Brain Disorders Caused By Mold Toxins

advanced, research-based alternative and conventional medical treatments

Mold mycotoxins destroy the myelin sheath through lipid peroxidation and oxidative stress.

Mold toxins are lipophilic; fatty in molecular structure and fat-soluble. The cell membrane of every cell in our body consists of a lipophilic structure. Therefore, these lipophilic toxins can travel uninhibited throughout the body. These fatty toxins move throughout our bloodstream, easily cross and destroy our blood-brain barrier, and then accumulate in our fattiest tissue; our neurological system thus, the term Neurotoxicity.

Our fattiest organ is our Brain which consists of 60 percent fatty content. The fattiest tissue in our body is actually the myelin sheath on Brain Neurons and peripheral nerves, it consists of 80 percent fatty content, 25 percent of which is cholesterol; another reason cholesterol levels below 180 are detrimental to our Brain and peripheral nervous system!

When lipophilic mold toxins saturate the myelin sheath, they displace healthy fatty acids like DHA and EPA from fatty acid chains, causing fatty acid oxidation and lipid peroxidation. Subsequent inflammation of the myelin sheath causes “burning” neuropathic pain, females in particular get burning pain in their feet and legs.

Inflammation of the myelin sheath disrupts the electromagnetic field surrounding neurons which causes a subsequent reduction of the electrical signal.

Additional Brain Disorders Caused by Mold Toxins

Neurological symptoms of mold eposure

Depression

In a healthy brain, the production of neurotransmitters that affect mood are self-regulated, naturally avoiding an imbalance that could lead to depression.

Paranoia & Anxiety

Paranoia can often be caused by high levels of toxic molds, such as the trichothecene black mold toxin or the Ocratoxin-producing Aspergilus Mold.

- Irritability and Rage

Mold toxic patients often feel out of control in their own brain, describing the feeling by saying that it feels as if their brain is “hot wired.”

Parkinson’s Disease

A Parkinson’s disease diagnosis often results in a feeling of hopelessness.

- Short-term Memory Loss

Do you ever walk into a room and think, “What did I come in here for?” Mold toxicity may be the reason.

- Bipolar & Schizophrenic Tendencies

Glutamate is an amino acid found throughout every part of the body. In the nervous system, however, glutamate is used as a neurotransmitter.
