Arm yourself (and your clients!) with practical, real-world knowledge on environmental toxins — without all the sensationalized fear-mongering.


Everyday Exposure To Toxic Chemicals Is The #1 Most Overlooked Factor Leading To Chronic Illness. 

Leaders in Functional and Environmental Medicine agree: “Toxicity is the primary driver of disease.”

Unfortunately, most health professionals simply don’t have the knowledge they need to confidently counsel their clients about environmental toxins.

All too often, clients are left to their own devices to seek out information on YouTube, Instagram, and random “health” blogs… leading them down a rabbit hole of sensationalized misinformation and scare tactics.

The truth is: If you’re not educating clients on how to reduce their exposure to environmental toxins, you’re unwittingly undermining their results.

Nearly Every Chronic Health Issue Your Clients Face Is Linked To Environmental Toxicants

Leading scientists, health researchers, and functional medicine providers recognize that environmental toxins contribute to or cause nearly all chronic illness:


Weight Gain


Insulin Resistance




Brain Fog






Hormone Issues


Chronic Fatigue














Gut Dysbiosys


Heart Disease




Thyroid Disorders


Learning Disabilities


And More...

Environmental Toxins Are Everywhere, But…

The average medical school curriculum only offers 7 hours of training on environmental chemicals – if it’s offered at all.

While many health professionals jump straight to detox protocols, the truth is identifying and removing toxins can have a bigger, faster and longer-lasting impact on their clients’ health.

Talking Toxins Is VITAL Information For:


Health Coaches




Women’s Health Experts






Fitness Professionals






Health & Wellness Bloggers




Midwives & Doulas


Healthy Living Consultants

If You’re Not Fluent In Toxic Exposures, You’re Holding Your Clients Back From Getting Well.

Your clients are dealing with complex health challenges that require interventions beyond diet & exercise.

Addressing environmental toxins can make the difference between your clients reaching their health goals or continuing to struggle with symptoms.

Whether it’s hormonal imbalances, estrogen dominance, thyroid disorders, autoimmune conditions, infertility, allergies, eczema, gut issues, headaches, fatigue, cancer, or the inability to lose those last stubborn 10 pounds – environmental toxins are often the hidden factor preventing them from getting well.

By being able to confidently “talk toxins” with your clients, you can become their go-to expert instead of referring them out to external sources to get the info they need — and prevent them from going down internet research rabbit holes filled with misinformation that will leave them feeling overwhelmed, confused and scared.

That’s Why I Created:

The online course for health professionals seeking a balanced, evidence-based education on everyday toxic exposures
(the kind you can’t get on YouTube or Instagram)

Talking Toxins is a self-paced, online program for health practitioners and individuals with health-based businesses. 

Back by hundreds of peer-reviewed published studies, this evidence-based training focuses on the practical side of the environmental exposure problem: helping your clients or patients identify and address the everyday toxic exposures that may be causing or contributing to their health issues. 

With an emphasis on the most common environmental chemical exposures that are the easiest to avoid & have the most accessible solutions, this course will help you guide your clients on the most impactful lifestyle, product, and behavior changes!


After completing this course you’ll be able to: 

  • Gain an evidence-based education in environmental toxicant exposure and recognize (and avoid!) the fear-based scare tactics your clients may be coming up against

  • Easily provide your clients with the education and resources to identify and eliminate overlooked toxic that are preventing them from getting well.


  • Supercharge your client results with the right assessment, education, and tools to identify and address toxic exposures.

How Talking Toxins Can Transform Your Practice

Become The Go-To Resource In Your Community

Very few health professionals have the education or confidence to speak about these issues with their clients and patients, leaving individuals with no one to turn to.

The education in Talking Toxins will help you to become the go-to resource in your community, able to help educate and empower in ways that most health practitioners can’t. 

Stand Out In Your Field

Very few health professionals are able to market themselves as being able to address environmental exposures – most don’t know where to look or what to recommend. 

