MCS: The Canary in the Coal Mine For many people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, perfumes and fragrances are the biggest aggravator of their illness. What do people with MCS experience? How can you help someone who has MCS? An informative article to hand to people who may need educating.
The Twenty Most Common Chemicals Found in Thirty-One Fragrance Products Compiled by the late Julia Kendall. Since Julia wrote this in the early '90's, the number of people diagnosed with asthma in the United States has soared from 10 million to over 24 million.

Two articles by Dr. Martin Pall, of the School of Molecular Biosciences of Washington State University:
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome 'Novel chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) theory finally produces detailed explanations for many CFS observations.' A 'Unified Theory' that conclusively explains the underlying cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. (Hint: It's Nitric Oxide!)
ChronicNeurotoxins.com The Visual Contrast Sensitivity Test Center, home of Ritchie C. Shoemaker, MD, the man who discovered Lyme disease. What causes the elevated nitric oxide that in turn causes CFS, FM, MCS and PTSD? Answers- and solutions- are here.
Our Little Place A wealth of articles and resources for the chemically sensitive.
Natural Choices sells very effective household cleaners, laundry products and janitorial supplies that are safe for most people with MCS. A 'must' for everybody who cares about their health, their children, and the environment. I've been using their products for years. Throw away the poisons in your cupboards and use this stuff instead!
Check out these books on Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.
Help for Undetected Hypothyroidism (This plays a big role in MCS, FM, CFS and PTSD.)
Siri Amrit's Homepage My personal pages where I have more health-related links, plus pictures of Old Garden Roses, gardening articles, pictures of my pets (they're really cute!), and more.
How I Beat Cancer When I had breast cancer several years ago I cured myself with alternative medicine. This is a resource paper for people with cancer, with tips for sorting through the myriad of alternative therapies at your disposal so you can become proactive and choose the path that's best for you.
The more I learn about cancer, the more I agree that it's a misdiagnosed fungal infection. This theory is well-documented, and well-explained in this interview: Fungal Link to Cancer (Just enter a bogus email address to get around their advertising.)
I highly recommend the book they mention: The Germ That Causes Cancer. This book is a "must read" for anyone who either has cancer, or wants to be prepared in case they get it.
The Digital Naturopath The most amazing tool! Practical information about every health condition imaginable. This link opens to the CFS/FM page, but you can quickly travel to any other subject from there. Free to browse, but if you want to run an analysis on yourself there is a fee.
Connective Tissue Disorder Website Logically pieces together scientific information to naturally treat such conditions as MCS, Fibromaylgia, chronic neck pain, migraines, nosebleeds, IBS, etc...
A 'must-read' about the importance of Magnesium for conditions including allergies, chemical sensitivities, anxiety, asthma, depression, heart health, migraines, fibromyalgia, and so much more.
Risks of Root Canals Before you get a root canal, read this. If you've had a root canal, read this.
Fibromyalgia The title is Fibromyalgia, but the article discusses what goes on with autoimmune disease in general, their possible causes and helpful natural treatments. He recommends a lot of supplements; don't construe my link here as an endorsement of all of them.
The Aroma Turbo Oven is a great alternative to dangerous microwave ovens. It preserves the vitamins and anti-oxidant nutrients that microwaves destroy, and doesn't create cancer-causing free radicals in your food like microwaves do. Energy-efficient and quiet. I got a factory-reconditioned one from the manufacturer for half price and use it almost every day.
