The reason I brought up what a herx "could" do to a person was for everyone who is reading this thread, I didn't mean it was you personally that suffered that type of herx. What led me to even post about
herxes was that you mentioned you had a 2 month herx.
As far as mold, etc. I keep a list of links that pertain to people that my links apply to. The link below is from a blog which addresses mold, how to get rid of it, chemical sensitivities, etc.: hansacenter.blogspot.com/2016/09/mold-illness-and-dealing-with-sources.html
Part of the above blog states this:
Bio-Toxin Protocol: Biological Medicine Approach
This is the Biological Medicine approach to lab tests requested by specialized mold physicians: Dr. Richie Shoemaker, Dr. Mary Ackerley as well as my clinical experience with chronically ill patients.
Removal from exposure
Many mold sufferers feel trapped. They don’t know how far they should go to remediate the mold they have in their dwelling. Many resort to abandoning their dwelling place and sometimes the families that stay there. I am not saying you should stay in a mold infested home but there are some things you can do to help. Ideally you could use a mold test called ERMI (Environmental Relative Moldiness Index). You want to try and get this number under 2. To clean your environment I have what I would use as a wash solution based on the Essential Oil Tea Tree (Melaleuca) due to its effects on mold.
An easy wash solution to make:
Use Melapower 6x with a few extra bottles of Melaleuca Oil added in.
· Remedy main area of concern by removing all things from affected area of home
· Move everything outside under a tent and let air get into everything.
· Wash walls with solution above
· Wash hard surfaces with solution above
· Clean Vents and HVAC Coils using the solution above

The more complicated physiological ways to aid in your mold recovery are as follows:
It is important to eliminate the toxic burden that accompanies mold. There are many ways to achieve this. We utilize some of the best naturally based binders. One of those is Enterosgel which is based on organic silicon and designed to remove toxic substances out of the body as well as to regenerate proper microbiomes. Enterosgel destroys pathogenic microorganisms in the GI tract.
Enterosgel absorbs the byproducts of microorganism breakdown. Gram-negative and gram-positive microbes as well as Candida and molds succumb to adhesion and destruction, but the product does not adhere nor destroy saprophyte microflora of the digestive tract like the species of (Lactobacteria, Bifidobacteria, etc.).
PureBlack Carbonized Bamboo is effective as a mycotoxin binder. Other methods of toxin removal you may have available to you are: Infrared Sauna, Activated Charcoal, Chlorella, Detox Baths, Ammonia Support, Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF), and Cholestpure by Pure Encapsulations, Inc., taken on an empty stomach.
Aid the body’s removal of antibiotic resistant Staph within the nasal cavity. This bacterium further interferes with the body’s natural immune system and depletes MSH, a hormone responsible for proper function of multiple neuro-immune pathways.
We use various products such as Argentyn 23™ which is one of the most researched and the most effective nano-particle silver hydrosol, used to aid the body’s natural antimicrobial defenses. Argentyn 23 is designed to provide safe and precise levels of functional silver. Argentyn 23™ features a unique particle size (average 0.0008 microns) and ultra-fine dispersion that may enhance bioavailability of silver ions. The silver content is 99.99% pure. Argentyn 23™ is a powerful, natural antibiotic and disinfectant.
When Argentyn's silver particles enter a microbe, it inhibits the microbe's metabolic enzymes necessary for energy utilization. Microbes cannot build a resistance to the action of silver. In fact, there are no known organisms that can completely withstand the impact of silver. Other products we use include: Jernigan Nutraceuticals, Inc. products, Quintessence, RainTree Products, Researched Nutritionals, and biofilm disrupters, such as Protease.
Correcting Your Body's Internal Environment to Combat Fungal Infections:
Many people don't understand the need to remove gluten from the body. One important rule to help with mold toxicity is to correct gluten antibody. To do this one must assume you are gluten sensitive or even celiac and remove it from your diet. Gluten acts upon the tight bonds of the intestinal wall and blood brain barrier. These bonds are called Zonulin. If Zonulin’s hold on the cells is loosened, the gut and subsequently the blood brain barrier may become permeable. Removal of gluten as an offender of intestinal and brain integrity is of upmost importance.
Hormonal imbalances are a large factor in overcoming many illnesses, including that of mold illness. We use Labrix or Diagnos-Techs which are great salivary hormone labs that can be performed for relativity low upfront costs. It is important to make sure to test estrogens, testosterone, progesterone, DHEA, and 24-hour cortisol levels.
12 years well ~ used Dr. Jernigan's protocol from his book about
Biological Medicine (used Borrelogen, Microbojen and Neuro-Antitox).
I still detox even though healed and drink Green Vibrance. I come back to help others for others helped me when I was sick. Pay it forward!
