While common mold is typically harmless, it can cause concerning health conditions for those with weakened immune systems, asthma, or lung disease. If you have developed such a condition, you not only need to treat the contracted illness but also support your immune system. To do so, we suggest utilizing a holistic approach combining traditional treatment with nutritional support, like oil of oregano, for the best results.

What Is Aspergillosis?

Aspergillosis is the name given to a group of illnesses that are caused by a certain type of mold. The illnesses adversely affect the respiratory system and are typically developed in conjunction with another illness or condition.

The symptoms of aspergillosis vary depending on the type of illness you have; however, several signs are common. If you experience an allergic reaction to the mold, you’ll likely develop a fever, a cough that may bring up blood or mucus plugs, and worsening asthma. You can also develop a fungal mass that causes coughing that brings up blood, wheezing, shortness of breath, unintentional weight loss, and fatigue. Additionally, some forms of the illness present as an infection, which causes fever, chills, cough, severe bleeding from the lungs, shortness of breath, chest or joint pain, nosebleed, facial swelling, and skin lesions.

What Strain of Mold Causes the Illness?

While many forms of mold are harmless, a few are more detrimental. A. flavus, A. niger, and A. fumigatus cause aspergillosis infections most often. These species produce large quantities of oxalic acid as they multiply in the respiratory system, which causes the myriad of symptoms.

Can I Treat Aspergillosis Naturally?

Consulting a licensed physician will help you obtain an accurate diagnosis as well as a treatment plan based on the severity of your condition. However, nutritional supplements and natural treatments are effective supports to any treatment plan. Options such as garlic, olive leaf extract, and coconut oil help fight infection and relieve the system safely and naturally.

1. Garlic

Garlic is a powerful anti-fungal remedy that also has antimicrobial and blood cleansing properties. The allicin in garlic helps destroy the mold in the body and relieves infection quickly.

2. Olive Leaf Extract

Olive leaf extract contains the chemical oleuropein. This chemical has strong anti-fungal properties, so the extract can be used to directly kill mold and other fungi.

3. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil contains lauric, capric, and caprylic acids, which all have strong anti-fungal properties. The oil also stimulates the immune system and serves as a mild laxative, so it flushes the dead mold out of the body.

In addition to these treatments, be sure to eat a balanced diet, drink plenty of water, and do whatever you can to support your immune system. Read below for more recommendations from Earth Clinic readers and let us know what natural remedy worked for you!

I also have been told I have Aspergillosis, I have had a LOT of congestion. What I found to help me Tremendously is Astragulas Extract, That stopped the congestion. I also take Oregano Oil, Black Walnut Freeze Dried and 2000mg of Vit-D 3. But not altogether.

I have been juicing green drinks like Kale, Romain, Celery, 2 or 3 dropper fulls of Wheat Grass juice, Cucumber, I put a little stevia in the drink to make it better tasting.

I also use Wheat grass juice. It is NOT the wheat we all have been told to stay away from. It is Liquid Form. I put 2 dropper fulls in a glass of water and drink it . The taste is like Green Tea. Look up Wheat Grass and the Benefits it can do to heal you also. The Most Thing that I can say that has helped me is the Astragulas Extract. Pull a search on it and get info on it, It really helps!!! I will try and post sites for you to get info on what I have said above that can help you.I know it has helped me beyond what words can say. I pray this helps someone else also and Children

Wheatgrass juice can dissolve the scars that are formed in the lungs...

This is about Wheat Grass:

This site is very good on the Info of what Wheat Grass can do for you.

Now for the Astragulas info: I just copied this for you
Astragalus is used for the common cold, upper respiratory infections, allergies, fibromyalgia, anemia, HIV/AIDS, and to strengthen and regulate the immune system. It is also used for chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), kidney disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure.

Some people use astragalus as a general tonic, to protect the liver, and to fight bacteria and viruses. Astragalus is commonly used in combination with other herbs. For example, in combination with Ligustrum lucidum (glossy privet), astragalus is used orally for treating breast cancer, cervical cancer, and lung cancer.

