Taking Charge of Your Health


Hey guys, Dr. Josh Axe here with Ancient Medicine
Today. So excited you’re here with me. Today we’re going to be talking about black
mold symptoms and natural remedies to help cleanse your body of mold. And I’ll tell you what, mold toxicity is a
major issue for a lot of people, especially those that live in humid environments or have
moved into older homes. And you may not realize, there is a black
mold or mold in your air ducts, they can be in your basement, they can be growing almost
anywhere within your home. And so I’m going to talk about how to really
detox your body, and what are some of the biggest symptoms that you might be struggling
with a mold related problem. Also, hey, help me spread this message. There are so many people, hundreds of thousands
of people that have mold related symptoms that are causing major health issues in their
body. So take a minute right now, punch that share
button, click that like button, help me spread the word on how to use natural remedies, essential
oils, herbs, and foods as medicine. Let’s dive right in and talk about where does
black mold hide? Well, number one, in high-cellulose content
surfaces. So these are certain things within a home,
tend to be even sometimes dry wall, in between dry wall sheets or high-cellulose content
surfaces is where black mold can hide. And then air ducts is another big one. And then high moisture spots, where there’s
a lot of moisture. This is why people that live in Florida or
in the South or even anywhere in the North, but they tend to have more of these issues
with mold growing within the home. But again, if there’s a lot of moisture in
the home they can also hide as we talked about in the HVAC or air conditioning systems. High moisture spots is an area you can look
for black mold. And then also inside you. That’s right, inside your body is a place
where black mold or mold can hide and start to live and can cause major symptoms there
as well. In fact, I had a mentor who worked with, a
doctor now, who actually came down with mold poisoning and it gave him the symptoms of
chronic fatigue syndrome, was tired all the time, and he thought, “Hey, maybe I’ve just
been working too hard.” But it went on year, after year, after year,
and he realized mold was one of his issues along with heavy metal toxicity from when
he had his amalgam fillings removed. It was a combo with what he struggled with. But here’s some of the symptoms that you might
have, and if these symptoms are reoccurring month after month after month, it could be
as the result of having mold in your body or being exposed to mold on a regular basis. Number one is headaches. If you have a headache that you can’t seem
to pinpoint it, you know it’s not stress, maybe isn’t necessarily a migraine, but you
just get headaches really frequently, sort of a headache that’s just a dull pain around
your entire head, that could be due to mold symptoms. Chronic fatigue syndrome. If you are chronically tired every day, that
could be due to mold toxicity. Another big one is brain fog. I would if you have brain fog and fuzzy thinking
and poor memory on a regular basis, all the time, that can actually be a mold related
symptom. Also fever, if you tend to just get sick,
infections, and tired, and your temperature is raised on a regular basis, that can be
mold symptoms, eye irritation is a big one, sneezing, rashes, issues with mucus membranes,
your sort of always have mucus or irritated throat lining, chronic coughing on a regular
basis, and depression. And I mentioned another big one is brain fog,
if you have any of those symptoms that can be related to mold toxicity. And by the way, if you’ve ever known anybody
or you, yourself, are struggling with mold issues, let me know that right now here on
Facebook Live and YouTube Live, I would love to hear from you because there are hundreds
of thousands of people struggling with mold toxicity on a daily basis and they don’t know
it. So we’re going to jump into how to do a mold
cleanse on your body and the top natural remedies to do so. But we are live right now, help me spread
this message, take a minute right now, punch that share button, click that like button. Let’s teach the world how to use these natural
remedies to heal their body. Because here’s what happens, a lot of times
of when people have mold toxicity, they go into their medical doctor, and their doctor
will say, after a time they’ll say, “Okay, well, maybe your issue is . . . hey, here
is a medication for this. Here’s a medication to treat this other symptom. Hey, here’s a medication for headaches. Here’s a medication for fatigue.” And then they’ll say, “It’s all in your
head.” By the way, if you’ve ever had a doctor say
that to you or say that to someone you love, let me know that because that happens all
the time. Doctors say, “It’s all in your head.” It’s not in your head. There’s a reason why you’re experiencing some
chronic health issues. One of the number one cleansers for cleansing
mold from your body is bentonite clay. Now, bentonite clay, I believe, is typically
found in Montana, and there are other forms of clay that are fantastic. There are clays in France that are also very
effective and around the world. But clay in general, you can tell if you’ve
ever used it, it’s very sticky, imagine that going through your body, it will bind and
then stick to toxins such as mold in your body, helping detoxify your system. So actually doing a cleanse when you’re
drink a lot of water, doing bentonite clay, and then even doing extra fiber, let’s say
acacia fiber or a certain type of psyllium seed on a regular basis, that can actually
help really cleanse your body. Now bentonite clay, you wouldn’t want to do
that for over a month in terms of a cleanse because it will really start to, can start
to back you up and give you constipation if you do it too long. But overall bentonite clay is a great natural
cleanser of the body especially when it comes to mold. Another one is raw garlic. So we have a combination here where bentonite
clay can bind to things, raw garlic will actually kill off bad yeast and candida and bad types
of funguses and molds that get within your body there as well. Raw garlic contains a compound called allicin,
which actually is a potent, natural antibacterial, antifungal, so it can help kill funguses in
