Heavy metals are found naturally in our earth and its soil, but they have also become more prevalent in modern society due to human interaction such as mining, industrial waste, agricultural runoff, lead acid batteries, occupational exposure, paints, and more.
Heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium, arsenic, chromium, thallium, aluminum and lead can cause toxicity in the human body, leading to a variety of brain, body, and behavioral issues, as well as a myriad of health issues, which are often mis-diagnosed or attributed to other factors.
This can cause symptoms to linger, and treatment to be delayed.
Removal of heavy metal toxins can help to boost your immune system, improve brain health, revitalize body function, as well as alleviate other negative symptoms that may be due to heavy metal toxicity.
Read on to learn more about heavy metal toxicity and how to free your body of these toxins.
What do Heavy Metals Do To Us?
The negative symptoms and effects of heavy metal poisoning appear in many different shapes and sizes. Healthcare professionals believe that abnormally high levels of heavy metal toxicity can be found in children on the autism spectrum, those suffering from ADHD/ADD, cancer, and more.
Those suffering from adrenal issues, weight loss issues, thyroid issues, or skin issues (such as eczema or acne) may also have high levels of heavy metals in their body.
Low energy and fatigue, imbalance in the immune system, fibromyalgia, IBS, dementia, and alzheimer's can all be associated with heavy metals poisoning.
In general, symptoms can range to all aspects of life.
How Are Humans Exposed to Heavy Metal Toxicity?
There are many ways that heavy metal toxicity can occur. This includes occupational hazards in industries like mining and construction, through objects such as toys, or materials such as paint and batteries, and can even be passed down by birth if the mother has a large concentration of heavy metals.
Furthermore, heavy metals may be consumed in our daily diets. While some processed foods contain these toxins, heavy metals are also found in our soil and therefore can be found even in plants and vegetables.
In one way or another, nearly all people have had some exposure to heavy metals, regardless of life choices or occupation.
