What I did to be Reaction-Free this Holiday: a Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Update
If you have MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity), you know the devastatingly debilitating effects of being exposed to one of your triggers. The worst for me are bleach, cigarette smoke, and building materials.
Many others will have severe almost life-threatening reactions from dryer sheets, any type of product with fragrance, petrochemicals, and much more.
For those of you lucky enough to be unafflicted by MCS, you may not be aware of the symptoms we feel when exposed. It's not just an irritation. It doesn't cause a gentle cough or a momentary sniffle... we're affected for DAYS or a WEEK or MORE.
Some become bedridden in pain, or migraines, or down with the worst neurological physical fatigue you can imagine, severe brain fog or nausea.
These symptoms leave many unable to work. Unable to function in their daily lives. Unable to not only take care of their families but unable to take care of themselves.
But the worst part of having MCS isn't the debilitating affects. It's having people around you- family and friends- not able to comprehend the severity of the effects of them wearing fragrance or burning a scented candle or spraying bug spray in the house.
And if they are aware, some just don't care. Having to explain this is very difficult and often ends up damaging relationships.
So Here's what happened to me this year
When I went home for Christmas this year, I was expecting to have at least one bad reaction from my family's use of dryer sheets, fragranced lotions and hair products, or scented candles (which my sister was kind enough to remove).
Or at least some nausea and headache from passing someone on the street smoking a cigarette.
To my amazement, I was unscathed this entire trip. After almost constant exposure to dryer sheets and fragrance in my sister's home (and even returning home with the smell on my laundry) I floated on with not one headache.
Not one bout of nausea or tummy trouble.
No severe fatigue or brain fog.
None of my usual symptoms.
WHAT WAS GOING ON??
Well, I'll tell you. My hard work on the Medical Medium Protocol is paying off. Since implementing it February 2017 and being all in April 2017, my body must have done some serious healing.
If you've read my story, you know I've had issues in the past with migraines, insomnia, digestive trouble, vertigo, fatigue, night sweats in my late 20's, and chronically swollen glands- which have all been improved- and I have yet to speak out on how my MCS was doing because I wasn't yet sure.
Well, today I can confidently say that it is at least better. I'm not going to test it any further by going into an Ace Hardware, exposing myself to bleach, or walking through a plume of second hand smoke to find out just how much I've healed from MCS.
Just being able to take a normal trip without feeling like crap or letting it get in the way of time spent with my family is more than I could ever ask for.
I live a lifestyle where I only use natural and homemade cleaning products (like baking soda, vinegar, castille soap).
I don't intentionally ingest poisons in my food or drink (i.e. natural flavors, artificial sweeteners, corn syrup, etc). I don't consume dairy, eggs, gluten, canola oil, or MSG. I juice. I eat mostly fruits and vegetables.
This has gifted my body the ability to better handle toxins when I come in contact with them.
Do I miss coffee, an occasional glass of wine, or chocolate? Honestly, not as much as I would have thought. No cravings for them whatsoever.
Plus, my health and how I feel everyday are more important to me than coffee, alcohol, or chocolate.
Although I do still have more to work on, I never thought in a hundred years that I would be almost freed from all of the symptoms that plagued me.
I know many of you may be thinking that this Medical Medium guy is a fraud or that Mediums can't possibly exist. And I support your beliefs!
However, if the information that Medical Medium was spreading out into the world was bogus, there wouldn't be thousands of people like me sharing their stories of success. There would be many stories of "one more thing that didn't work".
If it didn't work, I would still have migraines, insomnia, and experiencing the debilitating effects of MCS.
It's not all in our heads. "Oh I've had migraines for years and now they're gone."
These things don't just go away without some kind of intervention.
Sometimes that intervention is conventional or western medicine based. Other times it's Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, Alternative, or Holistic in nature.
All have merit and value. All of these methods help people suffering and THAT is what we are after, isn't it?
This time, it just happened to be from information received from Spirit.
Whether you believe this is bogus or not, just be happy for me that I have this win. Celebrate with me.
Have gratitude that there are things we can all do to help our suffering. Be hopeful that you, too, can have a big win when it comes to your health.
Cheers to us all on our own unique health journeys (with my glass full of freshly pressed homemade celery, apple, and cucumber juice)! May we all become healthier and better versions of ourselves ❤️
To your health and healing,
