Has anyone had a environmental pollution profile?

I just had one done and it is astounding how bad my profile came out. I was at a toxic level for several substances, one of which is paraben. Also phthlalate. I've been Paleo since September and not only haven't lost weight, I've gained!!! So I had a CRP done which was 13, reduced it to 9 over several months. So now what? I'm taking a s**tload of supplements and I'm not sure what I should do next. A lot of my exposure to substances is at work.( A Hospital ) Also I live in Vermont which is pretty rural. I'm careful to not using the microwave especially reheating in plastic. Any ideas?

additionally, and perhaps worst of all, there is BPA all over most "credit card paper" - the thermal receipts you get at most stores. The BPA sits as a "free" unbound fine powdery layer over the top of the paper and is very readily absorbed. Some people consider this the worst BPA exposure risk of all. here is a good article: http://www.sciencenews.org/view/generic/id/48084/title/Science_%2B_the_Public__Concerned_about_BPA_Check_your_receipts

I'm trying to do a flush now but my daily intake of toxins is pretty high. I see a naturopath today to see what he recommends. In order to totally avoid toxins, I'd have to live in a bubble.

I think this is a really important consideration. National Geographic did a great article where they paid to have a writer tested for all manner of pollutants. I remember it came back off the charts for flame retardants, which was figured in the article to be a result of too much air travel! These kinds of pollutants seem to be increasingly unavoidable and I would be interested in a good response on "flushing the system"
