I’ve studied and personally learned from many men and women in the fields of environmental toxicology, functional medicine, psychoneuroimmunology and genetics also including world renowned medical doctors. My passion for whole body health and restorative care along with a background in chemistry, microbiology, accompanied by a University research position in Microbial Genetics has allowed me to have a unique look into the mystery of and its effect on the matrix of the body. Having applied these experiences and research to a clinical practice I would like to share my observations.
Mold issues have been written about as far back as the 14th century BC. They can be found in Jewish historical documents as well as in the book of Leviticus, as we will discuss later. Mold made a huge leap in the world of health care when Alexander Fleming accidentally found that Penicillin mold could be an effective antibiotic.
Dealing with Mold Symptoms
So many people that come to our clinic have a broad array of signs and symptoms. We see some truly ill people that have had 40+ symptoms, such as fatigue, heart racing, multiple levels of cognitive impairment, multiple chemical sensitivities, neurological impairment and the list goes on.
A great number of people would like to know what we do or what we can do for mold associated illness. Many people suffering from chronic illnesses are mostly not able to take the commonly prescribed medications Cholestyramine or Amphotericin B. Due to the holistic nature of our philosophy and methods of whole body treating we have had to look far and wide and dig deeper than most physicians to find some relief for those that seem to be endlessly suffering.
I would not consider myself to be an expert in mold. I have not dedicated my life to studying it, learning about its intricate makings and how one can use it, or destroy it. I do, however, know how the matrix of the body works and I work with an entire team of men and women that know what to do for chronically ill people. We see people from all over the world from Amsterdam to Anaheim, Sydney to Seattle; we see some of the most difficult patients. People perhaps just like you reading this, lost in a sea of physicians, not knowing where to turn, not knowing how you will carry on. We see moms and dads, brothers and sisters just like you.
So you may ask the question, what makes our approach different? First, we utilize natural solutions and hand crafted mixes as opposed to a one-size fits all approach. We also utilize many healing herbs by way of nutritional products, detoxification protocols, mind-body balancing work, and resonance matched remedies for priority ailments like but not limited to bacteria, viruses, molds and parasites. All of this is to aid the body’s natural defense mechanism which allows it to reach a balanced point.
Before I get to the physical aspect of our approach to mold illness I would like to take a moment to acknowledge that mold has been around for thousands of years. It is even written about in the Old Testament. Biblical ways (prescriptions) one should deal with mold are written within the book of Leviticus. I encourage you to read Chapters 13 and 14 of Leviticus as this details how to deal with the defilement of leprosy. A quick study about the origins of tsar’at, the Hebrew word for ritual defilement affecting the skin, clothes, and structures was translated to Greek then to Latin then to English as “leprosy”. Many Hebrew language scholars and even Greek language scholars would disagree with its interpretation and find a more appropriate term as “mold”.
Stay tuned on my next blog I’ll outline my Biological Medicine approach to mold related illnesses.
