“I am worried I have health issues related to mould exposure and wonder if you have any advice for dealing with this? I just want to feel well and nothing I try seems to help long term.”Emily, UK
Thank you so much for writing in and I am sorry to hear you are feeling unwell. First thing first, are you living in an environment with mould? It sounds like you are having short term relief but it keeps coming back which may suggest mould is somewhere in your home. This might seem obvious but make sure you check your window sills, bathroom, door frames, basement, attic, HVAC or air conditioning system. If you have carpets, you may want to hire a professional to clean them with a non toxic solution. A mixture of baking soda, vinegar, tea tree oil with some lemon essential oil would be your best natural sources. To prevent mould from growing back, make sure your living space is well ventilated and cleaned regularly.
Along with those recommendations, I would suggest investing in an air purifier. Several months ago, my husband and I purchased the Molekule, recently named in the top 20 best inventions of 2017. The first night we used it in our bedroom, we both noticed a huge difference in our breathing. The Molekule doesn’t trap air pollutants, it completely breaks them down and destroys them. This includes VOCs, mould, viruses, bacteria and allergens. I’m not going to lie, it is pricey, but totally worth it. Financing is available on their site.
Here are some things you can do to get mould out of your body. The number one recommendation is to use activated charcoal which traps toxins and pulls them out of the body. Try cutting out all forms of yeast and sugar as these feed mould. Eating raw garlic and using chlorophyll can be very beneficial as well since they both contain anti fungal and other properties to help clear out the mould. I would also add in lots of leafy greens, ginger, lemon, cilantro, oregano and some Pau d’Arco tea. Anthony Williams has a talk, Healing from Mold Exposure, if you’d like to check it out. Sending you all my best!
