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 danngann@att,net. Love your site!!!!!!!! Ask all to pray for us, and for all victims of toxic mold.

For Debbie with fungal mold problems: please do not try ACV as it contains mold.Vinegar has many health benefits and most people can fight off the amounts of mold found in apple variety, but you sound like you have plenty in your system. I am fighting many mold issues and parasites since the hurricanes (Still!). Please try the Borax! Use bottled white vinegar if you wish, which does not contain the trace common vitamins that ACV does nor the mold. I'm still trying to figure this stuff out and appreciate your tips, I'm excited about the VCO, have tried caprylic acid but the spoonfuls of unrefined coconut oil seem more effective! Good luck to you and your son, God/dess bless.

How long will it take to detox from exposure to mycotoxins? I've recently vacated my mold-infested apartment and have started taking essential oils, exercising regularly, and eating a low sugar, anti-yeast diet. My main symptoms are tingling, shaky arms and hands, muscle cramps, extreme fatigue, and chronic sinus infections. Over the last week symptoms have lessened slightly. I hope it will keep improving. Also, I left my apartment as soon as the mold was discovered (it was behind a wall and as soon as the area was exposed my symptoms kicked-in full force). I grabbed some clothes and ran. Is it safe to go back for my bed spread and sheets? Can they be salvaged by a hot wash? I don't want this to follow me.

There is a little known G. P. Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker in Maryland on Chesapeake Bay who has been treating mold and other neurotoxin -exposed victims since the late 1990s! He runs several websites:



If you have one or more of these unexplainable symptoms, you may have been exposed to a biotoxin. Our research in biotoxins began almost 10 years ago, and during that time we have treated over 5, 000 patients with Biotoxin-related Illness. Our cutting-edge work has led to the development of an a brand new on-line screening test which can be completed in about 20 minutes. (Unfortunately, this test is NOT free. )


Since he's got several days' reading up on those sites, not including his several 300-500-page books, plus videos you can watch, maybe a snapshot of his work, his findings & the treatment protocol would be better first. It's CSM (cholestyramine, an Rx item):


The main first thing to do always is to get out of harm's way by vacating any known mold source. A 2nd clear warning given among all this info is any unwell person is to stay away from any "moldy" foods. This would include anything from small rot spots on fruits to blue cheese and even Apple Cider Vinegar.

Here is one site which mentions Shoemaker, and which claims some kind of peach tree extract works to pull out the mold neurotoxins:

Here's another one with what looks like a lot of real info, or a complicated protocol to follow:

As far as salvaging your bedding, I don't know if you also mean the bed, which until the place is thoroughly cleaned up and defogged for days with either MMS (chlorine dioxide) or ozone, means it'll be thoroughly tainted. To prevent a really long post here, there's got to be scores of pest removal/mold remediation companies either online or in the Yellow Pages. You could call them or e-mail and ask each how EXACTLY they gas a contaminated building once the moldy parts are removed and replaced. I believe they call it 'tenting', and it's similar to the way they gas out termites and cockroaches.

This message is for the first post by Grant of Ontario. Did you take oregano oil as a tincture, pill or some other form? You mentioned you mixed it with Frankincense but I was wondering how and it what proportions. Thanks for clarifying.

We found mold in the house we just moved into 2 months ago and all of us have been having health problems.

I was researching for holistic ways to deal with mold and came across your post. What brand of essential oils do you recommend?

And what proportions of Oregano, Frankincense, Clove, Cinnamon, Rosemary, Lemon, and Eucalyptus do you use in your capsules?

What do you use in the diffuser?

Replied by Debee

Be sure to use the right diffuser when using oils for mold. Putting moisture in the air is not helping your mold problem, but encourages growth! You need a pro diffuser and pure essential oils that kill the mold along with treating the area and than removing the source professionally. I hope this helps.

I read about non-standardized essential oregano oil being the best to keep the Synergy of all of the components intact. I read about the leaf of the oregano oil not being sufficent with the amount of constituents being unavailable is available and leaf and flower oil.

