What was your general health like other than the MCS when the sensitivities developed???
How long were you having problems with chemicals before you took the actions described above, your self-administered six month intensive treatment???
How sick did you get before you began addressing your MCS aggressively???
After the six months of hard work and one week setback, what has happened??? Over what amount of time???
If you would be kind enough to include these details, it may be very helpful.
It seems that those who are in the best overall health other than the MCS and who can respond immediately and aggressively as you did do the best, especially if they also address any emotional/mental/spiritual issues. Those who delay, take half-measures, fail to grasp the serious nature of the problem, and/or avoid adressing the emotional/mental/spiritual dimension fare far less well. Those with multiple issues take longer and may not recover as completely.
Those who rely on prayer or intuition as well as their own research and practical thinking ability, rather than taking the word of just one or a few alleged experts also seem to do best, as do those with a "can-do" rather than "look whut they dun to me" attitude.
And, of course, those who have the sense to realize that it is a good thing to avoid the toxic stuff our system of things produces as much as possible even if one does not immediately become uncomfortable or incapacitated have learned a precious lesson in listening to what our bodies are trying to tell us. Better an occasional headache or something now than stroke, heart arrest, or cancer later!!! But better as few of those slight symptoms as possible if we want to continue recovering. Sounds like you have your head on straight regarding that, too.
Glad to see another post substantiate these things. Keep checking back occasionally and update us on how you are doing.
