Toxic – Heal Your Body by Neil Nathan MD

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

Although this line was used to describe the French Revolution, it fits perfectly into our modern life.

We are seeing an epidemic of diabetes, fibromyalgia, immune illnesses, environmental illness and Lyme disease. These are creating challenges that our current healthcare system is ill-equipped to deal with. Not because of lack of effective treatments. But rather because of a dismal lack of physician awareness and education.

This leaves so many people having to be medical detectives, to learn how to solve the puzzle of their own health conditions. The Internet provides an overwhelming amount of information, with a little bit of it even being accurate. But even for this, there is precious little perspective being given.

Now there is a book that can save you thousands of hours of investigative work. It will also help you reclaim your health and vitality!

I have long respected Dr. Neil Nathan’s ability to take incredibly complex areas and protocols from numerous different physicians, develop a comprehensive understanding of them, and then put them into a simple organized form that can be applied by both people with health conditions and physicians. I have learned an enormous amount from him.

In his newest book, he does this comprehensively. He organizes and simplifies toxicity, Lyme disease, multiple chemical sensitivities, and literally dozens of different health topics. And he does this in a way that can help you get well.

Know how you call tech support, and the first thing they do is ask you to reboot your computer? That is kind of what it is like with your body.

To give an example of this, our foundation funded a study using an acupressure technique called NAET to “reboot” the immune system. 23 of the 30 children were back in regular school after one year as opposed to 0 of the 30 in the untreated control group. So, this concept is very powerful for humans as well. In his book, as part of rebooting your nervous system, Dr. Nathan even discusses the importance of simply “feeling safe.”

In Toxic: Heal Your Body, Dr. Nathan teaches you how to reboot each of your key systems. This also includes your immune system, endocrine system, gut, and numerous others.

Got multiple chemical sensitivities? This book will help. Sensitive to everything? This book will help!

Thyroid, adrenal, or other hormonal deficiencies? Horrible digestive problems? Weight gain? Simply feeling toxic? Suffering from illnesses of modern life? All of this is integrated in this incredible new book.

An added bonus? He also teaches you how to reboot your emotions and your soul. Remarkable work for a very focused science-based researcher, who also was blessed with a loving heart and a great soul.

Dr. Nathan organizes the complex work of countless researchers, and makes it simple. This way you can understand and apply the information –NOW!

TOXIC Heal Your Body from Mold Toxicity, Lyme Disease, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and Chronic Environmental Illnesses


Millions of people are suffering from chronic illnesses that, unbeknownst to them, are caused by exposure to mold, Lyme disease, other infectious agents, and other environmental toxins. Millions. Because the symptoms of these illnesses are so varied and unusual, many of these individuals have sought medical care only to be dismissed, as if what they are experiencing is “in their head.” Many (if not most) have tried to tough it out and continue to function without hope of improvement. Unfortunately, their illnesses are very real. Toxic is a book of hope for these individuals, their loved ones, and the physicians who provide their care. Over many years of helping thousands of patients recover their health (even after their previous doctors had given up on them), Dr. Neil Nathan has come to understand some of the most common causes for these debilitating illnesses, which allows for the utilization of more precise and effective forms of treatment.
The goal of this book is to shed light on these complex illnesses so that suffering patients and their families can get the help they so desperately need. In the book, you will find:

  • Information about how extreme sensitivity and toxicity develop in the body, how they differ, and how they often overlap
  • Detailed descriptions of each of the four major causes of hypersensitivity and toxicity: mold, Bartonella (a co-infection of Lyme disease), mast cell activation, and porphyria and carbon monoxide poisoning
  • An outline of the cell danger response, a revolutionary model developed by Dr. Robert Naviaux that explains how the body essentially gets “stuck” fighting a threat even after the danger has passed
  • A system-by-system plan for “rebooting” the body to break the cycle of illness and allow healing to begin
  • Information about coping with stress and embracing an emotional and/or spiritual awakening on a path to wellness

Dr. Nathan’s wisdom, clinical acumen, kindness, compassion, careful listening to his patients, and lifetime of experience have sparked medical insights that have the power to inspire a new generation of physicians.”

