Toxic Mold Can Make You Sick

I didn’t know… toxic mold could make us sick.

Until 2010 – when my son got suddenly sick. Everyone in our family had different health problems. Tempers, sleeping more, asthma, sniffles, nausea, vomiting, getting sick multiple times a year, headaches, bloody noses and forgetfulness, to name a few.

When my son got sick it was different. He was sick for 9 months — without any good days.

He was dangerously sick and there were days all I could do was pray and reassure my son that it would get better.

I was researching what could be making him so sick. He had a positive Lyme disease diagnosis – but why was he not getting better with treatment. We had an LLMD who was prescribing multiple – combo antibiotics and even put him on IV antibiotics when he wasn’t responding to the orals. That’s when his white blood cell count dropped to an all time low – 2.7 – and I asked what happened when he gets to zero.

No More Antibiotics!

I felt it was the medicine making him worse. So, we stopped all medication and started supplementing vitamins according to the HPU protocol – If Someone is NOT getting WELL with Lyme Treatment

We eventually discovered – after ruling out everything else – there was toxic mold hidden behind the walls and worse – it was in our air! Mold was in the air and that mold was “toxic mold”  – a mold that releases mycotoxins – and that is why we were getting some nasty symptoms.

We were breathing massive amounts of mycotoxins.

According to the U.S. Dept. of Defense, “During the 1970s and 1980s, the trichothecene mycotoxins gained some notoriety as putative biological warfare agents when they were implicated in yellow rain attacks in Southeast Asia.” Read the Entire chapter on Trichothecene Mycotoxins from Medical Aspects of Chemical and Biological Warfare

We did air testing and dust testing.  Both can be helpful in diagnosing a toxic mold problem.

We had Stachybotrys (stachy for short) come back very high on air testing and moderately high on the dust testing. Stachy releases trichothecene mycotoxins – which explains how sick we were.

We had over 80% of the symptoms listed in the Stages of Mycotoxicosis.  We had almost all the symptoms in Stages 1 and 2 – and Stage 3 was a look into Scrooge – if something did not change – we would see Tiny Tim’s crutch by the hearth.

I didn’t know… toxic mold could make us sick.

What I didn’t know did hurt us.

That’s why you should test – especially if someone is sick.

A HERTSMI TEST is $150 plus shipping – you do it yourself and plug the results into a scorecard. It couldn’t be easier. If you want to test for more molds you can get the full ERMI or add a couple of molds.  For a fee, you can add the quantitative PCR detection of Streptomyces spp., which resembles mold but is a Gram-positive bacteria that is often found in people.

Full instructions on how to do A HERTSMI TEST and read the results

Another test that can be done by anyone is the HOME AIR CHECK There are tests for tobacco smoke, formaldehyde, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), mold and a test for all of these – it’s an air test and they send you the machine to use and the tests. I used to recommend this as a service – but the cost of 2 air tests for mold, formaldehyde and VOC’s has risen to $430 – that’s a lot!  It used to be about $300 for 2 – if I remember correctly.  Too bad.

I have a Zefon air testing machine that I bought on ebay when I found a good deal. I got mine for a few hundred dollars a little over 3 years ago.  I saw one for $500 today with a quick glance.

I paid a few hundred dollars instead of a couple thousand for the full kit with the calibration tool. It works great. The Air-o-cel cartridges are less than $50 which includes the lab looking at them. There are several labs that you can have analyze them. I use Quantem Labs.

There are monitors you can get for your home or office too – I like the Foobot – there are others too – there was a recent article in Healthy Indoors Magazine on indoor air quality monitors that swayed me to the Foobot – check it out – this should link you to the online magazine… page 23

Now that I know that toxic mold can make us sick I monitor and clean my air.  I watch for leaks and I run Hi Tech Air Solutions in my home and any building I spend time in – it’s the only thing I have found to truly clean the air.

