What are heavy metals?

You constantly come into contact with heavy metals in your environment. While this contact can occur through food and water, it can also occur through air pollution, cosmetics, medications, and even many common items in the home and work environment.

Exposure to heavy metal can comes from a variety of sources, including:

  • Air pollution from vehicle exhaust, release of industrial waste, and coal-fired power plants
  • Cigarette smoke
  • Contaminated fish from polluted water sources
  • Food grown in contaminated soil
  • Physical contact with contaminated soil
  • Residential paint (from older homes with lead-based paint)
  • Residential water (from older homes with copper or lead pipes)
  • Water pollution from industrial waste

Although your body can naturally detoxify and eliminate many of these toxic substances, when levels become too high, they can begin to adversely affect your health.

Part of the toxic tendency of heavy metals is to compete with the essential minerals your body needs for normal function. By comparing the levels of important nutritional minerals to the levels of heavy metals, one can better assess how these toxic substances can have a negative impact on health and well-being.

If you have any of the following symptoms, then heavy metal toxicity could be affecting your health:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Deteriorating eye health
  • Digestive problems
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Infertility
  • Memory problems
  • Mental “fogginess”
  • Poor heart and/or blood vessel function
  • Poor immune function (recurrent infections, autoimmune diseases)
  • Poor kidney function
  • Tingling sensations in the hands, feet, and/or around the mouth
  • Tremors

"My team of coaches and I recommend this test to many of our clients. Results come in quick, it's relatively inexpensive, though a little less thorough than the Mercury Tri-Test by Quicksilver."
