Medical Testing Related to the Exposure of Toxic Mold

Being ill because of toxic mold exposure can lead to losing your job, friends, family, and even your home and possessions!!  If you continue to stay ill and doctors cannot diagnose or misdiagnose you your physical condition can continue to get worse!! 

Many medical doctors will tell you that Mold Sickness is not real, or that mold cannot make you sick, this couldn't be farther than the truth....but it is not their fault.  They were never trained on Mold Sickness.  About 5% of medical professionals are even aware of what Black Mold Toxicity is or even know how to test for it. Make sure you are dealing with a doctor who understands Biotoxins and Mycotoxins.

It is important to get the right tests the first time so that you can understand what you have been exposed to. As with all mold, bacteria or infections if they are left untreated or misdiagnosed a person’s condition will worsen.

IMPORTANT: *If a doctor wants to give you a blood test/allergy test (igG, igM, igA) for mold he/she probably DOES NOT have the slightest clue about toxic mold.  This means they are only working off of a western medical phylosophy of "allergies".  Toxic molds DO NOT hang out in the blood stream because the blood has a high level of oxygen.  Toxic molds do not thrive in an oxygen rich environment so they are basically undected in blood tests.  Find a new doctor if your doctor starts to suggest this.

HLA-DR Mold Genetic Lab Testing  (ordered by an MD) - Do your genes reflect a change in a genetic mutation that creates more of a susceptibility to toxic molds?

  • Description: HLA-DR Mold Genetic Testing blood test measures the genes necessary for you to know if you might be susceptible to biotoxic mold illness.  

    Human Leukocyte Antigens (HLAs), are found on the surface of nearly every cell in the human body.  They help the immune system tell the difference between body tissue and foreign substances.

    The immune response genes are found on chromosome six.  Patients could have two alleles, copies of genes (for each gene, one allele is inherited from a person's father, and the other is inherited from a person's mother), out of approximately 10 possible, as part of their genotype.  Based on Dr. Shoemaker's data during his years of treating suspected patients exposed to biotoxins, in normal populations compared to international registries of gene frequencies of HLA DR, we know the frequency of mold illness-susceptible patients approximates 24% of the normally distributed population.  Almost a quarter of the normal population were genetically susceptible to chronic mold illness.  Three quarters were not. 

  • Interpretation
  • Test Cost:  The cost for this test seems to have increased with demand.  Patients are reporting between $400-$600 through Labcorp authorized by an MD and on the LifeExtension website online the rate for self cash pay is ranging between $300-$400.

Standard Medical Labs your MD or Family Dr Should Run

Metabolic Panels: 

(CMP) * Comprehensive Metabolic Panel - This test is always covered by insurance and can be ordered by any practicing physician.  This is the general blood work done by all doctors and ER doctors that show the main important life functions. 

(BMP) * Basic Metabolic Panel - This test is always covered by insurance and can be ordered by any practicing physician.  This is the general blood work done by all doctors and ER doctors that show the main important life functions. 

*99% of the time these tests will look fine.  Toxic mold has a bad habit of making this test look great thus people get a false feeling that they are ok based on a normal CMP/BMP.  However, this couldn't be farther from the truth. 

Vitamin D levels - This is usually very low in persons exposed to mold.  A possible cause for this could be SIBO.  SIBO can block absorption of VitaminD.  You need more (10am - 1pm) direct skin sun exposure to convert to raise vitD/ if no sun you'll to supplement D3 under doctor supervision. I recommend ONLY using non-GMO verified VitaminD so be sure to check with your practitioner and make sure they are offering you a non-GMO verified supplement.  If they are not or you are choosing not to be under a practitioners care, you can supplement with "Garden of Life" brand Vitamin D.  "Garden of Life" is verified as non-GMO. (warning about GMO's: it introduces a fungal element to the product) You can get "Garden of Life" VitaminD HERE
Ranges:  <30 (Critically Low) <50 (Deficient) 50-80 (Optimal) 80-100 (Treat cancer, heart disease,chronic illness) >100 (Excess)

Idione Deficiency - this is common in moldies.  If after testing you find out that you are iodine deficient like I was you can purchase a high quality idione supplement.  https://thetruthaboutcancer.com/iodine-deficiency-symptoms/?gl=5aa18045210d2a1808f85229  http://www.optimox.com/iodine-study-21

