Read More About Our Environmental Health
The four volumes in Dr. William Rea’s series of medical textbooks, Chemical Sensitivity, published by CRC Press and Lewis Publishers are available. As the first major scientific series on chemical sensitivity, the series results from the study of more than 30,000 patients seen since 1974 at the Environmental Health Center in Dallas, and over 100,000 patients from around the world as well as over 5,000 references from scientific literature. The Environmental Physician newsletter states,

“Environmentally oriented physicians, allergists, nutritionists, physicians in preventative and occupational medicine, and medical students will find that Chemical Sensitivity is truly a magnum opus in the field of toxicology and will prove to be a classic reference.”

Chemical Sensitivity Vol. 1 – Principles and Mechanisms 1992 pages 1-533 is about the basic science of the body’s metabolism effected by pollutants. What is chemical sensitivity? How do you diagnose and treat these symptoms? What’s the role of the immune and non-immune mechanisms to explain the body’s processing of pollutants? How do you nutritionally fuel the endocrine, immunological and neurological systems to respond to exposure?


Chemical Sensitivity Vol. 2 – Sources of Total Body Load – 1994 pages 534 – 1104 describes the basic science of environmental pollutants. What is total environmental load? How do you know the level of total pollutants in the air, food, and water the body processes to maintain health? This volume identifies the sources of pollutants that can contribute to body overload – stress- including water, food, food toxins, outdoor and indoor air, inorganic and organic chemicals, pesticides, formaldehyde, terpenes, and drugs. Softcover, plastic ring binder only. Hardcover not available.

How do pollutants effect the various anatomical systems – ENT/Upper Respiratory, Lower Respiratory, Chest Wall and Breast, Cardiovascular, Gastrointestinal, Genitourinary, Musculoskeletal, Endocrine, Skin, Nervous, and Ophthalmalogical? What effect do pollutants have on the unique susceptibility of children?


Chemical Sensitivity, Vol. 4 – Tools of Diagnosis and Methods of Treatment 1998 pages 2016 – 2924 presents the tools of diagnosis and methods of treatment.
