The Rest of the Story...

Aside from the toxic mold that one may have already been exposed to, one is already immunosuppressed.  The next factor to consider is very important; the mycotoxins one has been exposed to are a carcinogen, but there is another side to this double edged sword.  With respect to the human immune system, the average human being has an average of 5% to 20% of killer fighting cells in the human body.  These are the cells that help fight off such abnormal cells as cancer. 

With the research that has been done, mold patients have an average of 2% of the killer fighting cells in their systems.  With this in mind, and all the literature that is available to us, we now know that once one is exposed to indoor fungal exposure, there is a good chance they will be predisposed to cancer for the rest of their lives. Therefore, it is extremely important to protect the immune system and safeguard the body as well as possible.  This can be done in many ways.  Below are some suggestions:

  • Diet must be followed.
  • Supplements/vitamins/medication to nourish the body and boost the immune system.
  • Acidophilus (from any health food store) to replace lactobacillus acidophilus/maintain healthy flora in the lower intestine. Do not get the type with FOS as this is made with the aspergillus fermentation process.
  • Detoxifying by means of effective treatment prescribed by your medical provider.
  • Drink distilled water to maintain healthy flora in the lower intestine and control Herxheimer response.
  • Exercise recommended by your physician.
  • Swimming is highly recommended.
  • Positive outlook.
  • Stay focused on health.
  • Don't take meds that physicians prescribed to you previously unless you speak to your specialist who is treating you for fungal exposure.
  • Avoid re-exposure at all costs.
  • Let go of your anger and negative energy.


All of the above items are extremely important for a good prognosis.   Through my research, it appears as though the people who are always angry seem to remain constantly ill, while others who appear to have a positive outlook and try to be patient seem to feel better physically.

Another feature we should eliminate for obvious reasons from our homes is unsanitary carpeting.  In the early 1980's many European and Asian countries that are more advanced than us, including Germany; banned indoor carpeting from new homes reporting it as a health menace.  It not only traps dust mites and allergens, it maintains a healthy environment for mold and moisture to live in.
