Symptoms of mould toxicity can vary depending on individual sensitivity and the type of mould present. Common symptoms include respiratory issues like coughing and wheezing, sinus congestion, sore throat, skin irritation, headaches, fatigue, and worsening of asthma symptoms. In severe cases, exposure to mould toxins can lead to neurological symptoms such as difficulty concentrating, memory problems, and mood changes. If you suspect mould toxicity, it’s essential to consult with a healthcare professional for proper evaluation and treatment.

Where we Begin

It requires a holistic approach. When working through this with a naturopath, firstly, they’ll dig into your health history, understanding your lifestyle, and any mould exposure you’ve had. They may even at this point organise specific testing.

Once you pinpoint the sources of mould, whether it’s at home, work, creating a mould-resistant environment is key to preventing ongoing issues.

In this part of the world, mould itself is difficult to avoid, but if we are sensitive to mould and/or genetically have a weakened disposition to mould, then it’s best to ensure it is not in your immediate environment.

The Next Steps

Then comes the mop-up phase. Naturopaths may suggest a range of nutrients, herbs, or therapies that support your body’s natural detox and elimination processes, using binders to attach and take any mould out of your system.

Nutrition plays a big role too. They’d work with you on a personalised diet, so the body is in the best fit state to create change and reduce reactivity.

Balancing your immune system is crucial. They’ll work on modulating your body’s inflammatory response, bringing it back to a healthy equilibrium.

And after that, it depends where the mould has impacted your body – this will all be worked through if relevant.

Back to Optimal Health

Keep in mind; this isn’t a one-size-fits-all thing.
Naturopaths create personalised plans based on how your body responds. Regular check-ins help them tweak the plan as needed. It’s a collaborative process to support your body in healing and finding balance, which does in many cases involve other professionals too.
