ENVIRONMENTAL MEDICINE

Our body is correlated to the internal and external conditions it is enveloped by. The internal conditions of health, are a heavily focused and specialized focus of modern medicine: they include gastroenterology, cardiology, dentistry, neurology, etc. As scientists, physicians continue to learn about the role the external conditions play on the human body. Recently, scientists discovered the placneta plays a much more significant role on the fetus than ever previously hypothesized. This is a an example of how the external environment signficiantly agfects the organism it surrounds. 

 

As such, our job as experts in environmental medicine focuses on this infinite interactions between our bodies and the conditions we are exposed to on planet earth, whether air, pollution, heavy metals, pesticides, chemcials, water, etc.

We focus on detailed environmental histories, including potentuail toxic substances from your work, home, food, pharmaceuticals, cleaning products, hobbies, and current/past known exposures. 

We offer a wide variety of treatment options:
