"Modern medicine recognizes that the mind and body are intimately interconnected in the “biopsychosocial model” for health care. However, controversy continues regarding the physical or psychological roots of environmental sensitivities, with ramifications for both health care and workplace accommodation. Research indicates that sensitivities generally have physical causes, with many neurological and psycho-social factors interwoven. Successfully addressing physical symptoms with safe housing, workplaces, food and water may also alleviate psychological symptoms. This is necessary before other psychosocial interventions may be helpful." Excerpt from "The Medical Perspective on Environmental Sensitivities", By: Margaret E. Sears, M. Eng., Ph.D., for The Canadian Human Rights Commission, May 2007
RBc: One more time..."Modern medicine recognizes that the mind and body are intimately interconnected in the “biopsychosocial model” for health care."
