Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia

Is Febreze really good for your health? When I see those Febreze commercials with people sticking their noses right into a freshly sprayed pieces of clothing, old sneakers, curtains or couch, I always say to myself, “Can that really be good for your health, especially our lungs?” Any of those commercial sprays. So I went to their website to get a list of ingredients that Febreze has in their products. Here it is:

1.   Nitrogen – the propellant

2.  Purified Water – processing aid

3.  Alcohol – drying aid

4.  Hydrogenated Castor Oil – spreading agent

5.   Dialkyl Sodium Sulfosuccinate – emulsifier

6.   Polyacrylate – pH neutralizer

7.   Hydrochloric Acid

8.   Benzisothiazolinon – preservatives

9.   Perfume – fragrance

10. Cyclodextrin – odor eliminator

Um, like a breathe of fresh chemicals! So what are these ingredients and what do they do to our health? Do you know dictionary.com doesn’t even have most of these words in their vocabulary, I think we are just coming up new chemical names everyday.

1. NITROGEN is a colourless, odourless gaseous element

– relatively inactive chemically but many of it’s compounds display marked reactivity

– Nitrogen has several oxides

1) Nitrous oxide used as an anesthetic

2) Nitric oxide is a gas used in the manufacture of sulfuric acid, in air it forms nitrogen dioxide, a poisonous reddish brown gas

3) Nitrogen pentoxide forms nitric acid when dissolved in water forms nitric acid when dissoved in wter

Important compounds of nitrogen include nitric acid, ammonia, many  explosives, cyanides, fertilizer and the proteins. Many organic compounds contain nitrogen

 5.  Dialkyl Sodium Sulfosuccinate – wikipedia says it is a common ingredient in consumers products from laxatives, stool softeners, emulsifying, wetting, dispersing agent, pesticides

TOXICITY In humans – strong irritant for the eyes, lungs and skin

– ingestion can cause the side effects above as well as diarrhea, intestinal bloating and occasional cramping pains.

6.   Polyacrylate – CH2–CH(CO2Na) – is a polymer – it’s the fluff in the middle of diapers -can soak up 200 to 300 times its weight

7.   Hydrochloric Acid – solution of hydrogen chloride (HCI) in water, that is a highly corrosive, strong mineral acid with many industrial uses, it is found naturally in gastric acid

– used in the chemical industry as a chemical reagent in the large scale production of vinyl chloride for PVC plastic, and MDI/TDI for polyurethane

– household cleaning, production of gelatin and other food additives, descaling and leather processing

8.   Benzisothiazolinon – Wikipedia says – has a microbicide and fungicide mode of action. Is used as a preservative in emulsion paints, varnishes, adhesives, washing agents, fuels, sealants, plasters, fillers and in the paper making process.

Health Hazards – it is a known human immune system toxicant

– classified as an irritant for skin, eyes, and lungs

9.   Perfume – god only knows what is in that!

10. Cyclodextrin – family of compounds made up of sugar molecules bound by a ring. Used in food, pharmaceuticals, chemical industries, agriculture and environmental engineering. Chief component in Febreze.

So there you have it, it contains a known immune system toxicant, irritant for skin, eyes, lungs, decreases oxygen carrying capacity in the blood, decreased functioning of the thyroid, causes Vitamin A shortage, diarrhea, intestinal bloating, cramping and the fashioning of nitro amines which are one of the most common cause of cancer.

It’s okay if we just ingest a little right?

What we can’t see can’t hurt us right?

Wrong, I think we might be finding some answers to some of these questions:

I don’t know why my stomach hurts?

I don’t know how I got cancer?

Why are there so many diseases?

I used Febreze for an example because of it’s popularity, they most all have the chemicals, some worse. We are breathing in these products, absorbing it through our skin, we are ingesting it.

I think the less of any of the chemical sprays we use the better. If those sneakers are that stinky, perhaps it’s time to throw them out! : ) If the carpet is getting too stinky maybe it should go too!

