Knoxville is a beautiful place to live, but the frequent rain and warmth combine to make mold a serious issue. Incidents of Lyme disease have also escalated in recent years. These are hard conditions to diagnose, but at Knox Wellness Experience in Knoxville, TN, we’re pleased to offer a mold treatment and lyme treatment center that can help you get back to your energetic, healthy self. Learn more during a consultation with our professionals.
At Knox Wellness in Knoxville, TN, we test for and address longstanding mold in the body, which has been referred to as mold illness, mold toxicity, and CIRS (Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome). If you’ve experienced prolonged mold exposure in the past, mold and its toxins can remain in the body. This can significantly compromise healthy functioning and the immune system. Getting out of the moldy environment is the first step to recovering from mold illness.
Mold illness can cause a wide variety of symptoms:
– Fatigue and Weakness
– Brain fog, Cognitive & Concentration Difficulty, Confusion, Memory Problems
– Anxiety and Depression
– Muscle Aches, Joint Pains, Cramps
– Blurred Vision, Red Eyes, Light Sensitivity
– Vertigo and Lightheadedness
– Chronic Sinus Congestion, Shortness of Breath, Chronic Cough
– Chronic Nausea, Diarrhea, and Gastrointestinal Problems
– Increased Static Shock Sensations
– Multiple Chemical and/or Food Sensitivities
At Knox Wellness, we can help you rid the body of mold and its toxins through a combination of natural oral and/or IV therapies, in order to restore wellness and optimal functioning.
What Mold Can Do
Mold can grow in places we never see, like under the refrigerator or sink, behind the walls, and even in our floors. All it needs is a bit of moisture and enough heat. Mold is a type of fungus, so it thrives without light and loves our climate-controlled, indoor environments.
Mold provokes inflammation and immune system reactions and can cause low-level, chronic symptoms that destroy quality of life. Yet mold exposure frequently goes undiagnosed because the symptoms mimic many other types of allergies and illnesses. Some common symptoms of mold exposure include:
- Runny nose
- Itchy eyes
- Red eyes
- General malaise
- General aches and pains
Lyme disease is the most common tick-borne illness, caused by the bacterium B.burgdorferi. A tick bite is the most common cause of lyme disease, but some patients with lyme disease don’t ever recall a tick bite. It can also be transmitted through other insect bites.
It is important to treat suspected Lyme disease early, to avoid chronic persistence of Lyme, which can cause complications involving the joints, heart, and nervous system.
Lyme Disease has three stages:
1) Early localized
A red rash and flu-like symptoms often appear within a few weeks of a tick bite. This can enlarge over time and resemble a bull’s eye. The rash eventually goes away.
2) Early Disseminated
Joint pain and swelling often occur. Heart problems (palpitations, chest pain, shortness of breath, fainting, dizziness) and neurologic symptoms (headache, weakness, numbness, tingling) can also be present at this stage.
3) Late Disseminated
Arthritis and neurologic symptoms can become chronic and persistent.
At Knox Wellness in Knoxville, TN, we can assist you with Lyme testing and the development of a management plan for acute and/or chronic Lyme Disease. We use a variety of traditional and complementary therapies, including oral and IV infusion modalities, to help rid the body of Lyme and support the immune system for the long term.
The Problem of Lyme
As with mold, one of the issues in diagnosing Lyme disease is that the disease presents differently in different people and has symptoms in common with many other conditions.
The disease is most commonly spread by ticks, and while most people think they would be aware if they’ve been bitten by a tick, the reality isn’t so simple. Ticks in the larvae stage can be smaller than the fine tip of a graphite pencil, going unnoticed on an ankle or under the hair. When they finish feeding, they may simply drop off and disappear.
Some of the early symptoms of Lyme disease include:
- Muscle and joint aches
- Facial weakness
- General malaise
What Happens If You Don’t Do Something?
If left untreated, these symptoms can worsen and new symptoms will emerge. These can include undefined, body-wide pain, changes in personality and cognitive ability, irregular heart rhythms, depression, and pain and swelling in the large joints.
A Mold and Lyme Treatment Center
At Knox Wellness Experience, we know how tough it is to get a diagnosis. You may have seen multiple doctors and not received any satisfactory answers.
If you’re experiencing aches and pains that can’t be explained and won’t go away, or seem to perpetually have a cold, you could be suffering from an allergy to mold. If you find yourself with constant headaches and fatigue or joint pain, you could have Lyme disease.
Once you have a diagnosis for either of these difficult conditions, you can get effective treatment that will return you to your normal, healthy life. We’re committed to helping patients find the answers they need and the right treatment for these conditions.
