The Center for Occupational & Environmental Medicine (COEM) has successfully treated patients from all over the world since 1978. Our office consists of MD’s and a full support staff dedicated to helping patients gain optimal health.
Our physicians have seen many cases of mold exposure and its toxic effects. We are experienced in the accurate diagnosis and treatment of mold injuries.
Chemical Toxicity Many disorders and diseases can be caused or exacerbated by an overload of stored chemical toxins. Addressing this aspect of the Total Body Stress Load can be truly life saving for people chemically injured through acute or chronic chemical exposures. Our toxic body burdens are critical to our health. This is why we often say, “We don’t just get sick, but are being made sick.” At the root of hypersensitivity to common airborne pollutants–such as pesticides, synthetic fragrances, and petrochemical fumes—are three common problems: an increased body burden of toxins, a depletion of key nutrients used in the body’s normal detoxification processes, and, at times, an inherently weak detoxification system.
Some of the chemicals we encounter in our daily lives are man-made, but there are many more chemicals which are not. They may be present in our food, in the air, and in water – exposing us regularlythroughout each day. There are far more natural chemicals in our environment than man-made ones, but both can have poisonous effects. Man-made chemicals are in use all around us – from pesticides to cosmetics and baby bottles to computers – our lives, today,create a sense of need to rely on them.
At the Center for Occupational and Environmental Medicine, we aim to address all aspects of thyroid care and provide conventional, comprehensive, and integrative thyroid-specific care to our patients. We have a team of thyroid treatment specialists who have undergone advanced training in evaluating thyroid nodules and conducting thyroid ultrasound and biopsy. We are also proficient in thyroid hormone replacement, treatment of thyroid cancer, and advanced non-invasive techniques.
We are one of the most sought after comprehensive thyroid treatment centers in Charleston, South Carolina, and our method of evaluating the patients is unique. We believe that it is essential to take an in-depth patient history, including the medical, social, occupational, emotional, and environmental aspects of a patient’s life. After that, the doctor develops a proposed, comprehensive treatment plan for the patient.
Allergy is more than just a runny nose. In the practice of Environmental Medicine, allergy is the number one environmentally caused disease or disorder. Yet many people don’t realize how many different problems can develop because of allergies.
The term allergy was first introduced by Dr. Von Pirquet in 1904 and was defined as “any altered reaction to a substance.” This definition of allergy was generally accepted until 1967, when Dr. Ishizaka isolated immunoglobulin E in a person’s
blood and identified this protein as the specific marker to identify allergic reactions. With identification of what was then thought of as the only physiological means of mediating allergy, the term allergy came to be applied only to immunoglobulin E (IgE) mediated reactions.
