What Is CIRS or Mold Biotoxin Illness?

Mold Biotoxin Illness, otherwise known as Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS), is a condition related to the contamination of indoor air, food, water, and sometimes from insect bites.

If you’ve come in contact with biotoxins, such as mold, fungi, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and other substances, this can cause an inflammatory response that may include a variety of symptoms. 

Water-damaged buildings are the most common areas of contact with biotoxins. Unfortunately, you may be unaware that your home or workplace contains mold growth. And this is because mold growth can occur behind walls, under sinks, behind furniture, in the attic, and virtually anywhere there has been water damage or moisture – essentially, in places where you can’t see or where you’re probably not looking. Water gives mold and bacteria an environment they can thrive, creating a toxic mix of chemicals, fungi, mycotoxins (dangerous toxins produced by mold), and more. 

Common signs and symptoms of mold and biotoxin toxicity include:

  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Disorientation
  • Static shocks, electric shocks
  • Frequent urination
  • Trouble regulating body temperature
  • Skin sensitivity
  • Pins and needles feeling on skin
  • Body aches
  • Headaches 
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Dizziness
  • Muscle cramps
  • Impaired memory
  • Can’t find the right words
  • Congestion
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Metallic taste
  • Watery or red eyes
  • Blurred vision
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety 
  • Vertigo
  • Lightheadedness
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Joint pain and stiffness

How Is CIRS Treated?

Eliminating exposure and removing the toxin source in a contaminated environment is key to reducing symptoms. In addition, a other supportive methods can be used to assist in treatment such as:

  • Nutrition
  • Herbs and supplements
  • Ozone therapy 
  • Far Infrared Sauna
  • Low-dose immunotherapy 
  • CranioBiotic Technique (CBT)

Removal of the toxins from the body, too, is often key for recovery and can require extensive courses of treatment depending on the level of exposure. At Newbridge, we’ll ensure that you understand the process, and our compassionate staff is here to answer any questions along the way.
