Heavy Metals

Heavy metal are trace metals with density at least five times that of water. As such, they are stable elements (meaning they cannot be metabolized by the body) and bio accumulative. The heavy metal impact mental and neurological function, They include:

  • Mercury
  • Arsenic
  • Nickel
  • Cadmium
  • Lead
  • Aluminum
  • Platinum
  • Cooper


High concentration exposure is not necessary to produce a state of toxicity in the body, as heavy metals accumulate in body tissue and over time, can reach toxic concentration levels.

Heavy metal intoxication symptoms:

  • Headache
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Digestive distress, and reduced ability to properly assimilate and utilize fats
  • Aching joints
  • Depression
  • Impaired blood sugar regulation
  • Female reproductive problems such as menstrual difficulties, infertility, miscarriage,pre-eclampsia, pregnancy-induced hypertension and premature birth
  • Unexplained irritability
  • Frequent unexplained bouts of depression
  • Unexplained anxiety
  • Brain fog
  • Acid indigestion after eating
  • Metallic taste in mouth
  • Racing heart beat


Much of the damage produce by toxic metals stem from the proliferation of oxidative free radicals they cause. Free radicals results naturally when cell molecules react with oxygen but, with a heavy toxic load or existing antioxidant deficiencies uncontrolled free radical production occurs. Unchecked free radicals can cause tissue damage throughout the body free radicals damage underlies all degenerative disease. Antioxidants such vitamin A, C and E curtail free-radical activity.

Low levels of toxic elements have negative health consequences, however, these vary from person to person.

  • Nutritional status
  • Integrity of detoxification pathways
  • The mode and degree of heavy metal exposure all effect how an individual responds.


Common Sources of Heavy Metals

  • Shampoo
  • Canned food
  • Skin cream
  • Lead water pipes in older buildings
  • Fish: Not all fish, but many farmed varieties tend to be contaminated with mercury.
  • Soft drinks from vending machines with cadmium in the pipes
  • Baby formula
  • Baked goods and processed foods
  • Deodorants
  • Over-the-counter and prescription antacids


Dentistry a Sources of Heavy Metals?

Dental fillings:

Mercury is primarily released as a vapor to gain access to the brain and blood.

Dental Crowns:

Exist different materials of crown the most common is metal fused to porcelain


Nickel: Reduce the body’s natural cancer fight ¨NK¨ cells which are the only way to combat cancer.
Beryllium: is known to be highly toxic, especially for diseases of the lung
Chromium & cobalt: When combined together are highly cancer producing.

What to do?

Make a change in your lifestyle diet and rebalancing the body chemistries played a big role in healing recovery.

Remove heavy metals with the safest way for avoid contaminate more your body as long as you have it.
