Once we are all out of the house for a while we start to feel a little better… Please help what do I do!!!! Hi Angela, You will need to work with your landlord and find a good remediator to clean up the place.
Hi Dr. Jill I was just wondering if molds can grow from behind the walls? If so, how do we detect it? Please reply as soon as you can. Yes, mold is commonly hidden behind walls if there has been leaks. I had blood testing done this week for mold toxins and I am not sure if they tested me for black toxic mold.
All the blood testing shows that I have low levels of mold in the blood. I live in a home with mold present in my wall which is black in color, yet I have not had it remediated due to cost. I am on a Paleo diet to help with detox. It has helped but the symptoms continually occur throughout the day. Hi Joel, I am not sure which test showed mold in your blood as that is highly unlikely, however, we can measure the immune response to mold. I agree that the paleo-grain-free diet is a good option as many grains are contaminated with mold and will make you feel worse.
Wish you the best in healing! Dr Jill, Are you saying that the blood tests are not conclusive in determining the level of mold in the body? How is the immune response to mold measured? I appreciate your help in the search for improved health as I have been struggling with the symptoms you mentioned on your website. Thank you Joel. We are treating Chronic inflammatory Response syndrome CIRS a genetic-based immunologic reaction to mold, not the mold itself.
Dr Jill, Thank you for your reply. I will read all the information possible to learn how to improve my health. I got really sick, fatigued, my hair is falling out and my nails are a mess.
If it is from the mold what will my biopsy and blood work show that it is mold sickness. Jill I been dealing with toxic mold and fungi infestation over a year now. I have all the symptoms including vision problems and parasite. I dont know what to do I have loss myself and personality. This week blood as coming out my eyes,nose,and ears this week. The parasites are eating through my body and skin. I told my doc over and over again that he need to run tests. Last time I went my throat and nose was irritated.
Plz help Turn Me Out (Acapella) - Kathy Brown - Turn Me Out (Vinyl). Please find a doctor who will take your concerns seriously and help you by making a diagnosis. Pumpkin; I just read your story above — I too am suffering and knowner one seems to listen.

Most importantly — get away from the mold. Get you and your family and pets out! Sleep in a car if you have to…. Pitch a tent in your yard….
Just get out. I never found this help because I could not afford to travel and see a Shoemaker doctor. I am going through the exact same thing. Until a professional came to my home and told me I had toxic mold and needed to remove my children and I ASAP my whole family thought I had lost my mind This whole thing has caused me severe4 depression.
My home is being burned to the ground next month. Thank you, Dr. Carnahan, for the medical advice you have provided. I am just wondering if i start treating myself with the treatment options based on this site information without knowing the specific type of mold i have been exposed to will it be to no avail. Thus, should I seek to have the mold in the house tested or is there a medical test that a doctor can administor to me that will tell just that the type that I have in my system?
What is the specific title of the type of doctor that can help me one that specializes in mold exposure? I moved to the East Coast September for a new job. I have had 3 upper respirator infections, which is unlike for me. The third one is the worst, seems more like the flu but I had a flu shot since living here. I work in a very old building. It was found to have L? In the water. I was tested but not infected. I live in the exposed basement of a very old house.
Please help, what should I do and in what order. Doctor Jill, thanks for sharing all of this information. I noticed mine droops more on the left around my mouth area and I and I seen online other people reporting this symptom, as well. Also my liver enzymes were elevated and my breath and urine have an odor. I got sick after a pinch with a used needle! It states with flu like symptoms diarrhea and nausea that lasted a month!
I loose almost 40 pounds at once looking like a skeleton. I thought I had aids but I took a hiv test and it came out negative. Whatever I have is inffeccious because my wife has the same symptoms! I have eye floaters inside my eyes and a throat phlegm that never stop coming out also my muscles are twitching hard and I have a lound ringing noise inside my ears andy nails are falling and a lot of pain on my stomach with noises on the inside ect ect!! Can it be a fungal systemic infection???? Please reply.
Hi Mario, You may have some other infectious disease but fungal infection is less common unless you are immune compromised for another reason. Hello Dr. Or more importantly how do we convince the insurance companies to get these done? Hi Nick, Conventional medicine is still 30 years behind the times in recognizing mold-related illness. While I am all for less expensive testing and treatment you will not find it easy to get insurance coverage for the most cutting edge diagnostic information.
