Environmental Medicine


Environmental illnesses are escalating because some humans cannot overcome the onslaught of our chemical environment. Air quality, genetically modified foods, water, pesticides, plastics, medications, cleaning agents, personal care products, fuels, paints, electromagnetic frequencies, basically anything we eat, drink, 
touch or breathe can be problematic.

In 2012, Dr. Wand began an environmental medicine course with Walter J Crinnion, ND. Dr. Crinnion has over three decades of clinical experience in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with illnesses with environmental involvement. He is the author of the book Clean, Green, and Lean.

Dr. Wand believes the starting point for most illness is the interaction of the patient  with the environment. Many symptoms can have a direct relationship to the unhealthy environment around us. Dr. Wand uses the Toxic CORE (Chemical Occurrence & Related Exposures) Profile to determine which selected chemicals are present in high levels and how they may be affecting one’s health.
