Mold and Black Mold Exposure

Sodium Percarbonate

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.

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.

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.

Lugol's Iodine
Posted by Bill (The Philippines) on 09/09/2018

Hi Epeach...

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:

Lugol's Iodine
Posted by Bill (Philippines) on 09/13/2018

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.

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!

Re: Juicing and Mold Detox: Use green juices. If you need to sweeten them use carrots because beta carotene strengthens your immune system. The key is OXYGEN!!! OXYGEN!!! OXYGEN!!! Juices have oxygen and enzymes needed to boost your immune system. You will also cancer proof your body. RAW SALADS will help alot along with a 90% raw organic food diet with plenty of juices. Dead enzymeless food feeds all disease and mold. Go easy on fruit also. BARLEYGRASS JUICE POWDER is nothing short of amazing with thousands of enzymes and OXYGEN going to work on molds and fungi.

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.

William C,

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!

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Deny Air and Water

I'm so happy to find your site and know I'm not alone in my suffering of the past 10-15 years. During recovery from a past surgery, I was able to study more and found there were over 20,000 different mold types with no exact cure for them all. The World Health Organization says that mold health problems can only be cured by natural medicine methods. The many stories shared on this site will benefit so many sufferers.

There is the common recommendation of mold removal frequently using bleach related methods, but here's another fact. Mold is a plant. Plants will die without water or oxygen. Washing with bleach often kills the top of the plant, but not the root and it will grow back. Often repeated applications of bleach or some mold control sprays can go on for weeks or longer. If this "plant" could lose its water or air source, it has to die. In leaky basements, the mold grows on the concrete and wood. I tried sealing the moldy concrete floor with WD40. After two applications two weeks apart, the area has been mold free for years. Unfortunately the latest WD40 has changed its formula and no longer is effective.

BUT the idea works! The best substitute is Fluid Film. It's safe around food, etc., will not rot wood and has a pleasant smell. Simply clean off the mold, spray the area, scrub it lightly to work it into rough surfaces and re-apply. Touchup may be required in a few days. Because Fluid Film can be used as an automotive undercoating for rust, it sticks to vertical surfaces and seals from water exposure. With the roots sealed, the mold "plant" dies.

After posting this information on their website, the company sent me a huge thank you gift of promo goodies, and a local resort contacted me for more information.

Another suggestion along the same lines is aerosol auto paints to seal porous walls with surface mold. The paints are thin enough to seal rough surfaces, dry very quickly and are too smooth and hard for mold to grow on. I've also used engine oil on level cement surfaces. In my experience, I've never seen mold on old garage floors.

Hope this can be of help to those who cannot relocate.

Regardless whether it was a hair test or other that determined you have too much heavy metals, here is an interesting tie-in to niacinamide you can start immediately to help with that part of your problems.

It's from the post on Alzheimers just sent in today.

You can buy a big bottle of niacinamide form of B3 (not niacin! ) for about $5 anywhere.

Article is from late 2009, high dose niacinamide in lab mice bred for brain amyloid plaques:

The tubules are like highways inside cells. Dr. Green said that niacinamide is "making a wider more stable highway. " Alzheimer's disease breaks down the highway (tubules). But niacinamide prevents this from happening.

I've previously told you how the toxic metal mercury also destroys these microtubules, potentially causing Alzheimer's disease. So anything that can prevent the damage or reverse it is a huge discovery.

You could also directly bind loose mercury, easily the worst offender of all heavy metals in the body, into the completely inert HgSe which will be excreted using a good selenium supplement, meaning preferably the organic form found right in plants and nuts, selenomethionine:

Selenium is a potent chelator of mercury (it binds to it and removes it from the body). Mercury exposure can therefore lead to a selenium deficiency.

Selenium at 250 mcg per day should be used in any mercury chelation program. Selenium has an unusually high "binding affinity" for mercury, making it a vital part of the support protocol when detoxifying mercury from the body.

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 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.

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!

Dear Bill,

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.

Many blessings!

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).

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.

Hydrogen peroxide is definately a cheap remedy for some tough illnesses. Got Black Mold in my lungs from living in an apartment with unforseen mold under the carpet. Hot water heater blew in the 2nd month and the maintenance man (sent over by the slum lord) sucked the majority of the water out but installed 2 blowers under the carpet to dry it out. When I saw the mold I told him straight up, "That's going to blow Black Mold into the air and we could end up getting mold spores from breathing it" I'm sure he blew me off like he does all the other apartments he maintains because his lips weren't moving but he said to himself, "ugh, .... Another hypocondriac."

