The Facts of MdDS

  • It is typically triggered by motion: cars, trains, airplanes, ships, boats, and even fast elevators.
  • The average person sees 20+ doctors before getting a diagnosis.
  • Many people are suffering from MdDS and don’t know that they have it. They are undiagnosed.
  • The scale of the problem is not matched by research dollars.

The MdDS phenomenon is the natural result of the human brain adapting to environmental motion and is thus the quintessential neurological disorder.

  • Life Rocks with Rocking Candles

    I’m Kate and I Rock… Literally. In 2018, I developed a neurological disorder Mal de Débarquement. It left me with the constant feeling of rocking and swaying, like I’m on a boat. Basically I never got my land legs back and I live in constant motion. I started making candles and launched Rocking Candles this year to help in some way. The sale of each of my candles, over 700 so far, raises awareness of MdDS and 10% of the proceeds from will go the MdDS Foundation!
