Neil Nathan, MD has been practicing medicine for 46 years, and has been Board Certified in Family Practice and Pain Management and is a Founding Diplomate of the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine, and a Founding Diplomate of ISEAI (International Society for Environmentally Acquired Illness) for which he is currently on the Executive Board.. With Dr. Rich van Konynenburg he did the ground-breaking clinical research which demonstrated the importance of methylation chemistry in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and he has recently completed a study with Dr. Robert Naviaux on the metabolomics of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. He has written several books, including his newest Toxic: Heal Your Body from Mold Toxicity, Lyme Disease, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, and Chronic Environmental Illness. He has hosted an internationally syndicated radio program on Voice America called The Cutting Edge of Health and Wellness Today. He has been working to bring an awareness that mold toxicity is a major contributing factor for patients with chronic illness and lectures internationally on this subject.
Dr. Nathan has been treating chronic complex medical illnesses for over 25 years, and Lyme disease for the past 15 years. As his practice has evolved, he finds himself increasingly treating the patients who have become so sensitive and toxic that they can no longer tolerate their usual treatments, and his major current interest is in finding unique ways of helping them to recover. He is increasingly aware that polyvagal dysfunction and limbic dysfunction are common in our chronically inflamed patients and need to be addressed early in the course of treatment.
