Biotoxins are toxins that are created by living organisms. They can be acquired from the air, water, food or from insect bites.

Biotoxins can be classified by the type of critter that is emiting it.

Examples are:

Fungal mycotoxins

Microbial biotoxins

Plant biotoxins

Animal biotoxins.

Another method of categorizing biotoxins is by the effect they have.

Examples are:

Hemotoxins which destroy red blood cells, and are transmitted through the bloodstream. An organisms that producse hemotoxinsis the rattlesnake.

Necrotoxins which kill cells they encounter and slowly eat away the tissue. An example of an organism that possesses necrotoxins is the brown recluse spider.

There are a variety of living organisms that contain or emit biotoxins. Some of the more common biotoxin emiting organisms we run into as humans are:

Microbes

Mold in water damaged buildings (moldy buildings)

Ticks

Scorpians

Spiders

Snakes

Other citters known to have toxic bites

Fish/Seafood known to cause poisonings

Parasites

A person can be screened for biotoxin illness by using an online or in-office visual contrast sensitivity test (VCS).

Removal of Biotoxins

Most people are able to remove biotoxins from the circulation with the help of the immune system or the biotransformational system (largely in the liver). They are then excreted largely in the urine or feces. However some people don't have the correct immune response or their biotransformational system is not working up to par for various reasons. In these cases the biotoxins can remain in the body and cause chronic symptoms.
