It has been so very rainy this summer. We have seen our treasured Ellicott City, Md go through its second devastating flood in two years. And we have had very few hours of sun in the past weeks.

There are mushrooms growing in the grass. Conditions are perfect for loads of mold and fungus to grow. Many people have had water from the rain come into their homes.

So what does this have to do with how we feel physically?

Many people are feeling stuffed up or like a sore throat or sinus infection is starting. Some are even feeling like their thoughts are jumbled into a foggy brain. There are various symptoms of mold sensitivities, from skin rash to sneezing and coughing to post nasal drip to sinus infections to foggy thinking to headache to joint pain to watery eyes to itchy scalp.

If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, what should you do? First of all, know what you are dealing with. If you have a mold sensitivity, it is not the same as a bacterial infection, so antibiotics are not the answer. An accurate assessment of your health is important.

There are several ways that the body can overreact to mold. Strengthening your body’s ability to handle its environment is one way to improve your health. And decreasing the stress on your body is another approach. Sometimes the organs of your body are tired and need support. And sometimes your body is misinterpreting the severity of the attack on it and then overreacting.

If you are struggling with your health, an analysis can be performed and the stress on your body can be decreased. Once your body’s organs are analyzed correctly and specifically, they can be strengthened over time with the exact treatments or supplements you need. No more guessing.

Call the Natural Health Improvement Center of Columbia, Md. at 410-717-6610 for an accurate assessment of your health. If you are a good candidate for care, we will figure out whether Nutrition Response Testing or Advanced Allergy Therapeutics would be the best way to get started.

(Please note: Mold can be very dangerous. If you have mold in your home, it is crucial that you get it remediated by a qualified company. Rainbow International is one such company that I know of and there are others.)
