Medical advice on environmental health

Environmental health is an essential component of maintaining our overall well-being. Assessing environmental factors in the home can identify and mitigate risks that affect your health. The following is an introduction to environmental health medical counselling and some of the issues that are discussed during the process.


In the modern era, our homes are surrounded by multiple sources of pollution and radiation that can impact our health in ways we cannot even imagine. Scientific evidence shows that exposure to environmental toxics is associated with a variety of health problems, including cardiovascular, metabolic, respiratory and neuropsychiatric diseases. This exposure has been increasing due to the proliferation of toxic substances in our homes from fabrics, clothing, kitchen utensils, personal and household hygiene products, paints, furniture, electronic devices and lighting systems, among others.

As a longevity and anti-ageing specialist, my goal is to help my patients to reach their birthday in good health and without limitations. As part of my healthy longevity plan, I highly recommend this medical advice because I have found that many patients with a long history of health problems were exposed to numerous toxins that they did not even know about. Environmental health medical advice focuses on identifying and reducing these risks to create a healthier and safer home environment.

Medical advice on the environmental health of your home

What does a medical environmental health screening consist of?

Environmental health medical screening involves a thorough review of your home to identify possible sources of pollution and toxic exposure. This can include aspects of your electrical installation, location of electrical appliances, exposure to wifi, telephone masts, air quality, chemicals used in the home, personal hygiene products, presence of mycotoxins, etc. Factors such as the age of the dwelling, electrical and heating systems, connectivity of electronic devices, and indoor environmental conditions are analysed.

Is it easy to do?

Yes, the process is simple and non-intrusive. As an expert in geoenvironmental health, I carry out the analysis in a very personalised way, assessing the potentially polluting components that you are unaware of and that may be significantly affecting your health now or in the future. Once problems have been identified, I will recommend an improvement plan, which may sometimes require the help of technicians.

What are the benefits?

  • Improved general health: reducing toxic exposure can reduce the incidence of symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia, headaches and general malaise.
  • Healthier environment: creating a home with better air quality and less exposure to radiation and chemicals.
  • Long-term prevention: identifying and mitigating environmental risks helps prevent chronic diseases and improve longevity.
  • Detailed Report: once the counselling session has been completed, I prepare a detailed report with specific recommendations to implement in your home and create a healthier environment.

Who should do it and why?

This type of advice is crucial for anyone who wants to know if they are exposed to environmental toxics on a daily basis and how to reduce them in their home. It is especially recommended for those suffering from fatigue, tiredness, insomnia, headaches, general malaise, apathy, among other symptoms that may be related to a polluted environment. In addition, families with young children, the elderly, and those with pre-existing health conditions can benefit significantly from this assessment.


Aspects to be taken into account:


Type of house, location, age, recent renovations, materials used, insulation, temperature, etc., are some of the aspects to be analysed.


Non-ionising radiation coming from the electrical installation itself, the state of the earthing system, electronic devices, wifi, electrical appliances, among many others, are aspects to be analysed in order to detect possible problems and to be able to establish an improvement plan.

Air quality

Where you live, whether you have industries, petrol stations or golf courses nearby, whether you have a lot of traffic in your area, whether or not you have aeration systems, among others, are aspects that can increase the air pollutants that enter your homes every day.

Having this information allows you to establish a personalised action plan to create cleaner and healthier air for you and your loved ones.

Chemical toxics

There are many sources of toxic chemicals from personal hygiene products, household cleaning products, kitchen utensils, and many more sources you might never have thought of.

Knowing about it and taking action will help to improve your health.

These mycotoxins can come from visible or invisible mold, due to dampness, leaks, etc.

It is important to detect them as they can sometimes be hidden behind cupboards, wallpaper, etc.

We are now aware of the involvement of these toxins in diseases that cause great loss of quality of life.


Importance of environmental toxics reduction

To ensure a healthy and long life, it is imperative that we take steps to reduce the high exposure to invisible and silent toxics in our homes. Today we know that this toxic load is behind many health problems, including those mentioned above. Reducing these toxics is essential to reduce the toxic burden and improve quality of life.

Imagine a home where the air you breathe is healthier, where sleep quality improves and where headaches and fatigue decrease. This is possible with the right guidance.
