Does toxicity affect health?

Did you know that a sick body could not properly heal if it is burdened with a load of toxins? Over 200 chemicals are already found in an American infant according to a Tufts University study. No wonder chronic disease is the principle cause of disability, and consumes 78% of health expenditures.  

Are you suffering from chronic disease and wondering what factors are obstacles to your healing? Are you suffering as a consequence to toxic overload? What detoxification pathways in your body are under-functioning? What nutritional co-factors responsible for these pathways are deficient? Dr. Chan use modifications to your environment, diet, exercise, nutritional intake, specialized herbs and nutraceuticals to affect your detoxification epigenetic expression. 

Epigenetics is the study how gene expression can be changed without altering the gene itself. Think of the volume control knob on your stereo; the volume can be adjusted without changing the hardwiring (the genes that you inherited from your parents). For example, methylation, a detoxification pathway, can be epigenetically affected by taking vitamin B12, and folate. This is an example that shows what you put in your body can affect how genes in these detoxification pathways are expressed. Dr. Emily will work with you to optimize your body’s ability to get rid of toxins.