Full Hormone & Thyroid Labs  - TSH lab tests are usually useless,(these are always innacurate) just an FYI.  To really find out if your thyroid is not functioning correctly you can order a "DUTCH HORMONE TEST" from a (Functional Practitioner or Clinician ONLY.  Regular doctors do not know what a Dutch Hormone Test is). You can order the DUTCH TEST on your own HERE but remember....having the Dutch Test does not solve anything unless you have a qualified clinician that can review and interpret the results as well as create an entire treatment plan for you using natural supplements to fix the hormones that are not working correctly. (Functional Docs are good sources for this)


TESTS BELOW THIS POINT ARE USELESS UNLESS YOU HAVE A
QUALIFIED DOCTOR, NATUROPATH, INTEGRATIVE, FUNCTIONAL, HOMEOPATHIC practitioner or clinician
to INTERPERET and TREAT YOU


 

Labs Related to "COMMON ILLNESSES" Often Seen with Toxic Mold Illness

Toxic mold releases (Mycotoxin) biotoxins into the body that can alter the entire functionality of the body including the immune system, endocrine system, respiratory tract, Dermal system, Nervous system and Detoxification Processes.  FACT, most mycotoxins are actually classified as "IMMUNE SUPPRESSORS & NERVOUS SYSTEM inhibitors .  This means that when your body's immune system, nervous system & hormonal system is weakened it opens the door to ADDITIONAL diagnosed illnesses, infections, complications and pathoges.  Some of the most common (comorbid illnesses) toxic mold sufferers get in addition to mycotoxicosis are:

Candida, SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) SIBO bacteria blocks absorption of essential vitamins and minerals in the small intesting leading to nutritional deficiencies, Mast Cell Activation can trigger at any time releasing too many mast cells and histamine reactions, Parasite Infections, Heavy Metal Toxicity (Usually mercury), Viruses (Can activate or you can catch new ones), Detox systems (Liver, Skin, Pancreas, Skin) can become dysfunctional and trap toxins like heavy metals, chemicals.  Glutathione production can slow down. Methylation processes can be hindered.  Hormones may start or stop producing adequately, Metabolic processes don't function properly. 


Get tested for Lyme Disease - (Lyme Disease (Borrelia spp) DNA, Qualitative, Real-Time PCR) Lyme Disease can mimic the same symptoms as mold.  Also a high percentage of people with mold illness also have Lyme Disease and never knew it because both Lyme and Mold are in the same classification of biotoxins and they weaken the immune system in the same way.  You can order your own Western Blot Lyme Disease test from www.IGENEX.com HERE

  • Co-Infections of Lyme Disease

Babesia microti Antibodies (IgG, IgM), IFA
 

Malaria/Babesia/Other Blood Parasites
 

Bartonella DNA, Qualitative Real-Time PCR
 

Ehrlichia chaffeensis DNA, Real-Time PCR
 

SIBO Testing (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth)  Unfortunately a lot of Americans have a minor case of SIBO due to their high carbohydrate and sugar diets way before they were exposed to toxic mold.  However, after getting exposed this phenomenon known as SIBO can literally bring one to their knees and make them extremely ill.  These bacteria in the small intestine cause (constipation, diarhea, cramping, nausea, brain fog, depression, anxiety attacks, panic attacks, nervousness, shortness of breath, fast heart rate, distended belly).  If you have any of these symptoms it is most likely that being exposed to toxic mold made this worse and (THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED BEFORE YOU CAN HEAL FROM MOLD).  The test you need to take is a hydrogen/methane lactu-lose 3 hour breath test.  After all my research I have found that there are only a handful of experts (maybe 300?) in the US that REALLY know how to eradicate SIBO.  Most western doctors know about SIBO but do not know how it relates to toxic mold thus they are not educated enough to really eradicate it completely.  You'll need an expert at reading the test and gives you a customized treatment plan that is very specific to your test results.  *DO NOT TRY TO SELF TREAT SIBO: It is a complicated issue and really requires an expert.  (functional docs are great)

Candida Testing - Candida DNA, Qualitative, Real-Time PCR, Serum or you can also get Candida results in a Gi-map test from a functional provider.
 

