Environmental Medicine is a branch of medicine whose domain is not limited by anatomical boundaries but, rather, is concerned with the whole person and the way that a person reacts to his/her total environment.

The approach of Environmental Medicine is holistic in nature and addresses every part of the body, including the brain that controls thinking, perception, mood, and behavior.  Chronic exposure to various stressors can trigger a wide range of mental, physical, and emotional disorders. Stressors may include infection, allergies and intolerances, addiction, nutritional
deficiencies, exposure to toxic chemicals and toxic metals, or toxic relationships.  Stressors may be linked to the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, the chemicals that pollute them, or more subtle sources.  Over time, if stressors outweigh the body’s ability to cope with them, imbalance and illness result.

The Center evaluates each patient in terms of his/her total environment and the impact of that environment on the individual biochemistry.  We strive to reduce the Total Body Stress Load and rebuild the body’s reserves, restoring balance and strengthening the individual to overcome and prevent illness.
