Heavy metal toxicity can result in damaged or reduced mental and central nervous function, lower energy levels, and damage to blood composition, lungs, kidneys, liver, and other vital organs. Long-term exposure may result in slowly progressing physical, muscular, and neurological degenerative processes that mimic Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, muscular dystrophy, and multiple sclerosis. Allergies are not uncommon and repeated long-term contact with some metals or their compounds may even cause cancer (International Occupational Safety and Health Information Centre 1999).
Heavy metals become toxic when they are not metabolized by the body and accumulate in the soft tissues. Heavy metals may enter the human body through food, water, air, or absorption through the skin when they come in contact with humans in agriculture and in manufacturing, pharmaceutical, industrial, or residential settings. Industrial exposure accounts for a common route of exposure for adults.
Toxic metals have been found to affect cellular transfer and levels of other important minerals and nutrients that have significant neurological and health effects such as magnesium, lithium, zinc, iron, Vitamins B-6 & B1-12 .
Neurotransmitter production and function can be disrupted by heavy metals which can act as neurotoxins and disrupting brain neuronal activity.
Studies have found that heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium, lead, and tin affect chemical synaptic transmission in the brain and the peripheral and central nervous system. They also have been found to disrupt brain and cellular calcium levels that significantly affect calcium-dependent neurotransmitter release which results in depressed levels of serotonin, norepinephrine, and acetylcholine.
For the most accurate results use with a chelating agent to help with metal clearance. Phone consults available for guidance.