Get tested for Pyroluria  (Pyrole: Kryptopyrole, Zinc blood, Copper blood and if you have psychiatric symptoms the best way to check for methylation issues related to these mental symptoms is through a "WHOLE BLOOD HISTAMINE" test.   - Read this important article on Copper imbalances and how they are bad for fungal infections  HERE   Besides all of the normal mold symptoms I had severe mental illness and I don't mean the kind where you do crazy things or are not in your right mind...I mean...OCD, panic, anxiety to the point of I couldn't even function as a human being, depression and suicidal, crying all day long...asking my kids to please not leave because I was afraid of "WHAT?" I had no idea...my brain was just so confused. 

A local friend came over and told me about his daughter and how she recovered from all of these same symptoms and found out that environmental toxins can trigger something called Pyroluria. 

For a while I was in denial until I literally had to go to a behavioral health center for a week I couldn't even cook for myself it got so bad.

I was referred by my friend to http://www.PyroluriaTesting.com and www.MensahMedical.com as a last resort. After all testing came back I was both shocked and relieved to know that mold in fact had triggered this condition called pyroluria. I found out that mold had caused an imbalance in my blood chemistry and I was severely deficient in zinc....when a person is deficient in zinc, copper is not able to be detoxed or removed from the body and pyrole proteins start duplicating in the body at alarming levels. Pyrole depletes B6 so the imbalance then became Low zinc, high copper, B6 deficient, high pyrole. This combo can dibilitate a person to the point of suicide, anxiety, ocd, schitzo and more. Copper is a conductor of electricity in the body so using wifi and EMF exposure increased the excitability in my brain 10-fold....I was literally shaking 24 hours a day. 

Dr. Mensah met with me online and gave me a custom protocol of the exact amount of zinc, copper chelators and B6 plus I consulted with his referral for diet advice for low folate...all of this combined and I have only had ONE anxiety attack in 3 months. I feel some anxiety and very little depression now...I am FINALLY not paranoid about anything anymore and all this has changed in a short period of time..only 3 months.  https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/holistic-psychiatry/201709/copper-toxicity-common-cause-psychiatric-symptoms

marCONS (testing and treatment)  Every building that has water damage unfortunately has way more than just toxic mold that contaminate the home.  Along with toxic molds, dangerous antibiotic resistant bacterias grow along-side these other biotoxins and you breathe them in through your nose and sinuses.  These bacteria can lodge into deep into the sinus cavity and are usually NOT going to be easy to eradicate with standard antibiotic treatments.  marCONS is an antibiotic resistant staph infection that resides deep in the nose of 80% of people with exposure to a toxic mold as well as andother chronic inflammatoryif you have this bacteria in your sinuses you cannot detox properly from mold.  MARCoNS is a resistent bacteria found usually in the sinus and nasal passages. Also, when these marCONS are present it is VERY HARD to recover from toxic mold because of the biofilms that surround these relentless bacterias.  For this reason, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you order a marCONS test below and have a qualified practitioner test you for MARCoNS - (Multiple Antibiotic Resistant Coagulase Negative Staphylococci) You can order the test HERE. 

As a bonus: Here is hands-down the BEST blog post on the internet about testing for it and ways to kill it. HERE

I used 2 specific all natural sprays:  "Argentyn 23" nasal spray to eradicate fungus and bacteria from my nose and sinuses.  It completely illiminates the use for antibiotics (which do not work, by the way on MARCons)  It is 100% natural and safe for adults and children.  It is made of silver hydrosol.  The best place to buy it is HERE

I also used "Xlear" which contains Grapefruit Seed Extract and Xylitol which are excellent antibacterial agents in fighting any type of sinus infection.  Xlear is completely "all natural" and completely safe for adults and children so there are no chemicals or drugs involved in the sinuses.    You can get it HERE

Heavy MetalsTesting - If you have a high concentration of heavy metals in your system (from Mercury Amalgams in your teeth, foods, cookware) you would NEVER know it and it COULD be that this is your problem instead of mold OR both!!  If it is both you cannot detox properly from mold until heavy metals are removed via extracting your mercury teeth fillings and also chelation or some other method.  Check out this girls grueling story and experience with heavy metal poisoning: http://www.xojane.com/it-happened-to-me/it-happened-to-me-a-misdiagnosis-made-me-sick-for-a-decade

Ammonia levels -  Other Illnesses like Lyme Disease can increase the amount of ammonia production in your body.  Too much ammonia in the body can be toxic.  Test your levels of ammonia. This is ALSO important to know for toxic mold illness because if you have high levels of ammonia in your body you should never take an ammonia bath *Some alternative mold pracitioners recommend taking an ammonia bath to neutralize mycotoxin in the body. 
 

