- Understanding the increasing exposure and symptoms of heavy metals and radioactive elements.
- Evaluating for metals and radioactive elements through laboratory, environmental and clinical testing.
- Basic understanding of treatment through detoxification, diet, targeted nutraceutical and pharmaceutical therapy.
Synopsis: The prevalence of heavy metals and exposure to radioactive elements is increasing in many places, while the awareness and recognition of the ill effects on health is decreasing. As the potential for toxic exposures increases in the environment, food, and water, health practitioners should be aware of how to assess and treat. Toxicity and ill effects of metals and radioactive elements are not usually taught in basic medical and nursing education; therefore, it is imperative that practitioners have some basic understanding of assessment and treatment.
