My Experience Getting Rid of Rash and Skin Conditions Related to Mold Exposure

My Personal Experience Getting Rid of Rash and Skin Conditions Related to Mold Exposure
by Jacquelyn A Close
Copyright July 14, 2014

About 3 years ago I was exposed to Stachybotrys and had an instant rash that covered my hands, arms, and face. My right eye was completely swollen shut in a matter of seconds. From that day and continuing for over 6 months I had a horrible rash on my hands. I used many things, including extra virgin olive oil, numerous creams and lotions, lots of essential oils, and even a topical steroid prescribed for me by a Dermatologist. Nothing seemed to help a lot, until I started using the Regenolone Cream from Young Living. That got the rash under control and my hands didn't hurt so much, or look so horrible.

A few months after being exposed to the Stachybotrys mold, I was bitten by a Brown Recluse spider on the vein in my neck, and there was a terrible big spot there, but the Young Living Purification oil blend got that under control, left no mark and no rotten skin, and I didn't even go to the hospital. Thank you Young Living! You saved me a lot of money and a lot of hassle with that one little oil.

Then, in November, 2012, I suffered from Kidney Failure which the doctors said was probably caused by a virus. I don't have diabetes and no history of heart disease or heart problems, which are the usual reasons for Kidney Failure. So the virus was the only thing they could identify as the reason my kidneys failed. They did say that it was likely that the mold exposure and the spider bite contributed to my body's inability to deal with the virus.  We have found a number of doctors who say kidney failure is or at least can be caused by mold exposure. That is the reason I bring these things up here.

With kidney failure and the subsequent dialysis, and eventually Peritoneal Dialysis, came a requirement to sterilize my hands many times a day. Sometimes I was washing my hands 5 or 6 times an hour with strong antibiotic solutions. This constant washing takes its toll on my hands. The rash or eczema (according to my PD nurse) that I had experienced when I had the mold exposure came back with a vengance. It was horrible. Waking me most nights with painful itching and a lot of discomfort. Not to mention the fact that my hands were an embarrassment.

I started using Young Living's Thieves Foaming Hand Soap and the Thieves Hand Purifier instead of other more toxic options as soon as I was free of constant oversight by medical professionals. However, the rash or eczema persisted even after I returned to using Young Living products. So I returned to using the usual and varied lotions, all the Young Living lotions, extra virgin olive, many essential oils, coconut oil, and even a $200 hydrocortizone cream from the dermatologist with no results. I remembered having had good results with Young Living's Regenolone cream and began using Regenolone Cream twice a day. After a week of doing that, my hands were noticeably better. Not completely well, but definitely better. 

So, for the past year my hands would get a little better from time to time, and then they would be worse again. The ugly, cracked, peeling, red, itchy, swollen and painful skin on my hands came back any time I went without the Regenolone Cream for even a few days. The itching would wake me up again at night. The red, cracked, peeling, crusty skin felt rough. I remember hearing one person with eczema say their hands felt like an alligator's skin. That was what my hands felt like. This made me self-conscious and terribly embarrassed. I didn't want anyone to see my hands.

Then we went to the Young Living Convention in June, 2014 and they released a lot of new products. I was drawn to one product in particular, the SheerLume.  Here is a picture of the bottle it comes in:




I purchased a bottle. After I got back home, I took pictures of my hands before I started using the SheerLume. I applied the SheerLume cream to my hands morning and evening for 7 days. Below are the before and after pictures of my results. The Before Pictures are on the left. After pictures on the right.

Before - Photos Taken July 2, 2014              After SheerLume - Photos Taken July 8, 2014



  
 





This is what both my hands looked like after using SheerLume morning and evening for just 7 days. I was astonished! Amazed! Thrilled! And they still look like this today and I have only used the SheerLume once in the past week.

I don't have to hide my hands any more.

Thank God for Young Living.

If you or someone you know has to wash your hands frequently, think of nurses, health care givers, kidney dialysis patients, etc., please share these photos with them. I hope the SheerLume will help you and them as much as it has helped me. I had lots of folks ask me was it eczema or a rash and I don't really know. The nurse said it was eczema, but neither of the doctors ever said what it was. So, I don't have a diagnosis. My feeling and belief is that if you have any kind of skin condition it would be worth trying a bottle of SheerLume to see if it can help you. It's worth trying. And I hope you will share your results with others too.

There was no greater thrill than having my husband touch my hands, and say:  "Honey, your hands are so soft and they look so beautiful again."

GET RID OF MOLD NATURALLY using Thieves Essential Oil


GET RID OF MOLD NATURALLY using THIEVES ESSENTIAL OIL
By Jacquelyn A Close

There are many natural options touted on the internet for getting rid of mold, but there is only one natural option currently available that has 3rd party independent testing proving that it works. That one option is the use of Young Living Essential Oils’ ThievesTM oil blend and Thieves Household Cleaner. This option was pioneered by Edward R Close, PhD, Professional Engineer, and founder of EJC Advantage, LLC. This option, discovered by Dr. Close, has been used throughout the world since 2005. The truly exciting beauty of this natural option for mold remediation is that it has worked every single time, when used in accordance with the protocol developed by Dr. Close. This website is dedicated to providing the most up to date information available on the use of Young Living Thieves Essential Oil for preventing and eliminating mold in buildings in as little as 24 hours.

Who is Edward R. Close?  Click here for more information:    http://www.ejcadvantage.com/p/about-our-founder.html

So how did this discovery come about?

