About meChemical Sensitivity to scented Detergents and Perfumes is driving me crazy. I am lucky to be able to control my place of work as I am the boss but life outside work is ruled by this condition.
Current health issuesI can pick up the smallest scent that others don't even perceive and it makes me ill. But I had an experience recently which makes me think there is a way out. I was recovery from a cold, I was at the stage where you feel ok but your nose is blocked. I went to public event and stood very close to a lady that was dowsed in perfume and ..NOTHING happened. I did not feel sick - I didn't tremble - I was just fine. My colleague who was with me stared at me in disbelief and kept saying 'Are you ok?' She has seen me when I have a reaction to perfume and she could not believe her eyes. I always assumed that the chemicals I react to are lethal for everybody and it was just my healthy living lifestyle that made me sensitive to it. I must have inhaled all that perfume - so it got into my body and nothing happened. It is obviously a neurological pathway that gets triggered by smell alone. I had tried the Gupta Programme - that's fine if you got all day to meditate and if you can cope with the cult like admiration of the guy - it put me off and I managed to get my money back. I follow the Genotype Diet by Dr D'Adamo and my type the 'Teacher' has a tendency to a lack in a certain liver enzyme which would explain the detox problem. Strangely this enzyme production is stimulated by alcohol - but I stopped drinking a few years ago as it gave me palpitations. There is also a genotype which he calls the 'Explorer' who are prone to chemical sensitivity. I see on your site that someone wants to know if there is a blood group connect. There is and there isn't - the genotype diet is the follow-on to the blood type diet and whereas most Genotypes can only be one or two blood types an 'Explorer' can be any blood type. I am glad I found this site as it offers some real intelligent solutions and I am looking forward to finding my cure. I have got a some questions and look forward to getting some answers on the forum.

Do you have any more ideas re carpet?
I need to do something and cannot think of anything else apart from ripping out the carpet - would just love to know if that may work...
Please let me...
So glad to get an answer. The carpets are still down. I spent two hours in the house with a double mask on this morning hovering up sodium bicarbonate which has been down for three days - made...
Has anyone got any experience in this: I am worried of going through the expense of taking out the new carpet only to find that the fumes remain in the house?
I had carpet fitted to three bedrooms...
