The Perfect Storm: 20th century super chemicals have greater access to our body with the help of 21st century electromagnetic radiation.
August 7, 2013
Hosted by Shanhong Lu, MD PhD
Join Dr. Lu and Dr. Elizabeth Plourde Ph.D a Clinical Laboratory Scientist with a background in cancer and DNA testing. She is a North American Menopause Society Certified Menopause Practitioner. as well as an Advisory Board Member of the American Anti-Cancer Institute. Her latest research has identified the electromagnetic fields (EMF) are creating havoc on our biochemistry. Smart meters that are wirelessly transmitting utility usage information 24 hours a day, have the percentage of the population developing electromagnetic sensitivity (EMS) symptoms. Since the effects of the radiation are cumulative, there has been an upsurge in people who are experiencing EMS symptoms such as: headaches, insomnia, heart palpitations, skin rashes/itching, irritability, fatigue, seizures, ADHD, blood sugar changes, dizziness/balance problems, memory problems, hormonal balance changes, ringing in the ears, stabbing pains, and shortness of breath. Unfortunately another ever increasing pollution in the modern society-Man made chemicals have much easier access to our inner peaceful environment as one of the most produced and used by people today is nothing less familiar than sunscreen chemicals as Dr. Plourde will speak about they are either potent hormones, or tiny metal oxides that are capable of causing abnormal cell division. The incidence of melanoma and basal and squamous cell skin cancers have been increasing since sunscreens were introduced in the mid 1970s, proving that rather than protect they leave us open to developing the cancers. Sharing some of the newest research, Dr. Lu will interview Dr. Plourde and go over some proactive strategies on how to live in vibrant life in the ever challenging environment.

Genes raise the gun and environmental factors pull the trigger. These are turbulent times in human history: we live in a time of revolutionary changes, advances, insights, and discoveries. We also live in a time of unprecedented stress and a multitude of environmental alterations, both of which influence the way our physical, mental, and emotional body grow and age. As a result, our key systems, including the neuroendocrine, immune, digestive, cardiovascular, and metabolic systems, are all enduring less than optimal functionality. Chronic diseases are becoming the norm of our society. Dr. Lu will discuss in lay terms how stress and toxins influence the function of the whole body, mechanisms our body has adapted to meet the demands of this new environment, and essential strategies that can save our lives and help our bodies return to vibrant living. Once we discover the root sources of disease and health, we can follow a simple path towards abundant health, peace, and clarity.