What are the health benefits of Astragalus? In addition to its reputation as a whole-body protector, astragalus improves digestion and metabolism. It is used for cases where fatigue, lack of appetite, and diarrhea are present. Also, studies have shown that astragalus stimulates the immune system, and it seems to be particularly useful for those who suffer from frequent colds and flu. Astragalus has been known to help maintain normal functions of the liver, lung, kidney, stomach, and heart, to boost energy, detoxify, improve white blood cell growth, and help reduce side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. Astragalus is used in the recovery from severe blood loss of a traumatic injury or from childbirth. It is used for diabetic patients and arthritic conditions.

There is a Ton of info on the internet helping you learn about Astragulas. Please Search. Knowledge is the KEY to getting better. Drugs do NOT cure anything.

For all you Dear people with Abpa or chronic Aspergillosis.

I have been there. I know what you are going through. Please know it isn't a death sentence. I had a very very bad case. Now five years later I am doing great. But I had to pretty much learn from the websites in England. They are ahead of the game. And on my own trial and error some BIG errors.

I just want to let you know my IGe was 4300 some go as high as 12,000.

1. First do not drink orange juice or lemon aid or any citrus. You can make your own but the commercial is full of aspergillus.

2. Do not eat nuts, unless you soak them in vitamin C then reroast them.

3. Do not drink sake as it is made with aspergillus,

4. Do not take beano made with aspergillus.

5. Do not take digestive enzymes, made with aspergillus.

6. Do not dust or vacuum ever! Have someone else do it.

7. Do not garden or have house plants.

8. Do not have birds, chickens or pigeons near you.

9. Stay away from all chemicals. You will also be very sensitive to malls and stores as clothes are all sprayed with pesticides, formaldehyde, sizing, and cotton has a ton of aspergillus. Clothes you buy need to immediately be washed.

Read all labels on food. But eat clean. I have more if you want to write here or write to me personally feel free.

Good morning,

Wow, now I know why I also have an issue with clothes and the material; especially with the color black, blue, and red/pink. I was shocked to learn what you posted, and was hoping you could send me a list please? My son and I both have are allergic to Aspergillus. My son, however, has autism and is non-verbal. He is 22, and most of the time I can figure out where he is being agitated, but there are many times I can't. He cries and becomes so upset until he calms down (probably because he manages to deal with the pain from it). I can't begin to tell you how much your list would mean to mean.

Thank you,

Interesting after getting a number of what are probably Aspergillus Lesions on different areas of my body - particularly the back of my hands. Which occurred after removing a ridiculous amount of mold off this crummy 60 year old rotting unventilated house in an area that has a year round average humidity of 80 to 100% (lots of fog). Initially, months ago I started with things like NeoSporin, and other AntiBiotic creams - not to mention wasted time and $$$$$ going to Doctors - It finally occurred to me these are Fungus or Mold infections on my skin - never heard of that before - funny none of the Doctors even mentioned it might be a fungus or mold.

Anyhow been through Tolnaftate, Butenafine, Magnesium Sulfate, Iodine etc. etc. lesions would get better then come back.

Finally now after two weeks of using Borax along with just regular hand soap and washing my whole body in it daily all my skin itching is GONE! The backs of my hands look completely normal (I can't believe it!) - every time I wash now I use Borax along with just some regular hand soap. Now I have to admit that initially for the first few days the infected areas turned bright red - like a sunburn - and itched like crazy but now the skin there looks totally normal and does not itch anymore. Had a lesion on my back for quite some time and now it is almost completely undetectable (this old moldy house YUCK!) Wash all my clothes in it and have taken a empty baby powder bottle, filled it with borax and I sprinkle the inside back of my tshirts with it in morning, and then spray it with a combination of distilled water and magnesium sulfate. I can't wait to see that area on my back finally completely disappear.

DNA Health Testing

Posted by Robert Henry (Ten Mile, Tn) on 11/03/2017

HI U OLD PATOOTS DOIN,,,,,,,,, our natural doctor's office is so backed up in their testing that we can now only get our DNA test run every 6 months now. The Sept test showed that my Aspergillus Niger fungus has gone from a vital force of 8 six months ago, to a VF of 48. I would have poo pooed this off, except my Natural Doctor showed me the Q tip in a vial how this fungus has grown in a few weeks. It was alarming to say the least.

