Mould & Mycotoxin Testing:

Mycotoxins in your body: Moulds produce toxins called Mycotoxins that can be tested with a urine sample. This can be helpful to determine levels of some moulds such as Ochtatoxin A, Aflatoxin group and Trichothecene group.

Inflammatory affects of Mould/Biotoxins  (C3a, C4a, TGFbeta-1, MMP-9, VEGF, Leptin, MSH, VIP, ADH/Osmolality). Inflammatory markers can be tested with functional medicine tests to determine the affect the mould has been having in your body and will give more information to be able to treat more appropriately.
