Some people are more susceptible to mold and have a wide variety of physical and mental symptoms.
Chronic sinus infections
Muscle aches and pains
Sensitivity to fragrances
These symptoms can be from a present and even a past exposure to molds in the home especially when a basement has a history of flooding.
For some, even moving into a mold free home does not bring complete relief and must then be considered a chronic infection requiring specific treatments.
First Step with Mold
It is obvious that the first step is to determine if you are still being exposed to molds in your home and workplace because no matter what therapies you are using to reduce the body’s burden of mold they will never be effective.
I have been told by several people who hired mold remediation companies to test their home for molds that they were given clear mold assessments only later to find mold behind a wall.
If the company determines there is mold then this is conclusive but if they say mold doesn’t exist this doesn’t mean your home is mold free.
Two options are 1) go to www.moldcheck.com and use their test strips. I find they are accurate in determining which room may be a hot spot for molds though the test doesn’t identify the mold and 2) see if you have someone in your area using dogs to sniff out molds.
For this go to MoldDogs.com.
One family got a report that their home was clear of molds.
They hired someone with a ‘mold dog’ and found nine places where mold was found behind the walls.
Diagnosing Mold Issues
When presenting symptoms to a physician seldom will your condition be attributed to molds.
Blood and urine diagnostic testing is expensive and not always accurate.
We find viewing a person’s blood under a dark-field microscope does show mold though identification of the type of mold is not possible.
The degree or quantity is usually accurate and the various forms of mold are visible.
Our Approach to Mold
Our approach is pretty straight forward and effective yet often there are other health issues besides mold which must be taken into consideration as well.
When a person comes with mold issues they often ask why no one else in the family is sick.
This is because the ill person is susceptible to molds for a number of reasons so part of our approach must be to reduce their susceptibility while treating them for molds.
We consider a mold infection to be similar to a Candida issue and following a Candida diet is most helpful.
Various diets are easily found online and in a number of books on Candida.
Liver function must be improved.
We recommend a liposomal form of reduced glutathione at 300mgs twice daily.
Often the gall bladder and liver need drainage herbs. The best we have found is Dr. Shade’s Bitters #9 which is a combination of dandelion, milk thistle, solidago, gentian, burdock, sweet orange essential oil, myrrh, juniper essential oil and cloves.
The neurological system as well as the Blood Brain Barrier must be strengthened.
We recommend a high quality liposomal Phosphatidyl Choline supplement taken with meals.
Mold disrupts an important defense mechanism inside our cells (Nrf2) which suppresses the ability all the cells of our body and brain to detoxify. To upregulate this Rnf2 pathway use liposomal DIM (sulforaphane from cruciferous vegetables) at 2 pumps twice daily for a week and then 3 pumps twice daily.
For inflammation and anti-oxidant support use liposomal curcumin and resveratrol at 1 tsp 2-3 times daily.
If Candida is suspected, usually due to the excess use of antibiotics, then there is a whole supplement protocol for this but start with using gymnemic acid extract from the plant Gymnema sylvestre at 1,200mg twice daily. This deals with both Candida and other fungi including Aspergillus.
Support every cell of the body with the nutrients required to make energy (ATP) in the mitochondria. Use the liposomal Methyl B-complex which also contains the water soluble folic acid (folinic acid).
Use Nano Silver from Food for Health if there is a sinus issue. You can rinse the sinus or use it in a nebulizer.
A homeopathic preparation made from molds will help reduce mold sensitivities and speed up your recovery. HMV and Bio-Allers are two products.
When a person suffers from anxiety and their brain feels revved up (wired but tired) then they are stuck in a hyperactive sympathetic mode. Liposomal GABA and L-Theanine will shift this disequilibrium by supporting the parasympathetic branch of the Autonomic Nervous System.
These are a must and will help to rid the body of mold residues through the skin.
These should be done at least 3 times weekly.
Our walk-in cedar sauna has a shower just outside the sauna in the same room.
Our shower has a large bucket which automatically fills with cold water.
The refreshing cold alternating with the hot dry sauna brings relaxation and the re-balancing of the autonomic nervous system.
This is an ultraviolet blood therapy where a very thin fiber optic is inserted into a soft catheter in the vein.
Our UVLRx delivers specific frequencies of UV light directly to the blood as it passes through the vein.
This treatment lasts for an hour and treats just about all the blood in the body.
During this treatment an IV of sodium chloride must drip simultaneously to keep the tip of the fiber optic clean.
We bubble ozone through this sodium chloride before the treatment begins.
So you are getting the benefit of both UV and ozone.
It is difficult to know how many treatments are needed to clear the mold but a follow up dark-field microscope, usually after the 3rd or 4th UVLRx, will tell us when the therapy has done its job.
The cost of the UVLRx is $160 and the ozone drip is $35.
The cost of the pre and post dark-field microscope is $75 each.
The German Zotzmann Therapy
When a person has both mold and bacteria in their blood then ozone is also needed.
The UVLRx works very well on mold but the Zotzmann ozone is necessary for high bacterial counts.
The Z machine treats approximately 1/2 the blood of the body.
Blood is drawn from the vein through an IV line into a sterile 200cc glass vacutainer, is then mixed with a specific concentration of ozone and returned through the line back into the vein.
This is a completely sterile procedure.
This mixing of ozone and blood is repeated ten times at the same sitting and requires about 2 hours.
After this ten pass we then do an IV drip through the same line of approximately 5 grams of vitamin C with magnesium and calcium.
We then administer 600mg of glutathione after the vitamin C drip.
All the above is included in the Zotzmann treatment and the cost is $400.
Please be sure to receive instruction about preparing for this treatment.
If you are interested in setting an appointment please note the following.
Call our clinic and speak with our receptionist saying you are likely having health issues related to mold.
You have the option of scheduling a dark-field microscope appointment to begin with or to set a regular 1 hour consultation with Dr. Haskell.
The 1 hour session does include the microscope but will also include a much more in depth analysis of your health issues.
There is no preparation for the 1/2 hour dark-field appointment.
If you schedule the longer appointment then you’ll be forwarded our intake questionnaire and asked to forward any labs from this last year.
The charge for the dark-field is $75.
The charge for the hour consult is $250.
