Generally, it is an age old fact that healthy mind and body are the result of healthy food and proper functioning of all the organs of our body. However, environmental pollution around us has become a health hazard as most of the diseases are related to chemicals in our environment in one way or the other. For example air pollution has a chemical component that interacts with LDL cholesterol and increases the risk of heart attack and stroke among people. People with prolonged exposure to arsenic and dioxins carry a higher risk of diabetes & obesity.
Environmental Medicine is concerned with the interaction between mankind and the environment. More specifically, Environmental Medicine involves the adverse reactions experienced by an individual on exposure to an environmental excitant. Excitants to which individual susceptibility exists are found in air, food, water, and drugs, and are frequently found in the home, work, school, and play environments. Exposures to these agents may adversely affect one or more organ system and this effect is commonly not recognized by individuals and their physicians.
Environmental Medicine offers a sweeping reinterpretation of medical thinking, especially in its approach to many previously unexplained and ineffectively treated chronic diseases. The basis of this view is the simple concept that there are causes for all illnesses, and the obvious but not well accepted fact, that what we eat or are exposed to in our environment, has a direct effect upon our health.
The basic theories of Environmental Medicine include the “total load” concept, individual susceptibility, and adaptation. The “total load” concept postulates that multiple and chronic environmental exposures in a susceptible individual contribute to a breakdown of that person’s homeostatic mechanisms. Rarely is there only one offending agent responsible for causing a diseased condition. Multiple factors co-exist, usually over a prolonged period of time in bringing about the disease process. Individual susceptibility to environmental agents occurs for a variety of reasons including genetic predisposition, gender, nutritional status, level of exposures to offending substances, infectious processes, and emotional and physical stress.
We have compelling data that suggests the clear and present dangers endocrine disruptors, synthetic chemicals that behave like the body’s own hormones or block their normal function, infiltrating our biological systems, to potentially cause disturbing and often irreversible health consequences. The levels of toxicity in our body are the main culprit for most of the diseases in the current generation. Conditions like diabetes, cancer, obesity, asthma, ADHD, Autism, arthritis, infertility, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, heart disease, psoriasis, have been attributed to toxic chemicals which in itself emphasize the importance of detoxification.
The doctor of the future will be one that looks for the root causes of patient illness and proceeds to correct the sources rather than mask symptoms with prescription drugs. With masking of symptoms, the immediate problem may well go away but the cause remains. As an analogy, if the low oil warning light in your car comes on, you have two choices. You can cut the wire that feeds the warning light and the immediate problem goes away, only to manifest very quickly with dire consequences. This is treatment of the symptom. Or you can add more oil so the system operates efficiently. This is treatment of the cause.
There is an urgent need to focus more on the prevention and treatment of chronic conditions, particularly for those where traditional medical treatments do not offer a cure. The root cause or underlying problem has to be effectively addressed to alleviate the condition. Dr. Saxena Centre for Integrative Medicine has adopted chronic disease management programs using novel treatment procedures like detoxification, metabolic weight loss, non toxic cancer therapies(immune modulation, nutraceuticals) External counterpulsation (non surgical bypass), Autism, HBOT & biomedical intervention, anti-aging medicine and ozone therapy for addressing various ailments.

His office is in Hyderabad, where he runs the Integrative medicine He has dedicated his life to understanding environmental induced effects of toxicity on the human being. He believes that one of the biggest culprits negatively affecting our health today is pollution.
The basis of our current medical standard is the treatment of existing disease.
If you have high blood pressure, you can take a pill.
If you have a heart attack, you can get a bypass.
If you have cancer, you can get chemotherapy.
But once the bypass is complete and once the cancer is removed, you are still left with the underlying imbalances that allowed the plaque or the cancer to develop in the first place.
Comprehensive scientific approach to medicine. Optimal health not disease is our primary focus. It side steps traditional medicines fix it when it’s broken and diagnose and treat philosophies Instead
We offer proactive preventive medical care, enhancing health rather than waiting for disease to appear.
