In this Bootcamp you’ll learn:

  • How to properly identify a patient whose illness is environmentally induced.
  • How to perform heavy metal testing that is accurate, actionable, and will stand up in court.
  • Why avoidance is the first rule of Environmental Medicine and the surprising everyday exposures that you may be overlooking.
  • How and where toxicants are stored in the body and how and when they are released and where they go next.*
  • Why you must reconsider your water supply.
  • The surprising new research on sauna therapy.
  • What you must know about NHANES in order to practice knowledgeably.
  • Why and how you can educate people in the reproductive years to reduce the impact of the DOHD (Developmental Origins of Health and Disease).
  • Why an environmental history is foundational to the assessment of your patient’s current and future health.


This Bootcamp is for you if you are:

  • new to Environmental Medicine and wish to incorporate this into your practice.
  • an experienced practitioner who wants an update on the new standards for toxic metal testing.
  • want to avoid the pitfalls in metals testing and the unexplored territory in testing for everyday non-metal toxicant exposures.