the body and then similarly in the mold family there as well. Activated charcoal will actually work very
similar to bentonite clay to where it binds the toxins. When somebody comes down with alcohol poisoning,
this is what the hospitals would give them. And historically they give them charcoal because
charcoal will bind to alcohol, bind to all toxins, and help get those out of the body
as well. But similar to bentonite clay, even more so,
charcoal you’d only want to do for short periods of time because they actually bind to minerals
in your body over time and can cause constipation long-term. So charcoal here and there, once a week, or
for a month-long cleanse you can do, but you wouldn’t want to do it long-term, every day. Oregano. Oil of oregano is one of my favorite natural
anti-fungal. Oregano is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral,
anti-parasitic. It is one of the most powerful, natural bug
killers out there today. So doing oil of oregano, you could do this
as part of a one week to a one month total cleanse. Again, this is actually a very strong herb
or an oil, so you wouldn’t want to do it over too a long period of time because it can actually
start to irritate your mucous membranes and your stomach over time if you’re doing the
oil. If you’re just doing the leaf on a daily basis,
let’s say a teaspoon a day or a teaspoon three times a day, you’d be fine. But as an oil, doing it in small amounts is
very, very powerful at actually killing off funguses within your body. Green juices. So now if you’re going to do a cleanse, what
I recommend is doing a cleanse where you do bone broth, veggie juice, and herbal teas. You might do an oregano tea, you might do
a Pau d’Arco tea as well. But green juice, this isn’t carrot juice
or beet juice or fruit juice. This is green juices, it’s cucumber and celery,
and then lots of greens, it’s kale, it’s spinach. Doing herbs like ginger and turmeric, lemons
and limes, even wheat grass juice, but doing really green, a very potent green juice with
no sugar at all, very powerful at cleansing and alkalizing your body, really creating
an environment that mold can’t thrive in. So think about this when it comes to mold,
typically it likes to grow in a warm, damp environment. Let’s say, and again Florida’s a prime example,
a basement where an area in the dark, in Florida, very moist, very warm, that’s where it likes
to grow. There’s also certain pHs it likes to grow
in. It likes to grow on certain things, we mentioned
cellulose earlier, certain types of surfaces, same thing, in your body mold or funguses
or yeast and candida for that matter like to grow in a damp environment. That’s why in Chinese medicine they recommend
doing things that dry up dampness, is the key to getting rid of mold and candida in
the body. So again, green juices can be beneficial. Sugar is one of the dampest causing foods
out there, and will feed fungus, mold and candida. So getting all of the excess sugar out of
the body. The good news about cinnamon is, cinnamon
is known as a warming herb Chinese medicine. So actually it can help the body in certain
regards, there as well, whereas candida and funguses like to grow in a very damp environment. Cinnamon is mildly drying which is good. It’s also warming, and also it helps balance
out blood sugar levels. Now, again here is one of the keys to getting
rid of mold, is doing a bone broth and herbal tea cleanse. I would drink three things. I would do this for a week. I would only consume bone broth, herbal tea,
and green juices during the day, and then at night you could do a piece of organic meat
and vegetables, sautéed in coconut oil. Just for all day drink bone broth, herbal
tea, green juice, and then at night do a meal. If you do that cleanse, I’m telling you,
you will kill off mold very fast, you’ll see radical changes in your health. And this is good as well for getting rid of
candida very, very quickly, not just mold and fungal issues. Now fix a moisture source. So again, if you know that you have a . . . I
would have somebody check your HVAC system, or your house. If you believe that you might have mold toxicity,
you can actually have mold inspectors come and test your entire home, I would do that. Also throw or get rid of any moldy items. In fact, in the Bible it talks about, if you
have mold in your home and you can’t get rid of it, burn it down or specifically in your
tent burn it down because they knew in the Bible and historically that mold was so damaging
to your health and body. Tea tree oil is a great essential oil that
has antifungal properties. Rubbing tea tree oils on different areas of
body can be beneficial. In fact, my mom who had a toenail fungus for
years, she loves when I talk about that, but she did a mixture of oregano oil and tea tree
oil on her toe which killed off a fungus, which again is in that family of mold. Baking soda being very, very alkaline, and
that is acidic, getting in more of that alkaline environment with baking soda and green juices
can help get rid of mold out of your system. Vinegar, cleaning your home with vinegar and
tea tree oil together, your showers or shower curtains, or different things that may have
mold build up is a good blend to do. Grapefruit seed extract is a good supplement
to take. Hydrogen peroxide is beneficial because mold
cannot live in this oxygenated environment, so hydrogen peroxide, another thing you can
do are hydrogen peroxide, vinegar, tea tree oil, clean different areas of your home with
that. Really another tip here and getting rid of
mold from your home is keeping humidity levels low, having drier air in your home is also
beneficial there as well. So here’s some tips that you can follow. Number one, cleansing your body. Bentonite clay is fantastic, raw garlic, activated
charcoal, oregano, green juices, sugar, cinnamon, doing a bone broth, herbal tea cleanse. And by the way, if you’ve ever used any
of these and saw results with getting rid of mold in your body, maybe some of the symptoms
like brain fog, any issues of candida, let me know that right now on Facebook Live and
YouTube Live. I’d love to hear the results you’ve seen with
doing any of these different remedies here as well. Remember, cleanse your home with some of these
natural remedies such as vinegar, tea tree oil, or hydrogen peroxide. If you do this, you can get rid of mold for
good. Well, guys I hope you’ve enjoyed this live