Where do I get a good unstandardized leaf AND flower oregano oil so that I can mix and spray in my home?

I have used GSE in the past for candida but I'm looking forward to using it for other things. I live where mold is a problem so I make a mixture of 20 drops GSE, 2 cups water, a few drops tea tree oil and a few drops lavender. I spray it on walls, furniture and it works great. I also put some in my dishwater-where I live there's no water lines to it's just rainwater in a big tank. The GSE helps with any bugs that may be there.

Hydrogen Peroxide

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.

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.

Hello and thank you for your information. I would like to start the Peroxide inhaling. How do you do this and what is the mixture? Regards

Replied by Lera
(Formerly St Petersburg, Fl)

Gail, Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. We moved across the country and I neglected to get on this site for a period of time.

I bought a bottle of saline solution and emptied the contents. Then I refilled the bottle using a 1 drop of 35% food grade peroxide to 11 drops of distilled water ratio.

After filling the bottle I lean forward and inhale as I spray the mist in the back of my mouth. I do this several times and inhale deeply. Within minutes I cough up mucus then feel much better for the rest of the day.

In flu season I regularly tilt my head to one side and spray a few pumps of the solution in my ear. I then turn my head so it runs down inside. After the bubbling stops I drain onto a tissue and do the other side. Since doing this I have not had the flu or even a bad cold. My husband, a skeptic, now asks for me to do his ears at the first sign a cold or the flu.

Hope this helps, and again I apologize for taking so long to respond.

Find an ortho molecular doctor or an integrated medicine doctor that will give you high dose (30 to 100g) of IV-vitamin C or H2O2. My son had toxic levels of mold VOCs, ochratoxin and trichothencenes. Must use C or HP because they will break up the biofilms that toxins (and microbes) are sequestered in... kinda like chelation treatments but C and HP is better than EDTA.

HI U JIMMY, , , , , , , , Glad your son is doing well with the Vit C I. V. , but your post is misleading as each one of the IV's you mentioned are for different situtations. I have been doing the three that you mentioned and others for the last 5 years. The mold infection will just come back if you do not kill it at the source. I have been down that trail when my truck's A/C had a mold colony in it. I've had over 60 EDTA Chelations to clean out my blood vessels and heavy metals. We do HP I.V. to avoid the flu and colds. Vit C I.V. we do for just general good health and my current cancer situtation. =====RH========

Repeating the mold remedies.

Living in mold, working in mold.

Wildly different. Varied. Although not always. The shape changer qualities of this illness. It is nearly supernatural.

  • Joints ache
  • Vision blurry
  • Raging
  • Depression
  • Boils
  • Rashes
  • Parasites
  • Mood swings
  • Bacterial vaginosis
  • Urinary tract, blockage, infections
  • Acne
  • Broken nails
  • Hair loss
  • Mental disorders
  • Nightmares
  • Sleep too much
  • Sleep not enough
  • Disrupted sleep
  • Sleep, yet feeling exhausted
  • Ear pressure
  • Swollen lymph
  • No appetite
  • Weight, cannot lose it, cannot normalize it
  • Skewered thinking
  • Circular thinking
  • Abnormal mind, devolving brain function
  • Losing speech
  • Reaching for words
  • Abnormal impact from the slightest changes
  • Sensitive to environmental toxins
  • Food allergies and sensitivities
  • Cannot breathe
  • Coughing, lots of phlegm, or a dry cough
  • Gut issues, 100s of them
  • Weakness
  • POTS
  • Candida

This list can include just about anything, not always all the things. They can shift. Be gone and reoccur. So hard to nail down.

Ted's best instant relief. Ammonia spray. Ammonia in water. If you are afraid or unfamiliar with it. It is worth an experiment. Testing his ratios on the inside of the arm. 5% ammonia to 95% borax water. Apply a few dabs to inside wrist possibly.

If you want to reduce ammonia in the body, a quick fix is butyric acid. This remedy seems scary, but...

