Learn how to avoid, treat toxic exposures at the April 14 Green Building Lecture
As a once vibrant 19-year-old athlete, Chelsea suddenly became overwhelmed with fatigue, dizziness, muscle aches and depression. Five years of doctors’ appointments, questions, misdiagnoses and frustration ensued.
A chance encounter not long ago led Chelsea to a doctor who specialized in health issues caused by environmental factors. Half reluctant, half hopeful, Chelsea agreed to meet with yet another practioner – Dr. Donese Worden. After hours of questions, conversations and reviewing tests, Dr. Worden found the cause of Chelsea’s maladies – high levels of toxic metal and extreme food allergies. Chelsea’s exposure to the toxic metal likely occurred in the family’s home. Thanks to a variety of treatments, Chelsea is now well on her way to being well.
Chelsea agreed to tell her story, but preferred not to use her last name.
Through Scottsdale’s Green Building Program lecture series, you can learn strategies for minimizing and treating toxic exposure, especially indoor pollutants. The free program will be from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 14, at Appaloosa Library, 7377 E. Silverstone Drive, Scottsdale. Dr. Worden and the city’s Green Building Program Manager, Anthony Floyd, will be the guest speakers.
The lectures are open to the public. RSVPs are not needed. For more information, call (480) 312-3111 or visit www.ScottsdaleAZ.gov/greenbuilding/lectures.
