Lotus Holistic Medicine - Environmental 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 (MCAS) and multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) appear to be growing epidemics. These can be categorised as environmentally acquired illnesses (EAI).

Our doctors are members of international organisations such as the International Society for Environmentally Acquired Illness (ISEAI) and the Australian Chronic Infectious and Inflammatory Disease Society (ACIIDS) which work together to progress effective and evidence-based approaches to these illnesses.

Some of the approaches to manage these illnesses include:

  1. Environmental testing and remediation.
  2. Use of binders such as cholestyramine.
  3. Restoring the nasal microbiome. This may include treating MARCoNS (multiple antibiotic resistant coagulase negative staphylococci), biofilm bacteria that colonise in the deep nasal passages, creating toxins and reducing alpha-Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone.
  4. Specific steps to manage inflammation and hormonal dysregulation.
  5. Enhancement of detoxification and glutathione promotion.
  6. Psychospiritual release.
