I have not been diagnosed with Bronchiolitis, however have suffered for a long while with the symptoms. Due to circumstances of our family being victimized by a crime, beginning in 2009, I was forced to live in a dwelling for two years that was HEAVILY mold infested; Black mold among others. During this time I began suffering with many symptoms including, joint pain, skin lesions, difficulty breathing, sores in my nose, wheezing, recurrent bacterial blepharitis, scalp sores, sinus infections, excess mucous production, post-nasal drip, trouble walking, severe brain fog, under eye aging, irritability, recurrent UTI's, bladder pain and spasms, fatigue, excessive sleepiness, etc. I suspect I also developed a fungal infection in my sinuses and lungs, however the symptoms were very similar to those you mentioned. Doctor visits resulted in prescriptions for sinus allergies, antibiotics, pain meds, muscle relaxers, depression meds, etc. none of which helped. I felt like no doctor was listening to me when I described all of the symptoms and suggested they could be related to aflatoxin exposure combined with a family trauma that caused unbelievable stress, zapping my immune system.
I have spent the last 11 years researching, and trying to detox my body using holistic/natural methods and products. It has been a long and arduous process, however I have learned a great deal and am thankful that my eyes have been opened to the problems with conventional medicine. I experienced good success with most symptoms, however I was never able to stop the wheeze or the nose sores.
I then stumbled onto Bill Munro's HP inhalation method here on Earth Clinic. I tried that method, but quickly realized I needed a different delivery mode, and began nebulization.
I first began nebulizing 3% Food Grade HP diluted 50% with distilled water. After more research, I quickly added 1 drop of Lugol's Iodine to the nebulization cup along with my 3% Food Grade HP, diluted with 50% distilled water.
I CANNOT TELL YOU THE RELIEF I HAVE EXPERIENCED. I can try to put it into words here, but my words will not do the results justice. Within a week I started noticing that my lungs were clearing, in a manner that seemed like the clearing was starting from the bottom working its way up. Over the next couple of months, that process continued, again from the bottom up.
First, my lungs began to clear, then my throat (which always felt like it was covered in goop from post nasal drip), then my sinuses, then my nose congestion began to clear. Along with these results came an increase in energy, and clarity of mind that I had not experienced in a number of years. The wheeze has not returned, and I feel like my body is oxygenated more than it has been in years. The improvement in my overall health has been astounding.
I hope anyone who tries this method gets the same or better results than I have. Aren't we all sick and tired of being sick and tired?
The results have been amazing!
Do your homework on a spore-forming bacteria called Bacillus Thuringiensis. There is quite a lot of research on this organism. Here is one study entitled:
Antifungal activities of Bacillus thuringiensis isolates on barley and cucumber powdery mildews
Hi, I am an intuitive researcher. For mold poisoning symptoms:
Try this, take a small amount (tsp or so) white vinegar (not apple) and swirl in a pure copper cup for one minute just before bed, then 5 min later take a spoonful of yogurt (I like Triple Zero by Oikos brand with no sugar) or have a cup of roasted dandelion tea etc. to soothe your esophagus.
If no copper cup is available to you, you can use a piece of washed copper pure wire and stir the vinegar in a glass.
By only stirring for one minute, I find the toxicity to be near zero. In the mornings, I take natural Bob's Red Mill baking soda (not arm and hammer) between 1/4-1/2 tsp in a large glass of water to help balance out any excess acidity.
I have found this to be an amazing remedy. Not a cure all, many supporting therapies are still needed. You'll have to play around with this and cycle on off as needed. Anything can be overdone.
What ozone machine do you use and take with you? Also, can you provide a link to this sprayer? Thanks!
Thank you for your thorough write-up of all this. I'm pretty new to mold illness and have much to learn but I've never heard of the work of Dr. Yu, so thanks for sharing. Curious how long it took you to get well on this protocol?
Milk thistle with artichoke is the best! Also, add artichokes to dark green leafy salads. They scrub the liver clean! Green tea, red clover tea, pau d'arco are all good. Red clover cleans the blood.
Oregano Oil, Garlic
Please help. I looked him up but can't find anything of his treatments for mold. Only discussions?
U can get mold foggers for apt. 1 for every 100 ft company biocide like bug foggers
While you are looking for a remedy for your spinal issue that is causing you significant pain, it may be worth discussing the use of a TENS unit with your doctor or medical care professional for the purpose of pain management until an adequate repair of your spine has been achieved by whatever remedies you attempt for spinal repair. Something like borax can take up to 3 or 4 months to reach its maximum potential for pain relief in arthritis according to Dr. Rex Newnham who founded the use of borax/boron as a potential treatment for some forms of arthritis.
I recently wrote about using TENS as a non invasive, non addictive and inexpensive approach to pain management here :
Best of luck with getting relief from your back pain, as it can make daily life miserable, I know from experience!
This has been a living hell. I wish Ted was still here!! I'm going to start Borax to see if it can help. I'm assuming that Borax is not only good for fungal issues, but also bacterial, parasites, etc...
I used three other things that were suggested to me by my doctor. I think they are better than Cholestyramine, for me anyway because it seemed to make me feel better faster.
I got the big bottle of Great Plains, Bentonite Detox and G.I. Detox Bio-botanical research. I also took organic activated coconut charcoal. The longer the exposure to black mold the longer it may take for people to get well. My doctor told me it could take up to five years, that seems unbelievable. Most of the symptoms went away within few months to a year. However, some did not and it took much longer. Mold illness is very complex and it is good to get with a mold literate doctor because mold can causes body systems/processes to be disrupted that needs to be fixed. It is complicated and working with an expert helps in the detox program and they are able to suggest supplements to help the body function better. Cholestyramine is not a scam, it was the best that they had at that time.

Possible your stem cells put your immune system on high alert. As far as Ted, enjoy all the work he has put into this site and all the people that commented on how much it changed their lives. He is not available any longer to help others.
Borax tells you many things. Calcium out of balance, fungal issues, hormone out of balance and many other things. Borax releases calcium out of soft tissues. Calcium in soft tissues creates misery. Chanca piedra helps break stones up as they come out of soft tissue and I would use it daily. Xylitol also does wonders for mouth issues Go low dose and slow to keep misery from overwhelming you. Blessings, Charity
Fear is a door and produces cortisol problems....
I was very sick in 2005 from mold, arsenic and nickel. I got 70% well, but after doing my own stem cells in Dec of 2019, I got very sick 4 months later. I've lost 30 lbs of muscle with severe spinal pain and neurological issues. I've been terrified its invasive fungus but all docs say no.
I've been to Klinghardt and Simon Yu. I've spent 75,000 with no real improvement from docs. I soaked my mouth guard in Borax a few days ago and after wearing it yesterday, I feel way better. I'm wanting to go to Ted's clinic in Thailand for treatment but don't have contact info. Any help or advice is appreciated so much!!!
I went to Raj Patel in the early/mid 1990s after he bought my Doctor's holistic practice. At that time I was very very ill with massive chemical exposure, EBV, cytomegalovirus, HHV6, jaundice, hepatitis and list goes on. was on SSDI for over 6 years.
Maybe he's changed. He was of zero help to me. Minimized my symptoms. Was hardly what I would call wholistic at time. I lost my SSDI benefits because his letter did not correctly diagnose/describe my health issues.
I also went to Dr. Christine Greene before she switched from conventional medicine to becoming one of the most expensive functional medicine docs not accepting insurance.
I have the best functional medicine doc (Dr. Mary Raleigh) in Irvine, CA (S. CA). And one of the few who accepts original Medicare, knows how to navigate their system legitimately to get all sorts of wholistic solutions covered and cutting edge tests. Plus she is kind, compassionate, funny, and deeply cares about her patients.
Just my humble opinion from experience. Thx everyone great input!
Can you please give instructions on how to make this lamp with the thieves oil???? I want to try this, we are desperate.
Janet's Mold Exposure Remedies
Repeating the mold remedies.
Living in mold, working in mold.
Wildly different. Varied. Although not always. The shape changer qualities of this illness. It is nearly supernatural.
- Joints ache
- Vision blurry
- Mood swings
- Bacterial vaginosis
- Urinary tract, blockage, infections
- Broken nails
- Hair loss
- Mental disorders
- Sleep too much
- Sleep not enough
- Disrupted sleep
- Sleep, yet feeling exhausted
- Ear pressure
- Swollen lymph
- No appetite
- Weight, cannot lose it, cannot normalize it
- Skewered thinking
- Circular thinking
- Abnormal mind, devolving brain function
- Losing speech
- Reaching for words
- Abnormal impact from the slightest changes
- Sensitive to environmental toxins
- Food allergies and sensitivities
- Cannot breathe
- Coughing, lots of phlegm, or a dry cough
- Gut issues, 100s of them
This list can include just about anything, not always all the things. They can shift. Be gone and reoccur. So hard to nail down.
Ted's best instant relief. Ammonia spray. Ammonia in water. If you are afraid or unfamiliar with it. It is worth an experiment. Testing his ratios on the inside of the arm. 5% ammonia to 95% borax water. Apply a few dabs to inside wrist possibly.
If you want to reduce ammonia in the body, a quick fix is butyric acid. This remedy seems scary, but...
