Happy Earth Day from Integrative Practitioner
Today, April 22, 2019, marks Earth Day, a celebration of environmental protection and conservation. We at Integrative Practitioner support our community in its efforts to encourage patients to live more sustainably for the health of the planet and themselves. Our experts say the patient’s environment is associated with over 70 percent of autoimmune and other disease risk, whereas only 30 percent is associated with genetics. Practitioners may not be able to change genetics, but that can change the patient’s environment, both internally and externally.
To mark this day of significance, we want to spotlight content on environmental exposures and human health and disease, so we rounded up our latest environmental health articles, podcasts, conference recordings, and more. What are you doing to celebrate Earth Day? Let us know in the comments below.
