Scientists at Mount Sinai School of Drugs in New York found that eliminating heavy metals is sort of challenging.
They worked with the Environmental Work Group. Their research involved 9 sufferers who had no contact with heavy metals. However, the results confirmed that lead was found in every of the members. Eight of them had mercury in their our bodies. So, staying away from heavy metals is nearly not possible. Well, there are just a few tricks you can use.
Primary sources of heavy metals
Metals enter your bloodstream in several ways:
- Mercury fillings in teeth
- Living in home constructed prior to 1978 (lead-based paint)
- Active/Passive exposure to cigarette smoke
- Personal care products (deodorant, makeup)
- Seafood (salmon, lobster)
- Baking powder
- Environmental factors
So, babies get 20+ vaccines by 18 months, and we get our dental cavities filled with mercury fillings. Should we add more?
Even the lowest dose can have a fatal effect in infants. Lead and mercury cause brain and nerve damage in babies. But, that doesn’t apply to adults.
Signs of metal toxicity
Check if you have any of the following symptoms:
- Chronic pain
- Discomfort, fatigue and illness
- Brain fog, confussion and forgetfulness
- Candida overgrowth
- Gastrointestinal problems (diarrhea, constipation, bloating, gas, heartburn and indigestion)
- Food allergies
- Headaches and migraines
- Mood swings, depression and anxiety
- Issues with the nervous system (burning extremities, numbness, tingling and paralysis)
- Skin problems
- Sensitive teeth
Heavy metal toxicity may result in autism, chronic fatigue syndrome and multiple sclerosis. Yes, it’s that serious.
Avoid heavy metals
Keep in mind that much of the damage is done in your childhood (vaccines and mercury fillings). But, you can do something to make the problem even worse:
- Stop smoking and avoid cigarette smoke
- Use aluminum-free skin care products
- Don’t eat too much seafood
- Avoid using aluminum in cooking
- Avoid fumes and smoke that contain heavy metals
- Always use aluminum-free baking powder
- Remove your mercury fillings (use professional help!)
- Avoid vaccinations and strengthen your immune system naturally
- Test your home for lead if its build prior to 1978
Remove heavy metals from your body
If you have trouble determining your level of metal toxicity, do a blood test or check your hair and urine. Detoxification matters, and you should also consider eating more of the following foods:
- Pectin in fruits and vegetables
- Cilantro and Chlorella/Spirulina
- Bentonite clay
- Fermented foods
- Foods abundant in zinc, selenium, and vitamin C
Modified citrus pectin enhances the natural urinary excretion of mercury, arsenic, cadmium, lead and aluminum without affecting the excretion of calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, and selenium. Use herbs and minerals supplements to prevent any damage. Try the chelation therapy or infrared saunas.
Removing heavy metals from your body is hard, but do your best to eliminate every bit of these.
