In Reply to: I keep having this problem with reacting to chemicals in home, posted by Chy on March 30, 2000 at 09:13:32:
: and I wonder if anyone else is having the same problem? I have had several same bouts with reating to perfumes, cleaners, paint fumes, and since December it's been wood added to the list. I had an major reaction back then and am now having another major reaction. I have gotten out of my home all the wood that I had the reaction to and it helped so much. As of 2 days ago, it has been building again and yesterday was my worse day. I only have oak left in my home and a few wooden frames which are in an sealed bag for now. Trying to find the culpit is an exhausting and causes my body to become weak from it.
: I had also tried an new dergerent & think it has can possibly on of the culpits. My husband has sealed it into an bag as well & put in spare room. If anyone can help me with finding an detergent for washing clothes safely for me, please let me know. I am at an lost here.
: It's rough any ideas?

My wife suffered from allergies for about 5 years and did all the testing, allergy shots, anti-histamines.The allergies all began when she used a certain hair spray----then she became allergic to almost everything. The list would be too long to type---but it was from house dust -----to chemicals, to all sorts of pollens, pets, grass, leaves, cosmetics, etc.She even had reactions to the allergy shots.I really tought she was allergic to the the whole world.As you know life can be BAD!!!
About that time I became interested in homeopathy and had some success with minor aliments.Then one day my wife had an attack in November,1982--her symptoms were itchy eyes, sneezing(25to50 times non-stop),runny nose, headache.After giving her 3 or 4 cold remedies that did nothing, I decided to treat her based on her symptoms. Three doses of a remedy that closely matched her symptoms helped her that day. She has bouts now and then since then but nothing like the years prior to that Thankgiving Day in 1982.
I suggest you find a Homeopath and get treated. Needless to say I have studied Homeopathic Medicine ever since.
God Bless---WE know what you're going though-----Harry