Stages of Mycotoxicosis: For Inhalation of Mycotoxin

Stage 1

  • burning sensation in the mouth, tongue, throat, palate, esophagus, and stomach
  • burning within the eyes, ears and nose
  • tongue feels swollen and stiff
  • Gingivitis
  • vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain
  • Excessive salivation
  • headache
  • dizziness
  • weakness
  • fatigue
  • tachycardia
  • fever and sweating
  • congestion

Stage 2

  • headaches
  • mental depression
  • loss of short-term memory
  • loss of problem-solving ability
  • various neuropsychiatric manifestations
  • meningism – the triad of nuchal rigidity (neck stiffness), photophobia (intolerance of bright light) and headache.
  • severe malaise and fatigue
  • narcolepsy
  • loss of temperature control
  • hyperesthesia or numbness of body areas
  • cerebellar dysfunction including hypotonia, attitude and gait, dysmetria, asthenia, vertigo, disturbances of speech, and loss of balance
  • ADHD
  • visual disturbances, floating objects, light sensitive, lack of tears, burning and itching
  • Ears: burning, itching, and loss of hearing
  • Immune and hematopoietic: progressive loss of white and red cells including a decrease of platelets and hemoglobin, and high susceptibility to bacterial, mycotic and viral infections, debilitating chemical and allergies
  • Gastrointestinal: metallic taste in mouth, tooth loss, gum problems, stomatitis, sores in gums and throat, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or constipation, excessive flatulence, abdominal distention, hepatitis, pancreatitis, and diabetes mellitus
  • Respiratory : burning and bleeding from nasal membranes, respiratory difficulty, asthma, extreme susceptibility to cold, flu and pneumonia
  • Skin: thinning of hair on head, burning on face, rashes, irritation, and edema
  • Renal: proteinuria, possible hematuria
  • Reproductive: irregular ovarian cycles, increased menstrual flow, fibroid growths in uterus, cystic development inmammary glands, and tumors of mammary and prostate glands
  • Musculoskeletal : somatitis, muscle weakness, spasms, cramps, joint pain, enlargement of joints in hand, and clubbing of fingers.
  • Cardiovascular: chest pain, palpitations, ruptures of atrial walls, myocardial infection and aneurysm of arteries
  • The skin and mucous membranes may be icteric, pupils dilated, the pulse soft and labile, and blood pressure may decrease or increase
  • Visible bruises may appear on the skin
  • Thoughts of suicide may be prominent
  • Degeneration and hemorrhages of the vessels marks the transition from the second to the third Stage of the disease and may not be consistently observed.
  • The degeneration of the vital organs including serious respiratory insufficiency or asthma and CNS degeneration will take the patient into Stage three along with development of necrotic angina.

