Here Are Some Remedies For Mold Poisoning
Dr. Doris Rapp is an MD who specializes in allergies and she states that many allergies could be due to mold poisoning.
She calls mold an allergy, but that’s the one thing we disagree with her on. The word “allergy” is too weak a word to describe ALL the health issues associated with mold poisoning.
Here are the symptoms she says to look for
- Joint Pain
- Coughing and wheezing
- Sinus problems and post-nasal drip
- Itchy rashes
We have a much more detailed list of symptoms due to mold toxicity here.
Provocation Neutralization Allergy Testing
This is Dr. Rapp’s easy to do mold allergy test:
“You can put a drop of a mold mixture in somebody’s arm that looks perfectly normal. If they have asthma, you can produce asthma in seconds. Within eight minutes, they will be sick… That’s why they call it provocation. You would provoke the actual symptoms of the mold producers.
So if molds cause you to have a headache and fatigue, you put on a drop and you’re going to have a headache and feel tired. If it causes hyperactivity and asthma, you’re going to have those symptoms.
Then, if you give that patient increasing dilutions — so you give them a 1 to 5 [dilution] and then a 1 to 25, and then a 1 to 125; one drop of that allergy extract in the right dilution will render the patient is entirely normal within eight minutes. The problem is that there aren’t a lot of doctors that know this technique, and your insurance may not cover it.”
Additional Signs of Mold Toxicity
- Children can’t write. She would put a drop of mold allergy extract on their arm, and the next thing she knew, they were writing upside down. Or they would rip the paper in half. Or write very, very tiny or very large, or over the place.
- Rapid pulse – use an electronic heart rate monitor like the one used for Sprint 8 exercises. Even if you eat something and feel weird, take your pulse to gauge it. This is more accurate than using your fingers to test your wrist pulse, but that is a good first alternative.
- After being in a space where you think there is mold, check your handwriting. If it’s not the same as it normally is, this could be an indication that something’s wrong.
- Blow into a peak flow meter while standing in different rooms or areas of your house. If you blow 400 in one room but only 300 in another, it could be a sign that something in that room is affecting you. You can also do this before and after eating different foods.
- Red cheeks or ear lobes
- Dark under-eye circles
- Bags under your eyes
- Restless legs
Notice when you get these reactions and start keeping track of what you ate or where you were just before this happened to your body.
Remedies For Mold
- Of course the FIRST step is identifying that obvious or hidden source of water that is raising the humidity levels in your home or office that is allowing the mold to grow.In the end it won’t matter what filter you use until you have the humidity under control and the mold properly cleaned.
- The NORMI (National Organization of Remediators and Mold Inspectors) has books that explain exactly what to do to remove mold the proper way.You can also call them at 877-251-2296.
- One way of controlling mold is to get a quality air purifier such as the IQAIR, Air Oasis or Austin. Now many die hard moldies don’t believe in air purifiers, but Dr. Rapp feels it breaks down the mycrotoxins.
- She also recommends getting a photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) unit (research this before posting). She said, “she personally likes it because it works for the whole house (up to 3000 square feet), required little maintenance, and is relatively inexpensive. A machine that produces ozone at biological levels is also safe and can be very effective in removing odors.”We learned that for the air purifiers and ozone machines, you can’t have pets or plants left in the home and even certain paper products shouldn’t be left in the home otherwise it will harm them.

You can read the full article here, or watch the video below where she even discusses how to diagnose food sensitivities or allergies. She even talks about how you can continue eating some food items if you have just a mild sensitivity.
She’s also written the book, Our Toxic World: A Wake Up Call. Unfortunately it was never formatted for Kindle being that it was written 14 years ago back in 2003.
