Part 2 - This is the second installment of my conversation with Dr. Walter Crinnion on toxicity and the environment. He is a wellspring of information on this subject, and he answers the question about the need for testing in this week’s podcast. After all, if we all have toxins present in our bodies, why test? I was also curious to know if there were certain health or living situations in which he thought one should be tested. Look for the link below to hear what he had to say.
In my next installment, Dr. Crinnion discusses how toxins affect the mitochondria and the health problems associated with toxin/mitochondrial interaction. Stay tuned…
Part 1 - Why is it important to understand total toxic body burden?

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.
