The title of this episode is "MCS is Not an Anxiety Disorder."  It features a conversation with Dr. Eleanor Stein.

Dr. Stein  is a a psychiatrist and psychotherapist with an appointment in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Calgary in the Faculty of Medicine.

For over 20 years, she has been intensively learning about diagnosis and management of Environmental Sensitivities or MCS, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), and Fibromyalgia (FM).

Dr. Stein’s goal is that everyone with these conditions receive effective and respectful treatment within the public health care system.

She is one of a small number of experienced clinicians for these illnesses in Canada and is involved with two research teams providing clinical expertise.

Her manual “Let Your Light Shine Through: Strategies for living with ME/CFS, FM and MCS”  guides patients and clinicians through managing the symptoms of these conditions. Dr. Stein also offers self-management education online through the Pathways to Improvement course.
