Mycotoxins don’t show up during normal health screenings, so it’s important to look for them specifically with a MycoToxin Test.
Mycotoxins are some of the most prevalent toxins in the environment and are a major cause of many chronic illnesses. Mycotoxins are metabolites produced by fungi like mold which can infest buildings and foodstuffs. A majority of mycotoxin exposures are through food ingestion or airborne exposure.
Diseases and symptoms linked to mycotoxin exposure are:
- Pneumonia-like symptoms
- Heart disease
- Rheumatic disease
- Memory loss
- Vision loss
- Chronic fatigue
- Skin rashes
- Liver damage
Because the symptoms are broad, mycotoxin exposure is often misdiagnosed as a variety of other chronic illnesses. If you have any of the symptoms above and have not improved with traditional treatments, then a MycoToxin Test is a good next step in either diagnosing or eliminating mycotoxins as the cause for your illness.