3 months later, I was extremely ill. Hadn't even considered black mold yet, due to on going esophogus problems for 15 years. The doctors said the only way to tell is to do the endoscopy at $750. I paid for the intial visit, was able to get on a $25. Month payment plan and when the time came to go at 6am, the receptionist wouldn't adhere to my agrreement due to the fact that the business department didn't come in until 9. I panic'd due to the fact that I felt a 2nd round of pneumonia approaching, and my lungs were only taking in maybe 20% of it's capacity. I did my research and found that the only way to survive a combo like this ( I have a fantastic nurse practioner that actually listens, and admits, she learns too) was to prepare myself. The first on-slaught of the pneumonia had to be covered by a single pill that costs $100. (something new?) I was sceptical. I don't trust pharmaceuticals. So, she gave me a $75. Discount coupon and I took it just in time, I guess, cuz I lived but still had the mold. It was growing and I was breathing less. My son-in-law was surfing the net for a cure for me. (Now that's a loving son-in-law), but, maybe he just wanted me out of his house!! Hahha He found a video of an old man showing the benefits of putting hydrogen peroxide in a nose sprayer and inhaling it 6 times down the hatch, at 6 times a day. We set my funderal plans aside (kids!!! ) and I recovered. That sweet son-in--law even helped me carry my bags to the car. That was 2 years ago. Still dealing with espophogus problems. My nurse practitioner treats me with respect and nearly reverence. I've been able to heal deadly diseases in my life, mine and others. Extraordinary. Hydrogen peroxide yes, .. for lots of illnesses.

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 everybody willing to read further. I had black mold where I stay which I tried to rid with spraying h2o2 on it, it just made a white foam but did not get rid of the mold, then I remembered Jim Humble claiming that sodium chlorite can kill any harmful organisms. What I did was sprinkle sodium chlorite then with a damp scotchbrite scrubbed it & so far so good & has not come back & I am so pleased.

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.

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 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.

Regarding FRESH JUICES, I am referring to blending FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, those will feed the body the NUTRITION that the MOLD HAS ROBBED US OF... Yes, CANDIDA, mold is a fungus, but you need MINERALS and you have to get it from fresh fruits and vegetables.

Also, you have to COLON CLEANSE and you have to TAKE A DIGESTIVE AID (the undigested proteins cause MCS). The digestive aid should be taken PRIOR to each meal. Try to find an ALL PLANT BASED digestive aid. The digestive aid will digest the mold and parasites that are feeding on the mold in the body... You may have to double your dosage of the digestive aid, I take two prior to each meal. My meals, again, consist of lots of plant based fruits and vegetables, especially GREEN LEAFY VEGETABLES because they are full of calcium. Lots of fatty protein based broths, soups and stews. Lots of bacon and egggs, hormone free because the HORMONES WILL FEED THE FUNGUS, and lots of coconut oil and olive oil because they are both ANTIBACTERIAL AND ANTIFUNGAL and they help to rebuild the body...

Good luck, we CAN HEAL, I'm much much better than I was... Trust me when I tell you that I was dying.

Posted by Faith (Forest Park, Ohio) on 01/31/2012

Baths, detox with epsom salts, baking soda, and hydrogen peroxide then alternate the baking soda with the acv. You also have to COLON CLEANSE the mold gets in the colon, do psyllium and bsm, one T. Psyllium and 1 tsp. Bsm. Do it regularly and sometimes substitue activated charcoal for the bsm. Also do GOOD BACTERIA, LOTS AND LOTS, bananas, homemade yogurt, homemade kefir, homemade kombucha, these helped me turn the corner... And prebiotics like oat bran, rice bran, HIGH FIBERS... AND LOTS OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF SEAWEED in your diet daily... It took a year before I was feeling well.... but all this is key to move the mold out of the body...

Hi Shatsi, If all else fails try IV vit c & if that is too expensive try liposomal vit c which is much cheaper & you can make it at home, on the net you can get info on how to make it. What I also do know is that vit c about the only thing that can kill mold in your body, but it is a problem to take high doses of vit c as it causes an upset stomach but with IV vit c you can tolerate doses of 100- 200 gr & with liposomal vit c 5 gr is equivalent to 50 gr of IV vit c. So try it you have nothing to lose.

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.

