Mold Threatens Homes Affected by Hurricane Sandy

Mold Threatens Homes Affected by Hurricane Sandy
Copyright 2012 Jacquelyn A Close

In an article published in the Staten Island Advance News, Rep. Michael Grimm (R/Staten Island/Brooklyn) said:  “A lot of people are, what's called, gutting the inside of their house down to the studs. They're taking off the sheet rock that was wet. They're taking out their insulation, and they're somewhat drying out the inside of their home. That is not enough."

Much of the salty sea water that inundated homes was also mixed with sewage, diesel fuel and other contaminants. Residents eager to get back to normal should resist the urge to hurry the process along, officials warned.

If mold spores are left and damp wooden walls are covered up with insulation and sheet rock, the dark, wet environment -- when heat is again added -- creates the perfect breeding ground for mold.

Mold growing unabated could fill spaces in between walls and cause health problems, cost thousands of dollars to remediate months later after residents signed off on their insurance claims and, in the worst-case scenario, lead to condemnation.  

Edward R Close, PhD, and Professional Engineer, has warned that FEMA does not and cannot provide sufficient information for residents to know whether it is safe to inhabit an environment that has been inundated with water. Close says there is a safe and effective option that is little understood today. This option is organic, eco-friendly, and provides the best remediation option because it prevents and eliminates spores in as little as 24 hours, works for both airborne and spores on surfaces, and it offers the only long-term residual effects Close has found in studies conducted over the past 10 years. Plus it smells good, a cinnamon and cloves smell that most find pleasing.

Mold-caused health problems typically show up as respiratory responses, initially. However, according to a number of MDs who are skilled in the science, mold may also be linked to Fibromyalgia, Epstein Barr, and a host of other auto-immune diseases, as well as some forms of impairment that lead to memory loss, panic, dependency, and brain chemistry alterations. Their work suggests a direct causal link and a high correlation between mold exposure and certain immune responses. See the works of Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker, Dr. James Schaller, Dr. Marvin Sponaugle, and Dr. Joe Brewer. There may be other doctors with training and experience in assisting those impacted by mold exposure. The author is familiar with the works of these four and they are in agreement that mold is a causative agent in these illnesses.

If you have been impacted by mold, there is good news. There are options for cleaning up your environment and for removing mold from your body. You have options. It is not a death sentence and you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars using the old remediation options that are limited in their ability and have many negative side effects. You can use the state of the art and less expensive option: Essential Oils. Essential Oils are what Ed Close, PhD, discovered will prevent and eliminate mold spores in buildings and it has long been know that essential oils are a great option for healing of body and mind. So, you can use oils to clean your home and your body, and save a lot of money over the cost of standard remediation and anti-fungals. They cost less and they are better for you.

Wishing you Joy and Vibrant Health!

Have You Been Affected By Mold Exposure?

Copyright 2012 Jacquelyn A Close

How many times have you woken up with a headache, stuffy nose, and aching all over?

Does this happen to you frequently?

If so, you may be one of the millions of people who are unknowingly being exposed to mold in your home. Chronic colds, flu, sinusitis, ear aches, headaches, itchy eyes, all of these can be the result of mold exposure.

According to Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker, about one-quarter of the population are genetically predisposed to be extremely sensitive to mold.

Studies completed by Johns Hopkins and Harvard Universities found that
50% of all buildings have mold. 
And where there was mold, there was a 
   50-100% increase in respiratory problems.
The Mayo Clinic
1 in 7 Americans suffers from acute fungal sinustis, 
   resulting from exposure to mold.

Dr. Shoemaker, Dr. James Shaller, Dr. Marvin Sponaugle, and Dr. Joseph Brewer have all said that their patients who suffer from various illnesses including Fibromyalgia, Chronic Lyme Disease, Chronic Fatigue, Epstein Barr, Substance Abuse, Depression, Neuropathy, and other chronic auto-immune illnesses are exacerbated by and may actually in some cases be caused by mold exposure. They are telling us that there is no hope of treating these patients successfully without getting rid of the mold in their environment. So, if you know someone with one of these types of diagnoses, they may never be able to get well until they address the mold in their homes and work places.And until very recently there was no option available that wasn't as detrimental to their health as the mold itself.

