Learn more during a consultation with our team at Optimal Health and Wellness in Pasadena, CA led by Dr. Clement Lee.
What Is Environmental Medicine?
Environmental medicine is a branch of medicine to evaluate and monitor levels of potential harmful factors in the bloodstream. Multiple natural lifestyle events may cause exposure to things like:
- Chemical toxins
These factors may affect the body and manifest themselves in different ways, such as:
- Abdominal pain
- Behavioral changes
- Bone weakness
- Memory loss or brain fog
- Nerve damage or complications
Each person experiences these toxins differently, but if you are concerned about the potential harm they may be doing to your body, we recommend a consultation with our team in Pasadena. Environmental medicine testing may help you better understand what is happening to your body as well as determine a path to wellness.
What Could I Expect from Testing?
The process of testing your body for levels of toxins or harmful factors is relatively simple. Common forms of testing include a blood test or a urine sample. One test may be able to effectively identify the levels of multiple things within your blood, but individual tests may need to be performed.
It is important to remember that your body does require some levels of some toxins for healthy functioning. However, elevated levels require further medical care and attention.
Why Is Environmental Medicine Important?
To live a healthy lifestyle, it is important to fully understand everything about yourself and health. Measuring the levels of specific toxins or other factors in your body can help address other concerns, such as:
- Autoimmune diseases
- Chronic conditions
- Memory issues
If necessary, our team may recommend a detox program. The specifics of the program will depend on your unique experiences, but it is important to remove harmful items from your life. Results achieved with detox programs will vary for each person and their experiences.
