My mother is 78 and was given 2 years to live 5 years ago. She was an x ray tech for 30 years. Thanks to the chemicals involved in the processing of x ray films, my mothers lungs look like the lungs of a 50 year smoker. During her work, my mother suffered headaches. After she retired, she lead a healthy life, eating well and walking everyday. 6 years ago she began to show signs of pneumonia. Over and over again doctors asked her how long she smoked. "Never." she would reply. Finally, a pulmonary doctor in Panama City Florida asked her what she did for a living. He knew the cause as soon as she answered.
My mother loved to care for people, that is why she dedicated her life to the medical field. If you know of anyone who is or was an x ray tech, please show them this. LRussellAdshade at gmail is where I can be reached.

Hi,

I purchased Dusty's Song through your link but was unable to download it. There was an error message saying no file was available for download.

I just lost a beloved friend to cancer and happened across your site on petloss. I was so moved that I wanted to download the song to help in my grieving.

Please help.

Mark West

Admin reply: I just emailed the song to you and believe I have the download link fixed - if you wouldn't mind trying it again and let me know if it's working now, I'd really appreciate it! So sorry for the inconvenience...!

I want to give the following items to someone who needs them.

I have been sickened by "fragrances" for all of my life! I don't like "stink" any better than anyone else, but CHEMICALS to cover up stench, cause me to cough and often "FIGHT" to simply "BREATHE"!!!... this is "REAL"!!! I don't POISON your air, so why do you assume it's ok to POISON mine???

There is a newer study/article titled: "Volatile Emissions from Common Consumer Products" by Dr Anne Steinemann March 2015.

The focus in on various consumer products and includes some labeled as "Fragrance-Free" and "Green".

It's well worth reading, explaining measured VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds) from various typically used products. It also identifies some "toxic/hazardous" chemicals which are legally excluded from product labels!

Hello. I was chemically injured 7 years ago (new house materials). I recovered 90% once, but re-injured after buying a new piece of furniture that reeked of chemicals. I nearly recovered again, and was exposed to mold while living with a friend. It's been difficult to recover this time around. Does anyone live in my area for mutual support/friendship? I just started feeling as if I can begin exercising, but prior, I've just been in bed on I-pad all day trying to occupy my mind so I don't go crazy. :o I can walk around the block but am constantly being "hit" in the face with my neighbors scented laundry products. I I've got a strong faith centered life. Anyway, I'm feeling positive and hopeful for another recovery. :D I hope someone male or female gets in touch with me.

Hi-I just want to thank you for your research. Several friends, all women surprisingly, have developed sudden allergic reactions to basic chemical compounds that they have personal use of such as perfumes, cleaning products and some medications. Also, surprisingly, there seems to be little research on non organic causes of these allergies. We read the part about what constant contact can cause in some people. I don't understand why the Federal government is not doing research into this as baby boomers get older and seem to be developing such reactions as headaches, migraines, nausea and vomiting. Can you recommend anyone-university, private foundation, that is doing more research on this?

My husband has an agressive form of cancer. The scriptures on faith have been uplifting us. I am pleased to report that Jesus has healed my husband. I just want to give Him all the glory and honor. Jesus has done so much for us. He is meeting our every need! Jesus is using what satan meant for evil and has turned it into good. My faith in Jesus has increased a hundred fold. The Word of God IS all truth! I have such peace and confidence from His Holy Spirit that I want to tell everybody about what Jesus is doing for us. Thank you, Lord Jesus!

As someone who's been in the religious system, it makes me want to cry out when I see someone else has been delivered from it all!

Thank you for your testimony :) You are by no means alone either. There are thousands of people who are being called, even as we speak, and who are choosing to blindly trust in God for life, rather than themselves. Choosing to not earn salvation, to not earn blessings, and believe that only God can give these, and that He WILL give them freely, can only be believed by setting our eyes on the sacrifice of Christ Jesus - the narrow gate, to the kingdom of heaven.

For what Satan intended for evil, God is turning into good. Religion has trapped the Church in a bondage for so long, but it has FINALLY started. The wolves came and scattered us, just as was prophesied. But now, these dead churches will become rallying points for the return of the only way, the truth, and the life. Our Lord Jesus Christ!

I read the message on this website and the scriptures as well. My husband and I have had a really hard year my husband is in the military and has been deployed over seas this year and a lot has happened. I found out that I was pregnant two weeks after he left it was very scary for me. I didn't know how I was going to have a baby without my husband here. It took a little while for both of us to excited about it but with ultrasounds and baby talk we were starting to get very excited. I told everyone in the family that I was expecting at Christmas time and then bad news came I miscarried at fifteen weeks. It was so hard but I trust in the Lord to get me through it. I am doing better now. I recently went to the doctor last week for some test and I am praying that they come back negative. I am putting all my faith and trusting in God that everything will be ok please pray for me and my husband as we go through this hard time as a couple.

Hi, I suffer from MCS and found your page. After battling it for several years I began to make my own soap and lotion. After being laid off in January and having difficulty finding a job due to the MCS disability I decided to create my own and have begun to sell my soap and lotion. Hope it is okay to share this information here, but hopefully it might help someone else.

My products are all natural and contain no fragrance. A few contain essential oils, which are different. Before they are made available to customers I test the items, if I don't have any reaction then they are added to my e-store for sale. Just trying to help others, and if there is a way to share this information with others it would help us both.

My website is mcnotions dot net

In response to "Conversion from Catholicism" by Jacque:
My family is Scott-Irish and had been faithful Catholics. My parents grew angry with the Church, with God, and with each other, so before I reached the age of 12, they divorced and my family no longer participated in any faith or worship. I felt hurt and abandoned. I blamed God. As I matured, my hurt turned to anger, then hatred. I lived my life rebelling against God and His commandments. I didn't teach my children moral values. They are in their 30's and still confused about religion. God is not the author of confusion. I am tired of the confusion and deceit. I am tired of pretending I know it all. I want peace. I relinquished control of my life to God. The Paraclete Jesus promised to send us is leading my every thought, word, and action. God is real! He loves us, he never quit being faithful to us. I returned home to the Catholic Church. I pray constantly to ask God's will. My motto is, "Not my will, but Thy will be done." The Catholic Church has withstood turmoil. Dissidents try to get their way in the Church. People accept what they hear about the Church without verifying the facts. Jacque is angry about Catholics praying to Mary. I love Mary because of her humility and unconditional love. I honor her. I respect her advice. This world needs motherly love! Ignoring Mary is a mistake. Peace be with you!

I just wanted to let you know that your site has truly touched my soul. I have been so weary with an issue that I've been carrying and have given it to God many times and, just like you said, I "take it back" and nothing is ever accomplished and I never progress in my problem. After reading your articles on trusting God with our issues and not taking it back when we feel that isn't going exactly the way we want, has enlightened me more than I can express. Thank you so very much for writing such an article and for having such wonderful faith in our God. Your faith has taught me to be stronger. God Bless, and thanks again.

Dear Jacki,
In your testimony, you mention a conversation with a priest. You asked 'what the problem is' in response to the affirmation that Christ died for all our sins. The priest that you say you talked to, seems not to have been able to ID the problem; that's a shame. However, here's the problem:
You claim that Christ died for all sins, such that no further forgiveness was necessary, right? Well, then, when He appeared to the apostles, Christ should've said, "OK! It's all done now! No more sin, no more 'problems'!" The 'problem', though, is that he didn't say that. Instead, in John 20:23 -- after He resurrected -- Jesus tells the apostles, "Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them". Well, wait a minute! If all sins had been forgiven, without any need for any other forgiveness, then the remission of sins by the apostles should not be necessary! So... oops! ... it looks like your notion not only fails to work, but is directly contradicted by Scripture, straight from Jesus' mouth!
Blessings,
L.

Your testimony of conversion from the Catholic Church is awesome! You are one of the few who get the real message of truth. My book is: Testimonials of a Biblical Christian A Nonreligious Perspective of the Holy Bible.
The main theme is a personal relationship with Jesus. It is available at all the major bookstores and more info at my website acceptjesustodaycom.ipage.com.

It is not a religion it is a relationship.

God Bless

I was amazed when I read Jacki's story of how she was converted to Christianity from Catholicism. I had to keep checking to see if it was a copy of my words I had written so many times to others! Even to the Catholic Chronicles written by Keith Green. I print them out to people who are longing to see them. They are still on the Internet if you would like to know where to find them.

Thank you for confirming my conversion, and for having the courage to speak out!

In His name,

Have been suffering severe allergy symptoms for over ten years. About a year ago they progressed to laryngeal spasm and asthma attack precipitating 5 ER visits and the loss of my job. I have found some improvement through organic foods, cleanses to include candida cleansing, and a myriad of supplements including ayurvedics. If anyone is interested I would love to share what I've learned.

And we know that God causes all thingy to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

I have MCS and never feel truly well in my home. When I go to visit my daughters in their homes I feel much better. Here is the strange thing that I cannot figure out: Everything I bring there, luggage, clothing, the dog etc.... when it re-enters my own home it has a sickly flowery smell and I start getting the nerve vibrations all in my body again. When they come to visit here, their stuff needs to stay in the bedroom with the door closed as the flowery smell returns. Why does everything smell fine while at their home, all the stuff I bring as well what's in their home, yet once in this home the smell is there? Once I wash everything I bring and air out all the luggage for weeks, the smells disappear. This is causing such strife between my husband and me as he says it does not make sense, that then we should never go anywhere. Yet I feel so well at their home. Could there be something neurotoxinc in my home? I just can't figure it out and wondering if anyone else has ever had this problem or has an idea what the problem could be? Any ideas would be welcome.

I am allergic to Formaldehyde (tested positive for) and other chemicals (not yet tested for) and am doing a Food Elimination diet. The food elimination diet has been going on for over 5 years. I am ready to get the blood test done, saving up for it now.

I need to organize a fundraiser to provide enough funds to provide housing and things needed to make life easier, such as air filtration, bedding covering, furniture, etc. possibly for myself and another MCS sufferer who could be a house mate. A housemate is very difficult to find unless they are willing and understanding of every issue you deal with.
I am positive, have lots of faith in God, and believe in healing and conquering all of this with enough funds for all the tests and treatments. I believe in shots and things that can help me get back to normal. I am also going to write a book about the journey in order to get the public more aware and help others. People have no idea how life changing this is and how every single day is a struggle to move, breathe and eat.
Thank you for your site. I am sure I will be using it.

I was doing a specific internet search on Christian Testimony and was so deeply shocked and offended by the MANY grave blanket statement in error made about the Catholic Church I could not let it go by.

I've been on the petloss.com website since last week when we had to make the painful decision to put our 6 year old cat Lucifer, to sleep. Because he was so young I am not without guilt. I just read Dusty's story and it filled me with such warmth and appreciation for others who love their pets as much as I do. Dusty was very lucky to have such loving and caring parents and you two are so lucky to have the love you do. If it wasnt for my husband shared grief I dont know if I could have survived this past week. Knowing that there are other people who feel the same grief when I've been feeling so alone is such a wonderful comfort. For people like us, and you Jackie and Gordon, pet's are not just pet's - they are friends and children and a source of unconditional love that can never be matched by a human companion. Allowing our pet's suffering to end peacefully was the right decision for us and for you and I know this now even though it hasnt gotten any easier to accept. I'm so glad you two had the opportunity to share Dusty's life and his story has made me realize even more so how important the good times were and how blessed we've been sharing the last 6 years with our beloved Lucifer. Our teddy bear. Thank you for being such loving people and for sharing Dusty's story with the world.
Much love!

I was blessed to read your story and believe God has a plan for me to glorify him as well! Unfortunately, I get off track with my mind being so affected by Chemicals, dust etc. I live with and used to just assume it was SYMPTOMS of FMS/CFIDS or ADHD diagnosis I had been given over past 25 years?
Every doctor said that I had to live with brainfog, however I notice it being better with healthy eating and avoidance of chemicals.
HELP NEEDED: building a house and OSB board (containing formaldehyde) over basement caused reaction when I visited construction site, therefore we are ripping it off
THE PROBLEM IS WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO PUT AS SUBFLOORING THAT WILL NOT OFF GASS OR AT LEAST NOT OFF GASS THINGS I AM SENSITIVE TO????
Does anyone have any ideas??????
GOD IS SO GOOD: recently I decided to FINALLY see if removing my amalgym fillings will help brain fog and digestive disorders and in visiting Holistic Dr.she said i was grinding teeth/fillings and She is Having Thorton Device CUSTOM Made AND WANTEDT TO AVOID USING MATERIALS THAT SHOW NEGATIVE REACTIVITY.
When the chemcial reactivity blood work came back it REVEALED thwt i have negative reaction to materials COMMONLY FOUND IN PLYWOOD, (along with several other) SPECIIFICALLT FORMALDEHYDE, PHENOLS GROUP AND TOLUENE GROUP.
Several other came back, a few that I am familiar with were aluminum,m, lead mercury, nickel) however not sure if those woukd be used as building materials in house or if they off GASS.
PLEASE IF ANYONE HAS EXPERIENCE IN THIS AREA OR A LEAD ON WHO I CAN CONTACT I WOULD BE FORECER GRATEFUL! Thank u and may the Lord richly bless all of u!!! I pray that everyone find relief and COMPASSION TO OUR STRUGGLES!

I read your story, as I have suffered from severe MCS for several years now. Have come close to death several times and have lost everything in the process. Job, friends, family. But I still try to have faith. I have several other diseases now that have shortened my life span, but, nothing compares to MCS. It is the most debilitating disease there is. I can no longer leave the property and do not have finances to change anything. I am thankful for my father for all of his help...I am 49, he 73.

I stumbled onto your site while looking for info on chemicals in certain products. I love your commitment to sharing info about how to live chemical free! I have also been interested in this topic for a number of years as I noticed my allergic reaction to products with "fragrance" in them and other chemicals. I was recently introduced to Shaklee in September 2011 (Maybe you have heard of them? Around for over 55 years now!) which has all completely safe and chemical free products! I was thrilled to find these products and have switched over to them for my own home and personal care. What a difference! They work so well and are very cost effective. If you would like to speak to me more about this and my experience please email me or contact me through facebook (search for Jessica's Health Shak). God bless you and good luck with spreading the word about chemical free living!

Jacki,
I read your story on your conversion from Catholicism to Biblical Christianity and really liked it. I myself am a Catholic that is thinking about trying non-denominational churches because I don't agree with the Catholic Church about certain things. I just wanted to ask you about your take on things like the miracles of Fatima.. or the Statue of the Virgin Mary that cried in Las Vegas. These things are kind of holding me back still. Thank you.

I just read Jacki's testimony because I was searching for other Catholics who were beginning to have doubts. In January of this year, I started going to my daughter's church with her husband. The difference was phenomenal. Miracles seem to go on at each service. I have some major guilt thinking about leaving the Catholic Church. Even though we were pretty much forced to go to church, I am still shocked that rosaries, saints and Mary's apparitions can no longer be a part of my life. So I guess I'm still on the fence. Thanks for letting me speak here.

My daughter has severe MCS as well as pollen and dust allergies and asthma, and has had 2 kidney transplants. She had pollen allergies when younger and able to take allergy shots, but can't do shots now. She and I had mild MCS, but hers has ballooned in the last 2-3 years. It is hard to travel, clean, shop, go to a show, get away from fabric softeners, perfumes and the godawful air and room freshemers (which all her docs and dentists use) and the chemicals in hospitals. I developed asthma and so has she as well as the MCS. It is severe for her - she can walk by a display of the oily room fresheners and literally fall to her knees and act like she is drunk. This MCS HAS to recognized and health care professionals and hospitals to the best of their abilities need to try to do away with harsh chemicals and the horrible fresheners in every plug-in. My daughter was in the hospital for terrible pneumonia and a nurse actually came in to
spray air freshener even though my daughter said she was very allergic to it !!!!

Both of my children were healed of MCS/EI.
Our son had it for 16 years,(age 4-20) while our daughter spent the last year and a half of high school on the couch at home, teaching herself because she couldn't go to school.
We're grateful someone told us about the book, A More Excellent Way by Henry Wright, and the ministry Be In Health at Thomaston Georgia.
Both "kids" are living normal lives- and mom and dad- well, we now have more tools to living the Christian life.
God bless you all.

As a former Catholic who also attended Catholic school until the 9th grade, is is so refreshing to have read Jacki's testimony. I can relate so well. All my life I felt something was missing in my religous life, had so many questions about things not matching up to Biblical Principals I left the church in my teenage years. Praise God my husband and myself were saved 5 years ago and now live a life according to God's word. We have never been happier. Our grandson got saved at the age of 5 and saved his mom at the age of 7. Get them early I say. Thank you for letting me share.

I recently found 2 Doctors, one in Central Florida and one on Florida's West Coast, who are both treating MCS with Peptide injections. Has anyone done more research on these, or maybe received the Peptide shots? I'd greatly appreciate any comments on this.

Hi, Gorden and Jackie - I think my new book, Which Poison Will Change Your Life? An MCS Survivor's Eye-Opening View into the Socio-Political Forces Which Make Today's "Invisible Illnesses" Possible and Probable, would be a vital addition to your book listings. It is already available through Amazon (also B&N online) so maybe adding a link wouldn't be too difficult. Thanks. Glenna

Jacki, thank you for your website and all the good information. hope you're doing well and that your health is getting better!! I've been sensitive to perfumes most of my life but had no idea how bad it can get. now it's to the point where I can no longer go the Mall and have to avoid some other Stores as well. the perfumes I am exposed to at work(office) are torturous to me. it's hard to get anyone to understand, even my doctors. although, I think my Allergie doctor knew exactly what I am up against and explained that this is not allergy, it's chemicals, and I have to avoid it. I would like to connect with some people in my area who suffer from this invisible illness also. I live in Hobe Sound,FL which is between Jupiter(Palm Beach County)and Stuart(Martin County).

