Mold Toxicity – Advanced Treatment for Mold Toxicity

Mold Toxicity slowly killing Americans

Mold Toxicity Is Slowly Killing Millions of Americans

Dr Sponaugle has HLA-DRBQ genetics and personally suffered severe mold toxicity in 2006. His hospital office had a massive infestation of Black Mold “Stachy Botrus” hidden behind a water damaged wall. Because of his personal experience, Dr Sponaugle has designed an advanced intravenous mold toxicity treatment that more effectively removes mold toxins in just 4 weeks than 6 months of treatment with oral medications like Cholestyramine and Charcoal based herbal toxin removers.

Since 2006, Dr. Sponaugle has successfully treated over 2,000 patients who unknowingly were suffering from Mold Toxicity! Dr Dennis Hooper, the medical director of the Real Time Mold Toxin lab in Dallas, has informed Dr Sponaugle that he is now 30 to 1 the top mold doctor in North America utilizing their mold toxin testing.

Before coming to Florida Detox & Wellness Institute, many of these mold toxic patients had traveled to multiple states and various medical centers in their failed attempt to discover the underlying causation of their severe depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia syndromes. Many developed addiction issues because of their undiagnosed mold toxicity.

What are mold toxins?

Mold toxins are toxic gases produced by indoor molds. Mold Toxicity occurs when patients accumulate excessive levels of mold toxins in their brain and body. Supposedly, only 25 percent, one of four, Americans have inherited HLA DRBQ genetics and therefore, cannot make antibodies to mold toxins. Ironically, 90 percent of Dr Sponaugle’s addicted and wellness patients have HLA-DRBQ genetics. While the highest prevalence of HLA- DRBQ genetics is in fair-skinned people of Northern European descent, Dr Sponaugle has diagnosed the “mold genetics” in patients from Latin America and Asia.

Hidden mold is always present in water damaged buildings. Most patients are unaware, as was Dr Sponaugle, that they are suffering from gases produced by mold infestations hidden behind water damaged walls, shower tile and above wet ceilings. These harmful toxins go unnoticed when mold is hidden because we cannot see or smell them.

The three out of four Americans who naturally produce antibodies to mold toxins can live and work in water damaged buildings without suffering significant demise in their health. However, because patients with HLA DRBQ genetics have no antibodies to deactivate and remove mold toxins, they develop excessive accumulation of these harmful toxins. Mold toxins are lipophilic meaning their molecular structure consists of fatty acid molecules. For this reason, mold toxins migrate to and deposit in the brain – the brain is the “fattiest” organ, consisting 60 percent of fat.

Dr. Sponaugle has performed sophisticated and unprecedented research in mold toxic patients. He has correlated mold toxin levels in his patients to changes in their brain scans and brain chemistry patterns. As well, Dr Sponaugle has correlated mold toxin levels with global suppression of hormonal output. This research has proven that mold toxicity is causative for many psychological and neurological disorders including, but not limited to the following:

Addiction – Anxiety – Bipolar II – Chronic Fatigue – Depression – Fibromyalgia – Insomnia – Multiple Sclerosis – Neuropathy – OCD – Panic Disorder – Paranoia & Schizoid Syndrome!

Mold Toxicity Causing Panic Disorder and Bipolar Symptoms

Mold toxicity SPECT brain scan vs normal

The extra red and white areas seen on the mold toxic brain scan represent severely over active regions that were causing panic disorder and bipolar symptoms in Daniel, a 19 year-old college student who developed mold toxicity within 7 months of living in a moldy dormitory. Daniel tested positive for three different mold toxins, Aflatoxin, Ochratoxin and Trichothecene.

The government set toxic level for Trichothecenes, the family of mold toxins produced by Stachy Botrus known as black mold is 0.2 parts per billion. Notice that Daniel’s Trichothecene level was 3.2 or 16 times the government set toxic threshold. According to Daniel’s parents, he was the happiest 18 year-old in Chicago before he went to college where he developed severe anxiety, insomnia, panic-disorder and ultimately, Bipolar symptoms – for which Daniel was placed on anti-psychotic medications.

Daniel was also abusing Xanax and OxyContin in his attempt to quiet the excessive electrical activity in his brain. Chicago psychiatrists failed to properly diagnose mold toxicity as the underlying causation of Daniel’s panic and Bipolar symptoms. Daniel’s parents and his psychiatrists assumed the “stress of college” was too much for Daniel causing him to have a “nervous breakdown.” Dr Sponaugle has seen hundreds of kids become addicted to OxyContin after moving into a moldy dormitory or their parent’s moldy basement.

