12 April 2022: over lunchtime, Dr Christabelle Yeoh presented to approximately 70 staff members of ARUP Sydney as part of their corporate wellbeing regular events.
The title of the presentation was "Invisible enemies: important factors to consider in the pursuit of health and wellness in 2022!".
After an introduction to what is enviornmental medicine, she covered themes such as the "Chemical Soup" in which we live, the ways we are exposed to chemical chemical and mould biotoxins and how they impact our metabolism, how they can trigger or contribute to a "cytokine storm", what we can do to mitigate our "Total Load" and support our mitochondrial function, the importance of and pathways for detoxing.
The feedback coming through was extremely positive and some of the engineers are going to apply what they have learnt to the “incubator skills network”, where they plan to consider how to address similar issues in design and the impact of the built environment more generally on human health.