Hi, I read your story. I too had amalgams removed correctly. The composites crumbled. Advice to others: Go with a nontoxic gold product the first time. Do a quadrant every 3 months! Be careful. My reaction to toxins is worse by 100 times since having my teeth done. We followed the Huggins Protocol. I had chelation therapy. I am worse than before I started. I am so chemical sensitive now, I can barely leave the house. Can anyone start a movement to ban perfume at church? I can't go to the morning services. We could fund a lot of stuff with the $ saved by not buying "toxic-water" aka cologne.

I'm sure there are other sufferers of MCS that were patients of Dr. Albert Robbins. I called today and the telephone lines are now disconnected. I know that at one time his office was closed for a few months, then he changed his hours to 1/2 day. This was sudden for me and I was not informed that the office was closing. Since the phones are disconnected I don't know who to talk to in order to obtain my medical records. Also, does anyone know of another Physician that is familiar with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities? I live up in Sebastian, right above Vero Beach. I understand there are very few Physicians that even give LDA injectins, let alone know what MCS even is. If anyone can give me some direction in any way, I sure would appreciate it. I must say, I am almost in a panic right now. Thank you.

Hello,
I have muliple sensitivity. My problem started about 14 months ago. It was minor then, however,
it has gotten much worse. I am allergic formaldihye phenol/glycerine,and ethanol.It's hard for me to get out of the house because I'm always in contact with a chemical. The combination of the chemical and fragrances make me short and breath, and I start to cough and can't stop until I'm out of that environmnet. Also, everything that is listed burns my eyes. Any suggestions on how to cope with this? I feel like I'm the only one with this problem. My husband is understanding,however, he suggested somekind of support because i's stuck in the house all day.
Thankyou,
Beth

I just found your website. I have been suffering from mcs for over two years now with the reactions to perfumes and other chemicals having now become debilitating. I wound up in the hospital recently after three major "triggering" reactions from the same perfume within a 5-day period. In the emergency room, I was exposed to an0ther chemical which started another triggering reaction. The emergency room doctor did not appear to have knowledge of mcs or how to treat it, and the situation became very difficult requiring me to leave the hospital. I am thankful for your website and the information you have on it.

I have fibromyalgia so I need a bed that is really soft, but I also have MCS(multiple chemical sensitivity) so I react to most beds(fire retardant chemicals in mattresses) w/ a migraine w/in half an hour of laying on one..haven't been able to find a bed for over 10 years! Tried almost everything...

Tried all natural beds(gave me a migraine as well cause smelled too natural(burlap sack smell). Any soft cushiony toppers are either foam or natural latex which smell and give me a migraine. Tried special zippered covers designed for people... w/ chemical sensitivities..didn't work and could smell everything through the cover. Even researched online and covered my bed in mylar blankets(kind of like aluminum foil)...no help either. I just would really love a bed I could sleep on that wouldn't hurt either my body or my head and i'm tired of sleeping on a couch for 10 years(only thing that doesn't give me a migraine but really aggravates my fibro symptoms;-(.........any help/thoughts/suggestions are greatly appreciated! ps..i see some have tried wool mattresses but i am allergic and get migraines from the smell of wool so that is out and i am at my witz end...please help!

Thank Goodness there is sites like yours. I have learned so much from your site. I am one that suffers from being near any type of fragrance. It has gotten much worse as I have gotten older. This last time it took over six weeks to start feeling better and over 500 dollars in meds plus making many changes in how I live in my own home. Seems I do not have many friends any longer. No one seems to understand this problem. They cannot understand that it is not just the perfume they wear but also the hair spray or conditioner or fabric softner they use that causes my attacks.
So thankful I found a new doctor who already has a patient that has this problem so is helping by making sure she wears nothing that will lead to an attack during my appointments with her. Hoping the news will get with the program and out government also to let all understand this problem and make our lives safer.

I too struggle a lot with these sensitivities. Your son-in-law has to be given a kind but very direct message that you love him and want him to visit, but you simply cannot have the fragrance/chemicals inside your home. If he must wear them, then he must find somewhere else to stay. Whether he believes you really have this problem or not is up to him, but he must respect it (by complying) if he wants to be there. I know it is hard, I deal with similar issues, but we have to do it. Kind but firm, and their reaction is their choice, and not always a happy one.

Thanks for such an informative website. I hadn't thought about adding plants to help with chemical sensitivities.

I have asked him to stop but he won't; not sure if this is deliberate, or if he just doesn't care. My daughter has also asked him to stop, with no effect. I don't know if plants will provide enough help but I'm at my wit's end. My sympathies to folks who need to avoid toxins for their health, and get no support. Your website really helps validate our situation and offers practical help -- thank you!

Hi Jackie

I read your article on weight loss, then I read about your environmental allergies. Can you tell me if you had your weight problem first or if allowing yourself to eat anything was something that triggered environmental allergies. I am with you all the way regarding diet. Diets simply do not work because your body makes sure they do not. I have had allergies to food, wool, linen and plasters. Last year I was quite ill and had hospital tests. My doctor wanted me to have more tests, but I turned to God instead. I think that believing one hundred percent in the power of God to heal me did in fact heal me. I joined with my Higher Self and totally believed that I was healthy. Sometimes I would wake up in the night in a panic, worrying about what was supposed to be wrong with me. I would relax, breathe deeply and become one with my higher self and completely believe that I was well. I also dropped all my medication because I felt that it made me worse. I cut it down slowly and cut the tablets in half, then halved them again. Then I took one every other day, then lengthened the time to a week and stopped altogether. I would not tell anyone else to do this because I am not responsible for anyone else's health. For me though, the power of faith, trust and belief worked.

Bless your website.

I am my household's sole income. All my work experience is in retail, and as personal care attendant doing homecare. The past 3 years I have worked part time as a merchandiser for a wholesaler. I pretty much stay home except to go to work because it takes all my days off to recover. The question I have been asking everyone is how do I make a decent living, when exposure to everyday household items such as shampoo, laundry detergents, soap, plastics, paint, and perfumes makes me ill? I really don't think people really understand that when they walk by me with some scented product on their skin or clothes that feels like physical assault. Has anyone got a suggestion?

This website is such a great resource for MCS, Provocation/neutralization treatment. Thank you for this.
I have a daughter who was diagnosed with moderate Autism when she was 2 years old. I asked God to help me find a way to get her better, because I knew that she was sick and not "mentally ill" as the medical establishment has labeled her. That was 4 years ago and today she is 6 years old and does not have "autism" any longer, thanks to a doctor who treated her chronic viral infections and her enviromental medicine doctor who treated her chronic inflammation due to allergies to foods, pollens, and chemicals (he used P/N). I have my daughter back and she is beautiful, happy, and NOT autistic at all. I pray that God can bring these treatments in the mainstream so that other kids and families can be set free from this awful and misunderstood illness we call Autism. God bless you folks!

Hi! Found your site because I was researching hair highlighting chemicals - and read further. Thought I would add a bit of my health history in case it might help Jackie with her MCS. Around 1993 I had a battery of skin allergy tests, and was found to be very allergic to many things. They put me on a battery of self injections of the various allergens, and after a year and a half of that, my IGG allergies had become IGE (throat swelling) ones. So, I almost starved to death, because most of my shots were for food allergies.

Anyway, went to a different set of doctors, and found that I had candida in my blood and digestive system, went on a candida diet, and took one month of diflucan (100 mlg) a day, and had the twenty mercury fillings in my mouth removed, by a dentist who knew how to do it without my ingesting all the mercury. Fillings replaced with fillings made of Brilliant, and caps of Gold. Had the mercury removed before I went on the month of Diflucan.
Now, my allergies are much improved, and so is my SENSITIVITY TO CHEMICALS, which was very prevalent before the mercury fillings were removed.

In my case, my systemic yeast infection made my system incredible sensitive to almost everything, and also made me very allergic. So, if you are suffering from MCS, make sure you don't have mercury fillings (!), and make sure you don't have a systemic yeast infection. If you do, and you take care of those imbalances, I am sure that your MCS will improve.

Good luck to you!

As you may know, in 2006 the Invisible Disabilities Association (formerly Advocate) launched the Cleaner Indoor Air Campaign (CIAC). IDA has been serving those with debilitating conditions since 1996.

The purpose of CIAC has been to provide information and support for those living with Environmental Illness, as well as helpful tools such as letters and posters for people to use to make changes in their community businesses, medical facilities and churches.

We have revamped the site and added a new project Choose Friendships Over Fragrances with 9 new posters and ways to help loved ones omit or change out products. We also have a candid video between two friends talking about the challenges of getting together, because of fragrances, but how rewarding it can be for everyone.

We would like to exchange links with your wonderful organization (we do not see either of our websites listed on your resources). Also, please consider adding this exciting news to your blogs, site, publications and more!

Hope to hear from you soon! Together we can make a difference!

I became chemically aware in 1980's, through my mom, however I did not get a full understanding till I became sick myself from mercury fillings. 1999 started going to Dr. Rea, I have been sharing your website, since then. God Bless you and your family!!! My youngest son wears such toxic cologne, I have bad reaction even today, Praise God... bible says be thou not ignorant why should you die before your time... Your wonderful site, is wisdom and education for those who are willing to listen... Unfortunately we as humans do not listen till it is too late sometimes!!

I was poisoned 3 years ago upon moving into a new home. They used muratic acid to clean the tiles and the fumes from the new construction nearly killed me. I had neurological issues, balance problems, visual disturbances, panic disorder, etc. caused by this exposure. I am living in a prison with no escape. I can't go anywhere...people are perfume crazy and all the buildings have plug-ins/mold or new construction chemicals! I can't work, have lost friends...family think I m making this all up. Doctors look at me as if they want to commit me. Where is the sense in all of this. I'm only 48 and I feel as if I want to go home to be with Our Lord soon. Where's the hope? I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy.

I read your page on becoming a Bible Christian after being Catholic. I am glad you have grown closer in your relationship with Jesus but I think that some of the things that you found appalling about Catholic Church teaching during your conversion just are not true - such as Catholics don't believe heaven is a real place or that penance makes up for sin. Purgatory and Mary are not light subjects, but worth looking into because distortions can happen from Catholics and non-Catholics who don't fully understand the Church's stance. I would encourage you to look into what the Church truly teaches on these matters, if not for a change of heart, atleast for accuracy and understanding. If you would like me to help or explain myself, please email me back.

Thank you for your articles. I work for a small firm. Mine and one other cubicle sit in a corner next to a single bathroom that one would imagine is merely for the convenience of relieving one's self quickly in order to get back to work. Unfortunately some use those chemical Bath and Body company body sprays in there to mask their over use of such a publicly spaced latrine. There is another bathroom with multiple stalls on the next floor but there are a couple who don't want to walk the stairs to do that 2nd business. The side affect of using the B&BW sprays is that the scent only seems to linger, for hours mind you, right in our two cubicles. If you turn the other way you smell nothing. Consequently it burns the sinuses, leads to a stomachache and/or migraines and fits of sneezing and is even stronger in the bathroom. As I'm sure you are aware it makes it so hard to concentrate on work and hard to ignore it, even with a fan in my face it seems to get sronger! I tried offering febreeze with a mild scent but they bothered someone else so I was asked to remove them. With multiple mentions to the office administrator about these women using those B&BW sprays there is still no sign indicating not to use perfumes in the bathroom. She did take some sprays that people put in there out but the one big culprit just brings hers with her when she goes to the bathroom. I've reached my boiling point and it will do no good. Why if someone else complains its okay but when I do I get ignored? I know if I complain or threaten any sort of lawsuit to end the stink the owner will just fire me with no qualms whatsoever, he'd call me a malcontent and apparently he'd be within his rights as owner of the company. How does one fight something like this?

I have no problem with people wearing colognes or perfumes just not to the extent that you can smell them coming and going and when it clings to me as well!

My living situation is changing and I will now need to use a public laudromat [or some other option that I've not yet thought of] to wash my clothes. Does anyone have suggestions for how a chemically sensitive person can manage to use a washer that has been used by other folks who may be using scented products?

Also, suggestions for how to deal with outgassing from newly installed carpet??

Thank you so much for any suggestions and encouragement!!

I have used plain baking soda (and NO detergent whatsoever) to wash towels and washcloths since my husband and I got married well over 30 years ago. Even our washcloths that we use everyday, we have had since 1989. We bought good quality ones and they have proven themselves over time. They still have no holes in them, but are now starting to get a tiny bit thin...because they are over 20 years old! I have never used fabric softener in them...and they are still very soft.

I cleaned houses for many years and one of my clients asked me one day why her towels would not absorb anymore. I asked her if she used fabric softener in them and she said, "Oh, yes...all the time." I suggested to her that she use plain baking soda and no detergent to wash them, and skip the softener. You would not believe all the oily, sludgy residue that came out of them! It floated to the surface. It looked really nasty! She washed them a couple more times and the rest of the stuff came out. They were clean and soft again and absorbed like they should.

My husband is allergic to all fabric softeners (both the liquid & dryer sheets), so I have never used them. Even his denim jeans are soft with no fabric softener. We use plain white vinegar when we want something like a fabric softener...and it works great. The vinegar smell dissipates, so it does not linger. Adding a bit of baking soda to your laundry detergent also boosts its cleaning power, so you can use far less detergent and save money as well.

I'm distressed by your site. Some of the information on here is great, and has been very helpful, but some represents a rejection of scientific discovery. Metabolism seems to be completely ignored (the safety of aspartame has been repeatedly verified in continued studies). The ability of fluoride to prevent cavities is summarily dismissed despite significant scientific study on the matter. Not that you can avoid fluoride anyway, water has been fluoridated for decades. There's even a claim that chemicals aren't tested at all before being put into use, which is absolutely silly, there are numerous regulatory bodies in place, and the amount of testing done on any newly discovered natural or synthetic compound is stunning. I'm distressed by a general lack of scientific understanding, basic biological processes, and the ability to independently verify claims. I'm hoping for a helpful response, these are serious charges. If not for what I've mentioned I would have complete faith in your site's information.

I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal savour May 19, 1974. Once I started reading the bible I did not like what God was giving me. He was preparing me for the future. I thought accepting Christ my trials and pain will go away. I was not a good leader to the family I help raise.

1993 I excepted a job to work in an engineering lab. I did not pray and ask God if it was his will.

I was exposed to 737Lf cleaning product and a molocoat product. I was label in 1994 by a doctor that I have multiple chemical sensitive.

For 7 years I fought to get NYS worker's com. During that time I learn to trust in God even if he choose not heal me. He is after my heart.

This month I having a bad time with a house that is closed because of winter. Dealing with exhaust when I take my wife to work. This past Sunday I was exposed to perfume. Because I choose to support my daughter and go to a wedding planning event.

Signs that I am going through headache, body trimmers, depression, need to sleep a lot, and sometimes feeling like I want to throw up.

I do not want to take pills to fight depression. I believe it is chemicals fighting chemcicals.

Prove me wrong if you can,but I am trusting the saints and testimony of the 12 as it is written in the Word.

I found your website while trying to find a site to help us with the death of our Brittany Spanial, "Spot" and am glad I did. We have cried our eyes out and have felt so guilty because we had Spot put dowm. He was suffering from a very bad case of heartworms. The previous owner had taken hm to the vet and had him treated, but failed to follow up with the second round of medication. We Loved him so much, and we are taking it very hard. We will be fine for maybe a day or so and then something would hit us, like a memory and here comes the guilt and the pain, followed closely by the tears.
I think that your website will help us some, at least we know that we are not crazy for feeling the way we do about Spot.
Thank you so much for sharing your story with us.

Hello everyone,
I have had MCs all of my life. So when I had taken the time to read everyones message, I had thought: "WOW ! I must have written that message and did not remember doing it." A lot of these messages sounded so familiar. I had to write you back to you all, and let you know that I truly understand and sympathize with everyone. I honestly know how frustrating and overwhelming it is to have this type of a medical condition can be. Remember there is hope out there....."JUST BE PATIENT, AND HANG IN THERE...FOR YOU ARE NOT ALONE AND BELIEVE ME THERE IS HOPE IN RECOVERY"

MAY GOD BLESS YOUR STEPS! Keep up the good works good and faithful servants!
When we really want Him, God does give us the truth! After learning the truth about this world it is hard to like the system here right? The Word does say that God hates the method in which this world is run and if we don't learn to hate it too we havn't changed enough!
I have been poisoned with BENZENE over 40 years now! The big auto company, it occured through, ran and hid from it's responsibility and now is struggling! I won't try to list the hardships of my life, they happen for our growth anyway. Ask for big things from our big God he does answer!
We must isolate from the rapant uses of chemicals the best we can. One thing God has directed me to has been IONIZED WATER! IT has been my best hope after going organic and raw foods. The water flushes toxic things from us on the celler level. After drinking this water for about a month(ONE LITER a day) I could again go out into society. The only useful ionized water on the market is from REAL WATER or from the filtered ionizers on the market today. Real Water started in Vegas and now has opened a plant in TN. The ionizer waters must be drank within 48 hrs. after drawing it or the ionized value is gone. The ionized quality of REAL WATER is stablized in their bottles. Yes the bottles are plastic( the least leeching),but the water will flush away great quanities of toxic stuff that you will feel! They are trying to use glass bottles, but believe me their water gives relief even in plastic. Along with the water, God has shared with me huge things that if employed would change the entire world. The closer we are to Him the greater the rewards. I'm 74 now and he has made me the energizer bunny of this chemical world. Praise Him, He is awesome!

Thank you, Lisa for placing your information in this web site dated September 11, 2010.
It was very good information to know. I will definitely write to them and complain about many of the toxic chemicals products that affect us all. I am also very sensitive to "Febreeze" and simple hate their false TV advertisements. I feel that it is not alright to show and inform other that it is normal to have addictive behavior, and that in oder to have more healthier house, you need to add their toxic chemicals into your environment.
Another product which I am have recently been having problems with is: the old fashion cleanser called: "BON AMI" iI had used that product all of my life now suddenly they have added a chemicals fragrance which had triggered a horrible reaction. I am so disappointed with this once great product. BUT...... now that I had read you message board I will be sending my complaints to that group. I like how you had suggested to state the neurological problems rather then just stating that you have an allergic reaction to their product......That makes a lot more sense and I would think it would be a more effective way of communicating a problem.
Thank you.