Us older people remember Grandma stripping wax off floors with ammonia. It cleans, it sanitizes. In correct amounts it heals. It does not smell great. But it dries scentless. The remedies are listed in Ted's Mold chapter.
Thoughts on removing or fixing reoccurent issues. Topically.
Lotion, buy a nice organic lotion. Add some to a jar, reduce a few drop of ammonia, I stick to 5%. Sometimes less. Add 1/4 tsp sodium molybdate. To 2 oz of lotion. 1/8 tsp magnesium oil, optional. 200mcg of selenium yeast. Apply to inside wrist. Or fingernails to test. If it is a mold derived issue you will see improvement. These minerals get depleted so fast in mold exposures.
Deirdre's video, for colloidal silver inhalation for lungs, a great tool, as is teds ammonia spray.
Emulsifying out some toxins,
Relief for genital mold issues. Milk of Magnesia, in a jar for rashes applied after wiping. I add a little castor oil. Shake.
Ted's topical wipe, 1/2 water, 1/2 apple cider vinegar. 2 capfuls of hydrogen peroxide. Applied.
Emulsifying out anything, teeth, skin, baking soda paste, applied, let dry, rinse.
Bentonite clay. Wet to sticky mud texture. Apply, dry with hair dryer. Rinse. 3x.
What my eternal question is, what opens this door, this candida and mold problem?? Grandma did not have these issues. Rarely.
We are all inundated with all this mystery. If not mold. Autoimmune disease, PCOS, endometriosis, infertility, depression, heart disease, Parkinson's, myriads of digestion problems, food allergies, candida. 1000s of rare problems have become commonplace, new ones emerging daily.
Stress blamed for all the inexplicables.
Observationally, low vitamin D in mothers seems a huge factor.
Dr Lonsdale's work with thiamine points to a great deal having to do with it also.
Vaccinations, the ingredients adjuvents are poisons, aluminum, DNA not our own, derivatives of animals, mercury. Injecting them, where we have no way process them out. Through digestion there is a hope our bodies will recognize toxins and pass them out. With injection there is no process. The vitamin K shot at birth, offers nothing yet opens the tight weave of the blood brain barrier to invite more toxic mess beyond this natural defence. Being synthetic k make it crazy dangerous.
Silver tooth fillings
Foods modified to destroy farm pests, insects. Eaten by us
Glyphosates sprayed on crops, to dessicated them uniformly, brings insecticide right to your gut.

Not all the answers, but we have to be able to get on our feet to recover or take the steps that are required to recover.
Hi Becky...The reason people get thyroid nodules is usually because selenium as well as iodine is deficient in their diet. The selenium is used to form protective enzymatic selenoproteins in the thyroid which helps to protect the thyroid from oxidative damage during the production of the thyroid hormones in the thyroid cell.
The thyroid cell converts thyroglobulins(containing iodine) into T3 ad T4. An aftermath of this reaction is that excess hydrogen peroxide - a waste oxidant product - is produced in the thyroid cell which needs to be neutralized or qenched to prevent oxadative damage. If there is not enough selenium in the body then then there will be a shortage of glutathione peroxidase(GP) in the cell. GP is a essential and important anti-oxidant enzyme that helps to protect the thyroid cell from oxidative damage. If the thyroid cell does not have enough GP then hydrogen peroxide builds up to excessive levels in the cell, eventually attacking the cell itself as well as changing and altering the thyroglubulin protein and altering its protein structure through oxidative action. The body's antibodies then identify these oxidized and altered thyrglobulin proteins as the non-host enemy which is what eventually culminates in the formation of a thyroid nodule. Read the research here:
Selenoproteins of the thyroid gland
To heal your nodules you should ensure that you take the full Iodine Protocol together with all the companion nutrients in the protocol(including selenium). It might also be better for you if you supplement only the companion nutrients(with no lugol's iodine) for a week or two on their own until your body has sufficient selenium and then restart the lugol's iodine again afterwards.
Acidosis will also inhibit the absorption of iodine because in an acid environment the transfer of nutrients and waste in and out of cells via concentration gradients will be disturbed and inefficient. To remedy that problem you can take Ted's Sodium Bicarbonate(20 Mule Team brand is fine) + half a glass of water two or three times a day an hour after a meal or outside mealtimes. This will alkalize the blood. You should also take Ted's lemon or lime + Sodium Bicarbonate + water to alkalize the cellular environment. Both of these alkalizing protocols can be found here.
I have systemic Candida. Have now learned the cause is acidosis. When I did the Iodine, my Thyroid swelled and I had hair loss. I do have two nodules.
Hi Epeach...In answer to your question, you should take the anti-candida protocol until you feel that you are cured (i.e. all symptoms gone). I'm sorry to give you such a vague answer but your healing rate ultimately depends on the extent of your infection(remember that systemic candida can infect any and every tissue or organ in you body -- even your brain) and will also depend on how closely you follow the protocol and diet.
And when you think that you are cured, you also have the option of getting a candida antigen test for further confirmation. Just request this blood test from your doctor. Unlike the candida stool check, the antigen test is far more accurate.
All those years ago when I took the protocol for my own candida issues I felt normal or cured after about 6 months of taking the protocol. I then continued the protocol for another 6 months. Why? Because candida can go into hibernation and hide in your body for long periods to protect itself and then suddenly reappear. I explain all this in my book, Candida Killing So Sweetly.
As an aside, I'm currently researching flavonoids at the moment. Both resveratrol and quercitin are strong anti-microbials(anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial) and also have some impressive research to back this up.
There are also other products that I've been researching -- such as LB Core Protocol(Klaire Labs) and Interfase Plus(Klaire Labs). LB Core Protocol is John Buhner's Lyme protocol in a single convenient pill and I have read about several people who have used this pill as part of their protocol to successfully cure their Lyme disease.
I am particularly impressed with LB Core Protocol because it was specifically designed to attack spirochete bacteria as well as remove babesia(protozoan parasite) and bartonella co-infections -- which are all hard to defeat. From an anti-pathogen point of view, this product will do much more. It contains the following: Japanese Knotweed, Resveratrol, Cat's Claw, Dandeleion Root, Angiographis, Sarsparella root.
Interfase Plus is also quite impressive. It's purpose is to destroy any and all biofilms. It contains enzymes like cellulase, hemicellulase, chitinase and also contains protease(dissolves fibrin) as well as EDTA. So this formula will not only dissolve the fibrin of biofilms, it will also dissolve the fungal outer cell walls made of chitin -- it helps the immune system to kill fungus in other words. As well, this formula contains EDTA which is a heavy metal chelator which will automatically remove any trapped heavy metals released from the dissolved biolfilms. Interfase Plus is expensive but, if you can afford it, you could also use this in your anti-candida protocol because it works so well.
From a general health point of view, I've also been researching the beneficial health effects of green coffee beans (GCB). GCB contains more flavonoids than any other plant in the world. In a piece of research that I've recently read, GCB has about 1000 flavonoids. Flavinoids are extremely important for the body because they act as anti-oxidants and also act as co-enzymes in many essential metabolic processes in the body. And if you add GCB to hot water, you get a further 300 extra flavonoids for even more benefit. I'm in the process of finding a cheap source of green coffee bean in the Philippines. I'll probably buy the local coffee bean type known as robusta which is normally sold as their Benguet, Sagada or Barako coffee bean. All coffee is grown organically in the Philippines and it's quite cheap. I'm a coffee lover of long standing so the way that I will supplement and test the effects of GCB is by brewing my normal Barako roasted, ground coffee with a teaspoon or tablespoon of the ground green bean (once a day). I'll report my findings here when I can.
A heartfelt thanks for your great book and ongoing wisdom. I just recently bought your book and am in the process of accumulating all of the suggested remedies. In the meantime, the VCO and the iodine are working wonders. Am in my late 60ies and have had systemic candida for most of my life, but never hoped to get rid of it until I found this web site and your book. I cannot believe the relief already though - minimal sugar cravings after feeling for years like they owned me. Weight loss is significant too. Brain fog lifting and less headaches. Thank you sincerely.
Thank you so much for your response. I appreciate you taking the time to help me in my quest for good health.
I have followed the Iodine protocol with the companion nutrients as per your advice, from the beginning. That is why I was asking about increasing the dose. Or maybe, it will just take longer than I expected? I do not ingest dairy due to intolerance. I ordered the chanca piedra because I thought the calcium from other food I eat may not be dispersed properly? I think I read from one of your previous posts, although, I cannot quote, about calcium blocking something in the thyroid?
As for the quercetin and resveratrol, I will order them today. How long do I take these items? I will order 1 bottle of each until I hear from you.
Again, I am flattered that you responded, I really was not expecting it. You have made a huge impact on my health (and others, as well) and there are no words for how grateful I am. I have resorted to using EC exclusively to improve my health since I realized all of the medications the doctor has prescribed for me has done nothing but harm.
The Iodine protocol that is recommended for hypothyroid conditions is shown here. This protocol doesn't involve taking just Lugol's Iodine(LI) alone. For this protocol to work properly, you must also insure that you take all the companion nutrients as well. That means that you should also take the following nutrients at the recommended dosages: Vitamin C, Zinc, Magnesium, Selenium, Vitamin B2/B3(ATP cofactors) and sea salt. If you don't take these vital companion nutrients when you are supplementing LI then you may well continue having thyroid problems because all these companion nutrients play vital roles as anti-oxidants and co-enzymes in important thyroid process such as absorption of iodine from intestines into the blood, conversion and storage of iodine in the thyroid, generation and production of T3 and T4 in the thyroid etc. You should also reduce dairy in your diet. Excess calcium in the diet inhibits proper iodine absorption into the body.
