Millions of people have sought medical care, and found that they have hit a wall with their doctor even though they feel very sick. There is an epidemic of tick born illnesses (Lyme Disease), mold exposure, chemicals and other toxins that are causing illness. Unfortunately, these illnesses are falling through the cracks in our health care system. Dr. Neil Nathan is discussing his book “Toxic”, which is a easy to read, but thorough journey through these toxic illnesses.
Dr. Risk’s Thoughts
I was excited to read Dr. Neil Nathan’s book, as he described what I treat in my practice every day. When people are chronically ill, there is never just one cause. We are accumulating toxins in our everyday lives, and many of us aren’t able to detox them out, hence the title “Toxic.” This is a good show to listen to for anyone with a chronic illness.
Neil Nathan, MD has been practicing medicine for 47 years, and has been Board Certified in Family Practice and Pain Management and is a Founding Diplomate of the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine and a Board member of ISEAI (The International Society for Environmentally Acquired Illness). With Dr. Rich van Konynenburg he did the ground-breaking clinical research which demonstrated the importance of methylation chemistry in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and he has recently completed a study with Dr. Robert Naviaux on the metabolomics of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. He has written several books, including Healing is Possible: New Hope for Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Persistent Pain, and Other Chronic Illnesses and On Hope and Healing: For Those Who Have Fallen Through the Medical Cracks. He has hosted an internationally syndicated radio program/podcast on Voice America called The Cutting Edge of Health and Wellness Today. He has been working to bring an awareness that mold toxicity is a major contributing factor for patients with chronic illness and lectures internationally on this subject which led to the publication of his most recent book, Mold and Mycotoxins: Current Evaluation and Treatment, 2016 and now to his most recent book Toxic: Heal Your Body from Mold Toxicity, Lyme Disease, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and Chronic Environmental Illness.
His current medical practice is the Redwood Valley Clinic in Northern California. He can be contacted most easily through his website www.neilnathanmd.com, through which consultations are available.
Dr. Nathan has been treating chronic complex medical illnesses for 25 years now, and Lyme disease for the past 15 years. As his practice has evolved, he finds himself increasingly treating the patients who have become so sensitive and toxic that they can no longer tolerate their usual treatments, and his major current interest is in finding unique ways of helping them to recover. The recent findings that mast cell activation and porphyria are more common than has been appreciated by the medical profession are of particular importance in this regard.