Stage 3

  • The transition from the second to the third Stage is sudden.
  • resistance is already low, and violent severe symptoms are present, especially under the influence of stress, or associated with physical exertion and fatigue
  • lung, brain or heart failure (heart attack), with or without the appearance of petechial hemorrhage on the skin of the trunk, the axillary and inguinal areas, the lateral surfaces of the arms and thighs, the face and head, and in serious Cases, the chest
  • Aneurysms of the brain or aorta may be observed by angiography
  • Hemorrhages may also be found on the mucous membranes of the mouth and tongue, and on the soft palate and tonsils
  • severe interstitial thickening or scarring of the lungs, or respiratory failure
  • Nasal, gastric and intestinal hemorrhages and hemorrhagic diathesis may occur.
  • Severe degeneration of the skin on the face, eyelids, and loss of lashes is also often present
  • difficulty and pain on swallowing
  • Necrotic lesions may extend to the uvula, gums, buccal mucosa, larynx, vocal cords, lungs, stomach, and intestines and other internal organs such as the liver and kidneys and are usually contaminated with a variety of avirulent bacteria
  • Bacteria infection causes an unpleasant odor from the mouth due to the enzymatic activity of bacteria on proteins
  • Regional lymph nodes are frequently enlarged
  • Esophageal lesions may occur and involvement of the epiglottis may cause laryngeal edema andaphonia (loss of voice). Death may occur by strangulation
  • Bronchopneumonia, pulmonary hemorrhages, and lung abscesses are frequent complications
  • Tumors may develop of various organs, including skin, urinary bladder, brain, mammary gland, bone, immune, liver, prostate, possibly resulting in death.
  • The most commoncause of death is brain failure due to both direct effects of the mycotoxin on the central nervous system and indirect effects due to respiratory failure or lack of oxygen to the brain caused by the severe caustic inflammation (fibrinous exudation) reaction with the lung tissue, rendering it non-functional.
  • The course and duration of this Stage 3 depends on the intensity of the poisoning and complete removal of the patient from the premises or source of mycotoxin. Therefore, the duration of the recovery period is variable. There is considerable cellular necrosis and scarring to all major organs of the body in which cells will not regenerate, including the brain, spinal cord, eyes, lung, heart, liver, pancreas, kidney, adrenal, and blood vessels. If the disease is diagnosed during the first Stage, hospitalization is usually unnecessary, but allergies and asthma should be monitored closely. If the disease is diagnosed during the second Stage and even at the transition from the second to third Stages, early hospitalization may preserve the patient’s life. If however, the disease is only detected during the third Stage, death cannot be prevented in most Cases.

Lyme Disease, Brain Disease and Infections

Dr. Jay Davidson interviews Dr. Kenneth Stoller 

I took notes while I watched the video and supported with some links and graphics…

Medical Doctors (MD’s) for the most part are still treating with Rockefeller medicine – Rockefellers took over the medical schools and created institutionalized medicine.  This form of medicine was set up to sell patented medicine for profit.

incurable me

Incurable Me by Dr. Kenneth Stoller

Integrative, functional approach is still rare in MD’s – although Dr. Stoller has been practicing alternative medicine for 34 years – he talks about the new paradigm in medicine – treating the cause
– and the old paradigm eventually falling away.

We can all hope!  

Symptom care is sick care.
We need health care & whole person care.

Better care (now) is an out of pocket expense and if you don’t have money to pay for it you are in a bad situation.

In the book Incurable Me, Dr. Stoller goes into the stealth epidemic of Lyme Disease.  Lyme can mask as Alzheimer’s Disease and many other diseases.  Kris Kristofferson is just one case of Alzheimer’s that got better when Lyme was diagnosed and treated.

Dr. Alan MacDonald, who was one of the featured doctors in the movie, Under Our Skin found spirochetes in 100% of the brains of Alzheimer’s infected people – after they died.

Spirochetes in the brain, spinning, spinning.

Imagine a million tiny drills in the brain.

 Once the brain turns to jello – it’s pretty hard to walk back a 40 year old infection.

CDC announced they were wrong, it’s not 30,000 new people per year getting Lyme Disease, it’s 330,000 new people per year getting Lyme — that adds up.  This is a national emergency and there is very little money spent on Lyme Disease testing

cases vs funding

Bee colonies and people are dying because of Glycosphate.

We have been lied to – DDT was banned in the U.S. in 1972 and was replaced with another – very similar insecticide just as bad – DDT with a hydroxyl group attached to it- Dicofol.  We are being poisoned and lied to. Chapter 2, Incurable Me


World Health Organization (WHO) authorized the use of DDT to control Malaria!  This idea is very expensive and dangerous – DDT is a persistent pollutant – it does not go away!  This spraying of DDT is causing paralysis and entrovirus – in India 2011 – they said they eradicated polio – but the number of cases of non-polio acute paralysis went through the roof.  They are using high amounts of DDT in India.  Entrovirus is a benign family of viruses unless they find a body full of the pesticides. Then, the virus can cause paralysis.

Girls going into puberty – men having low Testosterone – this is because chemicals are not being regulated – we are all being poisoned and the government agencies are letting it happen.

monsantoThe organization that controls the seed cannot control the chemicals too.