Hi! I am also a mold victim, and have got allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis that has no cure. I have found remedy for my brain fog though, and I feel ok regarding that nowadays. You are lucky if that is all u feel ;-) I take B12, grapefruit seed extract, vco, kelp, B complex, vitamine c, oxygen, neem, nettle (GREAT FOR ALLERGIES!) d3, quarcetine, lysine, larix, probiotics, magnesium citrate and dandelion for liver to cope w/ the toxins. I actually take much more stuff but this I took in the beginning and it helped w/ brainfog along with the moving out of the hell hole as well as the air purifier! Good luck.

P.S. Also Niacinamide.

Anti-Fungal Herbs and Foods

I am suffering from Toxic Mold Exposure and am severely ill. However, I have done a lot of research and contacted a lot of people over the last year and this is what I have found.

There is a toxicologist by the name of Dr. Thrasher. You can find them on the net for mold.

Also, for the the Ammonia, it works for some and not others. Remember it is a harsh chemical that will be soaked up by the skin, and if you have MCS it's just adds to your bodies toxic load. (you can use the non scented kind from the grocery store). Once a day for no more than 5 days. It's a hard thing to weigh. I personally won't do it.

As for losing hair, fungus on skin, etc. This can also be indicative of mold/fungus in the body. Detox may be required.

The most renouned mold doctors today are: Dr. Lisa Nagy, Janette Hope, Shoemaker, William Rae. They are the best in the field and have excellent protocals for detoxing the body.

There are specific Genetic defects that can cause a person to react so badly to mold, one of which is a gene MTHF genetic defect which does not allow the body to detox Environmental Toxins. Which can lead to mold poisoning susceptibility and MCS and other illnesses because you reach a "Toxic Load". Genetic testing can be done by Mold doctors to find out what genetic defects (if any) you are dealing with and how to work around them.

Do not remediate mold on your own, it will make you sick! It happened to me! Also, dont hire a cheap remediator, hire someone like This. Most local and cheap remeditors are horrible and dangerous. Go to FaceBook mold support forums and ask who is best.

Just thought I'd try to help.

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.

I live in South East Asia. It rains almost everyday. The walls of my house are always damp. Sometimes, our wardrobes would be covered with molds too. I would just wipe them away with dry cloth. But thank God none of us suffered from mold or fungal infections. I attribute this to our diet. I use onions, garlics, chillies, tumeric powder, tamarind juice and all other spices if necessary. I think these are the reasons why we are still healthy till today. Tumeric or tumeric powder is always used on skin rashes. Eucalyptus oil is also good on rashes and burns too, cos of its cooling and soothing effects on the skin which is immediate.

My daughter is a student and the house she shares is damp and full of fungus on the walls. Her room is the worst. When I went to pick her up for the Christmas holidays I took a plastic spray bottle of Borax and water (just put enough Borax in so that no more will dissolve). I sprayed the walls with it when I arrived and then wiped all the fungus off. After helping her pack I sprayed the walls again and just left them to dry. This was a last ditch attempt to make things better because the landlord would not do anything.

When I took her back after Christmas I didn't know what we would find but imagine my delight when we walked into her room to find not a trace of mould.

Thanks to all on this website who have written about Borax and how it kills fungus.

I hope this helps others in the same situation.

By the way, I live in the UK and it is impossible to buy Borax in any shop (even Boots). They are now selling something called 'Borax substitute' and no-one will give me a straight answer as to why they won't sell Borax. One assistant in Boots said that it was because old people used to put it in their eyes. Anyway, I eventually ordered a tiny amount from Amazon and to be honest you don't need a huge amount. Though one chemical company said they would sell it to my by the ton at a very good price.

Menthol, Thymol, Camphor, Ecualyptus, Tea Tree, DMSO
Posted by Robert (Naples, Florida) on 01/20/2008

Robert's Fungus Saga - Vicks Update

Part One: Feet

Q. Do the ingredients (camphor, eucalyptus, thymol, menthol) work?

A. I've applied the solution on my nails as well as to my entire foot to get rid of all the fungus that might eventually cause a reoccurrence. The results were obvious after 4-5 days: first, the athlete's foot symptoms between my toes rapidly got better and were healed in about a week. Then, at the seven-day point lots of skin started sloughing off all over my feet where the fungus was obviously in hiding -- including the heal callus. I was surprised to see so much sloughing of the skin around the base, sides and top of the toe nails -- this area apparently had been deeply affected by the fungus, but just looked like tough skin that I had become accustomed to expect. Within 2-3 weeks the unaffected new toe nails could be seen at the cuticle. Now, several months later, there is a clear line of demarcation between the old fungal nail, and the new clear nail. I expect that it will be 3-4 more months before all the old nail has grown out and gone.

