In many individuals, cleansing or chelation are required to lower the toxic load of bioaccumulated environmental chemicals. Over 87,000 synthetic chemicals have been developed since World War II. It is not know if the human body can effectively remove these chemicals from the body. There is a wealth of research associating environmental pollutants with many disease processes. All Americans are exposed to synthetic chemicals in their daily lives. Synthetic chemicals are found in the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, the material our home are built with, the clothes we wear, and the products we use in hygiene.
Currently the Tigard Holistic Health Clinic uses several laboratory tests to help identify and detect levels of synthetic chemicals and heavy metals in the body. In addition some tests can determine damage or malfunctioning of normal processes form chemical exposure. Cleansing programs are utilized to remove as much of the toxins as possible see cleansing side bar. Specific treatment programs are developed to restore optimal function and enhance well being. Awareness of where toxins and pollutions are found in our daily environment are taught in an effort towards prevention. Sound nutritional advice is given so our patients are aware of both how to avoid the common toxins in foods as well as how foods can be utilized as healing agents.
