Non-Toxic Tips From the Experts: Clean Up Mold and Residual Spores

Time to clean up Mold and residual spores in your home? Non-Toxic Tips from the experts.

Mold Remediation Strategy of Dr. Lee Cowden -recommended to us by Dr. Doug Phillips

A USA board-certified cardiologist and internist who is internationally known for his knowledge and skill in practicing and teaching integrative medicine. He has co-authored many books and articles on integrative medicine and has pioneered successful treatments of cancer, autism, Lyme disease and many other illnesses.

Procedure for Space that has been physically remediated- after all the water leaks are resolved and the mold contaminated building materials are replaced with new uncontaminated building materials.

Use the Concentrate Liquid EC3 in the Portable Fogger to kill mold in the air of a building AFTER you have resolved all the water and environmental issues.


Portable Hand Held FOGGER

If the building has 8 rooms-

  • use about 2 ounces of the concentrate sprayed into each room.
  • A little more than 2 ounces for the big rooms and a little less than 2 ounces for small rooms.
  • If more than 8 rooms, you probably need to buy more than one bottle of the Concentrate.
  • All Closet Doors must be open in each room when fogging with the Ec3 concentrate.

Several Hours Later-

  • After fogging is complete, run a portable HEPA /Charcoal Filter in the house for a few days.
  • Moving it from room to room, but NOT in the bedroom where people are sleeping at night.

At the Academy we use the Austin Air Filter Health Mate Plus – a good quality Hepa/Charcoal Filter

Quite and effective- easy to move and fits well in our space.

Dr. Cowdens recommended unit – Guardian Hepa Filter

If the area continues to have issues-

  • At the Academy we like the Air Reactor by HITech Air Solutions for areas that need constant mold, fungus, virus, clearning. Especially areas where you cannot remediate fully, in basements, warehouses, school gymnasiums, etc.
  • This unit is used by many sport teams to keep equipment free of shared germs.
  • The machine is run 24/7 or when you know you will be in the room you can run it in advance.
  • If a burning smell happens when you first use it, that is positive as it is neutralizing the toxins, and make a smell during the reaction taking place. Give it time to work.
  • Please also use binders, as those with mold and fungal infections can also experience a die off reaction at first.
  • Keep windows closed for best outcome.Ordered directly from the HiTech Air Solutions(See link above for pictures of machines and more information)

Mold Tests vs Mold Avoidance?

 Approx. 7 Min.

Mold Tests vs Mold Avoidance?

Oct. 24, 2019
Bryan Rosner makes a great case that your own body’s reaction is the best test for mold.
I would make the same argument for Lyme/MSIDS testing as it is so abysmal as well as extremely limited. An experienced practitioner will always diagnose clinically based upon symptoms. It’s important you become educated on symptoms as well.  These symptoms will drive treatment.
I have found these checklists to be far more accurate than testing.  Print them off, fill them out, and bring them with you to your appointments.  In my experience, treating this is like peeling back the layers of an onion. You start out with a set of symptoms that waxes and wanes but then morphs into something else. Many feel that once you treat for Lyme and bring the germ load, coinfection symptoms will then become evident.  Please know that the title “coinfection” doesn’t mean it’s less important then Lyme.  These coinfections can be horrifically disabling.
Mold is often what is keeping patients from complete recovery.

Toxicity & Impact of Environment on Chronic Illness – Dr. Neil Nathan

 Approx. 1 Hour

Toxicity and the Impact of Our Environment on Chronic Illness With Dr. Neil Nathan

Published on Mar 15, 2019

Learn more at Cindy Kennedy, FNP, is joined by Dr. Neil Nathan, who discusses his book, Toxic, and how the environment can impact chronic illness.
Neil has been practicing medicine for 47 years, and has been Board Certified in Family Practice and Pain Management and is a Founding Diplomate of the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine and a Board member of The International Society for Environmentally Acquired Illness. With Dr. Rich van Konynenburg he did the ground-breaking clinical research which demonstrated the importance of methylation chemistry in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and he has recently completed a study with Dr. Robert Naviaux on the metabolomics of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. He has written several books, including Healing is Possible: New Hope for Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Persistent Pain, and Other Chronic Illnesses and On Hope and Healing: For Those Who Have Fallen Through the Medical Cracks.
He has hosted an internationally syndicated radio program/podcast on Voice America called The Cutting Edge of Health and Wellness Today. He has been working to bring an awareness that mold toxicity is a major contributing factor for patients with chronic illness and lectures internationally on this subject which led to the publication of his book, Mold and Mycotoxins: Current Evaluation and Treatment, 2016 and now to his most recent book Toxic: Heal Your Body from Mold Toxicity, Lyme Disease, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and Chronic Environmental Illness.
His current medical practice is the Redwood Valley Clinic in Northern California. He can be contacted most easily through his website,, through which consultations are available. Neil has been treating chronic complex medical illnesses for 25 years now, and Lyme disease for the past 15 years. As his practice has evolved, he finds himself increasingly treating the patients who have become so sensitive and toxic that they can no longer tolerate their usual treatments, and his major current interest is in finding unique ways of helping them to recover. The recent findings that mast cell activation and porphyria are more common than has been appreciated by the medical profession are of particular importance in this regard.
