Hello and thanks for posting your question. I am Dr. Camp and am happy to help you with this issue. There are a number of very good physicians, MD, DO and ND (who have recently been classified alongside MD and DO as physicians by the US Government Department of Labor) who are knowledgeable about and treat people with Multiple Chemical Sensitvities. I am very happy to help you find someone trained in and successful in treating this condition.
Tell me what part of the country you live in and if you have a preference for a particular type of doctor. If you are not sure about what each doctor can offer, here is a brief synopsis:
MD - main tool is often pharmaceutical intervention however, more and more MDs are acquiring training in the use of diet, supplements, homeopathy and other therapies to use along with pharmaceuticals. The pharmaceuticals are used according to allopathic philosophy - manage the symptoms of disease.
DO - in addition to pharmaceutical training, DOs are trained to correct the musculo-skeletal imbalances within the body - the original philosophy was that incorrect form in the body led to symptoms of disease. Many DOs add holistic training that includes diet, supplements, homeopathy, etc.
ND - in addition to pharmaceutical training, NDs like DOs also learn the importance of and how to adjust the musculo-skeletal imbalances. The focus of an NDs training is to identify the root cause of illness and then use the least invasive tool to correct that cause and help restore the body to health. While NDs are trained in the use of pharmacy and have prescription rights in states that currently license NDs, they rarely use pharmaceuticals as they are usually not needed to restore health. Instead they use therapies such as nutrition, herbal medicine, supplements, physical medicine (similar to chiropractic and osteopathic), homeopathy, mind-body medicine, acupuncture, environmental medicine (detox, chemical sensitivities, heavy metal toxicity, etc.).
It is not impossible to find an MD or DO who has gone on to get the training of an ND, but they are few and far between. If you would like an MD or DO with this extra training, I can find you one but you may have to travel to see them....
It is up to you - I can help you locate any one of the three types of doctors - and of course, the most important aspect will be their successful history of dealing with multiple chemical sensitivity!