Dr. Close had a client who purchased an apartment building that had been flooded. After tenants had been relocated, the apartment building had been vacant and more or less abandoned for several years. Mold had run rampant throughout the apartments. The new owner hired Dr. Close to do environmental testing to show that the apartments could meet safety requirements for occupancy, these tests were stipulated as part of the government loan process for converting the apartments to low-income housing. The tests required included testing for asbestos, lead, mold and a few other potential hazards.

The new owner had already begun renovations of the apartments, tearing out anything and everything that had mold growing on it or showed signs of water damage. Many of the apartments had walls that were taken down to the studs, and even some of the studs had been replaced due to water damage. All sources of excess moisture had been eliminated. A cleaning company from St. Louis had been through the apartments and wiped down everything with bleach water. Even after all this was done, when Dr. Close took air samples, the levels of mold spores found in some of the apartments were extremely high.

The cleaning company came back and did another complete round of cleaning with a cleaner that their supplier told them would take care of anything because it was used in hospital clean rooms. Samples were taken again, and once again the level of mold spores were extremely high.

Dr. Close suggested the cleaning company use a toxic industrial strength fungicide. They came back and stopped work because this was so toxic, no one could be in the space working while the fungicide was deployed. Again samples were taken, and while mold levels were slightly lower, they were still far above the levels found in the ambient outside air.

Dr. Close was talking with me, his wife, at breakfast one morning about the problem he was having with mold at this facility. He told me he didn’t know how to advise his client. They had done everything and considerably more than was normally recommended to get rid of the mold in these apartments and nothing was working.

I said:  Why don’t you ask them to let you do with a test with the essential oils? Look it says right here in this book that oils are antifungal. And we know these oils are safe enough to take internally, we take them on a regular basis and have been for over six years now.

He said:  I’m not going to suggest that my engineering clients use aromatherapy to get rid of mold. They would laugh me out of the country. I would lose my engineering license. We wouldn’t have a business any more. Is that what you want?

I said:  Just tell them you want to do a test and that you have an antifungal agent that is safe, but you don’t know whether it will work or not. Offer to do the test at no cost to them, if it doesn’t work. And only charge them for the laboratory analyses, if it does work.

He said:  I’m not going to suggest anything like this to my client, unless you can show me the Science!

So, I went to the library and I went online and looked up scientific documentation of the antifungal properties of essential oils, and I found a lot of it. You can find it too. Just do a search online for essential oil and antifungal. Most of the studies were done in the food industry or in laboratories. There was nothing specifically about using essential oils to get rid of mold in buildings, but there was ample proof that essential oils have antifungal properties. So, I printed everything out and brought him a stack of scientific papers about 2 feet high and handed them to him.

He looked through some of them, and said:  Okay, oils have antifungal properties, but none of these tell you how to get rid of mold in buildings using essential oils.

I said:  That’s why God has given this information to you. He is calling you to provide this knowledge for the world. This is His gift to His children, through you. We are God’s hands and feet, His arms and hands. He puts things in front of us and asks us to step up and help someone in a way that glorifies Him. Will you talk to the clients and ask them to let you do a test?

He said:  I don’t know how to do a test with essential oils. How am I supposed to get oils throughout these apartments? How much oil do I need? How long will it take?

I said:  I don’t know the answer to that, but you’re the engineer, you figure it out. I’ll pick the best oils to test. You figure out the rest.

So, he did. He took the equipment we had available, and the oils we had available, and he did some calculations and determined how long he would have to run a small cold-air diffuser in order to saturate the entire space in one apartment with enough essential oil mist to have some chance of impacting the mold in the air. He told the client, I’ve got another option to try. I don’t know if it will work, but if it doesn’t, I won’t charge you for it.

The client said:  Well, we’ve sunk a lot of money in this project and we still can’t rent the apartments. Nothing else has worked, but if you think there’s even a chance this might work, we’re willing to have you do it. From our perspective, it’s our ONLY option at this point.  And we’ve got nothing to lose.

So, the first test using essential oils to eliminate mold in buildings was run in November, 2005.  Samples were collected before and after diffusing the essential oils for 24 hours in one test apartment. The samples were sent to a 3rd party environmental laboratory for all testing. Here are the independently verified results:

THE 24 HOUR TEST





THE 48 HOUR TEST
This test was done in another location.





YOU HAVE A POWERFUL OPTION AVAILABLE…

Is additional research still needed? Yes. However, there have already been over 300 test cases personally performed by Dr. Ed Close. Thanks to his efforts, the first 3 case studies are available in a DVD. The first 20 Case Studies are available in a book. And since 2005, this option has already been used by pregnant and nursing mothers, hospitals, Neo-Natal Intensive Care Units, schools, nurses, and a growing number of medical doctors, as well as thousands of homeowners with children and pets, without negative side effects. And it has worked every single time. 

We do not know and cannot predict how a specific individual will respond to the essential oils because we are all unique creations of God. We have different body types, different blood types, different body chemistries, and what works for one person may not work the same way for another. However, we do know without question that the Close Protocol for preventing and eliminating mold in buildings is currently the best option available for homeowners and business owners, public officials, and anyone looking to address mold in buildings. It works. This has proven to be one of the safest, most effective means to address mold and fungi in buildings ever discovered.

If you are having health problems you think may be the result of mold exposure, then to eliminate mold from your body, and restore health, you must first eliminate mold from your environment to the extent possible. Why not choose a non-toxic, eco-friendly, life-supporting, God-created remedy that provides your body with the support it requires to return you to the State of Perfect Health intended for you by God from the first moment of creation?