What might also help your anti-candida protocol would be to add two well-known flavonoids to your regimen. From recent research, these two flavonoids work synergistically together with your immune system to help kill bacteria, viruses, and fungus: quercetin and resveratrol. Supplement both these flavonoids at the recommended dosage twice a day in the morning and evening with meals. And only buy resveratrol that is derived from Japanese Knotweed(e.g. from Gaia Herbs). Do not buy resveratrol that is derived from wine. Resveratrol derived from Japanese Knotweed contains much higher amounts of resveratrol than resveratrol derived from wine.
For information, here is an article on the many amazing benefits of resveratrol:
Dear Bill from the Phillipines,
I pray that you are able to answer my question. Before posting, I researched this website at length. I have read everything I can find from you on these topics. I highly respect your knowledge and dedication to your own health and the health of others.
I began the Lugol's protocol a little over a year ago. I was suffering with symptoms of Hypothyroidism. I was on an anti-depressant which I stopped shortly after beginning the protocol. I also have included Borax, alkalizing, and ACV, daily.
In the past year, I realized I was exposed to mold at my workplace. I worked there 8 years. I kept reporting sightings and none were addressed and at the time I had no idea I was suffering because of it. I was able to diagnose myself from reading the symptoms you wrote about. I am currently not working due to a back injury that happened while at work. (a blessing in disguise?) I am not taking any prescriptions.
My question is, although, I have seen dramatic results and I am not completely cured, should I up my dose of Lugol's? Occasionally, I will add a few more drops of 2 percent. I include other supplements and remedies I see in your posts and other's, also. I use turpentine, oregano essential oil, cilantro, and thyme essential oil, occasionally..other than the turpentine, I am not aware of how much and how long I should use these remedies. I just ordered chanca piedra and a probiotic and I am waiting for them to come in. I wanted to give myself a year on the Lugol's before I posted this question. If I ever miss my dose, my neck will throb. So, I know my thyroid isn't completely healed.
I have reported my successes here on EC, so far. But, I am still not completely healthy. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
God bless you and keep you!
How did it work out for you? Did you find a solution?
I wanted to recommend to you Food grade Hydrogen Peroxide, 35%.
It will eliminate EVERYTHING that is wrong in your body, but also protect the good cells. It MUST be diluted properly however before use externally or internally.
You only take 1-2 drops of 25% to an entire glass of water twice a day. It has changed my life.
I really appreciated your post. I wonder if you would mind sharing your symptoms in detail and how long it took to heal. Are you still healing? Also, would you mind indicating how much of each ingredient you put in your water and what kind of water?
I use some of these ingredients, as well, and am still struggling. I use 1 tsp. borax, 1 tsp. baking soda, and 1 tsp. sea salt in 2 liters of tap water. I add fresh squeezed lemon juice to each glass I pour. I try to drink the entire 2 liter in a day. I was using the peroxide inhalation method and kept getting a terrible sore throat. I will probably return to it and just lower the percentage.
Thank you in advance for your reply!
Thank you for this wealth of insight!
2 years ago, I broke out on my face as I was cleaning a mold leak under the sink! The infection(fungus) spread wherever it landed, my health was depleted, I felt chronic fatigue all the time...it was horrific and depressing! I tried 3 different anti-biotics, a medicine for scabies(because I was desperate for anything to work! They all worked slightly but it would come back with a vengeance! I've moved from that terrible place and learned a lot here on Earth Clinic, and I just want to thank every single one of you that share in your willingness to trust that nature does have it down, we just have to figure out the dosage and moderation will always create lasting changes of good health.
I drink water with peroxide, borax, iodine sea salt, lemon juice honey, 16 oz a day. I've learned to trust my inner/intuitive knowing and my body tells me if I get it wrong (but amazingly, that's a rarity)- I put 1/2 - 3/4 capful of apple cider vinegar in my 92.6 lb 6 year golden retriever pitmix dog's food:) we are happy and healthy and I thank God, Mother Nature-and the good-intentioned people that take the time to share in something that works!! This is a much-welcomed deed to humanity:)
PS- A special thank you to Dr. Ted too!
I have been leasing an 1890's model home for five years that is crawling with mold. Aspergillis, cladosporium, penicillium and surely black mold. I'm very sick, I feel like I'm dying. I have five children who are also sick. The landlord isn't doing anything to remediate and we are scrambling to get out as soon as possible. I've read everyone's comments here and I'm looking forward to treatments, any advice on what works best for children?
Oxiclean contains both sodium carbonate (soda ash) & sodium percarbonate. Sodium carbonate, when mixed with hydrogen peroxide (such as 30 or 35% undergoes a chemical reaction where crystals form resulting in another white powder; thus turning sodium carbonate into sodium percarbonate. I had learned that after the August 2016 flood that the Red Cross gave 10,000 gallons of the liquid "tech" strength H2O2 (30%) to flood victims to treat their flooded (raw sewage water, petroleum fuels, insecticides, only God knows what else) to kill black mold. Hydrogen peroxide at 30-35%, kills ANYTHING organic (thus covering EVERYTHING Lysol kills). Upon ordering 50% via Amazon from Wintersun Chemicals for the first time, I paid $100.00 ($2.00/lb.) and they offered the product in both uncoated and coated (against humidity). I ordered the coated product in which every granule was a small coated sphere. It is a little harder to dissovle in hot water, but the fact that this is the powdered form of H2O2 (+ a little Soda Ash, aka sodium carbonate) + coated resulted in the best of both worlds. Liquid H2O2, unstabilized, like a 2L of Coke loses it's carbonation as the H2O2 loses it's hydrogen and oxygen gas. BUT in the coated formulation; as long as stored indoors (I keep mine in sealed plastic containers in my freezer); I still have full strength H2O2 when mixed with water over a year later. Sodium alone is a metal. I see no sodium in my sodium percarbonate. Anyone with experience can tell ya that if applied properly on the interior walls after a flood, the before/after (in my case I took samples before/after & using petri dishes with Agar, allowed the samples to grow for 24-48 hours; then transferring the sample to make a wet microscope slide mount along with cotton blue to stain black mold's chitin translucent walls proved that the mold was gone. Yes I had to order a microscope capable of 1000x magnification and used oil immersion lens to compliment the image quality. Most importantly was the results of not being able to grow any black mold after treatment. H2O2 is used in hospitals, can be used in your laundry, contains no dangerous chlorine-based chemicals.
Clorox is a joke with 8.5% sodium hypochlorite which does kill the mold on pourous wood wall stud surfaces it comes into contact with. The problem is that the active ingredient is much lighter than water; think of it like alcohol in that it evaporates off; leaving 91.5% water by volume on the wood. Here in south Louisiana, the averagy humidity levels rarely drop below 90%; therefore you just fed the mold below the surface of the treated area with the applied remaining 91.5% water. Clorox's chlorine-based bleach with sodium hypochlorite is MUCH cheaper to manufacture & without a word from Clorox as to the truth of their mold-feeding product; they have strategically-located warehouses across the country for the sole purpose of bulk-storage of their toxic chlorine product. There are many warehouses along the gulf coast ready to flood the market with free Clorox. The public accepts this as monkey see; monkey do. I was VERY concerned after FEMA's mold inspector left without even talking to me nor taking any pictures NOR samples.
Sadly, in Louisiana in order to have a mold license; one must first have a termite license as a prerequisite. So often the mold contractor works as a subcontractor for the termite inspector. Yes he has undergone minimal required training. Same with Louisiana Restore's Damage Assessor as well as my Catholic Charities Damage Assessor. I have enough problems withe a home built in 1978; asbestos in the ceiling popcorn, in the exterior gybsum wallboard, the flooring adhesive used over the 2000 sq. ft. slab, that deposited by 6'2" interior flood water level above the interior concrete slab, the HVAC ducts, the asbestos contained in the interior USG gypsum wallboard sheathing, mold in it all including the concrete foundation and the interior and exterior sides of the brick walls and mortar as well as lead paint on the soffit, eaves, other heavy metal contributors in addition to that in the flood water.
SODIUM IN SODIUM PERCARBONATE / SODIUM PEROXYHYDRATE IS NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT. MIXING SODIUM PERCARBONATE WITH HOT WATER RESULTS IN A SOLUTION THAT REMAINS ACITVE FOR ABOUT 8 HOURS; UPON WHICH IT HAS GIVEN UP ALL OF IT'S HYDROGEN GAS, OXYGEN GAS AND IN A HIGH CONCENTRATED 5 GALLON MIX, ONCE DRY, VERY LITTLE SODIUM CARBONATE (COMMONLY KNOWN AS SODA ASH) IS LEFT.
I've also read go/no go on vinegar. I'm a big fan of the apple cider vinegar, but have eliminated it because of negative reviews.