Scientists estimate that fibromyalgia affects 5 million Americans 18 or older. Between 80 and 90 percent of people diagnosed with fibromyalgia are women. However, men and children also can have the disorder. Most people are diagnosed during middle age.

Federal health authorities estimate that chronic fatigue syndrome affects 1 to 8 of every 1,000 Americans older than age 18. Women are affected about twice as often as men. Although the illness is most common in people 25 to 45 years old, chronic fatigue syndrome can attack people of all age groups, including children.

  According to the National Library of Medicine's MedlinePlus.

20 million people in the United States

suffer some form of depression.

In the United States, 43 percent of American children have at least 1 of 20 chronic health problems.

Are you one of the millions with chronic health problems?
Do you feel that no one understands what you are going through?
Do you wonder if anyone has ever gotten over the pain and out of the cycle of continuous illness?

I have.
I was one of those millions for over 20 years.
But today I am Pain Free and Allergy Free!!!
I had Fibromyalgia.
I had Chronic Sinusitis and Allergy symptoms.
I had Chronic Sciatica.
I had migraine headaches regularly, was hospitalized twice for them.
I had headaches every single day for years.
I was diagnosed with Cancer in 1985 and given less than 2 months to live...
and quite frankly there were days when I wanted to die, but...
I didn't.
I took over 500 aspirin every month just to try to keep the pain at a tolerable level.
And God, through His Infinite Wisdom, Love and Mercy sustained me and today...
And You can be too.

The Bible says:  My People Are Destroyed for a Lack of Knowledge.

If you are among the millions who are suffering and looking for answers, share your story with me. And stay tuned as I share my stories with you.

Thieves Oil Eliminates Mold in Buildings

Copyright 2012 Jacquelyn A Close

Dr. Ed Close has conducted more than 200 tests using Young Living Thieves Oil blend to prevent and eliminate mold in buildings and it has worked every single time. Using a protocol he designed, he has eliminated all species of mold found growing only inside buildings. In addition, he has shown in test after test performed to date that the essential oils also reduce all species of mold identified by nearly 99%. Following are the results of the first test performed.

Dr. Close was impressed by the dramatic results achieved from diffusing the essential oil blend for just 24 hours.Yet even more exciting was that when he returned 2 weeks later and tested the air again, the spore counts were even lower, and nothing had been done during that two weeks. This proved there was a residual effect from diffusing the essential oils - and that this treatment could be used as a preventative.

Next, Dr. Close began his now-famous PATIO TEST. Here is what happened...

Ten months after the initial treatment of the patio, you could still clearly see the outline of the area that had been cleaned with the Thieves Household Cleaner. That was truly amazing. No other treatment had ever shown such strong results in getting rid of and keeping mold away.


Thieves® essential oil blend was created based on research about four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. This proprietary essential oil blend was university tested for its cleansing abilities. It is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health.*

Thieves® oil blend is an integral ingredient in Thieves® Household Cleaner, Thieves® Spray, Thieves® Wipes, Thieves® Lozenges, Thieves® Dentarome Plus™ and Thieves® Dentarome Ultra™ toothpastes, and Thieves® Fresh Essence Plus™ Mouthwash.

My First Post

This blog will include information from Dr. Ed and Jacqui Close about their research into natural mold solutions that prevent and eliminate mold in buildings and are not toxic to the body.

We have pioneered the research into using essential oils for preventing and eliminating mold in buildings using 100% therapeutic grade essential oils that are all natural, 100% organic and pure enough to ingest - take internally. The only oils we recommend are produced by Young Living Essential Oils, the World Leader in Essential Oils, and the only oils in the United States that are safe and pure enough to ingest. All other companies say their oils are not for internal consumption or that they are for Aromatherapy Use Only -- meaning you should not take them orally or ingest them. Young Living oils are generally regarded as safe and FDA approved as Food Supplements meaning they can be taken orally and ingested regularly. That is why we only recommend the use of Young Living Essential Oils.
