BLACK MOLD REMEDIES TO DETOX
There are a number of black-mold-remedies for removing the mold toxins from the body. All the black mold remedies act by pulling toxins from the intestinal tract and eliminating the mold toxins through the stool. It is a slow process that can take months to work. But it is very effective!
Black mold toxins migrate through the body and one place they migrate to is the intestinal tract. If nothing binds to them, they may get reabsorbed back into the body. If a substance that binds to the toxin, such as one of the black-mold-remedies, is taken on a regular basis, then the cycle is in effect broken because the toxins stop there in the gut and get elliminated. It is a slow process but very effective.
One of the black mold remedies is a safe prescription drug called cholestyramine that can be written by your doctor and possibly covered by your insurance. How it works and how it is prescribed is discussed both in my book,
and on this website below. I recommend this information be brought to your physician so he/she can write this prescription for you to take as an initial treatment for toxic mold syndrome.
Cholestyramine is a prescription medication that has been found clinically to be effective in relieving the symptoms of toxic mold syndrome. It works by binding to the mold toxins in the gut and removing them from the body.
Cholestyramine is an old cholesterol medication that has been around for a long time. It's use in cholesterol lowering has fallen due to new cholesterol lowering medications. It has few side effects because it is not absorbed into the blood stream. The most common side effect is constipation; the next most common is heart burn.
It works by binding mold toxins in the intestines that have been released from the gallbladder. Mold toxins go through the liver to the gallbladder where they stay until a fatty meal causes the gallbladder to release bile and also mold toxins into the gut. Without cholestyramine or other agents that bind toxins like brown seaweed, the mold toxins can recirculate back into the blood stream.
The dose of cholestyramine is one packet mixed in water four times daily between meals. I advise taking cholestyramine shortly after taking fish oil, olive oil, flax seed oil or any oil to stimulate release of mold toxins from the gallbladder so there can be optimum mold toxin binding and removal from the body. Do not take with meals because then the cholestyramine will bind to cholesterol leaving less able to bind to the mold toxins.
For the constipation you can take 500 mg of magnesium tablets daily to make your stool looser. For the heart burn you can ask your doc for prilosec or nexium while you are on it.
I think it should be taken for one to two months following acute exposure to toxic mold. Taking this medication longer than that tends to be hard on the intestines and interferes with absorption of fat soluble vitamins like A, D and E. Following 1 to 2 months on cholestyramine, if symptoms are still present, continuation of mold toxin removal with brown seaweed is advised.
BLACK-MOLD-DETOX SUPPLEMENTS: THE BROWN SEAWEEDS LIMU MOUI AND MODIFILAN
I think one of the best black-mold-remedies (mold removal substances) is brown seaweed. Seaweed has been used for centuries for toxin removal from the body. The alginates in seaweeds have been known for many years to be toxin binding substances.
Brown seaweed is a black-mold-remedy that worked for me. At 6 to 8 months following my leaving the mold contaminated building, a lot of my symptoms were already gone. But a few still lingered on. I still had some lingering anxiety and a shaky feeling. After 2 weeks of taking the brown seaweed extract, the shaky feeling was completely gone and the anxiety was gone as well. So I was sold. I still continue to take brown seaweed every day because I feel healthy on it and I believe it is still working to detoxify my body of the mold toxins as well as other toxins encountered daily.
Also, brown seaweed is effective in many of my mod toxic patients. Many report feeling better with it, although if they are really loaded with mold toxins, they initially feel worse on the limu which is expected. Why is it expected? Well, all the mold toxin removal substances cause a worsening of symptoms because as you pull out the toxins, you are mobilizing toxins out of deeper tissues into the bloodstream. In some cases I have noticed that symptoms seems to get much better once you have been on it for a few weeks. But for others recovery may take months to years.
What is this brown seaweed supplement? The one I use is called LIMU MOUI. The word Limu Moui basically means brown seaweed in the language of the people on the island of Tonga. It is a seaweed that grows deep in the pristine Pacific ocean waters off the island of Tonga. For centuries the native people of Tonga have eaten this brown seaweed and attribute their unusual longevity, excellent health, strength and stature to regular consumpton of this brown seaweed.
There is another brown seaweed product that I include on my black-mold-remedies list and that I use and I have found to be very helpful for both my patients as well as myself. It is a little less expensive than limu moui and it is in capsule form. It is called:
The two main components of brown seaweed are fucoidan and alginate. Fuicoidan has been studied extensively.Fuicoidan is one of the components in seaweed that puts modifilan and limu moui on the black-mold-remedies list because the fuicoidan is a natural anti-inflammatory that helps to combat the inflammation that occurs with toxic mold syndrome. There are over 650 research studies on fucoidan in the scientific literature which can be accessed by searching Pubmed.org. Fucoidan is a carbohydrate called a complex polysaccharide. It is composed mostly of fucopyranoside and natural sulfate. It also has trace elements of galactose, xylose and glucoronic acid.
