Masks and respirators
P100 Disposable Particulate Cup Respirators provide protection against both solid and liquid aerosol particulates that may contain oil

Cambridge Masks are respirators that use military grade filtration technology to filter out nearly 100% of particulate pollution, gases, as well as bacteria and viruses in a fashion friendly mask suitable for the whole family. Cambridge Mask’s™ inner filtration layer is made from a 100% pure activated carbon cloth, which was originally invented by the UK Ministry of Defence. It was extensively developed and has been made into products for use in chemical, biological and nuclear warfare protection. We call this the British Pollution Solution.

Military Grade N99 – I use this one if I am around sick people and am trying to avoid a virus, bacteria or air pollution outdoors such as pollen and smoke.

Half Face Respirator 3M™ Half Facepiece Reusable Respirator Assembly includes a 3M™ 6000 Series Half Facepiece Reusable Respirator and two 3M™ 2091 P100 Particulate Filters. This assembly is NIOSH approved for environments containing certain oil and non-oil based particles. When properly fitted, this respirator helps provide protection in a variety of applications including welding, brazing, torch cutting, metal pouring, soldering, and exposure to lead asbestos, cadmium, arsenic, and MDA at concentrations up to 10 times the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL).

Detox Ideas
Bare feet on clean ground (no animal waste, to prevent parasites) for “earthing.” (shared by a mom with MCS)
-Active sweating–even if can’t exercise a lot, wear a sweatshirt or something to induce sweating while sweeping the floor or walking or other gentle exercise. Shower after to remove toxins from skin. Be SURE to hydrate with a liquid including a little bit of sugar and salt. (My favorite is plain lemon water.) (shared by a mom with MCS)
-Passive sweating–allow a room to heat up in the sun to promote sweating. Again be sure to hydrate properly. (shared by a mom with MCS)
-Use barrier cloth on your bed and wash often. This will help detox more effectively during sleep. (shared by a mom with MCS)Near Infrared Sauna 5 nights a week for 15 to 25 minutes. Sauna can be made at home or purchased online. Read more about different types of saunas here.
