For many people, the burning sensation in their chest associated with heartburn is described as mild discomfort. However, if you experience heartburn regularly, this malady can have drastic effects: limiting your diet, necessitating the ingestion of daily medications, and even undergoing various medical procedures such as an endoscopy, which requires anesthesia.
Contrary to belief, my next statement may very well be rebuffed by the mainstream medical community. However, it is my belief that pure, unfiltered sunlight, might be the most powerful cancer remedy available on the Earth today.
PTSD is a chronic condition where you will suffer from severe and painful emotional stress when “triggered” to remember past traumatic experiences. In this infographic, we reveal some of the triggers, symptoms and secondary symptoms that may occur.
Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) is a chronic condition of inflammation related to excessive stress on your immune system, nervous system and endocrine system (INE). Oftentimes the underlying cause of this stress is some form of biological toxin. If you are suffering from symptoms such as fatigue, muscle and joint pain, cognitive problems (brain fog), gastrointestinal symptoms (abdominal pain, irritable bowel), unstable body temperature, unexplained rashes, dizziness and vertigo, headaches, red and burning eyes, hormonal problems, sleep issues, and unexplained weight gain, you may be suffering from CIRS.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a chronic condition where you will suffer from severe and painful emotional stress as well as physical symptoms when “triggered” to remember past traumatic experiences. These triggers can include people, places, sounds, pictures, music, smells, thoughts and even many common everyday situations that can evoke a myriad of disturbing feelings and thoughts.
When you get sick with cold and flu symptoms, do you think that you need to "kill" something? Immediately you think, I need antibiotics or more Vitamin C. This line of thinking can actually be detrimental to your health and perhaps even prolong your illness. Believe it or not, your body is smart and will overcome many infectious problems on its own. Unfortunately, sometimes, the more you intervene, the worse you can get.
You could say it started over 50 years ago, as I was born genetically predisposed to having a chronic inflammatory response when exposed to the interior of a water-damaged building (CIRS-WDB). I recently have come to realize the effects mold exposure has had on my health. I previously had thought that my nagging symptoms such as muscle aches, joint pains, insomnia, and anxiety were the normal effects of getting older. However, now I realize that all of these symptoms manifest when I am exposed to mold and other inflammagans found in the interiors of water-damaged buildings.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Lyme disease is the fastest growing vector-borne (infections transmitted by the bite of an infected arthropod species such as mosquitoes, ticks, triatomine bugs, sand flies, and black flies) infectious disease in the United States. In fact, Lyme disease is becoming such an epidemic, the CDC is estimating almost 300,000 people are infected annually and 40% of Lyme patients will end up with long term health problems.
As you drive along the Jersey Shore, Long Island, or surrounding areas, the residual effects of Hurricane Sandy are still abundant almost 4 years later. I remember reading an announcement posted by the New York Committee of Occupational Safety and Health (NYCOSH) for any rehabilitation volunteers and workers warning them about the dangers and hazards that may befall them.
Are you suffering from anxiety? Maybe asthma, headaches, fatigue, leaky gut syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, or even psoriasis? Do you experience more than one of these health-sapping symptoms? You may have gone to your family doctor, an environmental specialist, a rheumatologist, a gastroenterologist or some alternative practitioners to seek treatment. Are you still suffering these symptoms despite seeing all these professionals? Unbelievably, you may be suffering from a chronic inflammatory immune system response to mold (and the contents of a water damaged building).