Fucoidan has been shown to help with;
improving immune system function
relieving stomach problems
improving liver function
inhibiting blood clotting
reduction of free radicals
reducing cholesterol levels
improvement of skin health
lowering high blood pressure
lowering blood sugar levels in diabetics
fighting inflammation in the body
removal of toxins from the body
Alginate is another very important component of Limu moui. Alginate, along with fucoidan too, naturally absorbs heavy metals, radioactive heavy metals, toxins and free radicals. Once bound to alginate and fucoidan these toxins do not get reabsorbed back into the body, but get excreted out into the stool. It is a perfect way to elliminate toxins from the body because it just removes them instead of having to rely on the detoxification abilities of one's body. As a holistic physician I am well aware of the fact that some people have better detoxification function than others. So a product such as this that pulls toxins out of the body is very important for maintaining health. The alginate present in brown seaweed and its ability to bind toxins is the reason why modifilan and Limu Moui top my list for some of the best black-mold-remedies.
I know there are alot of healthful nutritious properties to limu moui but I still hold to my belief that its main benefits are that of toxin removal. I believe that so much of illnesses today are due to a build up of toxins in the body. Some of these toxins, the body just does not know what to do with because the toxin is a man made chemical that the body has never seen before. (ie: plastics from water bottles or heated plastic in the microwave)
Other biotoxins like mycotoxins may not be elliminated by some people due to a glich in their detoxification system. This is discussed in detail in my book "Surviving Toxic Black Mold Syndrome" . Briefly, studies have shown that one quarter of our population experience toxic black mold symptoms upon exposure, while the other three quarters do not.
Studies have documented the toxin binding ability of alginates in seaweeds. They have shown that alginates bind to endotoxins, a class of natural organic toxins to which mycotoxins belong.
These studies have been done involving purification of alginates to be used in human tissue transplantation. The alginate naturally binds to endotoxins and other toxins in the environment and has to be removed by a special purification process. They have to purify the alginate so it can be used in the tranaplantation of cells.
So, brown seaweed (ie Limu Moui).... binds mycotoxins by binding to the alginate in the seaweed and since alginate is never absorbed into the body it pulls the toxins out of the body via the stool.
In fact, one reason why Limu Moui is harvested in the deep South Pacific ocean waters off the coast of the island of Tonga is because the water there is very clean and there is the least amount of environmental toxins bound to the limu moui that they harvest there.
Some people have asked if environmental toxins like heavy metals can be present in seaweed. Studies show that seaweed may contain minute amounts of environmental toxins. But consider the fact that seaweed is very low on the food chain in the ocean and that fish and seafood are higher up on the food chain and thus concentrate a lot more toxins from the environment. Also, consider the fact that studies have proven that the alginates in seaweed are strong chelators of heavy metals and actually bind tightly and pull heavy metals out of the body. If alginates bind so tightly to heavy metals in the gut why is there any reason to believe that suddenly alginate would release a heavy metal already bound to it.
Seaweeds have been used therapeutically for centuries to help with many ailments . Their effects have been beneficial and healing rather than harmful, so it makes more sense that any minute amount of toxin in the seaweed is not bioavailable (that is bound so tightly to the unabsorbed alginate that it could not be absorbed into the body).
The testimonials on this product are amazing. To me, I think they have to be due to removal of toxins because they are more dramatic than any other nutritional I have ever seen. Although they do not demonstrate that this product is a black mold remedy, here are a few testimonials that I know personally and think are pretty amazing.
A patient of mine introduced me to Limu Moui in February of 2006. She had such an amazing recovery from chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia that she attributed to limu moui, that I had to check it out. After 2 months of taking Limu Moui, her fatigue and fibromyalgia had disappeared. She had bloodwork done by me both before she started taking Limu and 2 months after, which were amazing in and of themselves. Before taking Limu her female hormones and DHEA were low for a woman in her mid forties. Also her antibodies against her thyroid were very high meaning her Hashimotos Thyroiditis was very active. After 2 months on the Limu, her female hormones and DHEA were elevated to that of a healthy woman. DHEA, which I consider to be a marker for general overall health had shot up to a healthy level at the upper limit of normal! That really impressed me. Also her thyroid antibodies dropped much lower, suggesting her Hashimotos Thyoiditis was not as active. Now over one year later, she still takes Limu, still has tons of energy, and has no fibromyalgia pain. She says the amount of time she spent sleeping when she was sick is now the amount of time she spends awake. We do not know what caused her fatigue and fibromyalgia. Could it have been an unknown exposure to mycotoxins in her environment? I think it's possible. Or perhaps she had a build up of another toxin that her body could not elliminate without help. She continues to take the limu and continues to feel great. There are clues that suggest to me that the greatest action of the limu in this patient was toxin removal. One is that she says she can now stop the limu and still feel good. The other is that she describes a slow gradual improvement over months and continual improvement the longer she continues on it. That spells out detox to me!
