Link Between Alzheimer’s and Mold Illness?

Link Between Alzheimer's and Mold Illness?


There isn’t one direct cause of  Alzheimer’s Disease. However, there has been a sited link between Alzheimer’s and mold illness.  Alzheimer’s Disease has multiple types or staging that are contracted in a variety of ways.

Subtype 3 is commonly called the Inhalational Alzheimer’s Illness (IAD) and is caused by breathing in poisons which bioaccumulate over a during of time. Respiratory exposure to any mold, not just the particularly toxic ones like Stachybotrys, may be capable of causing brain inflammation, cognitive deficits, and emotional problems.

According to Dr. Bredesen’s “Inhalation Alzheimer’s” he reported patients who developed Type 3 Alzheimer’s after prolonged exposure to mold. Type 3 appears to develop as a protective effect against toxins, such as heavy metals and mycotoxins from mold. He also reported treating patients who contracted CIRS, after exposure to a mold-infested home. Patients who eventually end up with dementia often have all the lab estimations of CIRS. They commonly have a HLA‐DR/DQ that is related to Mold or Lyme. He reports in his findings that many individuals who have intellectual decay, who are coming in with the Type 3, have numerous exposures with mold.

Alzheimer’s progresses slowly, as is an untreated mold/fungal infections. Alzheimer’s patients show signs of inflammation and a compromised immune system, which mold/fungal infections seem to also trigger.
