Mold and mycotoxin illness is a sleeping dragon of neurological and immune deficiency syndromes. It lies in wait, depleting the patient’s immune system, disrupting the nervous system, until one day, there’s a diagnosis - but it won’t be mold. Instead, it might be called allergies, chronic sinusitis, asthma, chronic respiratory disease, neuropathy, sarcoidosis, T-cell abnormalities, anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome, dysautonomia, or even cancer.
OSHA estimates that 1 in 4 buildings in the US have had water damage. Water-damaged buildings host molds that affect human health. Molds suppress immune function and act as a neurological toxin. Therefore, low-grade immune deficiency over time can be masked as neuropsych issues, which in actuality have deep physical roots and consequences. Dr. Jill sheds light on this prevalent and often overlooked contributor to human suffering. #gotmold
