Many animal lovers are aware of the potential health effects of the growing levels of toxins in our everyday lives. They are looking for practical guidance in reducing their pets’ exposure. I have a particular interest in environmental medicine and the effects of environmental toxicity. It has a lasting impact on our own and our pets’ health as well as that of future generations and the environment.
As part of the lifestyle medicine focus of my practice, I help pet owners identify and reduce or eliminate possible sources of toxins for their pets and support elimination of the accumulated toxin load.
I believe that there is a direct connection between the health of the planet and our own health. Today, the majority of us and our animals are affected by the cumulative effects of the growing number of toxins that we are exposed to in our air, food and water.
Add this to the lack of nutrients in our food and inappropriate food choices for ourselves and our animals and we are seeing soaring levels of chronic disease and a lack of “wellness”.
Through education and applying the principles of integrative medicine, my goal is to inspire people to improve their pets’ health and the condition of the environment for future generations.
