Learn to Treat Black Mold Poisoning (http://www.sxc.hu/profile/ZoofytheJi)

Black mould, which is scientifically known as Stachybotrys atra, is a black or dark green, tar-like mould that has serious health risks if breathed, ingested or inhaled. Black mould poisoning is scientifically called "stachybotryotoxicosis," and is very dangerous, especially for young children and the elderly. Stachybotryotoxicosis symptoms include skin rashes around armpits and other areas that commonly perspire, burning around the eyes and nose, chest tightness, fever, coughing and bloody mucous.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Remove the afflicted patient from the mouldy area. The patient will not get better until he or she is removed from the toxic environment.

  2. 2

    Get laboratory blood tests taken. This way, a doctor can determine that you do have black mould poisoning and take further steps to eliminate your symptoms.

  3. 3

    Get your diagnosis. After the doctor determines that you have black mould, he or she will prescribe an antihistamine and nasal decongestants, as well as an inhaler if you are wheezing or having trouble breathing.

  4. 4

    If your case of black mould poisoning is severe, your doctor might prescribe immunotherapy, which is the process of injecting very small amounts of the toxin into your system in order to develop an immunity to the toxin that your body is reacting to.

  5. 5

    Have the mould cleared from your home. If you have pinpointed your home as the cause of the black mould, hire a professional to get rid of the mould for you. If you are still experiencing symptoms, call a doctor immediately and stay out of the house.

  6. 6

    Take 1000 milligrams of brown seaweed extract every day under the supervision of your doctor. Brown seaweed extract is a supplement that can be purchased at your local health food store. Brown seaweed extract absorbs toxins in the body to aid in flushing them out of your system. If you have ingested or inhaled black mould over time, brown seaweed extract will help to rid your body of the toxins. Take 500 milligrams before breakfast with a full glass of water. Brown seaweed extract will not cure black mould poisoning and is not approved by the FDA.

Tips and warnings

  • Black mould poisoning is a heightened toxic mould allergy.
  • Black mould poisoning can cause death in young infants.
  • Do not take brown seaweed extract before discussing your dosage with your doctor.
