Now I've always had health problems with allergies and a weakened immune system. However my health significantly worsened with adrenal fatigue, panic attacks, hair loss, heart pain, difficult breathing etc close to 2 years ago. At the time I herniated a disc in my neck and refused the pain killers pushed at me by doctors, so I just assumed this was the cause of all the health problems I'm still dealing with today.
I've always had some problems with the air quality of my room, never as bad as they've been in the past couple years. In the past couple months I've had to move out of my room entirely and sleep in another room of my house as after spending just a few minutes in my room triggers dizziness/breathing problems/sinus congestion.
I've been really stuck trying to figure out what the cause is because I removed all the carpeting, I'll air out the room constantly, dust, vacuum, have both an IQ air purifier and Sharp plasma cluster running, as well as using Ozone to destroy any mold and yet the problem persists!
Then it just struck me today! Around the time my health had begun this decline before my neck injury even, I had purchased all new furniture for my room, ALL from IKEA!
I bought a new desk, new book case and new dresser/drawer. Ironically enough I had bought new furniture thinking the furniture I had was old and potentially had mold growth so it would be in my best interests... apparently not it seems.
With just a few minutes of research there seems to be tons of information regarding IKEA furniture products having issues with formaldehyde! Particleboard causing allergic responses as well which makes up at least 2 pieces of furniture in my room.
So I've just ordered a formaldehyde test kit online and I'm very interested in what results it will tell.
As all the things I do help my health to a point but the instant I go back into that room I feel like I'm back to square 1! It's truly unbelievable. I mean I literally got myself to the point where after a few weeks of cleansing, juicing and using a nettie pot where my sinuses were cleared out entirely, I could breathe perfectly fine. As a result I wanted to test how badly my room was affecting me, so I went in and 2 hours later I was experiencing dizziness, shortness of breathe and my nose and ears were plugged up completely!
I've been doing castor oil packs, juicing with my Brevelle going to buy a better juicer (Omega 8005), continuing with Liver Flushing and gone through many days of just juice, super foods with fiber and lots of raw garlic. Looking to start coffee enemas with doing some water enemas first to get the hang of it. So I know I'm on the right path but this toxic room issue is just unbelievable, and the more I think about it even as I write this it all makes sense.
My gut has been telling me for ages that my room was making me sick but I just didn't know what it was. Should have know something when I started waking up in the middle of the night out of breath!
I asked for a message or the information from a higher source to know exactly what in my room was causing this problem, it's funny because when I ask focused questions with a strong intent of knowing I always seem to get the answers so quick!
If you're still reading, great! I'm wondering if anyone has experience with furniture making them sick or knowledge of particleboard and formaldehyde emissions causing severe health problems?