Monsanto is the largest producer of GMO seeds on the planet. They are the world’s leading producer of Roundup- an herbicide with the active ingredient glyphosate. Roundup KILLS EVERYTHING except the growing Roundup ready GMO crop.

The government has been bought and sold.

The CDC was founded to get rid of Malaria – they haven’t done that yet!

Vaccines don’t work that well for a lot of illnesses.  (I agree)

You can’t get rid of Lyme without an antibiotic (I disagree)

We used herbs and natural treatment and we are well. I know plenty of others who have gotten well from Lyme Disease and other chronic, debilitating illnesses without antibiotics. In our case – antibiotics only made us worse.   ~Heather Plude, 

Breast cancer and other diseases are caused by pollution and our toxic environment.

Home unit hyperbaric chambers are 1.3 atmosphere – compared to 2.8 in the industrial hyperbaric oxygen chambers.  Improves immune system. In England, Hyperbaric Oxygen chambers are the #1 treatment for MS patients. [17:40]  They don’t know what they are treating – could be Lyme or a Retrovirus – they don’t cure MS – but they make those patients feel better.

Lyme mimics everything!


Heavy metal poisoning

Fungal infections

Lyme Disease (LD) leaves persister cells – Lyme vaccine woke up dormant Lyme Disease.

The vaccine could be used to see if LD treatment was successful.  When done with LD treatment – you could inject them with the vaccine and see if they get sick – The vaccine would wake up the persister cells and see if the person is actually Lyme Disease free. If they get sick again – pulse another antibiotic to kill the cells you just woke up.

Alinia is great at ripping apart the biofilm of Lyme – 30% of chronic Lyme sufferers – can get well with Alinia.

I wish there was a way of testing.  Lyme testing is looking for antibodies.  Lyme suppresses the immune system. The sickest people have no antibodies because their immune system is not producing antibodies – that is why they are so sick.

Relapsing fever will not test positive for Lyme because Lyme is checking for Bergdorferi.

PCR Lyme test has 70% false negative – if you have 10 people with Lyme – only 3 will test positive.  You could test those same 3 people again and they would test negative because there is a 70% false negative.

Lyme is an STD and it can be passed congenitally.  Lyme is passed from mom to baby.

Doctors are brainwashed that Lyme is rare, easy to detect and easy to cure.

In reality: Lyme is everywhere, it is hard to detect and difficult to cure.

25 years ago in Australia – they tested ticks and 40% had Borrelia – Australia still saying that Lyme does not exist.

Map of states with the most schizophrenia and a map of the states with the most Lyme and they are the same map. Could be other infections too.  Not always Lyme.

Just because testing may come back negative, does not mean the person is not sick.  Turn over more rocks.  Look for a cause.

The global negation of an illness. Beyond Neurenburg Trial offense.

Spraying poisons – pesticides – and not acknowledging they are poisoning us.

Zika – microcephilis – Northern part of Brazil – injecting pregnant woman n- and larvacide in the water – and they are saying there are 1,000 new cases a week of Zika – wealth transfer.  Send the money for the vaccines and CDC for drugs.

Meanwhile, there is a real pandemic – Lyme Disease, Brain Disease and Infections

People are walking a razor’s edge with their immune systems – some trauma comes – and they are sick – really sick.

Bullseye rash is caused by IGG antibodies – IGG is chronic antibodies – people who get the bullseye are already infected.  (theory)

Perils and Problems with Dirty Electricity Filters: What to be Aware of!

Since I have learned about how dangerous Electrosmog can be, I have been looking for the best way to test and protect ourselves and our family from the damaging effects of electrosmog.  EMF, ELF, VLF, whatever you call it, it messes with the brain, the hormones and the health of humans, pets and plants.

ALL LIVING THINGS are threatened by high levels of electrosmog.  Not only that but EMF exposed toxic mold can give off 600 times as many mycotoxins – making toxic mold more dangerous.