This fungus is deadly and had reduced the VF of almost all my organs. I already knew that something had affected my eye sight, lungs and sinus. It is in my ears for certain. His method of addressing the problems he finds…. is using homeophatic herb drops morning and night. I am doing that along with other things I know that will address fungus such as ozone, GSE, garlic and other naturals. He also said that I must find the source of the fungus. After the CPAP supplier called telling me that they are sending all new hoses, water reservoir, etc. I asked why? He said that over time fungus and mold will grow and get into your body. No sheet Sherlock. I then learned from other CPAP users that that had happened to them. I now know how to control that problem by adding CSE to my reservoir and bagging weekly in ozone. Lordy, I am going to be smart in 4 years at 85. I missed my other goals of 65 and 75. I have also learned that this fungus is in lots of our vegetables, especially peanuts which we raise and buy. I just wish all of you had a way to get this DNA test done on a regular basis. It tells you your problems as they evolve. The medical establishment is fighting this test tooth and nail. By the way, my Anti-Aging doctor say her tests show I no longer have cancer, but my DNA test shows that it is present, but not detectable by allopathic methods. By the way, this DNA test cost us $100.

Hope this ditty has caused you to think because it has my mind reeling. Life is interesting.

HI U OLE PATOOTS DOIN,,,,,,,,,,,,,, let me tell you a story and you will be smart as me.

All critters have a given frequency. If you know that frequency, then you know the critter. If you hit that frequency, then that critter is dead. It is the foundation of Hulda Clark and the foundation of the Royal Rife Machine that can cure any disease, which was known back in the1930's. Are you sheeting me? Nope, that is the dirty little secret that is slipping out. I write about the DNA test that we have done that tells us that normal doctors have no clue. All our doctor does is swab our mouth and let his computer program read the frequencies it finds. These frequencies tell you your ails. It is just that simple. Today, we got our ultra violet blood irradiation, which was done prior to 1950 before anti biotics were known. Now antibiotics are useless, so we are back to square one. We discussed our Aspergillus with our natural doctor. He also has this ailment and it is tough to shed. He did his drops, and also the Big Pharma drug, but he still had the fungus. He then started Silver Nitrate and diatomaceous earth. That worked, but did not totally eliminate, so he started adding activated charcoal and now his Aspergillus Vital Factor is survivable . He is a believer in activated charcoal. In our future life, you will enter a chamber and the frequencies in your body will be measured.That will tell you your ails. You will then go into another chamber and these same frequencies found will be directed back into your body and you will be healed. It will be just that simple.Our medical folks are treating our symptoms, not trying to heal us. There is little money in that course. Is life interesting or what?

HI U GOOD PEOPLE,,,,,,,, freezing weather coming so we went to the farm and tried to get ready. The frosts have killed the volunteer potatoes in our raised bed so I dug us a mess. All my life I have planted potatoes in the garden and potatoes missed in the summer only rotted. Now that we are using a raised bed they just sprout and make fall potatoes. Using a raised bed, we now get potatoes in the summer and also fall and winter. Gathered a bushel of Arkansas Black apples and will turn them to juice. Against the law.

Dr Marcola had an interesting article today. The U of Mass. found that the most effective way to remove pesticides from the surface of fruit and vegetables is pain ole baking soda. All these years we have used bleach. We will continue to use bleach for our eggs, but are now switching to baking soda for all other.

Called my PMEF guy about the program to use for my Aspergillus. He is a Ga. Tech graduate, so we bond. He told me what program to use, but added that I need to use a special brand of Oregano that is beeswax coated such that it gets to your intestines before releasing. That product is OregoBiotic. I have researched it pretty good and suggest you do to. Israel uses Oregano for almost everything, even snakes bites. My fungus has manifested itself in my sinus, ears, lungs and now I have jock itch. I have not had that since my youth when I played tournament tennis and sweated full time. This has told me that I have to get serious about my problem. I have fought cancer for some 10 years and now it's internal fungus. Oh well, something to do.

Hi ol Robert Henry,

I have some questions about your Aspergillus fungus. I have believe I have had candida for quite a few years but recently was in my sons apartment that had been flooded at one time and ended up with congested lungs and rattling cough. I ignored it for weeks and it got worse and worse and ended in the bronchitis. I'm over that now but seem to get the long congestion anytime I'm in his apartment even for a short time. Does this sound like the same symptoms that you have?

