» Toxin/Toxicosis

Toxin exposure is increasingly common in modern society. Environmental toxins are now a widespread and common problem. The many diseases and health problems caused by toxins are still being investigated and argued by conventional medical scientists. The problem is compounded by the government regulatory system and the adversarial legal system. In this type of regulatory environment straight, clear answers are very hard to come by for patients and practicing clinicians alike. For example, the U.S. E.P.A. recently named mercury as the most toxic, non-radioactive substance in existence, and yet Mercury is the main preservative still used in childrens vaccines. The FDA is finally taking action to remove mercury from vaccines, however. Many people also have mercury dental fillings. Scientific research conducted by two major Universities has recently related mercury dental fillings to Alzheimer's syndrome. A federal class action suit has also been filed over the toxicity of mercury dental fillings and the State of Maine is considering banning the use of mercury fillings. So should patients consider having their fillings replaced? This is a difficult question and must be answered on a case by case basis, but what science fails to explain, Clinical Art must still remedy.

The term "toxicosis" is used to describe the underlying fundamental disturbance in health when toxins are the suspected cause. Detoxification for such cases is commonly used in Homeopathic Integrative Medicine. Various forms of specific organ detoxification, such as liver or colon cleansing, as well as methods of general detoxification can aid with self healing in chronic diseases. There are also methods of detoxification for metabolic, physical or emotional conditions. In each of these cases, the fundamental concept of Homeopathic Integrative health care called terrain therapy is involved. The Body's Terrain can be compared to the "Soil" in which disease takes Root. Conventional medicine usually treats disease after it occurs... Likewise, Homeopathy can also treat diseases, but preferentially focuses on keeping the "Terrain" or "Soil" the disease takes "root in" as healthy and resistant as possible. In this way health is maintained before a crisis develops. This is why Homeopathic therapy includes methods of detoxification. The basic idea of detoxification methods being prevention is better than cure.

At Bio Health Center we recommend that anyone with chronic, unexplained medical problems consider being tested for toxins. Various Homeopathic Integrative detoxification treatments, including chelation therapy, are regulated by the Nevada Board of Homeopathic Medical Examiners. Dr. Edwards and Bio Health Center staff are licensed and certified by the Nevada Homeopathic Medical board. Detoxification methods simply offer another choice for maintaining health or for treating chronic health problems... and at Bio health Center, we believe it is All about your personal health care choice!

"The healthy patient is a harmonious integration of Mind, Body and Spirit. Dis-Ease may occur on any or all of these levels. After practicing clinical medicine for over 25 years, I have reached the profound recognition that much Disease that afflicts Humanity is due to Man's imperfect understanding of himself and Nature. Although 'science' rejects any endeavor it views as 'metaphysical,' it is my professional opinion that any discipline that rejects the Spirit of Man cannot achieve final Wisdom."
