Many years ago I was diagnosed with multiple chemical sensitivity and was told that it could not be cured, only managed. Management involved moving as far away from the city as possible and living in an old house. I happened to be building at the time and oh boy, that house was full of toxins.
Living in the country was very interesting as, despite popular belief, the air is not necessarily cleaner. Tourist traffic, trucks, crop dusting, these are just a few of the fumes that fill the air in the country.
The year I moved up there a book called ‘Slow Death by Rubber Duck’ happened to be released. I got my hands on a copy as it was about chemical toxicity from every day living and I needed to be informed.
Oh dear… why did I read that book?! I was having nightmares from it! Where was Cedarwood Essential Oil back then? 😉
I now understood the extreme reality of the toxic world we live in and I was in horror about the house I had been party in designing and having built. There are toxins in everything.
Deodorant was rather scary. It’s full of chemicals! So I bought a commercial non-scented deodorant and found out that it contains more chemicals in it because they add a masking agent to hide the smell. Did you know that male fragrances contain significantly more chemicals than female perfume?
It took me a few years to let go of my fear and accept what I can and can’t control. I now make conscious decisions about what I choose to eat and wear etc
It was rather disheartening having practitioners and specialists tell me there was no cure. What was really sad, was I believed them.
The effects upon my body ranged from brain fog to cognitive issues, which led to physical issues. My body became so uncomfortable I was forced to do something about it. I hadn’t realised it at the time, but I was refusing to believe that nothing could be done.
This is how I developed the willing habit of experimenting upon myself. I tried all sorts of things from conventional to the outright weird. I don’t know exactly when I turned the corner, but over time I began to repair myself. It was so gradual I didn’t see it.
I hadn’t driven a car for more than 20mins at a time in 7yrs and one day I got a ‘bee in my bonnet’ and organised to travel, on my own, to Melbourne and then to Michigan via LA, to do a Radionics course with Stewart and Janet. I had spoken to Stewart once via Skype and he enabled me to literally turn my life around. I arrived at the hotel about 24hrs after I’d left, had only managed 45mins sleep throughout my travels, I had never driven on the other side of the road before, but I drove from Chicago to Michigan and the first thing I did was lie down on the bed and burst into tears, wondering what the hell had I done.
The entire trip was the affirming action that I was on a new path. I spent the next 2yrs fasting, returning to Michigan, working on my mind pattern, releasing ‘toxic’ emotions and memories, building a stronger original me.
Yes, chemical toxicity is real, but only as real as you allow it to be.
What can you do to detox your body? Ohh that’s a huge topic! FIR sauna, fasting, supplements, essential oils for support 😉 etc