Replied by Bill

Hi ORH...I reckon that you're probably doing the right thing. It really surprises me when people say they have Candida or Aspergillus and that's all (ie no other infections). Little do these people realize that any serious systemic fungal infection -- be it candida, aspergillus or whatever -- has the major effect of lowering the immune system protection to virtually none! That's when all the parasites, bacteria, viruses, mycoplasma, spirochetes etc all have a free pass to also infect your body. This is the great mistake people make when they treat there own systemic candida problems. When you have a systemic fungal infection then you must ensure to take remedies and nutrients that will also destroy all the other pathogen species that are infecting your body as well. And to make this worse, as you know, candida as well as aspergillus are superb at hiding in biofilms which makes them untouchable by the immune system or any drug.

Doctors just do not understand diseases like Morgellon's or Lyme or Lupus. And if you have a fungal infection then chances are the doctor will, instead, eagerly find a single bad bacteria in their inadequate testing -- shout 'Eureka!!" -- then he will call your disease IBS or CFS or staph or esophigitis or Celiac Disease. They invent these fancy names because then the drug companies can invent yet another new and useless specific drug for that disease that wont cure you of anything -- just treats the symptoms -- but will give you plenty of dangerous side-effects to think about.

In diseases and problems like Autism, ASD, CFS, GERD, Digestion problems, Morgellon's Disease, Lyme Disease etc -- candida infections are also commonly and regularly associated. A regular doctor won't be able to help because they are only ever taught that candida is a trivial disease that can only ever infect the mouth or the vagina. Don't believe me? Then please check the current Merck manual or MIMs online for yourself and see if I'm wrong. The medical profession simply does not recognize candida as a common and serious systemic infection(that can infect the blood, tissues and organs -- including the brain!!).

When I explain to people that fungal infection urgently calls for additional remedies to also kill the parasites, viruses, mycoplasma, bacteria etc in their body, most are really surprised -- and that's because most people think like doctors I.e. One Disease = One Pathogen(very bad thinking!!). If you don't make sure to kill these other peripheral pathogen infections (as well as the systemic fungus) then you will most likely fail. Simple as that.

To address and kill all the associated pathogens in your body together with the candida you could perhaps start by using some other strong natural organic/wildcrafted remedies like these:

Senna tea -- this kills candida and a host of bad bacteria and parasites in your intestine only. Take it once every 3 days in the evening. Keeps you regular too.

Gum Turpentine -- Everyone knows this one -- it's a blood purifier -- kills fungus, bacteria, mycoplasma, viruses, parasites and then some. One of the best natural forms of gum turpentine is actually made in Georgia(Diamond G).

Marigold -- I'm currently growing and studying this impressive little plant now(aka Calendula officianalis). No bug, fly or mosquito will come anywhere near this plant. I put it on my outside house porch in the Philippines and can attest to its successful repellant effect. When taken internally, Marigold tea or tincture also has the same anti-pathogen effect as gum turpentine. This would also seem be a good one for Morgellon's or Lyme because of its strong repellant effect on bugs, mites and fleas.

Everyone already knows about the wide-acting pathogen kill effects of borax, lugol's iodine and hydrogen peroxide so there's no real need to mention those.

HI U BILL,,,,,,,, good to see you back posting again. My cancer has taken all my attention until this fungal flareup. To address my cancer via my immune system I used Beta 1,3D Glucan. Now I've dropped that and gone to my doctors homeopathic drops, colloidal silver, diatomaceous earth, activated charcoal, and my PEMF program. I have ordered the OregaBiotic...... NZ Colostrum, 400 billion probiotic w/ yogurt culture to make my GcFAM to build my immune system. I still have some gum turpentine left and will get on that. My fungus has manifest itself in my ears, yet my Ozone ear insufflation has not cured it. It only causes my ears to crust and peel, so the stuff is rampant. I started addressing my jock itch with ozone in my sauna suit. I think I have to cure it internally before my skin clears.

We may have a conspiracy going on because GcFAM is outlawed in the U S and you need N Z Colostrum to make it . You can search the net and almost all U S companies are out and say they may never get it again. You can still buy it from New Zealand. GcFAM will address 50 different dreaded diseases using your own immune system. There is a -------- in the wood pile.

Bill, I have more health toys than I can use. You remember my back and lymphedema? Well, I solved that problem by sleeping with my legs on a wedge and sitting on hi dollar foot vibrator. Then I get on a NUBAK to extend and pop my vertebra. Have to do that every day, but that keeps an 81 year old working in the garden.

