Sensitivity to chemicals

 

Despite a conscious lifestyle or a purely organic diet, contact with chemicals is almost unavoidable. They are hidden, for example, in cosmetics, medicines, cleaning products, tobacco smoke, pesticides, textiles, car exhaust fumes or plastics.

Chemical substances can affect the psyche or have a toxic effect. Studies have shown that chemical sensitivity can affect cognitive thinking, the musculoskeletal system, the gastrointestinal tract, the urogenital tract or the cardiovascular system.
