Mold exposure is likely more common than we realize. It is often found indoors after leaks or water damage occur. It is often challenging to confirm mold exposure in homes because it often hides behind drywall, growing hidden from sight.
As mold grows, spores are released into the air and circulated through vents and ducts in the home. These spores are then inhaled by the people living there.
Alternatively mold may be ingested directly by eating certain foods, such as corn, oats, wheat, peanuts, cottonseed, rye, barley, and coffee.
Mold exposure can have toxic and damaging effects on health. Symptoms can include:
Testing & Remediation:
Work with a functional medicine doctor to assess what kind of mycotoxins you may have in your body. A urine mycotoxin test is usually administered, though others may be as well. Treatment will vary depending on which mycotoxins and what levels are detected.
