.

Toxic body burden is the lifelong accumulation of chemicals to which we are exposed through our food, air, and environment. This accumulation is not without consequences, and chronic health conditions like autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases, as well as cancer and even diabetes, have been associated with ongoing exposure to environmental toxins.

The Toxic Effects CORE profile was developed as a useful clinical tool in detecting toxic burden that can enter the body and affect a variety of health conditions. Long term exposure even from a young age can be life threating and significantly impact the body’s physiological systems. Pervasive chemical compounds have been found to disrupt the immune, nervous, and endocrine systems. As more toxicants are used in products that increase the “convenience factor” of our busy lives, there continues to be increases in infertility, certain cancers, developmental delays, asthma, chemical sensitivities, and hormonal imbalances. Environmental toxicants have been implicated in causing and exacerbating many of these conditions.

Common Conditions:

• Infertility
• Depression
• Fatigue
• Allergies
• Respiratory system issues
• Impaired Immune function
• Cancer
• Nervous system impairment
• Endocrine system impairment
• Liver Toxicity
