Description

- Urine Test

  • Environmental toxins, technically called toxicants, are substances produced endogenously from the human body and which, when absorbed, inhaled, or ingested, can cause acute or chronic toxic overload, which may manifest in a variety of biological organ, tissue, and cellular-level systems.
  • Environmental toxins are cancer-causing chemicals and endocrine disruptors, both human-made and naturally occurring.
  • Susceptibility to toxic overload varies person-to-person, and can be affected by a variety of factors including:
    • Genetics
    • Environment
    • Diet
    • Liver and kidney health
    • Microbiome composition and diversity
    • Age
    • Adiposity
    • Gender
    • Lifestyle
    • Immune system capacity
  • Screening patients with multiple chronic inflammatory symptoms, resistance to weight loss, and signs of excessive total toxic load is important to detecting unknown chemical exposure to daily products, foods, and environment
  • Screening for Environmental Toxins can aid practitioners in uncovering true root causes of toxicity from common environmental sources and provide a clear roadmap to detoxification and healing
  • In order to assess the most comprehensive potential for total toxic load, consider running Environmental Toxins with a Vibrant Heavy Metals, Mycotoxins, or Food Additives panels

FAQ

Is this an antibody test?

No. The Vibrant Environmental Toxins panel is a direct measurement of the levels of 40 environmental toxicants in your urine. This indicates if you are being exposed to any of these substances in greater quantity than considered normal or safe.

Does the Environmental Toxins panel tell me where the toxins are coming from that I am exposed to?

Many of the substances being measured come from multiple possible sources of exposure. The Environmental Toxins panel does not discern source of the toxicant, but can give you explanations of the most common sources, and, working with your healthcare provider, you can rule in or out how you may have been exposed.

What is the difference between the Environmental Toxins panel and the Vibrant Food Additives panel?

The Vibrant Environmental toxins panel measures direct exposure to 40 known environmental toxicants commonly found in industrial, manufacturing, fuel, smelting, and other industries, and which commonly end up in household, cosmetic, pest-control, and other products used by consumers.

The Vibrant Food Additives panel is an antibody test to indicate immune system reactivity and provocation by commonly used additives in foods such as binders, emulsifiers, dyes, sweeteners, and pesticides, to name a few.

In order to assess the full spectrum of possible sources of immune reactivity and toxicity, we recommend combining these tests together.
