Is Mold Making You Toxic? Optimum Health Report #367

Toxic mold which could be dangerous for human health

Dear Readers,

We seem to be in the middle of a mold epidemic. While Florida and other locales have always been humid, we humans and molds used to get along better. Now a days, the number of people coming to LifeWorks with body toxicity from mold is almost overwhelming. Brain fog, fatigue, joint pain, rashes, autoimmune disease, secondary infection, neuropathy are common symptoms.

Why is this? It’s most likely the result of EMF exposure in the environment. Living cells, be us or molds are affected by electrical dirty energy. Cell phone towers, Wi-Fi, cell phones, smart meters, and the like pervade practically every inch of planet earth. With 5G coming it will be even worse.

An interesting experiment was done which took a portion of a common toxic mold and put it in a room. The mold was divided into two portions. One was open to the usual Wi-Fi and the other was protected by a Faraday cage which blocked the EMF exposure.

After 30 days the amount of toxin production was compared between the exposed and unexposed mold. In the exposed mold the output was 600 times higher of mold toxins and the toxins were much more virulent. Molds make toxins when “attacked.” They were reacting to the EMF because they were stressed.

So now we have this problem to deal with. We humans do better without Wi-Fi as a constant barrage. So do molds.

What to do?

  1. Get all of the leaks in your house sealed up. Molds grow where there is water.
  2. Have a mold inspector come out to your house and check it.
  3. Keep the humidity in your house below 54 degrees. Molds need humidity to thrive.
  4. If you have any of the above symptoms come into LifeWorks for an evaluation. We can do a urine test to see if your body is full of mold toxins and can give you a program to get them handled.

Have a great week,
Dr. David I Minkoff, MD

Mold Toxicity

The molds which can cause health dangers are usually found indoors and can be white or greenish in color, or black in the case of Stachybotrys atra, which gives it the more commonly-used name “Black Mold”.

“…I was diagnosed with Lyme disease, mold toxicity and a host of other infections…”

Dr. Minkoff Talks about Brain Fog

“Toxins can get into the body, they can get into the brain. They can mess with the brain operation and with the brain communication system. And when that occurs, you’re not going to think right.”

Brain Fog

Brain fog is the inability to think clearly or remember things that you would normally easily recall.

Learn about the symptoms of brain fog and how we treat it at LifeWorks Wellness Center.
