Where do toxins occur and how are they absorbed?
The world is full of toxins. Our environment greatly impacts our health and as we are exposed to pollutants and toxic substances in our everyday life, heabvy metal toxicity becomes a concern. Heavy metals are toxic elements that are frequently ingested, inhaled or absorbed through the skin. Pollutants invade the body's tissues just as they invade the bloodstream. These substances, such as mercury, lead, thallium, arsenic, cadmium, bismnuth, antimony or similar metals frequently disrupt immune function, neurological function and endocrine function.

Common effects of heavy metal toxicity are:

  • Fatigue
  • Brain fog
  • Neurological and psychiatric symptoms such as anxiety and depression
  • Thyroid or adrenal fatigue
  • Infertility
  • Hyperactivity or insomnia
  • Arthritis or fybromyalgia or chronic pain symptoms not related to injury
  • Yeast overgrowth or frequent yeast infections
  • Frequent colds/flu or viral infections
  • Neurological disorders such as tics, memory loss, dementia, or tremors
  • Dimished eyesight
  • Dimished hearing, sense of taste or smell
  • Numbness or tingling
