Full Description:

Lisa Nagy, MD was recently interviewed for Nightline because her story is quite incredible, horrific and has a happy ending. She and her husband Wes lived in a home in California which caused she, the dog and Wes to become adrenally insufficient among many other problems that they developed. It was a toxic exposure that led to this, thyroid insufficiency in all of them (both dogs) and muscle weakness in Dr. Nagy and the dogs. One dog developed Myasthenia Gravis and Wes developed Pemphigus Foliaceus both autoimmune diseases possibly induced by this exposure. It is from this personal experience that Dr. Nagy, who was trained in Emergency Medicine, has learned about Chemical Sensitivity and Environmental Medicine and hopes to educate the country about the condition that almost killed her and plagues, to some degree, at least 40% of the population.
