    I am new here. I read that "detoxing" may help an attack. I am in a bad one. Had to cancel nearly all my plans this week. How do I go about detoxing? All help is much appreciated!

    Do carbon/charcoal filter masks help your MCS?

    Sandy

    I used charcoal mask from the hardware store a few different kinds and then graduated to a half mask respirator p100 mixed filter. That seemed to work but I could not find new filters and can't buy the upgrade to the gas protector filters where I bought the mask they don't have any in stock tried to buy the upgraded gas filters online but they won't sell them.. guess they are only for firemen and terrorists... bet they can find them. This one failed me when needing to take a cab filled with febreze... the driver showed me the can he opened all the windows and I put my head out but it was too late I am still trying to recover. I have bought two 3m respirators filters easy to get... P100 NIOSH filter... bit leary now of how well it will actually work.... What can stop febreze? Anything?

    Thanks for the encouragement, Maff! I do have an "I Can Breathe" mask that I use in crowded situations. I had the "Protection Plus Nasal Filters" for a year while I was still trudging around the office. Do you think if we wear a mask around public places as much as possible, it might help recovery time? Did you have to get toxicity testing routinely while you recovered? For myself, the worst part is feeling intoxicated, anxious, irritable and untreatable headaches. In the interest of focusing and moving forward, I'm going to look for some counselling, and medical treatment for my digestion issues. I can't help but wonder which came first, but possibly: Food allergy->Candidiasis->New job and MCS. Candidiasis recurs every few months so is the most draining on my energies. I'll check out the links and other posts shared, it's all very encouraging! Cheers, Robyn_WC88

    Good that you find a way of more controlling the products you are using. Good luck with your battle Dawndy! Maff, i have looked at my blood results from a few months ago and i have noticed that my Molybdenum is very low. After reading your article it makes more sense to me know! (www.ei-resource.org/articles/candida-and-gut-dysbiosis-articles/the-candida-aldehyde-detox-pathway-and-the-molybdenum-connection/) I will start supplementing molybdenum along with Pantethine to break down the toxic waste products of the candida.

    Chem Trails in the UK

    Interesting document Jodie! It seems the UK government is very keen to discuss the issues raised they relate to Climate Change but dismiss entirely all of the specific questions regarding chemtrails and potential environmental and health consequences thereof. A typical response I suspect!

    Any success with brain retraining?

    October last year my TSH was 4.3. As of today it is 3.8 !!!!!! Yah. Success. So yes, for me the Gupta programme is reducing the stress in my body. I sweat now, which I didn't before and my gut operates normally. Sensitivity and symptoms are still getting less and less. Obviously my body is in healing mode.

    Martin Pall Response to Baseless Wessely "MCS Sufferers are Hermits" Paper

    I am with CazNZ in asking who indeed has paid for this so called information-study-paper? He who pays the piper calls the tune, something we are all too sadly aware of. Speaking personally, I find this a great worry as it was not that long ago that early papers written by Simon Wessley discrediting CFS/ME and Gulf War Syndrome as being a personality disorder rather than having an organic cause had been put into archives far away from the public gaze. Hardly surprising as diagnostic procedures have advanced considerably and proved him WRONG. Has he learned nothing, or is he being paid so much he simply could not turn it down? The mind boggles. Sir Simon is clearly unwell.

    Oh and Jodie, yes the discussion Caz referred to is directly below this one in the list of discussions at the link you posted (group homepage) on my computer. I have no idea why it would not be the same on yours! Hopefully something else that will clear up with updated site software ;)

    Which treatments might help MCS?
    Started by Maff Wednesday, 18 January 2012 6 Replies

    I'm eliminating coffee, tea and sugars etc because it is recommended when taking the Pall supplements and doing the Gupta Program. I'm hitting this "nasty" cycle from both ends. Like Maff I don't think there is a "magic" pill. When I last posted I thought the "firing" pain had stopped. In fact, it can still come but it takes a lot longer for my body to respond. Nevertheless, I can now "stick" my nose right onto something that I have a severe reaction to, get the full-blown reaction and then manage the reaction. Within 10 minutes 60% gone and after 30 minutes at least 85% of the reaction can be managed with the Gupta exercises. I am still wearing my mask when out and about though because it takes a lot of effort and time on my own to stop my body responding. The best thing to eliminate is not necessarily in the diet but in the head . . . negative thoughts and feelings that make everything even worse. We should all eat well (with minimal chemicals), be kind, accepting and loving to ourselves and realise we are on a journey.
