How Mold Can Be Toxic For Your Hormones & Beyond with Bridgit Danner
Indoor mold is unfortunately a common problem that contributes to allergies, asthma, brain fog, and moodiness. But did you know it can also impact your hormones?
When indoor mold is toxic (there are about 13 toxic species), it impacts the cells, brain, and body systems in a myriad of ways. Mold releases something called mycotoxins in the body, which causes many of the debilitating symptoms people are dealing with.
Functional Health Coach and Detox expert Bridgit Danner joins me in this episode to help break down exactly what is happening when mold gets inside your body, and what to do about it.
Some of the topics we discuss include:
✨How that breakthrough bleeding, thyroid autoimmunity, or even weight gain can be an indication of a mold issue
✨How mold directly impacts the hypothalamus and pituitary glands, which are the epi-center of our sex, adrenal, and thyroid hormones
✨What signs to look for in your house when you suspect mold
✨Following what your body tells you, even when it’s really scary (like dealing with a mold infestation!) can change your life for the better
We also talk about what supplements are most helpful when you are dealing with mold and mycotoxins, as well as testing that Bridgit offers to help you get on track.
Bridgit Danner was working as an acupuncturist in Portland, Oregon when her health started to deteriorate. She learned a lot, tried a lot of things, and even completed a functional health coaching program in an effort to heal herself and become a better practitioner.
Although several things kind of helped, nothing helped completely, and she hit rock bottom in the winter of 2014. Soon after she discovered toxic mold in her 100-yr old home and began the long journey of home and body repair.
Bridgit got into the natural medicine field in 2000 as a young environmentalist. She practiced as an acupuncturist and integrative clinic owner for 13 years, performing well over 10,000 sessions, before transitioning to the online space as a functional health coach and educator.
Bridgit loves to teach about everyday detox, functional living, and toxic mold illness at bridgitdanner.com. She is also the founder of a line of detox supplements called Functional Detox Products. Her Instagram handle is @bridgit.danner.
