Updated: Apr 19, 2022

Have you ever had a sudden downturn in your health? Do you have a history of mold exposure? Have you ever experienced sick building syndrome where you feel bad inside certain places like home, school or work but feel better when you leave? If so, you could be struggling from mold illness.

Mold illness occurs when mold grows indoors & produces toxins. Mold can colonize in any mucosal lining in your body and is commonly found in the digestive tract, lungs and sinuses.

Because of mold's ability to thrive in your body, it can cause serious health issues. This is why many people move out of a moldy home but still continue to feel sick. Mold also mimics other health conditions and often gets misdiagnosed.

Mold can be found in water damaged buildings (in many cases the water damage is unknown), water, air and in food like grains, nuts, coffee.

Mold toxins (mycotoxins) suppress your immune system, slow your thyroid, reduce oxygen and generate endotoxins. Here's a short list of mold toxicity risk factors.
