moldReactions to mold exposure is on the rise in many communities. There is a noticeable uptick in clients referred to ReSet from Functional Medicine doctors for services supporting mold detoxification. Described symptoms vary and given the high number of people coming to ReSet to gain some relief, we decided to review what can help. 

Where Mold is Commonly Found

According to the CDC, mold is very common in buildings and homes. Mold will grow in places with a lot of moisture, such as around leaks in roofs, windows, or pipes, or where there has been flooding. Mold grows well on paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles, and wood products. Mold can also grow in dust, paints, wallpaper, insulation, drywall, carpet, fabric, and upholstery.

Symptoms of Mold Exposure

Common symptoms include irritation of the respiratory tract and eyes, recurrent sinusitis, bronchitis and cough. Beyond the respiratory symptoms, mold can also cause fatigue, headaches, nausea, anxiety, depression, brain fog, memory loss and a variety of gut issues. Symptoms vary and can often go undiagnosed.

There is research suggesting that mold exposure has increased the likelihood of children developing asthma when exposed at a young age. Some studies are also connecting mold and indoor air dampness exposure to postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and myalgic encephalomyelitis or chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS/ME).

How we can help mitigate mold toxicity

ReSet offers several services to help reverse the conditions caused by mold with a series of visits. It is important to note that we encourage you to meet with your doctor for a correct diagnosis and discussion of treatment options.

Vitamin IVs and Vitamin Shots: Glutathione can help via the Rejuvenate shot offered at ReSet or a nutrient infusion at Glow IV. Glutathione plays a major role in detoxifying your mold mycotoxins and raising these master detoxifying antioxidant levels allows your liver to function optimally and reduce the risk of mitochondrial damage.

Oral Supplements: There are many oral supplement blends that help with mold detoxification and glutathione that can be taken orally. ReSet health coaches can help guide you to resources to select the right pre and probiotics to aid in gut health.

Salt Therapy: Also called Halotherapy, Salt Therapy has been confirmed in clinical trials as an effective option for relieving symptoms and improving functional parameters in sinusitis, bronchiectasis, chronic bronchitis, mild and moderate asthma, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). These same studies indicate salt therapy should be recommended as a complementary therapy in patients with prolonged exposure to indoor air dampness and mold. Salt therapy can lower inflammation in the respiratory tract and to break up mold spores in lung cavities. Practicing a series of breathing exercises will also aid in cleansing the lungs. We just will remind you that using salt therapy during an asthmatic flare-up is not recommended.

Infrared Sauna: The use of near, far, and mid rays help restore the body’s ecosystem. The sauna encourages cardiovascular health with new oxygenated blood flow to cells to help reduce inflammation caused by mold. The heat waves penetrate the skin more deeply than traditional saunas, allowing for the removal of a more significant amount of toxins. Your skin is your largest organ, so pushing out toxins by sweating is a great strategy. We commonly see referred clients utilize the infrared sauna two or three times per week to achieve desired results. 

NuCalm: If you're experiencing fatigue, depression or anxiety, NuCalm can help you achieve restorative rest for your body and in calming your parasympathetic nervous system.
