The Incurable Patient:MCS, EMHS and allied challenges
British Society for Ecological Medicine – www.ecomed.org.uk Report by Michelle Berriedale-Johnson
The BSEM’s autumn meeting was organised and chaired by Dr Apelles Econs who sketched out the situation of the ‘incurable patient’ familiar to many members. Most have compromised immune systems, a long list of foods they cannot tolerate, gut dysbiosis and nutritional deficiencies, markers of disordered cell chemistry and suffer from anxiety and/depression. Many also present with MCS (multiple chemical sensitivity) and EHS (electromagnetic hypersensitivity); it was the purpose of the meeting investigate these aspects.
Modern day electromagnetic
frequencies and human health
EHS, heavy metals and synergistic toxicities
It only needs a concentration of 0.27µm of mercury to suppress lymphocyte activity in many organs and nerve cells, 0.18 µm concentration leads to oxidative stress, yet levels of up to 2.5µm have been found in the human body.
Psychological trauma – is it
relevant to MCS?
Measurable cell changes
connecting MCS and EHS
Potential implications of nano-technologies
Albert Donnay from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Referral and Resources (www.mcsrr.org) in Baltimore discussed what he terms a multi-sensory sensitivity syndrome and its connection to carbon monoxide poisoning.
