I strongly reccommend that you read the The Canadian Human
Rights Commission Research Project, The Medical Perspective
on Environmental Sensitivities. (Sears, 2007) Link. It will
help you better understand the issues surrounding your
health care and recovery.
The following are excerpts from this report.
The "General Adaptation Syndrome" model underpins modern
medicine, describing how the body responds to "stressors"
(e.g. chemical agents, vigorous exercise, emotional loss).
If the stress does not kill, initially there is a
"flight/fight" response, then a period of adaptation and
then resistance to the stressor. Eventually, if the stress
continues for long enough, or there is a sudden surge of
stress, adaptive mechanisms are exhausted. This brings
generalized breakdown of body systems and non-specific
illness. Recognition of these universal bodily reactions to
stressors of all types, which are mediated via the
pituitary/hypothalamus/adrenal axis, spawned the science of
Ashford and Miller described this scenario as
"Toxicant-Induced Loss of Tolerance" (TILT), a disease
paradigm affecting a broad cross-section of society,
including veterans of war, workers in many professions and
trades, and children in poorly ventilated or maintained
schools. This toxic overload is treated by reducing the
number of stressors, including chemicals and allergens in
the body, the surroundings, food and water, as well as
electromagnetic fields, currents and radiation. Reduction of
emotional stressors may also help.
The balance of scientific evidence and experience indicates
that environmental sensitivities generally arise from
physiological causes, although there are many neurological
and psychological consequences. Physiological responses to
environmental factors vary greatly among individuals, and
individuals’ experiences must play an important role in
determining treatments. Once environmental factors
initiating and triggering environmental sensitivities are
addressed with safe housing, workplaces, food and water,
then psychosocial interventions may assist people. The
comprehensive biopsychosocial model of medicine, treating
the body, mind and environment, is therefore the most
appropriate and effective framework for treating
