For what kind of medical conditions does the Mill Creek Environmental Health Clinic provide assistance?
The clinician at the Mill Creek Environmental Health Clinic is dedicated to assisting patients with various chronic medical conditions: Those that are well known as much as those that are poorly known, or unseen yet. Provided that patients have been appropriately investigated by their family doctors and/or relevant specialists, they can then be seen at the Mill Creek Environmental Health Clinic for an in-depth assessment that targets modifiable psycho-socio-environmental factors for further optimization.
Some chronic conditions are treated with special modalities (ex. medications) while other conditions have no known treatment. In all cases, a review and correction of modifiable factors often proves helpful.
This being said, the clinic has a dedicated expertise in assisting patients who suffer from environmental illnesses, chemical sensitivities, food intolerances, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and unexplained infertility.
On what principles is based the approach used at the Mill Creek Environmental Health Clinic?
The approach used at the Mill Creek Environmental Health Clinic is aimed at optimizing health in a given context by optimizing the emotional and physical environments of the patient, thus addressing modifiable factors.
When an individual suffers from several illnesses, is disabled and/or is on several medications, the situation can become too often overwhelming for the patient, the family and the primary care provider and quality of life affected significantly. A holistic approach can help reduce the impact and intensity of the combined multi-morbidity by helping to identify and correct causative factors.