Wow very interesting what you wrote I also have mold and asthma from a house that I was leave in 10 years ago and now I struggle take hidrogen peroxide and feel awfal is it posibble that the fungos start to die and it makes me more ill? I take niacin for month now and put in my nose that foul of polyp h.p. and tea tree oil.
Oh my god this is horrible.
Hi! Saw your post and wondering how much DE you took and if you are still feeling well? I'm desperate to feel better and remove mycotoxins from my system.
First off, my MD attended a conference on mold illness. Detox, detox, detox is the key to healing from black mold . First, MUST move out of the mold environment if you want to get well. My MD has me on Cholestyramine and sure you can have the compounding pharmacy make it without sugar, but the price soars. My copay of $10. would suddenly be $200. I just took the one with sugar in it because of the cost . Since I was wheezing my doctor had me take a specialized test for my sinuses it was positive for mold so the compounding pharmacy made BEGS spray for my sinuses issue, so that took care of that . You can starve the mold in your body by cutting off their food source, so getting on a special diet helps, the anti-candida diet or look up mold warriors. If you have a rebounder jump on that for 10 minutes a day because it gets the lymph system moving helps detox.
As for Ozone it is oxygen with an extra 03 it does not kill mycotoxins, mold aspergillus etc. Ozone is great, but not effective against fungus/mold that is proven and it is simple science. My doctor has me taking different binders at different times of the day . Activated charcoal, Cholestraymine, Acz nanoparticle advanced cellular zeolite, Yerba Prima bentonite clay this is a super strong detoxifier this really grabs the mold and stops it from recirculating in your system . I seriously think it is way stronger than cholestraymine. Regular hot saunas ( not a fan of near infrared it does not cause the level of sweating that regular sauna does regular)if your too sick to stand or sit in sauna get a biomat and sleep on that . I got some extra cotton blanket and sweat out the toxins while I'm sleeping. I usually take the Yerba Prima bentonite clay to grab the toxins in my system while I'm sleeping and sweating. I always hydrate before going to use the sauna or biomat this way I never get a headache.
Also take a good mineral supplement/ electrolytes . I wash the bedding daily because sweating cause all the mold toxins and it's by products to be excreted onto blankets and sheets. I always wash in warm wash with ammonia . This is not something my doctor suggested I just did it I took a few ammonia baths a full bath and added clear ammonia in bath little less than 1/4 cup . I would wear eye goggles to be safe Washed all clothes in 2 c a clear ammonia (do not add detergent because it will alter the effectiveness of the ammonia) second wash with 1 c epsom salts. Do not cross contaminate your stuff and find a nice doctor that is educated in mold illness . Know there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Check out the ingredients in eye wash.
Borax is in it.
Thank God for old people who know natural remedies.
They most likely don't sale borax because they would rather have you buy something far more expensive.
Anti-Fungal Herbs and Foods
Over the last few years I have read tons and tons of posts regarding parasites and mold disease. I see Sorrokine's post is from seven years ago, but I want to thank him from the bottom of my heart. This is the most informative and uplifting post I've ever seen. I'm heading out for ammonia, (a couple cases), and will follow your herbal remedies to a "tea" ;). I hope you consider becoming a nutritionist. It's never too late.
Black Mold Remedies
I wanted to thank you for your post! I was looking through my plethora of items I have in my home. I realized that my enzyme contact solution has that ingredient. I squirted it on my window sill and various little spots in my bathroom that were moldy. It foamed up right away. My home is not infested, but I knew even a small amount in an non-ventilated bathroom could grow and cause a problem. I assumed if it is safe for my eyes, it must be safe enough to clean with!
In the wake of Hurricane Harvey many people will have to deal with their flooded homes, many of which did not have flood insurance. The combination of high moisture levels in these homes combined with summer heat creates a very good breading environment for mold. An anti-mold treatment that is relatively safe, inexpensive and effective is a saturated solution of borax applied via a spray device such as a garden sprayer. Hydrogen peroxide can also be combined with the borax to help increase the anti-mold effect. Vinegar can also be combined with borax as an effective anti-mold agent. Vinegar mixed with hydrogen peroxide is a very powerful disinfectant, but is not nearly as safe to use as borax, borax with hydrogen peroxide or borax and vinegar. Hydrogen peroxide and vinegar creates peracetic acid which is too powerful a disinfectant to be used safely by most people and should be left to people who are experienced in the use of peracetic acid.
I have used a combination of borax and hydrogen peroxide in a spray to treat wood that had mold on it. Bleach will kill mold on the surface of wood and will bleach the mold color away but will not kill what is below the surface and is not anywhere as safe to use as the borax and hydrogen peroxide. This mix can also be useful to deter ants which appear to be a problem in some of the flooded areas.
Reconstruction should not start until the mold has been eradicated and proper safety and breathing apparatus should be worn whenever mold is present.
i am still in my house. I just found and came to the realization that my rashes/bumps that won't heal, my cockatoos feather loss, and my dogs itching and breathing problems are due to mold. First step in confirming was I covered my ceiling vents with filters and in 2 nights I started healing on my face! My next step was get a mold test so I bought the 5 min kit and got a positive result. Now I need mold clean up and a new or clean evaporator coil. I am running a window unit and a portable unit at the moment and not running my central air until I get someone in to clean it up! Next step DETOX! Not just for me but my precious animals! I have 2 parrots 3 dogs and a cat. There is no way I could have found temp shelter for them and myself going through this because they need care and I am their person …… the one! I started cleaning my and the animals skin with sulfur soap and using essential oils (frankincense has anti fungal properties) also giving us all activated charcoal. I stopped the circulation of the mold and started cleaning the environment for some immediate relief. In some cases homeowners insurance will cover it minus the deductible. In my case I believe they will because the summer before last my AC unit was struck by lightning and covered on home owners insurance and because it was off for 2-3 weeks the coil had opportunity to grow mold as a result. So they are directly related, cause and affect. Let's hope my insurance people see it the same way as the AC guy! This has unknowingly been ongoing since then and my symptoms fall in line with this time frame. Hope my story so far helps and I will keep you posted.
You might want to try something I am reading about and just started taking myself with my dog and cats for a overall health and detox-in is Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth. It is suppose to have many benefits for health, cleaning, DE-dormer for humans and animals it also kills flea's, ticks, slugs, spiders, bedbugs and more something to look in to. good luck Thank you Suzanne
I would urge you to look at borax for mold removal effective for the dwelling and for your lungs upon ingesting. I would expect severe detox symptoms because of your situation and so I would start very small. I have linked just one ec experience but there are many. https://www.earthclinic.com/remedies/borax10.html
In reply to Dr.b.l. (Oregon),
I have personally not had much luck with colloidal silver for respiratory issuses unless I used it through an ultrasonic humidifier/vaporizer, but that may just be my issue. When I have used it with the ultrasonic humidifier it has been great for my respiratory problems that I have had.
If you know where it is in your apartment and you can get to the area where it is living, have the apartment manager treat it professionally to remove it altogether for your safety.
Standard hydrogen peroxide 3% saturated with borax has worked for me in a sprayer when I had mold in a bathroom years ago. I sprayed it directly on the visible mold. I also tried vinegar and borax and it worked similarly for me, but your manager really needs to take care of the mold before your health suffers more than it already is!
Consider an ozonator for killing mold in the rooms. You would probably not want to be in the room while it's working as too much ozone could irritate the lungs but it definitely should reduce the mold issue.
You can also nebulize the colloidal silver for lung treatments which would be very helpful.
Hello Dr. bl,
Re the mold issue and your use of CS. I use it too and in addition to your irrigation (mouth/eyes and ears), I also use a steamer inhaler to get the CS into lungs and from lungs a more direct root to heart and bloodstream. Also I use the CS with DMSO and apply equal parts as a poultice for 15 minutes applying to various parts of body...chest, sides, legs and especially to back of neck so it will get to brain. The above applications is what I use for a body wide infestation.
Dr.b.l. Mold is the enemy. Here is the information from Ted here on Earth Clinic I used to save us. This email is the basic. I recommend reading the whole chapter.
Beta Glucan 1000mg reduced in water 3x a day. Mushroom blend reiki shitake mataki 1000mg 3x a day. 10,000iu vitamin d3 in coconut oil in am. Selenium yeast 200mcg 1 to 2x a day. Basic get on your feet.
Buy bulk powder beta glucan or buy your supplements from Vitamins Because online. They are the most effective of all the brands and cost effective too. I have tried many brands. Not their b vitamins or vitamin d but NAC..for mucus and the others it is critical you get the most effective.
You are in a bad situation. Avoid bringing any items from old home to new. I say this because you are struggling already. Take this time to rent what you need. I was able to fix most of my situation because I had more time and was able to do this over time. But better to live with less. You will get well quicker.
Buy a $ 50 dollar ozone machine or 2. You can use it for so many things. Ozone water helps you feel better. I used my machines in hotels to "clean my rooms" before I dare stay in them. A very effective tool.
Read Bill Thompsons book Killing you Sweetly about Candida as it is the deadly cousin to mold.
I am living in an apartment with toxic black MOLD.... waiting to MOVE....taking colloidal silver daily in EYES...nose... ears and ingesting daily. I have been having respiratory problems...is there anything else you can recommend I do besides the silver and staying out as MUCH as possible? I am troubled with muscle spasms and pain in my head and shoulders and neck and heart. I have been here for 9 months...not certain of when I can MOVE. Thanks!