Daniel’s parents brought him to Florida Detox & Wellness for his OxyContin and Xanax addiction not realizing they would also discover the true cause of his panic disorder and Bipolar Syndrome. After just two weeks of Dr Sponaugle’s intravenous mold toxicity treatment, Daniel came off his anti-psychotic medications and underwent a successful detox for his Xanax and OxyContin addiction. He no longer craved the Xanax and OxyContin to calm his anxious brain.

Dr Sponaugle has successfully treated hundreds of mold toxic patients who were simply diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder or misdiagnosed with Bipolar Disorder by psychiatrists who remain naïve regarding the effect of mold toxicity on the brain. The majority of these mold toxic patients were abusing opiate pain medications and drugs like Klonopin or Xanax, to calm their anxious brains.

Medical Disorders Caused by Mold Toxicity

Addiction

Mold toxic patients abuse drugs that calm their anxious brain. They often become addicted to opiate pain medications like OxyContin, benzodiazepines like Xanax and Klonopin or become alcoholics. Alcohol activates the brain’s Xanax receptor.  All three classes of drugs “turn down” the excessive electrical voltage in the mold toxic brain, thus making the patient feel more normal.

Most American physicians remain naïve regarding mold toxicity and unknowingly, are the primary cause of addiction in many mold toxic patients – they prescribe benzodiazepines like Xanax and Klonopin to anxious mold toxic patients. These addicting medications treat the symptoms of mold toxicity, however, they fail to address the underlying cause of the mold toxic patient’s anxiety and panic disorders.

Unfortunately, mold toxic patients often find their way to Dr Sponaugle after they have already spent hundreds of thousands of $$$$$ on multiple rehab centers where they were simply diagnosed as a drug addict, treated for Xanax, Klonopin and OxyContin addiction, but, continued to relapse because they needed those drugs to self-medicate what doctors misdiagnosed.

Anxiety – Insomnia – Panic Disorder – Bipolar Disorder – Fibromyalgia

Excito-neurotoxicity is the medical term used to describe an over electrified brain, the phenomenon in which brain neurons are actually electrified on an hourly basis because of the excessive electrical voltage flowing through the brain. Mold toxic brains produce excessive levels of two powerful electrifying brain chemicals, Glutamate and PEA.

It is the increased activation of Glutamate and PEA nerve receptors throughout the body that produces an over electrified nervous system, thus producing symptoms of anxiety, insomnia, panic disorder, bipolar syndrome and fibromyalgia.

Mold toxic patients experience a gradual progression as they slowly accumulate more mold toxins, their symptoms usually begin with insomnia, then as they spend more time in living and working in mold toxic buildings, their symptoms progress from insomnia, to insomnia and day time anxiety. As they accumulate more toxins, their anxiety can progress into full blown panic disorder and ultimately, in the most severe cases of mold toxicity, patients can develop bipolar symptoms of rage and paranoia.

Insomnia

Initially, mold toxic patients may only notice insomnia at night. As they continue to accumulate more mold toxins in their brain, they begin to notice anxiety during the day, in addition to their night time insomnia.

Anxiety & Panic Disorder

With continued exposure to hidden mold at work or home, mold toxic patients accumulate higher levels of mold toxins and eventually progress from a generalized anxiety disorder to a full blown panic disorder.

Bipolar Disorder

Dr Sponaugle has successfully treated over 400 hundred mold toxic patients who were misdiagnosed as having bipolar disorder, when in fact, they were suffering from undiagnosed Mold Toxicity. These patients were previously treated with Anti-Psychotic medications by ill-knowledgeable psychiatrists who had no knowledge regarding the effect of mold toxins on the brain. Every one of these mold toxic patients was successfully taken off their anti-psychotic medications after they underwent Dr Sponaugle’s intravenous treatment protocol for removal of mold toxins.

Many of these misdiagnosed patients eventually found their way to Florida Detox and Dr Sponaugle because they were seeking addiction treatment for OxyContin addiction, Xanax addiction or Alcoholism. They were using drugs to self-medicate their anxious brains. America’s rehab centers are full of mold toxic patients who will continue to relapse until they are properly diagnosed.

Psychiatrists and Rehab Doctors at America’s Addiction Treatment Centers blame drug addiction as the underlying causation of Bipolar Disorder in many patients, when in fact, in many addicted patients, undiagnosed mold toxicity is the cause of their bipolar symptoms and their need to self- medicate with drugs and alcohol.