I used to come to your site a lot when I was sick! It was encouraging!! I wanted to return and share that I am well!! I had Environmental Illness for about 5 yrs. I had been healthy and no problems until we started building our home and moved into a travel trailer that we found out later it had black mold. I got very sick very quickly reacting to more and more things. I saw 16 doctors without much help. The naturalpath did h...elp if I knew what I had gotten into then he would treat me and i would feel better for a bit of time, but my body never held those treatments. If I got into that same thing a few days later I would again be ill. I also had severe depression and anxiety along with my reactions. What would happen for me when I had a reaction was that my pulse would race and my blood pressure dropped so I was very dizzy and nauseous. I spent 90% of my time in bed! I have 3 kids and that was rough! We did finish our house toxin free and I didn't leave my house for weeks at a time. I basically lived a life of avoidance. Well, I had a friend that had results using nutrition with her Rhuematoid Arthritis...... she went from heading to a wheelchair to teaching dance again! That got my attention. I started using the same products and what happened over that first year and a half is that my reactions reduced slowly and at this point - over 4 years later I do whatever I want to do, go where ever I want to go and feel better than I ever dreamed possible again. I wasn't looking for a business, but how could I keep my mouth shut?! The first person I shared with was my mom - she had Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue for about 15 yrs. In a matter of months she went from a cane to not even needing it! She feels amazing now and I can barely keep up with her!! I am SO grateful for this company - the products are unique and many are patented. In fact they have more patents than any other nutrition company I am aware of. To be honest, it is hard to share with people with EI and CF. They have all done SO much research and are so knowledgable about nutrition, they don't understand how different these products are. I get frustrated with that - because in over 4 years i have not seen anyone NOT get results that take them consistently. They work, period! If you want to get more info you can go to my website, there are several videos on there: 2ndchances.reliv.com (no www in front) my contact info is on there. I would be happy to connect anyone to others that have been where they are and ask questions. It is OK to be skeptical - but you do deserve to at least check it out fully before you say no! I said no 2 years before I said yes...and I really regret that. - Michele

Divinely lead to your site this morning. My husband and I were poisoned by toxic mold and mycotoxins, trichothecene and aflatoxins..It caused severe mcs, organ damage, chronic debilitating pain, breathing issues.. loss of possessions twice, homelessness, 8 moves..but the blessing has been the opportunity to reach out to others who are living this mold/mcs nightmare. God has not abandoned us. Your site is wonderful and inspiring. Also songwriters..it hurt when we lost our music studio..but through Godly friends we are writing again, only gospel songs... and we've recently found something that has helped relieve my debilitating pain and inflammation, has restored my husband's breathing (he has gone from oxygen every night to a week with none and purple discoloration of feet has almost disappeared) and also how to keep our home mold and chemical free.. we don't know how to act to actually feel better after almost 7 years... Still dealing with the mcs, but we are thankful for the positive changes and feel maybe our lives are turning around. Thanks so much for your site and everything you do to help others..

I was searching for information to help me alleviate the reaction I am having to some chemical I have inhaled (I live in an apartment building next door to my apartment is the laundry room and unfortunately a lot of the laundry products are causing me to have severe headaches, itching and nausea; sometimes the odors are so severe I have to go to bed to recover from the nausea, etc.) I used a pillow I had purchased at a thrift store ( I had used it in the living room on my sofa then moved it to my bedroom, then I wore a thermal top I had laundered several months ago and used Downy on it and suddenly I have headaches, itching and a terrible chemical smell in my nose, my chest hurts and I can even taste it on my lips). I found all of the information very informative and helpful and printed it out to check all of my shampoos, etc. I have started being more health conscious lately and use herbal supplements now instead of prescriptions, I still take acetaminophen for the headaches when they are severe and for my back. I didn't realize that the chemicals I have been exposed to might be caused pain in different areas of my body and some of the other medical problems until I read the information on your website. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, it meant so much to me (now I am crying because I have been praying for God to heal me and help me through this as it has been so difficult to go through, not being able to sleep and the nausea and headaches have been really bad) I thank God for you and the information you have made available to help others, even in your time of hurt. I stopped using Scope (when I found out it had Sodium Saccahrin in it and regular toothpast, now I use an herbal mouthwash from the health food store and baking soda for toothpaste). I need to find a good and healthful alternative to Downy fabric softener as my skin is sensitive and the laundry detergent while fragance free does not smell good irritates my skin. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Please know I will be praying for you. God Bless you all. Take you for placing the heading our Christian faith and your witness on your website...I am a Christian also and it really uplifted me as I know from personal experience that God still heals His people and that His word, The Holy Bible is absolutely true.

You have no idea the comfort that you brought to someone who has had MCS for their entire life just trying to survive, to live as normal as possible despite the world making it ever more difficult. You have inspired me, that maybe, just maybe I can do something, anything, to help others realize that they are not alone in their struggle for a normal life.

Please report all specific product problems, including neurological problems, to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. cpsc.gov
Report all complaints to the manufacturer, which is easy to find these days on the internet. It is important that the U.S. CPSC receive all complaints. They are not "being bothered" these days with "allergies," so if you are having neurological symptoms like headache, strange sensations, seizures, etc., please put that at the top of the list. Any other symptoms not classically included as an "allergy," please be sure to report that.
Even if you have a general product problem, like the one I see in this discussion blog for triclosan (in the hand cleaners and sanitizers), please send them a complaint. The agency is fully aware, as is the EPA, that this chemical is toxic. However, they did not pull it off the market when the studies revealed that it is toxic! If they get enough pressure from consumers, they'll have to investigate.
I see another thread here at the this site - Febreze. It is not a "breathe of fresh air." This is false advertising. If anyone knows how to sue them for misleading ads, please share with us.

Stumbled upon this site, good info for healthier living, even though our family doesn't have any real symptoms from our toxic world, God Bless. FYI, the Dr. Bonners baby castille soap is sold at Target, Givoanni's shampoo products too. We picked up some yesterday, good pricing. Target the bottles w/ an $8 rebate tag for the Giovanni's conditioner (shampoo too I think) my wife uses, so it'll end up costing us $.50 for the bottle.

But the problem is my respiratory system so I cannot go outside when a dryer is using laundry softener or around people who have use a product containing fragrance. I also have PTSD which together keeps me really depressed and suicidal. I am a disabled veteran who does get help mentally but not being able to socialize is really getting to me. I have heard that Europe has banned toxic chemicals in their consumer products. If this is true I will move there. Does anyone know if the toxic chemicals have been banned from fragrance.

Thank you! Thank you! and Thank you! for your wonderful website. After many years of having problems with perfumes and perfumed products, you solved the puzzle and gave it a name. It seems when something has an actual name, people take you a little more seriuosly and I've used parts of your site, several times, to explain to people what causes my problems, including my employer and my doctor who had no clue. I also share your site with anyone I know who has constant headaches and doesn't seem to know why they have them. Including the headache "club" that my boyfriend attends monthly. I just had to send a scathing email to Proctor and Gamble for perfumed coupons I received for Febreeze, one of the worst products being advertized these days. Please, please, please don't ever remove this site.
Thank you,

I've had MCS for 20 years and consider myself a pro on the subject. I want you all to know this chronic illness changes our DNA so all new cells are replicated as "diseased". However, there is hope and solutions to our problems. I'm happy to share my knowledge and help make you healthier, even as I struggle to stay the same. I work in an employment agency and educating my fellow workers and clients is an on going challenge. I appreciate this website and all your comments and stories.

Affresh™ Washer Cleaner from WHIRLPOOL CORPORATION
(Product Number: W10135699, W10139509, W10139509A, 461970239311) has a fragrance in it. I am trying to find out what the chemicals are so that I can help my community with this. We have 28 homes and there are two washers and all of our water goes into a constructed wetlands and feed back into the community landscaping. Also, many people might be affected by the fragrances so I don't want to use it before having as much information as I can. I have contacted Whirlpool and they sent the Material Data Sheet which only lists the "active ingredients". Any help with this would be appreciated.

We have a new group of sufferers to add to our community. At least that it=s what many news reports are indicating. These are the workers and others in the area that were exposed to the disbursement chemicals used to 'solve' the Gulf oil spill. I even saw a report that workers are having to go to court and sue for the right to wear protective respirator masks. This site can be a great service to those who may well end up suffering from some form of chemical sensitivity or chemically induced asthma. In my case a horrendous incident at work on 1/10/89 left me permanently susceptible to various chemicals causing inflammation and asthma exacerbation's. On exposure of even parts per billion for all mucous membranes "burn" and get inflamed and if it continues even blood is affected. If I were a worker or lived in the area, I would get a respirator mask and cartridges for organic vapors and acid gases and hepa filters. its will not protect your skin, but at least your lungs, the most delicate of tissues, will have some protection. And if one gets fired for protecting ones self: file EEOC complaints and any other kind of complaints. As I experienced: By the time my lungs burned; it was too late. So often, there is little scent and one is unaware of the danger until the harm is done. There are those in 'power' that seem to think that rules and cautions are not needed: as if they have become 'almighty gods' immune from any thing and any one. Problem is when those in authority are allowed to continue with such an 'attitude' horrendous things occur and now we are faced with oil gushing out into the ocean. it seems only the Dept of Agriculture has on site inspectors anymore. Maybe its time to place more in many other places when humanity in general can be so adversely affected. I welcome discussions and e-mails from any of those who will be seeking information. I am not a doctor! Just a 21+year old sufferer. Best advice: protect yourself. File whatever is needed to assure protection and medcial care. Find a doctor(s) who will blend the 'natural" with the most up to date treatments accepted by the medcial community. That is often not the rationed care that many insurance companies and govt programs provide! its time for our new administration that publicly promotes the 'green' environment to realize that there are many who have been injured because policies have not been as such. Every disaster has emotional trauma. Seek that help if its needed: but remember your injures are physical and very real and our own govt's scientific studies have proven it is so even if the FDA has ignored us for years. My prayers go out to the newly injured! May you receive prompt and good medcial care and may you not have to be in a constant battle for medcial care and livelihood against humongous companies that don't seem to 'care.' Linda Joy Adams

I will be looking over this site extensively in the days to come, but if anyone can tell me quickly if there are tests that can be done to determine MCS. My 10 year old has been suffering since January. We have checked sinuses with a CT, gallbladder with ultrasound, gone through a complete chiropractic treatment, and are currently seeing a nutritionist. I am finally able to put some pieces of the puzzle together since my daughter's already horrible symptoms have been made worse after being in certain places. I don't think this is just a Candida Yeast issue. Thanks for any help. I don't know what types of doctors/natural practitioners I should take her to, test to be done, or how to start the healing process. Do I need to limit her activities? She is an actor, dancer, singer, and musician. Plus she's 10! Do I need to buy a great air filter and keep her in the house until her immune system recovers?
Thanks!

I am very thankful to have found this website and especially the verses page for strengthening my faith. I have found myself in a position with my business that has put me in a place financially with many ramifications that I have never been exposed to before. It is making me look like someone who I am not. This has made me look to God and bring me to him and now put me in a position to give him the ultimate controll. I have not learned how to do this yet but I know it is right and this is what he wants me to do. I have a beautful wife and 2 year old daughter that are everything to me and hope that god will see fit to keep me and my family together and bring me through this. The scriptures I have found on this site are powerful and I feel they are directed to my soul. I look forward to share good news back to you soon on how god has worked in my life. I also want to have this be the ultimate change in my life.

Best wishes to all,

I had a Lysol Neutra Air Automatic unit in my Livingroom, a room we seldom use. I fell asleep there last Sunday and when I woke up, realized how strong the odor was. I had been asleep across the room from this unit for an hour. Since then I have suffered allergic reaction type symptoms that got worse every day. Yesterday I had flu like symptoms. After a long night's sleep I am feeling somewhat better but the painful cough is still with me. Any suggestions on how to speed recovery from this would be appreciated. I will never use these products in my home again.

I have just found your site. I have MCS and allergies to many foods, dusts, molds, pollens. Environmental illness big-time. Am on all kinds of serums. I had started a new job mid December 2009. It was a 'dream job' for me. Yesterday was my last day. Was @ new job only 3 days when my face started to swell and get inflamed. Found out that there were many culprits: big copy machine 7 or 6 feet away from me, asbestos flooring, pesticides from a year ago (for cockroaches), carpeting..glued down. Face is still having a difficult time.Had two rounds of prednisone while there for that short month and a half. I just had to call it quits. I am grateful for your site.

Hi,
Thank you for sharing your story. I knew that I couldn't be the only person in the world to be suffering with this problem. I have been suffering with asthma, allergies and multiple chemical sensitivity for over 30 years. Most of my family and friends don't understand how this affects every aspect of my life. I can't be around people that use scented products or smoke or even the smell of coffee and other foods. Which as you know includes work, school, church or any function that I am not able to exit from or wear my mask to avoid breathing in the smells and suffering the consequences of the exposure. As a result I limit my time spent in public places. I would just love to have someone to talk to that understands what it's like to live with this condition.

To begin with, I am interested in starting a formal lobby or coalition to fight the chemical scents/deodorizers/fragrances (whatever is unnatural) and would be willing to testify before the U.S. Senate or other political entity. If you know of a lobby or coalition, or would like to start one, please contact me.

I agree that we are all in a chemical warfare in the U.S.. What are the government regulatory bodies doing? What about all the commotion about "green"? Are any of the "green" coalitions working on this problem?

The list of chemical fragrances in products is growing at a terrible rate. And why did I see "Febreeze" advertised on this website? Most of the household and cosmetic products are now saturated with nauseating chemicals called "fragrance" on the label. I noticed that Febreeze, Tide detergent, Aussie hair products, Head and Shoulders, to name a few, now have lingering fragrances that are very different than those just 5-10 years ago. The chemists are busy working on ones that do not leave your clothes or hair like the old ones. The smell is also different and obnoxious to me.

I just wrote the U.S. Consumer Products division asking why companies are not required to tell us the specific, or chemical names, of "fragrance". We have no idea what toxins we are being exposed to. I agree with this website that peoples' sense of smell, their immune systems, and everything else, are being dulled by these products and they don't even know it. Because I am very healthy, I respond to toxins.
I live with migraines, and would like to have a job like everyone else. Unfortunately, all of these fragrance/deodorizer/chemical sensitivities make me miserable and hesitate to work in an office setting. Maybe a park ranger? It is hard to even stay in a hotel room anymore because the deodorizer and scented spray they use, make me sick. I complained upside down recently and got no reply from a Fairfield Inn.

Admin reply: Just a correction, Betsy! I do NOT advertise Febreeze on this web site!!!! In fact, I abhor that product. It is being advertised as a product that NEUTRALIZES odors - however, all it is doing is using yet another toxic FRAGRANCE to simply MASK odors... Just "perfume" with a new name <sigh>

Hi!

Struggeling with much of the same problems as Jackie have since 2000, I've been trying to understand better what my body reacts to over time. It is a fact that to avoid irritants is the best way, but sometimes those are difficult even to detect. The place(s) where you spend most time, are of most importance, and staying outside in the open far away from a city works good for the body, but is seldom possible. I live in a enviromentally good house after learning which materials, which fabrics, detergents a.s.o to use. My car is (deliberately) old, I buy used things when uncertain about reactions (check your bed), I travel mostly alone, I avoid malls etc., and yes it is not very sosializing, but those who know me mostly are aware, and those who don't care, I don't spend much time with. ;-) It is fair to say it has been a tough decade, but I see light in the smallest things.

The awareness around MCS is still low in my country, and this is an area that needs attention. Another decade with the same level of chemicals (or more?) will most certainly lead to an explotion in cases of MCS. So - keep up the good work, informing "healthy" citizens on the hazards of chemicals.

Thanx

Thank you for posting this very important information regarding the toxins we encounter every day. We truly are in the midst of chemical warfare - whether intentional or not. I believe it would be most helpful, however, if people began to understand that their "sensitivities" are not an illness, but are instead are signs that they are still healthy enough to know that they are in the presence of dangerous chemicals. A healthy immune system will naturally attack dangerous toxins, which in turn produces the symptoms that encourage one to (quickly) depart the area containing the toxins. People need not view themselves as weak or deficient in some way because of these reactions. The reactions are natural and are a sign that one's immune system is still alive - and kicking.

A plea for help and prayer.

Hello,

My name is Jeremy, I'm twenty-seven years old and my mother, sister, and I have suffered from extremely severe allergies for most of our lives. My aunt is also developing problems as well.
I think the first symptoms began for me when I was very young, maybe seven or eight. Since then, our health problems have continued to get worse and worse as the years have gone by. We've all been exposed over the years, to very high amounts of mold and suspect that that might have been the main cause.
It was surprising reading the first of Gloria Gilbere`s articles, talking about reactions. We can list all but one or two of the symptoms as things we're currently experiencing, at any given point in a typical day.
We have numerous sensitivities and allergies that prevent us from: leaving our house, working in a normal environment, eating/drinking most things, being around various animals/pets (cats in particular), plants, chemicals, scents, smoke (cigarettes and cedar are terrible for us), dust, mold, etc., without experiencing reactions of varying (often powerful) degrees. I'm wondering now if MCS/EI might be the reason for all these things, as well as the fact our allergies seem to have grown/be growing worse over time.

It's been amazing to read all the other people's stories and comments on the guest book here (I've read all thirty-three pages in the New Guest Book).
We've always known there are other people that suffer from similar things, but I've never really met anyone personally, that does. At least not as severely or widespread as ours are, that I'm aware of anyway. While I feel badly that others are suffering from these things as well, it really is genuinely nice to know that we're not alone.
Like many people, we've been told by nearly everyone we've met that "It's all in your head.", "You're crazy!", and/or "You're a liar, you're making all this up.". I've heard it so many times that, I myself, have almost given up hope from time to time and believed I must be crazy after all.
Right now we're looking for a job we can do from home, something that we can do safely. Even going to the store for groceries can be difficult if something has been spilled, broken, or sprayed (heavily seasoned or strongly scented foods, perfumes/colognes, cleaners, etc.). Simply walking down the aisles at times is very hard and makes buying the various things we need difficult.

I was hoping that someone here might be able to help us to find a job, know of one available, or have information about things we could do to make an income. Until now my father has supported us but he doesn't believe we have any health problems. He has told us we're all just lazy and making it all up so that we don't have to get jobs and work for a living.
Due to that, he's given us until the end of the year to get "normal jobs" like "normal people" are supposed to and to stop taking advantage of him or he's leaving.
We love him, we always have and always will. It's just very discouraging to be told this by your own father.
I've spent a long time looking over jobs, dozens and dozens of companies, hundreds, likely thousands of different positions. So far I haven't had much success finding positions that can work from home, most require you to work at the business itself. The few I do find all require various levels of education or experience in that particular field to qualify for the position.
Because of our health, neither my sister or I ever finished school or got a diploma/GED (my sister and I weren't able to stay in the building). Without either of those, however, we don't even qualify for the basic, simple work at home jobs I've found.
We can't read books anymore either because of the smell of the ink(s) and new paper, so studying and taking tests like most people isn't possible for us. I'm willing to work, I'm willing to learn, I just can't do it outside of my house or in the conventional manner.

Even our house is making us sick, it's poorly built, has very little insulation, and has an ever growing (no pun intended) mold problem. We've used weather stripping on the doors, "winterizing" plastic to cover almost all the windows, and safety plugs for all the electrical outlets to block the strong drafts from them. Unfortunately, none of it has really helped much. We need to build a house that is safe for us but don't have the money or all the information on materials, supplies, appliances, furnishings, etc., for the house to be built properly.

My mother just found this site less than a week ago and asked me if I would post something to see if we could find some more information (she hurt her shoulder, was in extreme pain, and hasn't been able to be up long enough to read or post here). We've been praying for God to help us, to show us what to do for a long time now. She thought maybe this site and all of you, people who have been through the same thing, and hopefully have more knowledge of jobs or materials then we do, might be the answer to our prayers.

I apologize for the length of this. If you have any information, advice, or options, we would greatly appreciate the help. Thank you for listening and God bless you.

Sincerely,
Jeremy

When I was fourteen I had perferated appendix for a year and a half. It sept through my whole system. When they took them out my body was full of gangreen. I have done okay through my childhood and teens, but had to be careful of perfums. Now I can't go to church, stores, etc. without wearing a mask. But that doesn't help much. I can't eat cinniman or be around it either. My throat swells up if I eat it. If I smell it I end up with different systems. I can't even go to a doctor. My husband died 3 yrs ago and I have five children and almost 10 grandchildren. My youngest has problems with smells. I am not complaining, but I don't even have money to be checked and they don't believe me anyways. I live with my 82 yr old parents. They made their home free from things for my purpose. Any help would be nice.

I had to put my Beloved Dog down this morning, this was the hardest day of my life,
Rodac was 10 years old, she was part of our families, and she will be missed so much,
My Daughter Christie told me about this site and i had to come and read for myself, this is our first loss of a pet and this has helped me so far, so thought that i leave a little message about my dog Rodac, people offten asked why did we pick that name for her that was from our first names of our family

My wife and I are highly sensitive to fabric softeners and have tried several brands in an attempt to find something we could tolerate. I was researching different manufacturers when I saw your site. I am very alarmed at the information you provided, although I should not be surprised. We have had serious side effects and have just recently determined the source. Is there a product available that we might possibly be able to use and avoid all of the toxicity? If anybody has any ideas please let us know.

I was wondering if anyone out there knows any MD's who specialize in MCS, Sick Building Syndrome, ect.

My employer installed a low grade industrial commercial toxic carpet. I have been suffering ill effects for the past year. Unable to work a full 8 hours in the office. Working from home but they want me back, went to Occupational & Environmental Health Clinic Dr. Told me alot of times stress related, sometimes woman who have been sexually abused have this issue. What kind of quack tells a patient that. Why be an Environmental Dr. if you are not for the cause.

Hi,

I have had MCS for over 10 years now. Mine started with an exposure at work. I was doing very well, and had built up a certain immunity to chemicals, and then I went to the doctor for my rosacea and he gave me medicine with acid in it, and this was last year. Since then my sensitivity has increased. I let all my co-workers know about this and they were great until yesterday when a co-worker I got into an argument with than proceeded to use pine-sol to clean her office. My mouth and tongue became numb, and my bones ached, now my head feels foggy, and my arm is numb. I am really greatful that there is a place to vent. I am very scared!

Hi Jacki,
I have had weird symptoms for many years and they sound a lot like what you described. When I drink from a can my lips swell up and burn. When I read a soft covered book I get an allergy attack. When I smell perfume I get an instant headache and feel very ill. I avoid malls for this reason. My new one is my front teeth and gums burn when I smell any cleaning products. Everyone (especially in-laws) think I am a crack pot. My husband doubts me and thinks I'm looking for attention. It's been hell. I have no energy and feel like c*** all the time. We don't have any insurance right now but as soon as I have it, I know what type of doctor I need to find because of you.
Thank you so much!

Wow! I thought I was a weird lost soul, I just found out there is a name for my issues,MCS, and that I'm not the only person in the world, in a wierd sence that is some what comforting. I, unlike some on those didnot have a doctor, and when all these symtomes hid me sinus infection, and cronic sinus headace and other flu like systems from time to time. Me and my daughter went to allergies, and had all kinds of allergies...so thus adjusted our lifes acordingly..but my desgive "issue" worsen, to but it nicely. Three different doc. wrote me off as if I was lying and could not find what my problems were caused by, now 17years later slowing figuring out what to elimiatat from my deit, which is nearly everthing, acohol, all extracts, viniger, vitames, colors, preseritives, all man made "fake" sugars, and ect...ofcorse I've not used hairspray, or purfum in 20 years nor could I be around it or get headach, and sinus instantly. Anyway like you and alot of other I too, am believing for healing...also Ps. 103:3..He heals us from all our diseases. God has healed my back supernaturally, and a really bad right handed carpel tunnel (could not move it) so, nothing is to hard, or impossible for Our All Mighty, Matchless God. Now, I know what it is and other suffer I will also pray you'll, for the Bible state, that you do for others God will do for you........God bless and thanks for this site to see other!.........Love

Tried to e-mail Michelle Curtis and I am having problems with my server/ So an open response: Chemical sensitivity is the opposite of an allergy. My doctors over last 20 years since i was injured call it damage= to the mucous membrane. Mine was a traumatic event. some get injured more gradually. The IGE blood test can help confirm this. It is so important to find a doctor that recognized a disease that affect over 3 million and is willing to treat. Occupational asthma is treated with oxygen. i started with 1 liter and now am on 2 and if in an exposure it has been increased temporarily; ionizing ozone producing air purifiers harm also ozone producing concentrators. i travel 150 miles to one docotr and 90 to another. FDA does not recognize us and i am hoping that them regulating tobacco will break the deadlock on this. Even one is not exposed to tobocca , the legal canumdrum exists as the research at NIH on toxins and chemicals was done as part of the tobacco research. Digestive tract is also mucous membranes and I avoid food with the chemicals that bother me. I have found that a good live many germ pro-biotic helps a lot, I think the chemicals kill the bacteria, maybe why so many products are now sold. But, I find i need the one that has several of the h=good bacteria and i get mine from Mountain Home and its a little expensive. tried some cheaper kind and didn't seem to help. eating a good plain yogurt helps,, but one without added chemicals. i have learned to use plain yogurt as a substitute for many milk products in cooking. watch for daibietes coming on as an underlying problem . i got m sugar under control with cinnamon pills and salmon omega 3. But, I am not a c=doctor and what works for me may not be the right thing for anyone else, so its important to work with a doctor c=that can watch over you as you 'try' different things. I never take any pill , etc. without letting doctors know, etc. Fighting infection can be a problem especially in the sinus is=f this was an inhalation injury. The windows surgery helped a lot that i had and has reduced this and my doctors have me use bactroban ointment , just a little in the nose daily to kill the bad bacteria before it gets inside. saline washes help also. Again finding one without chemicals is difficult If you have sensitivity to formaldehyde, MSG, and aspartame are formaldehyde producers and milk processed with formaldehyde is common. FDA allows the producers to not wash it out before bottling our milk. You can get organic now or find a farmer and pasteurize your own at home. Again ask your DOCTOR. I am only repeating from my experiences over the last 20 years and what many good doctors have advised me to do. Linda Joy Adams

Hi just came across your site.
I am quite isolated in uk and dont have contacts with others suffereing same thing.
I havent worked for some years but am involved with music and art but its the isolation here thats biggest problem.
I guess it would be anywhere really with mcs.
I also have food allergies which can alienate me from others socially.
I was thinking of a trip to States as have been in contact with a very helpful person by phone for some years but so far haven`t found the courage to try it -also the plane trip worries me!
But its good to see there are groups like this.
Thanks mark

I've just purchased a foreclosed home and have an opportunity to make it as clean and safe as possible before I move in. I will be purchasing a new bed and couch etc. Do you know of any place or person that I can call upon for questions along the way? I am putting in a complete air conditioning and air & water purifying system. I need a clean up crew that might understand severe chemical sensitivites.

I am now dying in a terribly polluted home. I have severe ashma and anti-trypsin defeciency, a genetic liver/lung disease.

Should you know of a place where I can go to for questions along the way on our new home I would certainly appreciate it.

Very sad, the guy that doesn't recognize the millions suffering from MCS of any kind. I was not unsymapathetic to those who mentioned that things bothered them beofre i was injured. Read the White paper done and published by Dr Rebecca Bascom M D in the ealy nineties. Extreme exposures can traumatically burn off the mucous membrance. In others long term less extreme exposure can burn it gradually. This is a 'protective' barrier. Within hours of my injury, my husband walked in wearing his cologne and i said "why are you wearing bug spray" I smelled no wonderful scent. To that 'gentleman' It is not just a scent. It feels like the mist or particles are burning and they in a medical sense are. No different than you put your hand on a hot stove. You are causing undue distress to anyone who sufferes from MCS. In my case, an asthmatic attack. And the other complications as i have already posted. It is hard to understand unless you have it. In this world of toxins and chemicals, the wrong ones can get together and cause harm. Doctors and tests are available to try and sort out which ones to avoid. Some have it as a mild case, some moderate and some severe.

I am concerned about some of the products you suggest. I go to website, cosmetics database, where you can enter products or ingredients to see the level of toxicity, and some of your suggestions have level of toxicity.

I would also like to see some homemade recipies for house hold and beauty product substitutes.

Alert: my family doctor would not let me have flu shot today because it used a formaldehyde wash in t he shot. no warning but was listed in ingredients did inform the nurse on he insert that there was no latex in the part the nurse would touch of course the usual warning was there for those allergic to eggs. Is this in al shots now like the mercury. Flu shots have usually been helpful but sometimes I did have a toxic reaction. A couple of months ago I had a severe toxic reaction and was documented with blood and urine tests and doctors were puzzled. I had to have teeth pulled and now I wonder if the novocaine contained formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is one of the chemicals that causes problems for the chemically sensitive. For me the whole body gets inflammed kidneys start to fail and t-4 cells increase blood clots etc and immune system is suppressed and causes bacterial infections causing the need for antibiotics. and white cells get granulated on contined exposure the reason some used to call chemical sensitivity "chemical aids". where is the FDA? I actually went into stage 3 kidney failure over it. So beware/ I have never learned what to do from such an exposure except drink lots of purified water, rest and I drink a cayenne pepper tea rather tan take over the counter pain medicines. Anyone know how long formaldehyde has been used in shots and vaccines?

my little puppy skippy died 10/14/08. i love him so much. he would always runaway and play with other kids in the neighborhood and was known at the highschools. he had been everywhere, he would always come home. i was just about to go to school and he had got out of the house. my little man ran off again. at school all day i thought about him for some reason espeacially today. i got home and my dad told me that my baby got hit by a car. he was running with the other dogs through the fence up and down. and then ran out in to the street. My dad had told me that a couple walking(ofcourse knew him cause he went everywhere) came to the door. my brother had to go and get my little puppy and take him home. my little booger died instantly as he got hit. I cried so hard when i got home. My dad told me that he had put him in a bag and that we will burry him when my mom got home. i was devastated. that little guy always sat at my feet at night while i was sleeping. i miss that. now my old golden retriever is sad that her buddy isnt here to keep her active anymore. my dad gave me skippys collar. i havent let go of it since. my dog loved to chase squirrels. so we burried him at his favorite tree to chase squirrels at. my golden retriever (cloe) went outside this morning. and i went with her while she went to the bathroom and i sat at his grave crying.i talked to him. and cloe came up and could smell his scent. i went back inside and i watched cloe, outside, rolling around as if skippy was right there with her playing with her. she was rolling and rolling. and the dog behind us was looking at me like "where is he" "whats going on." i will miss my baby boy forever. cause i have so many funny memories. i still cant stop crying. when i look into cloe's eyes i see his little face looking at me. and last night i kept thinking he was there at my feet, but he wasnt. its so different.i love him soooooo much.<3 ( skippy was a rat terrier and i have had him for 5 years)

Guess I did the last post wrong. So again, I just wanted to put my 2 cents in about the children and the incredible amounts of chemicals they are exposed to. Three times a year I have to test about 200 elementary children in our school district. I have to sometimes go outside after a test to try and air out. The smell from perfumes, hair gel, deodorant, and very over- fabric- softenered(new word -LOL)is crazy! If parents only knew what we know. Their little immune systems must be sick. --Gina

Hello,
My name is Rodrigo and I am in the same mission as most of you guys here in this forum/comment page. I have seen a lot of people around me being a victim of these nasty harsh chemicals products sold out there. We need to STOP POISONING OUR CHILDREN... starting with cleaning products we use at our houses ... #1 cause of major illness like cancer, asthma and etc ....you name it .... I would more than glad to share some wellness with whomever wants ... I finally found a way to completely convert my house green becoming totally, spending less money than I was spending at traditional supermarket and bringing more health into my house.... email me if you like to know more info...

Let's not leave a deteriorated world to our children. BE GREEN AND SAVE MONEY !

Thanks

This is great! I have been sick for at least 8 years. It is so good to at least know that others are experiencing the same things that I am. I am so going to try a few of the things like the large doses of vit. C and the detox bath regiment. I already have a fragrance free house. I know wonder about a lot of other things in my house. I will be making changes. I will keep you updated. I bought some good shampoo that doesnt have SLS from health food store.I also am using baking soda for toothpaste. I am also using salt crystal deoderant and am so pleasantly surprised that it keeps me drier and works better than any of the unscented regular kinds did. I will continue that for sure.

5 year and counting since my first episode od getting sick wahing clothese. It was the Chlorine. Then I would get sick when showered or washed my hair. After that it was deorrant and other people and my work place.

We are a fragrance free household now. I have to wear a respirator with hepa filters anytime I go out. And yes, it can happen to anybody. My doctor thinks it may have come from low dose long term exposure to commercial painting products in a badly ventilated office contractors office. We will keep coping and telling everybody that will listen about this invisible disease

I'm very glad to have found this website! I live in the Milwaukee, WI area and can't find any support groups or other people with MCS to connect with. It's very hard to find a home or job where I don't have to be exposed to chemicals like bleach/cleaners, gas fumes, perfumes/colognes, etc. Are there any groups for single people with MCS to meet- it would be nice to find someone who understands and also needs to live and work away from chemicals. I do childcare at home and need to find more work I can do at home to help support myself. Does anyone else work at home? I'd love to hear from other people with MCS. Thanks!

Hi Jackie,

Thank you so much for your website and for your honesty in describing your life with MCS....I had been praying to remember Dr. Robbins name and address, and then, there it was on your website!! I had sinus surgery 3 years ago due to benign polyps that were assumed to have come from chemials or mold??? It has made me much worse, I can't stand the smell of anything...and my sense of smell is overly 'hypersentive' now...I can barely work or find anywhere to live. Old places smell old, I can smell former tenants smoke, cats and dogs, glade air freshener plug-ins..etc. New places are outgassing formaldehyde....but, in the long run, they are better. If I can air them out enough to begin living there. Thank you for sharing your faith in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. I know He has a plan for me to survive this, and not only to survive it, but to have 'life' in the midst of such disabiling circumstances. I will call and make an appointment with Dr. Robbins ASAP. I need help, and I am tiring of being treated like a sick, neurotic by my family who refuses to learn about MCS and have some understanding.....Praise God for other believers like you willing to fellowship with others who are suffering...

Hello Everyone, I bought a bath tub mat a couples a weeks agon never realizing that it was a rubber product and it the smell of it really caused me a lot of trouble. My MCS problem is bloating in my left lung, don't know why the left but every time I am exposed to a strong odor that is where I am affected. I am getting off the subject. I have done everything possible to get rid of the odor without success. Today I went to WalMart and checked there bath tub mats and found one that doesn't have any odor at all. The product is called Mainstays home cushioned Bath Mat. It is made for Walmart. Sooooooooooo if any of you have a problem with the rubber odor here's a bath tub mat that doesn't smell.

I am 18 years old and i got MCS from a chemical burn on my head from hair dye and a pesticide poisoning a week before that. I got it when i was 16 and have been suffering since. I feel ill a lot of the times, i cant even be on a computer longer than an hour without feeling that cataplexy feeling. Although i must say i have made remarkable progress with a Naturopath. I am convinced that in about a year or two i should be back to normal. Doctors have laughed at me, and tell me its just allergies. It makes me so angry because they have no idea how much pain i have gone through, I couldnt go to prom or graduate high school. I really recommend everyone at least gets a live blood cell analysis test, the results wee alarming, Anyway, i hope everyone the best of health. And never be embarrassed to share your voice, how many more people have to get sick or die thanks to toxic injuries? No one deserves this.

Greetings. We are in need of help for the following situation. My brother was employed for some time in the state of Maryland by Lowe's Home Improvement as a night manager. During overnight shifts, he was responsible for supervising a team of employees during the flat-stacking of huge pallets of lumber and such. None of the employees, including my brother, was allowed to leave the building because of security restrictions. After a year of this activity, my brother became increasingly ill. During a phone call that my brother had with another Lowe's night department manager, it was revealed that there had been inadequate ventilation in the work area, as mandated by Lowe's Policy and Procedure Manual on "Energy Management". Security restrictions during the night demand confinement to these specific spaces and 'no air passage' is a condition of the workplace. Employees are locked inside from eleven p.m. until six a.m. The forklifts used to move and lift the lumber pallets are powered by propane gas; the lumber itself has been cited as hazardous due to arsenic content. The burning of propane gas creates clouds of carbon monoxide, as well as other noxious elements; other merchandise being handled were the fertilizers and pesticides, which at that time, was moved by employees who wore no protective gear. Nor was anyone educated as to the potential hazards of contact with the chemicals contained in the merchandise.The drivers of the forklifts are also subjected to driving within the confines of eighteen wheelers to move merchandise from the trucks into the stores. Employees constantly complained of headaches and other ailments; on one occasion, when the team was taken ill, my brother opened the entry door so they could step outside and breathe fresh air. As a result, he was 'written up' and warned of further discipline by a district manager.

After months of unexplained illness and unproductive medical treatment, my brother collapsed on the job and was taken to the emergency room. Finally, after enumerable tests, he was diagnosed with brain damage from exposure to toxic chemicals and carbon monoxide. He then filed for Workman's Compensation. The hearing was held on September 28th, 2007 and he received a letter of denial on October 4th, which offered no explanation or even comment. I firmly believe that Lowe's has discarded him and perhaps many others as so much rubble because they know he is ill and believe him unable to fight back. His case for Workman's Compensation is now in appeal and will be heard before a judge.

However, my brother's medical problems are severe, and the prognosis for even long-term, low-grade exposure to these elements can be frightening. Some conditions are chronic and said to be permanent. The apathy of the legal system and the antipathy of Lowe's, for whom he worked hard, has been daunting; in addition, he has been unable to work and fears further complications with the illness. The idea that he can help those who are still employed by Lowe's, and those others who may have been sickened by similar conditions, is an inspiration to him to keep fighting for his health. Any insights or advice the forum can offer will be much appreciated by us, and passed on to those others in need. Thanking you in advance, we look forward to your response.

Jackie,
Thanks so much for the website. Although I have known for quite some time that I have MCS, I always wondered why me? When I read your story, and saw how many similarities it had to mine, I realized right then why it was me. When I read your poem, I cried so hard-it is exactly how I feel. I want to remember myself as I was and be that woman again. I too am slowly getting there. My faith is the only thing that has pulled me through this and I thank God every single day for my life, even as it is. Even misery in life is still a life and pain is a form of love that teaches us things we would not have known otherwise. I think of my pain as messages from God. If I don't listen, I get sicker, if I do listen, I get better. I can't say it's nice to know others have this, but a kindred spirit is hard to find and I appreciate that you took the time to make this website and help others with their MCS.
God Bless You,
Susan

Hi everyone. I have some good news for myself. I am not rid of the MCS to all the smells and things that I had mention before but I am in the process of being pain free in my body. A doctor thought that I was having never pain in reguad to my MCS, which by the way she didn't think I was crazy which was a first, she perscribe Gabapentin, genric to Neuraton (sp) which is slowly taken care of the body, teeth, mouth, throat pain that I have suffered with for 3 years. She started me on 300mg 1x a day but have had to increase it to 600mg 4x's a day which I am sure will have to be increased as I am still having to take 2 Loratab a day but I am making progress on getting off of it, I was taking 4x's a day. In case you don't know that is codine/tylenol. That's not good. Just wanted to let you know that I am doing better in some areas of my life but the fragrances, odors, ect. are still number ONE in my life and can't be around people, crowds, ect. because of the fragrances they use. I have hope that one day I might be healed of MCS but you know God promised that he will heal me but I don't know which side of heaven it will happen. Like a little story that I read about a family praying for their love one to be healed and they tolded their pastor that God didn't answer their prayers. His responce was, "Yes he answered your prayers because your love one is healed in heaven, he just didn't answer your prayer the way you wanted it to be." So this how I look at it God will heal me in his own time and in his own place. God is my strength as I go through this each day. There is a lot to be thankful for, I don't have MCS as bad as many of you do. I can get out of the house but I just have to time it just right when I go to stores and that's when they first open. Just have to avoid crowds and people with fragrances of any kind. I am thankful that I haven't been called for jury duty and pray that I never will be for I might have a difficult time getting out of it if I have to get a doctors letter stating that I can't because I can't be arount crowds. I think I am just beginning to rattle around here so I guess I will sign off now, but I am so glad for this site.

HI Friends,
I work as an RN, and I still suffer when I'm around chemicals, such as scented sprays that they use in public restrooms to cover odors. I get so ill, I nearly throw up. Strong colognes give me headaches and I can almost taste the cologne. I feel best when I can get some fresh air. I would say I've been reacting to these chemical smells for around 4 years.
I'm glad I'm not alone. I Just wanted to say HI.
I think the most harsh scents are detergents, colognes, cleaning sprays, scented candles, potpourri.
FRESH AIR!! yes, jeanie

I learnt a lot about the danger of (artificial fragrance in)fabric softener from your web.Now I start to educate people about their health's risk. Early in March 2007 I called and emailed Unilever office in Thailand after going through their webside.I had never get any response from them.Now one year later I contacted the Unilever head office in Great Britain.Quite surprisingly I did receive a reply back within one hour,saying that it might take up to three weeks to answer my concern from the experts of their company.Twenty-four days later I emailed to remind them.NO answer.Four weeks away I tried again,they reply me with the same message(thank you for your message we will get back to you personally as soon as possible. In some case it may takes up to three weeks).To me what they said in their websites just propaganda cover up their image. I write you today to request your advice what should be done in response to their ignorant. Thanks! Best regards. Prasit.

Hi Everyone, I signed in with a different email in case anyone whats to be part of my ministry that God has opened up for me to do since I came down with MCS. I thought my world had come to an end and didn't know how I was going to sever God when I couldn't be involved with church activites, like visiting the people in the nursing home and shut ins with my husband because I couldn't be around all the fragrancs, odors and other toxins that cause me to be sick. Bot God is good he wasn't going to let me idle he has opened up doors that would have never happen if I had stayed well. I started a postcard ministry that I send 35-40 cards to the shut-in and nursing home residents, then I started sending to my church staff, prayer groups, then God impress on me last April to minister to the military men and women that has a connection with our church but didn't know just what to do. Then in September I thought I'd get their email address and started sending to them, now I send to the college students, all of my friends in my email address book and have pick up others here and there. In September I started makeing a video or photo's that I have taken setting them to Christian music and praise songs. Sometimes I add a verse to it also. I have an Easter one that I will be sending out in the next few days. If anyone is interested in receiving these you can get in touch with me at the email address. Put in you subject line "Want e-postcards and videos" because all the emails will go into my junk mail.
Here's Bible Scripture that I want to shae with you which has become my verse since I was struck down with MCS:

When He has tried me, I shall come forth as gold. My foot has help me fast to His path; I have kept His way and not turned aside. I have not departed from the command of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more that necessary food.

I've been researching MCS for a few years now, and find it to be really similar to aspartame (and other artificial sweeteners) poisoning. I was wondering who uses artificial sweeteners and has MCS? I used to drink 3 two liters a day of Diet Coke. I also know that many of the Gulf War Vets who have the Gulf War Syndrome and MCS also drank the free diet coke that was shipped to Iraq and sat in the hot sun and the aspartame turns to formaldehyde in the body. It's a VERY DANGEROUS chemical and I believe aspartame is what caused my MCS. I would love to hear from others who have MCS and use or used artificial sweeteners.

Hello everyone! I wanted to pass on some great information that I have learned the hard way. I have MCS and 2 years ago it was horrible! I could not be around people, go shopping, eat anything except organic foods that I made myself, use soap, etc. etc. My life was miserable and I was always in severe pain from the horrible headaches. Then I read about a woman who cured her MCS by taking massive doses of Vitamin C. I read about Vitamin C and decided to try it. I began taking aprox.52, 000mg over a 12-hour period (divided up into 4,000mg an hour) with distilled water that I make with my distiller. I do not recommend any other type of water other than distilled. Even bottled water isn't safe and doesn't have to meet the gov. standards of tap water. Water in plastic jugs is not safe. The chemicals leach into the water. Anyway, I began to heal! It was a miracle! I then threw the Gerson Therapy ( gersontherapy dot org)into the mix, and it was amazing! I also added at least 15 minutes of sunshine or sunlamp therapy to the mix for vital Vitamin D, and walks and weight lifting. I'm not healed yet, but have came a long ways in a short period of time, and wanted to share this with you all since I have improved by at least 50% from what I used to be. May God be with you all!

Thank you for your very informative website. Having gone through the many years of suffering from chemical/fragrance intolerence, and the writings you gave, I can recognize so much of what I'm going through that has limited my life and activities. I long for the the 'old' me.
I will be seeing a specicalist for environmental illness/chemical/frgrance severe intolerance. I seem to spend 3/4 of my time searching out what has triggered another disabilitating bout of intolerance! It makes me so ill that often I have to go to bed. And, many times, I've had to seek emergency medical help. Your 'Poem' 'hit home' immensely for me, as 'it IS home' for me.
I will printed out much literature from your site and will be 'armed' with material and info for the next physician I see. But, this time, I will go with 'hope' in finding treatment that will give me relief and hopefully give me some 'freedom' in every day life! God Bless you and all your endeavors in dedicating so much of your time to this cause.

I was having one of those nights, when you get that tug at your heart of a loss that you have suffered. I have a beautiful little poodle name Anjelette she went to the beauty parlor yesterday so she looked just beautiful. As I looked at her I couldn't help to think of my sweetness, my little Mignette she looked liked Anjelette in her prime. So I visited my favorite site and found a link to your song, it touched my heart so much. I could tell that it was sung with love and from your heart and said everything that I would want to say about Mignette. I lost her Nov 21, 2002 at 5pm, three months to the day I found her suffering one morning with a large tumor on the side of her head. Three months was all that it took for such a loving little poodle to go through two surgeries, chemo, stroke and them auto immune that did take her down. She wanted to live and she did try but it was just too much. I read you site about Dusty and I have struggled with my choice to fight for Mignette's life - did I do the right thing? I just loved her so much and still grieve for her to this day, even now with a new beautiful puppy that is just what God sent to me to help me move forward.
I was not there when she died, I was on my way and only five minutes away. This still haunts me.
This is what I go through from time to time and I want you to know that your song has helped me and you writings about Dusty has helped as well. I wish you much happiness and love in your life. Thank you for what you have shared with the world.

I have been suffering with MCS going on 3 years now. Fragrance,odors, rubber tires, cooking odor,seasonings, wood smoke, fabric softners in the air you name it and it will most likely cause me problems.I haven't been able to go to church or social grathings. I have to stay home and still have problems. I am affected with pain starting with my teeth,mouth on down into the stomach which this pain isn't stopped will go through my entire body. I am on Lortab 4 times a day which helps with that pain for now. It is like acid reflex in the reverse. When I get around people, places, crowds that have fragraces or odors my left adominal side will blow up just like a balloon and can get very very bad with the pressure. I have this feeling every day and all day long. The only way I get relief from the pressuer is taking Lorazepam which helps with the bloating by relaxing it but not entirely. I find laying down helps so I spend a lot of time in the bedroom reclining. I have been told I am having panic attacks, depression and the primary doctors just don't listen. I found an allergest that deal with MCS who diagnose me but I had to quit taking the allergy shots to build up my allergies resitance to my other allergies because my PC would't give me the shots anymore. The allgerest wasn't in town he had told me if you could get the vegtation under control I would be able to handle the MCS better. I am so tired of dealing with this and being isolated from everything. I can't even travel to see my grandchildren because of the fragrances that are in their houses. They do come to visit once a year and use my products. I just wonder if there is anyone else that is affected in this same way as I am. I know others are affected differently.

Thank you so much for this website, I was really beginning to feel alone with this illness. Approximately 6 months ago I had an allergic reaction to a facial which landed me in hospital & then a few weeks later my partner & I went up to inspect our new house that we were building & they were spraying gloss paint everywhere. Upon inhalation I immediately began to feel extemely sick and I guess you can say from that point onwards, my life hasn't been the same since!! I am now unable to work & confined to the home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week because if I step outside I have intense reactions to all sorts of things like car tyres, exhaust fumes, petrol, perfume, grass etc etc. And not to mention inside the home, we've had to dispose of all cleaning products and resort to using bi-carb soda for everything. I have managed to find 3 doctors who know of the illness, however they all have different theories on what causes MCS. Is it a malfunction of the liver, the immune system or the nervous system or all three!! I'm so confused and would love to find a way out of this hell without jusy being told to avoid chemicals, which is just totally unavoidable in todays society. I do not wish to be a hermit for the rest of my life. I would give anything to get my life back to atleast some degree or normal existance so I can't interact with others again. I refuse to believe that there is no cure for this thing. So, if anybody has any helpful advice or knows of anything I can do to help myself besides avoidance, please will you email me...I'm desperate!!!!

I didn't think it was normal to grieve so deeply for a pet as I have grieved for my little Bichon Frise Nicole who passed recently.

The hole she has left in my heart and the loss my son and I are feeling is too great to put into words.

What breaks our hearts in this moment is that our other little girl, Cleo, my other Bichon Frise, is grieving the loss of her sister as well.

I am grateful I found your site and now I don't feel strange to be grieving as much as I am. I can see it's only normal.

I was diagnosed with MCS/EI in June 2005. Your story is so eerily similar to mine. I was very happy in life, with my husband and my two jobs - then I could no longer function. I would fall asleep at work and couldn't even answer basic questions. I have gone from an outgoing very social person to a hermit. I used to think people like me were crazy - but they are not. Vanilla scented dryer sheets used to be my favorite. I now use tin foil rolled up into a ball shiny side out. I have a sense of smell now like that of a bloodhound :-)) Anyway thanks for this site and I will continue to try to educate people about the poison in their products. I used to think that I didn't like cleaning (especially the bathtub). Now that I use toxic free products I don't mind at all. Looking back I was probably getting a bad reaction but didn't realize it. All the best to you.

going through. I have had MCS since about 2002, and have lost my best friend, my husband, of 17 years. He was my champion and helped me to understand what my illness is, by doing research on it on the internet. I think when we first get sick with this, it is so hard to cope, because we
do not understand what is happening. As we learn and grow through problems and finding solutions to
how to live with it, we can get healthier, and hopefully reclaim some of the ground that has been taken from us. Educating others about MCS is the only way we can beat this thing!!!
Thanks! Ruth Ann

Thank you for sharing your story about Dusty--and your song is beautiful. It made me cry. I lost my grandpa kitty Spike this week. He lived a long life (almost 19 years) and got kidney failure. We were able to spend alot of time with him and he told us in his own way that it was his time to go. We too had our wonderful vet help us take his suffering away. May God continue to bless you as you are a blessing to all those who read your words and listen to your beautiful musical tribute to your dear little dog. I know our Spike is playing with your Dusty on that Rainbow Bridge. It will be a wonderful day when we all cross that bridge to take our little children with fur home to heaven. Thank you! You are wonderful! (((HUGS)))

I just recently found this website(petloss.com)due to the fact that I gave my best friend in the world back to his Lord this past Friday. King LOuie XVI was a beautiful brown tabby pure bred Maine Coon cat with the biggest, greenest shiney eyes Ive ever seen on an animal. Everyone that saw him commented on his eyes.I rescued him 10 years ago from what I found out to be a Kitty Mill and as a result he was not vaccinated properly as a kitten and exsposed to F I P.Most cats die w/in 3 years of contracting this virus. But in some rare cases it may remain dormant for years. That was the case for Louie. He was healthy as a horse the whole 10 years I had him up until about 11 months ago when strange litle things , colds, stuffy nose, watery,runny eyes, lack of appetite, unusual fatigue and just about anything else you can think of. We were back and forth to the vet and ran up a bill of well over 1000.00 dollars,but that did not matter to me. I had to get him well. I was told he had allergies and it was just something we would have to deal with anf treat at certain times of the year. I thought I was going to loose him about a year ago but with all the love, determination, encouragement, patience and syringe feedings 5 times a day for 10 days alonfg with a battery of antibiotics and stereoids I managed to get him back up on his feet. He has been his normal self for tha last year then about 10 days ago he started leaving my bed to sleep somewhere else. Louie was a strickly indoor cat or I think now he would have run off and died somewhere alone. That was my Lou, always protecting, always proclaiming his dominance in our home, and always the sweetest, most gentle and affectionate cat Ive ever seen. I m 35 years old and was not allowed pets as a child. My parents were clean freaks and from the school of "Its an animal and animals are messy,exspensive and have no place inside a house" so when I moved out into my first apartment I got a pet. Little did I know I also got the sweetest gift the Lord would ever give me.

If this is a Christian website, then it would make sense to have a page for people to list churches that have perfume free sections or perfume free services. Duh! There is no website listing even rumored churches to have this, yet I know there are a few churches out there doing this. How hard would it be to set up a page for visitors to name churches they have found that have perfume free something?

Even a heresay-based like like that would be a million times more useful than the arrogant lack of information we are currently faced with. I gave up on going to church years ago, and will not return until I can find one with a perfume free section where I won't suffer.

I came upon your story about Dusty when I was looking for things on pet loss. I am so sorry for your loss. I know Dusty had a WONDERFUL life while you had him.I know its been a while but I know you will never forget him. I am writing because I wanted to share about my loss.I lost my precious Dashchund "SNOOPY" just last night 11-21-07. He had a allergy problem and did what they call reverse sneezing. He did it probably 2-4 times weekly. It would shake his little head horribly. Sunday night around 1:00am he woke me doing it but he yelped loudly this time.I immediatly got up and checked on him and when he tried to come to me he fell on his side.I immediatly thought a stroke. Our vet was NOT open so I called another one they said keep him still until morn. I did so he was at vet when they opened. They called and said he had ruptured a disk in his neck and needed surgery. BUT the thing was they could not do it because it was so bad so they sent us to Oklahoma City to a wonderful vet there and she did his surgery. He pulled out of that ok and would have survived and been ok but he started having a high fever. As my husband took him to city he was having seizure after seizure but we didn't realize thats what it was cause just his little head shook a bit. To make a long long story a bit shorter, he had more seizures, he arrested 2 times and also after CT they said he had 10 -15 strokes in that short of time. They told us he had menigitis and he probably wouldnt make it. This all started with a sneeze or so we thought. We had NO clue he was ill. He showed NO signs of anything BEFORE any of this occured. He and my others are all on Heartgard and Frontline Plus. They have there yearly shots and checkups. We are honest to goodness responsible pet owners.We LOVE our pets as our family members. We are still in shock. I have cried so much since Monday afternoon. I cannot understand how this could have happened to our baby. He was so precious, your story of Dusty reminds me of Snoopy and my others, Molly and Buddy.They also are Dashchunds. Not even 2 months ago we had our Lab "Blacky" put to sleep. He was amost 16 years old we adopted him, and actually we rescued all of our pets. He was getting old and had arthritis and he started to suffer and we felt it was best to let him go. This doesn't even seem real to us we have 2 fresh graves in our yard and it just breaks our hearts. People do not understand what animals do for us humans. We do have children but one is grown with children and youngest is still at home but these are our babys also. I just want people to know that Heartgard and Frontline Plus are NOT 100% foolproof of getting a tick diease. WE thought they were but we were so wrong. We also lost another dog "Sissie" to this tick diease in 1999. Blacky the oldest one we lost on Sept 29th-07 he had it but was treated and survived. Now they are saying that this tick diease can lay dormant for years and thats what killed our "Snoopy". I won't quit using these products because they do help but people need to not have that false sense of security that there pets are protected. It broke my heart and I cried the whole time I read your story on Dusty. Snoopy also had lots of names too. Isn't funny how we do that. I would NOT change having my pets for anything in the world. But I wish it just didn't hurt like it does. God Bless you and THANK YOU accepting my long letter. I guess I really needed to tell someone who has been thru this already who I knew would listen and understand. I hope you have a BLESSED THANKSGIVING.

Thank you so much for the story of Dusty. I lost my baby Feisty on 11/9/07 and my grief is still very new. Feisty was a black and white Lhasa. He had the cutest white face with a little stripe up his nose. He had a little underbite so he always looked like he was smiling. I miss him terribly. He lived to be 14 years old, almost to the day. Throughout this time I went through some very hard times, and he was always there. He had gone through some health scares but always pulled through. Although he was slowing down and we knew his liver was failing slightly, he was a happy boy up to the end. He was very ill one night with vomiting. I stayed up with him all night and took him to the vet the next day. They thought maybe he had just eaten something that didn't agree with him. But the vet called the next morning and said Feisty was on a downhill slide. I asked if I could bring him home one last time, and the vet said that would be okay, that he would give him some pain medication so he would feel well enough to spend some time with me. However, when I arrived at the vet, he was already going. It happened very fast. The vet carried him in and I could tell he was ready to go. I held him for a few minutes, talked to him, telling him it was okay to go. He took a few breaths and was gone. The vet was so good, saying how special he was and how Feisty had wanted to wait for me, so I could be there when he went to sleep. I stayed for a long time, petting him, loving him, trying to memorize everything about him. It has been a hard week, but I am comforted knowing that Feisty never had a bad day. We took him with us on every excursion, spoiled him shamelessly, and never said an angry word to him. It was not necessary, he was such a sweet boy. Again, thank you for your story. It helps to know that I am not crazy for loving and missing Feisty as much as I am. Jeannine

I, too, have been diagnosed with MCS..however mine is from air fresheners, fabric softeners, scented candles and perfumes. No one seems to understand me when I tell them I am having a violent coughing, gagging attack from their smell either on their clothes or in public bathrooms and people's homes! I feel so embarrassed as my cough starts small and then gets to an outright "is she dying degree or does she have TB???"..I have decided to pursue this in court and I would like to hear from anyone else who would be interested in filing a class action suit against the manufacturers of these toxic products.
Please come forward with me and win the battle for cleaner air!

This is Cindy again, I hadn't checked into your site for a while. I just wanted to thank you for contacting me and asking me if it was okay to display a direct link to my site on your site!
I am also so sorry that so many inconciderate people check in here and have absolutely nothing concideration to any of you nor your visitors. Please don't let them discourage you in anyway. I to get some really stupid emails and offers that are way out of line. If I was you I would talk to someone who can help you set it up so your guestbook is free of all the nonsense. I had a professional set mine up and it does help alot.
My thoughts and prayers are still with all of you. I thought of many of you when I did a trade show for my products. I was doing a demonstration for the window cloth and the envirocloth. They are microfiber cloths that are lined with 99 silver, as many of the cloths are now. For my demonstration I spray a small amount of hairspray on a mirror and show how you just use water and these cloths to clean any glass or shiney surface without the use of chemicals.
During one of my demonstrations I lady who has this problem with chemicals was standing real close. She had to walk away because of the smell of the hairspray. It was such a small amount and it really made her feel awful.
Her children stuck around and told me about how bad she gets with so many scents and chemicals. I apologized over and over again, but they said that she was already feeling ill from walking by some fragrances a section or two away from my booth. Later she stopped back and I was able to apologize to her personally. She said that it was ok and that most people were not that considerate to even say they were sorry.
It horrifies me to think our society has gotten to the point where they think that by spraying a room, a place, or even spraying themselves is in anyway a smart thing to do. This many years of evolution and we still havent learned. Most just don't care. Clean is not suppose to have a smell. People please think before you buy anything with chemicals in it. This includes perfumes. Have a little more self confidence in yourself. TAke a shower or bath and like your own God given Scent.
I know that hairspray is being removed from my demonstrations. Butter works, but after doing it several times, the cloths make the suface actually repel butter. So think when you use something on yourself, your more than likely using a chemical that is going to attract bad smells, dirt, dust and god knows whatelse to you.
Also please remember these dear people who are sensitive to all this stuff....
Spammer please go somewhere else, leave our little place alone.
God bless you and all your vistors

I suffer from many different disabilities which cause me a great deal of pain on a daily basis. As a single mother, with the help of pain medication, I forced myself to work as a waitress for several years. Cigarette smoke wasn't my biggest culprit; It was the women who felt they needed to douse their selves with, well, WAY TOO MUCH perfume/cologne...whatever!!
I had a difficult time taking orders and was thought to be rude because I would have to walk away choking and/or gagging. I have all different types of triggers. I do my best at buying the unscented versions of our everyday necessary products, but come on, I can't even enjoy some of my favorite magazines; The little perfume samples have made me very ill for weeks at a time!!! Don't even get me started on the perfume pushers in the finer department stores; I feel like screaming, "Lady, drop the perfume, and nobody gets hurt!" (I can't run.) I could go on & on, but even some of my closest friends do NOT understand so thank you for letting me vent on this site.

Using and spiteful OVER use of fabric softener/scented dryer sheets left to run in dryers all day and night seven days a week should be illegal, especially in close proximity residential communities like mobile home parks?

No one should be told they have to put up with feeling sick from this toxic poison in their own bedroom breathing environment. I have no a/c and I rely on window fans to bring in the fresh air at night as I sleep. But all I get is toxic disturbance by these evil neighbors who are dying to get a rise out of me, or possibly destroy me? I'm told they are doing nothing wrong, though it's destroying my health!??

If anyone knows who I can turn to for help, what my rights are, and what areas have 'sane' legislators that make fabric softener/scented dryer sheets left to run in the dryer between the disturbance of the peace hours illegal, especially, please post the info here.

Off topic, but another issue that should be considered as disturbance of peace with air pollution after hours is smoking outside, or blowing/allowing smoke to drift out the window into the neighbors window. So there should be no smoking or perfuming the air during disturbance of peace hours. People have to have a break sometime, and that is not asking for much!

Excuse me... If my cyberstalkers have followed me here... you won't win, I'm going to find a way to end my suffering!

Any caring people, thanks in advance for your response(s)...

Hi, it has been awhile since I check in to this site. I am still cleaning houses and still a consultant for Norwex. If anyone is interested in the use of no chemicals, Norwex's goal is to get back to the basics. WATER... The window cloth is a miracle cloth. I use my enviro cloth to wash a window with water and use my window cloth to wipe over the wet clean window and it shines the window up better than any chemical you can get..
Today I just went to a family's house and cleaned for them. She was hurt on the fourth of July by being bucked of a horse. She broke 14 vertabrae in her spine. She is luck to be alive let alone even to be walking.. My sister and I went there to just clean up her house so she didn't over do herself. We charged nothing. I used my red envirocloth and my window cloth and water and cleaned her whole house.... NO Chemicals
People who are sensitive really need to be aware of all the dangers out there. Just because it says it is safe please please do some research.
I am concidering moving to Alabama, Georgia area to sell my products. They are fantastic. Like I said in my previous comment, my whole life has changed for the better, since I have been useing norwex.. Any Interested parties please contact me, I would love to help ease your life. Chemicals hurt us more than we know.

I'm glad that I stumbled across your web-page. I have FM and knew I was moderately sensitive to strong perfumes, but my father and great-grandmother are/were both more sensitive to scented products, as well as to certain flowers, etc. Your site has really made me rethink my FM and its possible causes..and it's given me hope. I've been beating myself up about not going to church more often- it seems that when I go I start to feel horrible. For a person with chemical sensitivity, church is probably one of the hardest places to go: with hairspray, lotions, perfumes, talc, etc. all in close quarters! BIG THANKS for your efforts!

Thanks much for who you are and what you do! I am MCS. 70 years old, and have been poisoned heavily by benzene forty years now! Benzene is in almost everything today! We now make pressure-cast plastic parts for the bee-hives and the insecticides used in the hives are benzene too! Any wonder why the bees die off? Talk about the cannaries!
My grandmother's name was Julia Kendall. Not the same person of course. I worked for the largest auto manufacturer in America when poisoned. Benzene is emitted from all internal and external burning of almost everything! A relationship with our Creator is our only way out of this "mess" we have created. He has shared Ezekiel's vision with me and I am putting together a magnet motor that will need nothing to run for lifetimes. No pollutions,very powerful! He will probably return before we convert though!
My skin has lost much of it's pigment, as did many of my fellow workers "hide" back then. Also have most of the other classic symtoms. His grace can keep us going, for He can "restore the years the locust ate!" I'm trying to educate our church members so I can return a little! I have much to tell about chemicals in society, but it's hard to get it into the media of course! Prayer can play a big part, so send them up there please! Wondeful thing you are doing at your "little place." May God pour his best blessings all over your sweet heads. Please contact me. I'll try to get my body and mind to respond! (928) 445-7853

I was very touched to have read your tribute to Dusty. My husband and I are grieving the loss of our beloved BoBo. We had to have him put to peace on 06/09/07, from just the same illness your Dusty had. We had recently moved into our new house and noticed that BoBo was really thin and not as playful as he normally was. We contributed it to his age and the fact that he had relocated with us several times prior to this move. We bagen to boil him chicken every night so he would eat, but he just threw it all back up, I called the vet and told them everything and they said to bring him ASAP. Like you we knew it would be his last ride with us. It hurts so bad, he was with us for 14 years and his brother for 8. When does the pain ease. I know we will never forget him or the joy the he and his brother brought to our lives and our hearts. Thank you Jacki for printing your heart on paper and letting us all read it. Our boys are all playing together I'm sure of it. Thanks, Christina Seale. Bobo's Mommy

My great neice is 2 yrs. old. She fell today and hit her head, had a seizures, then stop breathing. This is the 2nd time she has had this happen to her. I know all about toxins& work a awesome business from our home to stay healthy & welathy for life. But I am really stuck on this one. I have been trying to get my neice to switch her home to toxin free. Could it be the toxins of cleaning products or perfume or both? The dr at Childrens Hospital said she would grow out of this. But this is the second seizure since birth which occured about the same time last year!

I just found out about mcs from a friend today. I have been very sick for many years, but most severely the past two years. I have also been diagnosed with cfs and fibromyalgia in the past. In the past 2 yrs. I have been through almost every test possible and my Dr. has given up. But talking to my friend today and reading Jacki's story has made sense and I believe I have found an answer to my illness. Thank you for sharing your story.

Thank you for having such an informative website available. Just tonight for the first time, a friend of mine visited, and I realized that whatever scent she was wearing was making me ill. After she left, I started looking up information on the website, and found yours to be very helpful. Now I know that this is something I can start to look into (especially since many of the symptoms sound awfully familiar). Thanks!

Hi,

I was diagnosed yesterday with MCS and have just found the web site. I also have Fibromyalgia. For years I have had problems with perfumes, household cleaners, and scented candles.

My doctor has also said I may be sensitive to EMF fields and I should get an EMF meter to check the electrical fields around appliances and electrical items. Does anyone know anything about these meters and where to purchase an inexpensive one? I have found a website that sells them called LessEMF.com. They sale many of them and I am not sure what kind to buy. My doctor said try Lowe's Home Improvement, but I called my local store and they did not know what I was talking about.

Hello and thank you for this site!
I have had MCS since 1999 and have been forced to move to a remote location in order to avoid farm chemicals in addition to all the chemicals found in any town or city. The loss of a support system of family and friends who can function within the tight restrictions necessary for me to remain healthy when around them has dwindled. So the thought of an intentional community based on sustainable and completely non chemical living has been tickling the edges of my brain for awhile now. If sighted in the right location it could offer folks with MCS the opportunity of living in a community of people who would be conscious of the difficulties of MCS from first hand experience. We could have a safe chemical free place to live and have friends and be able to socialize once again with out all the guilt and worry. We could also work the community so that we could help each other when we are having bad days. These are just some of the ideas I have had and I was wondering what other people with MCS might think of living in a community that would have strict restrictions in place to minimize chemical exposures, yet offer a place where skills could be used within the community for the benefit of all living there? If there is interest I will continue to research the idea. Thank you.

Thank you very much for this information. I have watched my father as he suffered from MCS most of my life, and since I have started attending college and have therefore been exposed to chemicals I was not exposed to before as a homeschool student in a home where we tried to keep such chemicals out, I have begun to develop many of the same symptoms. I am currently writing a college research paper over perfumes and fragrances and their effects on MCS sufferers, and have found this website to be most helpful.

Thank you for trying to make the general populace aware of the dangers of chemicals!

This is a very amazing site. I so want to put in my web page, but the comments say please do not enter URL addresses and I respect that. I am a indepentdent Norwex Consultant and I have been doing research on my own about the dangers of household cleaners. Since I started detoxifying my home with Norwex, the experience is awesome. We dont itch no more or wake up completely stuffed up.
I went into my own business 6 months ago, cleaning house's and business's, I also wanted to do it a safe way so I became a partime consultant for Norwex. Once I started reading stories so similiar to alot of yours, I have changed my goal and now have become a full time Norwex consultant. I have been so touched with these stories so much that I have pledged from that day on to donate a percentage to research in area's where they believe toxins and chemicals are the triggers or the reason why certain disorders occur. My first donations are going out to MS. I have a close and dear friend who has this. When I looked up and seen that the trigger for MS is firmly believed to linked to a toxin, I was horrified that my home may have had something I used everyday and it might be linked to something that could trigger any disorder let alone MS.
People really need to open there eyes to the use of just perfume. I use to be a candle burner, never did I once think that they were dangerous. Now since I have detoxed my home and use only Norwex, our way of life has drastically changed.
My site also will be having the updates on donations I do. I know in the near future this will be disorder that I will be donating to, to help find the answers and to reach people that use things that harm all. Our sensitivities are not as severe as some of yours, and I am so sorry for all your pain and suffering. I use to be one of those people who used products like that. I was totally unaware of all the dangers. Educating people is the first step. We were all raised to believe clean is good and to get clean you had to use harsh chemicals. They chemical companies thrive on this and make good money, and they are poisening us. I will not knock any company that strives to lead are environment to a better situation. So if any one is interested in my web page and wants further info please email me at this address. I do not sell the products to just make a living, that is why I decided to do the donations. Because I firmly believe we all need to change how we clean our own home and I believe in Norwex it has made my life, my childrens lifes, and my friends life, alot safer. God bless you all

I am looking for help getting disability compensation because of my sensitivities. I have gone to a lawyer here, but he practically laughed at me because I did not go to tons of doctors for help. Back in the mid-seventies I brought this to the attention of my family doctor and he said I would have to aviod things that make me sick. That is hard to do and I did not seek further help because most everyone I told looked at me like I was crazy. The lawyer here said I probably would not be taken seriously. Please let me know if there is anything I could do to get help.

What a beautiful site. We had to have my 89 year-old father's cat, Heidi, put to sleep, Friday evening, April 13, 2007. I entered her story on petloss.com, and attended the "candle lighting" ceremony tonight. My beautiful short hair black cat, Ricky, is 11 years old now, and healthy so far. I definitely believe in the Rainbow Bridge. My mother died three years ago, so Heidi was greeted at the bridge my mother and all of our dear pets who preceded her!

