classmatesGreening Your School

I recommend your children get a yearly check up that includes a brief discussion of your child’s potential exposures to environmental toxins in their environment at home, school, playground, sports, anywhere they spend a lot of time.   This should also include a focus on your child’s diet/food. These tests are usually a combination of urine and full blood work up that check levels of pesticide exposure; toxins such as cadmium, antimony, lead, mercury, aluminum, phthalates, BPA’s; PCB’s and also includes checking nutritional levels such as vitamin B, vitamin D3, iron, and zinc to make sure your child is optimized for detox/excretion. You can head off potential health problems if you know where your child’s levels are at.  For example, if your child has a low or deficient Vitamin D3 level then your pediatrician can recommend proper supplementation.
