Nutritional & Environmental Medicine
The fundamental principle of nutritional and environmental medicine is to provide the body with the building blocks it needs to carry out growth, repair and detoxification of metabolic wastes. Secondly to minimize or eliminates anything hindering this process. In practice this often means making changes to diet, exercise, lifestyle, the use of supplements etc. This all occurs in line with well established protocols, including a low-reactive diet regime, supplemental nutrient support, heavy metal elimination etc.
Injectable Nutrient Therapy
For those suffering from diseases of the gut, and general cellular dysfunction, absorbing nutrients into the blood-stream can be extremely difficult. This is where nutrients given directly via the injectable route can be extremely helpful. For those with severe viral infections and post-viral fatigue, intravenous vitamin C in particular can be dramatically effective.
Management of environmentally acquired illness
Illnesses such as chronic inflammatory response syndrome (CIRS) from exposure to water-damaged buildings (WDB), plus vector-borne infections, mast cell activation syndrome and multiple chemical sensitivity appear to be growing epidemics.
