Uncovering the Root Cause of MCS/EI – Discover the real culprit that compromises your immune system and causes the devastation of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and Environmental Illness.
When Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and Environmental Illness first began to be noticed, it was a mystery to the medical community. They developed the position that their immune systems were compromised by something. But no one was interested in uncovering the root cause of MCS/EI.
Pesticides were the first thing they blamed. So they created a whole industry based around avoiding things. A person would begin to be allergic to things, and then it would continue to progress, or rather, digress until they were allergic to over 100 different items including their clothing, their food, drink, the air they breathed, their environment. It just goes on and on.
There were so many industries that grew up around this that were trying to help. But they were actually making matters worse and charging an incredible amount of money to accomplish nothing. They would tell people at the end of spending their life’s savings that there was just no hope for them. They’d recommend moving into the Arizona desert where the air was dry and clear and get an RV or something, or even just sleep under the stars. And many of them do.
There were millions of people suffering from this kind of illness, but nobody knew what to do with it or how to get real healing or lasting results.
My first encounter with MCS/EI
When I came across my first case of MCS/EI, I was told by the individual that their exposure to pesticides had compromised their immune system. They said that because their immune system was damaged, they came down with MCS/EI.
So while I was flying across America to try to help this person, I asked God to give me some direction. I opened my Bible, and He led me to Proverbs 17:22.
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones. Proverbs 17:22 KJV
The word “medicine” means a cure from the original Hebrew text. But then it says a broken spirit dries the bones. So I realized that a broken spirit has the ability to affect our bones.
I already knew from Proverbs 14:30 that it could be that envy and jealousy could cause certain types of osteoporosis or loss of calcium. That loss of calcium would be rottenness of the bones. But what did it mean in Proverbs 17 about drying of the bones?
An astonishing revelation
Drying of the bones would be in the marrow. Red corpuscles and white corpuscles are created in the marrow. This person wasn’t anemic, so it wasn’t a red corpuscle issue. But white corpuscles are a vital part of the immune system. So this scripture didn’t say that pesticides or chemicals destroy the immune system, it said that a broken spirit does.
When I arrived at my destination, the person asked me if I had any insights into their disease. So I asked them, “In your childhood, did you suffer in loss of relationship maybe with your father or mother? Were you victimized in any way? Was there something in your life where you didn’t feel safe?”
Where fear comes in
I knew from 1 John 4:18 that fear comes out of not being adequately loved.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18 KJV
There is no fear in love; perfect love casts out fear. Fear has torment – that would be the mind, body connection. Fear can impact our bodies.
Then it says, “He that fears is not made perfect in love.” So that means that people who have this kind of fear are unable to give and receive love without fear.
The real battleground
So in this process of understanding this person’s spiritual battleground, I was wondering: Is it possible that a broken heart is where a person doesn’t feel safe in relationships? Is it possible a broken heart represents an area where a person was damaged by someone who was supposed to love them but did not? Maybe that’s why they retreated into a world of fear.
Today I understand the spirit, soul, body connection much more clearly, and it’s an important place to go in this conversation about MCS/EI. But back then no one had stopped to think that maybe MCS/EI wasn’t just a physiological problem.
I had nailed the heart of the issue
So in response to my question, I got a bucket full of tears from this person. They had a tragic story from their childhood that was still haunting them. That began the process of allowing them to face these fears and forgive the people who had hurt them. They had to recognize and understand that the people weren’t evil, but the things that were in them made them do evil things, and that is what victimized them.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12 KJV
They had to understand the level of separation that Paul taught in Romans when he said, “I don’t do the good things that I wish I would do. But the evil that I wish I wouldn’t do, that’s what I do. It’s no longer I that do it but the sin that dwells within me.”
19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. Romans 7:19-20 KJV
That was an apostle talking about the battleground. The battleground is not in the body, but in the spirit and soul first, then the body is affected. To reset our bodies, we have to deal with the spirit and the soul first. We have to defeat and change the mindsets that have programmed us.
A profound healing
That person was healed after they forgave their abusers and faced their fears. God healed their broken heart, and they realized that they weren’t guilty; they were just a victim. This person was healed in seven days after a total of ten years in isolation.
The role of victimization in MCS/EI
You see, victims always feel guilty, and then they isolate. They don’t want to be victimized again, so they separate themselves from others. They begin to isolate and avoid people. But that avoidance soon digresses into avoidance of food and chemicals and environmental factors.
One of the great things that we’ve been able to achieve in working with these people is that we can help them to become vulnerable again. They can be exposed to the toxicity of others and not be personally affected because they understand, it’s not them anyway. It’s not the person; it’s the thing manifesting in them that causes the victimization. These people who are making victims of other people don’t understand their own thoughts either.
The physiology of fear
After, I began to study the mind, body connection of fear, anxiety, and stress. I found out that unresolved fear issues can release cortisol into a person’s body. Ongoing and continual cortisol release can create a lot of damage to the body’s systems, especially to the immune system.
