I was diagnosed by a Toxicologist in 10/09 with Late Stage Two Mycotoxicosis from a biopsy and a urine analysis. Doctors, Allergist and almost every doctor for an entire year could not do this. They told me it was allergies and such. I started to work in the basement office building May of 2008. The symptoms started in as little as three months there. Inside the mold contaminated building, I developed narcolepsy, boils, skin redness, yellow spots on my skin, white hair, vision disorders, depression, digestion issues, vomiting, jitters, shaking, mood swings, almost like a bi-polar disorder, lack of normal bowel movements, burning urine, really, the list goes on forever. Now before this building, and this job, I was a healthy 28 year old, with not one sign of any health issues. In fact I was fit, sound, and happy. Eventually these doctors I had visited each time told me that this is something they cannot investigate or they will loose their license as per the FDA. Found out normal studies in medical school do not include training on any type of mold sickness. What a Load of bull____.
Since being infected with mycotoxins and mold from a terribly poor quality office environment for roughly 18 months, which was covered with several different types of mold, (oozing with mycotoxins to the point they dripped from the walls to the floor - yellow color - they are the result of competing molds in their vicinity. ) I Finally began to look into some sort of cure. Prior to me meeting this amazing toxicologist, who is a leader in Mold sickness around the world, he was also the first to explain to me that the only way to kill mold and their toxins, is AMMONIA. (his info is on my site listed below) That's it. Ammonia kills the mycotoxins as well as the mold itself. TO MAKE THIS CLEAR - Bleach and peroxide cannot kill mold - they will just eat it as food. So He carefully instructed me to pour a 8 ounce cup of 3% clear ammonia into a warm bath and soak for 20 minutes. This saved my lungs which were coated in mold and mycotoxins, as well as killed some of the yeast in my skin and body from absorption and contact. I highly recommend that if you know you're sick from mold, and near death, honestly, this is the first step. Ammonia baths. It saved my life. Also clean your house with it as well if you are not MCS (Multi-chemical sensitive - which is a result of chemical treatments for mold, and the mold itself causes this disorder - Baking soda kills mold on contact, however cannot kill the mycotoxins)
Also it is important to remember a few things on this subject. Washing all your clothing, sheets, towels and such in a cup of 3% clear ammonia is highly important since you release mycotoxins from your skin. They must be removed. Ammonia is the only way. Finally after two years of suffering, almost dying in December of 09, I had to quit the job and leave the premises that contained these terrible molds. My boss, my landlord all could care less. Great people. OSHA, cared little as well. I went to a homeopathic doctor who put me on an anti-candida diet, which is the main reason those who suffer with mold poisoning die so horribly. No carbs, no sugar, no yeast, nothing fermented. Candidas Albicanis is a yeast in our gut that can take over everything in our body when our immune system is compromised. It was eating away at my skin, my muscles, my organs, the toxin invaded my brain, and I lost sight partially in my left eye, and hearing in my left ear. It feeds off of all the sugar and carbs you ingest, starving your cells from the nutrients they desperately need. This diet didn't do much, but it did help with the nausea and vomiting issues. I also had a herbal tea mixture my friend and I researched. Bayberry root bark, Pleurisy root, gotu kola, nettles, Cinnamon and cloves. I was on this on and off in a two day cycle for about two months. Helped drastically, but not so much all the symptoms. Also catnip tea helped with the sleeping disorder and insomnia late at night. Teaspoon of each in a 32 ounce pot. Drank whole pot in one day, repeated next, then gave myself two days to recover.
