Membership Ethics Policy

The ISEAI Membership Ethics Policy is based on and complementary to the high standard of medicine expected of its Members and Diplomates. Members who are health care professionals must adhere to the following ethical standards. A member who violates these standards may be counseled or expelled from ISEAI.

Each ISEAI health provider must:

  1. Seek to develop and maintain core competencies in environmentally acquired illness (EAI) and seek to maintain a high level of professional qualification through continuous education, as EAI is an evolving field of expertise.
  2. Practice and promote evidence-based medicine in EAI. Members must not claim results or outcomes unsupported by documented, verifiable evidence. When members have an opinion regarding treatment that is based on personal or financial ties rather than clinical judgment, they nevertheless must share alternative perspectives and treatment options with patients.
  3. Comply with all applicable laws and regulations governing their individual scope of practice.
  4. Conduct themselves honestly, fairly, and in good faith, and treat patients and other healthcare professionals with respect.
  5. Uphold these standards of professionalism. A member who knows that another ISEAI member has engaged in conduct that violates these standards or otherwise could cause harm to patients must report this to an officer of the ISEAI board of directors.
  6. Present any research findings with complete honesty and accuracy, and, if conducting research, shall behave ethically towards human subjects. Members who publish research must disclose any conflicts of interest that are arguably relevant to the work published.
  7. If prescribing or recommending a product or service (other than direct medical care) from which they would profit, provide patients with full and complete disclosure, orally and in writing, of their financial interest in the product or service.
  8. Seek to provide a portion of services to patients who cannot afford to pay a provider’s usual fees.

Acceptable Use Policy – ISEAI Logo, Documents & Resources

Acceptable Use of the ISEAI Logo
  • Full and Diplomate professional members of ISEAI in good standing are welcomed to use and display the ISEAI logo among their “professional memberships” or “professional associations” or similar section on your website bio page, LinkedIn, and elsewhere.
  • The ISEAI logo may be used in conjunction with “professional education” or “continuing education” if the member professional has personally registered, attended and engaged significantly in ISEAI clinical education through at least one full annual conference event.
  • The logo should be used in a way that is specific to the member professional (such as on their LinkedIn or bio page on website) but not in a way that suggests the whole firm or practice is a member of ISEAI, unless 100% of professionals in the practice are, in fact, full members of ISEAI, in good standing, and remain so at all times that the logo is displayed in this way.
  • At this time, ISEAI does not not yet offer ‘certification’ so please avoid using the ISEAI logo in conjunction with ‘certifications.’
  • ISEAI membership and the ISEAI logo should not be used in a location or way that implies that ISEAI ‘endorses’ any particular practice, opinion, position, etc, unless the opinion is a published consensus position of ISEAI (such as ERMI Consensus Statement), in which case the writer or speaker should always link back to the original source of the position.  Avoid summarizing without citation.
  • The policy regarding use of the ISEAI logo may be amended with or without notice.
Acceptable Use of ISEAI Documents & Resources
  • Documents and resources are available for personal and professional use by active full members of ISEAI who are in good standing.
  • Any document-specific restriction (such as: ‘for use by licensed medical professionals only’ or ‘for ISEAI members only’ or ‘requires permission for reproduction’) should be abided.
  • As positions may be updated through time based on evolving professional knowledge and consensus, members should not link to archived documents or positions.  Always linking to the original source at the ISEAI website will prevent this problem from occurring.
  • Consensus statements and documents will always be updated to the most current version on the ISEAI website (whether on the public portion of the website, or in the member dashboard area).
  • For the above reason, both current and former members of ISEAI should avoid stating archived positions or documents of ISEAI without researching and citing the most updated version of any particular ISEAI consensus statement or document.
  • ISEAI documents and resources possessed by a member that are not currently posted publicly on the ISEAI website may continue to personally use said resource after a professional’s membership lapses, but should never be transmitted/shared with others (including colleagues or patients) after the membership ends.  The reason for this is that current members have access to the most updated version of each resource.
  • The policy regarding use of ISEAI documents and resources may be amended with or without notice.