My mother-in-law started taking it for just general health improvement. She said she felt great before she started it. Then one week after starting the Limu, she said the tinnitis (ringing in her ears) went away. Then 2 weeks later she said her neck didn't hurt as much. Its amazing how you don't realize what symptoms you are having untill they are gone.
It is never too soon to start removing mold toxins from your body. The time to act is NOW.
Do not wait until the toxin overload in your system triggers a cancer to form! Studies show that many of the mycotoxins are carcinogenic. That was my biggest fear when I was mold toxic....that I would develop cancer if I did not get these toxins out as soon as I possibly could.
I did not try Limu moui until a year and a half after I began work in the black mold contaminated building. I actually knew about this product but I did not know it was helpful in removing black mold toxins from the body.
You can benefit from my experience. I wish I had come across a website such as this one when I was sick...it would have been so helpful. I remember searching the internet for black mold remedies but found only one prescription medication. I wanted a black mold remedy that was more natural but had not found one while I was really sick. It was hard to do a lot of searching when I was feeling horrible.
This is why I decided to create this website, so you will not have to go through the trial and error like I did. I will work to try to provide as much information on this website as I possibly can. I am constantly researching to know more about toxic black mold and different black mold remedies to help those struck with this horrrible syndrome. If I can help people struck with this syndrome live more normal healthy lives, then this website will be worth it.
If I can help people with this syndrome, remove mold toxins from their bodies as quickly as possible, then I can say that I took something bad that happened to me and did some good in exchange. I do not want to sit around feeling sorry for myself that this tragedy had to happen to me. I did do some of that for a while, but not for too long.
You are probably thinking that if this black mold remedy is so good for you and it has brown seaweed in it, that it must taste awful. Well, if my mother, who I consider to be the ultimate taste tester, says it tastes pretty good, then anyone will. I have tried to get my mom to try a lot of things over the years, seaweed was one, but most things failed the taste test. Limu passed.
So, yes, Limu Moui tastes good! It's fruity and refreshing. It has organic mango and papaya puree in it and takes on the flavor of those two fruits and hides the flavor of the brown seaweed extract. And it comes in glass bottles so there is no plastic taste or harmful plastics leaching into the juice! It tastes better refrigerated, so remenber to refigerate it before you open it. It lasts for 6 to 8 months on the shelf ( there is an expiartion date on the bottom of the bottle). An opened bottle in the refigerator lasts for about one to two months. I like it best in a tall glass with lots of ice cubes.
And it's not another pill that you have to swallow. For me that helped alot because I hate swallowing pills. I find it's easier to complient when all I have to do is drink 4 oz of a good tasting juice in the am.
If you are sick and tired of being sick and would like to try this black-mold-remedy to start removing mold toxins as well as other toxins from your body as I did then go to my limu website listed below.
Limu Moui retails for 49.00 per bottle. But if you sign up under my site for a wholesale distributor membership for a one time only fee of 25.00, you can get each bottle for a total of 30.00 per bottle (that is including shipping and handling) In order to get that discount though you need to order 4 bottles at a time which is a case or 2 bottles at a time which is 60.00 A case of 4 costs 120.00 dollars plus 14.95 for shipping and a 2 pack is 60.00 plus 14.95 for shipping. The bottles are glass so that is why the delivery charge is higher. One case (4 bottles) is one months supply if you take the average dose of 4 oz daily. Each glass bottle of Limu is 33 fl oz. and lasts about a week on the average dose of 4 oz daily. Your case will be automatically shipped once a month. It is good to make at least a 3 month commitment to trying Limu Moui because it sometimes takes a while before you notice a difference in how you feel. The more toxic you are the longer it will take. I believe this is because toxin removal is a slow process that takes time.
You can cancel the autoship at any time if you are not satisfied with the product. I have been a limu dealer for 4 years and I have never seen a customer have trouble canceling their autoship. You will probably like Limu so much that you will not need to cancel your autoship, but it helps to know that you can if you wish.
Sometimes its hard to order a case of something before you even know what it tastes like. I would suggest first ordering one bottle at the retail price to try it out.
