Across Canada, the publicly insured method of diagnosing sensitivities is the patient interview, as an environmental history and possibly in conjunction with a patient journal. The interview covers many of the same areas as described in Hippocrates, "On Airs, Waters and Places."
In the late 1980's, Conservative, Liberal and NDP MP's worked with Health and Welfare to bring environmental sensitivities out from being eclipsed by clinical ecology and the MCS model, immunology and the allergy model, psychiatry and the PTSD/eating-disorder model, the pharmaceuticals are dangerous model, and so on.
10 May 2007 - As predicted, the Canadian Human Rights Commission's report repeats mistakes and deceits about environmental sensitivities that contribute to the unnecessary killing of undiagnosed patients in health care settings.
10 August 2007 - While in opposition, John Manley, MP, helped to forward concerns about preventable harm being caused to persons with environmental sensitivities. Once he was in government, the fact kids were being abused in schools and injured or killed while receiving health care didn't faze him. His government had reversed the position he'd fought for.

Their deceit will temporarily exonerate the RCMP and Justice officials for ignoring a criminal cover-up under the Liberals that has contributed to thousands of Canadian deaths.
In 1990, as Health and Welfare Canada began addressing attitudes about sensitivities in the federal realm, Dr. Bruce Halliday, MP, invited testimony before the Parliamentary human rights committee. The minutes are attached.
