Among the complex health conditions that I study, diagnose, treat, and write about, Environmentally Acquired Illness (EAI) continues to reveal itself as an pervasive underlying factor. If you’re unfamiliar with EAI, it covers a category of illnesses caused by mold and biotoxin exposure; Lyme disease and other persistent infections; toxic chemicals such as pesticides, heavy metals, air pollution/smog, and dust; and other irritants found in our natural environment.
EAI is so pervasive that there’s even an international medical society dedicated to raising awareness of the environmental causes of inflammatory illnesses and to support the recovery of patients affected by these illnesses through the integration of clinical practice, education, and research. That organization — the International Society for Environmentally Acquired Illness (ISEAI) — recently interviewed me about my healthcare practice and approach to patient care.
Below is an except for that interview, along with a link to read the entire write-up on ISEAI’s website:
