I still can't get completely away from the mold. It's everywhere where I live. Don't underestimate the impact that even small, random exposures on a regular basis have on your body. Just a little causes chronic inflammation. All the abx or herbs in the world won't negate the inflammatory response that mold, mycotoxins, and mVOCS from water damaged buildings have on susceptible people. Once you become hypersensitive, it takes drastic measures to turn that switch off.
I don't see how anyone gets totally away from mold. It's in the soil, the lawn...etc.
I go for a walk on a trail in the forest...and sometimes smell it.
It can be in the toilet tank....in nooks and crannies of the windows...etc.
I think in small amounts we should be able to handle it...unless we're susceptible.
But, not sure how anyone avoids it altogether.Extreme mold avoiders go camping in pristine outdoor environments where there is little pollution or outdoor mold. They (and educated CIRS folks) also clean fanatically - toilet tanks, window sills, bathtub drains, washing machines, etc. They learn where mold hides and remove it constantly. They alter their living habits and indoor environment to reduce the amount of outdoor mold they bring in and make the indoor environment less conducive to mold growth. They also reduce EMF exposure indoors, which Klinghardt says greatly increases the amount of mycotoxins produced by indoor mold.
Extreme mold avoidance is not for half-hearted people.Yup. it's everywhere. we had an issue with our washing machine. My husband had to take it apart (the spindle...etc) and it was gross what was in there. I'm sure some of it would be mold spores.
Spill a cup of coffee on the carpet...or even the hardwood/laminate floor...I'm sure a bit goes through - and can't be cleaned unless you pull up the floor.
For EMF - you turn off the breaker every night? Or just the Wifi?
the smart meter...do you get rid of that? I'm not sure if we can now that we have one.
At least our attic is bone dry...no mold there...and the windows...- well - what I can see looks good.
