He also strongly advised me to see an environmental illness specialist. As such, I now have to live in isolation in my home to prevent these reactions and the intense pain that occurs after a reaction which can last anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks.
hawk1 Thank You for this information. I am sorry that your reactions are so severe. I am going to try a holistic approach because Ifeel better now that I am taking a natural liquid vitamin. Boo Carlson

Boo, I am interested in the natural liquid vitamins you take. I have tried several liquid medications prescribed by an environmental illness specialist but they did not work. Please let me know what these vitamins are and where they can be purchased. I don't believe they will help with all of the effects I experience once I begin reacting but may help some.

The vitamins I use came from our local health food store, but you could probably buy them on line. They are called Balanced Essentials (94 Balanced Nutrients) by Heaven Sent Naturals. I am also taking Pro-biotics and trying to stay away from foods that are GMO. I also started using natural cleaning products like vinegar, lemon and baking soda. Good Luck

Re: toxic reactions to chemicals in fragranced products not tobacco smoke?

Thank you, Boo. I will call our local health store and see if they carry those. I will also look up information on pro-biotics. Like you, I too have not used any harsh cleaning chemicals in my home. I have a Blue Crown Conure and for years have restricted use of cleaning chemicals in my home to also include using only stainless steel pots and pans (no teflon), never used any candles in my home, did not even use the self-cleaning mode in my oven but rather cleaned it with vinegar and baking soda, as well as many other precautions I have taken. Thank you again for the information you have provided.