Viruses FULL Viral Load Testing - When exposed to a biotoxin like toxic mold these biotoxins are usually considered immunosupressive which means that your immune system is now vulnerable to a slew of viruses that can be just as bad if not worse than the toxic mold exposure itself.  Please get tested for these viruses.  Most of these tests here can be run by a regular MD.  Doctors might think you are nuts...but your health is important so stress that you want these tests done.

Shoemaker Testing

*Note:  This is a testing panel that is unique in it's origin by Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker and should only be used when you are seeing a Shoemaker trained doctor.  Testing without following the Shoemaker protocol is pointless because the testing is used to follow the exact protocol that Shoemaker created.  Shoemaker protocol is a pharmaceutical method of treating inflammation.  This method is very controversial because medications cause inflammation and toxicity to the liver.  Do your research before attempting to take this route as it can be harmful to those who are extremely toxic, inflammed and whos liver's are not healthy enough to ingest pharmaceutical medications. 

Your Shoemaker Trained Doctor will order these tests for you:  


VIP - Vasoactive Intestinal Polypeptide


Explanation:
Vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) is a neuroregulatory hormone with receptors in the hypothalamus.  This hormone/cytokine regulates peripheral cytokine responses, pulmonary artery pressures, and inflammatory responses throughout the body.

Low VIP levels are present in mold illness patients.  This leads to unusual shortness of breath, especially in exercise.  To date, every multiple chemical sensitivity patient Shoemaker has seen (over 500) have had low VIP.  VIP plays a role similar to MSH in regulating inflammatory responses.

With respect to the digestive system, VIP seems to induce smooth muscle relaxation (lower esophageal sphincter, stomach, gallbladder), stimulate secretion of water into pancreatic juice and bile, and cause inhibition of gastric acid secretion and absorption from the intestinal lumen, which can lead to chronic, watery diarrhea.

VIP replacement, when used according to a strictly administered protocol, has proven to be fabulously effective in returning chronically fatigued patients back to a normal life.  Do not use VIP if you are exposed to mold (with ERMI values greater than 2); if you fail a VCS test; or if you have a MARCoNSpresent in your nose.

MSH - Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone

Explanation
Alpha melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH) has multiple anti-inflammatory and neurohormonal regulatory functions, exerting regulatory control on peripheral cytokine release, as well as on both anterior and posterior pituitary function.

In mold illness, MSH will be too low in over 95% of patients.  This means increased susceptibility to mold illness, ongoing fatigue, pain, hormone abnormalities, mood swings, and much more.  MSH is a hormone, called a regulatory neuropeptide, and it controls many other hormones, inflammation pathways, and basic defenses against invading microbes.  Without MSH, bad things happen; chronic sleep disorders with non-restful sleep develop, and endorphin production is reduced, so chronic pain follows.

Alternative Methods of testing for possible presence of Toxic Molds in the body

 

Field Control Therapy® (FCT)

This is a unique, deep, complex and effective system of medicine. FCT is scientific medicine that offers real health solutions.

It uniquely integrates three sciences:

1. The Paradigm of LIVING SYSTEMS: Perspective, Priority, Essence, The Nature of Reality...
2. The Power of INFORMATION FIELDS: Physics, Bioresonance Testing, Information Medicine...
3. The Precision of DISEASE CAUSATION: Digital Forensics, Key Toxins, EMFs, Infections, Lifestyle...FCT identifies key toxins underlying illness and treats with ‘causative homeopathy’ to restore healthy cellular functioning.  This means it finds the "CAUSE" of your illness, also finds "WHERE" it is located in the body and last but not least it goes "DIRECTLY" to the source of the cause and "GENTLY" removes it from the body, "NATURALLY" (without drugs)

Approximately $500 per month for 6 months

(Not all FCT practitioners are skilled to handle toxic mold)

FCT is a synthesis of knowledge incorporating physics, quantum physics, energy related modern biology/biophysics, toxicology, immunology, immuno-toxicology, endocrinology and laws governing complex living systems.
