Molds and mycotoxins symptoms, labs, and treatment with Dr. Andrew Campbell

by | Oct 3, 2022 | Podcast

Episode Summary 

Today, I am joined by Dr. Andrew Campbell, a medical advisor for My Myco Lab, a laboratory dedicated to serum antibody testing for mycotoxins, as he shares multiple case studies in which patients have experienced exposure to mycotoxins and his hierarchy in treating the root cause of their symptoms. 

Key Takeaways 

Mold and mycotoxins are very prevalent in our external environment and possibly even within our household. Mycotoxins present themselves as a virus within our nasal passages and can lead to serious reactions, often mistaken for diseases. However, if you remove the root cause, and treat the mycotoxin exposure, your symptoms disappear. Dr. Campbell illustrates how to navigate from one extreme to the other in eliminating mold and mycotoxins with an immune system prepared for anything.

Mold Spores and Mycotoxins

Mold spores and mycotoxins go hand in hand, if you have mold spores you have mycotoxins being released into the environment. Mycotoxins are about the size of a virus and rest within the nasal cavities and lungs. Symptoms range from fatigue and depression to Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and Multiple Sclerosis. Dr. Andrew Campbell walks us through what to look out for and how to treat if exposed to mycotoxins long-term. 

Your Environment and Your Immune System

Advancements in household technology and evolving climate change allow for plentiful opportunities for water damage and mold. In your home, check for leaks at all possible corners of water: refrigerator, dishwasher, bathroom, laundry, etc. In restaurants, friends’ homes, offices, etc., prepare your immune system accordingly. We can’t always control our environment and the immune system is very intuitive if maintained properly. Dr. Campbell coaches us on supplements, exercise, and other daily habits we can incorporate for a healthy immune system.
