Hi,

I am 44 years old. I have been sick for 12 years. Last June I had testing done by Igenex.

IGM

34 IND

41 +

IGG

18 +

41 ++

45 +

58 +

Multiplex Serum

Plasmid B Burg Positive

BARTONELLA

IGG 80

My symptom list is very long, mostly neuro

I started seeing an LLMD in Orlando in July. He advised me to find another doctor in October because I was getting worse and he didn't know what to do with me.

We found out we had mold in the house at that time and have been remediating the house and seeing a mold specialist here in Atlanta.

We had my 3 year old and 5 year old daughters tested at Igenex in October.

My 5 year old is having fatigue, muscle/ joint pain and hair loss.

Her co-inf were all negative. Her results were:

IGM 83-93 IND

IGG

18 +

31 IND

34 IND

41 ++

58 +

83-93 ++

My 3 year old is having issues with gluten and always sick/ runny nose. Her co-inf were all negative. Here are her other results:

IGM

18 ++

31 +

41 IND

IGG

18 +

23-25 ++

31 +

34 IND

39 IND

41 ++

58 +

I have found an LLMD in TN but don't know much about him. We are remediating the house and seeing a mold specialist in Atlanta. I would love any feedback anyone may have. Thanks

Thank you

My LLMD has ran many test and results are mold is present in my home and my lab levels indiciate it as well. So, like you, I am now fighting lyme, babesia, bartonella, and mold.

We tested the and many mold/toxins etc were positive. I was recently allergy tested as well and tested positive for all. I am getting 3 allergy shots 2 to 3 times a week.

The mold is very confusing and detailed subject. I am still trying to figure out what to do.

I know the first move is to get the carpet out of upstairs. We have hardwood down..

If anyone has info on this it would be great!!

Hugs!

Hello,

I too was concerned about mold since I live in an older home.Simple things to consider is purchasing indoor humidity gauges. When it is high, lower with a dehumidifier of course.

Also an inexpensive aid is a diffuser for essential oils. Thieves oil is what seems to be the choice. My health advisor also mentioned propolis.

I have an increase in allergies since I have become contaminated as well. I started allergy shots in the beginning but I think it just asks too much from an already weakened or wacky immune system. Sublingual immunotherapy is available and easier on the system.

I'm sure most who read and post here are familiar with Dr. Shoemaker and his work. If not he has some books out there like mold warriors and surviving mold and would probably be considered the leading expert on the subject.

Better days for us all.

Thanks for the link Kim!

rlp, thanks for sharing your story. Sounds like me Smile I have never heard of the Thieves oil. I will be looking into that, assuming can get this at an herb store?

Thank you for info on sublingual immunotherapy, again have not heard of this. It is impossible to make it to my MD now that she closes at 5 vs 6. Kind of leaves me with no option. lol

My Lyme MD recommended Shoemakers books just recently. I am going to start reading. This is just alittle too much at times! Lyme, babesis, bartonella, mold,....now thinking what other crap do I have going on and dont know it? lol

Thanks agian for your help!

raney,

good luck on reading shoemaker's book; my local library ordered it for me to read; i had only 1-2 wks. MAX. way too technical for my neuro lyme brain.

kim also posted in meds/treatment MOLD 101 post which was added to ONGOING MOLD POST about shoemaker's mold conference too.

check it out raney Wink

best wishes; hugs/prayers to you all.
