Mold is a biotoxin, it's a living organism, that can cause a multi-faceted syndrome. That's right, there are over 100 symptoms of mold toxicity and one of them is weight gain. Leptin resistance can increase fat cells andinsulin resistance in muscle cells can decrease muscle mass.

What is toxic mold syndrome? Toxic mold based illness is a very prevalent and under diagnosed condition that can manifest in many different ways, including with symptoms that are exclusively psychiatric, such as depression, anxiety, attentional problems, brain fog and insomnia. Mold growth is initiated through waterdamage.

Can mold cause neurological problems? Humanexposure to molds, mycotoxins, and water-damaged buildings can cause neurologic and neuropsychiatric signs and symptoms.

Can you smell mold? Mold does not always have a strong smell but when it is present, it's often describedas musty. Others have described mold smelling earthy, meaty or resembling the odor of wet socks or rotten wood. For many homeowners, the smell is unpleasant and pungent.

How do I get rid of mycotoxins? I also recommend liver detox support like glutathione, NAC, milk thistle, minerals, vitamin C andthe B vitamins. Sweating via exercise or a sauna is another great way to reduce mycotoxin levels in the body. Although air filters in the home can drastically reduce the level of mycotoxins, they are not a permanent fix.
