Health Link To Environmental Toxins and Poor Nutrition

The dramatic rise in childhood disorders and disease signals a need for effective Integrative Healthcare for treatment and prevention.

  • Allergies affect 1 in 3 Australian children, Asthma 1 in 4, ADHD 1 in 10 and Autism nearly 1 in 100.
  • Cancer, diabetes, obesity and depression have more than doubled over the past 2 decades.
  • Wide-spread zinc, iodine and Omega 3 deficiencies adversely impact on IQ and immunity.

Nutritional supplements are not just for people who eat unbalanced meals. Agribusiness has depleted much of America’s farming soil, growing produce that actually contains fewer nutrients. Most diseases are said to be caused by unhealthy lifestyles, poor diet, lack of exercise, stress, and inadequate sleep – but have they got the whole picture?

While medical science is still ignoring this fact, many people are willing to suspend belief and investigate it with an open mind. One such doctor is Dr Nancy OHara who was interviewed by Life Matters host of the ABC radio, 15th August 2011 on the many severe health conditions affecting children today. Dr. O’Hara is a board certified Pediatrician. Until January 2010, she was the Assistant Medical Director for Defeat Autism Now! and responsible for Physican Training and the Physican Mentoring Director for Defeat Autism Now! in Europe.

Prior to her medical career, Dr. O’Hara taught children with autism. She graduated magna cum laude from Bryn Mawr College and as a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society from the University of Pennsylvania School Of Medicine. Dr OHara says that she believed disorders such as Asthma, Allergies, Eczema, Dermatitis, IBS, celiac and other digestive issues, childhood cancer, Autism and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) are linked to environmental toxins and poor nutrition. Since 1999 she has dedicated her practice to the integrative and holistic care of children with neurodevelopmental disorders and Autistic Spectrum Disorder. See an interview of her here.

There is a mountain of evidence that the common household cleaners and body-care products people buy from the supermarket, are contributing to the dramatic increases in many diseases. Many of the common laundry, kitchen & bathroom cleaning products we use contain chemicals known as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Things like phosphorous, chlorine, formaldehyde, bleach, etc. are regarded as VOCs and are definitely not ‘body-friendly’.

It now appears that many of the’wonder cleaners’ and other household products, people purchase every month from their local supermarket, have a case to answer regarding increased pollution levels in the average home and generally contributing to the ‘Toxic Brew’ that is now find in the human body. Dr OHara works with adults and children to integrate their therapies, medications, and other interventions in a thorough and holistic fashion.

Other chronic illnesses she addresses using this integrative approach include, but are not limited to, gastrointestinal disorders, chronic or recurrent infections, food sensitivities, allergies, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Lyme disease, chronic strep/ PANDAS, autoimmune disorders, metabolic disorders, and malnutrition.
