Often overlooked factor in Fibromyalgia

Chronic inflammation is a growing problem and the frustration of feeling like %#*! with no medical explanation is awful! For the last 2 years I've been testing all of my clients with petri dish tests, and I've found mold in their bodies and on their clothes in MANY cases. Mold not only contributes to multiple health problems, but it is a burden to your body that makes it hard to heal.


Here's what it looks like


The first two pictures are of test results of mold/fungus in a person's body. We take a Q-tip nasal swab sample and rub on a plate, plus have them cough into the plate to see if anything grows.


This is the result we should get.


This is what we see in an alarming number of people!


These are pictures of test results we found when we tapped the mold plate a few times on a person's clothes.


This is the result we should get.


This is what we see in an alarming number of people!


If you would like to test yourself, call the office at 770-817-8028 and Elizabeth or Andrea can get plates to you and explain how to do it.


Find fungus/mold? Now what?!


The first step is to test the rooms of you home, your car, and your washing machine. These are common places for mold to grow. Once you find where it's coming from, we recommend one of two things.


1- If it's not too bad, you can spray a natural mold killing solution in the area a few times and retest. Often, this is all that's needed.


2- If it's a severe result, you should have your HVAC tested and have someone check for water damage. Sometimes water can leak from a dishwasher, refrigerator ice maker, roof or bathroom plumbing that you might not be aware of.


More than allergy symptoms


Many people are not familiar with the symptoms of mold exposure, so here they are:


*Muscle aches or pains and/or weakness

*Fatigue (or post exercise more extreme fatigue)

*Morning stiffness/ joint pain/ muscle pain

*Poor memory, poor concentration and/or difficulty finding words and/or brain fog

*Headache and/or light sensitivity

*Poor balance/equilibrium

*Skin sensations like numbness or tingling


You won't necessarily have all of these symptoms, but you will commonly have 3 or more if you've been exposed to mold. And different people in the same family & environment can all have different symptoms, including allergy symptoms.
