mask / unmask
Masking is a term used to describe how the body has become so used to being around toxins that it no longer responds with obvious symptoms. A good analogy to describe this phenomenon is a bucket of water. Your body in a clear state is like a clean bucket of water. Toxins are represented by a drop of ink. If your bucket of water is full of ink and murky, then one more drop won't make a difference. This is being masked. However, if the bucket of water is clear and you're unmasked, one drop of ink will create obvious symptoms. The way to unmask is to do a mold sabbatical.
MCS: Multiple Chemical Sensitivity

MT: Mystery Toxin

sabbatical / mold sabbatical
A period of about two weeks spent in a pristine location and with no moldy belongings in order to give the body a chance to unmask. A sabbatical is the first step to determining whether or not you have mold illness. After a sabbatical, entering moldy locations will likely produce symptoms.
