About Environmental Illness (EI)
“Environmental Illness” or “EI” is an overarching term that is used to describe the illnesses and diseases that some people have whose symptoms and reactions occur or worsen when they are exposed to chemicals or substances in the environment (which includes the external environment, both indoors and outside, on other people, and on themselves.) In an EI, something in the environment is toxic and/or an irritant or incitant and can cause individuals to have mild to severe and life-threatening reactions from their exposure to the chemical or substance.
EIs include but are not limited to: mastocytosis, Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS), sensitivities to chemicals and substances, allergies, asthma, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), migraines, fibromyalgia, systemic mast cell disorders, and more.