The Stetzer and GreenWave filters are talked about in places where people know about dirty electricity – but I wonder how much they know about these filters – like they can actually add to magnetic fields if the wiring in the house is not done correctly.

I found this video – where Michael Neuert is testing a couple of these Dirty Electricity filters using the Trifield meter AND other meters. The entire video is below – a couple of my notes from watching it.   At 15:56 – he shows how sensitive the meters are to the body. He says – “you actually have to be careful about how you hold the meters how you influence the test.”  How do you test a house, then?  Do you shield yourself from the meter with silver glove?

I’ve always wondered why different people have the same TriField meter I have and we all have different results from testing a common electrical appliance.  I am beginning to get an understanding.  Each house is unique, each person is unique and results may varywidely!  It doesn’t make either test wrong — it is all data we can use to improve our living situations.

Not only that – but the TriField meter is not enough.

This is on the EMF Center’s website (which is Michael Neubert’s company)

What to be aware of:  We have found that the lower priced meters – especially the cheaper models that test several kinds of EMFs at once like the TriField and the Cornet meters – are almost more trouble than they are worth, because you cannot trust the measurements and there are recurring quality/variation problems.  Thus we do not carry or recommend them.

What Meters Does EMF Center Recommend?

Here is the video that shows details of the testing of these dirty electricity filters–

What meters does EMF Center recommend

The alpha gaussAlpha UHS gaussmeter, used to measure the ELF magnetic fields from power lines, electric panels, electrical wiring, and appliances, and the VLF magnetic fields from fluorescent lights, LEDs, electronics and computers, sells for $299 on EMF Center and Less EMF.

I did not find better prices on this gaussmeter anywhere else on the Internet. Even directly from AlphaLab, this meter is $310 – so this is a very good deal from EMF Center. There are some options for data collection on USB and recallibration services at the AlphaLab website if you are interested.

ELF = Extremely Low Frequency

VLF = Very Low Frequency

With this meter you can separate the ELF from the VLF. (watch the video below @16:45)

In most cases – there will be very little VLF – because you would have to be very close to a computer or another electrical appliance.

3- axis meter that can switch to 1 axis to find directional electrical frequencies. Most of the time, you are going to measure on the 3-axis setting.  1 axis is only for narrowing down sources – advanced testing.

Write the data down – remember this is Milligauss!

body voltage meterThe Body Voltage Meter, used to measure the electric fields that are often anecdotally associated with EMF sensitivity and transport the dirty electricity signals through the air from the electrical wiring to your body, sells for $149 on EMF Center -we found the Body Voltage Meter for $89.95 or $129.90 with the grounding stake on LessEMF. – there is another add-on at Less EMF that says 50’ Banana Extension (Cat. #A291-ext)………………..$19.95 – so if this is included in the EMF Center order – that adds up to approximately the $149 they are asking. I’m not actually sure what all these add-ons are… still researching. I would love some info if you have any.  

On Amazon – the Body Voltage Meter – with none of the Add-ons is $99.95 plus $13.50 shipping – for a total of $113.45

From the video below, where he Michael from EMF Center is unpacking the Body Voltage Meter – it looks like it may come with all of the extra add ons – but I would ask EMF Center if I were going to order… and I may just do that.  The phone number is 707-578-1645, or toll-free 1-800-638-3781 and this is the EMF Center’s Contact Page

For measuring the radio frequency fields, there are three meters EMF Center recommends.

For most people, we (EMF Center) recommended the Acoustimeter, which sells for $399. (same price at both LessEMF and EMF Center)

There is a new Acoustimeter on Ebay for $362.58 and Free Shipping – this can change daily – but worth a look!

