Definition: a reaction to certain substances which cause a volatile reaction in the body which can be mild or major. These reactions can be triggered by petrol, exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, cleaning fluids and products, fertilizers and perfume.
Typical Complaints: Coughing, sneezing, wheezing, itchy eyes, nose, throat, tightening of chest, watering eyes, runny nose.
Sensitivity to chemicals and its relationship to CANDIDA: When Candida becomes systemic (it buries through the gut wall and enters the blood stream) it leaves tiny holes in the gut wall which then allow product from the bowel into the blood stream. This is what doctors call Gut Dysbiosis. This sets our body’s alarm bells ringing as product from the bowel has entered the sterile environment of the blood stream and the risk of contamination becomes the primary focus.
In addition to this emergency, the holes also allow tiny food particles from the intestines to pass into the blood which we know can produce food sensitivities, which in turn provoke an inflammatory response in the body. This response engages the body’s policing system into ridding the offending antigens. Whilst our body continually fights off invading debris and food particles from the bowel it is unable to fend off or deal with any other inflammatory response the body may encounter from any sensitivity to chemicals.
If the gut problem were eradicated the body would be able to cope much better with the reaction to chemicals and any side effects would be significantly reduced or ceased.
The Healing Process: Once the overgrowth of Candida has been eradicated through our Candida Program and the gut wall healed, the body’s own prostaglandins (anti inflammatory agents) can be deployed to fight the symptoms of sensitivity to chemicals.
After completing Phase Two of your Candida Program you can chose to include our specific remedies to help your sensitivity to chemicals. The reason we wait until Phase 2 is that your symptoms may completely disappear just by ridding your body of the overgrowth of Candida. This often happens. If however, you have any residual symptoms then we advise you take our Specific Remedies available below which may help further.
