Key Takeaways:

  • What role does environmental toxicity play in autism and many chronic conditions experienced by adults as well?
  • What does the GPL-TOX show in terms of environmental toxins such as chemicals and pesticides?
  • How commonly is glyphosate found in the GPL Glyphosate test?
  • What is tiglylglycine and what is the connection to mitochondrial issues?
  • What is the role of mycotoxins in various health conditions and what symptoms might mycotoxins create?
  • What is the role of colonization of the sinuses, lungs, and gut with fungal/mold organisms in terms of ongoing mycotoxin exposure?
  • Does the MYCOTOX urine collection need to be provoked to get a sensitive result?
  • Is there a way to differentiate a positive mycotoxin test in terms of the source of the exposure being environmental as opposed to being from consumed food products?
  • What are some of the treatment approaches that appear promising both for environmental chemicals and mycotoxins?