One of the most severe cases of mold toxicity seen at Sponaugle Wellness Institute is Gary, a 20 year old male, who prior to being properly diagnosed by Dr Sponaugle, had been arrested via “Baker Act” to the University of Miami psychiatric unit six times in a 9 month period for psychotic behavior. He was charged with Road Rage for ramming cars, something he had never done before. He was ultimately prescribed 6 different psychiatric medications by the psychiatric professors.

Prior to age 20, Gary had no psychological issues and according to his parents, he was a very happy and stable young man. At age 20, Gary got married to his high school sweetheart and moved into a mold toxic condo on Miami Beach. His parents and the university psychiatrists had blamed his psychotic behavior on “the stress of getting married.”  After just two weeks of Dr Sponaugle’s intravenous mold toxicity treatment, Gary no longer acted psychotic and his rage issues ameliorated. Within 4 weeks of Dr Sponaugle’s treatment, Gary was weaned off all 6 of his anti-psychotic medications.

Depression and Chronic Fatigue

Nor-epinephrine Deficiency

Dr. Sponaugle’s research has proven that mold toxicity suppresses the production of Nor-epinephrine output from the A 5 Nucleus, the brain factory that produces 90 percent of our nor-epinephrine. This is one of the primary mechanisms by which Mold Toxicity causes severe depression and severe chronic fatigue. Normally, Nor-epinephrine levels as measured on neurotransmitter testing average 40. Many chronic fatigue patients treated at Sponaugle Wellness suffer such severe mold toxicity that their nor-epinephrine levels are suppressed to 10. These patients not only suffer severe chronic fatigue – they feel like they have a 20 pound cement block attached to each leg. Upon asking, they admit they get dizzy when they first stand up.

Mold Toxicity Suppression of Pituitary Hormonal Output

A mold toxic brain, specifically the hypothalamus, is too sick to properly stimulate the brain’s primary hormonal factory, the pituitary gland. Pituitary insufficiency results in global hormonal deficiencies because the pituitary hormones stimulate downstream hormonal factories – the thyroid gland, adrenal glands and the sex organs.

Hormone Deficiencies – Thyroid Hormone – Cortisol – Testosterone

Epinephrine {Adrenaline} Nor-epinephrine {Nor-adrenaline} and Dopamine are in a sense, first cousins – they belong to the adrenaline family called the catecholamines. They cannot activate their respective nerve receptors in the brain or the body without adequate levels of the specific hormones, Cortisol, Thyroid hormone and Testosterone. Mold toxin induced deficiencies of these hormones cause inactivation of the three adrenaline chemicals thus causing symptoms of severe depression, lethargy and chronic fatigue.

Fibromyalgia

Mold toxic patients suffer from “total body pain” because of the excessive production of the electrifying neurotransmitters Glutamate and PEA, the excessive inflammation derived from toxic load and deficiencies of the calming neurotransmitters, Taurine and Serotonin, caused by mold toxin induced destruction of the intestinal lining which leads to poor absorption of the essential amino acids, tryptophan and Taurine.

The resultant up-regulation of electrical voltage in the body’s nervous system can be dramatic and directly correlates with the measured level of mold toxins. Dr. Sponaugle has proven that Mold Toxicity is a primary causation of fibromyalgia in many middle-aged women, women who were previously misdiagnosed at ten or more University Medical Centers. Doctors at these centers typically prescribe addicting pain medication and drugs like Lyrica, these medications simply treat the symptoms of fibromyalgia but fail to address the true cause of fibromyalgia.

Mold Toxicity – Multiple Sclerosis

Mold toxins destroy the myelin sheath on brain neurons causing the classic “white spots” seen in Multiple Sclerosis.

Dr Sponaugle diagnoses over 20 patients a year with Multiple Sclerosis via MRI of the brain. Many of these patients are middle-aged females who initially assume they are coming to Florida Detox for addiction treatment. Had these women sought addiction treatment at other rehab centers, unknowing rehab doctors would have been blamed their brain fog on drug addiction or alcoholism. The true cause of their physical and mental demise, Multiple Sclerosis, would have potentially gone undiagnosed for years.

Dr. Sponaugle uses his Brain Wellness Program combined with his Intravenous Mold Toxin Removal Protocol to reverse damage caused by Multiple Sclerosis. See our Multiple Sclerosis page for more information.

MOLD Toxicity CAUSING Depression Anxiety Insomnia ADDICTION

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.
