At Florida Detox & Wellness Institute, Dr Rick Sponaugle is proving that many patients develop alcoholism, OxyContin addiction or Xanax addiction while attempting to self-medicate the following disorders caused by mold toxicity:

Depression –

Dr. Sponaugle was recently informed by the mold toxicity lab in Dallas that he is the top mold toxicity doctor in North America.

The lab director, Dr. Hooper, was amazed that Dr. Sponaugle could diagnose mold toxicity with a 98 percent accuracy when other physicians using their testing average only 10 percent accuracy.

Dr. Sponaugle explained that he has correlated the brain scans of mold toxic patients with their brain chemistry patterns and mold toxin levels.

Similar patterns occur in patients suffering Benzene toxicity from the Gulf OIl Spill whichn is less common than mold toxicity.

Dr. Sponaugle also explained that he had personally suffered mold toxicity, Trichothecene toxicity, which has enhanced his ability to recognize the mold toxicity patient.

Dr. Sponaugle further explained that he has been correlatelating brain neurotransmitter profiles with other indirect biomarkers of mold toxicity for years.

Among these biomarkers – elevated immune markers [C3 A and C4 A ] and severe central hormonal suppression [pituitary hormones] including the following; Growth Hormone, MSH, ADH, TSH, ACTH, FSH and LH.

Dr. Sponaugle says that many patients suffering opiate addiction and Xanax addiction use drugs like Oxycontin and Xanax to “calm their anxious brains.”

These patients normally test positive for HLA-DRBQ genetics, genetics that disallow effeicient removal of mold toxins from their body and brain.

Supposedly only 24 percent of Americans have HLA-DRBQ genetics, however, Dr. Sponaugle diagnoses this genetic disorder in 80 percent of his patients.

This genetic abberation is found more commonly in patients of Irish, English, Scandinavian, German  essentially northern european descent. 

The immune system of patients with HLA-DRBQ genetics does not “tag” fatty toxins as abnormal or “foreign” to the body, hence, these patients do not efficiently remove mold toxins from their brain and body.

In fact, patients with HLA- DRBQ genetics remove mold toxins and other fatty toxins, 468 percent less efficiently, than other patients.

While the symptoms of mold toxicity are many, Dr. Sponaugle says specific symptoms are the driving force as causation of drug addiction and or alcoholism. Initially, patients notice insomnia, then they develop anxiety as well as insomnia. As the brain accumulates higher levels of the mold toxins, Glutamate and PEA, two very strong electrifying brain chemicals, become elevated producing excessive electrical activity in the brain, worst case scenarios develop bipolar symptoms.

Patients self-medicate their brain’s upregulated “electrical voltage” with calming drugs like alcohol, Oxycontin like medication and benzodiazepines such as Xanax and Klonopin.

Dr. Sponaugle has treated many mold toxic patients whose glutamate levels were so high that they exibited bipoolar symptoms and in fact, were sadly diagnosed bioplar by unknowing psychiatrists before coming to Dr. Sponaugle’s clinic. Two young male patients were, in fact, misdiagnosed by University of South Florida psychiatrists as schizophrenic, the university psychiatrists were, of course, naive regarding mold toxicity.

Fortunately, Dr. Steven Stahl of Scripts University in San Diego, recently wrote in his new book on Bipolar and Schizophrenia about the possibility of excessive glutamate, noy just excessive dopamine, being the cause of these disorders. While Dr. stahl did not make the connection with excessive accumulation of mold toxins as the causationn of excessive glutamate production, it is astep in the right direction.

Dr. Sponaugle has found excessive glutamate levels in 9 of 10 patients previuosly diagnosed bipolar, a condition felt by most to be derived from excessive dopamine production, hence, the majority of the medications for Bipolar are dopamine blockers. Dr. Sponaugle recently treated a paranoid 22 year old male who had been misdiagnosed by University of Miami Psychiatrists as bipolar and schizophrenic. When Michael failed to get better after six psychiatric admissions to the University of Miami Psych ward, his parents brought him to Florida Detox for Dr. Sponaugle’s evaluation.

