Many people become frustrated or confused because they have a problem with mold toxicity, but they aren’t even aware that mold is actually the real cause of that illness.
Mold Exposure Attacks Your Health and Performance
There are types of mold which release invisible chemicals which can really be poisonous. They can be killed, but it can be very difficult. They are called mycotoxins and contaminate your clothes, furniture, food etc. They affect our joints, our whole immunity, our nervous system, etc. They change the length of your life, your feelings and your thoughts.
Molds also create allergens and which can be very sensitive to people.

Where Can We Find Mold?
In case you live in a building damaged by water, you might have mold at home. It usually appears in poorly ventilated and damp areas. It sometimes appears as a problem with the plumbing, the result of a flood or a leakage in the roof. Mold can appear in areas with poor construction materials, behind drywall, in wood and underneath carpeting. Dirty HVAC systems are also known to gather moisture and dust, so they become the perfect area that will be prone to mold development.
Unfortunately, there are types of mold which grow in dry climates.
There is also a type of mold which grows in food. Foods that are especially high in mycotoxins include: chocolate, grains, wine, nuts and coffee.
We’re exposed to solvents, pesticides, various bacteria, viruses and chemicals. If you want to be high in energy, focus and performance, you need to make sure that toxic mold doesn’t make you weak.
