Black mold, also known as Stachybotrys chartarum, is a type of fungus that can grow in damp or humid environments. It is commonly found in homes, and can have serious health effects on those who are exposed to it.
Exposure to black mold can cause a wide range of symptoms, including allergic reactions, respiratory problems, headaches, cold and flu-like symptoms and so much more. People who have a weak immune system, such as children, the elderly, and those with chronic health conditions, are particularly at risk. Long-term exposure to black mold can even lead to serious conditions such as neurological damage and cancer.
To detox your body after exposure to black mold, it is important to see a functional medicine practitioner and/or allergist. They will recommend a specific detox protocol based on your body to bring you back into balance. Additionally, it is important to focus on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including eating a balanced diet, getting enough sleep, and reducing stress.
When it comes to mold remediation in your home, it is essential not just to have the mold cleaned up and removed, but also to address the source of the problem. This means finding and fixing any leaks, dampness, or other sources of moisture that may be contributing to the growth of black mold. It is also important to have professionals clean and disinfect any areas where mold is present, and to properly ventilate your home to reduce humidity levels.
It is also necessary to bring in a professional mold remediation company to address a severe mold infestation. They will have the expertise and equipment necessary to safely remove mold and prevent its return.
It is important to note that black mold should not be taken lightly. Take the necessary steps to remove it and keep it from coming back. It is crucial to take the necessary precautions and to take care of your health and well-being!
In this episode, Laura Powers and Allison Melody share their mold exposure stories and what they are doing to detox their homes, offices and bodies and prevent future exposure.
