Mold/Biotoxin Illness and Autism: Focus on Endocrine Hormonal Imbalance, Immune Dysregulation, and Recovering the Pituitary systemic Axis

Patients prone to developing CIRS Mold/Biotoxin illness fail to mount an effective immune response to biotoxins. When this happens, the innate immune system shows signs of continuous but ineffective activation.

Fatigue, often due to low or dysregulated cortisol and ACTH, and poor conversion of the thyroid hormones T4 to T3. Pain – due to inflammation and reduced endorphin production is seen. Chronic sleep disorders with non-restful, nonrestorative sleep – at least in part due to low melatonin levels, Appetite swings, particularly increased appetite, leading to weight gain,Loss of control of regulation of body temperature, Imbalanced sex hormones, and approximately 60% have low ADH / imbalanced osmolality. Dysregulated inflammation compounds called cytokines are also seen due to a loss of inflammatory regulation.There is increased intestinal permeability (aka leaky gut) due to increased space between intestinal gap junctions. This can then lead to development of antibodies to gluten / gluten intolerance in the absence of Celiac disease. Microbes can overgrow in an inflammed milieu.


Dr Dashore will discuss the hormonal imbalances in depth, growth issues seen, immune dysregulation mechanisms and best all natural plant-based treatment options along with conventional alternatives.
