PCOS Lady:
Remember: If you see mold of any type on the outside of fruits and vegetables “it” is already through it! I see soft spots, greenish spots, black spots, white spots and at times fuzz… Flies are a good indicater to spoilage…

MOLD EXPOSURE SYMPTOMS
~
Symptoms of Fungal Exposure (Mycotoxicosis)

Mold toxicity is often the end result with constant exposure to mold of a toxic substance. A common misconception among allergists who are untrained in this type of toxicity levels in humans, which is technically not their area of expertise unless they have trained specifically in environmental medicine with their background in immunology, is to do general allergen testing. Most tests usually result in an unequivocal result, a 2+ or less. This induces some physicians to order allergy shots, regardless. These shots are absolutely worthless (and could possibly be harmful) to a person who has been heavily exposed to these mycotoxins as they are already in a state of toxicity. If anything, this could exacerbate the problem. Because many doctors are not trained in this field, they may try to “guess” at a diagnosis.
~
In laymen’s terms, molds produce mycotoxins. These substances, although unseen by the naked eye, are ingested and then enter the body through the skin, mucous and airways. Once ingested, mold has the requirements to colonize and spread. In doing this, it can compromise the immune system and damage everyday processes of the body. Mold and yeast are interchangeable only in their dimorphic state, which is often a big misconception, although both are fungi. There has been a theory of a connection between Autism Spectrum Disorder onset and Candida Albicans in the body. New studies are being conducted during the first quarter of 2006. Updates will follow.
~
Fungi, which include yeasts, moulds, smuts and mushrooms, are responsible for causing four types of mycotic (fungal) disease:
~
1. Hypersensitivity – an allergic reaction to moulds and spores;
2. Mycotoxicosis – poisoning by food products contaminated by fungi
3. Mycetismus – the ingestion of preformed toxin (toadstool poisoning)
4. Infection (systemic) – (Mycotoxicosis; the subject below)
~
The following are a list of the most common symptoms of fungal exposure (bear in mind, people never fit all of below criteria). Most people with some forms of Mycotoxicosis meet at least 8 (recent symptoms) of the following criteria:
~
~ Fibromyalgia/mps (and several correlated symptoms)
~ Respiratory distress, coughing, sneezing, sinusitis
~ Difficulty swallowing, choking, spitting up (vomiting) mucous
~ Hypersensitivity pneumonitis
~ Burning in the throat and lungs (similar to acid reflux and often misdiagnosed as such)
~ Asthmatic signs; wheezing, shortness in breath, coughing, burning in lungs, etc.
~ Irritable bowel syndrome, nausea, diarrhea, sharp abdominal pains, stomach lesions
~ Bladder, liver, spleen, or kidney pain
~ Dark or painful urine
~ Dirt-like taste in mouth, coated tongue
~ Food allergies/leaky gut syndrome/altered immunity
~ Memory loss; brain fog, slurred speech, occasionally leading to dementia
~ Vision problems
~ Swollen lymph nodes
~ Large boils on neck (often a sign of anaphylaxis)
~ Yellowing of nails, ridges, or white marks under nail
~ Thyroid irregularities, sometimes leading to complete dysfunction; adrenal problems
~ Headaches
~ Anxiety/depression, heart palpitations – confusion, PTSD
~ Extreme blood pressure, cholesterol, or triglycerides irregularities
~ Ringing in ears, balance problems (very common), dizziness, loss of hearing (aspergillus niger)
~ Chronic fatigue (also included under this classification directional confusion)
~ Intermittent face flushing; almost always systemic, Called the Mylar Flush (neurological))
~ Night head sweats, and drooling while sleeping, profuse sweating
~ Multiple chemical sensitivity; only upon exposure to Stachybotrys and Chaetomium
~ Nose bleeds (stachybotrys)
~ Bruising/scarring easily; rash or hives, bloody lesions all over the skin (Often systemic, see images; skin)
~ Reproductive system complications; infertility, changes in menstrual cycles, miscarriage
~ Sudden weight changes (Detoxifier genotypes tend to gain weight, non-detoxifier genotypes tend to lose weight)
~ Cancer
~ Hair loss, very brittle nails, temporary loss of fingerprints (in rare cases)
~ Joint/muscle stiffness and pain
~ Irregular heart beat/heart attack
~ Seizures, inadvertent body jerking, twitching, inadvertent facial movements or numbness in face
~ Hypersensitivity when re-exposed to molds, which can lead to anaphylaxis
~ Anaphylaxis upon re-exposure to mycotoxin producing molds
~ Death, in extreme cases
~
Note: despite inaccurate and misleading reports by theorists regarding immuno-compromised, babies, and the elderly being more susceptible, this is a big misconception as exposure to the T-2 mycotoxins found in many types of current indoor molds will poison anyone in time; no one is immune. The reason for this conflicting information is that studies have never been conducted to prove this. If so called experts are going to make such a broad and misleading statement, they may as well say that this same category of people is more susceptible to SARS, West Nile Virus, AIDS, and cancer. The T-2 mycotoxins found in many of these molds are the exact same T-2 mycotoxins that have killed widespread groups of innocent people with Yellow Rain, a biological warfare agent.
~
Different mold species can have varying health effects, but it is important to remember that any excessive mold growth needs to be taken care of, regardless of the species. Any excessive mold growth can lead to increased allergies, toxicity, and house/building structural problems.
