Many people who are physically injured by chemicals (chemical injury) become subsequently hypersensitive to chemcials (chemically sensitive, multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS), environmentally ill). One toxic event or low level exposures to chemicals over time can cause this. The injury occurs when the overall toxic load has gone past the body's limit of coping. After the injury, a short time later, the individual becomes increasingly more sensitive to an ever increasing number of toxins. The symptoms occur after an exposure to toxins (perhaps walking down the detergent aisle in the grocery store), sometimes manifesting after a time period such as hours or even a day. The greatest offenders are petrochemicals, artificial fragrances, pesticides, gases, chemicals in new carpets, formaldehyde, paints, detergents, etc.

Through medical school training and medical journals, many physicians are strongly influenced by the chemical companies who fund the schools and journals. These same chemical companies manufacture both the harmful chemicals and the prescriptions given to mitigate the resulting symptoms. As a result, many chemically injured people don't initially find doctors who can actually help them in their struggle. The purpose of this website is to provide some initial information which might be of assistance to the injured person.

It is my personal belief that if the overall toxic load can be immediately lowered, the injured person has a chance to avoid life long chemical sensitivity, or at least to keep it from worsening too rapidly. Please see 'Emergency' below if that is your situation.

These listings have been gathered from various sources and are presented here with the intent to provide hard won information to anyone whom it may help. If you find that the names, phone numbers, addresses or such are out of date in any way, or you feel there is a significant change or addition which should be made to these resources, please Contact Us.
