Fungi and Molds - Their Impacts on Health

Diseases brought by exposure to molds are an increasing problem that only a few individuals are knowledgeable of, including the majority of primary care physicians. Environmental health experts see an increasing number of people with complicated symptoms related to mold exposure.

What Is Mold?

Mold is a term that refers to various forms of fungi that are unwanted, unappealing, and have smelly, fuzzy growths. Mold species are found outdoors and indoors. Molds and fungus have a lot of connotations and most of these are unpleasant. On the positive note, molds are accountable for blue cheese and penicillin. Fungi such as yeasts are involved in making wine, beer, and bread. Even though molds, along with their pores, are everywhere, active growth of mold necessitates moisture, heat and visible surfaces, or behind drywall and under carpets. Molds indoors continue to grow in the presence of water, excessive dampness or high humidity.

Molds and Fungi

Fungi are made up of various organisms and as many as approximately 300,000 species. Fungi, as defined by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, are types of plants that do not have roots, flowers, or leaves. They include unrelated substances that can cause fingernail infections, athlete's foot, and certain types of pneumonia. Fungi reproduce through spores that are spread by air on land and thrive on surfaces. A lot of spores remain dormant for quite a while under dry conditions, yet typically develop into fungus in the presence of moisture. Molds are considered fungi. Structures and homes offer lots of opportunities for spores to develop even without water leaks. Common indoor species of mold include Acremonium, Aspergillus, Alternaria, Dreschslera, Epicoccum, Cladosporium, Stachybotrys, Penicillium, and Trichoderma. One of the famous fungi that are present in Asia is Fungus Malassezia. It is a group of yeasts that grows on the skin’s sebaceous area. 

Mechanisms of Health Effects Related to Molds

Fungi can exert adverse health reactions through three major mechanisms namely infection, toxicity, and allergy.

  1. Toxicity

Fungi generate a broad range of toxic chemicals referred to as mycotoxins. Adverse human effects from foods contaminated with mycotoxins have been recognized since the early 20th century. A significant amount of mycotoxins are found in indoor dust and fungal particles that are respirable thereby allowing absorption of mycotoxins through the lungs.

  1. Infection

In the past years, the incidence of infections has grown rapidly even with strong antifungal drugs as well as intense hospital treatment. Infections contribute to asthma, blindness, and other major health problems. For instance, the cause of fungus-related blindness may be as simple as an irritation brought about by a dirty finger.

  1. Allergy and irritation

Approximately 70 allergens have been characterized from vegetative parts, spores, and small fungal particles that produce beta glucans. Beta glucans have irritant properties.

Adverse Health Effects from Mold

Most people treat the symptoms of mold exposure but never pay attention to the root cause of the problem. They fail to make the connection that mold is actually the cause of the problem. There are many ways by which exposure to molds can severely affect body systems. Diagnosing an allergy caused by molds is very challenging. Some individuals will start experiencing abrupt changes in disposition, memory problems, depression, panic, anger, and agitation. Headaches are also very common but do not affect all individuals exposed to molds. Other symptoms include wheezing and coughing, itchy rashes, sinus problems, and joint pain.

Muscle pain is one of the unexplained outcomes of infection that may not be caused by a vigorous exercise. It can be anywhere in the body and is characterized by sharp pain and muscle cramps. If you ever experienced sensations of needles and pins whenever you fall asleep in an awkward position, that tingling sensation may be brought about by contact with molds. Researchers studied illnesses related to molds and found that humidity in an enclosed space is likely to have an impact on the living condition of people. They found a connection between dampness, humidity, home molds and depressive symptoms. Psychological stress and mental illness are also very apparent but can be controlled by reducing the sources of dampness in the house, adding plants to clean the air, and running a good air circulation system.

Digestive problems are also common causes or illnesses brought on by mold exposure. Diarrhea, stomach pain, nausea, and loss of appetite can be some of the signs of mold sensitivity. Even though these symptoms might lead an individual to eat less and lose weight, even weight gain is a potential sign of an illness related to mold. Breathing problems, respiratory diseases such as allergic rhinitis, asthma sinusitis, as well as hypersensitivity pneumonitis can be related to mold exposure. Itchiness, blurry vision, and redness in the eyes may also be linked to mold.

Treatment for Molds and Fungal Infections

1. Microcurrent Therapy

Microcurrent therapy has amazing effects in managing fungal infections. The frequency of the particular fungus will be neutralized through micro-current frequencies and the immune system is strengthened. Cell vitality is increased by reducing the acidic environment of the cell

2. Supporting the Immune System

Candida is one of the many forms of infection that may affect the health system. The interaction between the immune system and candida is a vital part of the treatment plan. Having a strong immune system and a healthy pH level is the body's first line of defense against an overgrowth of candida. Therefore we need to focus not just on the repair of the immune system from the damage that has been caused by candida but also in making the immune system stronger.

Ways to Strengthen the Immune System

There are many ways to strengthen the immune system. First to consider are probiotics. A healthy balance of bacteria will boost the immune system. Vitamin C offers support to the adrenals. Vitamin C and Zinc boost the immune system and provides the body the best opportunity to fight off yeasts. Vitamins also help in boosting the stomach acid which slows down the growth of candida. Other ways to strengthen the immune system is to perform gentle exercises, reduce stress, and ensure a healthy pH level through a healthy diet, rest, and harmonious living conditions.
