Valid Mold Info Sources Online

Updated: Mar 23, 2022


Looking back now, I realize I have been affected profoundly over the course of my life by mold and mycotoxins, and mostly recently VERY BADLY AFFECTED by the exposure in this home we'd been in for 6 years.


These compounded issues shoved me forcefully into depths of mold and biotoxin illness I hadn't experienced before. I hit my rock bottom of health. It was a long slow fall I didn't recognize, because I DIDNT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT TOXINS OR MOLD before this.


Now I constantly cruise for new sources of valid information in the areas of:

mold,

biotoxins,

inflammation,

dietary health,

histamines,

healing modalities,

coinfections,

and PANS/PANDAS research and healing.


I used to follow accounts and webpages full of fear of this newly diagnosed Mold situation I was in- searching and grasping for anything and some understanding that would help me get out of where I was.


Now that I have: accepted my situation, made personal and environmental changes, and am seeing progress in my recovery- I still follow the most valid accounts accounts I had found for more information to put in my toolkit.


Now, I follow them with appreciation for their content and gratitude. So many doctors, remediators, and regular people have experienced mold illness or biotoxin illness and they actually WANT to share education to help others.


Education is my crutch if all else fails, and because I have children growing up in this toxic world I need to ensure I am doing right by them by educating them (in a developmentally appropriate manner) about all of these things they are encountering- because they have to grow up navigating their own lives and being advocates for their own health.


I never want them to know what I have known the past two years. I never want anyone else to either.


HERE ARE MY FAVORITE SOURCES TO FOLLOW FOR VALID INFORMATION regarding all things Mold- and what else comes along with Mold.

Exposing Mold

A trio discusses EVERYTHING related to mold, each episode of their podcast highlighting a different aspect. Their website is a look into many of the topics they've covered on the podcast with world-renown leaders in various medical and environmental fields. They're rooted in sharing concern for the global mold crisis and working on demanding governmental/societal acknowledgement that mold is a tremendous issue that needs fixing.


One of the hosts is Erik Johnson- one of the first people to be labeled with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and M.E. He has been waging a life-long battle to make information about mold and how it affects the human body known.

He also educates about the profound internal conditions that arise from mold and mycotoxins, and how these symptoms generally are given a new syndrome or alternate disease label by western medicine- while their relationship to mold or biotoxin exposure ignored and untreated. He is an unstoppable force in the mold advocacy world, full of knowledge.

Big Resource for those considering Mold Avoidance*

Great source of info on mold/lyme/infections and has coined "kill, bind, sweat" as a detox program strategy. While her content is great- rarely it does get political and that leaves a bit of a weird vibe if you don't align with her views, (I don't exactly.)


Jamie Cooper "Moldy Boy"

Absolutely the funniest person I follow in the mold world, he is always ready with a hilarious take on situations that we fighting mold illness encounter. Wonderful at creating memes and short videos, but also a treasure cove of knowledge about mold- and open to sharing his own journey of recovery.

EFT Emotional Freedom Technique or "Tapping"

EFT is a form of energy psychology that combines the mind, the body, and its energy field to treat emotional and physical illness. Research has shown that EFT effectively treats anxiety, depression, addiction, symptoms of trauma, and a host of other emotional and physical problems.

EFT is based on the Chinese theory of energetic meridians. Chinese medicine believes that we all have meridians, which are energetic pathways that run through our bodies (similar to how blood runs through our veins). When we are sick, those meridians are blocked. To heal, needles are placed in specific acupuncture points on the body to unblock the energy to restore health. Tapping also uses energetic meridians, except tapping with your fingers is done on the specific energy points instead of using needles.

Tapping is simple, easy, and effective. Research has shown that it can actually improve brain structure and function. It can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical issues from insomnia to headaches, anxiety, depression, and trauma.
