Mold | Candida | Alternative Medicine | Naturopathic Medicine

The difference in "life " and "quality of life".


From lectures of Dietrich Klinghardt, M.D. PhD, the world's leading chonic illness doctor, alternative medicine doctor.

Mold can be hazardous and a true threat to our health.
2012 symptoms of mold, heavy metals and compromised terrain in the human body
• Episodes of inappropriate fatigue during day
• Difficulty sleeping, waking unrefreshed
• General feeling of weakness, with shortness of breath after brief exertion, increased heart rate
• Sinus problems, sore throats, light sensitivity, "floaters"
• Increased thirst, but "water runs straight through", increased urination, light urine color
• Body aches (FMS-like or not)
• Difficulty with short term memory, concentration, word finding, mood swings, decreased assimilation
• Difficulty regulating body temperature, sometimes with night sweats
• Cough, headache, blurred vision, strange neurological symptoms: vibration, sounds, tingling, numbness

"The response of the host makes the disease"
Dr Lewis Thomas NEJM 1972;287:553-555

"Not the antigen (microbes or toxins). The role of the toxin/microbe lies in the initiation of the mega-multiplying response of the host's system to a given signal"
Dr Ritchie Shoemaker in "Surviving Mold", 2010, pg 8

"What used to work 30 years ago does not work anymore due to a much more toxic environment. There are new causes, new symptoms, and new treatments", (innovative protocols) says Dietrich Klinghardt, M.D., PhD. Many of these solutions are God-given with literature backing them and used for a specific purpose in alternative medicine only when an individual tests for them.

Mold Sources

Mold breeds on wood framed structures that are wrapped in plastics. Many US homes are built to breed in this way. Indoor molds were looked at by researchers at the University of Illinois, physicians at Harvard University, the Environmental Health Center in Dallas, TX, and the Environmental Health Center, Hoffman Estates, Illinois to determine the adverse effects of indoor molds.

"Indoor airborne mold exposure has been associated with adverse human health effects in multiple organs and body systems, including respiratory, nervous, immune, hematological and dermatological systems. If the Naturopathic Doctor and/or Alternative Doctor "only looks at symptoms and does not take into consideration biologicals (mold, fungi), Chemicals, Nutrition, or psychological/emotional factors, an erroneous diagnostic pattern will emerge."


How does Mold / Fungus Affect Us

The literature is evident that exposure to mold can effect multiple body organ systems and may continue to damage the immune and enzyme detoxification systems. Mold lowers the overall immune system which can invite other pathogenic microbes to flourish and the continued exposure over time is end-organ failure.


• Disrupt cell membrane functioning
• Interfere with immune system responses
• Create joint pain and discomfort
• Result in chronic inflammation in your body
• Create DNA damage with premature aging
• Bring on free radicals and oxidative stress damage
• Damage mitochondria in your cells, leading to chronic fatigue
• Impair brain structure, leading to lower IQ and ADHD
• Bring on cardiovascular and circulatory problemsCan result in mood disorders, anxiety, and depression
• Bring on metabolic problems, sometimes leading to weight gain
• (lead) Deposits in bone greatly accelerates osteoporosis
• Result in cognitive problems and Alzheimer's disease
• Interfere with the transport of nutrients inside your cell and metabolic wastes leaving your cell

Electromagnetic Frequencies and Mold 

When two mold cultures were separated in a research experiment and one was exposed to Electromagnetic Frequencies while the other was not, the one exposed to EMF had 600 times more toxic biotoxins and its growth rate was dozens of times faster.

It may be the case that Electromagnetic Frequencies itself may not harm our body's cells, but it may impact the microbes within us which results in more biotoxins. Dietrich Klinghardt, M.D. PhD lectures frequently on how the electromagnetic frequencies speed up the growth of mold in the body. At Natural  Health Innovations we use Dr Klinghardt's guidlines to counteract these frequencies.

"Molds incorporate heavy metals to protect themselves from white blood cells. Mold is “NOT” killed by the white blood cells."



Growth of Mold 

Mold and mold spores require moisture and a food source, such as cellulose or decaying food, to grow. As mold spores swell with water and grow, they elongate, forming balloon-like protuberances (hyphae), which secrete digested enzymes and micotoxins. The fungi then digest the food source to support their growth. About 100,000 fungal species have already been identified; in fact, fungi are established to comprise an astounding 25% of the world's biomass. Various surveys of homes in North America and Europe have reported that visible mold and/or water damage are common, found in 23 – 98% of all homes examined. ALEX V. DELGADO, Ph.D., Ed.D

There are no official standards at this time for indoor airborne fungi concentrations. However, indoor fungal levels above a range of 150 – 1,000 colony-forming units per cubic meter of air (cfu m-3) are considered to be sufficient to cause health problems. Numerous reports have documented that indoor air can be contaminated with fungal spore levels well in excess of 1000 cfu m-3. The most common indoor fungal genera collected are Cladosporium, Aspergillus, and penicillium. Alternaria, Stachybotrys, Rhizopus, Mucor, Wallemia, Trichoderma, Chaetonium, yeasts, Botrytis, Epicoccum and Fusarium species are often found indoors as well. ALEX V. DELGADO, Ph.D., Ed.D

"Mold is most always a part of the chronic illness syndrome along with other factors,"  Dietrich Klinghardt, M.D., PhD.

Mold along with other factors in the Klinghardt protocols are assessed on each individual at Natural Health Innovations using Autonomic Response Testing to determine what is needed for that individual to restore the body back into homeostasis
