The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates unintentional poisonings kill an estimated 355,000 people globally each year. In some settings, toxic chemicals may be emitted directly to soil, air, and water – from industrial processes, and agricultural practices that cannot be sustained – at levels or rates well in excess of those tolerable to human health.
We are constantly exposed to hundreds of toxic chemicals through products like pharmaceuticals, water, pesticides, packaged foods, household products, and environmental pollution. As our exposure to chemical-laden products and to toxic chemicals increases, we have seen a dramatic acceleration rate in chronic illnesses like cancer, heart disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, chemical sensitivity, autism spectrum disorders, ADD/AD(H)D, autoimmune disorders, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. With the Great Plains Lab Toxicity Panel, patients are able to test for over 170 types of toxins in your body.
Dr. Kurt Woeller states, “Chemical and Environmental toxins can have a very serious long term, lasting effect on overall health and wellbeing. We are exposed to chemical and environmental toxins constantly—in water, food, and even in homes or at work. Vegetables are usually sprayed with herbicides and pesticides while they grow, and those chemicals are absorbed when the vegetables are eaten. Processed foods are loaded with chemicals. Living close to a factory that emits smoke or waste can have a major negative effect. And of course, molds in the home can degrade health in a hurry. The GPL-TOX test measures 172 toxic chemicals in the body, allowing the patient to see what chemicals are most adversely affecting their health. It’s an easy test to do at home, and the information it provides is critical to understanding and improving health.”
The response from patients utilizing the Toxicity Panel has been very favorable. Patient Tracy Owens states, “I lead a very healthy lifestyle. I exercise daily, I don’t eat processed foods, and do everything possible to eat clean, organically grown foods. As I began to head toward middle age, I noticed my energy level declining and my memory beginning to fail me a little. I ordered the GPL-TOX screen and found that my exposure levels to certain chemicals were off the charts. I didn’t realize that I was absorbing high levels of Styrene, likely from the packaging my food came in. Styrene can cause concentration problems, muscle weakness and fatigue—all issues I was having. Now that I know what I’m dealing with, I’m working to improve my health. I highly recommend the GPL-TOX screen.”
Great Plains Laboratories’ Toxicity Panel is a toxic non-metal chemical profile that screens for the presence of 172 different toxic chemicals including organophosphate pesticides, phthalates, benzene, xylene, vinyl chloride, pyrethroid insecticides, acrylamide, perchlorate, diphenyl phosphate, ethylene oxide, acrylonitrile, and more. This profile also includes Tiglyglycine (TG), a marker for mitochondrial disorders resulting from mutations of mitochondrial DNA. These mutations can be caused by exposure to toxic chemicals, infections, inflammation, and nutritional deficiencies. Lab results, a Doctor’s review of test results, and a Doctor’s recommendation for a course of action based on your personalized results are all included in the Great Plains Lab Toxicity Panel.
Labs Tests Plus was created in order for patients to have access to a plethora of tests not typically utilized by mainstream clinicians. This website offers Doctor reviewed, Specialty Lab tests sent direct to the patient, without a Doctor’s visit.
