Sensory Hyperreactivity SHR – What is?

Leave a comment

What is SHR?

The term sensory hyperreactivity (SHR) has only been used in the past ten years and involves sensitivity to scents and chemicals with symptoms localized mainly to the eyes and respiratory tract.

SHR is easy to confuse with asthma and allergies which can lead to inaccurate information and medication.

Approximately one-third of the adult population experience some form of discomfort triggered by scents and chemicals.

Approximately six percent of the adult population is estimated to have diagnosed SHR and 70 percent of them are women.

Research shows that the use of scented and fragrance added substances steadily increasing.

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
