How Mold Affects Muscle Tissue with Hashimoto's with Jill Crista ND
There's a plethora of health problems associated with mold exposure, one of them no one talks about, which is mold diminishes our ability to maintain our muscle tissue. Since mold exposure symptoms are almost identical to the symptoms of Hashimoto's, mold symptoms can be hard to diagnose.
The design of your home significantly impacts the potential for mold growth. Breathable building materials and dehumidifiers will help a lot. However, you must stay vigilant because mold can creep up nearly anywhere.
About Dr. Jill CristaDr. Jill Crista ND is a naturopathic physician in southwest Wisconsin. Her practice focuses on taking on patients suffering from the effects of mold exposure and Lyme disease. She’s on a mission to educate the public about the dangers of water damage and mold to keep them and their families safe and healthy.
Mold is Everywhere, But it Doesn't Mean You Should Suffer From ExposureEven the most common molds can have negative health impacts. The factors behind how mold affects different people include the size of the dose, duration, and susceptibility. Even your genetic makeup and your nutrient intake are also factors.
Discovering mold in your home can be devastating. A proper mold inspector, remediation, and cleaning afterward are very expensive. Moving is seldom an option unless you have the financial means. But living with constant exposure will take its toll, especially for the ladies with Hashimoto's. There are steps you can take to help. From not storing cardboard in the cellar to building with specialized materials, you can make it harder for mold to take hold in the first place.
Mold’s Effects on Your HealthSince mold toxins are fat-soluble, they can travel nearly anywhere in the body. This can create a whole host of symptoms. For this reason, mold exposure can be challenging to diagnose correctly. Even anxiousness, ear-ringing, and pelvic pain can be a result. With so many possible effects, you and your doctor must discover how mold impacts your health.
Mold will even impact your muscles. Since many mold mycotoxins act as protein synthesis inhibitors, your muscles may not recover after they break down. That’s why mold exposure directly contributes to the loss of muscle mass. While all this can seem frightening, Dr. Crista shares some steps you can take immediately to get back on track.

Quotes“The toxins that come from mold in an indoor environment are biowarfare weapons.” [2:30]
“Mold has a very important job in nature which is to decompose dead, previously organic material. What do we build our houses with? Dead organic material.” [14:15]
“There’s a lot of things the liver is supposed to be doing. Those activities get gummed up when you’re exposed to mycotoxins.” [43:25]
“When you move a muscle you can damage it. That’s the whole idea of gaining muscle. As you break it down, it will build up bigger. If you have mold on board, you don’t get the repair part.” [48:14]

8 reasons why its important to prioritize your muscle tissue with Hashimoto's
Welcome to this week’s episode of Thyroid Strong as I spell out why it is so important to prioritize your muscle tissue with Hashimoto’s. Not only for the longevity of your life but to also live every day how you prefer, without injuries or stress responses dictating your lifestyle.
We all want to live longer and fuller lives, and one way to do that is by prioritizing your muscle tissue. Us Hashi ladies have to preserve, build, and feed our muscle tissue to help our thyroid, tighten our ligaments, and build quality tissue around the joints.
Prioritizing Muscle Tissue During your Workouts
Muscle is our metabolic engine and with hyperthyroidism, stimulating the muscle encourages thyroid hormone turnover, which we need! Muscle tissue also helps to stabilize the joints, and with ligament laxity, put down the pilates and pick up heavier weights to stimulate the muscles.
Muscle Tissue and Longevity of Life
The more we age, the more maintenance of our muscle tissue. If you don’t use it, you lose it. Life lesson, you don’t fall and break a hip. You break a hip and then fall so the more muscle tissue you have around the joint, the more longevity you have in your everyday life. Now, with Hashimoto’s, we need to focus on building quality muscle tissue with proper nutrition and recovery time.