Black Mold Remedies
Can the coconut water be given to a dog? What brand did you use? Are you healthy now?
Black Mold Remedies
Hi Faith, very interesting post. Just wondered instead of drinking coconut water could you instead take organic virgin coconut oil? Wouldn't that do the same thing?
I juice cucumber and celery with a sweet red pepper. I can not have any fruit or the mold in my sinuses seems to grow.
Hi I've been reading all these sites and some of them say that vinegar is the worst thing you can do, along with mushrooms. We have been doing both. This is so confusing and frightening.
I read about non-standardized essential oregano oil being the best to keep the Synergy of all of the components intact. I read about the leaf of the oregano oil not being sufficent with the amount of constituents being unavailable is available and leaf and flower oil.
Where do I get a good unstandardized leaf AND flower oregano oil so that I can mix and spray in my home?
Apple Cider Vinegar
Hi, I know exactly what you're going through; doctors here SUCK! Then I find they get high ALOT but went to medical school in Dominican Republic in the 1970s. That's like Med school in Port Au Prince right after the earthquake. I'm in the Hudson Valley. I went to Hahnemann Medical College in Philly until they closed our program overnight. Then went to Ivy League becoming epidemiology researcher. I am on day two of this Apple Cider Vinegar and my cough, which only hurts when I start to laugh; then I start coughing to point of passing out sometimes. My cat and I were exposed to black mold. We both breathe so loudly it wakes me up. You need to find a good pulmonologist /diagnostician and get proper tests and pulmonary function tests that take 45 to 90 minutes. This two big breaths into a plastic tube is a scam; it tells you NOTHING! I'm a professionally trained vocalist, former yoga practioner and athlete, so my lungs know endurance. My lung problems occur mostly at night or when laughing hard. Im changing insurance so Jan 2017 I'll be free to get better care. I hope this vinegar helps. Though its acid to drink, it's metabolised into a base which affects blood pH. We hope it works. Are you getting enough VitD? Best regards, Jaimie
Apple Cider Vinegar
Finally some help I have not been made aware of. I live in south Orange County, Ca Severe mold poisoning. But as bowel is not functioning well enough to eliminate toxins that way due to thyroid not functioning properly, l I need an alternative. I am a little concerned about the ammonia though. Is there any risk? I am 65 and was in pretty good health prior. I certainly do not need any more problems. Would the ACV be just as good? The exposure caused a severe blood pressure rise and allergies to so many things. I have to be careful of a lot of herbs, etc. Really happy about the coconut water and chlorophil, etc. Many thanks. A lot of great ideas. I'll be trying, but will wait to hear more from you great people about ammonia. Also can you tell me what is the "6-hour regimen" mentioned by Sorrokine? Happy Holidays to all. Carmen
do you have a link in regards to Cholestyramine being a scam? And for the Ozone, too? I researched both a lot, and would be interested to read what you've found.
HI U Debee,,,,,,,,,, can you elaborate a little more on this subject. I use a diffuser and Lavender to relax me and help me to sleep. I bought my diffuser from Walmart. What is a pro diffuser? Also, what essential oils kill Black Mold?
I have posted that my DNA test now tells me that I have black mold. Right now I'm breathing Ozone 10 minutes a day bubbled through olive oil; drinking water that contains borax and grape seed extract; and taking the homeopathic drops from my integrative doctor . He also said to take a tbsp of diatomaceous earth a day.
As I tell all, follow my saga on the shady side of the mountain. I just accept the problems that life and old age brings. It's just another challenge and keeps me constantly researching and involved.
The poster I most admire on EC is my Ky neighbor Timh. He has lots of health issues, yet stays positive, and helps folks all over the world with his experienced counsel.
I try to do the same with my corny stories.
Be sure to use the right diffuser when using oils for mold. Putting moisture in the air is not helping your mold problem, but encourages growth! You need a pro diffuser and pure essential oils that kill the mold along with treating the area and than removing the source professionally. I hope this helps.
Timh,,,,,,,, excuse me, that's a half gallon jar. Don't get old.
HI U SUE, Timh and Noelle,,,,,,,, it is RHODIOLA and can be obtained from Life Extension. Learned that there is a rush on this product and some slippery folks are now in the business, so be discreet.
Timh, I fill a half quart jar with ionized alkaline water every morning and add 1/2 tsp of Borax and 15 drops of Grape Seed Extract. Heard back from Dr Roden. All I need is money. I want him to schedule my ozone stuff.
Noelle, you right, and some of the peanuts I raised were covered with mold inside the shell. If my Tractor Driver has this mold via her DNA test, then it is in our log cabin. Otherwise, I's getting it somers else, and peanuts are suspect.
Another thing that is messin up my mind is the DNA test that my integrative doctor does every 3 months. It tells you what your problems are, what fungus, parasites, etc., you have, and where your organs stand. Why don't the Allopathic doctors use this test. All you do is swab out your mouth with a Q tip and run that on a computer program. Too cheap and too effective is my thought. Medicine is now a money thing. That is the reason cancer has not been cured. Same ole same ole for the last 50 years. It is second only to energy as to the money it generates.
OUT OF SPIT. ======ORH=======
Don't forget about the importance of Iodine. Have you done the Borax cure for likely Mycoplasma in your joints & bones, what with all the pain and inability and all. Oregano Oil Softgels are quite potent, as is Black Cumin Seed, as well as Turpentine. Plus your Ozone and Rowens prescription and you should whip this one good over the winter and come out in the spring ready for the early garden.
Robert Henry, Have you thought about the connection between peanuts and aflatoxin mold exposure? Perhaps your fondness for peanuts is a contributor to mold showing up in your latest medical tests.
HI U JANET AND ART,,,,,,,,,, thanks for your input to my saga. It appears that a saga is full time as you age. My challenge now is to find the source as we have no signs of mold in our lake log home. We keep a dehumidifier going full time along with a ionizer light in our HVAC system.
I'm confident that the DNA results are right and just glad that my integrative doctor provides this. Otherwise, I'd have to wait until all the symptoms appear and years of tests to learn what my health problem is.
My first concern is to address the mold within my body. I can address this in a half ass manner with my health toys, but I want Dr Rowen's counsel. I don't have to go to Calif for this with all the communication tools available. He just needs to know what I can do and set my schedule. I have not heard back from him if he will take my case.
My Plasma Rife Machine has a program for this mold. My plan is to check our HVAC duct air and send the sample off for testing. If it's in there, then we will tear it all out and replace because we just had it cleaned two years ago and fogged the entire cabin with Grapefruit Extract. Like I say often, I's SJS.
I just watched a video of two professors telling us how to address dementia and Alzheimer's with some Russian herbs. I hope they have a gun carry permit because they will need it. No way will Big Pharma and Big Medicine allow that. Just as they did not allow the 6 Doctors to address cancer in stage 1 and 2 with a simple test and cure it with your own immune system. They were all working together and are now all dead. This happened in Fla. and Ga. in '15. I posted this when it happened.
Life is about as interesting as we can stand.
I meant to say that the mix has no "odor" or very low odor.
Robert Henry. I am glad you have narrowed down your ailment. Mold is my Kryptonite..my nemesis ...
It steals every bit of normalcy I have managed to gain in my health. It is the thing I suffer if I go in certain stores drive my old van. Attend a concert at older venues.
Ted's remedies have been my standby my cure my move forward to health.
His mold relief is the way I manage to save my health.
Vitamin d3 selenium and k2 lay the foundation.
Holy basil correct the adrenals.
Ted's ammonia remedy is the comeback. 5% ammonia in saturated borax water in a sprayer. Garden sprayer for big jobs. Hand sprayer for my body. 1 cup of ammonia in the tub. Face mask soaked in or sprayed with the solution saves me from exposures.
When the porch cracked water invaded the basement behind the paneling. No warning. I fell to the floor. No smell of mold it was just there. I keep a spray bottle on all the floors of the house with the mix. I reached for it sprayed some fabric of my shirt breathing through this got me up and out to stop symptoms. This monster mold steals everything if you allow it.
It is on Ted's remedies for mold email 7 or 8. It is the reason I am alive today.
I use my ozone machine to clean the air in places. I drink ozonated water. Much I learned from you. It is not enough. I take my machine on trips to hotels and treat the room and bathroom before we stay in it. But I travel with that spray.
I also treat the house foundation once or twice a month with the garden sprayer.
I use a mix of borax, hydrogen peroxide and baking soda in a sprayer to treat black mold. All three are mold killers and this mix has no order and is easy to work with. I have used this mix to treat moldy wood. Bleach will only kill mold on the surface of the wood and it is difficult and harmful to breathe the chlorine fumes. The combination of HP, BS and Borax is easy to make, readily available and very effective.
HI U GOOD FOLKS DOIN,,,,,,,,,,, learned today that black mold has consumed me in the last 3 months. The DNA test my integrative doctor does measures Vital Force ( VF) and this has gone from 8 to 48 in short order. He wants to address it with Homeopathic methods. I will be dead in short order.... so I have written Dr Robert Rowen to come to my rescue using Ozone as I have all the tools.
