What Mold Illness Feels Like

Environmental illness, or mystery illness can look like many other things, and since most medical doctors are not trained to assess for it (or treat it), folks can go decades without answers.

MOLD: The #1 Environmental Illness

There are two different mechanisms of mold – There’s the allergy to the mold spores and then the mold produces toxins we call “mycotoxins”, which are very, very toxic.

Mycotoxins can spread and affect the immune system severely.

And it doesn't affect everyone the same, in the same exposure/building. There may be four people living in the house and only one person is sick.

Why Your Immune System Might Be Polarized and Causing Histamine Sensitivity

inflammation lyme Mar 04, 2021

Listen as Dr. Gail Clayton and Mimi MacLean, mom of 5 and Lyme Warrior, discuss the acid-base balance, blood chemistry lab values, diet and mast cell stabilization. 

You can find the podcast on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

Some main points discussed:

  1. One of the things that is really overlooked when stabilizing mast cells is the acid-base balance. This can be assessed by looking at your blood chemistry laboratory values of carbon-dioxide , sodium, and potassium. You want to see them pretty much in the middle of the reference range. High or low of any of these values may suggest an imbalance.
  2. Diet is very important. Whether you are following the Whole-30 or Auto-immune Paleo, your diet may still have to be modified further depending on what is going on with your gut and immune system.

Herbal Remedy For Inflammed Gums

inflammation Feb 05, 2021

As practitioners, our intake form has a section to go over a client's oral health, because oral health is an indication of overall health.

Questions we ask are:

  • How often do you brush?
  • Do you floss daily?
  • How often do you see a dentist?
  • Do you have any: amalgams, crowns, bridges, implants?
  • Have you ever had amalgams removed? Was it done by a biological dentist?
  • Do you have periodontal disease?
  • Are your gums inflamed or infected?

Chronic inflammation can come from a seemingly small area in the body. The fact is that many infections and chronic inflammation in the body come directly from the oral cavity. This needs to be addressed along with fixing the other things you find in your clients!
