For some of us, mold is a battle of a lifetime. Growing up in the dry climate of Phoenix, Arizona, I wasn’t really aware of this thing called mold. Moving to Lansing and buying a house with mold on some of the basement walls was interesting, to say the least. I aimed to find answers and solutions to my question about what to do with this mold. Many YouTube videos were searched. I asked neighbors and received a range of responses. Some mocked it and others were very concerned. I did some minor remediation. The mold was removed. Mold growth in homes is like mold growth in bodies. It’s insidious. It may be small or hidden in a segment like the corner of the basement or the sinuses, but mold progression can be quite detrimental if it migrates or penetrates into other areas. It starts to stick and spread. In the human body, mold can migrate into areas with a previous bacterial or viral infection or it can penetrate an injured area. It smothers the microbiome of the tissue, reduces blood supply, and diminishes the function of the body. Fall can be a time when mold has less sun and more moisture: a recipe for disaster that gives it the opportunity to further migrate, penetrate, and persist.
Fortunately, mold has enemies including: Ozone, UBI, physical medicine (osteopathic manipulation or acupuncture), skin care products that penetrate mold-related lesions, and nutrients that help the body attack and remove the waste encountered with mold.
Hopefully, mold is not an infection nor a medical condition that you are enduring. If you are, MCHM has the understanding of this complex condition and ways to treat it. Your answers and solutions are waiting for you. Reach out to us today for a complimentary discovery call.
