Good News

Friends,

Last you heard from me on here, things were going very badly. Thick in the battle with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, I was reduced to 25–30% of my normal capacity for life. It was among the hardest seasons of my life.

Thankfully, I have good news to share! But first, a bit of the back story:
About a year ago, I started inhaling a prescribed antioxidant called Glutathione a couple of times a week. Your body naturally makes Glutathione to flush toxins from your system, but mine seems to make it in smaller amounts. It was supposed to help me feel better–and for the 3–5 hours after I took it, I always did feel much better. It also took away my chronic asthma (which I’ve had since age 4). It seemed to be working!

In May, I started taking it daily, as prescribed. At the same time, my struggle with Multiple Chemical Allergies suddenly escalated, which I attributed to the extra exposure I was getting during our trip to the states. This stayed in an escalated state for almost 6 months. It was brutally hard.

About six weeks ago, one of our prayer supporters sent me an email. She used to have Multiple Chemical Sensitivities. (Isn’t that a hopeful sounding sentence?!!) She pointed me to some research that showed that Glutathione might not be helpful for my specific problems. So, I quit taking Glutathione, and the difference has been incredible. My symptoms have reduced to a pre-summer level. I suddenly have access to 70–80% of my normal capacity, instead of 20–30%. We are rejoicing!

I would have posted sooner, but I wanted to be ‘sure.’ The changes seem to be permanent, so I’m glad to be able to share them here. For those of you who pray for us–thank you! Words cannot express how much your prayers, words of encouragement, and support mean to us. Sometimes, they’re the only things that carry us through. Thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus to us in these days.

We know that the journey isn’t over. Caleb and I still have MCS. We still get ‘toxed.’ We still have many steps to take. I’ll keep you updated on the journey. For now, we’re grateful to be moving ahead with 70–80% of our energy and strength. I hope to be posting here more regularly, as a result.

Happy Thanksgiving!

–Rob
