MOLD: Can That Musty Smell Make You Sick? with Mold Expert Bridgit Danner (RE-RELEASE)

I learned much from today’s podcast with mold expert Bridgit Danner.

I’ve never given much thought about mold and the impact it could have on chronic disease or even cancer!

When Bridgit explained that chemical warfare is often made from a mold, she got my attention!

If mold is strong enough to be used in a bomb, what kind of havoc can it create in my body?

Listen to today’s episode to learn more about this fascinating topic.

According to Dr. Isaac Eliaz:

“You may not be aware of it, but mold is probably affecting your health. So even if it’s not on your mind, “how to detox your body from mold” should be something we all need to be asking.

Even if mold is making you sick, you might not know it’s the source of your symptoms. That’s because mold toxicity can act like many other conditions, so it often goes misdiagnosed and untreated. Exposure can cause many different symptoms, including:

  • Fatigue
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Joint pain
  • Memory problems
  • Dizziness
  • Sinus infections
  • Wheezing
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Skin rash
  • Digestive problems

One of the main reasons mold toxins can cause so many different symptoms is this: These toxins can suppress or damage your immune system. Not only can they bring on symptoms themselves, they can make you more vulnerable to other illnesses.

Surrounded by Mold

Mold exposure is shockingly common. It’s found in the air, damp or water-damaged buildings, even the food you’re eating. Foods that commonly contain mold include cereal grains, nuts, spices, coffee, bulk foods (like the kind you buy from bins to save money) and dairy products.

You come across mold inside and outside, and it can travel around with you. Mold spores can attach to things like:

  • Clothing
  • Shoes
  • Pets
  • Reusable grocery bags

That means it can come home with you from just about anywhere. And if it ends up somewhere even slightly damp, it will grow and multiply.

In nature, mold speeds up the break down (decomposition) of things like dead trees and fallen leaves. Some molds are used to make cheese or create antibiotics.

But many types of mold can be hazardous to your health. These molds produce mycotoxins, poisons that can cause severe health problems and a wide variety of symptoms.

The two most common harmful mycotoxins are aflatoxin and ochratoxin, and exposure to either (or both) of these can trigger substantial health issues — from chronic allergies to cancer.

What’s more, if your body can’t remove these toxins on its own, they can slip into long-term storage to cause lasting or recurring damage.

Mycotoxins Damage Your Health

Mycotoxins are sneaky. While mold itself can’t enter your bloodstream — though it can hang around and colonize in spots like your nostrils and lungs — mycotoxins can get into your bloodstream and circulate throughout your body.

These opportunistic toxins can hijack your immune system, making you more vulnerable to infections. If your immune system is already compromised (such as people with autoimmune conditions or undergoing cancer treatment), mycotoxins take advantage. If you’re healthy, they can make you very sick.

  • Studies show that mycotoxins can:
  • Cause lung inflammation that can make it harder to breathe
  • Disrupt your gut health by reducing beneficial bacteria and encouraging pathogens
  • Trigger chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Affect brain function and cognition
  • Cause liver damage, including cancer
  • Worsen allergy and asthma symptoms

Unfortunately, mold toxicity is frequently misdiagnosed. Because of its wide-ranging effects, it’s typically mistaken for other conditions including depression, multiple sclerosis, or autoimmune conditions. Plus, because mycotoxins are opportunistic, they’re often connected with debilitating diseases such as Lyme disease, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and fibromyalgia.”

I was SHOCKED to hear that when I buy frozen fish, it’s frozen TWICE. It’s usually frozen right after being caught, defrosted, processed, and then frozen again.

I buy a lot of frozen fish; sometimes, the taste and texture can be inconsistent. Now that I have a better understanding of the processing of the fish before it hits my plate, it makes me wonder about quality.

I called a friend who works at ButcherBox and asked her about the process with their salmon. She assured me that BB only freezes the fish ONCE! Which helps preserve the nutrients and taste. The big one for me is texture. When I eat fish, I want a firm texture, not rubbery!

After getting over my shock (yes, fooled again by the food corporations) I asked my BB friend if I could pretty-please offer free salmon to my community. She said yes, so if you use the code ‘enos’, you can get free salmon (2 pounds) free for a year and $20 off of your first box. Click here to to get your first box!
