COMPASHION

MANY MANY OF US OUR PETS ARE OUR MCS — AWARENESS ALERTS– AS MANY OF OUR ANIMALS– LET US KNOW WHEN PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE LET INTO OUR MCS SAFE HOMES— ( BUT DO WE ALWAYS LISTEN TO THEM??????????)  WE DON’T MANY TIMES WHEN WE SHOULD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“What I find the hardest about training and keeping my dogs respectful is not dealing with the dogs themselves but dealing with the humans out in public that we come across. The natural behaviors of a dog are so misunderstood and misread that everywhere I go humans do things that make it difficult for someone who does have well-balanced dogs to keep them respectful at all times. It is easy for me to control my dogs but it is not easy for me to control all the humans around them.” AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“You own a dog; you feed a cat.”

“Any time you think you have influence, try ordering around someone else’s dog.”

MY DAD USE TO SAY– “THEY ARE SO STUPID — THEY REALLY THINK THEY CAN BOSS SOMEONE ELSE’S DOG AROUND”!!!!  :)

WE ALL HAVE KNOWN THOSE KIND!!!!!!  :)

“Intelligent dogs rarely want to please people whom they do not respect.”

“A dog is nothing but a furry person.”
“Acquiring a dog, may be the only time a person gets to choose a relative.”

OUR GIRLS— MISSY– MANDY– & MOLLY!!!!!!!!!
I KNOW ALMOST ALL OF MY HUNDREDS & HUNDREDS OF MCS SISTERS HAVE A PET OR PETS AS FAMILY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK— SOME OF THE QUESTIONS I HAVE WRITTEN DOWN FROM MCS SISTERS ARE:

1. DO YOU KEEP AN A MCS SAFE HOME?????????

YES——- BUT SOMETIMES WE BECOME VERY VERY STUPID & ALLOW OTHERS INTO OUR MCS SAFE HOME– THAT DON’T UNDERSTAND MCS OR ARE SAFE– & THEN YOU NO LONGER HAVE AN MCS SAFE HOME!!!!!!! IF YOU DON’T HAVE AN MCS SAFE HOME– YOU HAVE NO SAFE PLACE IN WHICH TO REBUILD YOUR HEALTH & GET BETTER!!!!!! IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO RECOVER FROM EXPOSURES– WHEN YOU HAVE NO PLACE TO AVOID EXPOSURES TO TOXIC CHEMICALS!!!!!!!!!!

2. WILL YOU HELP ME SET UP AN MCS SAFE HOME???????

I GET THIS QUESTION MANY TIMES A WEEK———-

THERE IS LOTS OF INFORMATION ON THIS BLOG ABOUT SETTING UP AN MCS SAFE HOME— BUT COMMON SENSE IS –GO THROUGH EVERY SINGLE ROOM IN YOUR HOME– IF IT IS TOXIC & OR MAKES YOU ILL– GET RID OF IT!!!!!!!!!! JUST THAT PLAIN & SIMPLE– ANY TOXIC CHEMICALS– CLEANERS– PERFUME– ANY FRAGRANCES– FABRIC SOFTENERS– LAUNDRY PRODUCTS– THE LIST GOES ON FOREVER AS ALL HOMES– HAVE TOXIC CHEMICALS IF THEY HAVE NOT BEEN REMOVED!!!!

AND IF YOU DON’T WANT TO GET RID OF EVERYTHING THAT IS TOXIC & MAKES YOU ILL FROM YOUR HOME —- THERE ISN’T ANYTHING I CAN DO TO HELP YOU— JUST THAT PLAIN & SIMPLE——-

I RECEIVE THOUSANDS OF E-MAILS A DAY— ALL PEOPLE WHO DO WANT HELP— IF YOU DON’T WANT TO HELP YOUR SELF– I CAN’T DO IT FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!! I HELP AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE– BUT SOMETIMES THE LOAD IS OVER WHELMING——

 

3. DO YOU READ ALL OF YOUR E-MAILS????????

NOT ONLY– NO–- BUT HELL NO——– WHEN I OPEN MY E-MAIL BOX– I MAY HAVE OVER A 1,000 E-MAILS– EACH TIME I OPEN MY E-MAIL BOX—— THERE IS NO WAY I CAN READ THEM ALL OR ANSWER THEM ALL—— EVEN THROUGH MANY DON’T BELIEVE IT– GARY & I DO HAVE A LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!  :)  WHEN I OPEN MY E-MAIL BOX & THERE ARE 1,000 E-MAILS  I PRESS DELETE ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  :)  SORRY– THAT IS THE ONLY WAY I CAN LIVE &– I HAVE A LIFE!!!! IF MOST OF YOU KNEW HOW MANY E-MAILS I TRY TO ANSWER A DAY– YOU WOULD BE OVER WHELMED ALSO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4. WHY DO YOU PROMOTE SOME PEOPLE’S BOOKS & NOT MINE????????

