2 Module Online Short Course

Dr Joseph Pizzorno has recently said “Toxicity is the primary driver of disease” and “Toxicity is the new normal”.

Joe has been conducting some very large research projects and uses a mathematical analysis of the data to find associations. He has come up with some very good data on disease causation.

Some of his findings indicate that:

  • 50% of diabetes is due to phthalates, arsenic and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons
  • Almost 45% of Alzheimer’s is due to DDT
  • Arsenic is responsible for 31% of prostate cancer
  • Over 40% of gout in women is arsenic related
  • PCBs have a high association with heart attacks

As our increasingly toxic world creates problems with our metabolism, we need to keep up. Our patient pictures are becoming more complex and their conditions are becoming more difficult to unravel. This course will help us make more sense of what we’re seeing, and what to do about it.

Joe Pizzorno and Wendy Ellis have prepared a short course of two webinars on the major chemicals causing metabolic problems. The show us how to recognise the sources, prevent exposure and how to remove them.


Dr Joseph Pizzorno ND is the founding President of Bastyr University. A naturopathic physician, educator, researcher and expert spokesman, he is Editor-in-Chief of Integrative Medicine: A Clinicians Journal. He was appointed by President Clinton in December 2000 to the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Policy and by President Bush’s administration in 2002 to the Medicare Coverage Advisory Committee.

Dr Wendy Ellis ND is a naturopathic physician with a specialty in endocrine dysfunction, gastrointestinal issues and autoimmune disease. She was the clinic director of Tahoma Clinic Seattle, and maintained her practice in the Seattle area for 12 years.

You can read more about your presenters below.


  1. Which toxic chemicals we need to be most alert for
  2. How these chemicals damage metabolism and what the consequences of exposure are
  3. What are the most common sources of endocrine disruptors
  4. Which chemicals are contributing to the obesity epidemic
  5. How chemicals disrupt fat metabolism
  6. The many influences that toxins have on our endocrine function


  • Clear presentations explaining exactly how to use essential oil containing plants in clinical practice
  • A PDF of all presentation slides
  • Links to all referenced research papers and useful clinical handouts
  • Access to the live presentations where you can ask questions
  • Access to the recordings


Each session is 90 minutes: 75 minutes presentation + 15 minutes Q&A

WEBINAR ONE: Obesogens, Insulin Resistance and Obesity

Presenter: Wendy Ellis

  1. Basics of insulin resistance including insulin resistance as an early marker of metabolic and cardiovascular disease
  2. Effects of obesogens on insulin resistance
  3. Genetics and bio-markers associated with insulin resistance
  4. Adipose tissue associated with IR and the inflammatory mediators produced
  5. Secondary health effects of the associated inflammation
  6. Approach to treatment

WEBINAR TWO: Primary Drivers of Disease

Presenter: Joe Pizzorno

  1. Toxins have become the primary drivers of chronic disease
  2. Water, air, food, health and beauty aids, yard and house chemical – all add up to a serious body burden to toxins which disrupt physiology
  3. The worst toxins are arsenic, DDT, organochlorine pesticides and organophosphate pesticides
  4. The entire population is affected
  5. There is huge variation in each person’s ability to detoxify the toxins
