My Journey on Recovering from Sensitivity to Chemicals


Hi. Thank you for stopping by.

If you are here, I assume you have some physical or mental condition disrupting your life at the moment? And perhaps you may be looking for a cure that is like a needle in a haystack?

If that is the case, I can imagine how challenging it is to be in your shoes, because I have been there myself.

In this blog, let me share with you my experiences in:

  • Being challenged with a long-standing physical condition with no cure
  • Coming across a glimmer of hope
  • Cracking open a hole of possibility of recovery

I sincerely hope that what I share here on an ongoing-basis, would be helpful to you in someway.

Long-Standing Ordeal

I have been suffering from sensitivity to multiple chemicals, or MCS, for more than 20 years.


In particular, I would get headaches, dizziness, nausea, breathing difficulties, skin and eye irritation, whenever I am in contact with chemicals in the environment including:

  • shampoo
  • hairspray
  • handcream
  • detergents
  • fabric softnerers
  • deodrants
  • air fresheners
  • insecticides
  • paint
  • solvents
  • furniture
  • bed mattresses

among many others.

Just like a sommelier capable of sniffing subtleties of wine, those with MCS like me can sense different chemical odors and scents.

And so, I became homeless after having moved 52 times. Also, I lost my job. Plus, I could no longer do the things I loved to do like 

  • going to theaters and museums
  • taking ballet and yoga classes
  • singing and acting in theater troupes
  • working out at gyms
  • flying and traveling
  • staying at various hotels
  • dining with friends

And the list just goes on...

In other words, it became next to impossible for me to be out in the public or inside buildings where chemicals are present. I no longer had a life nor a place where I can just be.

Isolation became the norm. Being around family members became difficult.

Desperate for help, I had gone to so many doctors and clinics, but to no avail.

Moreover, I left no stone unturned: I tried just about everything that was out there:

  • ayurvedic treatment
  • accupuncure
  • chiropratic
  • Ti-Gong
  • various massages
  • past life regression therapy
  • Family Constellation therapy
  • wave water 
  • color therapy
  • sound therapy
  • breathing exercises
  • diet and fasting
  • TM meditation
  • astrology reading
  • various spiritual and self-help workshops
  • sweat lodges
  • psychic reading
  • clairvoyant reading
  • healing
  • channeling
  • flower essence 
  • colon cleansing

But none of it worked, really.

As a result, I became completely exhausted and depressed from years of faituge and helplessness, and was about to give up. I felt like I was permanently confined in a dungeon, never to see the light.


A Glimmer Of Hope

However, at this darkest moment is when I say a silver lining in the dark, gloomy cloud: I found Dr. Joe Dispenza's video on Youtube!

In particular, this was a video titled "Healing by Thoughts Alone."

He talks about

  • The power of the human mind: how thoughts can heal you or make you sick
  • The placebo effect: by simply believing in a thought that you are receiving a real substance or treatment can heal you

In addition, I watched a few other videos of his, and learned that so many people have healed themselves from disease like cancer, multiple sclerosis, parkinson's disease, lupus, irritable bowel syndrome, etc. 

The facts and information shared on his videos convinced me that this was my WAY OUT!

So, I immediately signed up for his online intensive and progressive workshops just two weeks ago. And I am currently watching them with utter awe and delight.

At the same time, I am doing the meditation following his guidance on the video, feeling and sensing the person I want to be, and thanking for it in advance. 

In other words, I am visualizing an average ideal day as vividly as possible.

And guess what?

I think I am starting to experience some changes already, although it may still be just a tiny, baby step!


Has A Hole Cracked Open?

After a week into listening to his intensive workshop videos, I took on an interpretation assignment from a client. I had been working for this client for several years, and had a very good business relationship with them.

However, as scents and fragrances of cleaning and personal care products grew stronger in general, I became more and more sensitive.

And as those products became widely consumed, some of the client members' started using such products to which I was reacting.

Thus, I was not able to work for this client for a while.

But since I was running out of money from 5 years of homelessness, hotel-hopping and globe-trotting, in quest for clean air and a breathable room, I had to work.

So I showed up on the day of the assignment, bracing for impact, anticipating the conference room would be smelly and that I'd become ill.

But Lo and Behold!

I didn't sense any scent at all!

Can it be that they had stopped using such scented products? Or, can it be that I have become somewhat desensitized?!

Whichever the case, I was able to sit in the room for an hour without being affected whatsoever!

What a surprise! This was a completely new phenomenon!

If someone like me who was dreading for decades over seemingly an incurable disease, can make a breakthrough, wouldn't you agree that you may be able to as well? 

I am looking forward to how things unfold as I continue working on transforming myself with the aid of Dr. Dispenza's workshops. 

I'll be unpdating my progess as I go along in this blog series.
