There is no cure for environmental sensitivities, but it is possible to minimize symptoms. What is the key? To avoid all kinds of contaminants and triggers
as much as possible. Reducing exposure to actual and potential triggers lessens symptoms. Studies show that early diagnosis combined with immediate reduction in exposure to triggers is associated with better outcomes. In this way, many people have been able to regain a level of tolerance to ambient contaminants, bringing about an improvement in their quality of life on a day-to-day basis.
Environmental groups and associations addressing environmental illnesses have made much information available on products to avoid and alternative solutions. There are resources intended specifically to
better manage environmental sensitivities such as, a diary to record expo- sures and symptoms, templates for letters requesting accommodation, examples of fragrance-free policies and advice on how to adapt one’s daily life to the constraints imposed by this condition.
