About this Years Conference


“Reducing Toxic Load”


The Environmental Health Symposium is the premier Environmental Medicine conference dedicated to helping clinicians become proficient and current in diagnosing and treating patients whose illness stems from a burden of toxic compounds. This conference provides strategies to prevent and reverse the conditions that are threatening the health and vitality of this and future generations to come.

Each year we invite the experts to join EHS and present the latest and most accurate information.  Our twelve presenters from last years’ conference had a combined total of 824 peer-reviewed published articles.  This year the conference will be focused on who is most vulnerable to toxic exposures and providing evidence for reducing the total toxic load that all persons carry.

The CDC reports that over 120 toxic chemicals and metals, out of a total of 246 measured, are present in the average U.S. resident. This load is a prime causative factor for all of the epidemic chronic diseases in the U.S. and must be addressed.

Effective means of avoidance and reduction of toxic exposures will be explained in easily adaptable protocols.

Speakers will present their decades worth of experience to the attendees;  Solid evidence of toxicant reduction, biomarker and clinical improvement will be presented.   You will hear what actually works, not just hopeful theory.

Using current treatment strategies that are peer-reviewed and published in the current medical literature, this conference will provide a solution to the unsustainable current situation of exposure and disease.

At this conference you will:

  • Learn effective strategies that safely lower body burden and improve health outcomes.
  • Gain expertise in evaluating body burden of toxicants from experts in the field of Environmental Medicine.
  • Discover the newest research and the most useful laboratory testing in the field of toxicogenomics and how to apply this knowledge in helping individual patients.
  • Become an expert in the application of nutrition and botanical strategies for reducing body burden and avoidance of everyday toxicants in your patients and yourself.

Come to EHS and join the growing community of healthcare providers committed to offering answers to the increasing number of patients with conditions related to toxic environmental exposures.

is a clinician who researched how toxicants leave the human body in blood, urine and sweat (BUS). He has published his findings in a series of articles including the most recent on the mobilization of PBDEs.  He worked for many years as an Obstetrician/Gynaecologist, before turning his focus to Environmental Health Sciences and the impact of environmental factors on prenatal health, as well as on chronic physical and mental health problems.



is trained in Bau Biologie, the science of healthy buildings and  provides environmental consulting for residential and commercial buildings. Mary will cover major offgassing sources and the use of air and water purifiers. She will also include SVOCs, which don't outgas, but are released into the indoor environment in  a different way.



is a pioneer and leader in the field of environmental medicine and the recipient of the Environmental Medicine Pioneer award at EHS 2016. Dr. Rea has been doing depuration therapy on environmentally poisoned individuals at the Environmental Health Center Dallas for decades. He will present data on the effectiveness of his protocols to reduce toxicant burden and restore health.



is a developmental pediatrician at The Children’s Institute in Pittsburgh, PA, where he is working with children with severe developmental and behavioral disorders, including autism. He was the lead author in the exciting new study entitled: A cleanroom sleeping environment's impact on markers of oxidative stress, immune dysregulation, and behavior in children with autism spectrum disorders. He will present his impressive finding on the benefit of simple environmental avoidance techniques with ASD children.
