Can mold exposure cause thyroid problems? 

Mold triggers thyroid problems, by increasing inflammation in the body. When it comes to environmental causes of hypothyroidism, mold, and toxins are the two most common causes, which cause thyroid problems by increasing inflammation in the body. It is at this time that people have been prescribed Levothyroxine, the most common thyroid medication.

But the real problem which started this inflammation is never understood and the inflammation continues in these patients.

Our best understanding is that Hashimoto's disease is a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Genetics is basically the blueprint for your body, which determines a lot of how it functions. In order to help your body's genetic structure to get rid of that triggering factor, we need to identify which environmental causes of hypothyroidism are causing your body to react.

Things to get rid of mold toxins

To get rid of mold toxins, you have to clean your environment. So, here are a few things that you can follow. 


The first step is to bind these toxins in your body so that they don't affect your body's functions. Binders also make it easier for them to be detoxed from your body. As far as binders are concerned, there are several types available, including activated charcoal, zeolite clay, and pectin. It is generally recommended to take a GI detox supplement that combines all of these. It is important to remember that whenever you use binders, they will bind to everything.
