Bio-Film and Mold


Understanding bio-film production from mold, bacteria, and yeast is key in understanding how to rid the body of pathogens from the sinuses, lungs and other parts of the human body.

Understanding Bio-Film

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.
