Bio-Film and Mold
Bio-film is produced by certain species of fungus / mold, bacteria, and some forms of yeast. These pathogens secrete a slime, or protective coating around themselves protecting them from other environmental pathogens, which would attack or disable them. Since pathogens within the bio-film are protected by the bio-film they have no direct contact with the blood, therefore any anti-fungal, or bacterial medications rarely have an effect on those protected pathogens. This is why many people suffer multiple sinus surgeries, over and over again, as the surgeon (not understanding bio-film) failed to remove all of the bio-film from the sinus cavities allowing regrowth to occur. Many times bio-film will harbor not just fungus / mold but also in the same bio-film it is common to find fungus / mold, bacteria, and yeast growth.
National Treatment Centers for Environmental Disease understands how to pierce the bio-film, and provide the appropriate treatment helping our patients avoid painful sinus surgery.