Always check with your doctor before starting on any new supplement, although Limu is not really a supplement, but is, in fact, a food. Anyway, it is good to tell your doctor what you are doing so he/she will know what to attribute to your new health and vitality amongst other things like improved cholesterol and blood sugar.
Don't wait to start feeling better! Don't wait until its too late to start detoxifying your body. Remember black mold remedies take time to work so the sooner you start the sooner you can start feeling healthy again!!
Take charge of your health NOW and remove mold toxins and other toxins from your body with Limu Moui and feel better! Life is too short to feel bad all the time!
Another of the Black Mold Remedies is a natural substance called zeolite.
Zeolite is a natural crystal that forms when volcanic lava mixes with sea water. The chemical name of zeolite is clinoptilolite. It has been used for thousands of years in Asia to improve health.
The crystalline structure of zeolite forms a cage-like structure that traps heavy metals and other toxins. Then it is elliminated from the body.
IT IS SAFE!
It has been studied in animals and has been shown to be safe even at high doses.
Pavelic, K., et al, “Natural zeolite clinoptilolite: new adjuvant in anticancer therapy” J. Mol. Med. 2001 78(12) 708-720.
Zeolite was approved by the Cuban Drug Administration for use as an anti-diarrheal drug called Enterex.
Rodriguez-Fuentes, G., et al “Enterex: Anti-Diarrheic Drug based on Purified Natural Clinoptilolite” Zeolites 19 441-448, 1997.
It is on the FDA Gras (Generally Recognized as Safe) list.
IT'S AN EFFECTIVE BLACK MOLD REMEDY
One study showed a reduction in the mycotoxin called aflatoxin in the milk of cows that were fed zeolite proving that zeolite removes mold toxins.
Kralj, M. and Pavelic, K. “Medicine on a Small Scale” EMBO Rep 2003 Nov 4(11); 1008-1012.
Zeolite has been used extensively in farm animals to increase longevity and health. Other countries use it to reduce mycotoxins in the animals.

Black Mold Remedy- Zeolite's Side effects:
The two side effects I have read about zeolite are possible loss of potassium and dehydration. Dehydration is easily prevented by simply drinking a lot of water throughout the course of aa day while taking zeolite. Potassium loss is also easily prevented by taking a supplement with potassium or electrolytes or just eating a lot of fresh raw fruit throughout the course of a day that you are taking the zeolite. Do not take a potassium supplement or an electrolye solution at the same time as you are taking the zeolite because the potassium and other minerals will be bound by the zeolite. This ties the zeolite up so it can not bind as readily to other toxins or heavy metals. The same goes for any mineral or your multivutamin-mineral supplement. I would not take any supplement with a mineral until at least 4 to 6 hours after taking the zeolite, just to be sure. It's just more effective if you follow these instructions.
I am unsure of the scientific claims of these liquid zeolite preparations but I have had people report positive effects from taking them. However people have also reported positive effects from taking the powders also.
FAR INFRARED SAUNA THERAPY
Far infrared sauna therapy is a very effective way to remove toxins including mold toxins from the body.
Traditional steam saunas are also effective though not as comfortable due to the hot steam that many people find uncomfortable. Far infrared saunas use far infrared heaters to warm the skin and not the air. They are used to warm babies in hospital nurseries. Not only are they more effective at detoxifying because the heat goes deeper into the skin but they are also much more comfortable because they do not heat the air.
Saunas are to be used with caution and their use should be discussed with your doctor first.
If your doctor gives approval for sauna use then you still should proceed slowly and carefully, because, as saunas remove toxins, you can have a return or worsening of your symptoms.
There are certain supplements that are ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL to take when you are using far infrared sauna therapy. These supplements help detox the toxins that can be released into the bloodstream during a far infrared sauna. Also there are certain high dose antioxidant nutrients that are necessary to protect your body from the harmful effects of mold toxins. These nutrients are outlined and explained in my book:
Be aware that if you are on medications that should stay at a constant level such as insulin or seizure medications, these medicine levels can drop due to the increased detoxifying process that is going on. This could cause problems. Because a sauna will cause a release of toxins from the fat cells into the bloodstream, a person with mold toxicity should proceed very slowly to avoid the uncomfortable symptoms caused by mold toxins. Basically if you go too fast you might relive the mold toxicity experience. I discovered this in myself when exercising, within 20 minutes of breaking a sweat, I would experience a panic attack and the horrible sensation that I was going to pass out. It made working out impossible for me until my body became less toxic.
After doing extensive research to find the BEST FAR INFRARED SAUNA, I have found it. The best far infrared saunas are made by HEAVENLY HEAT SAUNAS.
