Mold toxins

 

If you have mold toxins growing in your home it is like having a small invisible army growing on and behind your walls and in your air ducts waiting to attack your body and it’s immune system. It is vitally important that you take care of serious mold growth that occurs after water damage in a home. Companies like Pure Maintenance in Bountiful Utah specialize in ridding your home of mold toxins that are both on surface areas and air borne, but what about the mold that has already entered your body? What steps can be taken to rid your body of these destructive toxins?

Unless the problem in your body has become severe, the mold toxins will generally work themselves out of your body, however there are some steps you can take to accelerate the process. Dr. Mercola has written a very good article on the subject and the link to that article can be found a the bottom of this page.

TIPS

Probiotics

Dr Mercola encourages anyone with mold toxins in their body to find a good probiotic to take. Probiotics are the friendly bacteria that help your bodies immune system to eliminate the harmful toxins in your body. Probiotics will help move the mold toxins out of your body quicker.

The Billings “Magic Four”

The Billings family suffered extensive flood damage after the disaster caused by Hurricane Katrina. They experimented with tons of different natural remedies to clear their bodies of mold toxins and eventually settled on four super foods that did the trick.

  1. Garlic – Garlic is a well known natural anti-fungal and antibacterial and will help the body to detox quickly. They mention that it is best to eat the garlic whole.
  2. Ginger – Ginger is also a very good anti-fungal and antibacterial and will get rid of the mold toxins in your body.
  3. Cayenne – Cayenne helps activate the other helpful herbs you are taking.
  4. Goldenseal – Goldenseal will help your body detox but should not be taken for prolonged periods of time.

If you are interested in buying the Billings book called, “Mold: The War Within” I have placed a link at the bottom of the page.