Q. Is the formulation the right one?

A. After much research and playing kitchen chemist, I learned that coconut oil is a good anti-fungal as well as a great emollient. DMSO doesn't need to be at 25% concentration. 10-15% is sufficient. Oregano Oil is composed of Thymol and University of Western Australia research proved tea tree oil's anti-fungal capability, so I added it as well. The essential oil amounts are at least or a little more than what bio-chemists call the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC). The formulation I like and use now is:

Revised Formula
1 part Menthol oil
1 part Thymol oil or Oregano oil
1 part Camphor oil
1 part Lemon Eucalyptus oil
2 parts Tea Tree Oil
2 parts DMSO
12 parts Virgin Coconut Oil

There is probably a synergistic (i.e. harmonious working together) effect of anti-fungal herbs, which has been demonstrated in several studies. In one test of ten plant species whose oils were anti-fungal, researchers noted that "combinations of the anti-fungal essential oils increased their activity remarkably." In a similar study, researchers stated that "in all the oil combinations, the anti-fungal potency was found to increase over individual oils."

Part Two: Adult "Acne"

This is where the "saga" starts to get interesting. After my adolescent acne should have cleared up 35 years ago, it got slowly worse. All over the bearded part of my face, what appeared to be sacs of hardened oil under the surface of the skin had been forming nodules. These didn't get infected,' each just grew larger. Over the years I've seen dermatologists who said, because of my otherwise great health, "you're just a middle aged adolescent," blaming it on high testosterone, etc. The apparent acne problem continued and worsened.

I've seen doctors, dermatologists, pharmacists, herbalists, laser specialists, and spiritual healers. I've bought every acne ointment known to man. I took pills, vitamins, and herbs. I changed diet. I get plenty of exercise. Nothing worked. I had extensive surgery to correct the problem three years ago, and within 18 months it looked just as bad as before. As a public speaker and author in my profession, the skin condition was emotionally upsetting and stressful.
Having conquered toe nails, I started researching down the path that maybe the acne was caused by a fungus (although the symptoms didn't look like my feet). Was I surprised when I found:

" Tinea barbae is a superficial dermatophyte infection that is limited to the bearded areas of the face and neck and occurs almost exclusively in older adolescent and adult males. Symptoms include inflammatory, deep, kerion-like plaques and noninflammatory superficial patches and lumps resembling bacterial folliculitis. The hair breaks off below the skin surface. It is caused by several dermatophytes. Trichophyton species are most common. Infection of bearded skin may be the result of autoinoculation from tinea pedis or onychomycosis."

In other words, the mess on my face that had caused me so much grief and been misdiagnosed for decades was caused by the same fungus that gave my feet a problem. Apparently the dermatophytes enter the hair follicle (nails and hair are similar biological structures), then attack the sebaceous gland, feeding off the body oil; then the body's immune system reacts with scaring and hardening the facial oil, leaving an oil nodule. The dermatophytes then migrate to the next follicle, and eventually dozens of affected follicles link as a nodule the size of a pea.

Now it became obvious what had happened: The athlete's foot I got as a teenager went to my toe nails, and, because I was ignorant of the relationship of using a towel on my face that might have been used on my feet or crotch, the fungus got transferred.

Not a single dermatologist who examined my face ever bothered to ask the question: "Do you have toe nail fungus or athlete's foot!"

Using the same solution on my facial outbreaks as on my toe nails (the revised formula with coconut oil), the facial condition is clearing up. Just like with my feet, skin is sloughing off and the nodules are beginning to eject. This is the best result I've seen in years. I expect it will take a few months for the problem to be cured, as the fungus is down below the level of the base of the hair follicle in the sebaceous gland.

Part Three: Chronic Sinusitis

For the last 15 years I've had chronic sinusitis, post nasal drip, clogged nose, etc. I was constantly clearing my throat, and sometimes coughing. I snored a lot, which my wife didn't appreciate, and the snoring actually would wake me up in the middle of the night, leaving me tired in the morning. I seemed to catch colds more easily than before, but I attributed this to my very frequent plane travel.

Doctors prescribed antibiotics, but I they did not fully cure the problem and when I stopped the treatment, every symptom returned. (And I just don't like unnatural treatments.) Others said it was allergies.

I wondered: Could my sinusitis be a fungal problem? More exploring on the internet found the answer:

In 1999 Mayo Clinic researchers found the cause of most chronic sinus infections to be an immune system response to fungus, and that this may kick off a secondary bacteriological infection. It is not an allergic reaction, but an immune reaction.
Again, I felt betrayed by the medical profession. Why hadn't anyone told me this?

I went to the health and vitamin store to look for an anti-fungal nasal spray, and nothing met my requirements or budget ($10-15 for a one ounce bottle of ingredients seemed way out of line.) Here's the formula I "invented:"

1. Rinse out a 1 ounce nasal spray bottle
2. Add one eye-dropper (approximately 1 ML) of Oregano Juice (NOT Oregano Oil -it's too strong and will not dissolve in water)
3. Add a pinch of salt (approximately ½ ML) (Iodized salt is OK - iodine is a good anti-fungal)
4. Fill the rest of the sprayer with distilled water, and shake well until the salt is dissolved.

Spray as frequently as once an hour until symptoms subside. For me, this solution began working within an hour; most symptoms were gone in three days. And the price of the ingredients per bottle is just a few pennies.

If the oregano/saline solution is too strong for you, dilute in half with water. If you want, you can add a drop of eucalyptus oil with ½ ML of glycerin, (which will bond the oil to water). I now spray once or twice a day, just to prevent any recurrence.

A very dear friend, who is 75, has had awful sinusitis for years. He heavily cleared his throat every minute or two. I told him of this simple formula, and two days later he called me to say it was working. He then said with amazement: "I don't believe it, we've been talking for over 15 minutes and I haven't had to clear my throat once!"

There are articles and books that claim that some cancers are caused by fungus. If this is true, taking action on fungus early may be very beneficial in the long run. It's time we gave fungus a deeper analysis.

White Vinegar

5 out of 5 stars

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.

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.

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

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

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

Precious Robyn: So sad you are dealing with so much! (Cyber hugs to you! ) And, sorry I am coming to this conversation so late!

Yes, stay away from apple cider vinegar, even the very best brand, as it is fermented! For me, after my very recent mold exposure, ACV was one of the things I was using to treat the symptoms (I broke out in a horrible case of hives---excruciating! ), totally unaware I was only feeding the problem!

I also can not eat naturally fermented sauerkraut, for the time being. That is really killing me, because I love the stuff! (And it was one of the things I purchased to help with the hives! ) Also, have to stay away from beer & wine, for the same reason.

I have done several things, including biofeedback (L.I.F.E. System), Bio-Electric resonance therapy & chiropractic. These 3, I feel, have been key for me. I feel the bio-electric resonance has done wonders for the mold issue. Another therapy, which I do not have access to currently, is RIFE treatments. Any of the better frequency-based treatments should prove beneficial, IMHO.

The bio-feedback session pinpointed some of the major contributing factors in my health crisis, including the fact that vinegar was excaberating the problem. (I can use distilled white vinegar with no problem. Use it in laundry & for household cleaning with no side-effects.)

Also, far-infrared will help. I used a friend's Bio-Mat and I feel that helped me as well.

I hope you can continue to explore ways to settle your body down, but I dare say that it is a daily challenge, since you have no place that is really 'home'. I am so hurt for you.....Hang tough.....Some of the best ways to heal our bodies do not cost all that much......And prayer does help, too......

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!

Ammonia Chloride

Hi, I personally would not recommend taking Ammonia baths, particularly if you have Lyme. Ammonia is a neurotoxin left behind after killing Lyme along with Quinolinic Acid. I am very sensitive to Ammonia and when I get near an Ammonia bottle, I have head tremors. Most of us with Mycotoxin illness have faulty methylation due to mutations in our genes. Many of us already have too much Ammonia in our bodies because we have a faulty Ammonia and Sulphur detox ability. I would only use it to clean up mold on window sills or around the house, but remember our skin is one of the biggest organs and absorbs what we put on it.

Once you're exposed to black mold and your body has a reaction to mold/mycotoxins then it is best to avoid it forever! I have read about taking a bath in like a 1/4 cup of ammonia I would wear protection Eye goggles if I was to do that, but I think it is too risky to me. The best thing to do to save your health is move out. It is suggested strongly to avoid re-exposure since the may cause permanent problems. My doctor suggested we move out of our house which we did. I washed all my clothes in ammonia, wiped all the furniture down and threw away tons of cloth furniture. Take Choleystramine four times a day; it is the most effective mold binder in the states.

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.

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.

