acupuncture may be the right treatment solution to improve ground regulation system.
Brain SPECT Scan (Triple Camera)
Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography is performed with a new radionuclide which has proven safe for the sensitive patient. This Scan uses three cameras to give a 3 dimensional exposure of the organ investigated. The radionuclide crosses the blood brain barrier and remains frozen in the brain. This phenomenon provides an accurate cerebral map of regional brain physiology. The tomography provides anatomic and brain function information.
Holes or defects in the surface of the brain represent decreases in perfusion (absorption) and decreases in neuronal activity. Chemicals cause decreases in neuronal activity, the radionuclide is not absorbed and dark areas are seen. The SPECT shows blood flow and the neuronal activity of certain parts of the brain making it possible to distinguish what functional activities of a specific portion of the brain are impaired.
This scan is successfully utilized to differentiate dementia from depression and can verify memory problems. It can assess vascular disease and can identify brain tissue at rest for infarct. It can provide the prognosis of a completed stroke. Seizure disorders can be mapped, and chronic fatigue syndrome diagnosed. It can provide evidence of drug or alcohol abuse.
Its most important function for the chemically exposed or chemically sensitive patient is its ability to show toxic substance exposure, the areas of the brain which are affected, and the degree of involvement. This information is important for verifying diagnoses related to toxic substance exposure and in prescribing correct treatments. The results of this Brain SPECT Scan have been used successfully in toxic exposure court cases.
Other scans which are available for patients of the Environmental Health Center-Dallas are heart scans and bone scans.
Chemical Depuration Program
(Combining Heat Depuration Chambers and Physical Therapy)
This outpatient means of treating toxic exposures is a six-day-per-week, physician-supervised program consisting of dry heat, exercise, massage, vitamin and mineral replacement, administration of xenobiotic binding substances and monitoring of toxin levels in blood and/or fat tissue.
Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia
The Environmental Health Center-Dallas strives to determine the cause of the fatigue or muscle pain. To understand cause and effect creates effective treatment, promotes a positive attitude toward recovery, and stimulates patient compliance. We investigate causes related to organ functioning and issues related to environmental exposures. Much chronic fatigue comes from chemical and food exposures though some can come from viral and bacterial infections like chronic Lyme disease.
We investigate the functioning of the thyroid and adrenal glands to see if they are the cause of the fatigue. If so, we treat the problem with compounded pure medications and nutrients. We can skin test a person for any prescribed medication to ensure that it produces no ill effects.
The Environmental Health Center –Dallas is also going to investigate sensitivities or allergies as a cause of fatigue and muscle and joint pain. With preservative free antigens we will determine if any sensitivity to foods, chemicals, pollens, dust, dust mites or molds are responsible for this facet of your illness. If it is found that a correlation exists, you will be treated with antigens which address the specific sensitivity. Avoidance of the offending food or substance can be recommended, and the use of environmental controls to lessen your exposure to the particulate, chemical or allergen can be suggested.
We will determine through laboratory analysis if a toxic body burden is a contributing factor to your fatigue or fibromyalgia. You will be evaluated for heavy metal toxicity and for volatile organic chemicals or pesticides which could be stored in tissues or organs including the brain. If these are found, you will be treated with deep heat chamber chemical detoxification and with oral and IV nutrient therapy. IV or oral chelation can also be prescribed. Oxygen therapy is sometimes prescribed to aid the detoxification and organ healing process.
Complete blood count (CBC), comprehensive metabolic profiles (CMP), red blood cell analysis of minerals, and nutritional analysis of vitamin and amino acid levels can be utilized to determine if a nutrient or mineral deficiency is responsible for the fatigue or fibromyalgia. All mineral levels will be evaluated for their adequacy and proper relationship to other nutrients. If deficiencies or dysregulations exist, additional tests can be performed and treatments directed to areas of specific need.
The health of the gastrointestinal tract is assessed for excessive yeast, and for unfriendly bacteria and parasites. Special diets, medications or auto vaccines can be created to aid in correcting the problem.
Laboratory tests can be performed to determine if any replicating virus is contributing to the fatigue. A positive finding can lead to assessment of immune system functioning. Therapies to improve immune response are gamma globulin injections and the self-derived T-lymphocyte biological response modifier. Medications are sometimes utilized. However, herbal remedies are available to treat viral infections due to the adverse responses many persons have to medications.
The Environmental Health Center-Dallas will evaluate your home environment to see if it is contributing to your health issues. Air analysis and mold plates are available at the clinic. These allow you to assess the quality of your home air. You will be instructed in the creation of a safe or less toxic home which contains an oasis for healing. This oasis will be an environment which is accommodating to your sensitivities containing only less toxic furnishings with particulate and chemical air purification systems.
The Environmental Health Center-Dallas looks beyond the ordinary to find reasons for illness. We investigate all possibilities which can affect a symptom response. From heredity to home and work environment, from allergen to toxicity, and from immune parameters to nutritional deficiency, assessments will be made. Treatments target specific findings. Our goal is to eliminate or treat the cause and reduce or eliminate the symptom.

Medical Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (Thermography) – Another diagnostic tool used by the Environmental Health Center-Dallas in disease prevention and in the creation of treatment protocols is this infrared imaging known as Thermography. This service is provided to all who are interested in early detection of potential health problems and in strategies for the creation of a healthier lifestyle.
Thermography is a sophisticated clinical imaging tool which records thermal changes in skin temperature. It is safe for women with mastectomies, implants, and can be performed on all ages.
It identifies physiological changes in the body at the cellular level. It detects skin temperature variances caused by new blood vessel growth reflecting possible predisposition to cancer, hormonal changes, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, musculoskeletal changes and soft tissue injury.
It can be used to screen for headaches, neck and back problems, digestive disorders, thyroid disorders, sinus infections and lung abnormalities. Thermal imaging can examine as few as 256 cells to detect cellular changes. This provides an advantage over conventional anatomical imaging which requires over one billion cells for detection and can occur 8-9 years in the future. This provides the physician with a diagnostic tool to aid disease prevention, to treat or further evaluate thermography findings, and to change diet or environment to create a healthier lifestyle. It allows the physician to evaluate his treatment protocols and their effectiveness as thermography can be repeated as often as desired without any health risk.
The Environmental Health Center-Dallas is proud to be able to offer this diagnostic tool to you. Early detection of disease or areas of concern can afford early therapies. Repeated evaluations enable treatment success to be evaluated.
Bio Regulation Therapy (BRT)
Bioregulation Therapy (BRT) is a unique, holistic and highly effective modality that uses biofeedback and advanced pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) technology to improve biological communications at the cellular level. Cellular communication is critical to supporting the body’s adaptation and self-regulation processes, which in turn, help the body to better ward off disease, heal naturally and restore inner balance. BRT can be used on its own, or in conjunction with other types of of alternative and conventional therapies.
During a BRT session, low-intensity electromagnetic signals are sent to targeted communication channels in the body. These BRT signals help to bridge inner communication paths and reestablish natural adaptation and regulation activities. Clinical experience shows that BRT can help to dissipate sensitivity reactions and accelerate natural healing. Download the BRT flyer.