So only as of about 3 months ago, I started a strict regimen of Supplements I heavily research to aid me in my recovery since all doctors said I was just going to die from this. The amazing realization is that what I had researched, is a cure to mold poisoning as well as candida infections. Yeasts, fungi and mold are not based on chlorophyll, they are single cell life forms based on a bacterial way of existence. Living off a host to gain nutrients. From Studying different anti-fungal herbs and foods, I created a regimen of supplements that has saved my life. They are:
Chlorophyll Supplements - (liquid gel caps, or liquid)
Alfalfa Extract - (for digestive and lack of appetite also lifts mood. )
Grape Seed Extract(breaks thru the brain blood bond barrier to clean out fluid inside)
Grapefruit Seed Extract - anti fungal
Milk Thistle - (Liver Function)
Oil of Oregano - Strong anti-fungal(only 3 wks on then 3 wks off)
Burdock (Liver function)
Dandelion (liver function)
Garlic - (Anti-fungal and heart help)
Onion - (anti-fungal)
Neem seed Oil (Exterior and interior treatment)
Rose hip Tincture
These I take in the morning when I wake up, and then again ever six hours. So far in as little as 3 months, All the skin abrasions, yellow spots, red boils, vision disorder, mood disorders, mood swings, bi-polar disorder, depression, hearing disorders, jitters, narcolepsy, brain fog, digestion issues, weakness of muscles, acidic body Ph, yellow nails, odor, omitted toxins after bathing left on towels, (Yes I smelled like mold, and after I bathed, the towel smelt the same way. It is a smell you can never forget. ) all of these symptoms - DISAPPEARING!! COMPLETELY FADING EACH DAY! I am so thankful I never gave up, and I am forever thankful for these wonderful aids in finding my recovery. I wanted to share this with as many people as possible since there are over 500, 000 diagnosed deaths from mold sickness each year, and thousands more that go on undiagnosed until autopsy.
Thank you and Here's to everyone learning we may have to live in a polluted world, but we don't have to live with polluted bodies!
Oil of Oregano after 3 months long nightmare
May of 2009 it started with sore throat and nasal congestion. 7th day i started feeling just fine. 8th day i woke up with a major sore throat then following 7 days i had chills (no fever) diarrhea, coughs, stabbing feeling all over my body. Then i went to see a doctor (no insurance) he said that my tonsils are infected so i have to take antibiotics and for hardship breating he gave me steroids. 4 days later tonsils still swollen and i cant breathe also diarrhea is full throttle. i was drinking 5-6 quarts of water every day. 19th day i went to see same doctor. listened to my lungs, ordered x-ray which came out clean and he told me that i am ok. BUT I WASNT. For diarrhea he diagnosed me with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) 6 days passed and my symphtoms are same but not getting worse.25th day i went and bought a humidifier for my room hoping to be able to sleep better. and also i wanted to close the a/c vent in my room. Right at that point I FACED THE REALITY. MOLD!!! my a/c vent was black in color. Very next day i called a company that tests homes for molds. Results came back in 3 days after i spent $400. my a/c unit had Aspergillus (high levels),Cladosporium (elevated levels) Penicillium (high levels). i went to see the doc again. he told me that its like impossible to prove that my health is bad because of those mold species.And addition to that he told me that skin prick test for this issue is expensive and i dont have insurance so he told me to just rest and pray that i will get better on my own. For the following 2 months i started getting worse. I quit my job. I was hopeless.
Then i read it somewhere on the net that OIL OF OREGANO will do the trick. I cut of eating anything that has yeast and started taking 4 oil of oregano capsuls every 8 hours and taking 1000mg vitamin c every 8 hours.Sublingual B12 25 drops everyday. 2nd day diarrhea gone. 7th day i am almost back to normal.
I hope this will help someone out there. I am a believer of oregano oils antifungal, antiviral, anti bacterial properties.
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.
Black Mold Remedies
We moved out of our house and I had been taking the cholestyramine. For some reason my recovery seemed really slow. So I started taking more activated charcoal and chlorella. Then I accidently stumbled onto something that was miraculous. I began to notice I felt so much better! Then I realized about 10 days ago, I had started drinking 2 to 4 cans of coconut water daily that was made from fresh coconuts (NOT dried coconut since dried coconuts has mycotoxins in it and since mold creates mycotoxins dried coconut must be avoided) So I called the company to ask them about the coconut water and it was made from fresh coconuts. On the can is C20 this is 100% natural. Apparently, coconut is anti fungal, anti-viral and anti-parasitic, there is a long list of it's miraculous effects.
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.
Can someone please help me ASAP.. I have Black Mold & Aspergillosis poisoning..... Thank you Johnelle
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.
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!
