Below are the "disrupters" that are prevalent in our modern world, keeping us from performing at our best. While we take specific approaches to rid the body of these toxins, your body has an innate ability to heal itself. At The Lee Clinic, we test your hormones and vitamins as well, to make sure your immune system is functioning at its best.
Heavy Metal Toxicity
Throughout our lives, we can be exposed to heavy metals that can accumulate within our bodies and slowly wreak havoc on your nervous system, immune system and hormones. For example, exposure to mercury is common in patients with a history of dental fillings as well as those who are tuna lovers. We also test for lead, arsenic, cadmium and nickel as cigarette smoke exposure, batteries, older buildings and general industrial pollution are also common culprits.
These are xeno-estrogens (estrogen like compounds) found in plastics, skin creams, fertilizers, fungicides, and petrochemicals. These are known to increase the risk of breast, uterine and ovarian cancers in women and prostate cancer in men. It is also implicated in the blood dyscrasias in children and adults. At The Lee Clinic, we can test for these and initiate a protocol to help your body detoxify and regain homeostasis.
