Clinical Environmental Medicine

Clinical Environmental Medicine is a discipline focusing on diagnosing and treating illnesses caused by environmental factors.
In this case, the relevant environmental factors are physical, chemical, biological and psychological.
Illnesses falling in this category are considered to be the result of a complex interaction between "low-dose”, multi-factor environmental aggression, suffered over a long period of time and each patient’s individual sensitivity, which depends on their genes and any eventual dysfunctions they might have in their immune, endocrine, and enzyme systems.
