Heavy Metal Toxins
Heavy metals toxicity is caused by increasing levels of pollution and prevalence usage of chemicals in the food and environment. High levels of toxic metals can be accumulated with time in the body in bones, organs, fat and circulate free in the blood and subsequently influencing the brain are linked with almost any possible condition.
Chemical sensitivity testing is another option and can be done at the same time or separately. Chemical sensitivity is a sign of immune toxicity. It is associated with health problems like increase in hypertension, respiratory problems (asthma, hay fever), histamine reactions, fibromyalgia, EMF sensitivity, overweight, auto immunity, infertility, headache and mental health.
Several tests could help understand the exposure and the body ability to detoxify:
DNA Methylation testing, Heavy Metal urine test, Organic Acid Test, Mycotoxin test (mold).
Heavy metal testing is none-invasive and affordable and necessary for a full evaluation. No test shows the total body burden of heavy metal it just shows the amount leaving the body and give a glue of the possible over all exposure. Candidate for testing: anyone (non invasive).
How does affect your health?
Toxic metals have been found to disrupt hormones, neurotransmitters, and decrease the immunity leading to cancer. Elevated level of heavy metal is correlated with heart diseases, liver and kidney issues, allergies and sensitivities, and mental health. Metal toxicity is correlated with overgrowth of candida (especially with high Mercury) and many times it is addressed at the same time. Chemical sensitivity impacts the hormone balance and play a direct role in the endocrine function.
After an analysis of a level of exposure to toxic environment is determining the best approach for the detoxification. The detox is personalized based on lab results, age, medical history, sensitivity and patient preferences. An important role in the elimination of heavy metals is played by each individual genetics especially methylation. Good methylation leads to proper detoxification and elimination of toxins. The heavy metal detox combines sauna, colonics, dietary changes and nutritional support. Metal detoxification agents can significantly increase the excretion of specific nutrient elements such as zinc, copper, manganese, and molybdenum and proper supplementation is needed.The follow up includes the protection and support for the liver, kidney, lymph detox with immune boosting elements. Metal detoxification is increased by specific nutrients and anti oxidants like Glutathione, Alpha Lipoic Acid, NAC, Selenium, Zn, Curcumin, Glutamine, Milk Thistle and cruciferous family. Proper and gentile excretion is done in time and involves steps process. At the end of detox it is recommended a post testing to compare the progress.
How to protect oneself?
The most important is understanding the sources and protecting oneself from re exposure by reducing the food and environmental toxins.
Some sources of environmental toxins: large fish (swordfish, shark, tuna, halibut, orange roughy) scented candles, fabric softners, pesticides, air freshners, cleaning supplies, paints, tabacco smoke, indoor and outdoor pollution, water supplies, inorganic foods, dry cleaning, and fragrances, etc.
