Heavy Metal Detoxification
Heavy metal detoxification is the removal of metallic toxic substances from the body. Toxic metals, including heavy metals, are individual metals and metal compounds that negatively affect people’s health. In very small amounts, many of these metals are necessary to support life. However, in larger amounts, they become toxic. They may build up in biological systems and become a significant health hazard
As naturally occurring elements, heavy metals are everywhere, from the food we eat, the water we drink to the air we breathe. Generally, heavy metals are found in diesel exhaust, jewelry, ceramic pigments, hydrogenated oils, cigarettes, dyes, bleaching agents, preservatives, lotions, soaps, batteries, paints, dentures… the list goes on and on.
Why Are Heavy Metals Dangerous?
The problem with heavy metals is that they accumulate in the body building in concentration. This causes numerous health problems that can seriously impact every major organ in the body. Studies show that heavy metals in the body may be implicated in everything from Alzheimer’s to cardiovascular disease, from behavioral problems to kidney dysfunction, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, and even paralysis.
Heavy Metal Symptoms
Signs and symptoms of heavy metal poisoning vary depending on the type and amount of metal involved. However, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea (the hallmark symptoms with most cases of acute metal ingestion), and dehydration are very typical.
Heavy Metal Chelation Therapy
Heavy metal chelation therapy is the preferred medical treatment for metal poisoning, including acute mercury, iron, arsenic, lead, uranium, plutonium and other forms of toxic metal poisoning. To learn more about heavy metal detoxification or to schedule testing, contact the Natural Medicine Group.
