Why ISEAI?

It is no secret that many patients today are sicker and their illnesses are more complex than they were even 20 years ago. Even so, doctors are expected to diagnose and treat patients in less time and with more restrictions. Medical appointments are sometimes so brief that patients can present only one or two complaints during a visit. Few doctors have the time or ability to look at a patient’s whole health picture. Our chronically ill patients are sick, exhausted, in pain, anxious, not sleeping, digesting, or thinking properly.  They have potentially been misdiagnosed or told their problems were “in their heads.” ISEAI aims to help the medical community to better serve these patients.

ISEAI Can Help

If you’re frustrated by the challenges of caring for complex patients or are unsure how to coordinate the different treatment approaches for environmental toxins, persistent infections such as Lyme disease, and patients’ symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, pain, and intestinal problems, ISEAI can help.

The ISEAI community of collaborative, open-minded clinicians, scientists, and indoor environmental professionals will provide tools to help you optimize your own blueprint for managing complex patients with environmentally acquired illness (EAI). We offer membership categories and conferences for everyone, including students and the interested public.

I stand in service to ISEAI, because I believe that the healthcare profession can do better when it comes to assisting people suffering from complex chronic illness; and ISEAI is positioned to do just that. We are a thriving community of  well intentioned and well educated physicians who are at the ready to facilitate a sea change in the larger medical paradigm- and I couldn’t be more excited about it!

Lauren Tessier, ND - ISEAI President, Life After Mold

I believe in ISEAI, because I believe in those who make up ISEAI. Our members are driven to help their patients. Our leaders are driven to help increase all of our knowledge and awareness, to help our respective patients. ISEAI is made up of people who are willing to stand in the gap for those who are often marginalized by friends, family, and even those in the medical community. That’s worth my time, and my energy. These are the people I want on my team, those I want to align myself with… those I want to call my professional family. I’m proud to stand with those who make up ISEAI.

Mark Su, MD - ISEAI Vice President, Personal Care Physicians of Greater Newburyport

“I joined ISEAI to be a part of the movement of giving a voice to patients who have chronic complex illnesses and who are often marginalized by mainstream medicine. ISEAI is a community of practitioners who motivates each other to continue to learn and grow by pushing the envelope of medicine. It’s an added bonus that each ISEAI member who I have interacted with is inspirational! I am honored to serve on the board of directors and to be able to advocate for the inclusion of environmentally acquired illnesses in mainstream medicine.”

Kellyn Milani, ND - ISEAI Secretary, Remedy Health

ISEAI is a community of like-minded professionals seeking to better understand the complexities of chronic illness and low-dose environmental-exposure concerns. As an IEP, I am grateful to find myself surrounded by colleagues who also understand yet, at times, struggle with the diversity of environments and conditions surrounding our clients. ISEAI is a place where examining minds are welcome. A place to learn. A place where ideas or assumptions can be respectfully challenged, even tested, for the good of service to our community.
