Environmental Toxicity Testing and Care in Green Bay

If you counted every synthetic chemical and ingredient you came into contact with each day, you’d have a long list. Modern life makes environmental toxicity unavoidable, however, there are therapies and habits that reduce our toxic burdens. Often, these toxins accumulate in our bodies and can’t be removed on their own. Holistic medicine can facilitate these detox pathways.

Do you feel fatigued, anxious, bloated, or constantly sick?

These can be signs of high toxicity. To most doctors, these are “mystery symptoms,” and there’s not much they can do for you. However, Kelly Felmer, DNP, and her team use advanced testing,  personalized care, cellular energy restoration, and more to get you feeling your best. Don’t let mold and chemicals hold you back from living a vibrant life.

What is Environmental Toxicity?

Environmental toxicity refers to the accumulation of harmful substances in the body due to exposure to pollutants in our surroundings. These toxins can come from various sources, including the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and the products we use daily. 

Over time, these toxins can build up in our bodies and lead to a range of health issues. Our Green Bay clinic offers a holistic approach to identifying and treating these toxic exposures, focusing on the root causes of symptoms rather than just addressing the symptoms themselves.

Six Symptoms of Environmental Toxicity

Chronic Fatigue

Persistent tiredness that doesn't improve with rest can be a sign of toxin overload. When the body is burdened with toxins, it must work harder to perform basic functions, which can drain energy levels. Over time, this constant state of overexertion can lead to chronic fatigue, leaving individuals feeling exhausted even after a full night's sleep. This type of fatigue often goes unrecognized as a symptom of environmental toxicity, as it can easily be attributed to other factors like stress or lack of sleep.

Skin Problems

Rashes, eczema, and other skin conditions can be manifestations of internal toxicity trying to expel through the skin. The skin is a major detoxification organ, and when the body's internal detox systems (like the liver and kidneys) are overwhelmed, toxins can be expelled through the skin, leading to various dermatological issues. Conditions like acne, dermatitis, and psoriasis can all be made worse by toxin exposure, but they are frequently treated as isolated skin problems rather than symptoms of a deeper issue.

Headaches and Migraines

Frequent headaches or migraines can indicate exposure to environmental toxins such as heavy metals or chemicals. These substances can cause inflammation and affect the nervous system, leading to recurrent pain. Toxins like lead, mercury, and certain industrial chemicals can disrupt the body's natural processes, triggering headaches as the body tries to cope with their presence. Many people in Green Bay may not realize that their migraines are linked to environmental factors, instead attributing them to dietary triggers or stress.

Cognitive Difficulties

Memory loss, difficulty concentrating, and brain fog can be signs of toxin exposure. Toxins such as heavy metals, solvents, and pesticides can cross the blood-brain barrier, leading to neuroinflammation and disrupting cognitive functions. This can manifest as forgetfulness, reduced attention span, and a general feeling of mental cloudiness, often described as "brain fog." These symptoms can sometimes be overlooked or misattributed to aging or psychological stress.

Digestive Issues

Symptoms such as bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea can result from toxins disrupting gut health. The gastrointestinal system is particularly sensitive to environmental toxins, which can alter the balance of gut flora and damage the lining of the intestines. This can lead to increased intestinal permeability, often referred to as "leaky gut," where toxins and undigested food particles enter the bloodstream, causing widespread inflammation and digestive discomfort. These issues are often misdiagnosed as food intolerances or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Mood Disorders

Anxiety, depression, and irritability may be linked to the impact of toxins on the endocrine and nervous systems. Environmental toxins can interfere with the production and regulation of hormones and neurotransmitters, leading to mood imbalances. For example, exposure to certain chemicals has been linked to disruptions in serotonin and dopamine levels, which can contribute to feelings of depression and anxiety. These mood changes are often treated with medication without investigating potential environmental causes.

Generalized Symptoms Mean You Need a Practitioner Who Specializes in Environmental Toxicity

It’s clear that symptoms of toxin exposure usually show up as generalized issues that many doctors miss. Traditional medical practitioners often focus on specific symptoms without considering environmental factors that might be causing them. This approach can lead to misdiagnosis or incomplete treatment, as the underlying cause remains unaddressed.

Common Environmental Toxins

1. Mold

Mold exposure, especially in damp or water-damaged buildings, can lead to respiratory issues, allergies, and neurological symptoms.


2. Household Chemicals

Cleaning products, pesticides, and other household items often contain harmful chemicals that can affect respiratory and skin health.


3. Workplace Chemicals

Industrial chemicals, solvents, and other workplace toxins can pose serious health risks, leading to chronic conditions over time.


4. Heavy Metals

Exposure to heavy metals like lead, mercury, and cadmium can occur through contaminated water, food, or occupational exposure, affecting multiple body systems.


The Role of Advanced Testing

Advanced testing is a crucial aspect of functional medicine and helps us identify specific toxins that may be contributing to your symptoms. Most primary care physicians aren't equipped to detect mold or other environmental toxins, but at Discovery Health Healing Center, we use specialized tests to uncover hidden toxins and understand their impact on your health. 

These tests can include blood, urine, and hair analyses to detect heavy metals, mycotoxins, and other pollutants. We work closely with you to figure out what’s causing your symptoms and will explore many avenues to make sure we look at all possible contributors.