Little Things Matter: The Impact of Toxins on the Developing Brain

Little Things Matter: The Impact of Toxins on the Developing Brain

http://youtu.be/E6KoMAbz1Bw

Published on Nov 11, 2014

We’ve been studying the impact of toxins on children for the past 30 years and reached the inescapable conclusion: little things matter. We’ve discovered that extremely low levels of toxins can impact brain development. We have also discovered that subtle shifts in the intellectual abilities of individual children have a big impact on the number of children in a population that are challenged or gifted. Steps should be taken to reduce children’s exposure to toxins or suspected toxins.

Multiple Chemical Sensitivities – being a hairstylist with environmental illness

THANKS FOR SHARING—- I ALSO HAVE MCS BECAUSE I WAS A COSMETOLOGIST FOR MANY YEARS & ALSO WORKED FOR A HAIR COLORING COMPANY!! THERE IS NO DOUBT I HAVE THE MAIN MCS HEALTH PROBLEMS THAT I DO — DUE TO BEING A COSMETOLOGIST!!!

After my exposure to formaldehyde from the Brazilian Blowout in 2011, the chemical poisoning I experienced resulted in various health problems, including sensitivity to chemicals. Over the years, the sensitivity started to become worse.

By the month of May this past spring, I developed severe MCS (Multiple  Chemical Sensitivities) after visiting a recently renovated home that exposed me to various toxic chemicals. That was the tipping point, and

Fragrance Free Means . . .Fragrance free means more than “No Perfume”.

THIS IS STOLEN FROM MCS GAL– (STEPHANIE) OUR MCS SISTER– IT IS SOOOOO GOOD– I DIDN’T JUST BLOG A LINK TO HER BLOG– I BLOGGED HER WHOLE POST!!!!

BUT HERE IS A LINK!!!

Fragrance Free Means . . . – MCS Gal

http://sensitivetochemicals.com/fragrance-free-means/

THANKS STEPHANIE— LOVE YA!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Fragrance Free Means . . .

English: Perfume formulas 1910

Fragrance free means more than “No Perfume”.

I have come to the conclusion that going fragrance free is a learned skill.

Why you need to be fragrance free

My chemical sensitivity has required me to reduce chemicals in my life and fragrance is one (or 50 – fragrance is made up of a combination of chemicals) of those chemicals. It has taken time to eliminate problem chemicals from my home and my life. I would eliminate one thing just to discover something else was also causing me problems. I understand why someone who is not chemically sensitive has a hard time getting it right the first time or the second time or the third . . . but my health requires that you keep trying if you want to be around me.

Since I am chemically sensitive, I need to protect my health which also means protecting my home and my car (they are my safe places). Until I know that you understand what fragrance free really means, don’t be offended if I don’t invite you into my home or I don’t offer you a ride.

As hard as some people try, most are not totally fragrance free. I know my friends and family are learning so I try to give them the benefit of the doubt. If they have an offending chemical, I know it is because they didn’t know or understand. I have supportive family and friends and they keep getting better at being fragrance free and they are teaching others.

My reactions to chemicals makes me sick but my reactions are not life threatening. Some people with multiple chemical sensitivity have life threatening reactions to chemicals so being fragrance free is not a request, it is a necessity. (FOR MYSELF SONDA IT CAN BE LIFE THREATENING)

People with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity understand what fragrance free means the same way a doctor understands medical terminology. A doctor uses a medical term and forgets that most people don’t have a full understanding of what it means. Those of us who are chemically sensitive request fragrance free and sometimes we forget that most people think fragrance free simply means “no perfume”.

