The environment we live in today completely overwhelms us in the massive amount of toxic substances and energy fields we are being exposed to on a daily basis. Autoimmune and inflammatory diseases have escalated dramatically over the past 50 years. The environmental toxins can influence the cardiovascular system, chronic pediatric disorders, the endocrine system, eyes, ears and throat, the GI system, genitourinary systems, along with musculoskeletal, nervous, psychiatric, skin and respiratory systems. Sensitivities, allergic reactions, and poisoning may occur that can dramatically influence disease processes and the breakdown of the body. The practice of Environmental Medicine addresses the effects of such exposures and helps people detoxify from them. Special training is needed to understand the complexity and cause of the problems encountered, the types of diagnostic tests, and the various safe and effective treatments as well as preventive measures.
