Multiple Sensitivity to Pollution , ClausPeter Kessler Dr

It is not Multiple Sensitivity to Pollution, it is not Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, it is Multiple Chemical Element Sensitivity !!!

You have to understand the difference between sensitivity and toxicity. For example: If you are sensitive to mercury (most common), your body reacts to the exposure of each single molecule of mercury from inhalation, ingestion or transdermally and disturbs the order of your system, especially to the predisposed weak spots of your system (skin, immune system, joint fluid, etc.). If you are not disturbed by this vibration (or frequency) of mercury by exposure, your body is able to take care of all other toxins (Arsenic, Aluminum, Meds, Alcohol, Pesticides, etc., not in a toxicological doses), you are getting exposed to and is able to use compensatory pathways to make up weaknesses (genetic) of your body.

If the order of the system is disturbed, your body is not able to do this and will even react uncontrolled , irrational, dysautonomic ( see my Note: Dysautonomia)

Other patients are sensitive to Aluminum, Fluoride, Palladium, Iridium, Indium, Gold, Titan, Silicium, Formaldehyde and react to the vibration of this particular element and not to mercury. The word ‘chemical sensitivity’ should be individually narrowed down to the one or seldom two chemical elements.

The patient is sensitive to a product (fragrance, food, cosmetics, etc.), because it contains in trace amounts the chemical element, he or she is sensitive to, and this can vary from charge to charge of each product.

Calling it a sensitivity to fragrances turns sensitives into Pavlov dogs in being trained to react to anything they smell.

Discrimination within PAS , ChildAbuse


Ability to distinguish between stimuli or objects that are different from one another. 2. Ability to respond in different ways. 3. Treating people from different cultures differently.  Psychology Dictionary:

Parental alienation syndrome

Parental alienation syndrome (abbreviated as PAS) is a term coined by Richard A. Gardner in the early 1980s to refer to what he describes as a disorder in which a child, on an ongoing basis, belittles and insults one parent without justification, due to a combination of factors, including indoctrination by the other parent (almost exclusively as part of a child custody dispute) and the child’s own attempts to denigrate the target parent.

Jimmy Carter on Women and Discrimination
This discrimination, unjustifiably attributed to a Higher Authority, has provided a reason or excuse for the deprivation of women’s equal rights across the world for centuries.

At its most repugnant, the belief that women must be subjugated to the wishes of men excuses slavery, violence, forced prostitution, genital mutilation and national laws that omit rape as a crime. But it also costs many millions of girls and women control over their own bodies and lives, and continues to deny them fair access to education, health, employment and influence within their own communities.

The same discriminatory thinking lies behind the continuing gender gap in pay and why there are still so few women in office in the West. The root of this prejudice lies deep in our histories, but its impact is felt every day. It is not women and girls alone who suffer. It damages all of us.

Carter states how the subjugation of women was not always a part of Christianity.

“The carefully selected verses found in the Holy Scriptures to justify the superiority of men owe more to time and place – and the determination of male leaders to hold onto their influence – than eternal truths

I am also familiar with vivid descriptions in the same Scriptures in which women are revered as pre-eminent leaders. During the years of the early Christian church women served as deacons, priests, bishops, apostles, teachers and prophets. It wasn’t until the fourth century that dominant Christian leaders, all men, twisted and distorted Holy Scriptures to perpetuate their ascendant positions within the religious hierarchy.”

Many truths in the following :

The campaign of denigration is an example of the construction of family myths which are

used for the purpose of turning a child against a previously loved and loving parent.

The child is programmed to believe that her/his other parent is: worthless, selfish,

unloving, malevolent, undeserving, and dangerous, etc. The effective result is that the

children become convinced they will be happier, healthier, and better adjusted if their

targeted parent is eradicated from their lives.

Examples of the denigrating behavior are listed below and are not inclusive:

1) Sabotaging and interfering with visits or not permitting visits at all.

2) Depriving the targeted parent of important information about the child, including but

not limited to medical, educational, and social activities.

3) Not informing and excluding the targeted parent from the child’s activities, parent/

teacher conferences, birthdays, religious events, graduations, etc.

4) Programming the child against the targeted parent by belittling, criticizing, and

deprecating the targeted parent in the child’s presence.

5) Removing the targeted pictures of the targeted parent from the child’s awareness.

6) Interference with and not being supportive of contact between the targeted parent and

the child. This contact includes the telephone, text messaging, e-mailing, skype, or other


7) Making unilateral decisions in major areas regarding the child.

8) Verbally and physically abusing the targeted parent by the child and/or alienating


9) Defying the targeted parent’s supervision and authority.

