Mold: the unwelcome guest that's crashing in up to 50% of homes across the USA, according to one study. As reactions to mold exposure are on the rise in many communities, we at Reset Big Sky find ourselves hosting a steady stream of clients seeking services supporting mold detoxification, often referred by Functional Medicine doctors. These clients describe a variety of symptoms. With so many seeking relief at Reset, we've decided to review what can help.

Common Mold Locations

The CDC notes that mold is very common in most buildings and residences, including those in Big Sky and the rest of the state of Montana. It thrives in moist environments, often developing around roof, window, or pipe leaks, as well as in areas that have experienced flooding. Mold flourishes on paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles, and wood items. Additionally, it can grow in dust, paints, wallpaper, insulation, drywall, carpet, fabric, and upholstery.

Understanding the Symptoms and Health Risks of Mold Exposure

Ever feel like your cozy Big Sky abode is staging a not-so-friendly takeover? While mold might not be wielding a knife, its effects can sure feel like a slow, sneaky attack. Here are some common symptoms of mold exposure that might make you want to don your detective hat and investigate if mold is the culprit:

-       Irritation of the respiratory tract and eyes

-       Recurring sinusitis

-       Bronchitis

-       Cough

-       Fatigue

-       Headaches

-       Nausea

-       Anxiety

-       Depression

-       Brain fog

-       Memory loss

-       Various gut issues

Sensitivity to mold may manifest as a stuffy nose, irritated eyes, wheezing, or skin irritation, while allergic reactions can result in difficulty breathing and shortness of breath. Individuals with weakened immune systems or chronic lung diseases, such as obstructive lung disease, are at risk of developing mold infections in their lungs.

There is research that suggests exposure to mold increases the likelihood of children developing asthma when exposed at a young age. Some studies are also linking mold and indoor air dampness exposure to postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and myalgic encephalomyelitis or chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS/ME).

How Reset Big Sky Can Help You Mitigate Mold Toxicity

Reset Big Sky offers a range of services aimed at reversing the conditions caused by mold over a series of visits. It's important to note that we encourage you to consult with your doctor for an accurate diagnosis and discussion of treatment options.

Infrared Sauna: Our sauna utilizes near, far, and mid rays to restore the body's ecosystem. This helps improve cardiovascular health by increasing oxygenated blood flow to cells, reducing inflammation caused by mold. The deep-penetrating heat waves allow for the removal of a significant amount of toxins through sweat, leveraging the skin, our body's largest organ, as a detox pathway. Clients typically use the infrared sauna two or three times per week for optimal results.

HOCATT™ Ozone Therapy: Another great option to consider is our ozone sauna. It facilitates detoxification through its use of zone therapy, infrared heat, and steam. A HOCATT™ Ozone Therapy will result in you sweating the toxins from your body. There are also specific Frequency Specific Microcurrents (FSM) that can be chosen for your session to target mold and support detoxification.

Note that a 30-minute session in the HOCATT™ has been shown to be 7x more detoxifying than 30 minutes in the infrared sauna. Many clients set a plan with their doctor to start low and slow on a mold detox--often beginning with the sauna and ramping up to the HOCATT™.

Massage & Compression Chairs: If you're experiencing fatigue, depression, or anxiety, our massage and compression chairs can help you achieve restorative rest for your body, calming your parasympathetic nervous system. Using the medical-grade compression massage chairs at Reset has helped clients free toxins from the body as they stimulate blood circulation and improve lymphatic drainage.

Binders can be taken with any of these mitigation strategies to support the release of the toxins.
