Mold and Mood... Even Brain Fog?
Could your depression be caused by mold?

Thursday, August 30, 2007
Ref: Dr Gupta, CNN

Are you suffering from brain mold? Whether you're one of those hot, exhausted people cleaning up after a flood or just fighting the good fight to keep that dark, dank film off the grout in the shower -- mold could affect your mood.

In what's being hailed as a first, a public health study led by Brown University finds a link between regular old household mold and depression.

The study included data from the World Health Organization of nearly 6,000 people in Europe. Some of the science is intuitive - sure, if you have a moldy home, you're likely to feel out of control - and perceptions of control are linked to depression.

And yes, if you're depressed, you might not be the best housekeeper.

Exposure to mold can produce physical symptoms that are well-documented: For those with allergies, asthma or suppressed immune systems, mold can make you sick- and if you're sick from mold, that could certainly affect your mental state.

But researchers hypothesize there may be another possible pathway: mold on the brain. Molds are toxins - and researchers suspect (but haven't proven) these toxins may impede the function of the frontal cortex, that touchy-feely part of our brain that rules emotion.
As someone slightly household-chore-challenged, I wondered - just how much mold might it take to affect my mood? It's hard to quantify, says lead researcher and Brown University epidemiologist Ed Shenassa, adding that while a little mold in the bath won't do it, the more mold your have, the more likely it is to impact emotion.

Let's be clear:
What we have here is an association between mold and mood-- more research is needed to see whether mold does indeed directly cause depression. But Shenassa says there is a clear takeaway from this study: "Healthy homes promote healthy lives." That means not letting carpets, wallpaper or ceiling tiles to get wet, and stay wet for more than 48 hours, and giving leaks in the roof, walls and plumbing the immediate attention they deserve, because they're all sources of mold.

The study appears in the October edition of the American Journal of Public Health.

Do you have mold - and has it affected your mind, and body?

The misinformation circulating about toxic mold is not deliberate, for the most part. For example, professional cleaning companies offering mold remediation services commonly advise owners of mold infested buildings to “save money” by foregoing sampling and instead go straight to cleaning and removal. The truth is that this practice can actually cost you a lot more money. A few hundred dollars of proper sampling will tell you what you are dealing with and may allow you to avoid thousands of dollars in costs for removal and replacement of building materials.

Practices for dealing with toxic mold, like cleaning infested areas with bleach and fogging with toxic chemicals, recommended by the EPA only a few years ago, are now known to be ineffective, or even counter-productive, and are potentially as harmful to your health as the mold itself.

Even material safety data sheets (MSDS) that, by law, must be provided by chemical manufacturers can be misleading. There are some MSDS sheets that display the words “NON-TOXIC INGREDIENTS” in bold capital letters on the first page, but when you read the fine print much further down or on the second or third sheet, it includes instructions to avoid breathing the fumes, avoid direct contact with skin or eyes, and often provides antidotes for accidental ingestion. They can do this because, under EPA rules and regulations, a product can have non-toxic ingredients and still be harmful to human health.

One of the most important findings of the more than 20 case studies completed by Dr. Edward Close is that diffusing essential oils that destroy mold spores, but also removes mold spores, dead and alive, from the air. This is a very important finding.

There is indirect evidence from these case studies that suggest that exposure to the toxins released by molds may also be eliminated by diffusing the oils.

All studies identified thus far, that have assessed the antifungal effects of essential oils, utilized between 1 and 100 or more single essential oil species, however none were found that used a blend or blends of essential oils for assessing impact on fungi even though it is well known by professionals in the essential oils industry that blending will tend to magnify or minimize, strengthen or quench, the effects of an individual essential oil and/or some of its components.


Flu-Like Symptoms
Nose Bleeds
General Malaise
and many more!

These signs are often misdiagnosed.

Dr. Close documents his first 20 case studies (yielding similar results) in his book Nature's Mold RX.
