Causes of ES, what supplements/ treatments could help

Someone posted this link here in ES. It's a rather old article 2010, but I think it's still got some good points for treatment of EHS.

Just copy-pasting some ideas for why people develop ES and what could be done:

------------------------
Dr Rea observed that patients with EHS are also often sensitive to metals, mould and chemicals.

According to Dr Rea, exposure to pesticides triggers EHS in approximately 80% of his patients.

Dr Rea treats patients with a range of therapies.

He uses nutritional support–either orally or intravenously– such as multivitamins, lipids and oils.

He uses sauna to help with detoxification and oxygen therapy because most people with EHS, he find, are oxygen-deprived.

-------------------------------

Dr Nagy was treated by Dr Rea and began to detoxify her body and her environment.

She had metal fillings removed from her teeth and removed sources of mould from her home.

Over time her condition improved and today she is obviously healthy and energetic.

----------------------------------

Fatigue, which is a symptom of EHS, is a symptom of mitochondrial dysfunction.

This dysfunction can occur when the process of converting ADP (adenosine diphosphate) to ATP (adenosine triphosphate) for energy is blocked by an environmental pollutant.

Calcium and magnesium are involved in this process.

Dr Monro has found that some children with autism have mitochondrial dysfunction.

Using the Lymphocytes Sensitivity Test, she has shown that young patients have pollutants such as heavy metals and chemicals attached to their DNA.

Some genes are affected more than others.

Dr Monro uses vitamin C and other chelators to help detoxify her patients.

She recommends research into the presence of mitochondrial disorders in autism and environmental sensitivities.

Dr Martin Pall

A former professor of biochemistry at Washington State University, the now-retired Dr Pall presented his theory about the cause of multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) which may also explain the related condition of EHS.

Dr Pall says that there are seven class of chemicals involved in causing MCS, all of which can be shown to increase activity of NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartame) in the body.

NMDA is an amino acid which binds to receptors for glutamate which is found in the central nervous system.

When NMDA receptors are activated, calcium leaks into cells and the result is an increase in levels of nitric oxide (NO) and an increase in peroxynitrate.

Dr Pall refers to this cycle as the NO/ONOO cycle and says it is responsible for diseases such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, post-traumatic stress disorder and multiple chemical sensitivity—which are all related to EHS.

He said, ‘the primarily local nature of the cycle explains how many different diseases can be produced by a single mechanism.

 It also provides explanations for why there is so much variation from patient to patient and for why some suffer from various comorbid diseases and others do not.’

He said that the cycle can be increased by chemical exposures, infection, excessive exercise, allergens and stress.

Some of the agents that have been demonstrated to help undermine this unhealthy cycle—at least for some conditions— include magnesium, fish oil, coenzyme Q10 and ecklonia kava extract.

Dr de Paula is Medical Director of the Clinic of Allergy Nutrition and Environmental Medicine in Manus, Brazil.

He put forward the hypothesis that EHS may be linked to an imbalance of calcium and magnesium levels in the body.

Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include muscle weakness, pain, hypertension, spasms, insomnia sleep disturbance, fatigue, weakness, confusion, headaches, seizures, nausea, anxiety and allergies—all of which are associated with EHS.

Moreover, magnesium supplementation has been found to be helpful for fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, chemical sensitivity and LTS—which are also related to EHS.

Dr Bill Rea reported that 40% of his patients with chemical sensitivity improved after magnesium supplementation.

----------------------------------

Proteins in the body are semi-conductive and therefore the body functions as an antenna.

It is constantly receiving information from environmental sources and produces an identical response to either a molecule or the electromagnetic emission of that molecule.

-------------------------------
Dr Havas suggested monitoring heart rate variability of people before and after exposure.

She cited the example of a woman who was exposed to a DECT cordless phone which operated at just 0.3% of radiation level allowed by the standard.

Changes in heart rate were measured which indicated up-regulation of the sympathetic nervous system and down-regulation of the parasympathetic nervous system.

Dr McCarter is a practitioner of environmental medicine and a former sufferer of EHS.

She said that EHS occurs, not just as a result of exposure to EMR, but also from exposure to pesticides, mycotoxins (moulds) and heavy metals.

The presence of yeast and unhealthy bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract will also increase sensitivity.

------------------------------
Dr Ron Overberg said that EMR changed mineral status in the body and that it was important to compensate for this.

He’s found that symptoms improved for patients given fish oil and magnesium.

He recommends a rotation diet (to avoid eating the same foods on consecutive days) and not drinking with meals. He uses hair mineral analysis to determine what mineral supplements patients require.

------------------------
According to Dr Smith, people with chemical sensitivities are at risk of developing EHS.

Effects are triggered by specific frequencies and are all non-thermal.

 ‘The problem seems to arise when the frequency pattern of a toxic chemical in the body matches that of the person’s electrical environment.

It is the frequencies in the electrical environment which makes the body think it is under chemical attack.’

EHS is often triggered by exposure to pesticides or herbicides, formaldehyde and amalgam fillings.

In summary: an ES sufferer would probably profit from:

- heavy metal detox
- eliminating all metals in the body / mouth

- dealing with mineral imbalance
- dealing with allergies, multiple allergies (gut treatment, microbiome, fixing the gut, diet...)

- taking magnesium (and Calcium? - I would though be careful with calcium)
- dealing with mold in the house and body

- taking Omega 3, fish oils
-eating food without pesticides, cleaning pesticides from the body

- do any treatment involving support of the mitochondria, ATP, oxygenation
- concentrate on detox

- concentrate on nutrition
- try to diminish E smog exposure as much as possible

In sum, nothing really 'new' here, but it's always good to remember.

I concur!
Valuable info,Jinna.