While living on St Simmons Isl, Ga., hurricane Dorra hit in 1964 and we lived in a block duplex one block from the ocean. When we returned we did not have ocean water in our duplex, we had nasty marsh water. We moved everything out and I took a water hose to flush that stinking stuff out. I got a fungus and soon it had consumed me. Doctor gave me some pills and my body got clear as a baby's butt. This morning I called my natural doctor to give me those pills. The jock itch will cause you to do that.

Thank you very much for posting the information about the wildcrafted remedies. When I'm troubled by candida, I use oreganol oil drops in water and avoid sugar and carbohydrates that candida thrive on. It works like a charm. But, I plan to try your remedies, also.

Two other arrythmia suspects that seriously affect total health:

1. Dehydration-Very dangerous for health and happiness. I understand that toxins can be reabsorbed from the bladder back into the system. Electrolytes get out of whack!

2. Constipation-usually goes along with dehydration, lack of magnesium, poor diet, etc. Toxins find their way back into the system and can cause serious health problems. Think_aldehydes from candida. I eat lots of fruit to avoid this problem. (Fructose is not digested in the same way as glucose is. Eat the whole fruit, not just the juice.)

Super Strength P73 Oil of Oreganol 5 drops under tongue, 3 times per day- can drink water immediately after

10 drops in water or juice, 2 times per day

Also, rub oil around sinus region and nose, apply 1 drop on Qtip and apply in each nostril

Oregamax 3 caps, 3 times per day

Resvital 3 caps, 2 times per day

Black Seed oil gel caps 3 caps, 2 times per day

Greensflush 2 droppersful, 2 times per day

Avoid refined sugar, wheat, rye, wheat germ, chlorinated tap water, brewer's and baker's yeast.

OOPS,,,,,,,, BILL, guess I need to start working on my brain because I transported the GcMAF to GcFAM in my last post to you. A few years ago you could buy GcMAF in EUROPE, but their equivalent to our FDA raided the lab, destroyed and took everything. Now you have to make your own and the medical folks are outraged because methods to do this are all over the net. No one is to self medicate.

Glutathione, Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation

Posted by Robert Henry (Ten Mile, Tn) on 12/17/2016

HI U OLE PATOOTS DOIN,,,,,,,,, next life I plan to come back in bubble like the kid in the 1950's movie. That way you can't catch any of the bad stuff that abounds. In our last DNA test it was revealed that we both have in our bodies the Aspergillus Niger Fungus. This is black mold. Two years ago we had our HVAC duct work cleaned and fumigated along with the house with GSE per the Knoxville Mold folks directions. We sampled our HVAC air recently and the test proved negative.

So how did we acquire this fungus? My Tractor Driver suspects the mushroom compost that we use at the farm. That will be our next test in a week or so.

Our Integrative Doctor is addressing this problem with homeopathic drops. We are also using glutathione and H2O2 via our nebulizer. Of course we know that has not been double blind tested so we will just go with our ole buddy, Bill Munro's, inhalation advice.

I've just been diagnosed with ABPA .. A doctor recommended an antifungal ( Vfend or sporanox).and another doctor recommended cortisone/steroids for 4-5 months.

Can you please advise if any of you have taken such medications before? Does the cortisone make you tired all the time?

tThe antifungal vfend, started affecting my vision a little. Any experience on that?

Replied by Bill
(San Fernando, Philippines)

Hi Louby...Well if you're going to take Vfend may I wish you the best of luck because you're going to need it. It certainly wont cure your Aspergillosis problem because Vfend -- aka voricanozole -- contains 3 fluorine atoms per molecule of voracanozole which makes it very similar-acting to that other horrible and debilitating antibiotic drug called Cipro. Flourine is a poison that will, over time and without any doubt, bring down both your thyroid and your immune system. How is that result going to help against your fungl problem? And I'm not surprised your vision is affected by this drug. See all its side-effects here.

Cortizone/steroids will also seriously acidify your body. Any fungus or mold just loves acid bodies -- helps them to grow, dominate and spread rapidly throughout the body for sure.

If I were you I would seriously start investigating natural and effective fungal cures(without side-effects) like turpentine, alkalizing, lugol's iodine, undecylenic acid, hydrogen peroxide, borax, Gymnema sylvestre, colloidal silver, gallium nitrate, oregano, lavender oil etc before its too late. Here's one natural anti-fungal protocol that you could use.

