DNA testing

One way is to have it done by 23andme for $199 (Nov 2016) at http://www.23andme.com. It is suggested you use a fake name and date of birth due to eugenics. Many Naturopathic Doctors are now studying this, so check with a local ND if you want. It helped me greatly.

Dr. Karen Threkel ND in Washington DC 202-244-6661 does this analysis over the phone. You’ll have to see if your insurance will cover any of the appointment. There’s a $250 90 minute intake appointment and then another appointment about the DNA results.

Environmental Medicine Practices

(Please note most of them will help you diagnosis the problem and give information on treatments they suggest. If you already know you have MCS and have found treatments that are helping, please do not obsess about getting an environmental medicine expert consultation. Few with MCS ever do and are living at the same level of quality of life as if they had. The main reason? The ONLY known treatmeant for everyone is safe housing. That is your primary health need. With that your health issues ought to be easier to manage on your own or with an open minded ND, DO or MD with an interest in learning about MCS.)