The Acoustimeter is a user-friendly accurate RF measurement instrument which provides LED light and LCD text displaying peak, peak hold, and average levels of radio frequency electromagnetic fields, covering the spectrum from TETRA all the way up to and beyond the 5.6 GHz WiFi and WiMax frequencies. It has a digital readout which is sensitive0.02 V/m – 6.00 V/m and a sound output enabling you to hear the signal modulation. These features make the instrument the most useful one available to even those with severe electrosensitivity.  Read more at LessEMF…

If you are on a tight budget, the Acousticom is usually sufficient and sells for $199 on Less EMF and $229 on EMF Center.  This is s $30 savings if you purchase from Less EMF – this negates the savings you would get if you get the 3 meter combo package from EMF Center(below).  Knowing this, you would still have to compare shipping rates between Less EMF ($)? and EMF Center ($15) to see which is the better overall deal if you want to get all 3.

There is a new Acousiticom on Ebay for $180 plus $7.15 shipping – this can change daily – but worth a look!

A reliable meter with an economy price. Great for checking radiowaves from smart meters, wi-fi, cellphones and towers, and just about every RF source you are likely to encounter at home or in the office. Covers an amazing 200 – 8000 MHz with ±6dB accuracy. 8 LED light bar indicates field strength in V/m so it is very easy to interpret and has a very fast reaction time. Best of all, it has a dual sound feature which you can turn off if you want: Demodulated sounds allow you to hear intensity, and with a small amount of practice, what type of device is creating the microwave signal. Plus, an “alarm” sounder which emits a pulsing warning at higher exposure levels. Read more at LessEMF..

And the more professional TES 593 sells for $499. (same price at both LessEMF and EMF Center)

I found the TES 593 for $389.97 & Free Shipping on Amazon – prices can change daily.

On Ebay – there are TES 593 shipping from China and Hong Kong for as little as $346.39 if you want one that (supposedly) ships from inside the U.S. prices start at about $419 on Ebay. Still worth looking.

Need to measure the new 5.8 GHz phones, baby monitors, DECT phones, wireless routers, surveillance bugs or other frequencies up to 8 GHz?

This breakthrough in higher frequency RF measurement covers 10 MHz to 8 GHz and great for digital and analog RF signals. 3-axis (isotropic) measurement. Includes audio alarm with adjustable threshold and 99 point manual memory function. Extremely sensitive: 20 mV/m to 108 V/m (equivalent to 0.1 nanoWatt/cm² to 3 milliWatt/cm²). 4-digit LCD display offers V/m, A/m, W/m², or µW/cm². Choose to display instantaneous value, maximum value, or average. ±1dB accuracy or better. Uses 9V battery. 1 year factory warranty. Model TES-593.

Discounted 3 meter combo packages from EMF Center:  We (EMF Center) also offer discounted prices for packages which include all three meters needed to measure all three different kinds of EMF.  All the packages include the Alpha UHS gaussmeter for the magnetic fields, and the Body Volt meter for the electric fields.  Your choice is which radio frequency meter to use.

For most people, we recommend the 3-meter package with the Acoustimeter.  This sells for $819, at EMF Center — which is a savings of $28 compared to purchasing individually. This same package from LessEMF is $883.25 – more if you are in New York State because there is $75.08 tax in NYS.

For tight budgets, the 3-meter package with the Acousticom is adequate for most people.  It sells for only $649, saving you $28 compared to purchasing individually.

And the 3 meter package with the TES 593 sells for $919, saving you $28.

In all cases, the shipping fee is only $15 for the entire 3-meter package.


My conclusion, as of October 25, 2017 is that the best deal would be to get the Body Voltage Meter and the Alpha UHS gaussmeter from EMF Center – and get the TES 593 from either ebay or Amazon. I haven’t ordered yet.

I might order for my own experiments… but it’s a big investment with no return.

I am trying to decide whether this is a business I could help people with, given my sensitivities to mold. I would have to enter people’s homes to do the testing and mold messes with my brain. I am not sure I would want to expose myself to moldy buildings – and in my experience over 50% of buildings are moldy.
