25 Symptoms of Environmental Toxicity -- Jill Carnahan, MD

By Jill Carnahan, MD, ABFM, ABIHM, IFMCP

Over the years I've noticed there are some symptoms that are more commonly seen in patients with environmental toxicity. If someone comes into my office with a few of any of the following symptoms I immediately start checking for sources of toxins and for ways to reduce their overall toxic burden.

Here are 25 symptoms of environmental toxicity:

1. Fatigue
2. Muscle aches
3. Joint pain
4. Sinus congestion
5. Postnasal drip
6. Headaches
7. Gas/Bloating
8. Constipation
9. Diarrhea
10. Foul-smelling stools
11. Heartburn
12. Insomnia
13. Difficulty concentrating
14. Food cravings
15. Water retention
16. Trouble losing weight
17. Rashes
18. Skin problems
19. Eczema
20. Psoriasis
21. Acne
22. Canker sores
23. Dark circles under the eyes
24. Premenstrual syndrome
25. Bad breath

In addition to these symptoms there are a few conditions that are major red flags to me. These include:

> Immune system dysfunction
> Chronic infection
> Autoimmune diseases
> Endocrine disorders
> Multiple chemical sensitivity
> Infertility
> Adverse reactions to medications
> Allergies and asthma
> Obvious industrial or agricultural exposure
> Poor caffeine tolerance

So how do you reduce your toxic load? My next article will share my recommendations for methods of detoxification support.