And you can investigate all of the above natural remedies for fungus right here on EC. Up to you really.

Replied by Patsy

I took v-fend for 6 months for aspergillus. I developed an allergic reaction and had to stop taking it. I had blisters on my hands and feet for weeks before they stopped it. After stopping it, the blisters went away and have never come back. I think the aspergillus has come back, and I am not sure what they will do now. Whatever you do, do not take a steroid. That makes the aspergillus grow.

Hi. My name is Cindy- hope someone can help- seven months ago I found out I have nodules all over my lungs.

They went to do a biopsy and found the nodules had shrunk some what so they decided not to proceed. This was all done through University of Penn- supposedly the best lung center. Today I am still so sick- tired fatigue- lung pain- and now fighting with my insurance to pay for another CT scan to see if the nodules are growing again.

BETTER BUT NOT CURED Hello, I really need your help. Here's my story: For almost 10 years I have been suffering from fungal balls in my sinuses. Recently I have gotten urine test confirmation that it's aspergillus. I have tried everything I can think of and get no results. Recently I read your Q&A on Aspergillosis and started taking Niacin capsules, which help a lot. I also take cinnamon bark which helps. I spit up mucus night and day. Latest issue is my right eye is cloudy and blurred, so I'm pretty certain it has spread to my optic nerve. The mucus in my sinuses, (which I'm aware is actually an immune response protecting me from the fungus), comes as a post nasal drip, not through my nose. It collects in my throat and makes me miserable at night too. I'm pretty sure it's in my sphenoid sinuses, and according to the web articles I've read surgery is the only option. I'm not too keen on doctors. Not only that, but I think surgery is very dangerous due to possible cranial bleeding, and I also don't think it is a permanent solution, since the fungus is all through my system by now and will only come back somewhere else. I'm a healthy (otherwise) 72 year old female and take no medication of any kind. I use only natural methods. I may have to resort to voriconazole, as I read that this drug is effective against this. However, I wish I could find something to get rid of it directly through my sinuses instead of through my stomach. Thank you for anything you can tell me about this. God bless you.

I had the same problem plus sinus polyps. I now use a NeilMed rinse bottle with distilled water and 1/4 tsp real salt. I put 8 drops of oregano oil, 8 drops of tea tree oil, 20 drops of myrrh oil, and 40 drops of frankincense oil in a glass bottle. I started using one drop from this bottle put into my NeilMed bottle of salt water. I am up to 2 drops or 3 drops now. I shake it up for 15 seconds before each use. It stings a little, but that shows it is working. My polyps have shrunk and I no longer have a constant drip down the back of my throat or even have mucus when I hold my head upside down to drain my sinuses under my cheeks.

Tea tree oil, or peroxide in a essential oil diffuser for sinuses. Alternated with a good probiotic made into a nasal spray can help. Good luck!

I am sorry to hear of your distress and will pray for you. I am recovering from Mycotoxicosis (due to Aspergillus and Stachybotrys), of which Aspergillosis is but one symptom, as mold toxicity can be systemic. Mycotoxicosis protocol from environmental doctors usually includes the following items:

1) Colloidal Silver Nasal Spray: as directed on bottle (Mesosilver is best)

2) Libertè plain kefir: 6-8 oz day (grocery store item, better than any expensive probiotic)

3) Seaweed Chips: 1 pack (grocery store/Costco, contain fucoidan and alginate, which remove toxins from body even more effectively than activated charcoals, incl. Bamboo)

4) regular bowel movements are necessary. If you have constipation, Nature's Way Magnesium Complex: 2 500 mg caps day ( Drink at least 8 8-oz glasses of filtered water daily to aid flushing.

5) Epsom Salt baths several times a week: 20 mn soak in hot bath with 1-2 cups Epsom Salt, and 6-12 drops of an antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial essential oil, such as: thyme, oregano, tea tree, Nature's Shield (blend of cinnamon, clove, etc).

6) Herbal teas are excellent: 3 cups a day, brewed strong 5+ mn. Pau d'Arco (add dried orange peel for flavor), Licorice, frozen grated ginger root, green tea, chammomile, milk thistle (whole plant) steeped with local, raw honey as all medicinal constituents are not water soluble. Do not use heat-processed, commercial honey.

