    1. Have you thought about applying for funding from any funding bodies? I know that MCS Aware have got Big Lottery Fund money in the past. 2. Are you set up for Gift Aid? That will increase the value of any donations from UK taxpayers.

    Has anyone figured out a way to travel by air? With MCS sitting in an airplane for hours is just not possible!! I can handle an hour or so in the airport lounge area with my N95 with charcoal filter mask, but after that the elastics start hurting my head and I get a headache!! If anyone has any practical and preferably cheap ideas I would love to hear about them!

    Maff I used to manage entire airport and flights wearing my charcoal mask, which attracted a lot of unwanted attention but kept me symptom-free! Have you tried a personal air purifier in addition to your mask? Also, this may seem entirely counter-intuitive but diazepam (Valium) actually dampened my reactions significantly when taken post-exposure. Anti-histamines may also work for you if you have allergy / mast cell involvement e.g. mast cell activation disorder (MCAD) - use search box top right for discussions of this topic. Sorry I can't help further. Good luck!

    Yet these studies can still not adequately model the fact that people with gut fermentation syndromes are absorbing ethanol, methanol, acetaldehyde, ammonia, H2S and a host of other toxic chemicals 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I am afraid that dedi

    But how are you comparing the doses in these studies to that received by individuals suffering from gut dysbiosis and gut fermentation syndromes? It is not possible to extrapolate that data from these studies so in the absence of specific research we

    Firstly, let me make it clear that I am a proponent of evidence-based medicine. However, simply because you cannot find a study that 'proves' something does not mean it is not factual - it simply tells us the subject or specifics have not been adequa
