Dr. Jill’s Commentary
Nettles! I know herbalists aren’t supposed to pick favorites, but when it comes to the effects of mold, nettles are one of mine.
People affected by water-damaged buildings become super histamine formers as the body attempts to deal with mold spores, fragments, and mycotoxins. When this reaction goes beyond allergy, settling down the inflammatory response becomes first priority.
Quercetin is one of the tools I talk about in the PROTECT section of my book, Break The Mold. It’s one of the key nutrients given to animals to protect their cells in case they’re fed moldy feed.**
Nettles work in concert with extra quercetin to support a calm, quieted inflammatory response. Nettles contain quercetin, so it stands to reason that the combination enhances the desired effects.
From The Book
Here are some key points from my book, Break The Mold, so you can see how these PROTECT tools fit in.
This picture best describes the steps to recover your health after a toxic mold exposure.
The first solution is to AVOID mold!
AVOIDANCE means getting away from the mold.
FUNDAMENTALS involve specific foods and lifestyle factors that can greatly improve your ability to conquer mold.
PROTECT and REPAIR is accomplished with targeted nutrients to manage the toxic damage from mycotoxin exposure.
FIGHT means conquering fungal overgrowth in your body.
