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.
Hi Cort, (thanks for helping me become a new member) I also pushed exercise way too hard back in 1997, which I think contributed to my immune system deteriorating and wicked MCS. But ironically it is now light resistance exercise that is helping me.I have it. It came on about 10 years in when I was really pushing it with exercise.
Got horribly bad for a couple of years - impacted just about everything - and is better now but I still cannot sleep inside...
If anyone has found anything other than avoidance that helps I would love to hear it.
Dr. Cheney used to use Neurontin.
What conditons do you have besides MCS?Miyarisan has almost completely stopped MCS for me.
I was suffering severely from laundry perfumes, cigarette smoke (even third-hand), kerosene fumes, "air fresheners". Now I avoid them because I know they're harmful, but I don't get strong reactions.
Three weeks off of the Miyarisan and the severe reactions came back.
ME/CFS, complete with PEM, POTS/Orthostatic Intolerance (Never have really understood the difference), IBS, brain fog.What conditons do you have besides MCS?
That makes sense to me nowadays. I have CIRS (aka "mold exposure illness"), which is essentially what happens when you have a chronic biotoxin exposure but your immune system fails to respond appropriately, i.e. fails to produce sufficient antibodies against the toxin. The biotoxins (especially mold toxins) impair your ability to detoxify many other things, hence MCS. And the biggest reason for having a crippled immune response is chronically elevated SNS/trauma/stress hormone levels, which is why some people make remarkable recoveries with neural retraining or other stress-reducing approaches: their immune systems start working properly, the biotoxins are destroyed by the immune system, and things start working properly again.Here in Japan, the prevailing attitude is that MCS is some sort of flaw in the sufferers. Like an allergy, an improper immune response. However, there is much research that suggests that though MCS is clearly a hypersensitive response, it is not improper.
