Reading google reviews it seems that things went downhill after dr rea passed
Has anyone been a patient recently?
Anyone cured of autoimmune illness?
Not enough news in IL. so are you all o.k. down there?
Hope yall made through the tornado, okay.
As many of you know on May 11, 2019, Niagara Falls was lit up yellow and green for MCS Awareness. We'd like to thank the Niagara Falls lighting committee for their support.

Please join us in watching the lights from a few different views as we chat about what MCS is.

This is also another great opportunity to share with your friends and loved ones, to educate people who may not understand Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. Thanks everyone!

Any recommendations for air purifiers for the car?
Save the date: NTREG will be honored to have Dr. David Lary, Physics Professor at UT Dallas, speak about his air quality monitoring projects and initiatives at our Feb meeting. For those not able to attend but interested: check the event page later or the NTREG downloads page directly in case we can get the presentation slides posted.

Clean air advocates, EV owners/enthusiasts, and anyone interested are welcome and encouraged to attend and connect with Dr. Lary.

See the event page and discussion there for more information now; additional announcements will follow.

So sad to hear of Dr. Rea's passing, yet grateful for all he and the rest of the clinic people have done over the years for those of us challenged with 'mystery' problems.

I never got to see him as a patient but watched many of his videos. I was just reaching out to find out about coming to the clinic, when I heard the news... :(

I have been unable to reach anyone related to new patients. Does anyone know if the clinic is still accepting patients? Was anyone trained to take over for Dr. Rea??? I did finally speak with a woman who gave me a phone number for a Dr. Spurlock (whose office I contacted but they are not affiliated with the Health center at all... now I am confused)

Any help or direction anyone has would be greatly appreciated!!!!! (I am in the Philadelphia area at the moment, so if you have a recommendation a place like the clinic here (I know how rare that is :) ) I would be open to that too!

Thanks in advance!!!! -Terra
I wanted to let the staff know, that as we think of Bill Rea, we are also think of you all. We are grateful for the loving care exhibited by everyone mentioned below (and others who are no longer at the EHC, who once helped us). We know that you have gone to extremes to accommodate us. Many of you deal with their own sensitivities and needed a safe work place, many found themselves here and were excited by this science, but you ALL cared, showed us compassion and gave unselfishly. We know that. You could have had it easier elsewhere and I want to extend a thank you for all you have given us. I think there is a special place in heaven for you!

Implant syndrome by Stephanie McCarter MD

Over the years, the American public is becoming bionic due to the advances in surgery for end stage diseases.There are many synthetic implants with over 200 various types available. These implants include dental fillings, metal implants, abdominal mesh,, intrauterine devices (IUDs), vascular grafts, heart valves, false teeth and eyes, lens implants, artificial joints and repair material for trauma and arthritic conditions. Some people have implants by choice for cosmetic reasons, while others need an implant to replace a body part that has been removed, such as in dental implants.People can have up to four or more synthetic implants,which can disturb homeostasis. Synthetic implants help many people, but they can also cause harm.

Some of the patients who receive implants develop severe chemical sensitivity and chronic fatigue as well as autoimmune diseases, headaches, anxiety/depression, cognitive dysfunction, hormone imbalances, thyroid disease, arrhythmias, and chronic infections. These conditions occur due to immune system dysregulation and the connection between these conditions and implants often goes unrecognized, especially since these conditions develop over years post implant. Malfunction of an implant and the connection with a person’s sensitivity to its materials and inflammation secondary to the materials are also missed. Additionally, the mammoplasty syndrome from both paraffin and silicone has been associated with autoimmune disease and chemical sensitivity.

At the Environmental Center of Dallas, over 200 patients have been seen who developed documented food and chemical sensitivities after receiving breast implants. One hundred of these patients had their breast implants removed and intradermal neutralization of the synthetics accomplished, which helped reduce their sensitivities markedly. The other one hundred patients left their implants in. Despite also receiving intradermal neutralization treatment for the synthetics, those patients’ clinical courses were much rockier and the patients were more fragile with a greater propensity for multiple health problems including recurrent sinus infections, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue. (Rea, WJ 1996. Chemical Sensitivity Vol. 3, chapter 19, p 1195. Chemical Sensitivity Rea was 1997, Vol.4 , chapter 41 p2803). This is a good clinical example of why our patients need to be removed from the source of toxicity prior to treatment.

A classic model for the induction of chemical sensitivity has now been devised. The surgical use of artificial implants can induce autoimmune disease and chemical sensitivity. Animal and human studies of artificial organs as long as 30 years ago showed tissue reactions, which caused local fibrosis as well as triggering of the clotting mechanisms. This was graphic when metal, Teflon, and Dacron were first used for heart valve replacement. Anticoagulation is still used to prevent this potentially lethal condition. Since the early use of artificial implants was confined to life threatening procedures where the individual would either die or lose a major organ, this fibrotic or clotting complication and long-term anticoagulant treatment were justified. As surgery became more expansive, it was thought that silicone injections and then silicone implants could be used for cosmetic purposes. However silicone injections of the face and breast are often fraught with many complications including severe inflammation and tissue sloughing. Following these silicone implants, synthetic meshes of various plastic materials were used in repairs of large hernias. These synthetic meshes were moderately successful and their use spread to repair smaller openings.

