to connect, inform, and support people globally
who are struggling to reverse the damaging
health effects of an increasingly toxic world
Let’s face it, each day we pour dangerous toxins into our environment, saturating our air, waters, earth—and food supply—with hazardous chemicals, heavy metals, and antibiotics proven to adversely affect human, animal, and plant life. Numerous studies have shown hundreds of chemicals in humans—including children—even residues of DDT and other persisent pesticides banned in the 70’s. We act surprised at the high incidence of cancers and other diseases and yet, how can we expect to live in a toxic environment and not be affected by toxins? This website is for those whose health has already started to reflect the health of the environment they live in, who are starting to make the connections, and want to do something about it.
In particular, we focus on environmentally based illnesses, a class of conditions that are poorly understood and that conventional medicine has been slow to study and treat. These include Lyme Disease, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Fibromyalgia, Chemical Sensitivity, Electrical Sensitivity, and Mold Illness.