I first went on EC and read some great posts, but at 80 I can't have a hit or miss. Since we live on a lake, it may be mold in our log cabin, but we had the HVAC system addressed two years ago and sprayed down the cabin with Grape Fruit Seed Extract which we bought from Tennessee Mold to address this problem, if it existed. Our doctor took my Tractor Driver's DNA and if she has this problem then it's environmental, otherwise, I'm getting it from some other source.
Lordy, all know I's a great story teller, but I don't need this material.
I have learned that the Choleystramine is a scam. It is the only thing that the conventional MDs know. It is NOT the answer. Ozone for environment, and holistic/homeopathic mold detox for the body is recommended.
Mold doesn't just clear up in two days! You have to get blood work to make sure the Mold Spores are not in your blood! If Mold isn't eradicated from the body it will continue to grow and feed off your organs officially shutting down your organs and killing you. Colloidal Silver is great to use to kill the Mold Spores! To clean out my lungs and the nasal cavity with Colloidal Silver and a nubulizer machine and mask! Pure Frankincense essential oil is great for eradicating mold and healing leaky gut and curing digestive problems, 2-3 drops under the tongue.
Karen, it took me 2 years to get diagnosed.
When I first got mold illness there were other symptoms: Light (Photophobia), sound and movement sensitivity, blurred vision, dry heaves, brain fog, forgetfulness, breathing issues, wheezing, dizziness, heart issues, rash, fatigue and I was forgetting things. This level of illness lowers immune system, so small dental infection your body was keeping in check may now take over, that is why some o chronic illness specialist recommend biological dentist for cavitations surgery these infections drip virulent strains of toxins into the body. Complicated and costly. Many people will not get root canals in fear of setting up this scenario.
I did the two months and niacin detox and sometimes I did it twice a day.
Mold treatment took over a year . Still wheezing issue my doctor did a nasal smear MaRCONS. Got on BEGS spray most all of my symptoms are gone I had to do two rounds of BEGS to kill this infection. See mold specialist and get deep nasal smear, and the urine mycotoxin test.
A book that is imperative to read, Mold and Mycotoxin Current Evaluation and Treatment 2016. It is easy to read and understand it tells you how to get well
Thank you so so much for posting this. Can I ask what your symptoms were and what (if any) kind of improvements you have been making with this protocol and over what period of time? I have tried everything at this point but I am so sensitive to many treatments and supplements that I have to be careful and sometimes end up feeling worse. I would do anything to have my life back and unfortunately just don't have the proper guidance from the right doctors without having to spend a fortune. What did the nasal spray help you with exactly?
Thank you again for posting this - it's incredibly helpful.
Robert Henry, you're welcome and I'm glad it is helpful information
For mold it is suggested to use, Cholestryamine is better at attaching itself to mold toxins, than other binders. My doctor thinks many binders is better zeolite, and super activated charcoal
If you are not getting well from a sinus infection ... still wheezing, feel sick, brain fog dizziness and you had mold exposure or even a sinus infection. See a mold specialist for get tested for MARCons. Regular ENT doctors do not check for this .
MARCons (Multiple Antibiotic Resistant Coagulase Negative Staphylococci) is an antibiotic resistant staph that resides deep in the nasal passage of 80% of people with low MSH (Melanocyte-Stimulating Hormone), this is caused from mold/mycotoxin and chronic inflammatory illnesses CIRS .
The sinuses are a colonizing site for molds, the mold is living and reproducing in the sinuses 24 hours a day 7 days a week releasing toxins, increasing a toxic burden Here are few symptoms you may feel sick brain fog, tired, sleepy, dizzy, forgetful, wheezing, sinus inflammation headaches, and on edge because central nervous system in overwhelmed
Many people cannot get better from mold illness because the sinus are still infected. Get checked for MARCon. My test was positive and I took the BEGS sprays. BEGS spray is a prescription only. I think it was created by Dr. Shoemaker BEGS is an intense sinus spray it dissolves the biofilm so it can kill the infections. This cured my wheezing and the last lingering symptoms of my mold illness,
As for the niacin detox I wrote about it, is the greater the toxicity of the body the more niacin the doctor gives the patients I worked my way up to 600mg. It is best to get with a doctor that knows this stuff and can advise, supervise. For mold illness cholestyramine is very important and the niacin detox can help kick out the toxins and so you get well faster.
We found mold in the house we just moved into 2 months ago and all of us have been having health problems.
I was researching for holistic ways to deal with mold and came across your post. What brand of essential oils do you recommend?
And what proportions of Oregano, Frankincense, Clove, Cinnamon, Rosemary, Lemon, and Eucalyptus do you use in your capsules?
What do you use in the diffuser?
HI U FAITHJOY,,,,,,,,,, little darling, you have just posted the best solution to health problems that I have read in many a moon. Our daughter is in deep stuff and I gave her the same protocol that you did. She is smartern me so she half-assed my program.
That won't work. You have to start out slow like 50 to 100 mg of niacin. The lowest mg of pharmacy niacin is 500 and no one can stand that initially. MD's are ignorant people and only prescribe what the Big Pharma agents tell them to.
I'll get off my rant and encourage folks to take your post seriously. You may even be smartern me.
Black Mold and Heavy Metals Mega fast Detoxification
First off, detoxification is long process especially with mold. Some people feel better within weeks, for others, it may take over an year it depends on how long the exposure was and the types of mold that you were exposed or the level of heavy metal and the types of metals.
Mold poisoning has a genetic piece to it some peoples, bodies cannot tag toxins and get them out of the body. About 25% of the people's bodies do not recognize toxins, so the toxins keep recirculating, and the toxins level increases. The body goes haywire and begins to switch off things and switch on things. It can be most unpleasant, to say the least. It can make you so sick and it can be fatal. It is best to work with a doctors that are specialized in the area of heavy metals and mold, because you will get nowhere with regular medical doctor.
A few things I have learned;
Clay baths really decrease heavy metals and it also helps with mold.
Cilantro juice daily is the greatest chelator ever.
For people that are not getting well from mold poisoning, it might be related to sinus I saw three ear, nose and throat doctor smear test revealed I was fine. I even had sinus surgery they sent stuff to the pathology nothing was found. The ND mold specialist told me I need a deep nasal smear I was positive for MARCONS, an antibiotic resistant staph this is very common for people that have had mold exposure. For mold exposed people this is very common and you will no get well until you get treatment for it. It took four years to finally find someone that figured this out I was wheezing and it all stopped after I got treatment. There is also a biofilm piece to the sinus issue so it can all be treated.
Detoxification is based on Dr. Yu work they used to detox military and the 911 firefighters.
Fat tissue is where the toxins are stored, this fat is your body's intelligence at work, it stores to deal with later when the system is not overwhelmed and it is not going to stress the body. The average person has more than 500 – 1,000 times higher levels of toxic chemical in the fat than what is revealed in their blood serum
Niacin opens the fat tissues, fat cells and it opens and release the toxins it is like taking out the garbage.
Fat is much more toxic by 150 times than your blood serum. Now that the toxin has been released from the tissues and cells, the detoxing with sauna and activated charcoal begins.
The sauna and charcoal or clay are very, very important. If you did not do this the toxins would be recirculation and reabsorbed into the body this is what you are trying to avoid.
This detox will also help with brain fog and just overall health. Dr Yu suggests that people should do this regularly two times a week. I do it daily because I have mold poisoning also known, as mycotoxin illness or sick building illness
You take niacin which is B3 make sure it is good quality and take it with a piece of fruit or something small it is easier on your stomach.
Begin by taking niacin 50mg you wait 20 minutes and then you exercise for 20 minutes this gets the heart rate up and sweat.Then you sauna for an hour I started with 30 minutes. The sauna temperature should be 130 to 140 the preferred sauna is the low or no emf sauna infrared sauna once you are done with sauna take two activated charcoal with a glass of water this will grab all the toxins that are stirred up and take a shower to rinse away all the toxins, I used a soft loofa brush to gently scrub my skin while in the shower this helps in the detoxification process.
Regarding niacin dosage: Start at 50mg and work your way up to 200mg. For the severely ill gulf war soldiers and firefighters, they used 5000mg. Of course this was under doctor's supervision. Niacin makes you feel flushed, prickly, and, itchy feeling that is normal it is known as the niacin flush. Some people take a cold shower it makes the body feel better. As all things use good judgment if it makes you feel too itchy or uncomfortable stay at 50mg and you want to make sure your not allergic to it. With so many odd fillers in vitamins just be sure that your aware of the difference between niacin flush and an allergic reaction.
My friend thinks after a couple weeks niacin flush, disappears, the other thought on this is that you keep reacting this way because you are toxic. And once you have cleaned all the toxins out then you will no longer react. Also, few hours after you have taken the charcoal it is best to take minerals, electrolytes, some people drink coconut water This is important as well take a mega vitamin B supplement with a focus on the A. B, C, D E, lecithin.
I also do a coffee enema with non-mycotoxin pure coffee a three times a week to help detox.
If you're an undermethylator, skip the niacin and meet with specialized doctor to come with an alternative plan.
All chlorella is not the same, some are way more effective and powerful so make sure you buying organic and pure. Some brands from China have metal and toxins, which is just more burden on the body. Do your homework, because you do not want to end up sicker.