For two years, I was so sick nausea, sore throat, rash, dizziness, chronic fungal sinus infection, burning, dry eyes exhaustion, wheezing, heart palpatations and shaking trembling feeling like I many I thought I was goner. I saw over 60 doctors I did not know that doctors are not trained in detecting mold poisoning, nor do they test for mycotoxins .
If your ill and no one can find the cause it can be your house . Our 4 year old dream home became a nightmare home, we had a hidden leak one day I noticed a crack in the sheet rock the plumber must of forgot to put the two pipes together a quietly totally invisible leak for a long time! Specialist were hired they fumigated and began fixing the damage. It was serious they wore hazmats suits! They found Stachybotrys, penicillin and hyphae. This is straight from intergrative MD told us to move out of our home even if we had to live in tent or rent a motorhome. We were blessed by God to have our condo to go to. We took the full mycotoxins test the only lab the does this nationally is in Texas We were told not to take anything with us because we could cross contaminate the new enviroment . We were put on natural Gamma detox which is 1/4 tsp zeolites/bennonite clay (carries the byproducts out of the body) 2 times a day , Mycotoxins inhibitor 10 drops of Mycotoxins inhibitor 3 x times and I also drink 1/8 tsp borax in liter a water drink throughout the day and I bought these homeopathic borax pellets and put one in my neti pot let it dissolve add sea salt, baking soda and sterlized water then really flush my sinuses by holding one nostril shut and breathing in the water until it the water comes to the back of your throat this really works to clean and kill the fungus in my sinuses this worked well for me We also took detox complete, and caprylic pills or you can take fresh virgin coconut oil a couple 2 tsp 2 daily make sure that the coconut oil is made from fresh coconuts NOT dried coconuts since dried had has mycotoxins in it . Also milk thistle helps the liver clean out the body drink lot's of water. Anyhow it takes a few months to feel better but eventually you do, this sort of ordeal forever changes your view on life.
M from Texas wrote about ailments possibly stemming from toxic mold. My young son and I are victims of toxic mold inhalation and exposure, so I have learned more about the subject than I ever wanted to know. The most important point I want to get to this person is, if you took things from that apartment, especially if mold was visible on them, you have just brought the problem with you. The mold is now growing in a new home, and you are still exposing yourself to it. My son and I had to leave everything behind and move from our home. Traditionally Western medical practioners do not even want to acknowledge the health problems associated with toxic mold; They have received no training for it in medical school, and there is pressure on them from numerous areas such as insurance companies, real estate management and developers, etc., to not acknowledge the affliction. I am treating my son with a number of natural remedies, although ACV hasn't been one of them, I intend to try it. But what I have found to be helpful is pure essential oils. Oregano is the best, but when mixed with Frankicense, and a special formulated blend of Clove, Cinnamon, Rosemary, Lemon, and Eucalytpus, the synergy of the Oregano is enhanced. I put these oils into a gelatin capsule and take them orally. I also get massages with oils over the spinal area which is where the fungi like to live, in the spinal fluid. These oils with the massage, called a Raindrop technique massage, will help drive the mold from your body. I do experience the mold ejecting from my body with skin bumps that spit out these nasty little white or brown crystal-like things, the size of a piece of salt or a little larger. They get easily infected, so it is important to keep the skin very clean, and to use Colloidial Silver or some other method the keep bacterial growth down. I am open for ideas to replace Colloidial Silver, because it is so very expensive. Any ideas?? Also, we now use a diffuser in our home which diffuses essential oils into the air we breathe. This has helped our conditions a lot, and it helps ensure that as molds are being tracked into our home, that we are killing them.
Just be sure that you are getting PURE ESSENTIAL OILS. They cannot be fragrance grade or be adulterated in any way. If anyone would like more information on where to get these oils, they can feel free to contact me at [email protected],net. Love your site!!!!!!!! Ask all to pray for us, and for all victims of toxic mold.
Research diatomaceous earth for mold poisoning.. I am on it and feeling great.
I have recently discovered a website by an Italian Oncologist, Dr Simoncini, who has discovered that cancer is actually a fungal growth from candida and he has had great success curing people from all forms of cancer using baking soda mixed with molasses. I am thinking that as mould is a fungus, that this same procedure may work for those people infected with mould in their bodies. This is his website http://www.curenaturalicancro.com/
He really needs the support of people who believe in other cures other than just pharmaceuticals!
