Environmental Medicine Bootcamp 2017

While the live date of Bootcamp has passed, Recordings (for purchase) will be available soon!

This one-day boot camp is being facilitated by the Naturopathic Academy of Environmental Medicine (NAEM) to teach the basics of this rapidly changing new field and to introduce practitioners to best practices.

Saturday, September 9, 2017 |  8:00am – 6:00pm 

University Place Hotel & Conference Center | 310 SW Lincoln St, Portland, OR 97201



In this Bootcamp you’ll learn:

  • How to properly identify a patient whose illness is environmentally induced: common signs, symptoms, and patterns.
  • How to perform toxic metal testing that is accurate and actionable.
  • Why avoidance is the first rule of Environmental Medicine and the surprising everyday exposures that you may be overlooking. Plus simple steps to help you reduce your patients’ exposures.
  • How and where toxicants are stored in the body and how and when they are released and where they go next.*
  • How your water supply is contributing to your toxic load and what to do about it. 
  • 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)…to reduce the impact of toxic insults to fetal life and early infancy to prevent chronic disease in adulthood.
  • 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 unexplained territory in testing for everyday non-metal toxicant exposure.
