Most chronic diseases are directly correlated to our environment. The environment encompasses everything from: the air we breathe; to the food that we eat; to the water that we drink; to the products we put on our skin; to the surrounding electrical frequencies; to the thoughts we place in our mind. It may seem like a feat in trying to create a healthy living environment. However, like any lifestyle change, it just takes putting one foot in front of the other, one day at a time.
Our doctors see these environmental aspects as obstacles to heal in many patients with chronic disease processes. Sometimes it can be as simple as installing a HEPA filter in the bedroom for allergies, to more complex therapies such as IV nutrients and oral chelation to help the liver rid the body of an overabundance of toxins. At Verde Valley Naturopathic Medicine, we see the whole person and their environment, while trying to leave no stone unturned.
Our mentors in environmental medicine are the late Dr. Walter Crinnion, Dr. Paul Anderson, Dr. Jessica Tran, and Dr. Marianne Marchese. These Physicians are experts in Environmental Medicine and have authored books on the subject, which she highly recommends to most of her patients. They have been inspirations in her quest for healing patients and finding the root cause of disease processes.
The doctors use the following cutting edge labs to see if environmental toxicity is correlated with their health concerns:
Heavy Metals / Urine Toxic Metals Profile
Myco-Tox Profile (mold profile)
Chlorinated Pesticide Profile
Nutrigenomic / Genetic Health Mutations: Detoxification, Neurotransmitters, Cardiovascular, Endocrine, Vitamin Synthesis
Red Blood Cell Nutrient Evaluation / Micronutrient Testing
Phthalate & Paraben Profile
Food Sensitivity Profile
Comprehensive Stool Analysis with Parasitology
Stool DNA Testing
SIBO and H. Pylori
Many of our patients have multiple chemical sensitivities, therefore our office is a fragrance-free environment.
