When I started my practice as a primary care physician, I was seeing many patients with inexplicable fatigue, difficulty losing weight, irritable bowel syndrome, thyroid problems, anxiety and depression.

Many of them had suffered with symptoms for years. Instead of only treating symptoms with more medications, I got curious. I wanted to figure out and address the root causes of my patients’ symptoms so they can live their healthiest, best life. I wanted to empower my patients and give them the tools for supporting their bodies and minds. I pursued an integrative medicine fellowship that was started by Dr. Andrew Weil, a pioneer of integrative medicine.

I also started functional medicine training, mindfulness-based stress reduction, and Ayurveda. This additional training transformed my practice and added a set of valuable tools that would later help many of my patients.

As I started to help my patients optimize their nutrition, reduce environmental toxin exposure, improve sleep, and master stress, they started to get better. I was able to help patients get off of medications for anxiety, have more energy, improve or eliminate irritable bowel symptoms, lose weight and reduce their high blood sugars and high blood pressure. I now apply evidence-based modalities in internal and integrative medicine, through a root-cause lens, to help my patients live at their highest level of health.

Today I’d like to discuss reducing our toxic burden to support a higher level of health. Did you know that publications from national surveys (National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey) report a total of 265 environmental chemicals found in human blood and urine samples collected?
