It is not a question of if you are exposed to environmental stressors but how well enabled is your body to respond?

When environmental impacts outweigh the body's ability to respond and return to homeostasis, an imbalance occurs.  

Sometimes this happens in a minute by minute, but it also happens over hundreds of years (evolution).

At times, the new status quo it has settled with is not the ultimate state.

The key to improving health is to reduce the load your environmental impact, and watch for signs of your key adaptors trying to set a new status quo. 

5 areas of environmental impact

  • Toxins (i.e. PCB's, pesticides, phthalates, volatile organic compounds, dioxins, asbestos, heavy metals, chloroform, chlorine)
  • Allergens (food, mold, dust, animal products, pollens, chemicals) 
  • Microbes (bacteria, yeast, parasites, worms, prions) 
  • Stress (physical or psychological) 
  • SAD diet (SAD = Standard American diet)
