Mold Toxin Seizures Vs. Chris Volesky L. Ac

With a successful career and a happy family she felt unstoppable. Then mold exposure struck. At first it was allergies and respiratory problems. Irritable bowel disorder followed. Then came the career killings brain-fog. First she lost her job. Then her marriage. Finally she started having worsening seizures which threatened to kill her. Discover how Chris Volesky L.Ac used elegant botanical strategies and breathing exercises to restore her life.


Mold and seizures Vs. Chris Volesky Notes and References

  • This touching story has important lessons to teach us about gut health, energy levels, and neural optimization.

  • Mold exposure can affect you through skin contact. As the mold toxins come on damp drafts, they make contact with your skin. They strategically attack your sodium potassium pumps, causing extracellular flooding. This is an ideal breeding ground for mold. 

  • Mold and mold toxins enjoy the moisture of extracellular fluid, mucus, and microbiota. They particularly enjoy your sinuses, lungs, and intestinal lining. Mold and mycotoxins gravitate toward the mucus in the lungs. They disturb alveolar function as they begin flooding the tissue to terraform your body. 

  • There is a preferred balance of gas exchange for all living things. They will understandably influence the overall environment of your body to make it hospitable for themselves.They are working to change your internal ecology into something more suitable for themselves.

  • Your own internal heaven and earth is formed from gases and microbiota. Your mouth has a micro biome and so do your sinuses. The gases in your mouth and those in your sinuses will have overlap, yet will have a distinct vapor and microbial profile. Inside these microclimates there is competition for gas and bacteria. You have your needs, yet so do pathogenic fungi and there is a sort of push and pull over your internal thermostat, gas regulation, and moisture controls.

  • Hypoxia from infection of the alveoli will signal nitric oxide.It creates an inflammatory heat which signals killer white blood cells. Those white blood cells in turn release their own nitric oxide which serves to kill pathogens via oxidation. This is part of your immune system and it can be quite powerful. If you want to increase it you can raise nitric oxide levels in the sinuses enough to kill bacteria simply by humming.

  • Nitric oxide serves as a metabolic stand in for oxygen. Lowered oxygen levels will signal its release to maintain heart function. Initially it will also cause the bronchioles to expand. This is why jogging can help you feel like your lungs are open. That feeling of expansion allows more oxygen to come in. This is how nitric oxide signaling helps you to maintain oxygen balance in the body. There is a sweet spot for gasotransmitters to appropriate brochodilation for your oxygen needs.

  • Fungi also use these gases. They just may been a different ratio. The same gas that allows your lungs to open up may signal a pathogenic fungi through a sort of early puberty as it signals maturation.

  • The ideal level for you may not be the sweet spot for invading pathogens so they start to mess with the dials via their own gaseous signaling and through molecular mimicry.

  • In addition signaling gases and gasotransmitters serve as neurotransmitters. Having deregulated gasotransmitters is associated with epilepsy, seizures, and mental illnesses.

  • This is just the influence within the lungs, however these evil creatures carried on the damp wind with their pathogenic levels of gas can also slip deeper into the body like an evil Santa Claus provided that the host leaves out milk and cookies for them in the form of gut dysbiosis, mucus and liposacharides.

  • Mold toxins also enter through through food. A creepy 25 % of food globally contain mycotoxins, aflatoxin being the nastiest of the bunch because of its systemic effects on the central nervous system. Most of us have these mycotoxins to a varying degree and they influence our energy levels and ability to think clearly. Too many can start to give you brain fog.  

  • Diets which are traditionally thought of as overly nourished or “damp” are now understood to have associations with gut dysbiosis and higher levels of liposacharides. These liposacharide endotoxins and myctoxoins join forces to terraform your interior keep you soggy, inflamed and cause your nerves to put additional stress on the central nervous system.

  • You can see this in your face when you have had too much pizza and beer. As your liposacharides surge and you body becomes poisoned by your dietary sins, your face becomes doughy with bigger bags under the eyes. These are signs of water damage. 

  • Just how nasty are these endotoxins known as liposacharides? They are used to injure tissue in mice studies to show how effective other drugs and herbs are at healing it. Its a go to poison.

  • An efficient path to eliminating liposacharides and mycotoxins is to hit them at the same time. Botanicals which eliminate one tend to eliminate the other as well as help support homeostasis in the gut microbiome.

  • Digestive herbs such as shan zha and shen qu are found in Botanical Biohacking’s Microgard plus is used with meals. Shan zha works to reduce liposacharides by establishing healthy gut flora and directly inhibits the mutagenic effects of aflotoxin b1.

    In addition she used Tibetan footsoaks. The volatile oils, terpenes, and alkaloids soak in via the skin killing pathogenic mold, fungi, and bacteria, dissolve biofilms and helping to restore healthy microcirculation and signaling new nerve growth.

  • Finally she used Botanical Biohacking’s Wind tea composed of xiao chai hu and san ren powder. This formula combo is anti-inflammatory, antioxiditive, and regulates immune factors. It also causes bronchodilation to help support healthy lung function.

  • Whether we look at it traditionally at wind damp qi or through a modern lens of mold coming on those damp drafts we are observing the same thing. The word “qi” literally means “gas”. There is no need to attribute it to magic. The true magic is in the biology. As we get more specific exploring the gases which host pathogens, signal mitochondrial production of ATP, or serve as gaseous neurotransmitters, we find ourselves at a single resonant understanding. We must restore our bacteria and internal gases to an optimized state in order to live our best lives.

  • No matter how complex the case looks, it comes down to an individual pattern. It comes down to a relatively simple cause. If we can leverage tradition and science to find it, then we will find elegance and simplicity in the face of many so called terrifying “incurable” diseases.

    Next steps

If you are interested in premium quality wind and other formulas frequently used by Dr. Jin Zhao, we have a limited sustainable annual reserve for our ethically wildcrafted botanicals. The next sustainable harvest will be in August. 

If you are interested in the concepts behind this approach Jeremy Cornish and Chris Volesky will be teaching a seminar on autoimmune disorders and fibromyalgia with CMTW. It's based on Jin Zhao's approach plus medical qigong, and yi jing treatment protocols from Xun Guang Long Ph.D. Then it was further tested and refined into a protocol I developed specializing in fibromyalgia and autoimmune disorders. From there Dr. Sandra Subotich, Chris Volesky, Jeremy Cornish, and 40 other practitioners from around the world have taken it much further than I could have dreamed of via the Fibrohacking program. Their collective work is helping people I will never meet come to recovery and self sufficiency using upgraded versions of these methods. Through the collective clinical experience and leveraging automation the level of service and accuracy is higher than ever before. Jeremy and Chris are going to give you a complete background on the treatment, marketing, and management for these underserved populations of people. As you can see from Dr. Subotich's clinical case study, the protocol works rather miraculously. Sign up here. https://acuvids.com/…/diagnostic-treatment-simplicity-for-…/