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.

- 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.

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.
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.
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.
Like most people in the mold forum me too I thought I'm going to die if I didn't find a solution. If not from the direct result in every organ in my body I would kill myself as the Central nervous system is my very big reaction from mold. The problem has linger on for more than a year since I found out the cause of all my illness. Yet I researched combed every website on the internet since last July of 2012. Cchlorine was the most popular one but it didn't do a damn good to me. The mold , the spores are all over my body. I experimented about 127 different kinds of reagents, cleaning, disinfectant, bacteriostatic bactericidal anti fungal anti everything both single combined cocktail or mixtures, tinctures etc.... It was hopeless. No matter how much supplements I take it would help for a day or two starts again. The bottom line is how to begin to find where the sources is coming from as I felt the crawlies wherever Im inside my house. I was not sure if it is coming from the windows from the outside it was maddening. I examine the carpets judiciously , then in every moldy part of the carpet I check the corresponding part from the ceiling. I found a lot of cracks up in the ceiling. I am renting this house. The painting of the ceiling strikes me very oddbecoz it is corrugated not a plain smooth type. I suspect my landlord have done this deliberately to conceal something. I borrowed a ladder sick as a dog I began spray painting the cracks. In my disgust I wrote on the ceiling. After I'm done the ceiling looks like a graffiti of multiple colors. I still felt like droplets of something on my head every now then./Every time I have seizzures difficulty breathing I cried almost every night. I surrender myself to Mother Nature. I prayed that if she wants me to die I am willing to go. I also prayed that I am exhausted pls. Guide me. Then one day I ran across one website that says Thieves oil. I went to the market to find the ingredients on how to make Thieves oil. One of them is eucalyptus that I could not find. Came home I thought the concept is similar to when I was young where we live in a farm where there is no electricity yet we used kerosene lamp. We lived using a kerosene lamp for more than ten years. So I made a lamp then fuel it with kerosene. I found an oil lamp at Salvation army converted it into a kerosene. I made a wick made of towel about half an inch in diameter not length but the width where its going to lit. How big of the fire it will emit should be thought of ahead of time. The lamp is lit continuosusly. I put it inside a clay pot to secure that my cats cannot knock it down. After I lit it I went outside do my chores while the smoke of from the lamp is engulfing the living room. I know its safe becoz that's what we have when I was a kid. I am a pro in making this stuff as my father taught me how to make them that he made me the designated light manager of our household. In about two hours I came in the lamp kinda died down. It was lit for the night that I never expected what its going to do. The website didn't say how to do it what is that you're going to find out. I lit it late in the afternoon , the following day when I wake up I saw a massive black dust everywhere, every single surface that I can tell. Basically what had happened the zoot from the lamp carbonized or carboxylized what was on the ceiling the floor the walls. I saw a massive fungal lines everywhere. Had its not for the carbon from the lamp I have no clue what state of infestation I was in. I shut down the air purifier the AC. The inside look likes holloween for me. I took my time have a coffee it was the most peaceful morning I have ever been. I fell on my knees sob on the floor. At long last the battle I won. It's been more than days now that nothing is crawling even when it rains. Today I took a blanket stand higher up under the lamp to carbonized my body. My scalp was riddled with mold for years. I cover my self inside with the lamp inside the blanket when a continuous popping sounds for about an hour. The mold spore are popping out. I think what had happened to the mold spore is since the spores is made of a filament that is hydrophilic/lipophilic, the carbon attach to the water molecule of the mold dropping out the oxygen out when the carbon combined. I made another three lamps to complete the whole entire house one in each room I made one with a long handle like a torch so I can reach the corners of the roof.
The lamp have a half gallon kerosene is still lit until now. My kitties are not scractching that much anymore. I am very happy celebrated my triumph with Mother's earth guidance. I am very grateul to the people here at earth clinic the reason why this is the place I chose to share this knowledge. I am happy if you have a comment or a question feel free to contact me at Lakambini19(at)yahoo(dot)com.
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.
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=======
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:
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:
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.
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!
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 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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
