O.M.G…This is incredibly interesting to me, this is gonna be long, but bare with me plz…my parents basement flooded. Badly. They are on a set income and so we got the water out, but repairs have gone slower then we had hoped.
My father has suffered, to the point of being hospitalized for weeks at a time, due to his breathing being so bad. His o2 levels were so low last time he went in to the dr for it, his dr said he didnt know how my dad was still conscious!!.. because there was so little oxygen in his blood making it to his brain and other major organs. My moms hair is falling out in clumps, and shes had a very hard time mantaining her weight. Shes small, and was struggling to not lose weight. But was also always sickly.
We all assumed it was a lifetime of smoking finally catching up to him. And drs thought maybe it was COPD. But nothings came back 100% conclusive. And his health has gone down hill so fast. Now he has to be on oxygen 24/7.
So because of his rapidly declining health, they have avoided a hard winter here in Maine, and have opted to move to their second home in Florida full time. Its been a god send for my dad. He needs his oxygen still, but not 24/7 now. And over all he feels better.
Well, when they left for FL. They needed someone to house sit, our winters in Maine are so harsh and demanding you absolutely can NOT leave a home un attended. Youd come back to no water pipes left working and your roof caved in, among other things. SO, my husband and my son and myself moved in.
Our plan was to work on the basement throughout the winter, so its all set for them to stay in when they come back to visit in the summer.
Except theres one BIG problem…we are all now sick. Pounding migrains, constant bouts of nauseousness daily, sinus infections, my skin is behaving differently then usual, and mine n my husbands hair is thinning…my 4 year old son has a skin disorder. And its been so hard to keep under control. Its heart breaking really. (very similar side effects as my mom and dad had, but theirs were blamed on old age and other medical problems. So no connection was made…before now)
And so im reading this thread just now, and it clicked, a light bulb went off…WE ARE ALL BEING POISONED BY MOLD FROM THE BASEMENT!
You guys may have just saved my dads life. Im not joking. I now have ONE thing that can be causing all of our symptoms. And i know its not yet been considered by our drs.
But it makes perfect sense! My husband and myself found SO MUCH MOLD on the beams and sheet rock in the basement. Never seen before because we had to pull the wall back to expose it.
Im calling my parents rite now, and making plans to get my family out of here until the molds all gone and cleaned up… i knew mold was BAD for your health. But i didnt realize all the symptoms it caused.
I had NO explanation for mine and my husbands symptoms. But we knew they clearly started shortly after moving in here, shortly before christmas time 18.
Im scared because i dont know what damage this is doing to us…but based off my dads severe and rapid decline in health, i know it cant be good.
With that said, what are your recommendations for ALL NATURAL clenses. I am of course going to speak with our dr. But i always opt for all natural remedies for my son, as his skin disorder makes him basically allergic to everything. (Dust makes him break out in hive life patches from head to toe, same with body sprays, laundry soap, etc doesnt even have to come in direct contact with it. Just in the same room) SO, I want to explore options to help clear out any toxins, and if not for him, then for my husband and myself.
(Off to go bleach the entire basement with a facemask on )
