mycotoxins

    Has anyone managed to considerably improve or even cure their MCAS (with say mould or gut bacteria treatment)?

    So as the title suggests I'm wondering whether anyone's managed to improve their MCAS by fixing other ailments, ideally to the extent they can come off MCAS mediator medications or even tolerate high-histamine foods again? I've read MCAS isn't thought to be something you're born with, but...

    POLL: Have you been tested for Mycotoxins?

    This directly follows on from this thread which discusses the results of Dr Brewer's study, which showed that 93% of CFS sufferers in his clinic had high levels of mycotoxins in their body, compared to 0% for a healthy control group. I am interested as to whether these results are replicated...

    93% of CFS patients tested positive for mold/mycotoxins?!

    So this study has already been posted in the Research section of PR, but the thread has sort of died as it started back in 2013. I am reposting here because it's directly related to mould and mycotoxins and feel it's a useful area of discussion in this area of the site. Here is the link And...

    Causes of MCAS?

    Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone has any info on what are the possible causes of MCAS? And if someone's looking to try to address the root cause of their MCAS what areas should they look into, and in what order of importance? I'm also interested in whether anyone here has managed to figure out...

    "Go west young man", a podcast interview with a guest who did mold avoidance to put his illness in remission

    Here's a new one, particularly long, in which I interview a friend I knew from school who got sick with similar issues simultaneously to me and ended up pursuing mold avoidance in new Mexico. We talk about his whole journey but at the end we get into his visions for using permaculture to...

    Outdoor toxins of particular relevance to mold illness patients

    https://paradigmchange.me/wp/outdoor-toxins/ There is a lot of focus on building mold in me/cfs but often outdoor toxins are underlooked, because they are harder to study. But there is a large volume of anecdote suggesting they matter in me/cfs as much as building mold.

    Would you buy a home that needs low level mold remediation? Asking people who are mold sensitive/toxic...
