Mould & Hormone Health

Serious Health Alert!

In Toxic Mould and it’s companion piece Mould Is A Super Toxin I outlined why mould is so broadly dangerous for our health. I also outlined how wireless technologies are supercharging this creeping health threat and making it much more likely to affect us in many different and detrimental ways.

Mycotoxins, which are given off by mould, bio-accumulate within our bodies. This means we don’t feel the adverse effects straight away.

Bio-accumulated mycotoxins start degrading our health imperceptibly until one day we reach our own personal, unique tipping point, and BAM! The world changes… And, not in a good way…

The presence of these mycotoxins have strong implications for endocrine disruption. Why should we be so worried about endocrine disruptors? Because according to the EPA, endocrine disruptors can cause developmental malformations, interference with reproduction, increased cancer risk, and disturbances in the immune and nervous system.

Mould & Hormone Health

Much of the research I’ve used to inform the short series of articles on Mould in the Wild As The Wind blog has largely been based on the medical insights from Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Dan Pompa and Dr. Margaret Christensen… and I will provide links to some of their work. But, there are other important resources, like GreenMedInfo.com, where you can take a deep dive into the subject of mould toxicity from all angles, not just mould and the hormonal problems mould causes.

Mould & Our Hormones

Anything which adversely affects our gut also adversely affects or hormones. This is because our gut produces and regulates the majority of our hormones.

A dysbiotic gut, which is struggling to cope with mould infection, or a yeast overgrowth, will not be able to perform all of the tasks it needs to to maintain homoeostasis.

When our gut is out of whack everything starts going South pretty quickly!

But mould has direct implications as well as the indirect problems caused by the issues mould creates within the gut.

Mycotoxins behave like hormones in the body. Like so many dangerous chemicals within our environment, mould is also mimicking our hormones and fooling our bodies into believing that they are hormones made by us.

I have written an article entitled Hormone Disrupting Substances & Cures so you can really understand the mechanisms behind hormone dysregualation / disruption caused by the products we use every day within our homes.

Mould affects us in precisely the same way as these synthetic household chemicals:

The mechanisms of mycotoxin hormonal dysregulation are multi-factorial: Direct hormone mimicking effects, indirect effects through limbic activation and gut disruption, as well as a huge inflammatory effect in the immune system. Inflammation by itself can disrupt our hormones and perpetuates a vicious cycle of imbalance and endocrine (hormonal) disruption.

Another article to read on the Wild As The Wind website is this one: Inflammation Is The Cause Of All Illness.

*** Inflammation is caused by stress and a lot of stress is caused by unresolved emotional trauma… ultimately they are one and the same thing… hence the titles to the various articles dealing with emotional trauma, inflammation and stress all making claims that these things individually are the root cause of all illness. So, there’s no contradiction, it’s because the root cause of all these things are the same!

Mould Is A Stressor

Anything which is inflicting abnormal circumstances on the body, like a yeast overgrowth, or mycotoxic overload, is deemed a stresson to the body.

Stress, in all of it’s many manifestations is the root cause of all of our illnesses, and so I advise you to read the following…

Stress Is The Root Cause Of All Illness

The following article on this short reading list focuses on the role our emotional health has on our overall health, and makes the case for unresolved emotional experiences and trauma being the precursors for our physical health deteriorating. It essential outlines how unresolved emotional issues in us all, (men and women alike), initiate and further exacerbate our physical conditions.

Essential Oils For Mould

Essential oils are universally healing. Not only can aromatherapy oils help us regulate our emotions and our hormones, they can even help us kill off our yeast and mould infections.

Aromatherapy oils can even help us clear our environments of mould infestations!

The following article explains how to use essential oils to heal you internal yeast and mould infections:

And this article explains how aromatherapy oils can be used to destroy mould infections in your home and work environments:

Mould & Anxiety & Depression

Essential Oils Anxiety & Depression

Anything which causes us to develop gut issues and all of the subsequent hormonal and neurotransmitter disruption will ultimately lead to anxiety and depression.

Mould is one of the most insidious causes of anxiety and depression because so many of us have no idea of the damage mould is doing to our health, and so we just ignore it in our homes and work spaces.

There are great essential oils for supporting mental health which can be used to stabilise our hormones and our emotions once we have dealt with the underlying mould infection.

Mould & Our Hormones Additional Information

I am going to share an article which echoes a lot of what I have written about gut health within this article and within the series on mould within the blog, as well as within the Wild As The Wind website in general.

The article I am about to share focuses in on how hut health and mould infections directly affect our hormonal and mental health. It also contains a link to a Mould Detox Diet, so I hope everyone who feels their hormones are being adversely affected by mould will follow these links and embark upon the protocols to reverse the damage. Who knew there was an anti-mould diet…?

This article was originally shared by Dr. Margaret Christensen in her email mail-outs… I’m a devoted subscriber!:
