Symptoms of Sickness due to Mould Exposure

Continued exposure to mould in the home can lead to ill health or exacerbate existing health problems. Once you know what's making you sick getting well is so much easier.

Mould Exposure the Facts


Exposure to mould can and does affect people differently. Mould can enter into the human body through several different pathways. People are exposed to mould by eating contaminated foods; mould spores can enter into a person’s sinuses and lungs through normal respiration or breathing in mould contaminated buildings. Human hands touching mould contaminated surfaces and then touching other body parts, i.e. eyes, lips, nose etc… are documented as the direct cause of mould related allergies.

Mould Exposure and the Common Misdiagnoses 


Have you been diagnosed with:
-  Asthma
-  Sinus Infections
-  Fibromyalgia
-  Emphysema
-  Fatigue Syndrome

Asthma & Emphysema



With no warning, suddenly some people are diagnosed with Asthma. Why they have it, where it came from, and why inflicted so suddenly, no one knows. What happens in Emphysema and Asthma? Mould can damage the fragile walls of the lungs interfering with your ability to exhale or inhale. The fact is that mould is a living organism and that when introduced into the human body through ingestion or inhalation easily incubates and grows within the human body. People who have been diagnosed with both Asthma and Emphysema have reported to have fully recovered after being treated for mould exposure.

There is a strong relationship between Asthma and Sinusitis with some studies showing of up to 75% of Asthma patients develop Sinusitis. Sinusitis is the most common healthcare complaint, more common even than Arthritis.

Chronic Sinusitis

Exciting new research about the causes and treatment of Chronic Sinusitis indicates that it has always been assumed that Chronic Sinusitis is caused by a bacterial infection within the sinuses. Therefore patients have been treated with antibiotics to fight the infection. However, a recent study by the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, appears to refute this stating that, "Antibiotics don't help Chronic Sinusitis in the long term because they target bacteria, which are not usually the cause of Chronic Sinusitis."

In fact the aforementioned Mayo Clinic study demonstrated that 93% of all Chronic Sinusitis was caused by mould.

It is evident from these findings that the correct treatment of many of these respiratory conditions can be dependant on the elimination and control of allergens(mould/dust mite etc). Drimaster provides the number one solution to giving you back your healthy home.