You may have to choose what your health is worth to you as insurance should never be a measure to dictate the best testing or treatment for your optimal health. Any oxygen therapy? I was,exposed to stachybotris aspergillus cladosporium, and penicillium, on my job as a Federal Ranger with the Fish and Wildlife Agebcy, due to a faulty air conditioner installation. The condensation was pouring behind the walls instead of out doors. I suffered tachycardia arrhythmia heart attack, heart surgery, seizure symptoms, kidney stones, renal mass right kidney, kidney removal, anxiety, depression, IBSD, random vomiting, oh the gifts that keeps taking goes on and on.
The air quality report clearly defined what I was exposed to. Those vastness at workman comp doing all they can to deflect from responsibility. I am not sure what to do. I started a new job where the office is located in the bottom of an older home. My office is enclosed under the stairs and across from the bathroom. In December I caught a strange flu and have since recovered all except for my Eustachian tubes which became chronically plugged.
I have been seen twice and each time they see no infection so I am given Sudafed, Flonase, natural sinus products etc. I ended up talking to the lady I replaced a friend who told me that the same exact thing happened to her with her having to have tubes put in to fix her ears.
She also mentioned that she suspected it might be from the septic overflowing twice and not being professionally cleaned. Is there a test I can take to prove to my boss that this may be the issue. Or some swab test? Any help would be appreciated. I was diagnosed by Dr. Brewer in KCMO at the end of and am approaching my third month of treatment.
I really need to pay more attention to what is going in my body. Thank you so much for writing, and being one of the wonderful docs dedicated to learning more and treating those of us who have been ill for so long. Hi Sher, Thanks for taking the time to comment on my article! I know how difficult it can be to heal from mold exposure and I sincerely wish you the best in your healing journey!
Thank you so much for your article. Our family got sick from a house that had hidden moisture problems and toxic mold. We are thankful to be in a safe home and aware of the importance of fresh, clean air. Andrea Fabry has been a help and a blessing! I need advise… If you are moving from an unclean or mold inhabited environment into a clean one.
This is my biggest fear. As we are in the process of purchasing our first home. And am so concerned. Any advice? Hi Dora, If you were truly in an environment that had mold which was affecting your health, you need to leave all porous materials and not bring them to the new space — this would include books, clothing, paper etc.
I know this is hard but if you were sick in that environment and bring these things with you, they can continue to affect your health. My advice is leave everything that is porous and start over.
This is why it is extremely imoprtant to call in a professional drying company ASAP after any unusuall amount of waterwasher, dish washer, sink overflow, broken water pipes, roof leaks, etc! Thanks for the article. It took me 25 years to find an accurate diagnosis for CIRS. Genetic testing was the key as the best doctors could not solve the edema question regardless how much my health improved. I did not give up working on my health as much as I could.
God lead me in a providential way here in Alabama to discover Dr. Berndtson in Chicago!!! That is how I would encourage others who seem to have such a variety of symptons. Dont give up. Thanks for bringing more to light. Hi Rachel, Thanks for taking the time to comment! I am glad you are on the path to healing… curious was edema the main symptom you noticed after mold exposure CIRS?
Blessings Dr Jill. B for the same issue! Is there any way I can get in touch with you to discuss what methods have helped you? I know each patient is unique, but just wanted to get your two cents. I live in Chicago and have been seeing Dr. B for a few months now. I noticed edema because my overall health would improve with exercise, nutrition and of course much water.
But why would the water not seem to be the answer? Later, as I got the genetic testing and realized my liver does not get the message to more or less use the water correctly, I knew more and more water was not the answer. So for me the edema is from the genetic issue but not from the direct mold toxin exposure. Usually if I have a fall I know that I was exposed maybe a couple days before. The cerebrum is affected by the toxin traveling through the blood brain barrier and so the imbalance.
It could be mold exposure. Thanks for the question. I have needed a chat on this as I have no one in particular who inquires and I am trying to learn more about myself and encpurage anyone else. I am in the beginning stages of diagnosis and confirming the source of mold toxicity testing being done today at work. Getting my doc, that admitted he knows nothing about mold toxicity, on board with my certainty about having CIRS is slow and difficult. After reading the small excerpt about diet it yet again confirmed another piece of this puzzle for me.
