Treatment and prophylaxis for patients suffering from environmental hypersensitivity disorder.


The author is discussing therapeutic modalities used by environmental physicians. Much emphasis is directed towards the need and methods to control the patient's environment in order to improve his/her health. Unique neutralization techniques to help patients cope with environmental exposures are presented. Importance of nutritional evaluation and correction as well as the 4-Day Rotation Diet are introduced. (The author realized that some of the foods mentioned are not on the market as yet in Poland but the idea can be adapted to available foods and a developing economy will increase diversity). The treatments should always be combined with psychological therapy and support. The paper ends with a discussion of global prophylaxis of environmental illness as it should be applied at home, school and work. All sectors of government and social institutions should be involved. Environmental medicine should be on the curriculum of medical schools.
