Reverend Wright’s Be in Health Program
A Christian program being used by some with chemical sensitivity and other conditions with success, based on the belief that many diseases are the result of separation between God, yourself and others. The program helps you identify and resolve spiritual roots of disease. Some of the issues they help you deal with are fear, stress, guilt, self-hatred and rejection. They claim that these feelings negatively impact the body, soul and spirit, thus causing disease. It has been theorized by some in the brain retraining community familiar with the program that although spiritual in nature, the Be In Health approach may work through similar mechanisms – by calming the amygdala and retraining the brain to function via healthier neuronal pathways. For this reason, we include this program here, as a more spiritual approach may resonate for some people and we have heard many anecdotal testimonies of recovery from chemical sensitivity through this program.

ADJUNCT THERAPIES
Modalities that people with environmentally based illnesses like chemical sensitivity, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia are using in conjunction with brain retraining programs to assist with their healing:

Buteyko Breathing Method
A natural approach to healing respiratory and other ailments based on the premise that many people in the western world breathe too much (chronic hyperventilation) due to our modern lifestyles. Typical characteristics of an over-breather include mouth breathing, regular sighing, large breaths prior to talking, breathing loud during rest, etc. Overbreathing creates disturbances in the ratio of oxygen to carbon dioxide and other gases that are distributed to organs and tissues in the body, and can cause a variety of health symptoms including asthma, fatigue, anxiety, and depression. The Buteyko breathing exercises focus on reducing breath volume over time. Some people with chemical sensitivity are sharing that these breathing exercises have helped them with sleep problems, fatigue, food intolerances, chemical sensitivity, OCD thought patterns, and an overall calming of brain activity. You can purchase a variety of mp3 downloads, DVDs, CDs, and/or books from the below links or work with a private coach to learn the process.
