Available with Dr. Marillea Yu.
I have recently completed my studies in Environmental Medicine. Furthering my knowledge in this direction now allows me to better assess and manage conditions that may be caused by environmental toxicity.
An Environmental Medicine approach consists of assessing toxic body burden, which includes not only exposure to various harmful chemicals and elements in our environment such as heavy metals, persistent pesticides, endocrine disruptors, mold, etc. but also looking at the body’s ability to detoxify and eliminate chemicals it has been exposed to.
Indicators are: health conditions like chronic pain, muscle weakness, autoimmune disease, mental fogginess and moodiness, low immune function. Other indications that you may be affected by environmental burden and the inability to properly detoxify include sensitivity to caffeine (i.e. insomnia if having coffee past noon), sensitivity to pharmaceutical medications, noticeable physical or mental reaction upon exposure to airborne chemicals. Another strong indicator of environmental illness is a health condition that occurs after chemical exposure (i.e. occupational, hobby or residential)
An environmental health assessment involves thorough investigation of exposures and timelines as well as specific lab testing in order to identify, manage and treat environmental toxic burden.
