“I feel stupid, fat, and tired,” is a recurring theme with many of our new patients at Seasons. Many factors play a role in this syndrome.

One common but overlooked contributor is environmental toxins. A new study by the Environmental Working Group ( found over 48 toxic chemicals in women’s blood and urine. Besides toxic metals, chemicals such as pesticides, BPA, phthalates, etc. were discovered in large amounts.

Some of the many consequences of this exposure include hormonal disregulation, miscarriages, diabetes, slower metabolism, and increased cancer rates.

At Seasons, we can identify the toxins and help your body become well again. Give your body some extra TLC this summer by detoxing – it’s much better than fad diets and medications for symptoms!
