      Mold Exposure & Mold Toxicity: What You Need to Know and How to Treat It

      Mold toxins may be silent, but they are silently destructive. Plus, they have the ability to trigger different symptoms in different people. If you’re not aware of the effects of mold, it can result in ongoing exposure. Eventually, it can lead to more serious health issues, such as mold toxicity or Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS).

      What makes treating mold complicated is that it’s not just about correctly assessing and healing your symptoms. It involves a more holistic and comprehensive approach. It also includes walking through your questions and removing your exposure. It involves equipping you to protect your environment from mold coming back.

      This is why having expert specialists who are trained in mold exposure and toxicity is key. At One Agora Integrative Health, we take mold seriously. We know how it can present “mystery” symptoms and impact multiple systems in your body. Because we take a functional medicine approach, we look at your body and environment holistically and work with you on treating both.

      What Are the Symptoms of Mold Toxicity?

      Some people are extremely sensitive to mold exposure while others don’t seem to experience anything at all. Certain types of health conditions can also increase your risk for symptoms.

      For many, mold triggers mysterious symptoms that are commonly overlooked or misdiagnosed. These mold exposure symptoms can include:

      • Breathing difficulties, such as wheezing, coughing, or shortness of breath
      • Worsening asthma
      • Irritation in the nasal passageway, lungs, or throat
      • Postnasal drip
      • Skin irritation
      • Headaches or dizziness
      • Brain fog
      • Difficulty concentrating

      Because symptoms can vary so greatly from person to person, they’re often difficult to diagnose. This means you could continue living exposed to mold without even knowing it. This will keep taking a toll on your body. Eventually, you could develop a more serious syndrome known as CIRS, or Mold Biotoxin Illness. CIRS affects multiple systems in your body and can eventually become debilitating.

      Unfortunately, if you’re experiencing symptoms and you head to your primary care physician, you may not get the help you need. A lot of times, mold and CIRS symptoms mimic other conditions and can be misdiagnosed. Plus, chances are, mold isn’t on many traditional physicians’ radars since most aren’t trained to take a holistic approach to wellness.

      For example, when was the last time your doctor asked if you had a leak in your house or office? Probably never, right? That’s because many physicians don’t take your environment into account when diagnosing the root cause of your symptoms.

      But, at One Agora Integrative Health Clinic, we do things differently.

      How We Treat Mold Exposure or Toxicity at One Agora Integrative Health Clinic

      Have you noticed changes in your health after having a water leak? Or perhaps you're experiencing unexplained symptoms after moving into a new building or staying at a hotel? If this sounds like you, you may want to consider getting tested for mold exposure or CIRS.

      Finding out you’ve been exposed to mold brings up a whole host of complications and questions. It’s easy to get overwhelmed. At One Agora Integrative Health Clinic, we’re here to walk with you every step of the way. We take a holistic and thorough approach to treating mold exposure.

      The first step is ordering the right tests to find out if mold is causing your specific symptoms. We’ll also help you find out if you’ve developed CIRS.

      We don’t stop there. You’re only as healthy as your environment, so it doesn’t do much good if we only treat you. This is why we’re committed to providing you the information and steps needed to rid your home of mold once and for all.
