With toxins from the environment now becoming a—if not the—primary cause of chronic disease, clinicians committed to treating causes rather than symptom need to become proficient in environmental medicine. This presentation provides guidance and tools for recognizing when patients are suffering from a high toxic load, the key laboratory tests to assess toxic load, the best ways to determine which specific toxins are most likely the cause, determine the sources of the worst toxins, basic detoxification protocols and best ways to objectively monitor efficacy of intervention. Finally, a specific toxin recognition and elimination strategy will be presented for: dementia, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis and thyroid disorders.
