How To Fight Mold Exposure

It’s not just our homes that we can prepare to defend against toxic mold growth. We should also prepare our bodies to fight poor air quality, damp environments, and especially mold exposure. These can all lead to several serious health issues, including:

  • Childhood asthma
  • Red and itchy eyes and throat
  • Headache and migraines
  • Weakened immune system
  • Persistent coughing 
  • Running nose or nose bleed
  • Bronchitis 
  • Pneumonia

Prepare Your Body To Fight Mold Exposure

Much like treating a home, there are tips and tricks to fighting mold exposure in the body. At TCB EnviroCorp, we want not only your house, but you and your family to be healthy.

Inhale Vitamin C

Oranges, lemons, limes, any citrus fruits you can get your hands on – or even just a nice old packet of Emergen-C. These can all be essential to keeping your immune system strong. They will help your body defend against toxic foreign invaders such as airborne mold spores.

From combating the common cold to increasing your overall immunity, Vitamin C has long been a “go-to” remedy. We recommend including a daily dose of vitamin C in your vitamin routine, (if it’s in gummy form, that’s none of our business) and increasing your intake anytime you feel symptoms coming on.

Eat Nutritious Foods

Nutrients and diet can make or break your overall health. Balanced nutrition that includes healthy fats, carbs, and macros such as protein, omega 3, etc. work wonders in healing and preventing illness. Within a week of eating healthier, you’ll notice that your energy level has gone up. You’ll be getting better sleep and managing all the activities of the day like a pro. Chances are, you won’t feel quite as bloated. In fact, all of your digestive functions may be feeling a lot better.

All of this will help your body and your families bodies fight against mold exposure. Some healthy foods we love that are jam-packed with healthy nutrients are overnight oats and smoothie bowls for breakfast, thai shredded chicken salads or quinoa bowls for lunch, and baked salmon and roasted asparagus on a bed of rice for dinner.

Exercise Regularly

WE KNOW. Exercise? In our wildest dreams. But we’re not saying to set an alarm for 4am and commit three hours to the gym each day. A proper exercise routine looks different for every single person. Keeping your body moving and your heart rate up for at least 20 minutes a day has significant health benefits you cannot ignore.

This could be taking a morning walk, kayaking, doing yoga, or going on a hike. Anything that gets you moving, and especially something active that takes you outside, will increase blood flow and circulation, offer support to the immune system, and help you sweat out the toxins that could be present from mold exposure.
