Holistic health begins with contemplative appreciation of the interconnectedness of biosystems, including both biopsychosocial and environmental integrity. Endocrine-disrupting chemicals are the hidden culprits underlying some forms of illness, including some types of hormonal imbalance and some neurological and psychiatric symptoms. Environmental pollutants have been regarded as a probable cause of premature ovarian insufficiency. Phenolic synthetic estrogens from increasingly ubiquitous environmental pollutants and cosmetics have been linked with earlier menopausal onset and common gynecological pathologies, such as uterine fibroids, infertility and polycystic ovarian syndrome.
We test for glyphosate exposure, organophosphate pesticides, organochlorine pesticides, mycotoxins, phthalate metabolites, trichothecenes, parabens, acrylic metabolites, alkyl phenols including bisphenol A (BPA) and triclosan and volatile organic compounds. Of greater importance, treatment is oriented around mitigation and biological clearance of these lipophilic agents.
We teach you how to green your body, home and lifestyle to avoid these exposures, and prescribe medications to assist in elimination of these toxins and biotoxins.
We teach you which 'foods as medicine' and create a lifestyle of increased protection against these chemical threats to human health.
