Dr. Kennedy The discipline of environmental medicine grew out of the attempt to deal with allergies and sensitivities. The point view of EM is that symptoms of disease, at least of many diseases, are directly related to factors in the environment. Thus when you visit an EM specialist you are going to receive not only a thorough medical history and physical examination, but a detailed look at factors in your environment with the intention of identifying and removing or altering those items which contribute to your illness. This may include, but is not limited to, toxic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, food additives, air pollution, water pollution (more common than you think), and items to which you may be sensitive or allergic.

The focus in EM is on allergy, the inhalant variety as well as the diagnosis of food and chemical sensitivities, yeast syndrome, auto-immune disorders, endocrine imbalances, and nutritional deficiencies. These doctors usually also practice nutritional medicine and anti-aging medicine. Many offer chelation therapy, and/or IV Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy, and/or enzyme potentiated desensitization as well.
