Be our hero! Join us on this global day of giving as we raise funds to further the environmental toxicity and disease research efforts at Bastyr University.


Our wish on this giving day:

On #GivingTuesday, we have one wish: for everyone in our communities and world to be healthier and stronger, especially those dealing with chronic disease. 

As we look around, we can see that achieving that goal is a challenge. Staying healthy is work! Confounding our efforts to stay well are the chemicals and toxins we come in contact with on a daily basis in our homes, workplaces, and cities. Often invisible, we are seeing mounting evidence that these harmful substances are affecting our health and that of our families and friends.

Bastyr University is committed to being at the forefront of research on the link between toxins and chronic disease. We’ve been a leader over the years in research on complementary and integrative health and medicine, as demonstrated by receiving over $22 million dollars in NIH Funding to date. In fact, Bastyr was the very first naturopathic college to receive federal funding for research. We are ready to build upon that history of success and take the next step in more clearly identifying the relationship between specific toxins and specific diseases. As we know more, we can outline protocols to remove toxic elements and restore normal function.

We are ready to build upon that history of success and take the next step in more clearly identifying the role that toxins play in the development of chronic disease with one of our founders, Joseph E. Pizzorno, ND.

Join us as we raise vital funds for a study launching at Bastyr University in conjunction with Dr. Pizzorno, digging deeper to explore the relationship between environmental toxins and Type 2 Diabetes. The study hypothesis is that a reduction in exposures to commonly found environmental toxins can reduce harm to the pancreas and thus reduce clinical signs and symptoms of type 2 diabetes. This is an innovative approach to this disease condition and very much in keeping with the principles of naturopathic medicine -- reducing harmful substances that we come in contact with on a daily basis in order to improve wellness.

How can you help?

A gift today will advance this vital research effort, bringing us closer to treatment solutions for those battling chronic illness.
