MOLD and Mycotoxin Testing

Your Holistic Doc

Mold Mycotoxins complicate human health in a number of ways and are often overlooked as an underlying ROOT CAUSE for many chronic conditions. 

  • Because their presence in the human body can interfere with your health,  addressing Mycotoxins in your body will facilitate other programs you follow to address your health. Please consider you may need to be tested for Mycotoxins, if you "feel something is missing" in your health and/or you are resistant to appropriate treatment programs created to restore your health.
  • Vibrant uses mass spectrometry technology to measure levels of mycotoxins in urine, and is able to detect molecules as small as 5 pcg, which greatly expands the number of detectable mycotoxins. 
It is important to point out the Differences here between mold Spores and mold Mycotoxins. Sick Building Syndrome is often ruled out in a symptomatic patient because the testing is limited to Mold Spore testing, which is often not the issue for these patients.
Mold Illness due to Mold Spores causes a limited spectrum of symptoms due to the fact that mold spores cause a different reaction in the body called a Type 1 Hypersensitivity reaction. These symptoms often involve the respiratory tract and include but are not limited to:
  • allergy symptoms
  • rhinitis asthma
  • hypersensitivity pneumonitis

Mold Mycotoxins are poorly understood and are tiny tiny lipophilic nanoparticles which the body rapidly absorbs. Interestingly, these Mycotoxins are what cause the smell of mold (or mildew).

Because Mold Spores are what are often tested in patients, the highly mold reactive person is often not correctly tested when the testing is limited Mold Spore testing.

Mold Mycotoxins testing with Vibrant Mycotoxin urine screening offers an entirely new avenue to evaluate a person for Mold Toxicity:
