“Don’t get near me, your perfume is making me sick!”

 

The American Medical Association and the American Academy of Asthma, Allergy and Immunology are bickering about whether Multiple Chemical Sensitivities is a real condition.  Well if you ask anyone who has it, they would answer a resounding “YES, most definitely!”

Here are some of the key symptoms associated with multiple chemical sensitivity:

  • headache
  • fatigue
  • dizziness
  • nausea
  • congestion
  • itching
  • sneezing
  • sore throat
  • chest pain
  • changes in heart rhythm
  • breathing problems
  • muscle pain or stiffness
  • skin rash, diarrhea
  • bloating
  • gas
  • confusion
  • trouble concentrating
  • memory problems
  • mood changes

People find that there are definite triggers that set off these symptoms.  The top triggers seem to be:

  • tobacco smoke
  • auto exhaust
  • perfume
  • insecticide
  • new carpet
  • chlorine
  • many others

What I found disconcerting about this article is the statement that there are no known reliable tests to help diagnose MCS and no effective treatments.  So some doctors are prescribing, guess what?  The anti-depressants that increase serotonin, such as Celexa, Paxil, and Prozac.

I read this article with amazement and dismay. Because in the holistic world multiple chemical sensitivities are all about the liver.  The reason why people react to environmental triggers is because their liver is already overloaded with toxins and they can’t get rid of added ones, such as perfumes, exhaust, new carpeting, etc.

That’s why consistent liver detoxification is so important. The medical establishment just doesn’t understand this foundation principle of good health.
