Mold Exposure and the Human Brain
How it Works
The science of Neurocognitive Function Testing takes into consideration a persons age, educational level, employment status, social behavior, motor skills and a plethora of other factors that can accurately determine a condition called, neurocognitive function impairment. Neurocognitive function impairment is a condition that states that the exposure victim is not functioning at their optimal performance level due to a related exposure such as exposure to mold and or mycotoxins.
So What are the Symptoms of Neurotoxicity?
Neurocognitive function impairment affects the brain and usually causes multiple symptoms such as short-term memory loss, pain, numbness or tingling in the body, change in heart beat or pulse, anxiety, depression, mood swings, confusion, brain fog, dizziness, chronic fatigue and many other symptoms.
So What are the Dangers to my Health?
The organic poisons secreted by mold are called Mycotoxins. When toxins enter the brain they can cause chemical changes to the brains chemical neurotransmitters. Another degenerative condition caused by mycotoxins is Oxidative Stress, a condition responsible for many diseases. Mold exposure victims exposed to mycotoxins have reported being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), white matter on the brain, demyelination of the nervous system and brain, many other neurological and autonomic nervous system disorders. These disorders left untreated may become irreversible.
What are my First Steps?
- If you have been exposed to mold and you feel you are experiencing unexplained symptoms you may want to start with the FREE Neurocognitive symptom checker screening application.
- If your symptoms are compatible with others who have tested positive for Neurocognitive function impairment, you may probably want to take the full of Neurocognitive Function Screening survey.
- Should your full survey revel that further investigation may be to your benefit; you should schedule an appointment with the appropriate medical providers familiar with neurotoxicity and its treatment.
