I have mold in my house ever since I moved here I’ve been sick it started to probably when I had food poisoning with mold in it I do doctors give me so much medication penicillin anabiotic’s all kind itching rash medicine everything you can imagine
Sorry to hear that, hope you are better now.
How do you know it's food poisoning with molds in it? Moreover, a mold is a fungus. If it's really the case, doctors would give you antifungals instead of antibiotics. Also, if you are allergic to the antibiotics, your doctor could change your medication.
If you are surrounded by black mold. Id suggest moving I bought a hm w/blk mold. 3 mths later 2sons and i in hosp. If u cant mv may I sugst bleach. Its prbly in walls pull back panels and spay blch&wtr mix 1 part blch 2 parts wtr. I will say prayers for you.
I lived in a place that had black mold, it took my senses from me, I couldn't smell or taste anything.

I lives there for a tear and a half , my boyfriend at the time started caulfing really bad .

So I got out the pinesol out and started cleaning,  that's when I found the black mold, I had a shelf built into the wall, it was pretty far up, so I got a chair, climbed up and saw black mold everywhere, I  did some further investigation and the storage room was full of black mold.

It didn't take me long to talk to my landlord and demand my deposit back, moved out and it took me a while to get all the mold out of my lungs .

If you are living in a place with mold of any kind, get out or have it perfecianly cleaned.
The molds got inside your lungs? Scared to think that it could get worse if you didn't start cleaning. Why isn't there a sign for us?!
How you manage to get mold out of your lungs?
It can only be treated with antifungals, such as fluconazole, and capsofungin and so on.
Black mold is in every house that's more than 10 years old. No exceptions!
Not only that, but there are many species of black- colored mold out there, but only a few are toxic; examples: Aspergillus species, Stachybotrus species,(which produce the toxin tricothazine). Many other species of black colored molds, however, are harmless.I wonder how much of the mold removal industry is a racket,preying on the uninformeds fear of EVERY mold species and the hype that is generated by half-facts and fear-mongering.
That is not true. If there is black mold then there is a problem with moisture. The roof is leaking, around a window is leaking or fireplace, or where some vent travels through the roof. The only other way is if the bathropm doesnt have a vent exauhst fan then when a person showers the steam goes free into the house and around A.C. ducks it will condensate and the sweat formed will feed mold. No moisture problem then no mold problems, it cant live or reproduce without water. There are antebellum homes everywhere in my area thst are over 200 years old with absolutely no mold.
Hey y’all want to go
where do you buy Black Seed oil & what does it come in, bottle, pkg.? Any prove it helps auto-immune diseases, like M.S.?
You can buy bottles of black seed oil at your local pharmacy. For people with an autoimmune disease, many articles have mentioned that black seed oil can help improve the immune system. If you take any prescription medications regularly, talk to your doctor before starting to take black seed oil.
MS treatment needs to suppress your immune system NOT boost it. The immune system is either over active or just active against the wrong You may make your MS worse if you make your immune system stronger.
