Black Mold Headaches
Sinus headaches find roots in
black mold exposure
Black mold headaches are a staggering 1/3 or 33% of your sinus headache
problems. If you get a headache and think it's just another sinus
headache, then it's time to consider that it may be a black mold
Symptoms of a black mold headache are identicle to a sinus headache.
You feel miserable, sometimes sick to your stomach, frequently the
black mold headache is just pounding so hard that you think a hammer
would feel better, and the eyes hurt too.
If 33% of your sinus headaches are black mold headaches, then there is
good news. All you need to do is find the source of the black mold.
There are two very simple places to spot if you could be suffering from
a black mold headache. One is an earthen crawl space and the other is a
In an earthen crawl space you will find dampness, a pronounced musty
odor, and possibly you will actually see the black mold that is causing
your headaches. In a basement look under each window and see if your
wall is streaked. Look at water softener equipment and see if
there are black mold spots on the tanks, look around cold water pipes,
humidifiers, dehumidifiers, and the furnace. You are looking for
inconsistent coloring. It is impossible to tell if a mold is "black
mold" or a different strain of mold without a professional opinion. But
find the discoloration and assume it is mold.
Black mold headaches can be diminished by getting rid of the black mold
source. The black mold source can be eliminated by getting rid of the
moisture source that is sustaining it.
Frequently finding and eliminating the moisture source is easier said
than done. For crawl spaces just assume that whatever moisture
protection that exists is defective and plan to put some preventive
measures in place. You can add fans to keep outside air circulating
within the space to exchange air and not allow excessive black mold
spores to accumulate.
You can add a moisture barrier to the crawl space which is a popular
fix and costs quite a bit of money too. This will reduce the moisture
within your crawl space and cut off the water from your black mold;
however, it will just displace that problem to the areas outside of the
moisture barrier. Think about it, you will be moving the black mold
zone a matter of feet, but it will temporarily stop your black mold
Another way which is discussed in "How To Get Rid of
Black Mold" allows you to develop a home made method for
eliminating your black mold problem and hence eliminating your black
mold headaches. The method costs you less than $150 in all.
For the black mold growing in your basement, you will need to find the
moisture source. Is it the window, is it the water equipment, sweating
pipes, and so on. Once you identify the issue, repair the problem. You
will find several suggestions in the "Top 10 Mold/Mildew Solutions"
report available to you for free at the upper left hand corner of this
page. For instance, wrap pipe insulation around your cold water pipes
to reduce their sweating. Caulk window frames that may be allowing rain
water to get into the basement.
If you have a sump pump then you will have a huge moisture source
problem and with the way the sump system works, you will need to read
the book. This was my main area of concern when my family began having
trouble with black mold; however, when it all started we did not even
know black mold could be the problem. Years removed from that time, I
"A 1999 Mayo Clinic study
pegged nearly all the chronic sinus infections afflicting 37 million
Americans to molds. Recent studies also have linked molds to the
tripling of the asthma rate over the past 20 years."
"According to a 1994 Harvard University study of 10,000 homes across
the USA and Canada, roughly 50% had some type of mold present."
When Harvard and the Mayo Clinic have studies on the issue, then it
must be pretty big. So are you having black mold headaches? According
to these two independent sources, you very well could be. That is one
of the reasons why I wrote "How To Get Rid of Black Mold", because it
was affecting my family. I counted my headaches for a one month period
in the winter one year. I had a headache 20 of the 30 days!
I did not realize at the time that I was having black mold headaches,
but when I got rid of my black mold issues, the cure was immediate. I
went from 20 per month to maybe two headaches per month. So it pays to
solve any issues in your home or apartment that may be causing black
There really is not a way to get around black mold growing within your
home because of the way homes are built today. They are wrapped up
tight to have better energy efficiency. Yes Tyvac is used to allow
moisture out and not in; however, it is my unprofessional opinion that
Tyvac, like so many other new things we buy, wears out after a time.
That's when the mold spores begin to build up and create your black
The sump system collects water from outside the perimeter of your home
and sends it via a tile system to the pump, which spits it back
outside. I have not researched the reason for this mechanism, but it
screams black mold headache to me. That is why the main system for
black mold prevention is taught to you in my book. Once you have the
method in place, you will not have to worry about the accumulation of
black mold spores in your home. Your black mold headaches will decrease
and you will feel better.
I was one of the people "popping" sinus pills several times a day to
keep myself going, but on the bad black mold headache days, I would
tell my wife, "I think hitting myself in the head with a hammer would
feel better than this". I know it doesn't make a lot of sense until you
are having severe headache issues like I was and I'm sure mine were
black mold headaches.
You don't have to take my word for it. Do your own research and start
with the two article in yellow above. I put the web address for each
reference there so you can look it up yourself.
I have personally talked to dozens of people, who after reading my
book, put two or three strategies together and eliminated their
problems. Thereby reducing their black mold headaches and improving
their overall health. In the "Top 10" report available above, you can
read a first hand account of a serious black mold infestation on the
west coast. The people I talk to are from coast to coast, Canada,
Australia, New Zealand, the UK, and nearly 100% of the English speaking
countries. My solutions work.
If you are still not sure that black mold headaches are your problem,
invest a little research into the problem and see if the research
matches your specific issues. Once black mold problems are solved for
you, you will have fewer headaches and just feel better. It is amazing
the secret and diabolical health effects that black mold presents to us
even in our technologically advanced society.
If you have read this far and you believe that your trouble with
headaches is not related to black mold then I recommend this headache solution.
Good luck and read on because there is plenty of information on this
