|The Environmental Health Center – Dallas is a premier environmental health provider offering a unique, innovative, nontoxic approach to the solution of human health problems related to environmental pollutant exposure, including chemical and electromagnetic sensitivity. The center is considered by many people to be one of the pioneers and a recognized world authority on the manipulation of the patient’s environment.
We use natural and various treatment methods to solve individuals’ and groups’ sensitivity problems that have occurred from environmental pollutant overload. We have experience in diagnosing and treating more than 40,000 environmentally sensitive patients with our innovative techniques.In our treatment process, we have developed less-toxic building technology and have evaluated, aided in construction, or advised on the remodeling of more than 20,000 private and public buildings.
This experience makes us one of the most experienced and innovative groups in the world on the subject of less-toxic buildings. Our laboratory has been a leader in the development of tests for defining the problem of chemical and electromagnetic sensitivity. We have developed in our own laboratory or in conjunction with other groups, practical and reliable analyses of blood levels of toxic chemicals, T&B lymphocytes, cell cycles and phagocytic indices, the management of vitamin, mineral, and amino acid levels, computerized balance testing, brain metabolism assessments by means of SPECT scans, objective autonomic nervous system evaluation through the heart rate variability, psychological brain function tests and peripheral sensory nerve evaluation.
We are the pioneers in the use of inhaled challenges of commonly encountered concentrations of chemicals, as well as the electromagnetic fixed EMF challenge and we, have performed more than 15,000 ambient dose inhaled challenges and hundreds of EMF tests. Our facility is designed and operated utilizing our less-toxic techniques and has a unique construction using low outgassing materials including porcelain fused on steel, aluminum, hardwood, plaster and ceramic tile. The air and water de-pollution devices used in our office were developed in conjunction with commercial companies and the monitoring devices are part of techniques developed by the Environmental Health Center – Dallas.
Our vast experience in treating the chemically sensitive patient includes people from the Alaskan oil spills, Desert Storm (British and American soldiers), 911 victims of other large exposures and those individuals who have become ill at home or work from exposures to carpets, paints, pesticides, solvents, formaldehydes, and many other chemical agents.
Exposures and the resulting sensitivity can trigger a variety of symptoms. One of our areas of expertise includes heart problems. With cardiovascular disease, EHC-D physicians work especially in the diagnosis and treatment of vasculitis, cardiac arrhythmia, Raynaud’s disease and related phenomena, Burger’s disease, recurrent thrombophlebitis, and pulmonary embolism. We also frequently address the surgical and medical aspects of arteriosclerosis and reflex sympathetic dystrophy.
Since its inception in 1974, center physicians have worked in the diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory vascular disease and its relationship to pollutants in air, food, and water. Etiology can now be defined in many cases. The removal of causes along with nutrient treatment, dietary manipulation, injection therapy, acupuncture, homeopathy, oxygen therapy, and immune modulations can usually restore health to patients in a non-toxic manner.
The techniques that we have developed for these patients involve programs of appropriate avoidance of pollutants in air, food, and water; injection therapy for the relief of secondary sensitivities to food and biological inhalants (molds, pollens, etc.), as well as some chemicals; nutritional therapy both parenteral and oral; heat depuration, immune, modulators; physical therapy (sauna, massage, exercise), and autogenous immune factor. The autogenous lymphocyte factor (ALF) was discovered and developed at the EHC-Dallas.