Michael’s history consisted of living in a mold infested apartment on Miami Beach for just six months before he began to develop paranoia. He tested positive for high levels of the Trichothecene Black Mold toxin and Ochratoxin which is produced by Aspergillous Mold. Michael quickly responded to Dr. Sponaugle’s intravenous toxin removal program, his paranoia abated after just one week and after three weeks of treatment his depression and anxiety were gone.

Because mold toxins shut down hormonal production in the brain’s pituitary gland, patients suffer severe depression and severe chronic fatigue. Pure adrenaline [epinephrine] can not activate it’s receptors in the brain and body without cortisol, cortisol deficiency is common in mold toxic patients. Dopamine can not activate the D2 dopamine receptor [happy receptor] in the brain’s pleasure center with0ut adequate testosterone and thyroid hormone, both of these hormones are deficient in mold toxic patients.

Patients who suffer mold toxicity utilize opiate pain pills for the opiate induced dopamine hit in their dopamine deprived pleasure center, this temporarily treats their depression. They also benefit from the relaxing “calcium channel blockade” effect of opiate pain pills which brings quiescence to their “over electrified” brain.

While mold toxic patients experience severe depression and fatigue, they also feel like their brain is “hot wired” or plugged into an electrical outlet. Over time, as the mold toxicity worsens, patients begin to feel, from a physical perspective, as though they have a 25 pound cement block attached to each leg. Their body feels weak, lethargic and in slow motion, yet, their brain is overelectrified, anxious, irritable and often they exibit rage.

Mercury in Flu Shots

SHOULD YOU GET THE FLU SHOT?

By RFD Columnist, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, www.nmaseminars.com

News reports have been flooding us with articles warning that the impending flu season may be the worst in years. Even though it is difficult to separate the facts from the hype, a close evaluation of the flu vaccine will reveal that serious questions must be raised about the recommendations that are routinely touted, namely high efficacy with little risk. Anyone considering a flu shot should become informed about the substances coming through that needle, and should be determined to investigate the safety and efficacy issues that are still unresolved.

The Vaccine Virus

Each year, a new vaccine is developed that contains three different viruses (one influenza B and two influenza A strains). CDC officials select the new viruses based on which viruses were prevalent during the flu season in China and Australia the previous year. The CDC admits that the viruses selected for the new vaccine are chosen on the basis of an “educated guess.” [i]

What’s in a Flu Shot?

The influenza virus is grown in “specific pathogen-free” (SPF) eggs. Eggs are tested for a variety of agents—usually between 23 and 31—to confirm the absence of those specific pathogens. Laboratories limit the number of agents that are screened due to the shear abundance of potential viruses and/or bacteria to choose from. In addition, screening for every potential agent would be cost prohibitive.[ii] If none of the tested agents are detected, the vaccine is reported as “pathogen free.”

However, it should be understood that there is a distinct difference between “pathogen free” and “specific pathogen-free.” In its July 1996 report, the Institute of Medicine acknowledged that “although it is not possible to produce a completely uncontaminated animal, it is possible to produce an animal [or egg] certified to be free of specific pathogens.”[iii] Viruses that are harmless to their animal host, however, may be potentially harmful to humans.

During the manufacturing process, antibiotics (neomycin, polymyxin B and gentamicin) are added to eliminate stray bacteria found in the mixture. The final solution can contain the following additives in any combination: Triton X-100 (a detergent); polysorbate 80 (a potential carcinogen); gelatin; formaldehyde; and residual egg proteins. In addition, many of the influenza vaccines still contain thimerosal as a preservative. Thimerosal (mercury) is being investigated for its link to brain injury and autoimmune disease.

Does the Flu Shot Protect?

There are no guarantees that the influenza viruses selected for the vaccine will be the identical strains circulating during a given flu season. In fact, it has recently been announced that this year’s flu vaccine does not include the strain that is being reported by doctors in the community called the “A Fujian” strain. Outbreaks have been reported in Texas, Colorado and elsewhere[iv] that involve strains that do not match the current flu vaccine. CDC tests have confirmed that more than 80 per cent of the 55 strains of influenza virus isolated thus far are the A Fujian strain. Even so, the CDC still maintains that the current vaccine could provide cross-protection against the new variant, but the fact is, no one knows for sure.