The Word says that there is no fear in love, so if you don’t feel loved, then fear comes and tries to isolate you. But what you don’t see is that now the cortisol has an immediate effect on your immune system, it produces cell death. It kills your macrophages and killer cells and creates excessive b-cell activity, which produces the connection between antigen and antibodies. More and more antibodies are made and cause your body to start to excessively react to things that it should not normally react to. You are being programmed to be allergic because your immune system is out of order.
There are cases of MCS/EI that are triggered by excessive exposure to chemicals that may have caused physiological damage. This can be a door point also to fear which will affect their physiology and keep their body and spirit from being able to recover. When these people are restored to God and others in the broken areas of their lives we’ve seen God heal and restore their bodies as well.
We try to manage the symptoms rather than digging down to the root of the issue.
So you are being programmed both biologically and psychologically to have an allergic reaction. But what do we do? We chase down the allergic reaction and try to manage that without any regard to what is really causing this phenomenon.
Many people that have come to me over the years with advanced MCS/EI will have a white blood cell count as low as 700. It should be running at 2000. That shows how much cortisol can damage an immune system. That immune system is not continually being suppressed and damaged by pesticides or anything that you’re breathing in or eating. That is the lie of it. It is being suppressed and damaged continually by fear coming out of broken relationships and not feeling safe with people or oneself.
God is the healer of the broken heart
The Bible says that God is the healer of the broken heart. Did you know that there is no fear in God? Why? Because God is love. I don’t care what religion or the failures of man has made Father God look like, that’s a lie too. The Bible says God is love. That would be the Father who is love because Jesus came to show us the Father. He said, “If you’ve seen me, you’ve seen the Father.” So we are responding to love. You should not be afraid of Father God.
But He has that name, Father, doesn’t He? And lots of times it was the fathers who weren’t there, victimized their children, or abandoned them.
The first essential steps of overcoming MCS/EI
The beginning of the journey of healing from MCS/EI is renewing your mind, then opening your heart to forgive. Forgive others, forgive yourself, and understand that you don’t have to be a victim. When you’re a victim, you internalize your victimization. You are not guilty!
And if you are guilty, guess what you can do? Come to the love of the Father, the Father of all spirits and say, “Father, I’m sorry, that was not my heart; that is not what I wanted to do. I repent for my fear and for doing things to protect myself and building walls that keep me from your love and from loving others. Please forgive me.” And He will forgive you, just like that. He’ll never bring it up again; it is finished. Then you must forgive yourself too.
The renewing of the mind is critical because taking back your ground, or we call it Walk Out®, is not being ruled by your allergic reactions, but understanding what is causing it. Thousands of people have been healed from MCS/EI when they begin the process of taking their peace, forgiving others, forgiving themselves, opening themselves up to be vulnerable again so that they can love without fear. And then their immune systems heal. I’ve seen as many as 100 allergies disappear from a person in 24 hours when they opened their heart at this level.
A misunderstanding of healing
Here’s a place where there can be a misunderstanding of healing. We always think that healing is a snap of your finger, and it’s done. But healing can also be a ‘reversal of a process’. And in defeating MCS/EI you must realize that the allergic manifestations are secondary to the pathway of thought that is destroying your immune system and triggering all of these things. If you make it primary, you’ve lost the battle before you’ve even started.
Often, people who have MCS/EI are already preprogrammed by support groups and an industry that has been binding them even further to fear at a high expense. So you have to unwind that programming of your brain. The only way to do that is to take in correct information that is superior to the inferior mindset. You have to make the mindset of fear and avoidance inferior.
So you get to switch your mindset from making food, your environment, chemicals, or whatever else is your ‘enemy’, and instead, make fear your enemy which came in from a broken heart.
The Word of God says that God has not given you a spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7 KJV).
And according to 1 John 4:18, perfect love casts out fear. We have to do the great exchange. We can recognize that imperfect people surround us just as we are imperfect. They may not even know that they are imperfect; they are just doing things the only way they know how. But now we have access to a perfect Father because of what Jesus did.
God is drawing you in to be healed
Psalm 139 says that before you were even conceived, God knew you. So at this point in time, Father God is drawing you to make your peace with Him through Jesus. You can’t come to Him unless the Spirit of God draws you. That is His love that is drawing you, not fear. He loves you.
Why don’t you take time right now in faith to say, “Father, you’re the healer of the broken heart. Fill me with the knowledge that I belong to you and that you love me. And if you are for me, who can be against me?”
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31 KJV
God’s Spirit will join you
So you’ve done the great exchange, the Spirit of God is right there. I see the Spirit of God coming to heal people. Your heart is being opened to love.
Keep on renewing your mind
The truth found in the Word of God is superior to feelings. The truth is superior to mindsets. The Spirit of God will be right there with you to help you to reinforce this superior way of thinking.
Cast down every imagination, you’re going to weigh and consider every thought. You need to be objective. You need to be in your seat in heavenly places looking down on this, not being absorbed or overwhelmed by it so that your mind can be renewed and you can walk in wholeness in your spirit, soul, and body.
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV
