What are Heavy Metals

Heavy metals have nothing to do with Rock and Roll music or bands – they are non-essential toxic metals that damage your health. Examples of these include aluminium, arsenic, antimony, cadmium, lead, mercury, nickel, thallium, uranium, polonium and others.

Heavy metals are associated with many health problems – one of the main ways that they cause problems is by producing free radicals – nasty molecules in the body that damage cells, tissues and organs, as well as provoking the cell to mutate, possibly into cancer cells.

Toxic metals are everywhere – in vaccinations we find mercury, aluminium in the water supply, cadmium in cigarettes, mercury in amalgams and fish, arsenic in chickens used as animal growth promoters, as well as pesticides, lead in the atmosphere and even radioactive metals such as polonium-210, thallium and uranium being found on airplanes sitting on Heathrow’s runways!


The answer to this question is a categorical “yes!” It is an irrefutable fact that we live in a toxic soup of over 100,000 toxic chemicals and heavy metals. These are found all over the planet right up to the North and South Poles. Even Inuit Eskimo newborns in the North Pole have been found to have mercury, lead and pesticide residues in their blood, with American newborns having an average of 287 toxins in their blood, so what are the chances of an adult being squeaky clean? None!

Even though we do not get large amounts every time we consume water, food, chew with amalgams and breathe in from the atmosphere – these metals do accumulate in the body over time and can reach very toxic levels that can lead to degenerative diseases.

If you have amalgams in your mouth, the World Health Organization says that you could be absorbing a hugely toxic dose of up to 120 micrograms of mercury daily. Mother’s breastfeeding their children are inadvertently giving them large doses of this toxic mercury. Most drinking water contains aluminium; fish contains mercury; chickens could contain arsenic and travellers beware of radioactive metals. Yes, we live in this toxic soup so the question is not ARE we toxic but just HOW toxic we are!



Well, there are the common symptoms ranging from unexplained irritability, frequent periods of depression, skin irritation and itching, unexplained fatigue, bloating, memory problems and constipation through to chronic diseases such as heart disorders, arthritis, migraines, IBS and even chronic weight issues by disrupting your hormonal system.

Check out a list of the most common symptoms that are found in people that are known to be toxic in heavy metals and check out your own levels of toxicity by taking the HOW TOXIC AM I TEST? Online NOW! – (link this to the test questions that determine toxicity).

Most health conscious people will be detoxifying on a regular basis – part of this programme will also include a heavy metal detox too. It is best to use a gentle heavy metal detox such as HMD™ (Heavy Metal Detox) which is a natural dietary supplement that is available without prescription and can be taken by all age groups without side effects.

HMD™ has been scientifically tested with 350 people in a double blind, placebo controlled trial and has been shown to be effective at removing many different kinds of heavy metals without side-effects. It will also not remove the essential or good minerals from the body, as many other pharmaceutical chelators tend to do.

It is also affordable – the daily dose would cost you less than the price of an average chocolate bar and cheaper than a cup of coffee. It can also be taken by all the family, including children for eliminating heavy metals, or simply as a preventative measure as you would take your daily multivitamin and antioxidant.

Best effects will be obtained if you take it for 3-6 months. Many children are using it for autism and learning difficulties which the Centre for Disease Control in the US say that heavy metals are responsible for over 20% of learning difficulties in children. As one mother puts it:

  • “Alex is doing beautifully on the HMD™. I have been able to raise the dose. His speech is more frequent and clearer. His teacher reports “great” days at school. He is pretty regular and seems to actually be stimulated to move his bowels after his daily dose of HMD™ most times. There are other changes such as: singing with me, just knowing the words all of a sudden to songs, understanding us better, hearing better, etc.”

Other testimonials from using HMD™ include:

  • “Your work is brilliant and put my mind at ease about most of what is on the market that I’ve been thinking about trying next. I know I haven’t been wrong to take my son off all the other products we tried at the first sign of autoimmune response. The other products were not “whole” and were very, very hard on him”.
  • “A nurse practitioner in private practice and very experienced with detox has reported that the HMD™ is very gentle. She usually gets terrible cracks in her tongue when she detoxes and does not have any with the HMD™. Our Doctor of Oriental Medicine has seen urine tests from one family who trialed zeolite, NDF, and HMD™. The NDF and HMD™ pulled three times the heavy metals than zeolite, and the HMD™ was much more tolerable and gentle than the NDF. Clay baths and a form of metabolic NAET were used to support the chelators in all instances, a crucial step for detoxing children with autism as their excretion power is much diminished by the time they get help”.
  • “Oh, the gains are wonderful for us as a family on this HMD™! We are having to change how we act with Alex, he is so much more into us now and wants to do so much more with us. We were used to just ignoring him when we did certain things because he was just not as plugged in to the family routines”.
  • “We are having great results without detox stimming, etc., on HMD™. It’s very cheap, gentle, and effective. I will be posting our son’s hair/urine/fecal tests and mercury is showing on urine/fecal for the first time in four years. We are only about 1/4 through the first $59 bottle. Also we are all of a sudden seeing URANIUM big time in my son’s fecal test! My network of doctors/parents/etc. is also seeing a sudden rise in uranium in testing. I think you know what that means for us all ….”


I am certain that you are more aware of the dangers of heavy metals now. These insidious, nasty metals are everywhere and we must get them out of our systems before they do damage. It is almost certain that everyone, even young babies have heavy metals in their body, so the best thing to do is take a natural heavy metal chelator that eliminates toxic metals from the body. This can be taken preventatively by all the family on a daily basis, much like you take a multivitamin or antioxidant.

HMD™ is one of the only scientifically researched natural chelators that can protect you from heavy metals, without side effects – it is safe for all age groups. So why not add this wonderful natural chelator to your daily intake of nutritional supplements and see the difference in energy, gut function, anti-aging, clearer mind, better memory and I.Q., less irritable, less skin problems and a whole lot more health benefits.
