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.
Research suggests that this exposure begins very early in life. Once thought to be protected by the placental barrier, even infants have shown signs of in-utero toxic exposure. In fact, a 2005 Environmental Working Group (EWG) investigation found over 200 toxic compounds (in aggregate) in the cord blood of 10 newborns.
With such a variety of toxic-chemical exposures, identifying how to evaluate whether a patient's symptoms might be related to environmental toxin could be challenging. The Toxic Effects CORE (Chemical Occurrence & Related Exposure) profile is designed to easily suppost this investigation in clinical practice. A comprehensive and cost-effective tool, Toxic Effects CORE narrows down the areas of toxic burden that could be related to chronic, intractable symptoms in your patients.
ACTIONABLE RESULTS: Test results provide insight into patient exposure and support the development of treatment protocols to manage body burden, and lifestyle changes, to avoid ongoing exposure.
QUANTIFIABLE ANALYSIS: Toxic Effects CORE measures levels of a patient’s exposure in comparison to population levels.
CLINICAL SOLUTIONS: Reader-friendly reports, a detailed interpretive guide, and supplementary support from our Medical Educators each help reduce complexity.
