Many people have mercury in their mouths in the form of silver dental fillings. Mercury and other metallic components can gradually migrate out of the tooth and build up in the body. Our waterways are highly contaminated with mercury. Fish is a common source of mercury contamination via the food chain. In Switzerland silver fillings have been abandoned and considered as a toxic substance to place in the mouth. Mercury is associated with both autism and Alzheimer’s, and it is know to be directly toxic to the nervous system.
Recent studies have shown that cadmium has estrogenic influences to the uterus. Cadnium can be found in batteries and cigarette smoke. Cadmium is associated with hypertension.
Arsenic used to preserve wood and as a herbicide is a common pollutant found in water supplies. Lead is still of concern and can be found in older paints and pipes. Arsenic and lead for example can displace calcium and increase the risk of osteoporosis.
Due to high levels of exposure to heavy metals in our environment such as dental amalgams, paint, immunizations, industry, agriculture, etc. many people are suffering from heavy metal toxicity. Heavy metals can bind with a variety of tissues throughout the body and cause severe health problems.
Heavy Metal Signs & Symptoms can include: Irritability, Tachycardia (Fast heart rate), Excessive Itching, Depression, Bloated Feeling, Unexplained Fluid, Twitching Muscles, Rashes/Irritations, Numbness/Tingling, Burning Tongue, Metallic Taste, Cold Hands and Feet, Headaches After Eating, Jumpy/Jittery/Nervous, Leg Cramps, Memory Problems, Frequent Diarrhea, Ringing Ears, Frequent Insomnia, Chronic Inflammation, High Blood Pressure, Shortness of Breath, Chest Pains, Anemia-Chronic, Frequent Heartburn, Neuropathy, Constipation, Constant Pain in Joints, Indecision.
Some of the conditions that can be associated with heavy metal toxicity includes dementia, neurological problems, immune deficiencies, attention deficit /hyperactivity disorder, multiple sclerosis, and fibromyalgia.
By performing an analysis of elements in urine, potentially toxic elements such as lead, mercury, cadmium, nickel, beryllium, arsenic and aluminum, and assessment of the efficiency of renal resorption of essential elements such as magnesium, calcium, sodium and potassium are revealed. This is an invaluable tool for the confirmation of toxic element burden and monitoring of detoxification therapy. Once confirmation is made of a toxic element burden, suggestions are made to safely clear them.