It took me a bit to. So now i am on the difficult task of eliminating grains as much as possible. This article will be shared with my doc. Also, question…to check for the gene, which test is it? Would like to request my doc orders it. I may just ask for a referral to one of you two docs and have it taken care of by you all. Hi Jessica This is a difficult and daunting journey to healing but I admire your courage and persistence!
Taking charge of your health will really pay off in the end. You might also want to have him check c4a levels which if elevate, often correlate with mold exposure and will go down as your health improves. In addition, get on a grain-free, mold-free diet asap as that will help tremendously.
Warmly Dr Jill. Thank you. I have been experiencing the same episodes. I have been living in a mold infested home for the last five years and I have become very weak achy and fatigued and have so many of the symptoms everyone has from biotoxins. I am curious to know what your outcome was and what you did to get better, being it is almost three years later now.
Kristina, from Westmoreland County, Pa. I began seeing Dr. Keith Berndston in Chicago a Shoemaker-approved doctor for my condition. B; acupuncture, Chinese herbal regimens, diets, etc — but saw no results.
My family is positive that there is bad mold down there, you can just smell the mold infestation. Anyway, I went on Cholestryamine to bind the toxins for 2 straight months. Also used Dr. Note that I moved out of my house and settled into a new, clean apartment while I was on the regimen too — Dr. B said this was the most important step and I agree. After seeing little results, Dr. However, both Dr. Do you think this is plausible? I wonder if Charcoal and a strict diet would help again?
When I was on cholestryamine, I sometimes cheated alcohol on weekends and occasional bread. I also read that Cholestryamine only works for certain strains of mold, while Charcoal is recommended by Dr. Joseph Brewer along with his own nasal spray formula. What do you think? Joseph Brewer has done fascinating work with mold toxins residing in the sinus and gut; I also experience a constant runny nose and sinus problems. Again, thank you so much for the article.
Please know that people like us appreciate your knowledge and attention to this condition! I also think treating sinus colonization with antifungals and biofilm disruptors is essential if you continue to have positive urinary mycotoxin testing. Dr Jill. So everything points to mold. Wish I could afford a urinary test to confirm! Hi James, For sinuses work with your doctor and a compounding pharmacist to combine an anti fungal solution Ampho-B, nystatin, itraconazole or fluconazole and a biofilm disruptor into a nasal spray or solution for rinse.
For best results, the sinuses should be rinsed with Nettipot or saline sinus rinse prior to application and the biofilm product should be separate from the anti-fungal. Unfortunately I cannot give out specific prescription medical advice on the blog.
Best wishes in healing! Your problem is very serious and you have the exact same issues my partner and I are having. I recommend you quickly get off the Cholestryamine, this product is incredibly dangerous and has been banned in Germany. This focuses on the gut, the mycotoxin are in your cells and this will never help solve this and actually gums up your ability to digest and heal your gut.
My partner is now suffering from Neuropathy severe pain in his feet from being the Cholestryamine and driving his cholesterol to an alarming low rate, causing other issues like severe depression and anxiety. We have been on the PK Protocol now for 5 months and are recovering really really well.
Night and day…we almost died in our environment and had no idea what what happening. This has been a painful and long journey. Best- Rob. I just listened to your presentation on the anxiety summit and it was so helpful!!
I live on an island that was hit hard by hurricane Sandy. Since that time I went from being able to run marathons before the storm to now not being able to run more than a few minutes without getting a migraine that lasts a few days. Have you ever had patients with exercise induced migraines from mold exposure? I think your symptoms could certainly be related to mold Turn Me Out (Acapella) - Kathy Brown - Turn Me Out (Vinyl) and hoping your move helps!
Thank you so much for one becoming a functional medicine doctors and obtaining all of your knowledge well beyond the standard medical world!
I thoroughly enjoyed your interview on the Anxiety Summit! I have listened several times. If a person was exposed to serious mold in their home for 10 years this was 25 years ago for me. Would it still be in my body and an issue? I have been doing special diet and detoxing for 4 yrs. I have made remarkable progress but still struggle. My question is where would a person go from here? Hi Terri, Thanks for your kind words. Yes, a person can become colonized gut, sinuses, lungs, etc with mold after extended exposure.
