Nov. 17, 2011 - PRLog -- Mold Exposure Treatment Options

There are a wide variety of treatment options for mold exposure and individual physical needs play a role in determining the best option. The following is an overview designed to stimulate further research rather than suggest a specific protocol.

Drug Options:
Cholestyramine (CSM) is commonly prescribed for mold exposure. This is a bile acid sequestrant, which binds bile in the gastrointestinal tract to prevent its reabsorption. It also works as a mycotoxin binding agent. CSM can be compounded to contain no sugar.  It is important to take CSM two hours before or after any nutritional supplements, as it will bind these as well.

Activated charcoal and bentonite clay are two natural binding agents and often taken with CSM.

Anti-fungal drugs. These include the plyenes, the triazoles and imidazoles, allylamines and more. Nystatin is an example of an anti-fungal drug. Anti-fungal drugs can be taken in nasal spray form.

Low-dose Naltrexone. Naltrexone is an opioid receptor antagonist. Low-dose Naltrexone (LDN) has been shown to be effective in treating immunologically related disorders.

To find a doctor, contact the mold treatment centers of america (855) 800 6653. Their level of knowledge regarding toxic mold is extensive.  


Natural Options (often integrated with conventional medical therapies):

Garlic, oil of oregano, pau d'arco, olive leaf extract, caprylic acid (found in coconuts), barberry, and grapefruit seed extract are some of the natural anti-fungals.

Glutathione therapy is often vital to recovery. For more information, see this article.


Skin Remedies:

Rashes often appear during mold exposure, as well as during the detox process.

Ketoconazole cream is a topical anti-fungal cream. Other skin remedies include tea tree oil, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, and grapefruit seed extract (diluted).

Charcoal soap can be used as a detox agent. It can be combined with ketaconazole shampoo lather.

Epsom salt baths are helpful. For more detox bath alternatives, see this list and our section on Healing Baths.


Anti-Fungal Diet:

One goal of an anti-fungal diet is to starve the fungus, thereby halting the cycle that often occurs. Sugars and carbs feed the fungus. Chlorophyll does the opposite. Green foods are therefore effective anti-fungals. Alkaline diets incorporate a similar goal. Microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, and yeasts thrive in an acidic environment but do not thrive in an alkaline environment.

Some chlorophyll-rich foods include spirulina, chlorella, and wheat grass.


Brain Retraining:

The entire body is impacted by mold exposure. Digestive tracts are hit hard, and so are endocrine systems. The brain is invariably involved. Brain retraining programs often play a part in recovery. One pyuac example is the Gupta Amygdala program.


Alternative Health Options:

A wide variety of alternative health options exist. Practitioners may not be familiar with the specifics of mold exposure but can address the need to detox.

These are a few of the numerous options available: orthospinology (a chiropractic specialty), ONDAMED, acupuncture, oxygen chamber therapy, IV therapies, chelation therapies, far infrared sauna, and much, much more.

It's important to note that a healing crisis can occur as detox from mold exposure begins. This is known as a "Herx Reaction"and is an increase in the symptoms caused by toxin circulation and inflammation. It is, therefore, not unusual to get worse before getting better.

If you are overwhelmed as you consider all of these options, remember that the detoxification process takes time. Trust your instincts. Begin with mold avoidance and diet as you consider the next step on your journey to recovery.
