Mold, Related Sickness & EMF
The Connection Between Toxic Mold, Environmental Sickness and Electromagnetic Radiation
Are you experiencing symptoms like fatigue, difficulty concentrating, nausea, dizziness, heart palpitations, digestive issues, red skin, allergies, suppressed immune system or skin tingling?
These symptoms could be due to a toxic mold exposure or other type of Environmentally Acquired Illness (EAI), sometimes called Chronic Inflammatory Syndrome (CIRS).
A person with mold illness is also more likely to become more sensitive to chemicals and develop multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS). Likewise, a person who suffers from MCS or Lyme disease is more likely to become more sensitive to mold and other toxins.
A connection has also been made between head injuries and mold sensitivity. Other studies point to a genetic component.
But did you know that EAI/CIRS conditions and their symptoms can be aggravated by exposures to everyday Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs)? It happens often.
For our clients who are recovering from sensitivity to environmental toxins, reducing exposures to a variety of EMFs often provides relief from numerous symptoms! Contact us to arrange for a specialized assessment with solutions just for you.
EMFs May Increase Certain Pathogenic Organisms
Some ionizing (X-rays and γ-rays) and non-ionizing radiations (radio-frequencies, microwaves, etc.) have been shown to cause mycotoxin proliferation. This phenomenon is of interest to doctors, biologists and even astrobiologists as Space Station mold survives high doses of cosmic radiation.
Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, founder of the Sophia Health Institute, highlighted a Swiss study showing that wireless radiation increased the production of mycotoxins in fungi by up to 600 times compared to non-exposed organisms.
Microbiology researchers have also produced studies showing that yeast strains grow more quickly when exposed to EMFs. In addition, RF radiation from wi-fi routers and mobile phones have been shown to make bacteria such as Listeria and E. coli more proliferative and resistant to antibiotic treatment.
Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) are a type of radiation that can be absorbed by your body through induction and resonance. When these fields pass a certain threshold, they can change the functioning of your cell membrane and trigger alterations in the extracellular matrix.
Eventually, it can become pathological and disrupt proteins, enzymatic reactions, DNA translation-mutation, and cellular processes such as interrupting detoxification pathways. This can cause free radicals, which are unstable, highly reactive, and highly destructive atoms to spread like wildfire through your body – causing oxidative stress in multiple body systems.
For the EAI/CIRS sufferer, this increased inflammation compromises an already fragile immune system and destabilizes the autonomic nervous system. This disruption of your cells can throw your whole body out of balance – leading to a many unpleasant, if not unbearable, symptoms.
Overlooked & Misunderstood
Symptoms That Stigmatize
According to The International Society for Environmentally Acquired Illness (ISEAI), sufferers can experience any of a wide range of severe symptoms including:
- Brain fog, memory problems, loss of mental sharpness, trouble organizing tasks or getting things done
- Headaches, light/sound/touch sensitivity
- Neuropathy, numbness, tingling, loss of coordination, paralysis, seizures
- Fainting, dizziness or lightheadedness, vertigo
- Insomnia, poor sleep, sleep apnea
- Anxiety, depression, irritability, emotional outbursts, mood swings, suicide
- Fatigue, problems recovering from exercise or even daily activities
- Muscle weakness, cramping and aching
- Low blood pressure, elevated blood pressure, palpitations, fast heart rate
- Frequent respiratory infections
- Wheezing, allergy symptoms, shortness of breath, air hunger Joint aches and stiffness
- Swelling of lips and face, nosebleeds
- Diarrhea or constipation
- Nausea and vomiting, stomach upset
- Frequent urination and increased thirst
- Rashes, itching, prickling skin, blotching and redness
- Heavy periods, irregular periods,
- PMS symptoms, difficult menopause, miscarriages
- Significant weight gain or weight loss
- Young children are likely to develop fatigue, headaches, and abdominal complaints
Why do some people become ill following chronic exposure to toxic mold or chemicals while others have no symptoms at all? There are many reasons but one contributing factor is a person’s genetic makeup. Carriers of the HLA-DR gene, for example, seem to not be able to make the antibodies needed to clear mycotoxins. At least 24% percent of the population has a genetically induced predisposition to become ill upon exposure to toxins from mold.
Those who have experienced ill health due to toxic mold and other environmental pathogens suffer from a condition that few people understand. Many sufferers feel isolated and alone and their relationships with others can become strained. Frustrated and confused, their symptoms are often misdiagnosed as stemming from Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue, Adrenal Fatigue, or general Idiopathic malaise.
If you have noticed that EMF exposures trigger or exacerbate your symptoms, we understand the exhaustion of what you are experiencing and are here to help!
Expert EMF Relief Assessment With You In Mind
Perhaps you have a home where mold remediation was completed and now you want to work on reducing your EMF exposures. Or, maybe you moved out of a sick building and need help with a real estate EMF inspection as you house hunt.
Our assessment looks at several different types of EMFs emanating from inside and outside your dwelling. Special emphasis is placed on creating the healthiest environment possible for where you spend most of your time.
The consultation is based on the general principles of Building Biology EMF Safety and pertains to non-ionizing EMF radiation exposures. A range of fields are surveyd including AC Electric and Magnetic fields, Power Quality, Micro-surge “Dirty Electricity” and Current Harmonics, RF Microwave Fields and Light Quality/Flicker.
Building Biology Institute approved protocols and safety exposure guidelines are followed. Other safety limits established by objective, scientific researchers and working groups are also taken into consideration for your safe living and tech wellness.
Our state-of-the-art equipment includes spectrum analyzers, radio frequency meters (including new 5G high millimeter wavelengths), 3-axis gauss meters, clamp meters, electric voltage meters, and equipment to measure stray current and electrical harmonic distortion. A typical consultation takes between 2 to 5 hours and may require a follow-up visit.
