Case Study 3

This case study explores the journey of a 31-year-old female who faced a myriad of health challenges related to Mold Illness, Toxicity and CIRS.

SIBO, dysbiosis, heavy metals and severe chemical toxicity were also present.


At times, Mold Illness and Toxicity can manifest as persistent fatigue, chronic tiredness, and the unsettling cloud of brain fog that lingers.

Mold Illness may even rear it's ugly head in the form of anxiety, depression, and unpredictable mood swings.

Lacking the essential knowledge about Mold Illness and Toxicity, these symptoms can persist undetected for years, often being wrongly regarded as 'normal', ADHD or even autism.

Such was the case for my client.

Originally we had decided to work together on her gut with the main goal of enhancing her cognitive function.

However, upon running a full suite of tests, we encountered a multi-system illness.

Upon investigation, we identified the presence of two distinct types of mold and a Candida overgrowth in her system.

In addition, we uncovered evidence of gut dysbiosis, SIBO, substantial mitochondrial damage, and a pronounced accumulation of heavy metals.

Often with mold, the immune system becomes so dysregulated that all the other systems become opportunistically invaded by pathogens, or even just our old regular microbiome (SIBO).

Plus, heavy metals and mold are a recipe for disaster.

Especially for the brain and neural tissue.

But to detoxify from heavy metals, you must first detoxify from mold.

The first point of call is always to remove the mold.


Why? Because once you remove the mold the body can finally start to regulate itself which enables the other pathways of detoxification to occur

I prefer to work step-by-step.

System by system.

The worst thing you can do is remove, bind and kill everything simultaneously!

Even in Lyme Disease, you first treat the mold and then the Lyme.

Mold thrives in a heavy metal environment:

As you can see above my client was full of heavy metals.

Research conducted by Ludwig, Voll, and their German counterparts, alongside Omura's and Dr Klinghardt's studies in the United States, reveals a noteworthy pattern: microbes tend to establish their presence in body compartments characterised by heightened levels of toxic metal contamination.

The range of symptoms attributed to mercury toxicity alone, as documented by DAMS (Dental Amalgam Support Group), encompasses virtually all known human ailments.

Predominantly, chronic fatigue, depression, and joint pains are the most prevalent among these symptoms.

Exactly what was seen in my client.

In these areas of the body where heavy metals are present, the immune cells are notably incapacitated, allowing microbes to multiply and flourish undisturbed.

Key sites for metal storage and microbial proliferation include the teeth, jawbone, Peyer's patches within the gut wall, the connective tissue known as the ground system, the brain and nervous tissue.

These regions also experience vasoconstriction and reduced blood flow, limiting the availability of essential nutrients and oxygen.

This oxygen-deprived environment further promotes the growth of anaerobic bacteria, molds, fungi, and viruses.

Aspergillus markers high.

Candida markers high.

Even Fusarium fungi high!

Can you imagine what this was like to live with.

No wonder my client's cognitive function, depression, anxiety and fatigue were present.

Let's look at how all this toxicity impacted my client's other test results.

high toxic load:

Of course, heavy metals and mold were at the brunt of my client's toxin load, but having a toxin load this heavy often causes other systems to become out of balance.

For example, many of my clients with a toxin load this high are also suffering from oxalic acid.

Oxalates can be generated by yeast or mold within the body.

Excessive oxalate levels can lead to various health issues, including:

It's akin to having tiny, sharp glass-like particles within your tissues, resulting in considerable discomfort.

As you can see above my client's mitochondrial markers were alarming.

Especially succinic, a key marker for toxicity causing Cell Damage Response (CDR) to the mitochondria.

Combined with my client's methylation and folate metabolism also being destroyed!

Plus my client could not even undergo correct ketone and fatty acid oxidation.

Also being deficient in the B vitamins.

And many issues with toxin exposure and ammonia excess.

Plus an indication here of SIBO which came back positive on a specific SIBO test.


As you can see, when addressing mold-related issues, it becomes evident that we're not merely confronting mold alone.

The journey through Mold Illness is akin to peeling back layers of complexity, often revealing a multitude of other areas of concern and interconnected health challenges.

Mold can act as a trigger for a cascade of health issues, from mycotoxin exposure to elevated oxalates and more.

This intricate web of factors underscores the importance of a comprehensive approach to health and well-being, one that takes into account the holistic nature of the human body.

In navigating the intricate path of Mold Illness, we must recognise that treating mold is just one aspect of a broader strategy for regaining health.

Addressing the root causes, associated complications, and adopting a multidimensional approach are key elements in the journey to recovery.
