*******www.balancedhealthtoday****/xeneplex.html We found that most holistic health doctors recommend two main treatment objectives for people with MCS, or multiple chemical sensitivity. They are: 1) Try to limit environmental exposure to as many chemicals and other toxic substances as possible. 2) Increase the body's nutritional stores to better boost the immune system and help the body to detoxify chemical exposures that do occur. My son always seemed to be on the cusp of developing magnesium deficiency symptoms, despite a much higher than normal intake of magnesium rich foods. I think this is because his body was using up his minerals in the detoxification process. So he didn't really start to get better until we gave him very nutritious foods and significantly reduced exposure to chemicals in his room, at school and around the house. I bought a lot of books on MCS, but didn't find many helpful. Often the authors advocated fairly dramatic and expensive environment changes such as buying all organic clothes, moving to a new house, changing your flooring, etc. But most people with MCS were not born with the condition. It usually seems to have came on after some event or exposure. So if you could live in a house fine for 10 years, then develop chemical sensitivity problems, it seems like the logical solution is not to try to change your whole house but to figure out what inside of you changed that would explain why your house is now bothering for you. *******www.balancedhealthtoday****/products.html

*******www.balancedhealthtoday****/xeneplex.html The specific diet treatment tips we found helpful were: * We kept a food diary to see which foods made him feel better or worse. Trigger foods seemed to be: o Hot dogs, bacon, lunch meat anything with nitrites. I also kept from giving him too many foods with naturally occurring nitrites, though based on his diet diary these didn't seem to be a problem. But I didn't want to take any chances. I always buy nitrite free meats at home, but initially I didn't think the limited exposure to nitrites my son got from school lunches and occasional restaurant meals would be significant. Was I ever wrong on that front. Cutting out the cafeteria lunches and nitrite cured food at restaurants made a significant improvement in my son's health. o Birthday cake - we think it was the dye in the frostings that made him sick. The preservatives and high levels of sugar probably didn't help either. o For some reason chocolate doughnuts really made him worse. * My son seemed to have the least problems with MCS when his pH was within a normal range. * I made most meals from scratch when possible. I bought a rotisserie to cook up organic meat ahead of time for him to take in his lunch to avoid the nitrites in processed lunch meat. I also bought a rice cooker to make up big batches of organic rice. * I started making my son's lunch each day, packing it with whole, preservative and dye free foods from home instead of letting him eat at school. It is ironic that school lunches often consists of high fat, high sugar, nutrient poor processed foods laden with preservatives, considering the number of links that have been established between poor diet and behavior problems at school. One of the frequent meals at my son's school is corn dogs, a food loaded with fat, salt and nitrites. *******www.balancedhealthtoday****/products.html

*******www.balancedhealthtoday****/xeneplex.html * Buying dye and perfume free laundry detergent. * Buying only all wood furniture to avoid formaldehyde fumes from pressed woods. My son develops headaches and wobbly eyes (nystagmus) whenever he is around pressed wood. * Buying chemical free soaps for hand washing at the health food store. * Keeping the windows open in the house during the day, weather permitting. I especially keep the window in his room open to let it vent. * We moved out many of the plastic and vinyl toys from his room like his Lego collection to reduce his chemical exposures. We keep some stored in boxes in the garage and a smaller set in the family room which has more ventilation. * Washing his bedding frequently to limit his dust and mold exposure. *******www.balancedhealthtoday****/products.html

*******www.balancedhealthtoday****/xeneplex.html Environmental treatment tips that helped my son's chemical sensitivities (MCS) included: * Keeping the windows open to our new van when it is parked in the garage overnight to help it air out and get rid of the "new car smell". New cars are sources of a variety of potentiality toxic chemicals including formaldehyde and benzene. Japanese automakers, including Toyota, are currently striving to reduce the number of harmful chemicals found in new cars. * Using only natural pesticides around the house. I noticed my son had more health issues right after signs went up at his school that the buildings had had been treated with pesticides. I guess it is good they put the signs up, but that still didn't help my son any. This whole idea of regularly spraying schools with toxic pesticides seems crazy to me. I think for many children they are creating a worse problem than the one they are trying to solve. A few cockroaches never killed anyone, but people getting headaches, asthma attacks and other bad reactions from pesticides are not uncommon. *******www.balancedhealthtoday****/products.html

*******www.balancedhealthtoday****/xeneplex.html * We made organic meat a larger part of his diet to help with his cysteine and zinc levels. We usually try to get our nutrients through foods rather than supplements, but in the end we did give my son very small amounts of ground zinc supplements. He doesn't like to eat a lot of meat, so it is hard to get him the RDA of zinc from his regular diet. * I bought organic foods as much as possible. * We limited sugar and any foods with dyes or preservatives as much as possible. According to Sherry Rogers, a doctor who specializes in environmental illness, people who eat lots of junk foods and sweets invariably have lower levels of vitamins and minerals needed to activate the detoxification enzymes. * I found some glazed walnut at the store that my son liked to snack on. Walnuts are high in omega-3 fatty acids , which are supposed to be good for people with MCS * We had always limited his soda intake to parties and other special events, but during his MCS recovery we eliminated it completely. Soda contains phosphates which can reduce magnesium levels. * I've tried to have him avoid whole grain foods and brown rice. I know it goes against conventional health wisdom, but there are some studies that show the fiber and phytates in whole grains reduce mineral absorption. We seem to be okay with the fiber in beans and produce in my family - it's just seems to be whole grains, like oatmeal and whole wheat bread, that give us problems. * I suspect cooked and mashed foods are easier to absorb and get nutrients from. I noticed my son would feel better after eating mashed pinto beans. I've read that pinto beans have high amounts of magnesium. I think the mashing makes the beans easier to digest. I know a lot of people advocate raw food diets these days, but I don't think they are the best types of diet for everyone. I've tested out different diets with raw foods and cooked foods for my family and cooked foods come out to be the clear winner for us. I tried to get my son to eat a lot of home cooked soups. I think the long simmering process in soups is good for killing toxins such as bacteria and yeast and also helps make the soups easy to digest. Plus the medley of ingredients provide a wide range of highly absorbable vitamins and minerals. *******www.balancedhealthtoday****/products.html

*******www.balancedhealthtoday****/xeneplex.html We found the most helpful solutions for my son were to make minor adjustments in the house and his environment, but most importantly to change his diet to build up the right nutritional stores to help him improve his immune system to cope better with his environment as it existed. For example, we found that if my son had a hot dog at lunch with nitrites, and then was exposed to car and bus fumes coming home from school, he would get sick from the exhaust fumes. However, when he stopped eating cafeteria food and started taking his lunch with nutrient (especially magnesium) rich foods without preservatives, then the car fumes from the line of cars in the passenger loading zones at his school would not bother him. I suspect that the nitrite and other chemicals in the cafeteria lunches were using up some of his store of minerals and vitamins used to detoxify both nitrites and car fumes. So by not expending his nutrient stores to detoxify the preservatives from the cafeteria lunches at school, he then was better able to cope with other toxic substances he was exposed to such as car fumes. *******www.balancedhealthtoday****/products.html