7) Infrared Sauna therapy, in small increasing increments as health improves (start with only 5-10 mn, with personal assistance, as it may make you feel dizzy). My doctor wrote a prescription for it, some spas have this type sauna, or portable units can be purchased. Rehydrate and rest following this.

8) follow a "Candida diet" to stop feeding the fungal infection. There's plenty info "out there" on this, but in a nutshell. YES to: healthy proteins like fish, turkey, chicken, walnuts (store nuts in fridge); whole grains, lots of garlic: 1 clove a day plenty of onions. fresh pineapple, berries, veggies, spices such as Turmeric. My doctor told me no to milk, cheese and ice cream until I felt better, but yes to butter and soured dairy such as plain kefir & yogurt, cottage cheese. Avoid sugar, starchy foods, white flour, gluten, yeast, coffee, peanuts, cashews, pistachios, mushrooms, beer.

9) Vitamin and herbal supplements are recommended by all the specialist doctors in varied types and amounts, an overwhelming list which I ended up carefully narrowing down. But basically Vit C, D, Zinc, B-Complex, Multi (ie: Women's One by Rainbow Light), A, E, Fish oil, Oregano oil, Goldenseal, Lysine, Kyolic Candida Cleanse, pure aloe vera juice- you can make it into a tasty drink (below).

The first three I buy in powdered form (from and make a jug of healthy, sweet-tart drink: 2 tsp C, 3 tsp D-Mannose, 1 tsp Zinc, a Big spoonful honey,
All melted with a bit of hot water. Add 1 quart any fruit juice, 1 quart water or plain aloe juice, 1 dropper vanilla stevia, 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar, 4 drops Lugol's iodine (J.Crow), ginger sometimes (powder or grated frozen). I drink 1 pint a day.

This is not medical advice, but only that which I have gathered- some from physicians, some from herbalists, etc. I tried and found these things to be helpful- thanks be to God. If your condition is severe, there is a highly qualified practioner in Scottsdale, Arizona who may help: Dr. Dean Silver.

This is all I can think of at the moment, but you, dear lady suffering from Aspergillosis sinal infection, can email me at ThistleBee (at)

I don't check this often, so it may take a few days. God bless you.

Aspergillosis: I had a health scan and what has remedied the moldies is oil of oregano. Fungus is very bad and worse than is reported, worldwide.

I am an otherwise healthy 62 y/o female who was diagnosed with ABPA in Oct. 2014 after bronchoscopy. I took steroids (prednisone and advair) and antihistamines for two months. Rather than take antifungals, I began doing breathing treatments of 4 drops oil of oregano (Oreganol) purchased at Whole Foods, in 1/2 cup filtered water. I brought it to high enough temp for it to vaporize as I breathed it for 5-10 minutes two times a day. If I would forget to do breathing treatment the icky fungus tasting phelm would return. I did this for several weeks. Then as mentioned above, I weaned myself from other meds over two month period. After 4 months free of symptoms I am just now experiencing my first flair and am trying to get by with 10mg of prednisone/day and one zyrtec along with oil of oregano breathing tx. Am also using neti pot for sinuses to keep them clear.

Does anyone have any other suggestions for a flair. I want to get over it with as little meds as possible. BTW: My IgE went to 3000 and is now hovering 1200-1300. Any trick to getting it to drop lower? Am going to start taking the wheat grass, garlic, astragulas & vit D mentioned above. Thanks to previous messages as all info is helpful to this newbie.

From being a fit person at the age of 58, I too have been diagnosed with Aspergillisos recently and I am finding it really hard to cope with it. There are days when I feel great and then there's days when I am out of breath and cannot function. I have not been in to work since June 2015 due to this condition and few other issues. Any advise in how to cope with this condition would help.

I have been diagnosed with PD, and know it was from a mold exposure 10 yrs ago in my home, which made me very sick at the time. I've had a horrible alcohol smell in my nose for almost the same amount of time, along with the symptoms of PD, which are pretty rough, 15-20/day.

I just started taking 230 mg. of extract Oregano oil in capsules, certified organic, 4 caps/day and already see changes after a few days, for the good, less meds due to less tremors and rigidity. Thanks for the thoughts on vaporizing it, I couldn't figure out why I was so short of breath from walking across a room, now I know!

