Great Resource

Thanks Aaron for putting in the work to make this podcast. With MCS skyrocketing, people need this information so they can educate themselves and know they’re not alone.

tthiking ,

great podcast!

i recently learned about this podcast - a great resource for those who have this illness and for their friends and family

N Cal Canary ,

Anyone who breathes should listen to this.

This new podcast is a game changer! It is immensely helpful whether you are a sufferer who needs reputable testimonials from physicians who speak on the disease, a life long canary who wants to stay up to date on research, a family or friend who seeks to understand your loved ones, or a work place manager or HR or medical professional or school worker who interacts with a person seeking fragrance free accommodations. As chronic fatigue syndrome/ ME/CFS sufferers , some long COVID patients, those with asthma , going through chemotherapy, and 1/3 of the US population (over 110 million people) also encounter some level of fragrance sensitivity, this is a public health issue that everyone should be aware of. With so many medical professionals untrained , this resource is a much needed way for those with MCS to not feel alone by society’s gaslighting of a very real physiological disease.
