I don't have cinnamon e.o. at hand at the moment, but I have it back at home, so will be trying it out. I have here 4 thieves so I tried adding that to the oregano.
So far, I would say this is working, as the nerves in my teeth have calmed down, not entirely, but definitely worth mentioning. I have a long road ahead of me.
ess.oils altering microbiome seem legit to me, but I think I have no other choice. I remember my llnd saying about
some tincture or a plant, can't remember, that it kills patogenic bacteria, but it doesn't affect the good bacteria, so let's hope this works in a similar way. Also, a few hours of break in between inhalations, definitely helps mucous membrane restore itself from the possible stress.
As for this debate between dr shoemaker and dr brewer, noone is more confused than me, but I read some place that this is an unbiased perspective on it https://www.survivingmold.com/sharon_kramer_110915.pdf
Of course, I still don't get any of this, but perhaps you might understand. It looks like the problem is really of political nature, rather than scientific (?). Anyway, too bad for us, as there isn't a common ground in treating mold problems, and not enough scientific data.
[quote]I find it far more confounding and life-altering than Lyme/co. Sometimes I wonder if mold is really all I’m dealing with. But if that were the case, why do I herx on herbs?
I agree, I think mold problem can really look like there is no way out, BUT...
I was probably always susceptible to mold, but it wasn't untill I moved to the UK that my problems started. It's because of the climate, and the way rented houses are maintained, and built ultimately. It's becoming increasingly complicated to wrap my life around the possible toxic mould exposure everywhere, home or workplace. Perhaps it will turn out to be impossible. But I am the living proof that there are places on Earth that are mould free, and you can live normally, move, work, go to shops.. The climate is dry, and the houses are made of solid materials, and noone even thinks of mold, and noone knows anything about
illness caused by it, because it's not as huge of a problem, or it's even inexistent. I know that there is this possibility of moving to a place like this, as long as I can find work there. Nowadays, that also might not be that much of a problem with possibility of working remotely, especially if you're coming from a country with stable economy as US is. Imagine living on a small dry greek island
There's also a lot of american tourists in these places, you wouldn't be isolated. I hope we haven't messed too much with mother Nature, as the climate is staring to change everywhere.
Please keep this idea at the back of your mind.
I posted yesterday a link to a blog of a woman that looks so healthy, after 20 years of chronic llness. She moved to a warmer climate, probably drier too. I can't help but think mold was one of the key players in her illness. But look at her now..
Perhaps you herx on herbs because they might be affecting mold too? Or you're just very sensitive. Or just being continuously exposed to mold, which is the constant driver of inflammation and chaos (like in my case).
Lapis, I am looking at the ingredients of A-FNG, and there are cinnamon and eucalyptus there among other things. Perhaps essential oils of other herbs that are part of the tincture could help with sinus mold...
