Sick in Southwest Florida? You May Have “Red Tide Sickness” – We Can Help!

If you live in the Southwest Florida area or surrounding areas that have been affected by Red Tide this year you know it has not been the typical “Red Tide” we have experienced in years past.

This massively oversized unrelenting bloom has merged with blue-green algae and stuck around for nearly a year now. The release from Lake Okachobee feeding it and growing it spurred on my our lack of drop in temperature this fall. The bloom has grown to nearly the size of the state of Connecticut.

It has hurt many local businesses and killed a good percentage of our wildlife population. It is affecting not only water quality but because it can become aerosolized and carried in the wind, has also altered our air quality. The toxins released from the Red Tide (Brevetoxin) and Blue Green Algae (Cyanotoxin and Myostine) have mixed with the organophosphates released from agricultural companies such as US Sugar (Glyphosate (Monsanto’s RoundUp) and other pesticides and herbicides as well).

These airborne particles are making humans as well as pets sick. Many people are visiting frustrated doctor after frustrated doctor who have so far been unable to diagnose the bizarre range of symptoms leaving their patients lacking hope and feeling terrible.

The most common symptoms are:



Frequent feelings of a head cold or flu

Headache pain

Itching eyes


Itchy face

Tinnitus (ringing ears)

Blurry Vision

Runny Nose

Watering eye (usually only one side)

Excess saliva

Glassy eyes

Sensitivity to light

Muscle twitches similar to restless leg syndrome

Memory problems

Brain fog

Digestion problems





and confusion

According to WINK NEWS (see video below start playing at 28 seconds), FAU researchers state that 100% of people tested so far have come back positive for Cyanotoxin (blue-green algae microcystin exposure) which lowers your immune system. 

Many are choosing to take the Cholinesterase RBC and Plasma blood test for pesticide toxicity (organophosphates) as well and are also coming up positive. It is vital to note that those reading the results on this test know that according to the CDC the lab values marked as acceptable are incorrect. Toxicity can present at just 40% of the top acceptable level.

So far, though there are a urine and blood test in a lab study setting for animals, we have found no local labs offering a Brevetoxin (red tide) blood test for humans.

    What is this cleanse? I’ve been sick for 2 years living less than 2 miles from the river :-( we’re selling our home and getting out it’s so bad.

    “According to NBC 2 news, 100% of people tested so far in Southwest Florida have come back positive for Cyanotoxin (blue-green algae exposure) which lowers your immune system.”

    I took part in that testing and was stunned to read this. Being someone who has to clarify and get the facts. I went looking for the NBC 2 report you mentioned. I couldn’t find it. So I reached out to them via email and included the link to your page.

    Per Kelly Monahan, “That is not accurate – there are no test results back yet.. Thanks for bringing this information to our attention.”

      Hi Mary, Thank you for following up. My apologies to both yourself and NBC News for the confusion. It was our error. It was quoted as such on WINK news, not NBC. The video with that statement in it is on the blog at the bottom. The statement is made at 28-second mark.

        He clearly states on the EAST Coast of Florida. Not SW Florida. I took part of the SW Florida testing and the results are not back yet.
