High levels of toxins in the human body can be linked to common conditions such as infertility, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes. With therapeutic guidance designed for clinicians, Clinical Environmental Medicine focuses on how toxins such as arsenic, lead, mercury and organophosphates have become the leading causes of chronic disease in the industrial world. The first edition of this text describes how to treat these undesirable elements and molecules that can poison enzyme systems, damage DNA, increase inflammation and oxidative stress, and damage cell membranes. Expert authors Walter Crinnion and Joseph E. Pizzorno offer practical guidance for assessing both total body load as well as specific toxins. In addition, evidence-based treatment procedures provide recommendations for decreasing toxin exposure and supporting the body’s biotransformation and excretion processes.

    • NEW! Unique! Practical diagnostic and therapeutic guidance designed for clinicians.
    • NEW! Unique! Coverage of the most common diseases for which toxins are a primary cause.
    • NEW! Description of how each toxin causes damage provides insights into sources, body load, and interventions for each toxin.
    • NEW! Unique! Entirely evidence-based content focuses on the most common conditions from which patients suffer.
    • NEW! Unique! Coverage of environmental toxicants, endogenous toxicants, and "toxins of choice" focuses on non-industrially-exposed populations.
