Heavy metals toxins are particularly harmful to our health. Lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, and aluminum are included in this category.
Heavy metal toxins tend to accumulate in the brain, kidneys and immune system.
Up to 25 percent of the US population suffers from heavy metal poisoning especially from lead, mercury, and aluminum. Over 600,000 tons of lead is released into the atmosphere from industrial processes and leaded gasoline. The toxins could then either be inhaled or ingested after being deposited on food crops, fresh water and soil.
Heavy metal toxicity has been linked to several diseases including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and severe neurological disorders.
Other common sources of heavy metals include lead from pesticides sprays and cooking utensils; cadmium and lead from cigarette smoke; mercury from dental fillings, contaminated fish, and aluminum from antacids cookware, and soda cans.
Hair mineral analysis is a convenient but often unreliable screening test. The most accurate measurement is by blood analysis of actual toxin levels within the red blood cell. Many toxic metals have a tendency to accumulate inside the cell where most of the damage is done. Serum toxic metal levels do not correlate well with intracellular toxic metal levels.
The early signs of heavy metal poisoning are vague or often attributed to other diseases. The early symptoms of heavy metal poisoning include headaches, fatigue, muscle pain, indigestion, tremors, constipation, anemia, indigestion and tremors. Mild toxicity symptoms include impaired memory and distorted thinking ability. Severe toxicity can lead to death.
Solution: Chelation therapy using EDTA to bind toxic metals, high potency multiple-vitamin-and mineral supplement, vitamin C and B complex, sulfur containing amino acids (methionine, cysteine, and taurine), and high sulfur-content foods such as garlic, onion, eggs, water-soluble fibers such as guar gum, oat bran, pectin and psyllium seed.
When toxic metals in body are bond and changed in its chemical nature, they become body waste and have to be extracted from body. Colon Hydrotherapy completes the treatment process by eliminating the waste in the colon. Or the chelation therapy will not be effective in the sense that the transformed waste remains in the colon allowing the self intoxication to happen.
