My job as a dental technician damaged my immune system

At the age of 17 I started my apprenticeship as a dental technician. Much of my work over the next 7yrs involoved the use of petrochemical products mainly monomers and polymers the basics ingredients used to make plastics in order to manufacture dentures.
I began to have adverse effects from the start, including weight gain, acne, and tiredness.
I left my profession when I had my first child at 25 but by then, I believe, most of the damage had been done. I saw my doctor many times complaining of excess tiredness and muscular weakness, though i do remember feeling better whilst pregnant possibly due to the higher levels of progesterone.
By the time I was 30 I could no longer tolerate any chemically based cleaning products even scented perfumes and soaps made me feel ill.
At 40 I became very unwell unable to feel my feet and eventually my whole body up to my neck felt as if it was numb. I was diagnosed with MS after a MRI scan.
My research eventually lead me to progesterone cream which helped with my healing. I am now 50 and entering menopause and have not been feeling well so have resumed the use of progesterone cream.
I found this site after deciding to do more research and now use the Natpro cream and have gained a much better understanding of how to use the cream effectively, so thankyou very very much I sincerely hope that research will eventually lead to a greater aknowledgment, especially amongst the medical fraternity, of how natural progesterone can make a difference to people with auto immune disease as well as endocrine imbalances.
