There are numerous different types of mold, some of which are more harmful to humans than others. Mold exposure is a serious matter and can have a significant negative impact on your long-term health. Making matters worse, far too many people have no idea they’ve been exposed to toxic mold and believe their symptoms are related to another issue.
Even when mold exposure is suspected as the culprit, traditional medicine often relies on antifungal medications to treat the problem. These drugs are incredibly harmful to your body, especially your liver.
Antibiotics are also used to treat sinus infections that are actually caused by mold, which is unaffected by antibiotics.
Mold can affect your ability to breathe properly, cause allergic reactions, and harm various parts of your respiratory system. You can even develop hypersensitivity, which can increase your risk of becoming sick from future exposure to various types of mold.
If drug therapy isn’t the best approach, how can you treat mold exposure in a way that supports overall health? The answer lies in nutrition. Dr. Troy creates a customized nutrition plan that can not only help you recover from mold exposure, but will also enhance your overall health.
A starting point is eliminating excess sugar from your diet. Sugar suppresses your immune system and is often contaminated by mold from the processing needed to transform raw sugar to table sugar crystals.
You might also be advised to eliminate other foods and beverages from your diet to give your body a chance to recover from mold exposure. Things to limit might include:
This is not a comprehensive list. Many foods contain mold and can cause wide-ranging ill effects. Avoiding these foods and adding probiotics to your daily diet can give your system a chance to recover from mold exposure and regain stability.
Nutraceutical is a word formed by a combination of “nutrition” and “pharmaceutical.” It refers to food or nutritional supplements that deliver health or medical benefits without drugs or invasive medical procedures.
