International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

Mild chemical sensitivity - what to do?

Discussion in 'Addressing Biotoxin, Chemical & Food Sensitivities' started by Fogbuster, Jan 2, 2014.

    I think I have sensitivities to mold or dust as always have one or both nostrils clogged whilst in bed. Get asthma symptoms when I smoke a cigarette and got pretty intense brain fog when my niece sat next to me with her peroxide coloured hair within about 3 mins. So no severe symptoms but enough to be irritating and stop healing progress.

    I have been trying to treat leaky gut, SIBO and yeast issues with absolutely no results and I think I need to address toxicity issues first before I can make any progress.

    What are the first steps to take?

    I'm going to buy a far infrared sauna. Not going to do colonic irrigation which is unbelievably dangerous, don't want to spend loads on "colon cleanser" rubbish, although might try a coffee yeah if anyone has any experience and previous success doing certain things I'd love to know!!

    This is not a cure but I was told by an Environmental doctor to drink 1/4 tsp baking soda in 4 oz of water after an exposure. It really helps a lot. You can also use Alka Seltzer Gold.

    I kept a bottle with me if I knew I was
    Going to be someplace where I had a problem

    Improve liver detox with herbs - I like NOW Liver Detoxifier and Regenerator

    Colon - try magnesium supplements, slippery elm and psyllium to help clean out the pipes.

    Bentonite clay was recommended to me but it doesn't work for me!

    Juicing - organic veges.

    Activated charcoal does me a few favours!
