Putting the Brakes on Neuropathy: Understanding the Role of Mold
Defining Neuropathy and Identifying Degenerating Nerves
Don't let neuropathy advance unchecked. Here's what you need to know. First, let's define neuropathy. Take a look at this image. The red area represents your leg, where neuropathy is beginning to develop. The nerves in this area are starting to degenerate. Observe the pink nerve and the dark red blotches, which indicate nerve degeneration and decay.
The Importance of Testing for Mold
One essential lab test to consider is checking for mold. This simple urine test can determine if mold is present in your body. To illustrate the impact of mold, let's discuss a client's case.
A Case Study: High Levels of Mold
When we tested her for mold, her Gliotoxin levels were shockingly high at 25,539 (normal levels are below 200). This showed she had a massive amount of mold in her body.
The Four Critical Ways Mold Affects Your Nerves
Research indicates that mold can affect your nerves in four critical ways:
1. Neurotoxicity: Mold in your body can cause your nerves to degenerate.
2. Inflammation: Mold leads to chronic inflammation, resulting in degenerating nerves. This may explain why some people visit multiple doctors without finding a solution—they haven't been tested for mold.
3. Blood-brain barrier disruption: Mold can impact the blood-brain barrier, which in turn affects neuropathy. When the blood-brain barrier is compromised, your body may perceive more pain because the brain's ability to diminish pain is hindered.
4. Overall detrimental effects: Mold exposure can reveal your body's weakest points, and for some, that may be neuropathy.