The best thing is Oxygen hydrogen Peroxide food grade it works. I also have been told the same thing- this is the reason I do not like Doctors and don't trust them if they give drugs it like they are throwing darts at the dart board at all the deferent drugs that the side effects are very harmful. hydrogen peroxide is natural it is in Honey the little bubbles you can see in the store shelves.

Hi. Is there any way of getting in touch with the author who wrote this note entitled "Anti-Fungal Herbs and Food?" She mentioned a toxicologist and I would love to get his name and website. My name's Celia and my email is springsnakes(at)gmail(dot)com. Thank you!

You are exactly correct. Your account is 100% accurate. Having worked in the supplement industry, I learned much about different supplements that were on the market (mostly for bodybuilding). Then my boss and I decided that we should bring in natural products as it is a growing market and it's important. Seeing all of the things that you listed is great. Oil of Oregano is one of the strongest natural anti-fungal products out there; an excellent choice.

What prompts me to write this reply is that I am just discovering that my current sickness is due to black mold (Stachybotrys). It is a mycotoxin which gives of potentially deadly spores. I moved into my parents basement in a transition from moving from one city to another. It was an easy way to move and have somewhere for all of my stuff :) This winter destroyed the past records for snowfall which means, a LOT of snowmelt. Basements everywhere were being flooded. Luckily, my parent's house, built in 1987, withstood any water from penetrating into the basement. BUT, black mold can still thrive as the ground is saturated with moisture.

My gf, who is very healthy and has a great diet like myself, has become oddly sick. Not just regular flu or cold symtoms, but odd uni-lateral pains throughout her arms and legs. Very odd. After doctors just gave her prescription strength drugs (which did nothing), she went to a naturopathic doctor. They figured something else was up, something viral. They gave her many natural products to take and said to stay away from a high-arginine diet. Since we both have a high protein diet for our gym lifestyle, arginine is a very abundant and common amino acid. Her blood work also showed that she had high amounts of creatinine in her blood and another test that was supposed to be between 20-120, she was at 300. I can't remember the test.... Something like C/K, looks for broken down protein in the blood. Hers was high, which is odd because she supplements with branched chain amino acids everyday. When I had this ephiphany tonight about black mold, I researched it. Sore throat and respiratory problems is a major part of black mold sickness. Both her and I have had this nagging sore throat for about a month, and nothing can cure it. ALSO I read that black mold can prevent protein synthesis, which means, it prevents her body from chaining amino acids together to make muscle protein! This could explain the reason for the high amounts of this broken down protein in her blood which could relate to the uni-lateral pains in her extremities.

So I guess my message is, if you have these symtoms for longer than 2 weeks and there seems to be no cure or you aren't getting better, look at your environment. Colds caused by a virus tend to be fought off by your body in 12-14 days, as the affected cells in the nose, nasal cavity, and throat get replaced every two weeks(ish). Colds caused by a bacteria, like strep throat, can be treated with an anti-biotic and can be greatly minimized within hours of taking the first does. However, fungi are a different breed, especially when it comes to black mold. You are constantly being bombarded by spores which continually weakens or suppresses your immune system, not allowing you to get better. LOOK INTO IT.

Thanks for reading, hopefully this can help other so they don't have to go through something like my girlfriend did!

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.

Ozone Treatment
Posted by Janet (In) on 10/09/2016

Robert Henry. I am glad you have narrowed down your ailment. Mold is 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.


Hydrogen Peroxide, Oil Pulling

2 years ago I was exposed to toxic mold in a building. I went to this building on a bi-weekly basis for 18 months and kept getting sicker and sicker. I was diagnosed with asthma (at a free clinic) and put on 2 meds. One for maintenance the other for emergency. My lungs became inflamed and I was using the inhaler constantly... I finally weaned myself off the inhalers and other meds. After doing research I did a cleanse with H2O2. It took me over 6 months to reach the full dose and then I reduced and am now maintaining at 22 drops per week. 3 months into the "detox" I also began oil pulling. My gums were receding and I had no energy. I bought 3 bottles of sunflower oil, within 2 weeks the sensitivity left my teeth and my gums began to reattach. I finally was regaining energy and I have not stopped either therapy, Now 2 times per week I use coconut oil, I love the taste and it seems to help my lungs stay clearer. I also inhale the H2O2 as shown on this site several times a day. My treatment started over 1 year ago. I refer many friends here and have even cured my dog of heartworms from your pet site suggestions. Thank you and please continue helping those of us who can't afford health insurance or doctors. It's nice to have alternatives to make ourselves.
