Do you think there is mold present in your home, workplace, or any other place that you frequently visit? Are you or a loved one suffering from an unusual illness that your doctor can’t seem to diagnose accurately? Is exposure to mold behind your sickness?
At The LaCava Center, we invite you to let one of our doctors take a look at your condition and give a precise diagnosis. We receive many patients who report to have visited multiple hospitals and specialists and undergone an endless list of medical tests, only to be disappointed at the end with misdiagnosis. Our medical professionals know the signs and symptoms of mold sickness inside out, and let you know that you are not suffering from a psychosomatic illness, but a real disease which we can treat effectively.
Signs and Symptoms of Mold Exposure
Exposure to mold can be a very serious health concern that is often overlooked in conventional medicine. Mold and fungus produce very toxic chemicals called mycotoxins. Different species of mold produce different toxins. That is why people suffer from a wide range of symptoms when they are exposed to molds. Some common symptoms include:
- Brain fog
- Depression or mood swings
- Chronic fatigue
- Skin sensitivity and rashes
- Unexplained allergic sensitivities and immune hypersensitivity
- Breathing problems
- Memory loss, short term
- Chronic sinusitis, ear infections or bronchitis
- Nausea and/or vomiting
Our medical professionals have thorough knowledge about the pathogens that are present in contaminated environments and are capable of doing accurate diagnosis and providing effective treatment. We not only focus on alleviating the symptoms of mold sickness, but we dig deeper and find out the root cause, eliminating the mold sickness completely.
What Mold Exposure can do to your Body
Mold sickness and related illnesses from mold exposure are real, and in some cases, very dangerous. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and Journals of American Medicine, all agree that Mold Fine Particulate are injurious to human health.
Mold sickness has been linked to lung damage, brain damage, cancer, asthma, Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis, fibromyalgia, and even death. It is also known to be a major cause of death in the elderly, infants, diabetics, transplant recipients, AIDS patients, and people receiving cancer treatments. Moreover, exposure to mold has been suspected to be a cause of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
How The LaCava Center can help you
At The LaCava Center, we work with Croft Pathology to measure the excretion of mycotoxins in your body. Testing of your environment may also be warranted to determine the site and degree of exposure. In some cases, a tissue biopsy may be necessary, which is helpful in legal cases as well.
Upon determination of mycotoxin severity, a treatment protocol will be implemented. This may include dietary changes, nutritional supplements, pharmaceutical anti-fungals, therapeutic baths, and recommendations for your living or work environment.