          Several newsletters ago, I mentioned that the new organization, ISEAI (International Society for Environmentally Acquired Illness) was getting off the ground and promises to be one of the premier groups that has, as its mission, educating health care providers and certifying them in the understanding of the vital subject of chronic inflammatory illness. As you
all know, this includes mold toxicity, chronic Lyme disease (with coinfections), chronic viral infections and other chronic bacterial and parasitic infections, and toxicity from heavy metals and environmental toxins. It is estimated that 10-20 million Americans are currently suffering from some form of these illnesses, most of whom are unaware that these illnesses even exist or how to approach them.
The ISEAI website opened in March ( and we have over 50 members signed up already. Membership is open to everyone, at levels that include Diplomates, Full members, Student Members & Affiliate Members. Please go to the ISEAI website to see the benefits of each form of membership. We have a FaceBook presence as well, so please LIKE us
and SHARE.
For those of you who are physicians, please consider becomingeither a Full or Diplomate member, which would entitle you to discounts at our upcoming annual symposium next May (see below) and access to the growing library we maintain on all things related to these inflammatory processes, and access to dialogs with other ISEAI members to answer questions as they arise and much more.
For those of you who are not health care providers, we are a fledgling organization with very little funding, and would really appreciate your $35 membership which would give you access to our library, journal and newsletters.
Our first symposium will be held at the beautiful Civana resort just outside Phoenix, May 3-5th, 2019. For those interested in certification, this will be one important step in that process. We already have commitments for a fabulous line-up a speakers, including Dr. Robert Naviaux, Dr. Joseph Brewer, Dr. Joseph Burrascano, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, Dr. Patricia Kane,
Dr. Michael Gray, Dr. Sonia Rapaport, Dr. Mary Ackerley, and yours truly, among others.

Just a few of the Reviews from

 on August 10, 2016
WOW! As a CFS and Fibromyalgia specialist and author, I know many of the key experts in the field. Dr Nathan is one of the very best. He has integrated the very complex mold work of Dr Ritchie Shoemaker, and distilled it down to an easy to read and understand approach that gives you what you need to get started now. Loved the book so much, I will be beginning his protocol in several of my patients soon. I highly recommend this book for both health practitioners as well as anyone who has a poorly understood illness. Outstanding!!!


on July 27, 2016

“Mold & Mycotoxins: Current Evaluation and Treatment 2016” is a unique opportunity to learn about the evaluation and treatment of mold illness from one of the top doctors in the world with a focus on complex, chronic illnesses.

The author has been one of my personal heroes for years; not only for his knowledge but also for his compassion and commitment to seeking answers to improve people’s lives. The book allows the reader to see how Dr. Nathan approaches recovering health in some of his most difficult cases.

I was anticipating this book for months, and it did not disappoint. If you have experienced mold illness, this book is a must-read. If you have Lyme disease or another chronic condition, the book is still a must-read as mold is all too commonly a component of many complex conditions. Ask your doctor to read it too as it will only help them in caring for their patients.

The strategies outlined in this book are in large part responsible for my own health recovery from both Lyme disease and mold illness. Christmas has arrived early this year with the gift of Dr. Nathan’s new book!


Light in the Darkness

on August 1, 2016

Having mold illness, Lyme, and co-infections, is nothing short of trying to navigate life in a pitch black maze—every day and every night. As a toxic and sensitive patient, recovering under Dr. Nathan’s care, I’m grateful for the light shed by this book, his other publications, his program “Cutting Edge of Health and Wellness”, and his practice.

This book details current information needed by health care professionals. It is essential education for anyone who has mold illness, Lyme, or both. It is a reassuring resource for patients needing clarification and review. It is also a clear and succinct resource for a sufferer to refer to interested and/or doubtful friends and family.

Congratulations to Dr. Nathan and the few doctors willing to do all they can. Rather than waiting for more information and less controversy in this area of desperate need, (thereby sacrificing sufferers), they are courageously stepping up. In his book, Dr. Nathan clearly shows the ways he is seeking and refining the help he is offering. It is another step toward ending this darkness.

Our research paper with Dr. Robert Naviaux is now available:

Metabolic Features of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Naviaux RK, et al. PNAS MS# 2016-07571RR, August 31, 2016


             This is a ground-breaking research publication which clearly demonstrates that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME is a biochemical illness (NOT psychosomatic) in which we can clearly measure specific imbalances from the blood of CFS patients. These imbalances differ between men and women, but the specifics of these results give great hope that we now have a test which can delineate CFS patients. This is the first in an anticipated series of research papers designed to clarify the chemistry of a wide variety of chronic illnesses: how they may be similar, and different. The next research project, already underway, with Dr. Paul Chaney’s CFS patients should be completed soon.
