How to Support Recovery and Wellbeing in PFAS exposure “The forever chemicals”
This webinar provides an overview of PFAS – a class of manufactured chemicals used in many consumer and industrial products that are of significant health concern due to their persistence, bioaccumulation, and potential toxicity.
It discusses the four pillars of health (nutrition/diet, physical activity, sleep, environmental factors) and their impact on reproductive and developmental toxicity, hepatotoxicity, carcinogenesis and disruption of immunological, metabolic and endocrine pathways.
It introduces predictive markers and assessment needs and provides nutritional and phytotherapeutic strategies to recover and restore health.
We are excited to have Dr Wendy McLean an environmental ground water quality expert and wellness researcher on the health, environmental persistence, bioaccumulation, and environmental toxicity.to discuss the following:
- An overview of PFAS and their impact on health
- How to make a clinical assessment of PFAS exposure
- What the predictive markers are
- And how nutrition, physical activity, sleep and environmental factors play a role in recovery after PFAS exposure
