MCS Visitors Guidelines 2008
|MCS - ASEHA MCS Publications|
These guidelines are intended to provide information to people who are likely to visit a person with MCS. The guidelines cover a description of what MCS is, how it comes about and what you can do to help. These are aimed at family, friends, professionals and service providers.
At all times remember that chemically sensitive persons are very sick because they have been poisoned. The reactions are real, they are not imagined. Always treat a chemically sensitive person with dignity and respect because their value and worth as a human being is deserving of that. Treat them as you would like to be treated yourself in that position.
