Environmental Illness Root Causes.
Although it is possible to contract an Environmental Illness through a one-time High-level exposure to industrial chemicals, poisons, radiation, etc. This is not normally the case.
For most of us, our Environmental illness is a long-term result of living in an environment of poor air quality containing low levels of hundreds of V.O.C. class chemicals and other toxins combined with nutritional shortfalls in our daily diet.
The end result leaves us with a body that is being damaged faster than it can detox, repair or replace damaged cells.
