TOUCHED BY LYME: Coronavirus suggestions for mold patients
Several years ago, after my daughter finished up years of heavy-duty Lyme treatment, she found herself facing yet another challenge: mold toxicity.
At the time, her mold specialist insisted that she absolutely stay out of any building that hadn’t been specifically determined to be mold-free. Not for a few days or weeks, either. For the duration of mold treatment, which ended up being over a year.
It boiled down to this: No grocery stores, no movie theaters, no restaurants. If she absolutely had to go into a potentially unsafe building—like for a chiropractic appointment—she had to wear a face mask.
Sheltering in place
Luckily, her apartment tested clean for mold. So, she stayed home and learned such survival skills as online ordering of needed supplies—and how to keep from going nuts. (Teaching herself to crochet stuffed animals, taking classes online, streaming lots of videos and getting outside for safe exercise when she could.)
Sounds like COVID quarantining, doesn’t it?
Turns out, many mold patients are light years ahead of the rest of us, when it comes to protecting themselves from unhealthy exposures.
But they have questions and concerns about COVID-19, too.
Dr. Mary Ackerley, president of the International Society for Environmentally Acquired Illness (ISEAI), treats a lot of mold patients. She recently provided a video presentation to the Tucson Mold Support Group entitled “Coronavirus Suggestions for Mold Patients.”