I think this chemical sensitivity reaction is real. It's kind of lonely out there. I have this ongoing cough. It gets worse when I'm inhaling some "weird" scent. I am feeling kind of scared by all this. I wish I didn't have this problem.
I feel like some kind of freak with my coughing and irritations. maybe I need to live in a bubble? I'm afraid to go to friend's houses because of the scents. I had easter brunch with some friends, and I coughed the whole time due to some "sweet powder" smell. It was very irritating. Should I see an allergist? I'm single on a tight budget, and I don't have funds to spend on this problem.
I like this web site..........peace. jeanie

I just read your memories and tribute to dusty. I am not a person who normally posts to websites, however, I feel compelled to reply to your story of Dusty. Our yorkies name was Winston. He was alomost 17 years old when we sent him to heaven on Good Friday. When I read you story of dusty, I was amazed by the similarities between our two "sons". I am going to ramble a bit here, so forgive me, but I wanted you to know and see the similarities.

Our story starts a bit differently, you see, I always wanted a yorkie and I always knew his name would be Winston. My husband, Sean, found him for me, before he(Winston) was even born. He was in a pet store and happened to see a yorkie that an a employee was taking care of.Sean struck up a conversation with the employee and came to find out that the yorkie was a stray that someone brought into the store. Upon further discussion, he learned that the employee raised championship yorkies and was going to breed this stray female with her male. Sean, knowing of my desire for a yorkie, made a deal with her for a male of the lot. That is how we got Winston.

Winston was a tough little boy from the onset. Early on he had a hernia, and had to have an operation when he was only 1lb.

Winston had an older sister, Kyra a german shepard, who he loved to play with and antagonize. One day, when they were playing, she also must have gotten tired of him harassing him and took a bite at him. Winston immediately went into a seizure and we had to rush him to the hospital. my husband has nicknamed me Mario Andretti for how fast I got him there. To the vets amazement, he survived.This happen about two years before he died. One side effect, was that he had seizures from that day on.

Winston also loved to open presents on christmas. We would have to hide his presents up in the tree, so he would not get to them. On Christmas, every member of our family gave him presents, which he loved to open amd play with or eat...

Winston also was a " Grandmas" boy. Every time we went to grandmas house, he could not wait to get there. He loved garandma for feeding him carrots( one of his favorites) and loved to sit on her lap. Everytime we told him we were going to "grandmas". he would run to the door and could not wait to go.

Of course, we also had many nicknames for him including : little man, boo-boo, beetle man( because he loved to pounce on them), pumpkin, just to name a few.

January 2007. I was away on a business trip. Winston got VERY ill. Sean took him to the hospital. Kidney failure was the diagnosis, phosphorus levels high eInough to kill him. Moma's boy was dying, and I was not there. What to do? We talked every few hours and I said that it was ok for him to go to heaven. But, Sean was insistant taht Winston wanted to see me before he went. Sean went to the hospital 2-3 times each day an kept telling Winston that moma was coming home and to hang on. To the vets amazement, Winston did wait for me to get home.

I am now at the hospital. Winston looks really really bad. I come very close to sending him to heaven right then and there... but I can't. The vet suggests that we take Winston home for a few hours, to say goodbye. They leave the cathatire in, knowing that in a few hours we will have to send him to heaven. That night, Winston sleeps with me.

The next day, when he wakes up, he looks hungry. To our amazement, he is famished and eats like a "piggy"( anolther nicname).!! 3 days later, we take him back to the vet to have the cath. taken out.. They are amazed taht he is still alive!!

Winston stayed with us for 3 more months. Like Dusty, he stopped eating ( even his favorite foods of pizza and steak). After 5 days, we knew it was time. As you said, he was suffering and we could not keep him.

On the way, he was laying on his blanket in the car and when we got only a few minutes from the vet, he suddenly got up ( he had not stood in 3 days without me holding him) and looked a me right in the eye--- I know he was saying that it was ok, he was ready to go and play with his sister ( 2 german shepards that went to heaven before him)

There are many more similarities between Dusty and Winston. I would have never thought it possible-- including squirrels, and understanding things like bath, walk, grandma, treat, ect. Just like Dusty...

It has only been a few days since we lost him... My heart is broken,

Thank you for your story.

There is so much support and so many suggestions that I am feeling much more optimistic now. Reading so many comments from so many people I no longer care if the medical "professionals" can validate the existence of my condition.

Really, I should not be surprised at all. Fifteen years ago I diagnosed and created a successful treatment protocol for my daughter's Seasonal Affective Disorder when my doctor literally laughed at me when I suggested she had it. Ten years ago I told my husband he had sleep apnea and needed to have his tonsils removed. He and all the doctors insisted he didn't have it. Lo and behold, he had that exact surgery last October when the doctors finally clued in. Sorry, I needed to vent!

I am so glad I found this site! I've been wishing I could find someone like me to talk to but I've never met anyone with MCS!I have had this 23 years and it's been so bad the past 3 years I had to give up on working and I hardly ever leave home! When I do go out, I almost always get a chemical odor on me (smoke, perfume, air "fresheners", go into a reaction, and it takes at least a week to recover. It is difficult having people over because the same thing happens--seems repair people always smell like cologne or Bengay/Icy Hot!!! Family doesn't understand--except my husband. To the reader with troubles from neighbors incense, I need similar help. I have a neighbor renting a home next to ours. Their laundry is on the outside porch and every day he comes home, puts laundry in the wash, and pours Downy Fabric softener in!!! It is torcher when he puts the laundry in the dryer--can't go outside for sure. Our central heat and air unit is on the roof on the side closest to his house and if I don't turn it off until he finishes (all the while freezing or burning up hot), it comes in through the air and circulates through the house. The odor comes in our outside unfinished laundry room so I can't do my laundry during this time, and I have to turn on an air filter in each room to help with what comes in through cracks around the door and window--we have applied weather stripping and caulk but some still comes in. Also, I have problems with others' BBQ and chimney smoke coming in. I have to pull off the hose that vents the dryer and cover the end with foil when not in use--if I don't the odors get in my dryer and smell my clothes up. Any suggetions on keeping these odors from blowing in trough the CH & Air?

I have researched the use of molybdenum. It's use is recommended under close care of a doctor. I am happy to hear you have had such good results with this Dee. However, to other severe MCS sufferers like myself,please be careful and talk to your doctor before using this trace mineral. It can be very toxic and has to be in balance with your copper levels. It could actually deplete your system of copper. Not trying to sound preachy.I am not a doctor! But just being cautious . As we know with MCS our bodies are functioning on a fine line of balance day to day. RESEARCH,RESEARCH,RESEARCH!

EVERYONE STARTED DOING THAIR HOME WORK, WELL ONE PERSON CAME UP WITH AN AWNSER IT WAS MOLYBDENUM Although very small amounts are needed, molybdenum is a vital part of three important enzyme systems and is necessary for the proper function of certain enzyme-dependent processes, including the metabolism of iron. When the iron stored in the liver is freed, it can then carry oxygen to body cells and tissue. Molybdenum works with the enzyme systems to help eliminate nitrogen waste by turning it into uric acid. The uric acid then can be converted and more easily flushed out of the system.*THAIT IS A COMPANY CALLED WATEROZ THAT YOU CAN ACCASS ON LINE. I CALLED SEVERAL HEALTH FOOD STORES IN MY AREA AND WAS TOLD THAT THAIR ARE OTHER COMPANYS THAT CARRY MOLYDBEUM IN PILLS OR LUQIED I ONLY KNOW HOW TO TAKE THE LIQUIED YOU ARE TO START WITH 1 TEASPOON 4 TIMES A DAY BEFOR MEAL AND AT BED TIME AFTER A MONTH YOU CAN INCREASE TO A TABLE SPOON
THE RESOLS WERE SO FAST I STARTED TO FEEL BETTER THE NEXT DAY .

Why scents may not make cents when trying to sell your home.

For many home sellers and realtors who believe the TV commercials that claim chemical sprays “sanitize” the air, plug-ins “freshen” the air and Fragrance emitting devices actually clean the air, well…this may not be good news.

The savvy, health consious home buyer of today has added chemical fragrances to their list of what they don’t want to smell when they are looking to buy a home. These chemical fragrances are now listed right next to mold, cigarette smoke odor and animal urine by many home buyers.

Home buyers today are more educated than ever. Even inexperienced first time home buyers understand that fragrances do not clean the air, they contaminate it and more often than not make people very sick. They have kids with asthma and allergies. They themselves might suffer from migraines, anaphylaxis or fragrance sensitivity.

Home buyers know that clean should not have a smell. So, while the location, square footage and price of your home might be perfect for your would be buyer, the smell of your home just might be the deciding factor on why an offer was not written up.

What does your house smell like?

Once plug in style fragrance emitting devices are used in a home, the oil / fragrance permeates the sheetrock as well as flooring. Similar goes for the fragranced dryer sheets in the laundry room. These chemical odors then circulate in the air vent system and will never come out, no matter what you do.

With the growing population of people suffering with fragrance sensitivity, Asthma and allergies, house hunting can often prove to be quite a challenge.

If you are in the market to sell your home, increase your odds of getting top dollar and more offers by discontinuing the use of fragranced products. Open your windows and let the fresh air in. Clean with non-fragranced products. . Your house will then be marketable to all potential buyers... even those with health issues.

After all, you do want your home to take a buyers breath away... but not literally.

Hi, I first noticed that I started being sensitive to perfumes around Christmas 2000, during a shoping trip. People at a perfume counter were spraying away, trying all sorts of fragrances for possible Christmas gifts....I couldn't go within 10 feet. Things have gotten progressively worse over the years. It is mostly perfumes and candles. About 2yrs ago in a Wed. night Bible class, at church, a lady sat by me with strong perfume on and I tried to turn my head away to breathe "fresh air" I got sicker and sicker. I wound up on a pew in the hallway literally passed out. I barely remember people walking by and speaking to me. I couldn't get up. People do act like you are just being over sensitive or faking it. My son is 12 and has found Axe body spray.....I smell it when he walks in the door and get a forehead headache. I will get nauseas if I continue to smell it.I am in the process of ridding my home of offensive stuff. I am glad I found this site it will certainly help me.

Hello,

Geez, there are more of you out there than I thought!

I've sufferd for so many years! Now I have a neurological disorder called Dystonia. In Fact, there will be a special on about Dystonia this on OPB's Independent Lens on Jan. 30th 07.

Some one out there may benifit from the film.

I told my Dr. that I get worse with chemical exposure but as you may guess she disagrees that's the cause!

My ex-husband attacked me with Chlorophorm and put me unconscience with it - and kidnapped my kids.

Now that I see that it is in the list of dangerous chemicals and causes CNS problems I dare her to dispute it!

My husband sees me get sick. I'm so grateful for his support but friends and family all think I'm nuts!

My step son treats me like a wicked step mom because I've requested him not come over with aftershave on. He dosn't care or listen. It's so sad. My grandaughter (his child) has constant watery eyes. I'm now concearned for her as I read this is a symptom! Maybe now he'll listen!

I found this site because I'm on a mission to educate all the stores and resturants I frequent. They all contract with a company called "Swisher" to clean their bathrooms and put in those automated air fresheners that release a continuous poison. I can no longer go to the bathroom in public! It's awful! It's so bad that my personal air freashener can't compete!

Thanks,

I have MCS and cannot find any bed linens or new clothes that don't have a chemical odor. Can anyone else relate to this? Does anyone know of where I can purchase these things that don't have that smell? I know it's a petroleum sensitivity.

My old stuff, which I had to disguard, did not have chemical odors. I still have a few and they smell fine. So it's the new fabrics that are being made.

I have no pillowcases or blankets on my bed. I had to make a blanket pinning two old towels together. I have to continuously wash my pillows.

Just want to say that I'm very impressed with your website. I also love Jesus Christ and am being made more and more aware of the Toxic lifestyle we have in this Modern World.

I used to use all the designer perfumes out there, cosmetic, toiletry, and cleansing supplies, but after being made aware of just how dangerous they are to the body, I got rid of everything in a week, and replaced with biodegradable, non toxic alternatives.

You can even get cosmetics, shampoos and conditioners that are free from chemicals and solvents if you search. I like Aubrey Organics for most of my toiletries and Burt's Bees for my cosmetics now.

Citra-Solv and other similar Eco companies sell non-toxic window , furniture polishes, dishwashing detergents, dish cleaner, carpet cleaner-- you name it.-- and they don't cost that much more.

You can get certain Essential Oils to use as perfumes-- and the Heritage Shop sells alot of inexpensive floral sprays made from water and flower petals in Lavendar, Rose, etc.

Where there is a Will, there is a Way- and when you seek out God's Will, He shows His Way!

Alot of my health problems went away after removing man-made toxic filled things from my life. My sense of smell has also improved as well, and my sinus problems are all gone now.

There seems to be a lot of interesting remarks on this site. I have been living a very challenging existence due to chemical hypersensitivities for almost two years now. I reside in Bergen County, NJ. Does any know of a support group in my area? The local support group for Chronic Fatigue is held in a hospital and the members had too much perfume on for me. Who am I kidding, any is too much. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Hi friends! As a fellow MCS sufferer I have finally found a good M.D. in my area that aknowledges MCS and treats this condition. I am scheduled for January to have I.V. chelation therapy and it is really scary for me and I am overwhelmed with fear as I react to everything and do not like anything invasive. Has anyone ever received this treatment? And has it been sucessful? If anyone could share any thoughts on this I would be so thankful. I do not want my fear of treatment holding me back from possibly a good thing.

I am astounded after trying the vinegar detox soak you recommended. I had an infected cyst on my bum and was going to go to the doctor to have it lanced. I thought why not try the detox? After just 20 minutes in the tub with about 2 cups of organic apple cider vinegar added to the tub, my cyst broke all by itself and started draining!!!!! How fabulous is that! No trip to the doctor. Thank you, thank you, thank you! :clap:

Hello-

Just found your web site by chance, I have had MCS for over 15 years. I just had a full hysterectomy and hernia surgery three weeks ago and was doing really well in my recovery. One Nov 8th I began struggling with what they "think" is pneumonia which I developed suddenly about 7-8 days out of the hospital (I was there for a total of five days). I have something in the inside of my right lung, and no one seems to know what it is. I am not a smoker and it does not have the appearance of cancer. I have never lived in a second hand smoke environment except as a very small girl when my Dad quit smoking. This thing was amazingly painful the first few days, I was started on antibiotics, and when nothing "happened" after five days, the docs switched me to a stronger antibiotic, which I am currently taking. Needless to say, this med is distressing my irritable bowel, but seems to be slowly improving my condition. I tend to be impatient with my anxiety illnesses (anxiety and panic attacks for nearly six years). I was in emergency twice last week with this thing and had to deal with all the smells in the ER room, which was very difficult. The ER docs mean well, but the throw all these fears into you about what they think is really going on. I was told a tumor, pneumonia )viral and or bacteria), maybe cancer in my colon which may have spread to my lung, all sorts of frightening predictions. The truth is, they just don't know what it is, and I am really frightened and having a hard time being patient. Very discouraged and frustrated. Seeing a pulmonary doc in nine days, but in the meantime, my anxiety disorder and panic attacks are getting the better of me worrying about this, I am not one for medicating myself when I am anxious and have now turned to a childhood girlfriend in CA who called me yesterday and encouraged me to seek God and turn this over to Him. I was raised a very strict Catholic, left the church for many years and for many of the same reasons too long to list. Studied Buddhism for the last 15 but never felt fulfilled. My childhood friend has offered to have other people that she knows contact me to support me through this time in my area, and she has put me in her prayer circle. I have not been able to develop many friendships here during the last five years, due to my chemical restrictions. One of my few friends here, a wonderful woman with MCS for 30 years, ended her live this last May. I was devastated when her daughter called and have tried to offer any support to her elderly grieving widower, who never really understood the extent of her mental and physical sufferings. She was my sounding board for her depression and chemical sufferings and she was mine. I miss her so!!! I am so glad I now have this website to come to, to share thoughts, ideas, frustrations of living with MCS and my fears as I strive to get well from this lung thing. I am awaiting a SS disability hearing coming up this January for my MCS. Wish to find others with MCS in my area, or hear from anyone who may have picked up or acquired pneumonia in a hospital, while there for surgery. The doctors here do not want to deal with overwhelming fears about this lung thing, so I guess I just need to truely turn this over to God, and know that He will take care of me. I still have issues around my "higher power" from years of the guilt and shame-based beliefs that were instilled in me by my Mom. I loved her dearly, but cannot believe in a God who is fear-based as she did. Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated. Many thanks to all!!!

I have found amino acid therapy to help the most with physiological and psychological (which are the same...check AmenClinic.com) A book that lists excellent formulas for stress, anxiety, etc. is Seven Weeks to Sobriety by Larsen. It is great even if you don't drink. A lot of problems are caused by ACETALDEHYDE which is what gives you a hang-over, forms the skin of every candida/yeast and most importantly is detoxified (along with formaldehyde) by FOLIC ACID. The govt. limited the amount of folic acid in supplements, so i take many. 800 mcg is less than 1 miligram. Folic acid also controls homocysteine that causes many problems (heart attacks and strokes) and "WE" generally have too much. Gotta sleep. Aloha P.S.

I'm back. After reading some, I had to add that Glutathione and amino acids, DHEA, Melatonin & Ginko seem to help me most. Glutathione (GSH Phenomenon book) is made of sulphur and is one of 3 detox enzymes (also SOD from wheat grass & Catalase). GSH is used up everytime it takes a toxin out. NAC makes more GSH, thins mucous (like Guanifenisin (?sp) that my M.D. gave (but it is blue and I avoid colorings. I just use 50 mg. pills from Source Naturals and disolve them sub-lingually at night or if exposed. The reason garlic, broccoli, vitamin C, E, etc. help the body is they all help GSH. Alpha Lipoic Acid is also both a fat & water anti-oxidant that makes more of the ENZYME Glutathione. Enzymes are the only things that DO things and cause reactions (actividy) in the body. GSH pills also helped my 87 year old mom when she couldn't kick a bug she picked up in Mexico. I'd prefer living in a screen house if I could find fresh outside air. I know MOLD is toxic and equivalent to VOC's. Leviticus 14:33 warns of mold (leprosy). My first symptoms were numb hands. Check your plumbing wall for leaks!!!

