Mold, Mycotoxins, Sick Building Syndrome Protocol

This is an illness that often occurs after significant exposure to a water-damaged building. Significant exposure may mean different things to different people depending on their genes, other exposures, and the level of mold in their homes.


The protocol is a logical second step in the healing journey. Remember the first step is always drainage, nervous system regulation, and trauma work followed by protocols like parasites, leaky gut, heavy metals, Lyme, or this protocol, Mold, and sick building syndrome.

Water-damaged homes cause illness due to the toxic components used to build modern-day homes. once wet, drywall has a hard time drying and carpets or wood can mold in less than 24-48 hours. Mold can grow, as well as actinomycetes, a gram-positive bacteria, and many endotoxin-producing gram-negative bacteria that cause mystery symptoms for the sensitive or overwhelmed.

Sick building syndrome requires a specific approach with the best binders that are sticky enough to pull mold spores out of the body. Dive into the course to learn from the best experts in the field!
