Hidden mold colonizing in your house / apartment can silently cause misery through a strange illness nobody can trace to any particular cause.
Over the course of 2010 and 2011 my boyfriend Monty and I had some funky health issues. I was battling a lot of yeast in my body; tiredness, run down, etc. I thought most of it was me continuing to rebuild my body after getting sick in 2007.’
My boyfriend has had asthma his whole life. In the last 2 years it came back frequently and we blamed it on harvest dust, milk overload, smoke exposure, or cat inundation.
February 2012 we moved from our apartment. We knew there was mold by the sliding glass door to the patio, but we had no idea how much mold was in there until we moved the furniture. There was mold in about 20% of the apartment!
We couldn’t believe as we lifted tables, book cases, and the couch how much black mold was secretly hiding under everything. The carpet was also full of mold but you couldn’t see it.
It’s been two months since we’ve moved out and our health has changed drastically.
The first few weeks we got really sick sick; we weren’t sure if it was viral or we had a massive die-off of systemic mold in our body. Monty and I coughed and hacked all night long. We had sore throats and we were drag-your-butt exhausted.
After that initial two week purge, our health has improved by leaps and bounds. Monty hasn’t had any asthma bouts when just a few months ago it was a weekly occurrence.
I have noticed I am not having to take massive amounts of anti-candida / yeast supplements to keep the ever looming yeast at bay. I can also eat foods that normally would have triggered yeast problems and I don’t get a “bloom”.
Our feeling is that the mold in the apartment was keeping our immune system suppressed and constantly under attack.
Can you imagine how you’d feel if every day for months you were in a boxing match? That’s what our immune systems were doing and they were trashed.
If you have problems with feeling run down, chronic yeast infections, asthma, food allergies, frequent colds, and irritated sinus – consider your home as a cause of yeast infections.
Check your carpet, under furniture, under wallpaper (yes, this is true!), under laminate floor (had that happen too, see pic at the top of this post), between drywall and exterior, attics, around windows / doors, and of course everywhere in the basement.
You may have to do a complete remediation if the mold is really bad; ie: rip out carpet, rid the furniture, tear down infested walls, and replace windows, etc. Please seek a mold specialist in these cases, they have the right equipment to handle the massive release of sickness causing mold spores that get released from the carpets and structure.
Clean the moldy area with Thieves, an essential oil blend that is proven to kill and neutralize mold. It also won’t come back. Everyone uses bleach, which doesn’t really do the job that it “appears” to. It’s also very toxic to the respiratory system, which is already irritated from unknowingly inhaling mold.
Using Thieves Cleaner to get rid of the mess and diffuse Thieves essential oil blend to treat the rest of the home space. This is the safest natural mold killer and most effective way to recover from a mold infestation. Unfortunately, the last 3 places I have lived have silently had mold problems!
