal, be sure not to abuse it. just like prescription antibiotics your body can become dependent on them. it will also kill the "good" bacteria in your digestive system.

Oxine in a Humidifier   0  0   

Posted by Autumn (Louisville, Ky) on 06/10/2014

I have been looking into Oxine AH for use in a humidifier because of mold in our home but I cannot find any information on if this is okay for human use. I know it is okay for farm animals though, since they use this method for chicken coops. Any help on this? Thank you!!

Oxine is used to clean mold from ductwork commercially, so if they use it to clean your ventilation/heating system you would be breathing what's left. Could you seal the area being fogged? Or you could mix it in a spray bottle and wet the surface? Then you could limit the amount you would breathe in. Personally, I would get a timer to turn off the humidifier and leave the area--what little (if any) remains in the air I wouldn't be concerned with. What's on surfaces degrades quickly into harmless elements (water, I think, but you could look it up). You have to balance the mold issue v the oxine.

Ozone Treatment   0  0   

Posted by Srindge (Melbourne, Fl, Usa) on 09/17/2010

My husband is an acupuncturist & we live in Melbourne, FL. We recently had our air conditioner upgraded. Unfortunately since our previous one was barely operational when the new one kicked on so did the mold that had accumulated. We used many of the methods so noted but also added ozone treatment. It took a couple of days (we ran ours 8 - 12 hours during the day)and there is no further sign. Unlike all the internal bodily solutions the ozone treatment attacks the problem at source within the home and behind the walls. We found the following for a friend in the Chicago area where one can rent the equipment. Consider renting equipment or having professionals ozonate your home for you.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  Mold/Fungus: I have been following this illness for many years, the correct way as I recently read to pronounce mold is actually mold. Doctors do not or will not recognize any such illness such as mold or fungus but it does exist & is severely progressive, I was born into a very old farm house where there was no covering accept boards spaced far apart we lived right near lakes and oceans all around us, very cold & very damp. I have followed & monitored this specific illness. When I was very young I was way too skinny & no matter what I could not gain weight, when I was ten yrs. old I swelled way up which obviously meant my organs/kidney's were at risk, eventually the swelling went down, I had severe urges for sugar's, I continued to eat sweets year round. I continued on with life but I seemed to have a bad case of blurred vision, glasses did not work for this type of vision problems. I worked for years in nursing homes where the Dr. told me absolutely no heavy lifting but I needed & loved my job, I already had back problems which as the years rolled on my back worsened, to cut a long story short I kept falling down randomly with-out being aware before hand that I was going to fall. Later on in life I was having way too many issues especially severe anger where I used to be fun & out going, I cried all the time not knowing what was wrong, way too many Drs. examined me and gave me so many diagnosis I eventually gave up after so many tries & mis-diagnosis, my husband & I went on a cruise to Bermuda, I ate some"REAL"rich sweets/ I got back home just in time with absolutely no time to spare when I was having some severe pain in my lower part of my stomach, I had my husband take me to ER & leave me there, I was rushed into surgery immediately & found that my gallbladder was ready to explode, again back & forth I went to many Drs.

This time with another exam I found I had severe thyroid problems hence this joy ride after five plus years was great but then I started going right back into the same bad moods/sweating & much more. I then decided to take things into my own hands & do some serious investigations, I went to a neurologist, this Dr. was a family Dr., a neuro-surgeon & very thorough, he stated I had neuropathy, spondylosis, CMV which is a virus (mold) toxoplasmosis, some sort of algae again some thing to do with moisture//fungus etc. so recently I have been up & down sick wise eventually this mold/fungus has caused severe nerve damage after a few years & many tests later I started to continue on a journey of falling down randomly even though my illness is painful as well as these continued appointments & the run arounds, the most hurting & embarrassing situation was when the Dr. in ER forced me to walk to the bathroom/I told the Dr. the reason I was there was because I fell, therefore I could not walk, she told me I needed to get up & walk, I stood up & with a huge bang went right back down I felt as though I had split my legs in half as they were bent way in back of me, I felt like a twisted pretzel I begged & pleaded for these people called humans to please help me up but they stood there looking at me, finally I got to where I pulled myself up & after recovering I reported each & every one of them but of course the hosp. won the case dismissed. Again I found mold in my mouth as well as the stench smell of mold coming out of my body when I sweat, also I found this to be of very importance doctors are treating this mold/fungus as an infection which is treated with anti-biotics that is not a good idea, this is a very serious virus & should be treated as such.

