Does anyone know if mold can show up in urine from nuts and berries rather than breathing it in.my LLMD is intent in having me tested again since some was found in urine in past.

Ive had house tested twice and none found. I have radiator heat and she thinks maybe from childhood home which was also radiator heat. My workplace was brand new.

It seems doing activated charcoal and avoiding nuts and berries for a while would be a better choice before having insurance pay 400 dollars for another test.

Anyone know about food being the cause?

Ive posted this before in another topic, but here goes again:

Nutritionfacts just did a series of videos on ochratoxin:

Ochratoxin in Breakfast Cereals : https://youtu.be/Kc0yOsejLJ4
Ochratoxin in Certain Herbs, Spices, and Wine: https://youtu.be/39HHcESRMoE
Should We Be Concerned About the Effects of Ochratoxin?: https://youtu.be/OY9eY_XMBTs

So its something we are all exposed to via the foods we eat.

Those links were so helpful S13. Thanks.

Im going to take the activated charcoal for a week and send urine sample in at the end of that time.

I hope that's enough time to get it out of me and will test negative and get llmd off my case.

Here is an interesting article for you to read:

"4 Ways You Might be Exposed to Mold Poisons"

https://knowthecause.com/4-ways-you-might-be-exposed-to-mold-poisons/

An excerpt from this article:

"Certain foods are known to be commonly tainted with mold poisons. These include corn, peanuts, grains like wheat, soy, pistachios and other types of agricultural products. These foods are at risk for being infested with fungi, largely due to being kept in a silo for long periods of time.

If you regularly consume these foods, or foods made from these ingredients, such as bread, pasta, corn chips, peanut butter or soy products, you are likely exposing yourself to mold toxins regularly."

There's a long list of folks favs that also can cause issues. Coffee, cocoa/chocolate.

We can't avoid everything. Our air is toxic, our food is toxic and on and on.

It really should be about getting your immune system functioning at a level that will help you fight the bad guys.

Detox pathways must be working, flowing and supported, so your body can eliminate what you will be exposed to day in and day out.

If you live or work in mold toxic environment....that's going to make the small stuff like food etc impossible.

I live in the fungi capital area of the US. It will be never ending tx for me. My detox pathways everywhere are working except from my neck up the last few years.
Some days, months, seasons are better than others.

But I'm not giving up my coffee. [Big Grin]
