Eliminating Heavy Metals Naturally
There are a number of neurological disorders that are a result of heavy metal toxicity such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s disease.
There is also new research reveals its effects on cardiovascular disease and immune disorders.
Sources of Heavy Metals
Heavy metals occur in a variety of products that are used in the house such as paint that contains lead, mercury cadmium and antimony – most exposure occurs during the stripping of old paint.
Indeed, children and babies have often been exposed to lead in older houses by touching and licking toxic paint in homes. Another source of aluminium, another neurotoxin is cooking utensils, such as pots and pans, which can also contain copper. Other sources of mercury, copper and arsenic would be household disinfectants and preservatives used in treated wood.
Insecticides and fungicides may contain arsenic, antimony and cadmium. Rat poisons often contain salt of thallium. Thallium is a bluish-white metal that enters the atmosphere through coal plants, smelters and mining. It enters the food chain through plants and can also be present in fish and shellfish. Thallium accumulates in the body with age and has been implicated in heart and nervous system disorders.
Cars and trucks release both manganese and cadmium from the catalytic converter and from tires and diesel exhaust contains high amounts of nickel and sulphur dioxide.
In industry, coal-burning power plants release mercury, antimony, arsenic and thallium into the atmosphere. Steel and metal foundries release a variety of toxic metals including lead, arsenic, copper, aluminium, thallium, cobalt and antimony, into the atmosphere.
Another hidden source of industrial toxin exposure is the use of industrial wastes containing zinc and iron to make fertilizers – these fertilizers usually contain arsenic, lead, mercury and cadmium, as well as the highly toxic dioxins. Organic foods do not contain these toxic fertilizers, so is worth buying organic whenever possible.
Fish is becoming a significant source of methyl mercury, a serious neurotoxin, and larger fish at the top of the food chain are going to be even more toxic with mercury, such as tuna, swordfish, shark, marlin, sea bass and halibut, which should be eaten in limited quantities or not at all.
Health Effects and Heavy Metal Exposure
Heavy metals affect three main areas of the human body:
a. the nervous system
b. the cardiovascular system
c. immune system.
Heavy metals, such as mercury and lead, disrupt nerve cell growth and metabolism and have been implicated in a variety of nervous system disorders. Aluminium was thought to be a cause of Altzheimer’s but recent research is implicating mercury.
Recent studies have shown a two- to three fold increase in heart attacks and cardiovascular disease linked to mercury found in fish. Other research has found an extremely high concentration of mercury and antimony in diseased heart tissue. It appears that heavy metals accumulating in extremely high concentrations in heart muscle may lead to heart failure and electrical instability.
Mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic have been linked to decreased number and activity of white blood cells which makes us more prone to infections.
Testing your Heavy Metal Load
If you have concerns about your level of heavy metals there is now a simple Hair Tissue Analysis that you can do to determine a number of heavy metals that are circulating in your blood, as well as a full mineral profile.