Metal implant allergy and hypersensitivity has been documented in many published studies but again often goes unrecognized clinically as a cause for immune system dysregulation. It is associated with chronic infections and autoimmune disease developing often years after the implant- which can be a cause for implant failure. Metals are known to act as adjuvants that can trigger immune dysregulation. Dr. Yehuda Shoenfeld describes an autoimmune /inflammatory syndrome I (ASIA) induced by adjuvants, which include aluminum and silicon. Many of the conditions described by Dr. Shoenfeld including Gulf War Syndrome and myofasciitis are examples of increased spreading of chemical sensitivities and inflammation due to metal hypersensitivity and immune dysregulation. These conditions improve with removal of the inciting agent which is the implant J Autoimmune 2011: 36:4-8.

When metals lose their outermost electrons to form metal ions, as occurs with corrosion, they become water-soluble haptens which have a strong affinity for sulfhydryl proteins like those in the skin, and organs like the brain, and collagen-containing structures like the extracellular matrix. The extracellular matrix is an end organ of the autonomic nervous system, which influences immune, vascular, and endocrine functions. Metal sensitivity can affect all of these systems. Localized and general Inflammation caused by metals and implant materials can be mediated by humoral antibodies or sensitized lymphocytes. (Handbook on the Toxicology of Metals: 2007, pp 197-211) Metals modify cytokine production and can lead to increases in IL-1, TNF-alpha, IL-6 (Encyclopedia of Immunotoxicology 2014 972-2). The immune system responses can explain the conditions that often develop after a patient receives an implant such as chronic fatigue, cognitive dysfunction, eczema, dermatitis, fibromyalgia, chronic infections, chemical sensitivity, headaches, severe pain, and autonomic nervous system dysfunction. IMAJ 2014:16. 753-758

Autonomic disease with arthralgia, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and organic brain syndrome has been seen upon examination in the majority of patients with breast or implant material. These symptoms subside with the removal of the implants and their capsules. However injection therapy for secondary sensitivities to biological inhalants, synthetic implant materials, foods, molds, and chemicals along with heat depuration physical therapy (sauna) is necessary in some patients.

The metal implant syndrome does not appear to cause as severe antibody reactions as the silicone but they can trigger both food and chemical sensitivities. The metal implant syndrome is seen particularly in jaw, hip, and knee implants as well as with screws, plates, and other metals often used for trauma patients.

An increasing proportion of patients with metal implants are being diagnosed with Lyme disease. The chronic infection with these pathogens is thought to be secondary to a biofilm that develops over time due to the presence of the metal ions. Any surface is found to be susceptible to biofilm growth, but rougher and more hydrophobic surfaces will accumulate biofilms more rapidly. These bacterial biofilms can grow to reach thicknesses of 100 mm. The depletion of nutrients that can easily occur at the implant surface results in a slow growing stationary state that can render the biofilm up to 1000 times more resistant to most antimicrobial agents when compared to the single bacteria cell. (Med Sci Monit (2012) 18(6):RA89–96, Biomatter (2012) 2(4):176–94). Lyme organisms like Borrelia burgdorferi secrete extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) to shield the bacteria from environmental stressors and form these biofilms which are often induced in the presence of metals. (Biomatter (2012) 2(4):176–94, Lancet, 358, 135-138, Science, 284, 1318-1322). The first active Lyme infection of a prosthetic joint was published in 2016. (Open Forum Infectious Diseases vol. 3,2 ofw096. 12 May. 2016) More studies need to be done to investigate this possible connection and implants and chronic Lyme infections.

In other people with chronic disease, it is necessary to skin test all of the implant components with provocation neutralization technique as some of the minor metals can trigger severe pain such as molybdenum. Reactions to metal implants are usually easier to treat with provocation neutralization immunotherapy than those of organic synthetics like silicone, Dacron, polyethylene, polypropylene, Teflon and acrylics. If the patient already shows signs of multiple sensitivities and he or she needs an implant, the components should be also be skin tested prior to surgery with intradermal provocation neutralization technique. Sometimes the manufacturer can then fashion the implants without the offending substances. An alternative to provocation neutralization testing is a MELISA test that is a lymphocyte transformation test showing memory cell proliferation response to different metal components and shown to be more accurate than patch testing. (Neuro Endocrinol Lett. 2006 Dec;27 Suppl1:17-24, 31-35). MELISA test kits can be ordered on www.melisa.org/order-our-test-now/. However, provocation neutralization is more accurate in identifying sensitivities and helping patients de-sensitize and build tolerance to the materials. (www.worldallergy.org/education-and-programs/education/allergic-disease-resource-center/professionals/allergy-diagnostic-testing). The Environmental Health Center of Dallas offers provocation neutralization testing to metals and implant materials. Other providers performing provocation neutralization testing can be found on the American Academy of Environmental Medicine website: www.aaemonline.org.

Since implants are becoming commonplace, the physician should not overlook artificial implants as part of their diagnosis in chronic degenerative disease and/or chemical sensitivity. Problems with mercury in the teeth and amalgam fillings have been common knowledge as initiators and propagators of disease. Now one has to consider the various metal and synthetic implants as possibly triggering and propagating chronic diseases and / or chemical sensitivity. Removal when possible and intradermal neutralization (when the implant is necessary) should be advised.