Us older people remember Grandma stripping wax off floors with ammonia. It cleans, it sanitizes. In correct amounts it heals. It does not smell great. But it dries scentless. The remedies are listed in Ted's Mold chapter.

Thoughts on removing or fixing reoccurent issues. Topically.

Lotion, buy a nice organic lotion. Add some to a jar, reduce a few drop of ammonia, I stick to 5%. Sometimes less. Add 1/4 tsp sodium molybdate. To 2 oz of lotion. 1/8 tsp magnesium oil, optional. 200mcg of selenium yeast. Apply to inside wrist. Or fingernails to test. If it is a mold derived issue you will see improvement. These minerals get depleted so fast in mold exposures.

Deirdre's video, for colloidal silver inhalation for lungs, a great tool, as is teds ammonia spray.

Emulsifying out some toxins,

Relief for genital mold issues. Milk of Magnesia, in a jar for rashes applied after wiping. I add a little castor oil. Shake.

Ted's topical wipe, 1/2 water, 1/2 apple cider vinegar. 2 capfuls of hydrogen peroxide. Applied.

Emulsifying out anything, teeth, skin, baking soda paste, applied, let dry, rinse.

Bentonite clay. Wet to sticky mud texture. Apply, dry with hair dryer. Rinse. 3x.

What my eternal question is, what opens this door, this candida and mold problem?? Grandma did not have these issues. Rarely.

We are all inundated with all this mystery. If not mold. Autoimmune disease, PCOS, endometriosis, infertility, depression, heart disease, Parkinson's, myriads of digestion problems, food allergies, candida. 1000s of rare problems have become commonplace, new ones emerging daily.

Stress blamed for all the inexplicables.

Observationally, low vitamin D in mothers seems a huge factor.

Dr Lonsdale's work with thiamine points to a great deal having to do with it also.

Vaccinations, the ingredients adjuvents are poisons, aluminum, DNA not our own, derivatives of animals, mercury. Injecting them, where we have no way process them out. Through digestion there is a hope our bodies will recognize toxins and pass them out. With injection there is no process. The vitamin K shot at birth, offers nothing yet opens the tight weave of the blood brain barrier to invite more toxic mess beyond this natural defence. Being synthetic k make it crazy dangerous.

Silver tooth fillings

Foods modified to destroy farm pests, insects. Eaten by us

Glyphosates sprayed on crops, to dessicated them uniformly, brings insecticide right to your gut.

Fluoride, human destruction in every treated glass of water from our faucets.

Not all the answers, but we have to be able to get on our feet to recover or take the steps that are required to recover.

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. RAW FOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

How did it work out for you? Did you find a solution?

I wanted to recommend to you Food grade Hydrogen Peroxide, 35%.

It will eliminate EVERYTHING that is wrong in your body, but also protect the good cells. It MUST be diluted properly however before use externally or internally.

You only take 1-2 drops of 25% to an entire glass of water twice a day. It has changed my life.

Lugol's Iodine

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!

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:

16 Health Benefits of Resveratrol

Replied by Epeach

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!

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.

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.

To Bill

I have systemic Candida. Have now learned the cause is acidosis. When I did the Iodine, my Thyroid swelled and I had hair loss. I do have two nodules.

Replied by Bill

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.

Please look up Oxine. It's a product they use to clean up mold in ductwork. It was recommended to me to use in a humidifier in my chicken coop (so the bird will inhale the mist). 2 nights and no more respiratory rattles. It's about $30/gal and use 6 ounces/gal in the humidifier. Just me here, and I'm no doctor, but if I had a respiratory thing and knew I had mold, I'd inhale it. I would also spritz down everything with it--it disinfects very well. If you're gonna die anyway, you may as well try something that is proven to work in poultry without adverse side effects in the hens. Mold is pernicious--a mere 'cleaning' won't eradicate it.

