Topic: Brain and Gut Dysfunction with Fungal and Mycotoxin Exposure by Donald Dennis MD
A Gut Feeling - Atlanta, GA - March 2 - 6, 2016
The air we breathe is five times more important to our health than all treatment rendered by hospitals, doctors, and medication. The air we breathe is 2x more important to our health than our genetic code. Clean air is a leverage tool because it can be controlled. 60% of all preventable deaths are due to the conditions at home and work. Most fungal exposure occurs from the air and food. 20% of the population has genetic defects that cause 9000 times the normal fungal antigen inflammatory response and the inability to process fungal mycotoxins. The fungal antigen load causes systemic immune cellular damage and the mycotoxins can cause disabling systemic destruction, especially in the gut, brain, pituitary, and immune system. Candid has three cell wall structures that increase its virulence. A sugar receptor which causes it to undergo morphological change into an invasive hyphal form, a gluten site that has the same amino acid sequence a gluten which causes a Candida immune reaction when eating gluten, and a 1-3 beta Glucan cell wall structure common to all fungi so that air borne fungi activate the immune reaction to gut Candida to continue gut inflammation, food allergies, mal absorption, IBS symptoms, and immune suppression. When Candida reaches the pituitary, a pituitary Candida receptor activates the innate immune system, destroying the pituitary causing dysfunction of thyroid, cortisol, and HGH. A simple environmental and review of systems questionnaire and SDA agar mold plate TAP test of the patient’s clothes and nose can identify those likely to have mold illness. A structured testing and treatment approach can restore gut health and immunity, sinus function, and relieve the neurological symptoms of cognitive dysfunction, ataxia, tremors, and others to restore health to most of these patients.
1. Apply the provided simple intake form of environmental review of systems scored questions to identify likely mold related illness
2. Explain how to TAP test patients with SDA agar plates for clothes and nose swab for mold. Review mold Lab results, reduce fungal load in air and body.
3. Explain“Clean the nose” protocol.
4. Explain the“Clean the home and clothes” protocol
5. Apply knowledge to refer to environmental experts when necessary. The severely ill must first get into a safe place for any medical treatment to be effective.
6. Explain how to rule out sinuses as site of mycotoxins and fungal overgrowth with CT sinus scan & consult.
7. Explain that if the patient is seriously ill, evaluate the endocrine, neurological, immune system, and gut; and look for secondary infections caused by immune suppression like Lyme’s, Epstein Barr, CMV, Mycoplasma, heavy metals, hypothyroid.
