With a weakened immune system, the uphill battle to improve from ME/CFS can be insurmountable if your everyday environment is against you. Avoidance of known obstacles is paramount for symptom improvement to be possible. This includes avoidance of immune agonists such as certain foods (gluten), chemicals (BPA & glyphosphates), metals, and allergens (mold).
One of the most challenging of these to accurately assess is mold exposure. Little, if any, research is available yet that determines how problematic mold is for ME/CFS patients. However some suggest the incidence is worth exploring (1).
But how can you know if mold is a problem for you?
There are 4 standard tests that can be used as a metric to determine if there is mold in your environment, and if that mold is resulting in problems for your health.