  1. BEDS ARE BIG SOURCE OF MOLD ILLNESSES. SPECIALLY ALL FOAM BEDS. ESPECIALLY WITH MATRESS ENCASEMENTS. BEDS NEEDS TO BREATHE! F THE VOID WARRANTY! CHECK YOUR HOMES!

  2. We live in a house with no insulation and slate rock walls that have b!lack mood and also on our windows. We can't afford t move or replace windows. I cough all the time.
    .

  3. Guys I have been terribly fatigued for 3 months . I feel like I'm dying did test no cancer 100 percent healthy . Doctors said that I Am depressed and prescribed me medicine . I felt like something was wrong so I didn't take it . Checked my air ducts black mold everywhere . I live in Florida . Going to pay to get my ducts cleaned with tea tree oil , I will let you know how I feel a month from now

  4. I have mold so bad here it's fully in the bathroom ceiling it's all black and stinky up there and yes I'm in Florida. I'm so sick and can't hardly walk without getting out of breath and no one can figure out why. I've had all the tests. I'm handicapped and get sick when I am in the bathroom for any amount of time. What's up there is a killer. I am going from healthy and active to so sick and out of breath I can't move. All tests are negative. I now have inner trembling, a shaking feeling inside my body. I'm dying.

  5. Defiantly suffering from mold, just got a culture and received the results. I still feel unfocused, a bit crazy, I seem to feel better with excessive exercise, very challenging to deal with other people. A lot of the above-mentioned foods and supplements I actually consume regularly as I've had short term relief. Is there anything else……

  6. Thank you very much, I just moved out of a rental for mold allergies. Started anti biotics and will use these remedies too cause I'm still not feeling right. Almost feel like I'm dying when my blood shows I'm perfectly healthy

  7. As others have said, I had these symptoms. The two doctors said test results were negative. As it turned out I was living with black mold for at least seven years. I moved out, but had to leave everything I could not wash (furniture, books, important documents you get the idea) as the mold spores get into the pores. I lost thousands of dollars.

    Still, until now, I had no clue of how to restore myself. Its thee years since I moved and still I feel drained and my mind doesn't remember information.

