Body odor.

What is body odor? What makes someone smell clean? In our society, we equate a perfume-y, fragranced smell with clean and normal body odor as dirty. My boyfriend has not washed with soap in five years. He was nervous when we first met that I would think he smelled bad. On the contrary, I actually really loved his smell. That's because his diet is pure and he has minimal exposure to toxins in personal care and other types of products. So there is no bad smelly stuff to sweat out. Just normal human smell. I much prefer it to nasty chemicals in fragrances that are just masking over dirt. If you smell bad enough to want to use perfume, take a good look at your diet and lifestyle and start cleaning those up before you reach for the carcinogenic chemicals in fragranced products.   reposted from http://planetthrive.com/members/blog/earthwalker

so this is how it is.

This is a post from my Planet Thrive blog from last month. Thought it would be good to share here so people can see how others are living with MCS.   Not sure how my life came to this. I have 3 outfits, all thin and worn, ripped and stain, unwashed for 4 months, not warm enough for winter. I have no bedding except 1 thin and narrow shawl that does very little to keep me warm. I sleep on a 1" thick chair mat on the cold tiled floor. My pillowcase is stained brown from not being washed for months and months. I don't tolerate the water in my home. I have to go to a friend's house to get drinking water, 1 gallon a day. I get filtered water from the local stinky supermarket, then heat it on a hot plate and wash my hair in the tub...
