Hack my mold allergy

Answered on August 19, 2014

I've had a mold allergy for a while now. I also had a vitamin D deficiency (a severe one) and low hemoglobin. I do TONS of work to solve it :

  • I eat paleo without nuts, nightshades or fruits (call it immuno-paleo) and I limit sugary vegetables like onions or herbs/spices (I eat eggs in the morning and remove egg whites from some of the eggs, at noon and in the evening I eat 6 ounces of beef, I eat 1-1.5 kg of vegetables every day, always spinach/broccoli/chinese cabbage/green beans and sometimes parsley + cayenne pepper and turmeric)
  • I supplement quite some vitamins, I basically listen to Bee : Supplement Chart by Bee
  • I move around often, try to limit computer use and try to get enough sun
  • I take oregano oil (1 drop every day in a tbsp of olive oil), a pau d'arco tea, some pau d'arco extract, 2 rooibos teas every day, aloe vera, udo's choice adult probiotic blend, ...

While all this has helped tremendously (my allergies are disappearing, I noticed that if I don't take antihistamine I get lots of allergy issues). Now, it may be because I moved to our beach house which may have mold in it. My question is : is there anything more I can do to heal myself.

I've been on this lifestyle/diet for a month now. My sinus aches disappeared, I didn't get any new acne zits and I feel better overall.

Hmm. Anti-candida supplements can actually be very allergenic, making yeast-killing a double-edged sword. Personally I find that allergies are now caused by the things I once used to kill yeast (oregano oil, coconut oil) and have resorted to a few drops of food-grade hydrogen peroxide most days, and have no more yeast symptoms while avoiding allergenic reactions to the salicylates/irritants of yeast-killing protocols. I can't say whether it's grade to introduce H202 to the body, but it makes me feel decent without phytotoxins. Might try substituting H202 for your oregano oil etc. for a bit,

I don't... I've been supplementing for 2 weeks and added oregano oil 5 days ago...

Ok. Still, do you eat dairy? In my experience if I'm eating dairy - which is high in yeast - it's like the gateway for environmental allergens to launch a full attack. However, environmental mold is definitely still the same animal, roughly - so yes the beach house could be doing it. I wonder though, when did you begin taking oregano oil and associated supplements?

Well my allergies are not as worse as they used to be (not at all), but they are still there, and if I don't take antihistamines it's intolerable. It could be the beach house though.

I don't understand. "(my allergies are disappearing, I noticed that if I don't take antihistamine I get lots of allergy issues)" - this means that you _are_ having allergies _unless_ you take an antihistamine? If you are still having allergy symptoms, what are they? Do you eat dairy?

I think you've probably answered your own question, the moldy beach house!
