Dr. Dennis and I speak to PBS American Health Journal and discuss the role of mold in chronic sinusitis. Many of us don’t just suffer from a sinus affliction alone and there is a reason for that. I hope this helps so many of you. I love hearing from a lot of you who’s journey has mirrored mine. Keep it coming and pass on to anyone it may help!
I wrote an article called How to Recover from Toxic Mold Exposure (How Long Does it Take) and below is an excerpt from that post.
Steps to Aid in Recovery
- Remove yourself from the toxic environment. The most important first step and probably the hardest. It will be almost impossible to improve if you continue to expose yourself to the toxic chemicals.
- Detox. This specific detox plan posted by Mold Free Living was written by Dr. Donald Dennis, an ENT who specializes in mold related illness. Speak to your doctor before starting any detox plan.
- Juice greens! Greens are extremely anti-fungal and so is ginger, lime, and carrots to name a few. Juicing is an easy way to get larger quantities in you fast! There are two ways to get all of these amazing nutrients into your body. I have both a Vitamix and a juicer. I will do a post on the difference between the two. A quick simplified explanation is that a juicer will remove the fiber where a blender such as a Vitamix retains the fiber. Both are good and serve different purposes which I will explain in a future post, but the important thing is to start getting these powerful anti-fungal nutrients into your body.
- Visit a functional doctor. I wrote an article about what tests you can ask your doctor to run, click here if you would like to read it.
- Invest in a quality air filter to remove mold spores in the air.
- Use quality anti-fungal products. There is a wonderful company called Microbalance which specializes in anti-fungal products for your home, clothes, and nose. I personally spray my home with the EC3 Mold Solution concentrate about once per month. They also have supplements specifically created to support the damage that can be done to the pituitary gland caused by mold.
- Stop eating sugar and foods high in carbohydrates It contributes to fungal overgrowth. See my recipe section for alternatives to your favorite foods.
- Rinse your sinuses. If your issue is in your sinuses, rinsing them with an anti-fungal solution such as CitriDrops can be helpful. Rinsing the nose can help clear out pathogenic bacteria, viruses, and fungus. I still irrigate my sinuses most days.
