What is Environmental Medicine?
Environmental Medicine is the study of the effects of external physical, chemical, biological, and emotional factors on human beings. We are constantly exposed to numerous sources of environmental toxins on a daily basis. The home we live in, where we live, the food we eat, the cosmetics and hair products we use, and occupational exposure. Sources of environmental toxins include, but are not limited to the following:
- Direct discharge into air, water, and soil
- Environmental catastrophic events
- Inadequate landfills
- Illegal dumping
- Direct Exposure
- Natural Sources
- Household Items
- Landscaping Chemicals
Toxic effects occur at various locations in the body: organ systems, specific organs and cell types, and biochemical processes.
Why Can I do to protect myself from the Adverse Effects of Environmental Toxins?
You can help your body detoxify the toxins you have been exposed to through preparing your body with the tools it needs to prevent future health-related concerns.
Through the process of detoxification, we can significantly enhance health and vitality. The naturopathic physicians at Renū Progressive Medicine will assess your body’s ability to detoxify, complete an entire health history, and customize a detox protocol to fit you.
Dr. Samantha Du Moulin has various methods to help you tune up your body and clear out the junk giving you more energy, better concentration, less pain, and prevention of chronic disease. The prescribed therapies for detoxification might include the following:
- IV Chelation Therapy
- IV Nutrient Therapy
- Customized Nutrition Supplementation
- Glutathione injections, IV treatments and supplements
- Detoxification Support through Weight Loss
- Specialized Testing
- Sauna, Exercise, and other Toxin Elimination Support Therapies.
The physicians at Renū Progressive Medicine are specialty trained in IV chelation therapies and oral chelation therapies. Chelation can be a very safe, and effective route for detoxification. Your practitioner will have to assess if this treatment is an option for your current health concerns.
Lab testing is recommended to determine your “toxic burden”. If you are interested in assessing if you have heavy metal “build-up” in your body, we are trained on specialized testing in heavy metals.
