Effects Of Non-food Items and Allergies

>> Sunday, January 25, 2009

As I am wandering around my book on the Feingold Program, by Jane Hersey. I came across the non-food allergies. And I thought that I would share them with you. So yes, allergies are common with non-food products as we all know. The Feingold program is a test on what foods you can eat, and what foods you can't, but sometimes non-foods can also cause a problem. Our bodies absorbs everything in our environment and in turn creates our health and well being. The items listed below can disrupt virtually any system of the bodya and can affect one's health, behavior, and ability to learn. They are as follows:

1.)Carpeting: When it is new, most caprting gives off strong fumes from the fibers and gluew. In time, these chemicals gas out.
2.) Cleaning Products: If you have white vinegar and baking soda, you will be able to clean most surfaces in your home.
3.)Cosmetics: Fragrances and dyes are irritants in many products. Sensitive people may be unable to tolerate the powerful chemicals in nail polish remover and the glues used with artificial nails.
4.) Dry Cleaning: You may find your clothes retain a strong odor of the cleaning solvents. Try to air them outside until the fumes are gone. Some cleaners are offering untoxic alternatives to the powerful chemical known as perehlorethylene.
5.) Foam insulation: Mobile homes are particularly likely to be a problem if they contain urea-rormaldehyde foam insulation since their size and tight construction concentrate the fumes.
6.) Gas stove emmissions: This isn't as potent a problem as kerosene hearers, but gas stoves are generally on the hit list for chemically sensitive families. If you experience symptoms that are especially noticeable in the kitchen, it's a tip-off that the gas stove could be the problem.
7.)Hand Lotion: Highly sensitive people may want to try organic olive oil.
8.)Hotels and Motels: chemicals in cleaning sheets
9.) Moth balls
10.)New car smell so air out before use
11.)New clothing so wash before use
12.)Office Machinery: Copiers and Printers can give off fumes.
13.)Paint: Oil-based paint gives off irritaiting fumes, but so can latex paint.
14.) Particle Board because it contains chemicals
16.)Printing Ink
17.) Scented products such as candle's
19.)Vehicle exhaust
20.)Water for bathing: soft and hard water can become a problem with drying skin.
