Environmental Medicine Focus
Dr. Aviad Elgez, ND is a licensed and regulated Naturopathic Doctor in Ontario who graduated from The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto with awards of Academic Excellence, and received his undergraduate degree in psychology from York University. Dr. Elgez has also received postgraduate training in Environmental Medicine, which is his primary focus at his private practice in Toronto.
By doing a thorough environmental exposure investigation using clinical history and assessment, blood, urine, and genetic testing, Dr. Elgez focuses on finding the underlying cause for many chronic and difficult to solve medical conditions.
Depending on a person’s genetics along with their specific exposures, common everyday chemicals can affect multiple systems in our body – hormonal, nervous, and immune system. These exposures can have a profound effect on a range of conditions such as autoimmunity, infertility, autism, ADHD, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, chronic fatigue, and cancers – to name a few.
It is by identifying and clearing the environment and the patient of these chemicals that Dr. Elgez sees significant improvements in symptoms and quality of life.
