Environmental Medicine, or Detoxification
Environmental toxins are on the attack! Fight serious illnesses through advanced clinical detoxification strategies.
Detoxification is one of the cornerstones of health and vitality. And everyone of us has toxins throughout our bodies. If you breathe, drink, and eat, you are carrying a bodily accumulation of injurious chemicals.
Testing of non-occupationally exposed adults for environmental toxins revealed an average of 91 compounds each, including the following chemicals:
- 76 linked to cancer in humans or
- 94 toxic to the brain and nervous system
- 86 that interfere with the hormone system
- 79 associated with birth defects or abnormal development
- 77 toxic to the reproduction system
- 77 toxic to the immune system
The average baby born in the United States today has an astounding 200 toxic chemicals in its cord blood at birth.
Environmental medicine fits well with the naturopathic paradigm, where the underlying causes of illness are addressed. In particular, toxicity and detoxification defects are associated with caner fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, multiple chemical sensitivity, and autoimmune disease. Dr. Fine specializes in identifying the common sources of environmental chemicals that are making you ill. Using a genomic panel that identifies genetic SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms, or places in your genes that differ from the norm) in your body's detoxification system, along with a thorough medical history and chemical exposure questionnnaire, Dr. Fine will design a personalized detoxification program that gets at the root of your health concerns. This approach has changed the shape of practice for Dr. Fine's most challenging cases -- she calls it "transformational medicine" for the powerful effect it has on the total health of patients.
