Fibromyalgia and Reducing Chemical Sensitivities

Written by sshowalter.

Effect of Reducing Chemical Sensitivities on Fibromyalgia

Chemicals can be extremely useful substances in our daily lives, but are also extremely toxic. Continual exposure, even in very small doses, to chemicals might well contribute, if not wholly cause the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome.

There are innumerable ways in which you may be over-exposed to chemicals in the environment, but some common examples include:

  • living near or working in a power or other industrial plant
  • drinking, washing or bathing in water that contains toxins/chemicals
  • old appliances that leak
  • living near or working in a factory
  • consuming pesticides or herbicides that often are used to produce foods (Agent Orange is a famously toxic herbicide used in Vietnam War, that is known to cause birth defects, and myriad chronic conditions in adults.)

Research Evidence on Reducing Chemical Sensitivities

Similar to fibromyalgia, some people with chronic fatigue syndrome may at times attribute their symptoms to chemical exposures. A loosely defined condition known as multiple chemical sensitivities, or MCS, might be to blame.