Is anyone wondering what causes the 'ice pick' pain usually listed as a symptom of toxic mold exposure. It is mold injecting itself into your skin. If the scientist would take the lid off their specimen jars they'd learn that mold doesn't need a opening from a surgery or broken skin to enter thru. That stuff sliced thru skin and dives in.
It's true. One on my ice pick pains hurt so bad and I saw a black curly Q string sticking the spot of pain. I broke off when I tried to remove it. Two years later no doctor will help me and I can barely use my hand. I am having better luck with my fingertips on my other hand but I touched the wrong thing and The pain was worse than I can believe. I ran for a magnifying glass to see what was wrong and there were fine black short hairs stuck in my fingertips. They wisp away when I rub them but It felt like a million poisons needles in my skin.
That's only 2 stories from my past two years in the twilight zone. One more bit of info. is check your house after dark with a flashlight. I accidentally found my bedroom ceiling was thick with a cobweb like mold hanging 3 to 4 inches deep and covering the entire ceiling. I still can't believe what I saw when my flashlight lit it up in pastel colors fading into one another.
Two years massive migraines, vision loss and major loss of brain function and no idea I was sleeping under that massive colony. Honest I never saw even one hint there was anything on my ceiling. I'm afraid of lady bugs I sure wouldn't have ignored that.
Ck. your house at night with a flashlight. I just happened to walk into my bedroom one night with a lit flashlight and wow. Never knew it was there.
God help us all.
I sprayed my throat 3 times per day. The mold caused an intermittent catch in my throat which made me cough.
I want to share a few more points. Mold exposure may infect the sinuses. My doctor was certain. I had mold in my sinuses. I had a nasal smear, A specialized lab was used that mold literate doctors or an environmental illness doctors will use to identify what is growing in the sinuses. From what, I understand this must be done or you will get sick again and again, because what is growing in the sinuses will reinfect you. I was given EDTA spray for biofilm and the doctor told me I could use xylitol, (buy at grocery store). I then mixed the xylitol with sterilized warm water in my neti pot and pinch of baking soda and sea salt to flush sinuses, then wait a few minutes for the biofilm to dissolve then use the medicine spray. In my case this was determined by what was found growing in my sinuses.
One of the most effective, fastest way to get well is to starve mold out of the body, Stop alcohol, sugar, dairy, grains, no peanuts or, mushroom or corn. The anti- fungal diet or look up Mold Warriors diet this is so important it spends up recovery. Drink lots of cilantro and celery juice this is chelator
Cholestraymine is drug of choice, it, has sugar in it and it is cheap. There is a special order a pure form no dye, no sugar it is more pricey . Some people will take cholestepure they want something natural . I took cholestraymine, but I prefer the broken cell wall chlorella, zeolites, clays and activated charcoal. Before bed I would take a detox med. then I would wake up at midnight and take some charcoal or mixed clay and go back to sleep so my body is in a continual state of detoxing, while I sleep. As for ozone it does not kill mycotoxins I read it crystallizes mold, Yikes
This took me awhile to understand, that fastest way to detox is get on the diet and take several different things since they all do different things and work on different parts of the body. The cure is an attack on all fronts.
For clothes exposed to mold /mycotoxins .I had black garbage bags for contaminated clothes and then I would put in white bags for cleaned clothes Wash clothes in washer with 2 cups ammonia I do a triple rinse and dry. Another doctor suggests 1 cup borax detergent, 2 tablespoons nizoral which has 1% keticonazole and I use 1 cup biokleen detergent or regular detergent again extra rinse. I did both to be on the safe side
DO NOT MiX ammonia and Bleach ever, most people know this, it is worth repeating.
I'm glad the information helped
The doctor that treated me was a MD/ND and a Chinese medicine doctor, sadly closed his practice this year .
A couple other things my doctor recommended Vital nutrients BCQ (iwhich is boswellia serrata, bromelain, Curcum longa, Quercetin) and Cal-Mag Butyrate this I believe is a remove neurotoxins, and a gentle powerful binding clay Springgreen77
A couple of others I took peach extract, and drank pine needle tea and lots of cliantro and celery juice
I would like to suggest to anyone suffering with black mold spore/mycotoxins poisoning Look on Dr Shoemakers website and there is a list of medical and naturopathic doctors that have trained with Dr. Shoemaker and and are trained in treat this illness . I know that mold illness has pretty severe symptoms, just know it takes time to get all the pathways that have been disrupted by mycotoxins in the body back on track. It took me one year for all of the dizziness to disappear. There are IV's available to help detox as well.
Hi, your post regarding mold remedies was very helpful, could you please recommend a good doctor that you used for your treatment? How long it took you to be 100% free of mycotoxins? Thanks!
For mold the best thing is to stop all sugars. Eat raw foods that are organic. Eat lots of green vegetables and make sure they are rinsed with white vinegar. Look for a detox regime that will help get rid of mold. Wash all clothing, sheets and towels with an odor eliminator and get a good quality air cleaner for the home. Get a water purifier for your shower and drink bottle water that is alkaline. Take supplements that will strengthen your immune system, that's key. Drink some organic chlorophyll follow instructions on bottle. Soak in Epsom Salt and with a little ACV. I hope everyone gets some relief. Prayer helps too and getting close to God.
This message is for the first post by Grant of Ontario. Did you take oregano oil as a tincture, pill or some other form? You mentioned you mixed it with Frankincense but I was wondering how and it what proportions. Thanks for clarifying.
Rid Mold in Home
My doctor told me that people that are sensitized to mold can never ever return to a house that had mold because most all of the mold allergic patients that tried to move back to a house that was remediated would usually get sick again and end up moving from the house . The environmental illness doctor told me this , that mold spores can travel into sheetrock and into the insulation these areas will not look effected so they will not be replaced during remediation, but this spores and it by products will continue to interact and breath out TOXIC byproducts into the air this was shocking information.
25% of people are allergic to the mold and 75% are not. The doctor told me that my spouse was not YET allergic to it, but over time it would break down the immune system because it is so toxic it may cause serious health complications. My understanding is that bleach and ozone does not kill mold the only thing that kills mold is ammonia. Borax is something I'm don't enough.
I wondered if you have found a book that covers the material you stated about mold eradification:namely Ammonia etc. We too have found that bleach didn't work which surprised us and Ammonia did on our clothes and linens. Thanks to you, we now know why! it all comes down to yin and yang really ~ negative & positive charges.
Thank you for all your knowledge you shared!
We are at the beginning of trying to get well, even tho we've been at it for 2 years, no insurance but medicaid and no doctors that even want to do a fungal culture or zilch to diagnose the problem.
Now to try and get Medicaid to cover some of Dr. Berndtson's bill (he is trained under Dr. Shoemaker in Il.).

Anti-Fungal Herbs and Foods
I am in the process of trying to figure out what supplements to take to help me feel better from mold poisoning. I have been sick for over a yr now and am still declining. I really need help and dont know what to do. I have so many of the symptoms that this causes
You may want to take natural cures because steroids aren't the only thing to take. The 3% ammonia should work in a bath, as well as in washing clothes. I have found that tinctures such as Jojoba, Oregano Oil, Olive Leaf, Argon Oil, Grapefruit Seed, Kalmegh, Coconut oil all help. You can add these to tomato juice. Wipe down all surfaces with Colloidal Silver solution (Fungicide/viruside/anti-bacterial). Get an air cleaner with very good filters down to .003 microns. Get full testing and Infrared Thermography to check hot spots for mold and mycotixins. After remediation, get clothes cleaned environmentally with OZONE. Take lots of vitamins and little sugar. These things should help.
I tried the Horsetail Extract for Silica for healing but experienced absorption problems and irritated colon. Eventually I tried Diatomaceous Earth with other minerals in footbath with healing results.
So, another good natural source of Silica is Diatomaceous Earth.
Think about trying bamboo capsules. After taking too numerous remedies to count for severe health problems (several), I have improved dramatically with silicon. Best natural source with the most silica is bamboo, then there is also horsetail. There is also organic silicon, but it is rather expensive to me. So the two I have taken are: bamboo capsules and organic silica from horsetail. For myself, I have taken the bamboo capsules 1 - 4x daily or the silica 3 - 3x daily. Actually, I have doubled that dose for awhile. That is about equal to the same amount of silicon in each product. Bamboo has the highest silicon of any natural product. This is taking more than the bottle label says, but I am going by the daily dose of silicon recommended by the manufacturer.
In general, there is 25 mg silicon in 50 mg of silica. For me, silicon is a wonder. I know it is promoted to be for hair, skin, and nails, but for me, I think it is an answer for cancer, mold, fungus, mercury poison, and lyme. I just had to take more than the label dose. I realize different things work for different people, but I truly believe in this for me.
I wish you the very best in life. Kind regards, Jackie

For those persons having constipation while taking cholestraymine, drink 1-2 tablespoons of a good virgin olive oil with your meals and you will not have any cholestraymine caused constipation again.
I have been on a custom compounded cholestraymine since 2007 for Mold Mycotoxins Diesase that is the pure resin only, no synthetic nor natural sugars, nor any other fillers such as aspartame, which is banned in most countries of the world.

Hello! I couldn't help but notice the testimony on here pertaining to internal mold removal and which products to use.