10) Rejection of the targeted parent’s gifts, cards, vacations, and other offers of help


The symptom called “reflexive support the alienating parent” is descriptive of the

process by which PAS children uncritically and dogmatically align with their alienating

parent, particularly when disagreements and hostilities arise between the parents. family

systems therapists labeled this coalition the “perverse triangle” whereby the child is

manipulated by one parent into forming a coalition to the disengagement of the other

parent. This interactional pattern acquired such a label because it is a dysfunctional

behavioral pattern: when a parent and child to collude (either consciously or

unconsciously) to deprecate and reject the other parent, the child often develops severe

emotional disturbances. The requirement of the coalition is a destructive demand for the

child to choose between parents: it creates a double bind in that the child must either

sever a relationship with the targeted parent or else incur the wrath and probable rejection

of the alienating parent for refusal to do so. In the face of parental disputes, PAS children

express unequivocal support for and allegiance to the feelings, opinions, and behaviors of

their alienating parent and absolute disregard for those of their alienated parent. They

assert that their alienating parent possesses a veracity above reproach in every dispute

while the alienated parent is always guilty of mendacity. Indeed, the enmeshment with

the alienator is so powerful, that these children will interpret their alienated parent’s

struggle to defend against the alienating parent’s humiliating behaviors and malicious

accusations to be an attack upon them.

PAS children, for example, uncritically align with the alienating parent even after that

parent’s allegations of domestic violence are dismissed, and even when having failed to

witness a single such incident. Whether it be issues such as child support, financial

disputes, infidelity accusations, fallacious child abuse allegations, or any matter arising in

the divorce proceedings, the PAS child will align with the alienating parent.


PAS children can be predicted to recite a long list of deficits about their targeted parent

while minimizing or refuting any positive attribute or redeeming quality of that parent.

PAS children are curiously stricken with “amnesia” when it comes to acknowledging and

appreciating their targeted parent’s lifetime involvement with them. Targeted parents

receive no recognition for the time, energy, and emotional and financial support which

they had invested and continue to invest in their children. Instead, everything targeted

parents utter, accomplish, propose, and offer to their children is viewed with disdain and

negativity. The inventory of characteristics is just the reverse for the alienating parent,

who is idealized, appears to possess a halo, is perceived as capable of walking on water,

and reveals no character flaws whatsoever. PAS children have relinquished any interest

in engaging in an objective assessment of each of their parents. On the one hand, they

consider their targeted parent to be unadulterated evil. On the other hand, they

demonstrate an unshakable reverence for their alienating parent, even when an objective

observer would evaluate the alienator to possess insufferable, problematical, and even

reprehensible attributes. These children think only in terms of black and white when it

comes to their two parents.


This symptom no better reflects the distortion of family events or “the enshrining of

revisionist history” by the alienating parent and the PAS child about the targeted parent in

order to portray that parent in the worst possible light. PAS children remain armed with a

laundry list of vague injustices, deceptions, and disappointments which were allegedly

inflicted upon them by their targeted parent. These children exploit the opportunity to

reiterate their complaints ad nauseam when they respond with their inventory of

grievances to nearly every question asked of them about their relationship with their

targeted parent. When they are requested, however, to provide specific incidences or

explicit examples which support their accusations, they are unable to document credible,

significant, or factual examples. To the contrary, these children utter nothing more

explicit than vague comments such as “she/he lies;” “she/he is embarrassing,” “she/he is

annoying,” etc. Sometimes these children will say, “She/he is abusive,” but they will be

unable to cite specific incidences to support the claims. These children, nevertheless,

have the potential to create havoc for their targeted parent when they fabricate fantastic,

ludicrous, and exaggerated accusations to justify their deprecation, such as child abuse

allegations. What these children can specifically articulate is the nastiness of their

alienating parent as well as that parent’s corroboration of their misperceptions of the

targeted parent. The PAS thus catapults to life because of the repetitive exploitation of

deceit, untruths, and hyperbole.

If the children and alienating parent are vague about alleged injustices committed by the

targeted parent, they are very specific about allegations of child abuse and domestic

violence. But these allegations are either entirely manufactured for utterly distorted and



PAS children proclaim uninfluenced ownership of their “horrific” opinions of and

feelings for their targeted parent. Moreover, they accept sole responsibility for their

abusive, disrespectful and rejecting behaviors towards that parent, adamantly affirming

that their alienating parent does not encourage them in the slightest. Imagine, a child

accepting absolute culpability for their reprehensible deeds! And they will spontaneously

volunteer authorship of these ideas, frequently volunteering that their alienating parent

has not influenced their feelings and behaviors one iota.

CRUELTY towards the ALIENATED PARENT with no remorse or guilt

PAS children typically exhibit toward their targeted parent a cruelty so wounding that the

serpent’s bite pales in comparison. Pouring salt in their parent’s wounds, these children

reveal no remorse or guilt for having caused such pain.


That is, the vilification and rejection of the targeted parent usually will extend to her/his

entire family of origin. These relatives, such as grandparents, who had had a previously

loving relationship with the child, will now be inexplicably rejected. The PAS child

utters no remorse regarding such rejection and expresses no feelings of loss for the

termination of these relationships. When these relatives attempt contact with the child,

their efforts go unanswered, and all requests for visits are refused.
