 Learn More About this Book Below  

There are precious few books dedicated exclusively to understanding and living with this diagnosis.  If you or someone you love has MCS, Pamela Reed Gibson’s book can be a brilliant resource. If you are new to the diagnosis or if MCS has been a reality in your life for years this survival guide can assist on your path toward Thriving.  

"Multiple chemical sensitivity is a controversial medical diagnosis characterizing individuals who experience intense and adverse responses as a result of exposure to chemicals, frequently at doses far below those known to cause harm. This book reviews what is known about MCS, describing the symptoms, detailing possible explanations for it and giving step-by-step methods for coping with the illness."


“Professor Gibson has written a book of solid scholarship and compassionate understanding about an illness that desperately needs both. This is a highly readable work offering inspiration and a wealth of knowledgeable advice to those afflicted with this difficult and frequently misunderstood modern health problem. It is a remarkable thing: A book about MCS by a psychologist who knows that the illness is not psychological.”

— Lynn Lawson, M.A., Staying Well in a Toxic World
