Biotransformation Pathways & Toxic Exposures

We have learned a great deal in recent years about how toxicants and toxins affect us, where they originate, and how to improve our ability to detoxify. Understanding toxicity and taking practical steps to improve biotransformation and elimination of toxicants are essential and critical pieces in any integrative approach to a patient’s health and well-being.

Explore more below about the biochemistry and genetics of biotransformation pathways, connections of organ system dysfunctions to potential toxic exposures, available laboratory evaluations useful in working up a toxin-exposed patient, and various treatment approaches.

This module will review the foundational biochemistry and genetics of biotransformation pathways, connect organ system dysfunctions to potential toxic exposures, and detail the available laboratory evaluations useful in assessing both the toxic load and physiologic responses to toxicant and toxin exposures. This program also uses a case-based, integrated approach to effectively deliver tools necessary for clinicians to diagnose and treat the toxic component of their patients’ total health pictures.
