Mycotoxins and Mental Health

Here's an interesting question:

Are Highly Sensitive People genetically predisposed to mold allergy?


Is the fact that there are more HSPs than ever before directly proportional to the fact that fungi is becoming more and more of a problem in the food and water supply because of the evolution of these pathogens to become multi-treatment resistant?

Symptoms of exposure to mycotoxins in those with mold allergy presents differently from induvidual to individual. And, it can occur that even if several people in the same environment are exposed, only one will present in neuropsychiatric symptoms.

Perhaps, the genetic component and 'chemical imbalance' of a great many with both situational and non-situational mental health symptoms like anxiety, depression, emotion disregulation, mood swings, and suicidality is actually a genetic mold allergy. And, the reason prescriptions and therapies have limited affect and the symptoms worsen as the person ages is because of cumulative exposure to mycotixins. Therefore, no mental health prescriptives will elimate symptoms until the mold toxicity is eliminated in the body and brain.

If anyone doubts or thinks I'm 'reaching', just Google "Mycotoxins and Mental Health".

The sad thing is, there are very few medical professionals trained in mold toxicity and I would guess even fewer mental health practitioners who are. #mycotoxins #MoldPoisoning

My New Idea Of A Good Time

Did you know that Otis Redding missed the 27 Club by just one year? Janis Joplin openly admitted to being inspired by him (and countless others I’m sure!). Janis supposedly changed her singing style after they sang together at Monterrey Festival. Yes, I am a bit of a hippy slash music trivia nerd 🤓

Anyway I love this song and cannot help but think of it when I see this picture. This was my first post hospital outing about a week ago. Who knew simply sitting on a bench, just sipping a cup of tea, could feel like such a luxury… pure bliss after 8 weeks of confinement.

Original lyrics by Otis Redding

Altered to be fall / autumn appropriate 🍂

Sittin' in the mornin' sun

I'll be sittin' when the afternoon comes

Watching the leaves roll by

Then I watch 'em blow away again, yeah

I'm sittin' on the slats of the bench

Watchin' the time roll away, ooh

I'm just sittin' on this wooden bench

Soakin’ up time

Left my home with my dogs and partner

Headed for the Cotswold border

'Cause I've had nothin' lately to live for

It look like nothin's gonna come my way

So I'm just gon' sit on the slats of this bench

Watchin' the leaves roll away, ooh

I'm sittin' watchin autumn’s alter, wastin' time

Look like nothin's gonna change

Everything still remains the same

Ten doctors couldn’t tell me what to do

So I guess I'll remain the same, yes

Sittin' here restin' my tired bones

And this loneliness won't leave me alone,

Two thousand medical miles, I’ve roamed

Just to make this perch my home

Now I'm just gon' sit, on this wooden bench

Watchin' the leaves roll on by, ooh yeah

Sittin' on the slats of the bench

Enjoyin’ time
