Adrenal support is very important in the treatment of toxic mold exposure. Toxic mold triggers an inflammatory response in your body. Your adrenals produce cortisol to decrease this inflammation. Many times people are able to withstand toxic mold if their adrenals are strong and healthy and are able to pump out large amounts of cortisol to combat the inflammation. During this time period, people with healthy strong adrenal glands will have few symptoms. But if the exposure is large enough or lasts a long time, eventually this wears out even the healthiest adrenal gland and the person exposed to toxic mold will start having symptoms of inflammation.
Pregnenolone is a precursor hormone for many hormones in the body including cortisol. When pregnenolone is ingested, your body produces the hormones that it needs from it.
Before the drug companies developed prednisone for use in inflammation, pregnenolone used to be used in the treatment of arthritis. It was effective but much gentler than today"s very strong prednisone.
Many people exposed to toxic mold have found pregnenolone to be very helpful in recovery and feeling more comfortable during the recovery process.
Make sure you check with your doctor first before starting any hormonal product.
Pregnenolone, 3-alpha-hydroxy-5-beta-pregnen-20-one, is a natural steroid hormone produced in the body from cholesterol. It has been described as the “Grandmother of all Steroid Hormones,” since all steroid hormones, over 150 of them, are derived from pregnenolone. Pregnenolone has been linked with positive support of the immune system, mood and memory. In the body, it takes one or two metabolic pathways, converting to DHEA and/or progesterone. It is likely that the body will convert pregnenolone appropriately, according to its needs. Studies show that the body makes 60% less of this hormone at age 75 than it does at age 35.
Pregnenolone, a natural precursor to over 150 steroid hormones, helps support the immune system, mood and memory.