My workplace flooded. After a week, they let us in to remove important/personal items. I had a stack of documents w/ red mold growing on them that I had to box up to send to be dried. I most certainly was exposed to mold of all sorts. How do I make sure I don't get a reaction? I'm sure some moldy items are now in our new location; don't know that there's any way to prevent that. I have wiped down all the surface that I can, but I can't control the other folks. What should I do to protect myself and detox what has already entered me?

The only way that I know of to kill the mold/ spores. mycotoxins is ammonia . You must wiped down your stuff with water and ammonia, Wash your clothes with some ammonia. I have read about using thieves oil in a humidifier for kills spores, however I haven't seen the research behind it.

I wanted to say that if people have extremely chronic respiratory or nervous conditions, they ought to find out if they are living or working in a moldy building. Nothing cures that but getting out or fixing the problem in the house!

8 days ago two small, painful, splinter-looking bumps appeared just under my chin. To help the foreign particles escape, I poked a small hole in each. Instantly I recalled my toes* and sought to ward off infection... applying 3% H202 on and around. OMG!!! Second Degree burn from the bumps to the base of my chin and two areas of my neck. No reaction from 3% ever before.

*5 months ago both big and little toes became extremely infected... one 1/2 hard the other 1/2 gushy - and they really hurt. After 3 rounds of anti-biotics my toes still aren't quite right. Approx. 40% of each big toe remains numb. Forget standing for more than an hour or two... makes the toes scream!

First I thought I'd picked up Scabies. Nope. Then found a site called Morgellans and the Federal Government's Center for Disease Control. Talk about depressing! Kept looking. Parasites? Something is coming out of my skin... nasty looking too, especially under 30-times magnification! Rid Worm by Hartz (smile) didn't do anything and this seems to be getting worse.

While I check in on this site periodically (found numerous treatments here already when medical field left me desperate), it wasn't until early this morning I found my way back here. And boy did I come running back! Check out the Image Bank at drfungus.org. Yep! This seems the most likely fit to my symptoms... could be wrong though but worth a try.

I believe my home is sick. Mold in the bath room seemed contained behind shower wall. Kitchen sponge doesn't mold when I leave it full of soap to dry out. Other usual precautions when living in an old, moldy home. It gets worse. Two dogs have pee'd on my kitchen and living room carpet so many times that I've literally went nuts 3 times ripping out carpet... swore I wouldn't replace until they were gone. Finally this year... Fidos are gone - ruining my son's apartment carpet now.

Anyway... though I'd scrubbed all the yukky stuff from the sub floors... a dark gluey substance remained behind in numerous places - nothing I could think of touched it. I've just been throwing area rugs here and there to hide.

Was going to brush my hair - to check if scalp was red, bumpy, etc. There were things growing on my brush! Upon magnificatin, no doubt some form of mold has completely taken over when I wasn't looking. So here's I am!

Not really thinking, I picked up an area rug and poured H202 on the mysterious black tar/glue substance. Ahh, the trusted bubbles went to work. Within one minute I could see white spores beginning to appear from the blackened floor. Couldn't help but notice some of the disgusting particles I keep finding on my skin is also in this bubbling puddle of burn-the-damn-house-down mess. What is in the ceiling? Behind the walls? Under the other floor coverings? Ughhh!

http://aromatherapy4u.wordpress.com/2008/08/05/974/ has a doctor claiming Baking Soda kills Cancer which is really Yeast/Fungi. What the hell? I've already this in my home thanks to Earth Clinic! Rubbed it all over, head to toe... letting the crumbs fall where they may. Appears the mold on the floor will be much easier to remove than the re-dried mess the H202 left behind. Of course I'll be needing a Haz-Mat suit!

Hey, the burning itch hasn't bothered me in a few hours and one of my big toes is beginning to have feeling again!

No doubt will try many of the great ideas I've read this morning from all of you. Thanks! Oh... I'm pretty sure it is the Systemic Candidiasis I'm up against. Maybe I won't have to watch all my skin and hair rot off only to welcome the finalle of painful death.

