Our hunch is thousands of people are suffering from mold toxicity syndrome and are unaware. We hope this podcast will empower people with the tools to get out of the funk and finally feel good again!
First, a bit of background on your hosts. This year Jessica and I moved from Maui to her parents home in New Jersey. It was an emergency move, after our health came crashing down around us. We didn’t know what was going on.
For two years Jessica was getting sicker and sicker. We thought it was toxic air from a neighboring volcano, known as “vog”. We realized getting her out of the house, and into an air conditioned car or anywhere else on the island and suddenly she’d feel better. Get her out, she felt human and became a little chatterbox. Bring her home, she’d be exhausted, unable to speak intelligently, frazzled, with headaches, nausea and feeling sick.
For myself, my downward slide took the form of an old and fragile body…with unexplainable minor injury after injury, and with a fall that lead to a near death accident—later tested to reveal incredibly weak bone density, despite extraordinary amounts of weight bearing physical activity. On top of that I struggled with brain fog.
For Jessica, this meant she was back in bed, almost unable to finish sentences by the time it was noon. For me, it meant the shortest attention span and inability to multi-task I’ve ever experienced. And this from a life coach who’s specialized in working with those with ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), myself included.
It wasn’t until a week before we moved, with the world crashing down around us, that the cleaners found a 1-inch thick carpet of black mold on the upper level of the house where we couldn’t see it. It was in the walls, on all upper surfaces, on the ceiling, and even in the skylights…though we’d been told it was dirt.
We are so lucky to have gotten out. It’s been a long road, but we’re improving daily and expect a full recovery!