  8. I started feelin better when I started taking organic green juice powder. I also get hives in spring from mold and I noticed the day after I took a detox of dandelion/stinging nettle/ green tea. I didn't have hive the next day but they came back three days later. I started getting hives and panic attacks, breathing problems, bronchitis and flu like symptoms all at the same time. They gave me the regular antibiotics and after a month I wasn't better. So they said it was all in my head and I needed to be on SSRIs. The sssris made my anxiety worse. Two weeks after getting rid of all meds I woke up to my laundry room ceiling falling in from water build up and black mold all over. After it dried and I bleached the area and fixed the roof I felt better. Then I had several water leaks from different parts of the house and the crawlspace is to small for an adult to fit under. I'm stuck in this house for another 15 years and I bought it before the bubble popped at 23. First time home buyers association is a joke they passed that inspection. That house was sinking into the ground and had a bad roof yet a professional inspector didn't notice.

  9. Hi Dr. Axe, Thanks so much for this video. I inhaled some mold and dust while raking up leaves and got a severe respiratory infection. I wanted to find out how to deal with it and this was very helpful. Thanks

  10. Dr Axe has been such a blessing to me . I have learn so much from him and all the free information that he provides. Wonderful person and caring

  11. Can someone vouch for this? Im at point where I get mini fevers everyday and im not rich enough to remove the mold in my attic

  12. I live in a rental where i have all symptoms..me and my cats are sick..i can't stay here but have no money to move…

  13. Could you use lavender oil in the diffuser. I put a few drops in my car ducts to kill off mould bacteria. It smells pleasant too.

  14. Guys, if you can’t afford to move buy an AIR PURIFIER , that absorbs mold. Several hundred dollars, but these things were even used during the CA wildfires.

  15. Medical doctors are a waste of space, if they can’t make a pharmaceutical bonus they’re not interested

  16. partment i cant catch my breath! i was sleepy but i didnt want to sleep because i had invited over some company over for dinner but i could not stay awake i was feeling like if i was drunk i was talking and i was slurring like talking in slow motion and i could hear myself. the next day my daughter asked mom were you drunk yesterday? i ssaid no why she says because you were talking funny and then you just fell asleep. our eyes are very irritated eeveryday i don tknow but i think we are being exposed with black mold but i dont know how to find out?

  17. Thank you Dr.
    Talking about mold yesterday.
    I was thinking a remedy for it
    Today your advice is interesting.

  18. Great information. In the future, could you please not block the board with your body so I can screenshot it for future reference? Thanks!

  19. I had a very itchy rash and I went to the M.D.. He told me I had folicutoritis. I said, "what! I am allergic to my hair follicles?" He said "yes." Last time I trusted an MD. I went to the chiropractor. Through Applied Kinesiology, he discovered I picked up a parasite. He gave me a natural medication. 2 days later, no more rash!

  20. My old neighbor had me paranoid about this and she claimed the landlord was trying to kill her then she went to a mental hospital lol

  21. Tea tree oil not only kills mold but also kills mold spores!!! Spores in the air that you breath. Bleach does not kill the spores so mold regrows.

  22. I was just diagnosed with mold toxicity. The gliotoxin is 8 times what it should be. I have been told over the years by several doctors that they have no idea what to do with me anymore. I went to the Cleveland Clinic one year ago today and was diagnosed a couple of weeks ago. I am thrilled to finally find out what's been going on for the last 15 years. Everything finally makes sense. Thank you for educating and helping others heal naturally.

  23. Thank you so much, I will try some of these. Darn mold so bad in our rental, it smelly and ugly.

  24. I have all of the above and absolutely no way to leave. My landlord is not dealing with the stachybotrys at all and just tries to conceal it from people trying to get more money out of them.

  25. I live in South Africa and have had to loose my deposit because I have had to move due to mold in the house I was renting, 11 months later I was attacked by mold mites, lost everything I had to get rid of carpets, furniture, bed ect, cloths bedding been so traumatic… I am under the doctors advice and I am on medication, felt tired and could not understand why, cough, dry throat, as well and just feeling ill. It's not in your mind, they have hair folicules that prick like a pin and lay eggs under your skin. We are extremely clean, so it's nothing to do with dirt it's flippen mold in walls and it just spreads as do the mites

  26. I noticed spores on my can’t believe it’s not butter after I ate it , now my throat is ticklish like it’s growing….is that possible?

