EHC-D Tour of The Center – Day 1

EHC-D Tour of the Center – Day 1
What makes the Environmental Health Center special?
 
Our medical program reflects the principle that each patient is unique. We recognize that one individual’s environmental exposures and resulting symptoms can be different from that of another person. Through careful evaluation, analyzing environmental, biochemical, and nutritional factors, we create an individualized treatment program for each patient aimed at achieving the goal of optimal health. During this process, each patient is encouraged to participate by contributing, self –observations, pertinent medical laboratory findings, and personal insights.