Your education in Talking Toxins will expand your tool kit for helping clients and patients get better. 

Open Up New Opportunities

When you’re able to “talk toxins” with clarity and confidence, new opportunities will open up for you- podcasts, summits, and more! 

Talking Toxins has opened doors for my students by creating speaking opportunities, and business opportunities that wouldn’t have been possible before! 

Rise Above Hype With Solid Research

Much of the conversation around toxins is filled with sensational, fear-based language that pushes more people away than it invites in. When you can share information that’s supported by research, you’re able to rise above all that hype and stand out as a trusted voice.

In Talking Toxins, you’re presented with a solid, peer-reviewed research and fully cited lessons.

Hi, I'm Lara Adler, and I teach health coaches, nutritionists, and other holistic health practitioners how to eliminate the #1 thing holding their clients back from the results they are seeking - the unaddressed link between chemicals and chronic health problems.

I train practitioners to become experts in everyday toxic exposures so they can improve client outcomes without spending hundreds of hours researching on their own (because you’ve got a practice to run!).

I merge the most current research in environmental health with practical, no-nonsense approaches so you can implement powerful new tools to reduce toxic exposures for your clients.

Combining environmental health education and business consulting, I’ve helped thousands of students in over 25 countries around the world elevate their skillset, get better results for their clients, and become sought out leaders in the growing environmental health & detoxification field.

“Lara Adler is the leading authority in environmental health. As a functional medicine physician deeply interested in this topic, I trust her for science-based and thorough information about environmental toxins and their influence on our health. She manages to make this complex subject practical, digestible, and applicable so that we as health professionals can better educate our patients.”

Christine Maren D.O. Functional Medicine Physician and co-founder of Hey Mami

“The Talking Toxins course is helping me to bring more of the preventive side of environmental health into my practice in ways that motivate my patients and help them in their decisions towards healthier choices. I highly recommend this course!”

Stefanie Lundell, MD, MPH, Occupational and Environmental Medicine

“As a busy doctor, entrepreneur, and mother time is more valuable than ever. Yes, I could have spent hundreds of hours researching toxins on my own but instead enrolling in Lara’s course not only saved me time but, I am certain I gained more knowledge than I would have if I researched myself. I only wish this information was part of every medical school education!”

Dr. Elana Roumell, Pediatric Naturopathic Doctor & Creator of Med School for Moms

Got Questions? Check Out The FAQ! 

Do I need to be a health professional to take this course?

The Talking Toxins course is designed for health professionals, but you do not have to be one to benefit from what you’ll learn.

Most of my students are health professionals like: health coaches, nutritionists, nurses, chiropractors, acupuncturists, occupational therapists, doula/midwives, etc.. I also have a lot of healthy-living bloggers, and healthy-living product consultants for companies like Beautycounter and Doterra as students, as learning about environmental toxins benefits their business.

A small number of my students are super motivated moms, or people on their own healing journey who are seeking ways to decrease their toxic load. If this is you, you’re welcome to join!

What is the format of this course?

Talking Toxins is a self-paced online course consisting of 5 modules (28 lessons).

Each module consists of a series of lessons delivered in a video presentation format. Written transcripts and audio downloads for each lesson will be made available on our course membership page.

What is the time commitment for this course?

Talking Toxins is a self-paced, 5-module course that includes a total of 10 hours of lessons. On average, it will take ~2 hours per week to complete.

Is this course a detox / do you teach detox protocols?

This course is not a detox in the conventional sense, although by following the recommendations throughout this course, you will be able to guide your clients on removing or reducing toxins from their daily environment, thereby “detoxing” your client’s living spaces. In order for our bodies to effectively detox, we need to ease the burden of chemicals it’s trying to process, and we do that by reducing our exposure

Additionally, this course does not teach detoxification protocols: this is outside of the scope of practice for many of my students. The first, most important, and most overlooked step in detoxification is actually avoidance, which is exactly what you’ll learn inside this course!

Will you be addressing ALL toxins in this course?

