Evolution Medicine is excited to bring to you its first Functional Forum based on the emerging field of Environmental Medicine. This topic came sharply into focus before 2015 when two major medical institutions, including the Endocrine Society, announced an important position on toxins in the environment and their harm towards health. For this episode of the forum, we traveled to the Environmental Health Symposium in San Diego, California to hear from experts and leaders in the field, not only in the clinical developed delivery of Environmental Medicine but also, the clinical focus- the day to day clinical operations of Environmental Medicine. We, also, include some new innovations and how we can make this scalable and available to everyone. The title of this conference was called NeuroInflammation; The Elephant in the Waiting Room.
The keynote for this conference is one of the leaders in the field of Environmental Medicine, Dr. Walter Crinnion. He is a Naturopathic doctor who has been a leading educator in the field of Environmental Medicine for three decades. Walter Crinnion will be delivering part of his keynote on Neuroinflammation, one of the major causes of chronic disease. Joining Dr. Crinnion are a number of Naturopathic doctors who have been dedicated to the field of Environmental Medicine, like Dr. Lyn Patrick, Dr. Hyla Cass, and Dr. Jill Carnahan, Dr. Aviad Elgez and Dr. Marisol Teijeiro.
Dr. Marisol Teijeiro will be interviewed about her ingenious "Community on a Cleanse", a 200 person group detox that she leads twice a year for her whole community. The episode will be an hour long and we are actively encouraging everyone to watch the episode within a community (at least with one other provider). You can find one in your local area, or you can start your own meet up.
We will be posing a question at the end of the episode for the meetups to discuss.
This episode will include:
What is the history of Environmental Medicine and what started it?
How can we do a differential diagnosis on the main five environmental toxins?
How do we scale this type of care to the whole community?
How do we reduce environmental toxin exposure in the community?
How do we get out there and educate people about the major sources of toxicity's in the home?

About The Functional Forum
The Evolution of Medicine is thrilled to announce a new theme for our Functional Forums in 2017. Each monthly episode will focus on a different medical specialty and connect the value of a functional medicine approach to its evolution. This comes at a time where use of specialists is becoming an ever more costly drag on medical systems worldwide.
Each Forum will provide practitioners from all walks of medicine, not only Primary Care and Family Medicine, but all the integrative professions, with the clinical keys and practical emerging models to deliver truly effective predictive, preventive and participatory medicine.
With our unprecedented global meetup infrastructure, we will also seek to create new relationships locally between current specialists and with integrative providers in order to stimulate the creation of the specialty centers of the future.
