I feel I must apologise for my recent lack of blogging activity but I'm sure when I explain why you'll understand - plus the reason has given me the inspiration for this post!
As regulars will be aware I have suffered from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) for a long time - since I was 11, so 20 years now. Like many ME/CFS sufferers I am also burdened by adrenal fatigue, low thyroid function, hypoglycaemia, Candida and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) amongst other things. I also suffered from severe Multiple Chemical Sensitivity for a number of years in my early 20s but thankfully was able overcome it (touch wood)!

Our family of 11 lost our home, our possessions, and our health to toxic mold in October 2008. We have been on quest for recovery ever since. Toxic mold is a serious health issue in our country and often misdiagnosed by the medical profession. Little is known about the health implications of fungus.
Our quest has led us to a primarily raw foods diet. We have re-located to the desert. I have a passion to help those who have connected their illness with their environment.

Multiple Chemical Sensitivity awareness is one of the health observances for the month of May. MCS is also variously known as Environmental Illness, Idiopathic Environmental Intolerance, and 20th Century Disease. Over the course of the last 8 years I have become acquainted with a number of individuals who are afflicted with this often misunderstood condition. MCS causes many of those who are severely affected to isolate themselves in order to take refuge from the synthetic fragrances and fumes that are ubiquitous in industrialized nations.
