Mycotoxins are metabolites that are produced by mold. Mold can be found in water damaged buildings that can commonly occur in the workplace or home environment without being noticeable. Mold reactivity is more likely to be a major detriment to health when HLA positive immune responses are present. This heightened reactivity to mold is known as Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome or CIRS. Mold can also be found in certain foods like coffee, grapes, spices, and corn for example. To determine if symptoms are related to mold you can take our Toxic Mold Questionnaire and complete the urine MycoTOX test which will tell us if you currently have mold and mycotoxins in your system. Even if you are no longer living in a moldy environment the mold can persist within you especially if you have specific genetics that cause you to struggle eliminating it from your body. The MycoTOX Profile that EVND prefers to use looks at eleven different mycotoxins from 40 species of mold in one urine sample. Complete our Mold Exposure Questionnaire to determine if this may be a concern for you. Click here to review a MycoTOX Profile Sample Report.
