Part 4 - We take a deeper look into how toxins affect the immune system this week. Dr. Crinnion says immunotoxicity is usually the first problem that shows up in a person’s history, typically manifesting itself as allergies or asthma. Do you know of anyone, especially adults, that are suddenly experiencing allergy problems?
How about chemical reactivity from something as innocent as walking down the soap isle in the store? Help! Get me out of here, I can’t breathe! Chemical sensitivities are a common finding in people with immunotoxicity present. Some people have chronic infections they can’t shake from a damaged immune system and don’t even realize it.
Dr. Crinnion helps us understand how this is happening in this week’s podcast and reminds us to protect ourselves from chemical exposure.

Walter J. Crinnion, ND, received his Bachelors of Science degree in Biology from the University of San Francisco in 1975. He received his degree in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University, where he was a member of the first graduating class, and Dr. Crinnion is now considered one of the leading experts on environmental medicine and toxicology. After graduating, Dr. Crinnion spent 20 years practicing in Seattle, helping treat patients with chronic conditions through diet and nutrition. Dr. Crinnion discovered that most of the chronic health complaints he treated were rooted in toxicity, and began to expand his practice to include environmental medicine. After 20 years of practice, Dr. Crinnion felt led to teach other practitioners about toxicity and health. Today, he is the Chair of the Department of Environmental Medicine at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona.