Fragrance Free means:

  • No perfume or cologne. That means you have showered and washed your hair with fragrance free products since you last used perfume or cologne.
  • You have used unscented personal care products such as soaps, lotions, shaving products, hair products including shampoos, gels, and hairsprays. Anything you put on your body needs to be fragrance free.
  • Clothes are free of fragrance (no scented laundry detergents or fabric softeners). If you have worn that outfit while you also wore perfume or other scented personal care products, that outfit will still have fragrance chemicals. That outfit will need to be washed (using unscented products) before I can be around it.
  • Your coat or sweater that rarely gets washed most likely will cause me problems, especially if you use products containing fragrance. Maybe you don’t use scented products but your coat was hanging next to a perfumed coat or a smoker’s coat on the rack at work or the doctor’s office – that is enough to affect me.
  • If you burn scented candles or use air fresheners in your home or in your car, you are wearing those chemicals. I will have trouble being near you.
  • You may not use scented soaps at home but you just washed your hands using the scented soap in a public restroom. That is a problem.
  • The gas on your hands or shoes from filling your gas tank affects me.
  • You got caught downwind of a smoker. Those chemicals are in your hair and on your clothes.

Did I forget anything?

What is your definition of fragrance free?

EXCELLENT INFORMATION STEPHANIE——– THANKS FOR SHARING!!!!!

I BROKE MY RULE OF NOT LETTING ANYONE IN MY MCS SAFE HOME—-& I HAVE PAID FOR IT———– BIG TIME!!!!!!!!! REALLY BIG TIME–STILL TRYING TO GET MY MCS SAFE HOME SAFE AGAIN!!!!!!!!

PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE THAT OUR MCS SAFE HOME IS OUR ONLY SAFE PLACE IN THIS WORLD!!!!!!!!!  WE CAN’T REBUILD & GET BETTER IF OUR MCS SAFE HOME IS COMPROMISED!!!! AS OUR MCS SAFE HOME IS THEN POISONED WITH THOSE TOXIC CHEMICALS!!!!!

Researchers Confirm Multiple Chemical Sensitivity is Poisoning, Not Allergy

HELLO——- HELLO——— HELLO——- HELLO———

why aren't you listening

Researchers Confirm Multiple Chemical Sensitivity is Poisoning, Not Allergy!!!!!!!!!!

Researchers from Japan have confirmed that multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) is not an allergy.Rather, MCS is a condition in which individuals suffer with symptoms when exposed to low levels of toxic chemicals in the environment. Several studies have shown that people with MCS are unable to break downthesetoxicants efficiently, a function the liver normally serves.Researchers suggest that patients having allergic diseases may easily suffer from MCS at the same time or MCS may strengthen symptoms of allergic diseases. And though MCS and allergies may both occur in some people, they do not both occur in all people with one or the other condition.Individuals who visited a specially built facility for Sick House Syndrome were examined in the study. Allergic rhinitis was the most popular allergic disease in the possible cases of MCS.

The key is understanding which is which so that proper targeted treatments may be selected. Testing is critical to making a proper diagnosis.

There are two types of reactions that may occur to the same chemical in different individuals:

Chemical Allergy

Toxicity (MCS)

In chemical allergy, the individual is actually allergic to the chemical and immunoglobulin E (IgE) is elevated. This is the type of reaction that would most readily respond to treatments such as low dose antigen therapy (LDA), nambudripad allergy elimination technique (NAET), and other allergy desensitization techniques.

In MCS, IgE is not elevated and the reaction is not allergic in nature. Often the reaction is of a toxic nature and results in neurological symptoms as opposed to typical allergy symptoms such as sneezing, itching, watery eyes, and inflammation.

This neurological effect is what makes MCS disabling. The lack of IgE (allergy) renders MCS irresponsive to such treatments as LDA and NAET. Avoidance of chemical triggers is essential to maintaining functional capacity. This is often difficult to achieve as fragrances and chemicals which have neurotoxic effects are all around us.

It may appear that MCS is improving from allergy treatments in individuals who suffer from both allergies and MCS. When the allergic condition improves, it is not impacting the MCS condition as severely. The converse may also be true.

The most important information this study provides is confirmation that MCS symptoms are not easily treatable with allergy remedies. This also negates the perception that individuals with MCS overreact to what ails everyone. MCS is, based on studies showing impaired detoxification, quite literally, more attuned to chronic poisoning.

