Anyone else here have MCS too?

Thanks Wayne for the compliment - your post provides good information. So the protocol is similar, as others may not know, NAC is a converted form of cysteine which is involved in glutathione production.

Gluthathione (gsh) plays a big role in this (MCS). Glutathione has a 2 way action, it supports immunity and secondly, it is involved in liver support (detoxification). The immune system holds the first priority in the body so all the support goes to immunity, glutathione plays a key role in immunity.
N-acetylcysteine can boost GSH levels, too.

I suspect that MCS comes about because there's already a high level of toxins being produced endogenously that have to be cleared, so most of the liver's detoxification capacity is already being used, which leaves little to handle more toxins coming in from the outside. My MCS has improved significantly as I've worked on getting my systemic candidiasis under control. I'm fairly certain that mycotoxins are the main culprit in my particular case of ME/CFS.

pbyr, I've also found turmeric to be an excellent supplement. I've been very please with the Turmeric Curcumin Complex from Sam's Club (surprisingly!). It uses a more absorbable form of curcumin.

Your observations are correct, when the immune system is activated, there are very strong toxins produced by it. For example there are oxygen and nitrogen compounds produced, these are used to lyse the pathogens. Lyse means these compounds literally poke holes into organism walls which kills them.

The problem is the compounds toxify us and we need to clear them up. These compounds attack cell membranes which weaken the functions of the cells which leads to lower energy, lower resistance, weakened immunity, lowered ability to detoxify etc. Antioxidants negate the harmful effects of these oxidants and will protect the cells from further damage. And I should mention that pathogens themselves produce toxic byproducts as you have suggested (mycotoxins).

I have gone from being bed ridden to nearly functional by addressing the infection and toxin issues.

Thanks for the tip on the turmeric compound.

Another idea: My son ( second child) was delivered via suction. When they brought him to me, his jaw was very retracted and quivering and his face was abnormally red and not "right." Now I appreciate that these are indications of high neck trauma He had multiple sensitivities as a baby and boy - to everything. How many people with MCS have "neck issues?"


I have MCS too. Background: Hashimoto's confirmed with high anti-TPO ab (max 190), no anti-Tg ab, no anti-TRab, thyroid hormones consistent with hashimotos. Full body MRI showed thyroid nodule, thyroid nodule biopsy showed goiter. Liver ALT above 100 4x in the last 3 years, AST corresponds with ALT and AST never went above 40. Full body MRI showed liver cysts, not consistent with tumor and not consistent with hydadtic cysts. Additional MRI findings: slightly enlarged spleen. Swollen lymph nodes under jaw that started after taking itraconazole back in 2019 and still present today. Krebs cycle is broken with <dl succinate as determined by nutreval testing. Tinnitus upon using a new teflon coated frying pan in China, still present today.

Emeramide really helped for about a month, I thought I was cured but my MCS went back to the way before treatment. ALT lowered from 120 to 40 in a week. anti-TPO ab not affected, lymph nodes got slightly smaller but then went back to before emeramide size.

Ebselen almost completely got rid of my MCS but I still had my chronic fatigue. No effect on anti-TPO ab, made my lymph nodes permanently smaller but they're still there.

Many in the mold illness/CIRS community (including myself) find that our chemical sensitivities wax and wane in proportion to the amount of exposure we have to water-damaged buildings.
