Often, our most chronic and difficult to diagnose symptoms have their roots in environmental stressors. Migraines and headaches, allergies, fatigue, skin rashes and outbreaks, chronic infections, and even infertility issues can stem from toxins in our environment.
Eliminating negative stressors and supplementing deficiencies is a critical health factor. Using a variety of therapies, we tailor a treatment plan specifically targeting the challenges of your environment. These natural interventions can include:
According to the Environmental Protection Agency and the Natural Resources Defense Council, around 85,000 chemicals are available in the US. Not all of these chemicals have been tested for their effects on our health, and there is no way to control for all of their interactions in our environment. Many health challenges can be caused or worsened by an overload of chemical toxins stored in the body.
We use a variety of natural therapies to diminish the burden of toxins, replenish the key nutrients that the body uses to detoxify itself naturally, and strengthen the immune system holistically.
Latent infections are hidden infections that add background stress to the body. Chronic low-grade infections take their toll on our health, exacerbating disease and preventing healthy function. In addition, certain environmental triggers can cause these latent infections to flare up in full swing again, leading to chronic viral infection issues that are difficult to treat by conventional means.
During your consultation, we will take full stock of your health situation, including environmental factors that may contribute to latent infections. Then, we determine the best approach to care with individualized treatments and support to combat these stressors.
Mold illnesses are highly common but rarely diagnosed, poisoning your body over time. Exposure to mold can have many negative health effects, including chronic fatigue, headaches, breathing issues, digestive disorders, hormonal imbalances, and even neurological problems like brain fog and depression. At Pure Body Health, we can evaluate you for mold exposures and provide natural treatments to help your body withstand these and other environmental toxins.
Other Environmental STRESSORS
There are numerous other stressors present in our environment, such as heavy metals, pollutants in air and water, electromagnetic fields (EMF), and radiofrequency fields, just to name a few. Not all of these stressors are avoidable since they are a part of our environment, but we can help reduce and manage these stressors to improve your overall health. Our goal is to create resiliency in your body and provide education on ways to reduce your overall toxic burden.
FREQUENTLY Asked Questions
During your initial consultation, we take a detailed, in-depth assessment of your health, including your medical history and your daily activities. We take your home environment, workplace environment, health habits, lifestyle, and hobbies into consideration, as well as your symptoms and health goals. We also provide specialty testing to look for issues related to gut health, allergies, food sensitivities, immune strength, mold exposure, and more.
The more chemicals and toxins you are exposed to in your daily life, the more likely you are to experience environmental illness. Air pollution is one major contributor, both in your geographical location and your home. Poorly insulated, highly humid, or damp environments can exacerbate these problems whether at work or at home. Our thorough intake is designed to identify potential problem areas and manage exposures.
Conventional approaches treat only the symptoms of disease. Naturopathic environmental medicine is concerned with the whole person, not just their symptoms, and promotes overall health to combat the effects of negative environmental stressors. Because chronic exposure to toxins can have wide-ranging mental, physical, and emotional effects, we provide holistic support to help your body overcome these challenges.
