EDTA for Mold, Mycotoxin, & Parasite Detox
By Dr. Michael W. Roth

Mold & Mycotoxins & Parasites


Question: Does EDTA detox mold, mycotoxins & parasites?

Answer: Yes


Mold is everywhere, in the air and in our food. The mold itself is usually not the problem; it’s the poisonous mycotoxins that it produces that causes issues and suppresses the immune system. The only way to heal yourself from the symptoms of mycotoxin exposure is to detox. To a lesser extent, reduce your mold exposure environmentally and nutritionally through a mold elimination diet. 

The two most common harmful mycotoxins are aflatoxin and ochratoxin, and exposure to either (or both) of these can trigger substantial health issues — from chronic allergies to cancer.

What’s more, if your body can’t remove these toxins on its own, they can slip into long-term storage to cause lasting or recurring damage.

Mold and fungus are strongly influenced by heavy metals. Read what Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, Ph.D has to say: “Toxic metals harm the cells of the body whereas the invading microbes (including mold) thrive in a heavy metal environment. Research by Ludwig, Voll, and others in Germany and by Omura and myself here in the US, show that microbes tend to set up their housekeeping in those body compartments that have the highest pollution with toxic metals.”

Mold’s best friends are heavy metals. Why? Because according to Clinical Microbiology Reviews, Wendy Myers, FDN-P, CHHC says that mold and parasites eat heavy metals, “Our body allows parasites and Candida (mold) to proliferate, because Candida and parasites eat toxic metals. You do have to bring down your metal load if you’re going to long term get rid of the parasites or candida,” Myers says. “Some parasites can eat five to six times their body weight in metals.”

When metals are detoxed, parasites can be released. “When you start detoxing metals, when you remove toxic metals and bring the level down a little bit, you start to strengthen your immune system. A lot of these metals do reduce immune system function. When you start reducing your metal load, your immune system works better and you can start killing off some of the parasites.”

The toxicity of our environment contributes to the toxicity in the body, including accumulated heavy metals, parasites, biofilm and molds.

Parasites are part of the balance in the declined ecosystem, however, some external factors cause the problem to be amplified. Myers says, “Wi-Fi increases the release of mycotoxins by 600 times.” The more parasites you have, the more mycotoxins are released. 

Mycotoxin is a Greek word meaning fungus or poison. The relationship between metals, molds and parasites is an if-then relationship.

Clinical Microbiology Reviews says, Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by microfungi that are capable of causing disease and death in humans and other animals. Because of their pharmacological activity, some mycotoxins or mycotoxin derivatives have found use as antibiotics, growth promotants, and other kinds of drugs; still others have been implicated as chemical warfare agents.”

She says recurrent Candida infections are sourced at toxic mercury levels. Infections follow the same pattern.

Conclusion:  EDTA IS a powerful heavy metal chelator and therefore would remove the source of mold, mycotoxin and parasitic proliferation.