Try binders and glutathione if you are not already doing them. I loved your talk on the Anxiety Summit! Our previous house had water damage, and I started getting a lot of hypochondria in that house, that progressed to having my first panic attack in years at our wedding rehearsal.
My husband also had colds frequently when we lived there. It was such a relief! I had a major crash this year that took just the chronic anxiety I was experiencing to a whole new level. Need to get back into that. Something that was really interesting that came out of our recent home testing in our current home was that we found out we had a slow gas leak parts per million filling the whole house since we moved in.
The inspector that we had come to check out house is a sick building specialist, and he said he sees this all the time. Someone in the home feels crazy like PMS timesand they have a gas leak filling their home with a low level of natural gas that goes undetected by other inspectors or plumbers.
When my husband called him for the mold testing and he heard my symptoms he said-you have a gas leak. He uses a combustible gas detector to find the leaks. We looked up the symptoms and a lot of them were what I have been experiencing. It likely was the icing on the cake for me.
Very interesting. Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for all of the work you are doing. I did have one question for you: for someone treating mold, how important is it to avoid an unknown sick building? We live in Pittsburgh, PA, and we have lots of really beautiful old homes and buildings here-and lots of rain and moisture.
Will being there for a short amount of time do a lot of damage? Especially when it took a year and a half of trial and error with other things I thought were the cause of my mood issues to find this out.
My husband and I work from home paleo cookbook authors and bloggersso we were really exposed in the home. I am so glad you found out the issues and have been doing better.
Many patients who have been exposed or sensitized to mold develop some form of MCS multiple chemical sensitivity. Best to you in health and healing! Can I ask who your doctor is in Pittsburgh, PA? I have a friend who lives at home with her mother and three adult siblings.
They live in atrocious conditions…tiny trailer that leaks when it rains, has hoarded items to the ceiling in most places,is heated only with the oven, floor heaters or warmth from the dryer venting indoors.
Also the sq. My friend suffers from severe allergies just recently in the past two or three years. She has had retinal blood clots to the point where at one time she was blind. For a long while she was on blood thinners. Also she has lost between 60 — 90 lbs. I asked her mother of the possibility of mold being a cause of her symptoms, but she says when they find a source of mold they wash it with bleach right away! Is this adequate? And how can a person detect mold under piles of boxes and bags of hoarded items?
Also the problem of animal dander, not enough litter boxes, mice etc. This poor girl can rarely eat out at a restaurant for fear her food contains something she may be allergic to. She is a wonderful young woman who deserves so much more out of life. Her mother is a lovely woman, who also has many health issues and lives on disability.
My friend is very protective of her mother and siblings but I feel as if sometimes they take advantage of her. Any suggestions would be helpful. Hi Jenna, Oh dear — please have her watch this documentary, Moldywhich is free for Turn Me Out (Acapella) - Kathy Brown - Turn Me Out (Vinyl) limited time. Dead mold spores may be as harmful or more than live ones so bleach is not adequate.
Mycotoxins from black mold are so dangerous I have trichothecenes mycotoxicosis as well as my family from living in an apartment complex owned by what I like to call white collar slumlords. I never, prior to what happened to us, even thought or worried about mold. It never had been a concern of mine and because of that I was completely uneducated on the topic.
I can understand to SOME degree however am extremely frustrated with there not being a threshold of limitations established for how much mold is too much mold in a residence. I think at minimum there needs to be certain types of mold that should be, if found growing in residences through what should be mandatory thorough investigations, necessary to completely remediated properly. Mycotoxins are truly a silent killer and it is coming to be known I believe if I recall right from my research, about 1 in 4 homes have a moisture problem resulting in black mold.
How abrupt the symptoms are and how severe they become as rapidly as they do, it is petrifying to me. I would never wish mycotoxicosis on anyone. It disgusts me the lack of education my building manager at the time this occurred had in regards to the architecture of a building, the building envelope, ice damming, mold, and the horrific havoc it can have on peoples health.
Come to find out to be a building manager of a residential apartment complex you need a business mnagement degree and a minor in fashion. Just kidding thats what the lady I had had degrees in. Needless to say, you are not required to have really any education in anything building associated.
However, I get it they would need to open their wallets……. I went from having an iron immune system to being sick every single day in just 12 weeks of living at the building. I want to emphasize every single day for 1.