 TOXIC PEOPLE

The most important information this study provides is confirmation that MCS symptoms are not easily treatable with allergy remedies. This also negates the perception that individuals with MCS overreact to what ails everyone. MCS is, based on studies showing impaired detoxification, quite literally, more attuned to chronic poisoning.

Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) is basically a subset of Environmental Illness (EI), which is caused by living in a toxic world. The chemicals that were synthesized after World War II (including, pesticides, synthetic fragrances, cleaning products, detergents, etc.) are mostly “petro-chemicals” (petroleum based) and are quite toxic to humans. There have been virtually no studies done on the majority of these chemicals to see how they affect humans – the industry just placed the chemicals in the environment with the assumption that they are “safe, till proven toxic”, instead of the other way around. One of the biggest offenders is PERFUME and other scented products. Did you know that many of the ingredients in your perfume are the exact same ingredients found in GASOLINE??!! I didn’t either! The scary thing is that the perfume industry is NOT REGULATED at all – they can put any number of chemicals in fragrance without revealing what those chemicals are – or how they affect humans. We humans are all participating in a giant “lab experiment” against our knowledge and against our will, and it’s making some of us VERY sick.

Those of us who are becoming chronically ill from these chemicals are similar to the “canaries in the coal mine”. Coal miners would take a canary into the mines with them to warn them when the air became toxic. They knew that when the canary stopped singing or died, it was time to get out before it affected them as well. We “human canaries” are here to warn the rest of you that, unless you start making changes and avoid as many toxic chemicals as possible, you too may become very sick. Non toxic living

is actually much “simpler” and cheaper!

Don’t be fooled, these chemicals are affecting ALL of us in some way or another. Think about the last time you got a headache for no apparent reason. Could it be possible that someone had recently sprayed perfume or pesticides near you without you knowing it? Had you recently used scented laundry detergent or Clorox to clean with? Do you get headaches or feel nauseous from being around people wearing perfume or cologne? Do you feel you need to hold your breath when you go down the detergent aisle at the grocery store? All these things are your body’s way of telling you something is wrong with the air you’re breathing. While an MBA in health care may help you understand the whys and wherefores of the medical issues it doesn’t take a masters degree to listen to your body and know that things are not right.

It’s like playing “Russian Roulette” – you never know how long your immune system can hold out before breaking down. Some people may never reach the point of “chronic illness” that I did – but most people are being affected, possibly without realizing it. Cancer has increased dramatically since World War II (after all the chemicals came out). Attention Deficit Disorder is on the rise (more and more of our children are being put on toxic, brain-altering drugs like Ritalin when simply cleaning up their environment could solve their problems). Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Alzheimer’s Disease, Allergies, Asthma, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, and Multiple Sclerosis are also increasing. All these illnesses could very well have a chemical connection to their cause or, at the very least, these patients would benefit from using less-toxic products. Pretty much any “immune system” disorder could be helped by a cleaner environment and by using safer products.

The products we use on our skin are absorbed directly into the bloodstream (the reason why nitroglycerine, nicotine, and hormone patches work). The chemicals we breathe (such as perfumes, formaldehyde, pesticides, etc.) all go straight to our brains and can cause low-level to severe damage – similar to how someone can snort cocaine or glue to get a “high”. Start reading labels – check for petro-chemicals, formaldehyde, and fragrance, and avoid them as much as possible. A clue that an ingredient may be a petro-chemical is the “prop” prefix. A clue that an ingredient releases formaldehyde is “Quaternium”. Be careful about products labeled “fragrance free” or “unscented”. Don’t trust them! Read the label and be sure they don’t list “fragrance” or “masking fragrance”. Don’t put anything on your skin you’d be afraid to eat, because the end result is the same!

Before I got sick, I had no clue that I was slowly being “poisoned” by products that I assumed were “safe” since they were on the market! If this could happen to me – YOU COULD BE NEXT.

Am I dating myself with this phrase? How many of you remember the Calgon commercials? Back in the day before I became sensitive to chemicals and realized all the stuff these products contained, I loved letting Calgon take me away! Today is one of those Calgon take me away days. It started with my grandson sitting on my wicker love seat cushion and wetting through his diaper forcing me to remove the cover and wash it and take care of the inner cushion.