To make a long story short, I had to leave an apartment due to horrendous water damage and mold. I was a tenant for six years! The last week there was fairly hellish. I awoke early to feel something heavy and inflamed on my tongue. Lo and behold, it was my right tonsil.
At the emergency room, I was diagnosed with viral pharyngitis. It took quite a few days for the steady decrease in size but it hasn't returned to its normal size. My anxiety was through the roof (in a way that I haven't experienced) and then my digestive track went crazy. Its true that the stress was high but I hadn't dealt with these issues ever!
After practicing yoga daily (which quenched a great deal of anxiety) and preparing various herbal teas, I was still at my wits end. A gentleman on this forum admitted to many of my issues and suggested Oil of Oregano. My family is very much into natural healing and upon hearing testimony from my grandmother, we purchased a bottle. The initial dose was very fast acting. My throat opened up and I could swallow normally. The nasal passages opened like flood gates. I felt like I had a head transplant. Don't give up or fret for those of you on the brink.
Oil of Oregano has many medicinal uses. (Please be advised not to use it if you are allergic to the mint family).

Faith - Please, I'm looking for an experienced specialist in the San Francisco Bay Area. Mold exposure from school!!! I have Kaiser, but, they are no help. This war is an outrage!
My doctor, an environmental illness and mold expert, is a great doctor! Mold allergy is serious can be fatal There are so many pathways in the body that are disrupted, and how the body reacts is shocking. A doctor of this caliber knew instantly how to deal with this mold/mycotoxins poisoning. For example I had a fired up parasympathetic nervous system caused heart palpitations, heart was beating so hard my body would shake, and I had tremors. I saw two cardiologist that gave me two different diagnosis. The underlying cause for my heart issue was mold poisoning.
It is best to move from mold house, and do not return even after remediation.( Believe me I know how hard it is to leave your home, but it so not worth it when you might die from mold exposure).Because your more likely will react, statistically that has been the case . Do not cross contaminate your new house with items from items from your old house.
Take several binding agents, because different binding agents bind to different types of mold! I took cholestyramine and few other binders. I did saunas, colonics, and several detoxifiers. I was also on specific kinds of IV's for releasing the mold toxins in the tissues, causing faster detoxification. Also injections into the ganglion centers was offered to reset the body and help the parasympathetic system.
The doctor explained to me once the house has mold you cannot get it out even after remediation. Imagine a grain of sand cut into 20 pieces how can you see that with the naked eye. If you breath one little piece in you will react.
From everything I've researched, ozone does not kill mold. In fact the mold clean up team brought some other type of fogger, the name escapes me.
Ammonia kills mycotoxins. We fogged our house with 2x this was after remediation . We of course wore a bunnysuit total face cover and eye googles. Ammonia kills the mycotoxins. Get this it does not kill the by-product that is gassed off from the dead mycotoxins. Nor can you get mold out of carpet and the walls completely it can travel deep into the walls it is invisible. The majority of patients from this doctors case studies showed that many patient return to remediated house. They all got sick and moved , except one family was going to go back there and try to live. The same happened to me we returned to our remediated home and I got sick we moved. Do not gamble with your health or your life.
I was exposed to hidden ( odorless, invisible) black mold for three years in newer house, Symptoms began with itchy skin, red dry eyes, progressed to dizziness, blurred vision, nausea, wheezing, heart palpitations , rash, brain fog, neurological problems, tremors, shortness of breath, weight loss totally disabled. Most . The a brilliant doctor, thought I had mycotoxin poisoning. He put me on Cholerstraymine four to five times a day, charged Zeo-lites, broken cell Chlorella, all of these were taken at different times of the day. Nutritional balancing, fungus free diet, and taking quality probiotics. Sauna daily and colonics help tremendously. Getting detox from black mold takes time so be patient. We finally discovered the mold and moved. I washed all clothing with ammonia in the washer ( I wore eye goggles and wore gloves when handling ammonia) I also rinsed clothes twice this kills mycotoxins in the clothes.
Apparently, Dr Shoemaker did write that many very effective methods were being used in other countries to treat black mold. If anyone knows of other methods please do write .

I just ran across your description of your failing health... Please look up MMS AND JIM HUBBLE. On the Internet.
it could very well change your situation. I have had a severe rash and weeping skin for several years and no doctors wanted to pursue it. I got immediate relief from MMS and it is slowly but surely disappearing. It has been 6 months and it changed my life. Please do yourself a favor. This is easy to do.
It it is a drink or a topical that is safe and inexpensive. Please please try it.
To your good health........LR
Move out! Asap! If its in ur hvac then the mycotoxsin from the black mold have probably gotten in your belongings as well. Mycotoxsin are very dangerous to your health they are extremely toxic. I've been going through a similar situation. You need to read on black mold and its effects on ur health good luck.
For Mold Problems: It is imperative you get on a candida diet, accentuating alkaline foods (kills internal mold), and take high doses of magnesium oxide as well as soaking in Epsom Salts (another source of magnesium. Magnesium is essential to all body functions and mold crashes the immune system depleting the magnesium levels as the body fights the mold. Work toward excellent nutrition, supplementation, and detox. All are equally important. Leaving mold exposure is ideal, but not always an option. Fresh air as much as possible.
I'm dying of long term & acute exposure to massive amounts of Aspergillis, Stachybotros, and various Cladosporium.
Have too many fungal infections to list and even though I cut my hair short every time I wash it I lose a ton and it breaks, and every morning all I have to do is shake my head and a cloud of fine dust-like cotton flies around.
Ive tried so many of the things mentioned here but can't find a doctor who knows or cares - even though I knew what the problem was I was almost hospitalized psychiatrically.
My stool actually LOOKS like mold (anyone who wants proof I can send photos) , the pelvic pain is unbearable, my blood doesn't clot anymore, my skin is becoming so porous I can't use anything unless I want it to end up in my bloodstream, I've lost several teeth, one of which was a dead tooth with no cap and the space left is getting eaten through to the bone, I have swollen joints, circulatory problems, my fingernails & skin are so thin I'm going to get cellulitis soon or just circulatory collapse, no matter where I go or what I leave behind it doesn't matter.
i know I'm dying - I tried all these things.
i lost 25 pounds in 4 months and over half my haiir.
And I couldn't even get a doctor to run a fungal on my urine which is often rosy/ rust & opaque.
im tired of this.
my body can't do it anymore.
And there is NO PLACE a person can go that has NO MOLD.
I tried so hard to get a doctor to help but they all treat me like I'm crazy, in spite of all the information and vetted science at U if Adelaide's website and elsewhere.
I GIVE UP.
Good luck to all,
I realize some time has gone by TN222222, I have become a bit of a mold expert out of nessesity and bleach does not kill mold. mold and bleach both have a positive charge, you need something with a negative charge to deal with mold. Bleach kills bacteria and bleaches mold but does not kill mold. "Clear Amonnia" (it says clear on the label) is what you want. It has a negative charge and will kill mold. This was taought to me by a pathologist Dr William Croft. 2 cups in full load laundry should take care of clothes or anything that will fit in the washer. in a spray bottle 50% water 50%amonnia to spray smaller arias, please note you still have to remove all contaminated materials, once the area is gutted and cleaned than spray again. Of course I am not reccomending anyone clean mold themselves but small areas, issues with mold throughout the rest your life this can come in handy. I periodically wash my clothes with amonnia to freshen. Just dont breathe it in:)
Lauriciden, Olive leaf extract, Colloidal silver, oregano oil are some of the best antifungals and probiotics.
Please apply 3 coats of bleach (1/4 cup bleach powder in 1 quart water) on all the walls/ceilings/furniture/everything to kill the fungus. Then, scrape of the whole paint of the walls, ceilings. Re-paint with borax mixed in the paint.

My family is sick from mold poisoning from a rented home we have lived in for over 5 years, the mold was hidden under the paneling and carpet in the basement. Long story, and not a good one.
We just went to NY to see Dr. Irene Grant, she is AMAZING and knows a lot. I would HIGHLY recommend her.
How much colloidal silver should I take for mold for mold in the lungs?
I have mcs from mold so I'm wondering how to take this stuff when I'm so sensitive. I think I have mold in the lungs.
Our compound is 10 years old and has five floors, each level at one time or another has been ravaged by black mold. Water leaks from the roof and leaky plumbing in units has exasperated the problem along with no treatment for years. Ongoing employee illnesses are all the same as exposure to black mold symptoms. The top two floors are covered in black mold now and in our units mold creeps in. Wish I could attach a picture.
Will borax eliminate this type of severe mold issue? After a year of no response the company will now apply borax. The AC system is infected. I am really asking can this type of chronic mold infestation be addressed or is moving out the solution?
Few more things I've learned working with specialized doctor regarding mold poisoning - Taking Cholesyramine carries mold/mycotoxins out of the body. The broken cell wall chlorella does the same thing; take it an hour away from food. Avoid taking it at night, might keep you awake I read the broken cell chlorella maybe very be superior to cholesyramine. Also for sinus issues, consider distilled water mixed with 1/2 tsp xylitol mixed with few drops SSKI and 2 to 3 drops liquid dmso in a neti pot; it breaks the biofilm down and attacks the infection.
Why aren't you using bleach on black mold? And does ammonia really work on mold and yeast ( in clothes) and fungus? I cant find anything on this.
