Mold - The Cause of Migraine Headache or Sick
The increase in environmental
"toxins" plays havoc on a person's immune system. The body
must keep fighting harder
and harder, until it finally breaks down into allergy symptoms,
respiratory ailments, and you name it. Even migraine
headaches can be increased with this build up of
your home or work place.
In the hospital
environment there are technologies utilized to help keep mold and other
harmful pathogens (germs)
to a minimum. Many techniques, equipment, and supplies can be used to
decrease the amount of mold in your
living environment. Mold is a common root cause of many health problems
and is a primary cause of sick building
Respiratory ailments, migraine headaches, general health, and well
being can all be improved when mold is reduced or eliminated.
Mold, mildew, and
fungus are very necessary components in the natural world. They perform
the important function
of breaking down organic material. A tree falls down in the forest and
over time mold and fungus begin "digesting"
it. As the mold continues to feed, the tree is slowly but surely
decomposed until it becomes one with the soil
Without mold, mildew,
and fungus this decomposing wouldn't happen. Nutrients wouldn't return
to the soil. Dead
matter would just accumulate and lay around everywhere. So even though
mold is often a "bad guy" it does have
Mold is still
a problem in today's world
for people that have sensitivity to it. Mold in the shower, black mold
in the corner of the basement, and just about everywhere in the house
is an accumulation of mold plants. When you can see these microscopic
plants, then you know you have thousands, if not millions, of
plants that have grown into a colony.
When these colonies dry
up or die, the dead matter they leave behind can be toxic or at least a
problem for some
individuals. When the colonies are thriving, they produce mold spores.
These mold spores are all around us all day.
They are outside in the air we breathe and they are also part of our
indoor air. The spores float around on
currents of air everywhere. You can't totally eliminate mold
but you can make life much more mold free.
Mold in general didn't
used to be so bad within our living spaces. Our homes and work
buildings were not very
air tight. Then along came the 1970's and the energy efficient boom.
Housing science began creating air tight
structures. At this point in time, mold became a real issue to deal
construction eliminates much of the "ventilation" our old style homes
and businesses had, mold spores
begin to increase in count. The air that used to leak into our building
kept the mold spore count down "naturally".
However, with new construction methods, mold can keep building up. That
means more mold colonies (what we can see)
and more airborne spores (invisible to the naked eye).
As the "pool" of mold
spores begins to get deeper and deeper people become increasingly more
sick. Eyes, nose,
and throat are the usual problem makers at first. With prolonged
exposure, severe medical problems can come about.
One way to guarantee a healthier life with fewer headaches and ailments
is to improve the "personal environment".
eliminating environmental toxins like mold will improve every
bit of your life. Mold should be
kept outside, and your living environment should be as mold free as
possible. Look into ways to create this reality.
