Chemicals & Your Environment!

Environmental Illness (EI)

The harmful things in your environment cause environmental illness.  (This includes pollution, chemicals, and other toxins).  Some of the symptoms include headaches, fatigue, hyperactivity, pain in muscles, legs, or joints, persistent bowel problems, bad breath, constant congestion, twitches, and/or a wide range of behavioral and emotional problems ranging from leg-wiggling to depression.

Chemical Sensitivity

Chemical sensitivity is almost always linked to people with food allergies.

Some reactions include:

  • Becoming weak (some become extremely fatigued)

  • Become red and puffy beneath the eyes

  • Some hunch over

  • And there can also be the obvious behavioral change (because the chemicals mess with the brain)

Other symptoms include:

  • Whining

  • Hostile and aggressive

  • Crying

  • Complaining

  • You overall just feel bad and miserable

These reactions occur within seconds of exposure to a chemical.  They can occur in over an hour, and could last weeks (it varies).

Symptoms occur from specific chemical odors:

  • Gasoline

  • Fire smoke

  • Pesticides

  • Sprays (air sanitizers)

  • Formaldehyde

  • Insecticides

  • Perfumes

  • Many more can cause chemical sensitivity reactions.

Common allergic substances include:

  • Phenol

  • Formaldehyde

  • And Hydrocarbons

Sometimes EI's are misdiagnosed as psychological, emotional, or academic in nature.  Environmental illnesses are definitely the unsuspected factor in the increase in health learning problems.
