We started this site in order to share information we have learned over the past 25 years in dealing with Allergies and Multiple Chemical Sensitivities. We will try to provide you with the latest and best articles, news and resources dealing with natural approaches to allergies and sensitivities of all kinds. We have found that the current accepted ‘medical’ approaches, at best, only mask your symptoms and create a ‘time bomb’ of other problems that will explode if not dealt with naturally.
The good news for all of us sufferers is that as more and more information becomes available, more and more natural cures are found and more and more people are made aware of the toxic elements that are being poured into our environment daily.
We have to state here that we are NOT affiliated with the Medical Industry in the USA, nor trained in that industry. Our journey has led us away from what is accepted practice in that industry and led us to the natural process which has worked much better for us. Most of the information you find on this website will be information on approaches that we have personally tried, or have seen recommended by ‘natural’ healers, or have read about from people interested in achieving good health naturally. Very little of the information will come from the Medical Industry, except for ads that are automatically rotated into our site.
If you feel overwhelmed at times with your condition, and confused as to which way to turn, try to remember this. Life is going to shovel “dirt” on us, all kinds of “dirt”. When a chronic illness develops, the “dirt” may take on the form of insulting comments by well-meaning friends and family, loss of finances/dignity/credibility, and loneliness. This can be further compounded by the disbelief of others in the severity of the disability, feeling misunderstood, and experiencing sadness and anger over losses. On top of this, your Medical doctor may scoff at your attempts to use Natural cures. Some may even experience persecution for attempting to ‘cure’ themselves without the use of the Medical Industry, by using Natural methods. It is during these times that we must remember the story about the donkey in the well.
Donkey in the Well
One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.
He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down.
A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.
As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!
The lesson the donkey teaches is two fold.
The trick to dealing with life’s “dirt” is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. No matter how deep the well, we can get out just by shaking it off, stepping up, not stopping, and never giving up!
The second lesson is that when you do something hurtful and try to cover your ass, it always comes back to bite you.
Living with multiple chemical sensitivity, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and other chronic multi-system illnesses can be a challenge, both personally and in the community at large. Daily challenges may seem overwhelming; however, by taking one simple step at a time, using a natural approach, anything can be overcome. I hope that you will focus on the next step and never forgot the story of the donkey! The donkey serves to inspire us to greatness!
