After more than 5 months of solid work I am delighted to welcome you to the new version of The Environmental Illness Resource!
When I decided it was time for a new site I really didn't appreciate the work it would involve. The original site which I started in 2004 had grown to a total of 1200 pages which all had to be copy and pasted to the new site once I'd got the design and database system set up. This copy and pasting alone took over 2 1/2 months.
Now it's all finished I have to say I am very pleased with the result....I hope you will all agree! When I first had the idea of building my own website about my own illness back in 2004 I never envisaged I'd end up with what The Environmental Illness Resource has now developed into. With the new site registered users can get involved and add to the site in numerous ways including commenting on articles, writing reviews, and writing a blog like this one! There are of course forums, as well as a community system that allows you to get to know fellow registered users (don't worry, registration is free!).
If all this sounds a little complicated when the brain fog is getting the better of you, don't panic, just visit our help section
As those of you who have been regular visitors this year will know, Gloria Gilbère has been contributing a regular column to the site. Gloria overcame health issues including fibromyalgia, leaky gut syndrome and multiple chemical sensitivity by using a natural approach. She now consults with clients worldwide as a naturopath and has written a number of bestselling books on environmental illnesses and natural healthcare approaches. In the future I hope to add similar columns from other leading healthcare professionals who specialize in environmental illnesses. One such individual who has expressed an interest in writing a blog is Prof. Pamela Gibson. Prof. Gibson is Professor of Psychology at James Madison University in Virginia. She has conducted extensive research on the impacts of multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) on a sufferers life. She is the author of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity: A Survival Guide which I highly recommend.
I hope you find the new look site helpful in your quest for health and look forward to reading your contributions. If you have any problems or questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Best of health!