Turmeric with curcumin 1000mg once a day make sure non GMO, no fillers or additives. Grapefruit seed extract and baking soda baths you will be shocked at what comes out of your bath. hope I helped, it helps me.

re: Chronic Asthma & Aspergillosis.

I have been suddenly left completely disabled for the last two years. Sudden onset of respiratory illness and lethargy. I'm 35 and have been unable to do even the basic of personal daily routines. I used to ride all terain 20 miles a day up north. After two years of relying on modern medicine and countless hospital stays, I have decided not to die from a pescki fungus or anything else. So I have begun taking matters in my own hands and will try anything that makes sense. I currently began double dose of DHEA for natural precursor to antinflammatory, 7 oranges a day, 2xday apple cider vinegar, copper supplement,probiotic yogurt, and 4 times daily supplement. After 3days my neighbor comment that I have color for the first time. I also have been able to get out of bed. I am going to try the peroxide and apple cider vinegar in my nebulizer and report back. I believe it will work. Make an uncomfortable environment for bacteria, kill it, get it out, and keep it out! All this without dying from side effects of prednisone, advair, and numerous others.

Thanks for your posts! Many prayers for all of you.

Eight years ago I was diagnosed with Pulminary apsirgillosis. It was a severe case and my physician precribed prednisone for life. I took the prednisone for two weeks, after careful research I have cured the nasty fungus. I now breathe easy, workout daily and have a normal life. The secret to my success was through natural essential oils and diet. I tried many different types of oils and natural supliments for a lot of years and finally found the ones tha worked the best. I would love to share it with everyone. Oregano, breathe and ongaurd along with proper diet was the solution.

Hey read your post. My mom was diagnosed with aspergillius. They put her on vorcanizole. Any information about the way you are doing your treatment would be great. I pray someone will have a better alternative than this poision she's on.

Hello Bettye;

Re...aspergilla's treatment alternatives.

I googled "aspergilla treatment colloidal silver" and found five or six interesting articles related.

One article discussed the sufferer's infection in ears and sinus and how he/she used CS and sea salt. Cured the problem apparently...says the post.

Replied by Alice

This information is for Bettye, whose Mom is on voriconazole for Aspergillus. Voriconazole is very toxic, when taken orally or intravenously. However, some doctors in Europe have been giving this drug to Aspergillosis patients via inhalation, at a much lower dose, with no adverse effects. The idea behind this treatment is that when a patient inhales voriconazole, the target tissue (lungs) get much higher saturation with much lower dose than when the patient takes the drug orally or intravenously. When the drug gets into the bloodstream eventually, it won't cause as much harm, because of the lower dose. Here is the link to the article which describes the treatment, dosages, etc.

For Aspergillosis:

Take Turmeric. I use 4000mg daily taken 2x a day. I use one that is time released. My IGE dropped almost 3000 points over 1 1/2 years thanks to Turmeric.

I also use a salt pipe. Salt has been shown to inhibit the growth of aspergillus and you will see immediate results. I have had ABPA for 8 years. The drugs didn't help. I'm doing fine now. Best to you!

I was diagnosed with ABPA (Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis) in 2008 after coughing for 2 years. I would like to share what I have learned. My IGE went to 4400 and it was difficult to breathe. I finally agreed to use iatraconazol and prednisone. The IGE only dropped into the lower 2000's despite taking the drugs for about 6 months. Breathing was still difficult. At this point in October of 2012 I turned to Turmeric. I took a brand with curcumin phytosomes. I took 8 capsules a day / that's 2000 mg twice a day. Within a few weeks my breathing seemed less difficult but I did not want to jump to conclusions. I kept taking the Turmeric for 6 weeks then had another IGE test. It had dropped almost 1000 points. I kept taking it and the IGE kept decreasing. After about 11/2 years in 2014 it was finally down to 258. It stayed there for 2 years. I dropped the amount taken to 4 capsules or 1000 mg twice a day. In May of 2016 my IGE was at 328. I will never stop taking the Turmeric. When I skip it for a few days I feel the labored breathing return. I recently read an article that salt slowed the growth of aspergillus. I also bought a therapeutic Salt Pipe. I breathe in and out through the the pipe for 10 minutes a day.

Perhaps these suggestions will help someone else.