  27. Dr. Axe are you still doing studies on black mold poisoning?? I believe I have severe mold poisoning I have been to at least 20 different doctors who look at me like crazy drug test tell me absolutely nothing for me I also believe my two dogs definitely have it as well… can you please tell me what type of dr I should see.. I need help I think it’s killing me

  28. I have mold toxicity & allergies to mold. My house has had a major problem with mold for all 26 years of the house existing. The builders had to redo the siding twice & never did anything about the mold. I wish I could find a lawyer that could help. Hoping that I can find a home to recover from the mold & my other health issues that are made worse by the mold. It’s truly a nightmare!!!

  29. My sons and I live in a unit with water leaks and when it rains, rains comes thru the ceiling causing a hole to form. There were water spots upon our moving in 2014 now we are seeing the same spots become damp and expand in size. Mold is forming throughout the place, including black mold. All of those symptoms mentioned by you, we are experiencing constantly but we have nowhere else to go. I just pray that we are able to leave soon.

  30. How do you do a metal detox? Is it pointless for me to do it, after having fillings & if my husband works in HVAC?

  31. I had mold poisoning. I was having lung problems and a heavy smoker. I was also very fatigued and sick. A Lung biopsy showed live black mold growing in my lung tissue. My body was failing fast and nothing helped. I was on oxygen 24/7 for two years. At 45 years old I told my Doctor I was dying while Doctors told me I was whining and depressed. That was over 10 years ago and low and behold a lung biopsy found the BLACK MOLD Demon! We had rented a trailer in North Carolina that had just been remodelled with new paint and carpeting. That trailer had been in flooding during a hurricane. The trailer had been condemned because of the flooding. The trailer was sold as alot of 9 other trailers to be scrapped. Our trailer was illegally remodeled and rented to us. I began having problems within 3 months of moving in. The issues were over and over blamed on my smoking. I suffered for two years and feeling crazy no one was helping me. Finally a biopsy showed no cancer but black mold growing in my lungs. Our trailer was inspected by the health department. They found mold growing within the dry wall and flooring. It was also in the heater and aircondioning duck work and vents. The trailers VIN# search discovered the trailer had previously been condemned and illegally rented. While in the hospital at Duke our trailer was again condemned and my husband had 3 hours to remove our belongings and pad locked by the Dept. of Health unfit for living. 10 years later I am off oxygen and free from the toxicity of mold. Our landlord was as involved with a Mexican gang and also illegally in the USA. He fled prosecution and within days had changed his name again and never held responsible or accountable for two years of pain and suffering I ensured. I was lucky it did not kill me and Yes mold can kill you! Today I am self educated about MOLD! Your video is excellent and very informative. Many Thanks!

  32. Is there a test that you can do on yourself to see if you have mold in your body? So you will know without just going by these symptoms.

  33. I definitely appreciate your informative videos! My alternative Doctor feels that I have Black mold toxicity, and is having me tested. My concern is that Ive seen black mold and dust for years where I work. The owner finally had a janitorial service do a quick clean up ONLY on the rafters where It was collecting. This is a Car dealership that has been around for 51 years in the same spot/ location, and it’s rare that we see anyone cleaning. I know that my symptoms (coughing, sinus pressure and eye irritation ect ) are elevated almost as soon as I walk into the building, and when I leave, I feel better.

    I’m thinking that the owner should be responsible to check for mold. How would I go about making sure this is done?

  34. My dad,myself and my dog seemed to be plagued by same strange new symptoms my dad had many health problems and this mold compromised his immune system and i believe he passed away bc his body was struggling, then my dog got sicker snd myself and now we are trying to get out of this house.

  35. Its all in my head……is what my doc told me after i told him i get a headache and shaky if i dont eat breakfast (Im T2). No longer going to doctor a**hole.

  36. I send out mucous on regular basis, occasional headache and have had complete black out on two occasions.
    The headache use to be excruciating at heights, but had not noticed headache at night for the past one year.

