In the modern world, the health-optimizing regimens we develop for our patients may be ineffective when implemented in an environment of pervasive, endocrine-disrupting chemicals. While patients are continually exposed to an alarming number of these toxic environmental agents, this webinar focuses on a group of chemicals known collectively as parabens (methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, and butylparaben).
Used as antimicrobial preservatives in many personal care, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical products, parabens have also been detected in wastewater, rivers, soil, and household dust. The use of parabens in some food packaging may permit seepage into food and beverages. Dr. Chris D. Meletis ND presents the importance of testing patients for paraben and other toxic burdens, especially when identifying obstacles to enhanced wellness.
