Although there has been more research done recently on mold illness, it remains unrecognized by many doctors. People suffering from mold sickness often endure misdiagnosis after misdiagnosis while their health and quality of life continue to decline, not realizing that the cause of their suffering exists in their home or workplace and continues to spread.
The mold illness and Lyme disease connection
In his 2005 book, Mold Warriors, Ritchie Shoemaker, MD directed the attention of many practitioners to the connection between Lyme disease and mold sickness. Many people with Lyme disease appear more susceptible to mold sickness.
Having one illness can predispose people to other health issues. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has already established that mold can trigger asthma attacks in asthmatics and ongoing exposure to mold spores is likely to lead to asthma in otherwise healthy children.
Healing from mold toxicity
If you suspect you or a loved one has mold sickness, start by seeking out a doctor who specializes in mold-related illnesses. They may recommend mycotoxin testing, but there’s no quick fix to mold illness. Healing from it requires a multifaceted and comprehensive approach. You must start by eliminating any mold problem within your home.
