People who suffer from multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) develop severe allergic reactions to their environments. Solvents, pesticides, fresh paint, new carpets, perfumes, and air fresheners are just a few of the substances that can trigger an MCS attack. Since the sufferer experiences a reaction at doses far below those known to cause harm to the general population, MCS is often hard to diagnose, and frustrated patients are frequently shuttled from doctor to doctor. This book helps readers educate themselves about MCS and find the appropriate medical and psychological treatment. Drawing on the latest research, it reviews what is known about MCS, describes the symptoms, and provides step-by-step advice for coping with the condition, including designing a safe environment, getting professional help, and mobilizing the support of family and friends.
