Identify Environmental Toxicity Levels
30-Minute Health Coaching Call Included

Do you feel like you are struggling to keep up with daily life, run down or simply not quite yourself? Skin rashes, brain fog, poor sleep and weakened immunity are just some of the common signs of years of environmental toxicity exposure from chemicals prevalent in today's world. With well over 77,000 man made chemicals infiltrating our environment, it's no longer a question of whether or not your body is harboring toxins, but rather how many. This Environmental Toxicity Test will show you your "Total Toxic Load" so you can assess where you're at now and help you make the best decisions about your health going forward.

Know Your Toxic Load

What Is Measured

Environmental Pollutants

Every day, we are exposed to hundreds of toxic chemicals through products like pharmaceuticals, pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, packaged foods, household products, and environmental pollutants in water, food and air.

  • Phthalates may be the most widespread group of toxins in our environment, commonly found in many bath and beauty products, cosmetics, perfumes, oral pharmaceuticals, insect repellents, adhesives, inks, and varnishes

  • Vinyl Chloride: An intermediate in the synthesis of several commercial chemicals, including polyvinyl chloride (PVC).

  • Benzene: An extremely toxic chemical that is mutagenic and carcinogenic that is widespread in the environment. Benzene is a by-product of all types of industrial processes and combustion, including motor vehicle exhaust and cigarette smoke, and is released by out gassing from synthetic materials

  • Pyrethrins: Widely used as insecticides. Exposure during pregnancy doubles the likelihood of Autism

  • Xylenes (dimethylbenzenes): Found in common products such as paints, lacquers, pesticides, cleaning fluids, fuel and exhaust fumes, perfumes and insect repellents

  • Styrene/Ethyl benzene: Used in the manufacturing of plastics, in building materials, and is found in car exhaust fumes

  • Organophosphates: Organophosphates are one of the most toxic groups of substances in the world, primarily found in pesticide formulations

  • MTBE and ETBE: gasoline additives from exposure to groundwater contamination, inhalation or skin exposure to gasoline or exhaust fumes

  • 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic Acid (2-,4-D): A very common herbicide, most commonly used in agriculture on genetically modified foods, and as a weed killer for lawns

  • Diphenyl Phosphate: A metabolite of the organophosphate flame retardant triphenyl phosphate (TPHP), which is used in plastics, electronic equipment, nail polish and resins

  • Acrylamide: Used in many industrial processes such as plastics, food packaging, cosmetics, dyes, and treatment of drinking water. Food and cigarette smoke are also two major sources of exposure. Acrylamide has been found in foods like potato chips and French fries

  • Perchlorate: used in the production of rocket fuel, missiles, fireworks, flares, explosives, fertilizers, bleach and studies show it is often found in water supplies and many food sources

  • 1,3 butadiene: A chemical made from the processing of petroleum. It is often a colorless gas with a mild gasoline-like odor. Most of this chemical is used in the production of synthetic rubber

  • Propylene oxide: This chemical is used in the production of plastics and is used as a fumigant. It is used to make polyester resins for textile and construction industries. It is also used in the preparation of lubricants, surfactants, and oil demulsifiers. It has also been used as a food additive, an herbicide, a microbicide, an insecticide, a fungicide, and a miticide

  • 1-bromopropane: 1-bromopropane is an organic solvent used for metal cleaning, foam gluing, and dry cleaning

  • Ethylene oxide: Used in many different industries including agrochemicals detergents, pharmaceuticals, and personal care products. Ethylene oxide is also used as a sterilizing agent on rubber, plastics, and electronics.

  • Acrylonitrile: Used in the production of acrylic fibers, resins, and rubber. Use of any of these products could lead to exposure to acrylonitrile. Smoking tobacco and cigarettes is another potential exposure

  • Acrolein: Commonly used as an herbicide to control submersed and floating weeds and algae in irrigation canals. Humans are exposed orally via fried foods, alcoholic beverages and water), respiratory (cigarette smoke and automobile exhaust) and topically.

Tiglylglycine (TG)

Tiglylglycine (TG) is one of the most specific markers for mitochondrial disorders.

Tiglylglycine (TG) is a marker for mitochondrial disorders resulting from mutations of mitochondrial DNA, which can manifest from exposure to toxic chemicals, infections, inflammation, and nutritional deficiencies.

Metabolites of Pollutants

A pollutant is a substance introduced into the environment that has an adverse effect upon a natural resource. Certain pollutants may be disintegrated via the biological metabolism of microorganisms (biodegradation) creating additional metabolites.

  • 2-3-4 Methylhippuric Acid (2,-3-,4-MHA)

  • N-acetyl phenyl cysteine (NAP)

  • Phenylglyoxylic Acid (PGO)

  • 2-Hydroxyisobutyric Acid (2HIB)

  • Monoethylphthalate (MEP) - Diethylphthalates

  • Dimethylphosphate (DMP) & Diethylphosphate (DEP)

  • 3-Phenoxybenzoic Acid (3PBA)

  • 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic Acid (2-,4-D)

  • Tiglylglycine (TG)

  • N-acetyl-S-(2-carbamoylethyl)cysteine (NAE)

  • Diphenyl Phosphate

  • Perchlorate

  • N-acetyl(3,4-dihydroxybutyl)cysteine (NADB)

  • N-acetyl(2-hydroxypropyl)cysteine (NAHP)

  • N-acetyl(propyl)cysteine (NAPR)

  • 2-hydroxyethyl mercapturic (HEMA)

  • N-acetyl (2-cyanoethyl) cysteine (NACE)

  • N-acetyl-S-(3-hydroxypropyl)-L-cysteine (3-HPMA)