Candles are another product we don’t suspect enough to be carrying toxins. You can burn essential oils instead.

I grow my own herbs and make herbal bag mixtures that make good moth repellents, help with odours and are great in dresser drawers. You can add a few drops of essential oils. I make herbal bath bags as well and they help with a lot of muscle pain as well as helps you feel relaxed and makes your skin feel amazing.

Fresh herbs are very aromatic. You can buy the potted ones and use them for cooking as well! 

My mother was a sprayer  of Lysol and she died of breast cancer, my father had cancer and I had cancer. You decide! You can bet your babies and kids are ingesting these sprays from the floor cleaners as well.

Fatigue is a symptom of mild deficiency of zinc so perhaps Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue could be helped with the intake of foods containing zinc. Fatigue is a widespread

problem in the world even without chronic illness. Zinc is one of those minerals our bodies do not produce and we need to be replenished by our food intake or supplement. Zinc does so

much yet we hear so little about it. Perhaps because it got a bad wrap from the FDA but if you read the whole story “The Stink about Zinc” you will see that it was based on the topical

use of zinc in a nasal spray that they think caused a loss of smell. Zinc is vital to your well being.

In the book The Healing Foods they link zinc and acne, colds and wound healing.

Zinc: The Healing Mineral

– part of certain enzymes some of which metabolize protein, carbohydrate and alcohol

– helps in making protein and building bones

– affects the senses of smell and tastes

– aids in healing wounds

Symptoms of mild deficiency are:

– poor appetite

– supoptimal growth

– reduced sense of taste and smell

– scaly skin

– delayed wound healing

– fatigue

– hair loss

– diarrhea

– reduced resistance to infection

Some have special need to zinc.

– acrodermatitis enteropathica

A number of chronic health problems may interfere with zinc nutrition, these include:

– alcoholism

– chronic infections

– inflammatory diseases

– diabetes

– kidney disease

– pancreatic disease

– psoriasis

– certain kinds of anemia

Large amounts of zinc may be lost due to

– surgery

– burns

– multiple injuries

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease characterized as an immune response to wheat, rye, barley (gluten and gliadin).

– leads to inflammation to the small intestine and damage and destruction to the villi

It isn’t taken seriously enough, it can be detrimental to one’s health and well being. I suffer in so many ways when I eat gluten, I feel it in my bones, I get numb, creeping pain in my feet and hands (diagnosed as carpal tunnel and neuropathy), I cannot digest it, abdominal pain and distension, intestinal pain, bone and joint pain, headaches and migraines, mucous throughout my body (stool, eyes, throat), sores in my mouth and anemia. It is nasty, I get thinner, paler and weaker. I think a lot of our older population is gluten intolerant but are being treated for neuropathy, arthritis or digestive issues instead of eliminating the wheat. What a shame, life is amazingly different without wheat for me, if you suspect it, give it a try, just eliminate it and see how you feel. Wheat takes months to get out of your system though and if you have been off of gluten for over 5 or 6 months, the test won’t show you are celiac. You have to have it in your system to show up on tests. I have been off of it for 21 years and a doctor just tested me for it and said I wasn’t celiac. Here is what I found:

If the person being tested has not consumed any gluten for several weeks prior to testing, then celiac disease tests may be negative (although this may require many months of gluten-free diet). If the doctor still suspects celiac disease, she may do a gluten challenge – have the patient introduce gluten into his diet for several weeks or months to see if the symptoms return. At that time, celiac tests may be repeated or a biopsy may be done to check for villous atrophy (damage to the villi in the intestine).

I am not putting myself through all that pain, anemia and joint and muscle pain again to see if I have what I know I have. It makes me sick so I don’t eat it. Perhaps a lot of arthritis people have isn’t really arthritis but rather an undiagnosed gluten reaction. I know when I took out the final hidden gluten out of my diet, the nerve pain disappeared. Honestly, I think we eat way too much white flour, what nutrition is in it? Empty calories.

I will be writing a lot more on this topic……will continue……….
