ISEAI is a thriving, respectful, and collaborative community of medical professionals, researchers, students, and indoor environmental professionals with an interest in environmentally acquired illness (EAI). Non-Professional Supporting membership is extended to the interested public.
Our mission is to restore health to individuals with environmentally acquired illnesses through clinical practice, education, and research. We will accomplish this by raising awareness of environmental causes of inflammatory illnesses and supporting the optimal health of individuals affected by these illnesses.
If you are interested in joining us, Apply Here. Membership offers many benefits and members have access to various website features. These include leading edge information on how environmental exposures cause health problems, and what can be done to solve them.
In addition to the benefits and access to the website features listed on the Join page, members can also submit content for posting on our ISEAI.org Website, Facebook Page, and other social media.
Our Membership categories offer varying levels of benefits and access to website features, and have different membership dues. The categories are based on varied levels of experience, expertise, and interest in environmentally acquired illness (EAI).
The term, “environmental illness” is often used to describe multiple chemical sensitivities. We are concerned with all indoor and outdoor environmental exposures capable of causing, aggravating, or perpetuating chronic illness.
CIRS (Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome) refers to a specific set of symptoms and biomarkers found in patients exposed to water-damaged buildings and excludes consideration of many of the other environmental exposures that can lead to illness. The diagnosis of CIRS also excludes many common symptoms and additional tests relevant to individuals affected by environmental exposures.
Living systems are nonlinear, self organizing and irreducible. In the same way that you can’t understand the nature of time by taking apart a watch, you can’t bring a person back to wellness by treating one problem in isolation from its whole. In allopathic medicine we see this mistake made in multiple ways. One example is repeatedly treating a child’s ear infections with antibiotics. This short sighted approach can lead to multiple GI and metabolic issues later in life for the child, as well as growth of superbugs in the community which are resistant to all antibiotics.
Diplomates of ISEAI are medical professionals who have had training in EAI, have at least 5 years of experience treating individuals with EAI, and are the leaders in this field. Members of ISEAI are medical professionals and indoor environmental professionals with experience and/or interest in EAI. Both Diplomates and Members are listed on Get Help.
The choice of appropriate tests is best determined in consultation with a provider who can conduct a comprehensive clinical evaluation, using a systems biology approach to care. To find a medical health professional, go to Get Help. If you are a health care professional interested in developing expertise in the clinical evaluation of EAI, please consider Membership in ISEAI in order to participate in our thriving professional community and comprehensive education programs.
