Multiple Chemical Sensitivities

"A diagnostic label for people who suffer multi-system illnesses as a result of contact with, or proximity to, a variety of airborne agents and other substances."

We have the most comprehensive assortment of detoxification and cleansing treatments available. Using our Individualized Constitutional Medicinesm approach, it is possible to help the body decrease reactivity by strengthening weakened detoxification systems and help you get back to a normal life.

Understanding the multi-factorial nature of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, the major goals of treatment are –

  • Decrease reactivity
  • Detoxify organs and tissues
  • Restore innate detoxification ability
  • Support affected organs/ systems
  • Provide symptom relief

The body’s threshold is not fixed – it can be lowered by stress, infections, lack of sleep, lack of exercise, as well as exposure to chemical substances. Over time, people with MCS may react to a widening array of things in their everyday world – foods, pet dander, house dust mites, pollen, mold, synthetic fabrics, and electromagnetic fields. This is why our Individualized Constitutional Medicinesm approach, which looks at the complete system, is so effective for people with MCS.

Our facility was designed to be environmentally friendly and provide you with a calm, clean, convenient, low-chemical healing environment. We designed our clinic with the needs of MCS patients in mind.

More Information On MCS

Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) is an adverse reaction to potentially toxic chemicals in air, food or water, at concentrations generally accepted as harmless to the bulk of the population.

People with MCS have detoxification mechanisms that have been seriously compromised, most likely from a combination of environmental insults superimposed on inefficient genetic detoxification pathways. Once the excessive reactivity develops, then it can “spread” so that the body now either reacts to a wider range of chemicals over time or develops dysfunction in more organ systems. The immune system has a threshold which, once reached, will precipitate a variety of other symptoms in response to toxicity.

People with MCS have physical and mental symptoms that are far ranging – including fatigue, concentration or memory difficulties, irritability, nervous tension, depression, daytime drowsiness, food cravings, insomnia, headaches, nasal congestion, muscle and joint aches, ringing in the ears, gastrointestinal distress, and palpitations. People suffering with MCS have demonstrated physical effects such as enzyme deficiencies, airway changes, nasal lavage effects, restricted blood flow to the brain during chemical exposure and others.
