Many people nowadays have a problem with mold. It can be found on different places and it can be visible, but it can also be invisible. It’s a kind of microscopic fungi which can be found flourishing in food, in our bathrooms, in the washing machines, inside air ducts, dust etc.
Mold has to be eliminated, otherwise we might obtain mold toxicity. It can be presented in different ways, for example like an allergic reaction: watery eyes, cough, sneezing, asthmatic episodes, sore throat, etc.
Here are also some other symptoms that you should know:
- Auto-immune issues
- Depression and moodiness
- Blurred vision

- Food sensitivities and gastrointestinal distress
- Skin irritation
- Neurocognitive problems: memory loss, confusion, brain fog
- Weight fluctuation
- Tingling in the feet and hands as well as numbness

Some chronic illnesses have been connected to a longer exposure to mold. The mycotoxins find their way and store themselves in different tissues, especially in the lymph nodes, spleen and lungs. They might cause chronic rhinosinusitis as well as chronic fatigue syndrome. Even if the people who start treating the mold make it disappear, their symptoms will still be present. Years might pass and the condition will probably remain the same.
There is also a high risk of developing health problems like heart diseases and cancer because of a longer exposure to toxic mold.
Luckily, there are ways to destroy toxic mold. There are even many powerful natural treatments that can help us against it.
One of them is the oil which can be obtained from tea tree or otherwise known as Maleleuca Alternifoli that has very strong antiseptic properties.
This is a tree that originates from Australia. It has been used by the Aborigines for centuries, especially in the treatment of skin problems and skin wounds.
