Re: Chemical Sensitivities
As noted below, Chemical Sensitivities are not an immune issue. I am a Registered Nurse, so, I'm quite aware of the function of the gallbladder. My sensitivities, which are also food related, started following my cholesystectomy. Just wondered if anyone else suffered the same...
In both Allergy Sensitivities and Chemical Sensitivities there is the similar experience of being exposed to something and having a reaction. The difference is the cause of the reaction. One is an allergic reaction; the other is a toxic chemical reaction.
Allergic reactions are the result of a chemical exposure stimulating the immune system to release natural chemicals. These natural chemicals are directly responsible for the effects experienced. However, a toxic chemical reaction is directly the result of the toxic chemical acting on the cells of the body