  37. I'm dealin with a half a lung natural healin I was involved in full back mold now I hav in lung&stomach I can't afford nothin I love garlic I eat eat always

  38. I am by trade a geotechical driller which utilizes bentonite pellets on a daily basis. From my experience it did indeed make a large impact on my health via dealing with bentonite every day. After leaving the industry for a short period of time I have since noticed these symptoms

  39. I found that fungus was growing in my sinuses after removing a fair amount of black mold from my grandmothers home. It was causing horrible sinus breath too.
    I started using high quality EVO in my NielMed sinus rinse squeeze bottle. About a Tbs or so. I also began to diffuse tea tree oil and inhale through my nose. I also learned that mycotoxins can reproduce in your blood if your PH becomes too acidic so I started consuming apple cider vinegar and backed off all refined sugars and high carb foods. Finally about 3 to 4 months later, the headaches and chronic fatigue finally went away.

  40. I tell my lil sister to ask Dr to do a: micro toxic urine analysts to see if there are any toxins in her body my mamas house is full of it I have cleaned it with clorox pure, replacing all wood contaminated. I eat a piece of raw garlic a day before I eat anything: recommended-3 crushed garlic fresh chopped, 1 tbsp of honey & drink it daily. Oregano is great

  41. I havent put all my problems together until recently that they might all be from one source and I thought I had lyme disease but I havent felt entirety sure, but now im thinking that mycotoxicity is the true culprit as I dont have all the lyme disease symptoms, but I do have most of the main mycotoxin illness symptoms.
    And I do have one little spot in the basement where it stays the most damp, but its not soggy nor doesnt stay damp continuously.
    Im trying to get on top of clearing the spot with antifungal substances and putting a dehydrator near there.
    I take a lot of antimicrobial herbs and immune system boosting supplements, so it may why I am not worse off healthwise, but im starting to get worse to where im so fatigued all the time and have bad headaches and weird muscle aches.
    Thanks for helpful presentation.

  42. I have been going through hell I finally figured it out because I do commercial construction and I noticed when I get around water cuz I was doing a exploratory piping that affected me more than I started getting lesions all over my body when I get out of the shower so I got my house tested for toxic mold I got it came back terrible and the doctor still treat me like s*** my liver wasn't functioning right I'm wasting away to nothing I make myself and force myself to eat and work out now I'm always hungry no matter how much I eat I always skinny I'll just get bloated for a couple days and then it goes right away it's a nightmare

  43. I have all those problems I have this problem for years. Now mold grow in my apartment and they not fix nothing. Am going to try all this thanks

  44. I am currently in treatment for Mold Sickness- would love to have one website that covers around the world providing resources for all those exposed to be able to ask questions and have resources to be able to recover.

  45. 6pound ovarian cyst was not in my head! Was bigger than the Drs. Hand. I was grateful for the Lady Dr. found
    It
    but MAD as hell at the Drs. Who just brushed me off with a script for head Drugs,

  46. Can diatomaceous clay work as effectively as benonite? Thank you so much for posting this Dr. Axe, as family is in Florida right now and experiencing these things

  47. Excellent suggestions, but not sure with the clay. Oil industries use it to soak up spills. It's also a cat litter. Sprinkling around a moldy area may help, but careful not to breathe it in. I do most of these. Great work.😀

  48. Hello! I’ve been sick for 2 months! I’m a truck driver who’s 2019 Freightliner Cascadia was taken over by Mold! It’s been raining all over the country everyday for months now. I’m ruined! Please help me! I’m from Idaho Falls, Idaho. I’m now trapped in Dickinson, ND At the Hampton Inn. 208-201-8692. Thnx! Christopher Royal Johnson

  49. Great video. I would love to see scientific publications that prove that sugar dampens the body…that just doesn't make any sense at all to me.

  50. I was exposed to black mold. At the time I had no idea it was the mold. My symptoms was coughing, fever, sore throat, couldn't swollow, was also weak, feeling anxious was on the 3rd or 4th day. I had also lost control of my bowels. I was taken to the hospital. And was admitted in the hospital in I.C.U for 3 days before being transferred to a regular room. I spent a total of 7 days. Was diagnosed with pneumonia, elevated white cells, bacterial infection, lyrngitis, sepsis. I was 20 minutes away from death. It is the most horrible feeling. the doctor inserted a pick line into my chest to the heart. Was given 7 to 10 different antibiotics. If anyone suspects please check your place for even leaks behind the drywall pipes leak there to that was my case. Due to it I have many other illnesses like Asma auto immune disease. I hope my story will help someone.