I have been to your site many times over the past 5 years of suffering with this illness. I have always found it encouraging. I feel an obligation to pass along what is happening to me: After 5 years of getting steadily more and more sensitive, my life was extremely compromised. In May of this year I was introduced to a product called Reliv. It is a nutritional powder that is changing my life! I am reacting to about 1/4 of the things I used to react to. I can eat almost anything I want, perfume doesn't bother me (used to put me in bed for days!). I know it sounds too good to be true, but it isn't. When I first got on it, I spoke with a lady in OK that had used Reliv and her body quit reacting to the things it reacted to. She was inspiration to tryiing it and sticking to it even though I had little faith it would work. If you want more info, email or call me at 406-579-9102...don't despair,there is hope!

I am so appreciative of your site and great information regarding MCS. I have had it for 20 years and as I'm more exposed, it becomes more serious. I finally found a church that is very understanding of my problem and also one other parishoner.
Tomorrow morning they have asked if we would explain to the others, why the two of us sit by ourselves. I have printed several of the articles found here and will place them in church for anyone who wishes to know more about this invisible disease. Thank you for your help and God bless.

I recently (just over a year ago) became extremely sensitive to chemicals and mold probably due to a place I had just moved into (perhaps it was moldy, it definitely had insecticide sprayed regularly in the walls to kill termites). Since them, it's been a year of moving from place to place (16 total so far, and currently I'm sleeping in a tent in the backyard hoping it won't rain anytime soon!) Fortunately, I'm still able to work and workout, when I'm not using all my time for apartment hunting!, so I'm not quite as affected as many people seem to be. I think regular work outs are great, and they often seem to reset my body. I know when you are in the process of being poisoned (such as I was when I lived in the place that originally made me ill) working out, or even moving fast, just isn't that much of an option. But I can't over recommend exercise. It does wonders.

I'm disappointed that the medical community (for the most part) does not recognize MCS. However, this is a great website. I would be interested in learning more about non toxic building materials, as it seems I might just have to build something myself.

I also wanted to cheer on the posting I read on a previous page.... It's good to keep a sense of humor, keep things in perspective, and try to be reasonable... As much as possible, in any case!

I pasted the posting below:



I know this illness seems to limit our choices, and when exposed often, our judgment, too. Sometimes we sound crazy, and that can only work against us in our goal of educating those who don't yet understand. Let's do all we can to stay in amusement, maintain a reasonable tone, and remember to use SPELLCHECK!

I am an RN and am currently working in a local hospital. Everyday that I go to work, I get very ill. But where can I possibly work in my present capacity where I wouldn't be subject to disinfectents, perfumes, cologne, air fresheners, formaldehyde etc...What do people do when they have this. How do they financially adapt. I too am seeing Dr. Robbins and he has helped me tremendously, but I need to make an income. Does anyone have any suggestions for legitamate work from home? Is it possible to even get disability? Home is the only safe haven I have. Every day that I go to work, I find that I become more sensitive much more readily. Your site is such a wealth of information, I refer to it frequently, since I found it. Thank-you so much.

What a great forum for us "no toxins folks"! Be brave, be proud and keep persisting. I read one post from a person who's "friend" put her down for wanting to live in a non-toxic work environment. I know what that feels like and just want to say--hang in there and hold your green ground. As a person who sells non-toxic products, I can tell you that many people are threatened by a different way of life even if it might mean they would live longer and feel better. Go figure!

Hi. It was/is wonderful to find this site. I have been in 2 work environments, within the last year, wherein two individuals used chemicals to purposely make me ill, although I had explained my MCSI at both job interviews, and then to my fellow employees, hoping to avoid such scenarios. I am baffled by the apparent hostility to my disclosures, given each employer was willing to hire me. (I know about ADA laws and chose not to sue the employers, as it was not their fault the employees did what they did.) I have since decided I must find a way to make an income at home, where I can protect myself from people with questionable mental health. What made me the saddest, however, was when a good friend critized me and claimed I "was isolating myself and withdrawing from the world," without making any effort to read up on my condition. I am convinced that each of us must speak out about our illness, to remove the stigma, and to educate others, (similar to the manner in which some of the stigma against people with mental illnesses has been reduced.) If we remain silent, and hide our invisible illness, few people will know about the condition, educate themselves about it, and will continue to poison their families. There is a great doctor--Harvard trained, with another degree in botany, by the name of Andrew Weil. In his website: askDr.Weil.com, he has web pages that explain alternative cleaning solutions and practices. Do us all a favor. Print them, copy them, and send them to a few people. (Baby steps?) Thanks for reading, and may God Bless you all, Marcy

I am so glad to find this site. Years ago my lungs were damaged by propane gas leaks in our home, to the degree of losing 60-65% of my breathing capacity. It has been an uphill struggle to live in this world of ours. I am highly allergic to smoke, perfume, pesticides, mold, petroleum products, fabric softeners, mothballs, chemicals, most filtering machines, formaldyde, freon...the list goes on! Also, allergies to some foods (egg yolks are high on that list), cats, grasses, some trees, dust...You get the picture. Lately, I guess because of my lowered immune system, I have re-occuring eye ulcers. I have God on my side, so I will conquer! God bless you all.

This site is wonderful! I work in a very disfunctional environment and my request for a "no-scent" zone was met first with shock, then snide remarks and now deliberate use of highly offensive, fragrance laden products. It is a nightmare! So when I stumbled on this site yesterday it was like a long cool drink after a very hot and thirsty trek in the wilderness. I MUST find a source for the flyers...does anyone know where I can get them? Also, I use Arbonne products exclusively on my skin and hair...these are chemical, color, dye, and fragrance free products-pure, safe, and beneficial is the company motto and I'm here to tell you it's true. Have a great day! :-)

Jacki, you did the right thing by removing the "silver" you just had the WRONG dentist. I have been an EI since 1986 finally diagnosed in 1994. Something that might help...accupuncture to rebalance your meridians from the damage done during the sitting in the chair and incorrect movements of the head, jaw, mouth, etc. Did the dentist use a heated neck pack, dental dam, remove the fillings in order of toxicity, give you a homeopathic remedy to counter the chemical effects, have you done master cleanses, IV drips, UBI treatments, Oxygen therapy, peroxide drips....Has your dentist realigned your bit using the new electronic device that measures pressure and stress on each tooth? Where you blood tested for allergic response to dental materials (about a $250.00 test)...your composite should not be crumbling...I've have some that are 14 years old and as strong as the day they were put in. In order for removal to be safe it must be done in a very specific way or it'll reflect in the problems you are having. Is there a Holistic dentist nearby who can give you a second opinion ? There is also available Laser treatments that will reduce dental toxins..also helpful - colonics to remove dental debris. A herbal tincture from Nature's Apothecary - Lymph Cleanse - will also help to move lymph fluid and detox the body. Do you Fast? My husband and I did a 21 day fast 10 months ago and have switched from cooked food to a raw, macrobiotic diet and the results are incredible! After living with CFIDS, FMS, MCS and any other letter you can think of, I've become healthy for the first time in 20 years... If I can help anyone or share information I'll gladly do it....vb

I suffered from infertility but luckily I did overcome it at first through the conventional way but then through the more natural way with herbs. I have found some incredible products to clean my house with and they are all wonderful, including some cosmetics too that work great and do not contain any caustic or toxic chemicals. It is just wonderful and I would love to share the information that i have. Does anyone know how I go about doing this? Thanks

It gave me reassurance in knowing that I'm not the only one to suffer the loss of a wonderful pet and that we did the right thing in putting her down. And the song "Precious Little Friend" still makes me cry...

WOW! I can't believe what I'm reading! It was by accident that I found this web site.(well, maybe God had something to do with it) My mother has been suffering for the past 20 years from "something", and we have never been able to figure it out. She has had so many symptoms and has had every illness I've ever known. This MCS sounds like what she could have. I can't wait to show her all of this information. She has been told that she is bipolar,has psychatric problems, and been hospitalized for many things related to these. She has always said that it is "in the air", and she just might be right! She claims that paper holds chemicals and makes her sick. She smells things in the air, and her lips tingle, and she can't swallow, and her throat swells shut, those kind of things. Sprays, perfumes, all make her sick,very sick. She even coughs up blood, and this is not good. I have cried and cried reading some of the problems that others on this site have gone through. I'm so sorry for you and your family. I certainly hope that my mother can find out what is wrong with her too. God bless you all, thank you for sharing your lives and making others aware to this on going problem.

Thank you for this wonderful site. It's helping me deal with my MCS by reading about other sufferers of this condition. Most people don't take my condition seriously and think I am exaggerating about my symptoms...even though last week I passed out at work and they called 911. I am on the verge of having to quit my job because of perfume wearers. I have gone to the human resource dept. and they have asked individuals to not wear colonge. These individuals continue to wear it. I can not afford to leave my job. I am not sure what my rights are in this situation. My ability to function daily is becoming impossible. If anyone has any advice on this matter I would greatly appreciate it. And yes, I would love a community just for MCS sufferers. Thanks!

Greetings good people. Thank you for your wonderful website. I came across your site tonight while surfing for info to help inform people on the dangers of air fresheners. I am a 39 year old mother of two and also a MCS survivor. My first symptoms started at around age 10. I have been fortunate- I have wonderful doctors, the best husband and 2 beautiful children.
My son is 8. He came home from school today and his backpack smelled of air freshener. He is very aware of his mom's MCS and told me that yes the teacher had just plugged an air freshener in a few days ago. I think this should be a crime! My goal is to educate this teacher and the school since I know other rooms have plug-ins as well. Your site has been very helpful. Do you have any other articles linking air fresheners/perfumes to learning disabilities or ADHD?
Would like to have as many facts in hand as I can before I go to the school.
Thank you for your time and God bless,
Margo

Hello, I am pleased to see a site like yours. I have been aware of MCS for about 5 years. Fortunately, I have not been personally affected in the respect of my health, but as a hairstylist I was receiving with more frequency requests for hair products that were fragrance free. To my surprise it was a much overlooked area. So, having a background in product ingredients I decided to produce my own line, called Synergy. My first intentions were for monetary gain, but rapidly this gave way to a humanitarian side of numerous personal conversations involving the daily struggles my clients faced. It's those testimonials that truly motivate me. Another web site with a wealth of information is the multiple chemical sensitivity foundation, it's worth looking into. If there is any interest in my line, which is free of color dyes, parabens and fragrance you can search for "synergyhair" online. Best of luck for anyone utilizing this great site! Please know your unseen dilema is gaining it's due recognition with better understanding. Best regards and good health-Craig

Sometimes I feel the need to be rescued. This is a SERIOUS request for prayer. My husband and I (could) be on the verge of bankrupcy. We have two young children. (9 yrs. and 1 yr. - both girls) We are very afraid and stressed out. We don't know what tomorrow will bring. (My husband is a
business man, 52; I am a stay at home mom, 41.) Please...whoever reads this, please pray for us. It is a very frightening time and we need to know someone is out there caring for us. We belong to a wonderful church, and there are people there praying as well. My husband is a litle scared about
telling our pastor how bad things are for fear of being blamed for our situation. We are trying to be brave through this for our children, but it is hard to even get up in the morning because we don't know what tomorrow will bring. Please pray. If anyone would like to e-mail me I would love
to hear from you. ONLY POSITIVE WORDS THOUGH PLEASE. ALL OTHERS WILL BE DELETED. Blessings.

Thank-you for your excellent and informative website.
I suffer from CFS with neurological, endocrine, pain and exhaustion after exertion- which I have had for one year and six months. Also, chemicals are increasing debilitating. A few days ago, my husband purchased an aerosol "air freshener" and one evening sprayed this stuff in the living
room. Within seconds, these chemicals went up my nose and I felt powerful burning and irritation and pain. I had to run to the bedroom, close the door and put a towel at the bottom of the door. I escaped from the stench that hung in the living room, but I could taste the chemicals and I coughed
and sneezed for hours and my nasal passages swelled. The after effects from this poison continued for days. After this, my husband who is healthy realized that we can not have any of these products in the house. I did some research on these "air fresheners" and the way that these poisons
work is that the aerosol is designed to cover and coat your nasal passages with these "perfumes" and linger in your sinuses so any bad odors will be covered and every time you inhale you get this dangerous poison into your system.. Everyone (even if you don't show sensitivity) should not
purchase this stuff and throw out all plug-ins, "aroma therapy" discs and aerosols. I have removed fabric softener sheets, bathroom chemicals, candles, double rinse my clothes, etc….
The research of Dr. Martin Pall that Sal Salvador e-mail comments pointed out is very important. The common cellular dysfunction in his hypothesis is found in CFS, FM, MCS. Dr. Paul Cheney is doing fascinating research into CFS, and his theory ( he credits Dr. Pall also) is that this disease is a
cellular level energy dysfunction, that then goes on to produce a dyastolic heart dysfunction, which then goes on to produce microcirculation problems and this cycle goes round and round. Dr. Jay Goldstein, was looking at the brain problems of CFS sufferers, and his theory was that the nasal
olfactory system was so permeable, causing substances to be inhaled and would go right to the limbic system in the brain, causing terrible neurological and systemic problems. Some studies indicate that some people have genetic deficiencies that don't allow us to clear chemicals as well as
"normals." Many canaries will have CFS & MCS both or combos such as FM, MCS.
Our food supply is swimming in chemicals- just read a soup can label! You will find chemicals with names as long as your arm in processed food such as frozen convenience foods, junk foods, sauces and flavorings, cereals, canned foods, hydrogenated garbage such as margarine, putrified oils such as
canola , corn (all those light bleached oils) , soft drinks (new research is finding more benzene than previously reported), etc…. As we must stay totally away from those awful fragrance chemicals, I also find myself trying to avoid food loaded with chemicals, preseratives and poison and belive me
it is a struggle. as a society, our tastebuds crave all this MSG and artificial and chemical flavors. My husband makes terrible food choices when he goes shopping alone. Cutting this stuff out brings you down to more basic choices. Even our vegetables are loaded with pesticides!
Here is a fascinating bit of information I read recently about airplanes. I had no idea that it is routine when planes fly from destination to destination, that during refueling it is routine for huge sprays of pesticides to be infused into the plane's air recirculation system, and this must keep
accumulating time after time. In Hillary Johnson's excellent book OSLER"S WEB, she explores the huge increase of CFS in pilots and filght attendants in airline industry (medical field such as hospitals is the highest). No doubt MCS and FM also are rampant.
One book that I will be getting is SKEWED by Martin Walker. He exposes the petrochemical industry and its huge tenticles to everyone from the chemical mongers (Better living through chemicals) which include pharma (who very deeply influence medical dogma and the medical practices that are defined
and delineated by our insurance companies.) drug producers as well as the food industry. This industry is TRILLION dollar business and the rich and powerful have stock in this business. They sit on the boards of powerful medical, universities and private sector affiliates. They are NOT going to
open research up and do studies to come to these conclusions showing direct cause-and-effect of these poisons. The sad part is that so many people don't make any connection at all to the numerous environmental poison and toxins, and don't even have a clue that those "plug-ins", etc… are
damaging their families and their personal health. It is ironic how the average American believes and boasts that the U.S. has a high level of health compared to other countries. The U. S. way down below the level of many countries considered to be at a lower economic level such as third world
countries. The U. S. is experiencing a growing population especially in the area of chronic degenerative disease which is rampant and escalating even in youth. The only area that has improved is in acute coronary emergency medical life saving techniques. Medicine has made progress in this E.R. area
probably because they have had plenty of people with acute coronary life threatening problems to deal with and learn from in the first place. Medical schools education are not doing much with CFS or FM. MCS also.
Education is the key to understanding these diseases. Your website and others help baffled patient who becomes more isolated and disabled in sickness that is called "mysterious" and "nonexistant" by the health industry. Thank-you for the bridge of understanding that you are
creating. More and more people with these diseases are coming forward and their voices are being heard in greater and greater numbers. Our prayers hopefully will lead to the truth and disclosure about these diseases of CFS, FM and MCS.

I'm so happy to have found your website! I've suffered from migraines and muscle weakness caused by fragrances for over 15 years. I'm very much a homebody because if it. Very, very rarely go out to a concert, theatre or mueseum. Working is absolute hell for me but yet when I tell co-workers
about how toxic perfumes/colognes, air freshners,, etc are they don't believe me. Now I can give them your website address. Thanks so very much!

Our society has become OVER fragranced. Stores spray scents and they're even being put into clothes. Lipsticks are scented. (Why would a woman want to wear a scented lipstick/gloss anyway??)

I have also had all of my amalgam (mercury) fillings removed! My doctor has been very helpful in educating me about the dangers of toxins, and has quite a bit of experience treating "toxic" people. He has an interesting, online risk a**sment that you can do to get an estimate of your
body's toxic burden.

I developed mercury poisoning in 1999 and was diagnosed and treated in 2002. At that time I developed MCS, Hashimoto's Thyroidosis, and Adrenal disorders that still to this day baffle doctors.

Before MCS my life was full with my own business, a home I owned on Maui in Hawaii, active competitive bodybuilding, cla**, reading, and more. Since MCS my life has become a shambles and I've lost everything but a vehicle I sleep in. That is my only safe haven from the laundry fumes in
traditional housing neighborhoods that trigger seizures and my world becomes smaller and more lonely each day.

I advocate tirelessly for recognition of MCS and public accomodations for sufferers.

The most painful part of MCS is the insinuation that MCS is all in your head when the physial symptoms are very real and very debilitating. I am hopeful that Dr. Martin Pall's research will soon be completed showing the cause of MCS as eleveated levels of peroxynitrite and nitric oxide so that
doctors will take us seriously.

The last thing in the world I was to do is live on disability but what choice do I have? I'd prefer in a heartbeat to have my life back the way it was before I was poisoned by mercury in 1999.

Thank you for this wonderful site.

Aloha!

I have been suffering from MCS for at least 12 years now. Many of the information on this website I am familiar with. My husband has decided that he is tired of living the lifestyle that I must follow and is going to divorce me. Does anybody out there know about a community for people who have
MCS?