Moreover, the majority of illnesses characterized by fever, fatigue, cough and aching muscles are not caused by the influenza virus. Non-influenza viruses (e.g., rhinoviruses respiratory syncytial virus [RSV], adenoviruses, and parainfluenza viruses) can cause symptoms referred to influenza-like illnesses (ILI). Certain bacteria, such as Legionella spp., Chlamydia pneumoniae, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, and Streptococcus pneumoniae, have been documented as the causes of ILI.[v]

Notably, these microbes are not part of the flu vaccine. Unless an organism’s antigen is contained within the vaccine, there is no protection conferred by the vaccine. It is estimated that most adults will average 1-3 episodes of ILI, and most children will average 3-6 episodes. The CDC also admits that “many persons who have been vaccinated against influenza can still get the flu”[vi]

Targeting the Elderly

The flu vaccine is generally recommended for persons aged 65 and older, and those with medical conditions who could experience serious complications from the flu. Medical journals report broad differences in effectiveness for the elderly, ranging from 0 to 85%.

The CDC states that 90% of deaths from influenza occur among the elderly. Considering that nearly 65% of all deaths (from any cause) occur in this age group, it is nearly impossible to prove that flu shots significantly increase life expectancy in this group. The truth is that most people—young and old—will weather a bout of the flu without hospitalization or complications.

A Serious Concern: Alzheimer’s Disease

Hugh Fudenberg, MD, an immunogeneticist and biologist with nearly 850 papers published in peer review journals, has reported that if an individual had five consecutive flu shots between 1970 and 1980 (the years studied), his/her chances of getting Alzheimer’s Disease is ten times higher than if they had zero, one, or two shots.[vii]

Dr. Boyd Haley, Professor and Chair of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Kentucky, Lexington has done extensive research in the area of mercury toxicity and the brain. Haley’s research has established a likely connection between mercury toxicity and Alzheimer’s disease. [viii] In a paper published in collaboration with researchers at University of Calgary, Haley stated that “seven of the characteristic markers that we look for to distinguish Alzheimer’s disease can be produced in normal brain tissues, or cultures of neurons, by the addition of extremely low levels of mercury.”[ix] EMPHASIS ADDED

Does this prove that the mercury contained in the influenza shot can be directly linked to Alzheimer’s? No, absolutely not. But further research in this area is critically needed because the absence of proof is not the “proof of absence.”[x]

Flu Vaccine Now for Children

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) adopted a resolution effective March 1, 2003 that expanded the use of the influenza vaccine to include children aged 6-23 months. The recommendations also included vaccinating those aged 2 to 18 years who live in households containing children younger than 2 years of age.[xi]

The flu vaccine most commonly given to children is Fluzone, a trivalent vaccine grown in chicken eggs. Harvested with formaldehyde and containing the recommended ratio of 15 ug of each of the three prototype viral strains, each dose of Fluzone also contains 25 ug of mercury.[xii] The new CDC recommendations include giving the influenza vaccine to children beginning at six months of age and then annually, for the rest of their lives. Children less than age 9 receiving their first flu shot, two doses of vaccine are recommended, with a minimum interval of one month between the two doses. However, the CDC does not provide a direct reference to substantiate this recommendation.[xiii]

On June 17, 2003, the FDA approved an intranasal influenza vaccine for use in healthy persons aged 5–49 years. Flumist is a live-virus vaccine that can cause a litany of problems.

Alternatives?

If you choose not to receive the flu shot, have a discussion with your doctor regarding other options. However, some simple and possibly quite effective things you can do for yourself to prevent the flu include: 1) avoid white sugar;[xiv] 2) exercise regularly; 3) get adequate sleep; 4) eat a healthy diet, omitting trans-fats; 5) drink plenty of purified water daily and 6) wash your hands. A common way people contract viral illnesses is by rubbing their nose or their eyes after their hands have been contaminated with a virus. The CDC states, “the most important thing you can do to keep from getting sick is to wash your hands.”[xv]

We are so used to taking medications—for prevention and treatment—that it is difficult to comprehend that these modest recommendations are really the most powerful ways to minimize the likelihood of getting the flu.

Making the Decision

You may decide to consult a physician who is schooled in alternative medicine to assess a variety of options for you and your family. What is most important, in the end, is to become as informed as possible regarding your options for keeping healthy and avoiding the flu.