Really folks, take a look at drfungus' "Clinical" pictures of Fungi/Yeast. The medical communities around the globe have no excuse for no education or treatment. I take their silence as a personal attack on all of us who have ever had, have, and will have to suffer from any type of fungi. Accountability is long over-due every where I look up, for this and for that. Thank God we've still got one another!"

How do I keep this out of my eyes? The yeast over-growth inside of me is apparently on the march and I've got white particles coming out of my skin and my eye socket tissues aren't exempt. Several times I've felt a pain/burn in an eye and upon looking I've got what now appears are small spores penetrating the actual eye ball... or maybe they're coming out of my eye balls!!!!

Blindness can be one of the end-effects!!! HELP!

Hello Rene, Google SSKI (potassium iodide) and pull up one on Tahoma Clinic. SSKI was the first thing used to treat systemic candida. Dr. Wright has some excellent information on SSKI, how to use it, and what it does. Cutting out sugars & syrups from your diet also goes a long way toward getting rid of it. Please don't make the mistake of replacing sugar with aspartame (nutri-sweet) as it is a neurotoxin & damages the brain & central nervous system. Stevia is a safe substitute if you just must have everything sweetened.

I am living in an apartment with toxic black MOLD.... waiting to MOVE....taking colloidal silver daily in EYES...nose... ears and ingesting daily. I have been having respiratory problems...is there anything else you can recommend I do besides the silver and staying out as MUCH as possible? I am troubled with muscle spasms and pain in my head and shoulders and neck and heart. I have been here for 9 months...not certain of when I can MOVE. Thanks!

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.

Replied by Steve

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.

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!

I would urge you to look at borax for mold removal effective for the dwelling and for your lungs upon ingesting. I would expect severe detox symptoms because of your situation and so I would start very small. I have linked just one ec experience but there are many. https://www.earthclinic.com/remedies/borax10.html

Mold Removal Remedies
Posted by Grant (Huntsville, Ontario, Canada) on 05/07/2012

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.

Hello Grant, I appreciated your posting on this matter and would like to discuss other possibilities of keeping moulds out of the house.

To all other sufferers I would suggest the following:

1/ identify the type of mould in your habitat (house, appartment, office, etc)

2/ inform yourself, try find as much information as possible about that precise mould: where it comes from, how does it develop, what does it need to thrive like humidity % in the room, heat, cold etc and also what it doesnt like, for example extreme heat or extreme cold

3/ Remove the mould out of your house... Not only treat it but remove it (like that woman from England who washed ALL the walls with borax not just the piece where mould was present). Keep your house clean of dust and dirt and allow fresh air into your house at all times. Keep an eye especially on your bathroom under the sink, under and behind the toilet under the bathtub, the showercubicle. In your kitchen under the sink and definitely the fridge, more accurately the sealing plastic... Moulds looove hiding in the ridge, same for the washing machines

As to which ingredient to use... I was just browsing the internet and stumbled on information about something called 'active oxygen' which seems to be related to peroxide and ammonia (check wikipedia 'active oxygen')

4/as to how remove it from your bodies: WHAT you use and HOW MUCH you use , it will depend on each INDIVIDUAL. Also here I'd suggest to first have the organs checked which have to process any type of medication you choose to use. The liver, the pancreas, spleen, heart, ... All these organs as well as the immune system have to work hard to keep your body running swiftly under normal circumstances so imagine how much harder they have to work when your body is compromised by some illness. In consequence probably the first good advice would be to avoid further toxins (such as alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, drugs, frying oils etc) in order to allow your organs to do their job properly which is to keep your bodies clean of toxins. Second, try going for a walk or a bicycle ride somewhere where you can breathe in pure clean air at least 1/2 hour every day.

In reference to the ammonia bath: ammonia at 3% is used in swimmingpools to keep the water free of moulds. So probably also good ingredient to clean your kitchens, bathrooms, washing machines, fridges and also windows and windowsills.

Good luck to y'all! I'm going back to my research on 'active oxygen'

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!