I have been seriously looking into many herbs as odd as it may seem I found that pine needle tea is the very best tea you can drink, if any one ever notices, the pine tree never has any parasites, never decays or rots so to speak, I have been drinking this now for two years & the parasites are flooding my toilet/a month ago I fell sick again as I had stopped taking this tea prior, I could not get up or even lift my head up, I made a huge batch of pine needle tea & had the most exuberant & a great amount of energy. Another thing is psoriasis is another form of mold/fungus this is being treated with UV lamps. Here is the one of the web sites to read up on... http://www.ehow.com/about_6539988_uv-lamps-psoriasis.html "I feel it a great idea to try this UV on my body to see what happens. God Bless.

Along with the pine needle tea you could also steep some pine needles overnight in water and use this as a foot bath or add it to your bath water. Unlike what we are told the skin will draw it in and it will reach the interior of the body quickly. Also use it as a hair rinse to get into your scalp.

You could also make a pine needle tincture. Put some clean pine needles (completely covering the pine needles) in alcohol like vodka and leave it for a few weeks for the alcohol to draw out the nutrients and take a couple of teaspoons daily. You can find videos on youtube on how to make a tincture.

@Misty: Thanx for your post/testimony, and sorry about all the suffering and humiliation; I too have encountered similar if not more ridiculous situations.

As relating to your Pine Needle Tea, there are post here and elswheres about the powerful antifungal remedy of Kerosene or Turpentine. Search Walter Last for more info in addition to what you will find here on E.C. Personally, my few attempts with Turpentine were mixed as I also was suffering from severe or hyper-parasite infestation. Basically all I got was kidney stress and urine that smelled of Lysol house cleaner. Now that I have made major improvements on the parasites, I may try the Turpentine remedy again w/ probably a better result as my fungal issues are also in the severe category.

Two other remedies you may be interested in are Zapping. I have had very good results w/ a 30hz zapper; most notably increased energy. When I first tried the foot bath zap, I experienced major die off for 5 days then increased metabolism. Didn't cure the fungal but did help.

The other treatment I tried about 2 months back (after reading a post here on E. C. By ?? thank you) of a common veterinary treatment for flea control on pets. It is a very safe and effective chemical compound called Lufenuron. I have experienced very good results with one-a-day 750mg for 12 days

Keep us up-to-date as to your condition.

I have read and reread this information on and about pine needle tea and it's the very best, I have never tasted any better tea than this. I have done many web searches and found quite a few are doing the same.Just be aware of the type of pine needles you pick, please do not pick the needles that have pine cones, also try to get the smaller pine needles; this tea has a sweetness of it's own, I never add anything other than lemon once in awhile. http://www.medicinalfoodnews.com/articles/pine-needle-tea

Vitamin C   1  0   

Posted by Anonymouscat (Portland, Or) on 07/17/2013

[YEA]  Consider taking mega doses of Vitamin C (make sure there is no sugar added). Second, start alkalzing, You have to starve the fungus start on the anti-candida diet. Stop all sugars including fruit, dairy, no cheese, or flour products fried food soda pop or peanuts. Take a bath in borax. Then add 1/8 tsp of borax to 1 liter of water drink for 5 days on and I believe two days off. Take all of following take two pills 3 times a day garlic, (GSE) grapefruit seed extract. Also take the amazing Andrographis take 3 pills 3 times daily. Take golden seal tinctures and medicinal oregano oil daily. Also olive leaf extract is good too. The best antifungal tea is freshly grated ginger boil in hot pot of water for tea this is excellent. Take a great probiotic. Realize you liver will be working overtime so take a good liver tonic. Be Well.
