Environmental Testing Q&A
Environmental variables can have a significant impact on your health, ranging from the quality of the air you breathe to the state of the roads you travel on. Furthermore, these elements have developed significantly over time as a result of both natural and man-made occurrences. Environmental testing is available at White Rock Naturopathic Clinic in Surrey, BC. For more information, contact us today or book an appointment online. We are conveniently located at #208 – 1676 Martin Dr., Surrey, BC V4A 6E7. We serve patients from Surrey BC, White Rock BC, Grandview Heights BC, Campbell Heights BC, Newton BC, Morgan Heights BC, and surrounding areas.
A Major Cause of Developmental Disorders and Chronic Illnesses Is Toxic Chemicals
Through things like medications, insecticides, packaged foods, home goods, and environmental pollution, we are exposed to hundreds of harmful substances every day. We are now facing an increasing number of chronic diseases like cancer, heart disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, chemical sensitivity, autism spectrum disorders, ADD/ADHD, autoimmune disorders, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease as we have grown accustomed to chemical-laden products and as our environment has become more contaminated.
Comprehensive environmental testing is available from White Rock Naturopathic to determine exposure to toxic organic chemicals. Non-invasive (urine) screening for exposure to and contamination from 168 toxic chemicals, 10 distinct toxic pollutants, and contaminants from plasticizers (phthalates, styrene), pyrethroid insecticides (six different compounds, including pyrethrin), vinyl chloride, benzene, and 2,4-D, the most widely used weed killer in the world, as well as toxic petrol additives (MTBE, ETBE), is also included. Testing of tiglylglycine, a marker for mitochondrial damage brought on by hazardous substances, is also included. Screening for glyphosate, the major component of Roundup, is offered separately. The alarming rise in cancer, miscarriages, autism, and other neurological disorders as well as life-altering birth abnormalities has been attributed to insidious exposure in the population.