In this course we focus on the ubiquitous and harmful exposures to toxins that are the easiest for your clients or patients to address – what I consider to be the non-negotiables. This includes the products that we buy and use every single day that contain harmful chemicals. This is a “foundations” levels course that teaches you how to have the biggest impact, with the easiest interventions.

How is this course different from your other offerings?

If you’ve been a follower of mine for a while, you may have noticed that this course is similar to the now retired Tools for Teaching Toxicity, and Blueprint courses.

Talking Toxins is a brand new course that merges together much of the material that was originally covered in both Tools & Blueprint, which are no longer available, along with new content not included in either of those programs. If you are a former Tools or Blueprint student, special upgrade pricing is available for you – please email me at for details.

The Talking Toxins course is the precursor to the advanced Certificate Course in Environmental Health, which goes much deeper into various aspects of this space and offers highly personalized business consulting in small group formats.


I've researched a lot about toxins. Will information in this course be “new” to me?

While it’s impossible for me to know what you already know, I will say that this course is NOT just about the facts or what the research says. This course also helps you to take that information and integrate it into the work that you’re already doing, or offer insights and perspective shifts on how you can talk about toxins with your clients or family in a way that’s less likely to overwhelm them or shut them down. Information is not enough. We must also know how to use it, and how to apply it in order for us to benefit from it.

Do you cite your sources?


My students are super-nerds like me, and like to follow the crumb trail of citations to deeper research. The lesson transcripts for this course are fully cited and contain over 700 citations!  The vast majority of my research comes form well respected, peer reviewed scientific journals (none of it comes from random blogs or Wikipedia!). I’ve woven together information from literally thousands of resources, both online and off to offer a unique, real world perspective about environmental toxins.

Can't I just do this research on my own?

Maybe. But will you?

In my experience people just don’t, because this field is VAST and DEEP and COMPLICATED! It’s taken me years of research and thousands of hours to create this course.

Why re-create the wheel? Part of what makes this training so great is that I take all complexity and distill it into small, easy, and actionable steps. I’ve also been doing this research for nearly 10 years now, and have hundreds of online and offline resources at my disposal that help me to better understand this complex field of chemical toxins. So, sure, while you technically can do this research yourself, I can just about promise you that you won’t want to!

Can I share some of the course material with clients?


I designed this course to be EASY for you, and that includes providing you with materials – specifically the 10 white-labeled handouts – that you can share directly with your clients.

During your second week in the course, you’ll get access to all 10 of these client-facing resources in Microsoft Word format. You’re free to edit them however you wish, add your logo, branding, etc. These are written in a client-facing language that’s clear and easy to understand.

Additionally, the content inside the Practitioner Talking Point handouts are also available for you to use as Instagram, FB or other social media copy, as soundbites when talking to your clients, or making videos.

The rest of the course materials may not be shared, as it’s for your educational purposes only.

To read the full details about what you can and can’t share, please click here to access the Terms & Conditions.

Do you have a scholarship program?

YES! Low-income and BIPOC communities in the US and abroad often experience disproportionate exposures to environmental chemicals. These communities also often lack access to healthy food and green spaces and lack access to education around helping to minimize exposure and optimize health.

My goal in offering scholarship seats to this course is to help bring practical, and actionable education to those communities who need it most.

We offer 2 types of scholarship:
An Equity Scholarship discount that is awarded to low-income and BIPOC individuals and a full Community Work Scholarship for folks working in a non-profit, or clinical capacity in low-income or BIPOC communities.

At the moment, we are making 12 Community Work scholarships available each year, and an unlimited number of Equity Scholarships!

If you feel that you meet the requirements for this scholarship, please click here to fill out the application. 

Do you have a refund policy?

Yes! If, after enrolling in Talking Toxins and checking out the course materials, you decide it’s not a good fit for you, just email my team at within 48 hours of your purchase and we’ll refund 100% of your money. After 48 hours, refunds are not offered.

Hey! You missed my question!