I use to love to sing especially to my kids and I could still but with the constant post nasal drip I have I have to stop and clear my throat every 5 words. It really sucks when I go back and think about my families experiences throughout that time I just wish I would have recognized the problem sooner especially for my childrens sake.
I feel so guilty and dont believe in living in regret however I can say I fully regret and wish I had never gotten my family into that situation. People have no idea how bad it is none.
I was always healthy and then the next thing I knew at 23 normally healthy active ate great for the most part was being tested for asthma unheard of in my familyCOPD, having EKGs done because my heart was beating irregularly, chest x rays, etc My daughter got put on an inhaler at 8 months old, had horrid full body rashes, my sons fingers and my extremeties were going numb, we all developed chronic fatigue, my short term memory was and continues to be horrible, the whole event looking back seems like a dream.
Eventually I got it added into my medical chart that I was a hypochondriac bc none of the departments could come up with any answers as to what or why I had these symptoms and eventually I just felt helpless no one believed me or took me serious. Please get educated and thank you to the author of this article for educating. Dont risk waiting if you suspect black mold have it checked out dont wait until you know its whats causing you to be sick and lose everything you have worked so hard to get and personal possessions like my family had to.
I feel for anyone going through what my family and I had to its truly devastating. Have you found that your clients with mold have vision issues? My 6-year-old was recently diagnosed with Binocular Vision Disorder. Wondering if it is possible for vision to improve with proper treatment and healing from the mold?
Yes, vision issues are quite common with mold exposure. I believe all symptoms may improve over time if you remove yourself from exposure and treat the mold toxicity. I am thrilled to finally see other physicians taking notice of mold exposure. I am a former teacher 52 at the time who was in perfect health and loving life until Once I thought I was having a heart attack or stroke. Had a heart carth which showed my heath to be in excellent condition.
Then the other symptoms began. Horrible headaches by 10AM every day, muscle pain with twitches, severe joint pain, lightening bolt pains down my legs, dirt like taste in my mouth, blurred vision, slurred speech and memory loss.
I could recall names of my students or how to spell 5th grade words, body temp changes and much more. I went to local doctors for a year who had no idea what was wrong. My family doctor finally said that it must be stress or a virus that would go away. I sat in his office feeling like I was dying!! I began my own research. To make a long story short I finally found Dr. Shoemaker in MD who saved my life. He was able to prove it was the school that was making me sick.
I received nothing but a chronic illness and no job but at least I am alive. A few other teachers were sick but chose not to believe. One finall went to Dr. Many kids with horrible rashes, lumps in lymph nodes, bloody noses, dizziness, stomach aches, headaches and more. I keep hoping and praying that the medical community will begin to listen to their patients and start thinking outside their little box! The environment and indoor mold is slowly killing people. I am so much better but still have times that I go some place new that, unknown to me, makes me very sick for 1 to 3 days.
Thank you for educating others. It is the only answer because there are still way too many naysayers! Thanks, Susan! I agree… I am continually shocked at how many of my patients are affected by this nasty toxin.
I was recently diagnosed with Lyme disease. My doctor ran a lot of blood work and found that I do have this mycotoxin illness as well. My insurance company sent an environmental testing company out to look at my basement. They tested the air in basement, first floor and outside.
The results of their testing shows higher levels of mold outside. The mold inside is same type as outside. How do you deal with that? Hi Ann, The insurance company has their own best interest in mind. I would get an independent air quality inspector to retest your home.
You may also want to do Hertsmi-2 testing yourself which can be more accurate than air samples. Some of the most toxic molds do not readily release spores into the air and the air samples may be clean.
If your health is suffering and you suspect mold exposure, you need to find the source. I have been suffering from chronic fatigue and numerous other neurological symptoms. I also have an autoimmune disease which was under control for about 12 years.
If we have a mold issue, I understand it can cause inflammation and trigger the immune system. Have you had experience with this type of illness? I also have recently had genetic data interpreted revealing significant methylation issues. It just keeps getting worse. I have a guy coming next week to test for mold, etc.
Hi Michelle, Yes, this is not uncommon with mold exposure but there are many other causes of fatigue and neurological symptoms. Certainly worth checking for mold! I have been suffering for probably 20 years from sinus issues fatigue, upper back and neck pain. If I leave my home I feel better with in 24 hours.
