Is Your Body Overloaded with Heavy Metals?

If you have any of the following symptoms, it may indicate that you have an overload of heavy metals in your body. They are unexplainable chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, mental fog, migraines, memory problems, Chronic Fatigue, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), chronic lyme disease, chronic sinusitis, achy joints, asthma, anxiety, and tingling sensations in the hands, feet and mouth.

Heavy metals are elements that can be toxic and very dangerous even in low concentrations.  These metals are described as being heavy because they stick around in the body, especially hiding out in adipose tissue (fat cells). They are difficult to get rid of. The heavy metals in the environment that are most commonly found to be linked to adverse health problems include: Mercury, Lead, Cadmium, Arsenic, Aluminum and Nickel.

Symptoms of heavy metals in your body include chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, mental fog, migraine, memory problems, ADD and ADHD, chronic lyme disease, chronic sinusitis, achy joints, anxiety and tingling sensations in the hands, feet and mouth. Once they are in the body, heavy metals are difficult to get rid of as they hide out in the fat cells. This is one reason weight loss can sometimes result in heavy metal detoxing, as fat cells shrink
and release dormant toxins.

There is virtually no way to entirely avoid heavy metal exposure, considering metals are natural elements found all over the world in the food supply, water and ground. Environmental metals are problematic because over time, they can accumulate within bodily tissues, often without the person who is affected even realizing this is happening. Heavy metal toxicity can result in damaged or reduced mental and central nervous function, plus damage to the vital organs — such as the liver, heart, endocrine glands and kidneys.

Long-term exposure to heavy metals may lead to physical, muscular, and neurological degenerative processes. When they become severe, heavy metal poisoning symptoms can even mimic symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis. 

Since heavy metals can silently sabotage your health, it’s important to be aware of the common ways heavy metals get into your body.

1. Public Water

Lead-contaminated drinking water from the tap is a problem that threatens the health of people nationwide.

One report by USA Today explained that elevated levels of lead were found in almost 2,000 water systems in the United States. Another study found that over 3,000 communities in the US have double the amount of lead in their water as the infamous Flint drinking water.

These high amounts of lead are primarily due to the fact that old lead pipes are still in use even though their installation is now banned. These old lead pipes are slowly rusting and corroding. As water passes through, lead particulates are released into the water.

2. Beauty Products

Cosmetics or beauty products are also often contaminated with toxic heavy metals. This includes products like lipstick, eyeliner, eye shadow, blush, moisturizers, hair dye, and even sunscreens.

Whether it is lead in lipstick or aluminum in deodorant, these products are used daily and can be a significant source of heavy metal exposure.But you don’t have to completely avoid beauty products to protect your health. Instead, take the time to read the ingredients list before using or buying any beauty products.

3. Pesticides in Food

Among their countless additional dangers, pesticides often contain heavy metals such as cadmium, lead, and arsenic. Pesticides are heavily used on most foods and produce that aren’t organic, and can be particularly high in breads and processed foods. To avoid them, buy organic whenever possible.

4. Dental Fillings

You know those silver-colored dental fillings? They’re called amalgam dental fillings. And these bad boys are up to 50% mercury by weight. The problem is, amalgam dental fillings don’t just sit there in your teeth. They break down over time, slowly releasing mercury into your body. And if there’s any tooth decay near the fillings, even more mercury is released.

Dental amalgam is a common material used to fill cavities. Fillings made with amalgam also are known as silver fillings. All silver-colored fillings are dental amalgam fillings, and each of these fillings is approximately 50% mercury. Mercury vapor is continuously emitted from dental amalgam fillings, and much of this mercury is absorbed and retained in the body. An estimated 80% of the mercury vapor from dental amalgam fillings is absorbed by the lungs and passed to the rest of the body, particularly the brain, kidney, liver,
lung, and gastrointestinal tract. 

If you want to get rid of them, however, use extreme care because the extraction process can cause the mercury to vaporize and enter your body. Holistic dentists are trained in methods to safely remove these fillings.

5. Pharmaceutical Drugs

Some prescription drugs contain heavy metals as binding agents. Over-the-counter antacids are also a significant source of aluminum. Additionally, some vaccines also have heavy metals. The multi-dose flu vaccine still has the mercury-based preservative thimerosal in every dose.

While the FDA considers these agents to be “safe” because they are present in low amounts, it fails to account for the accumulated exposure people experience with heavy metals from so many other sources.

Take Action to Protect Your Health

Heavy metals are hidden in plain sight. While it’s nearly impossible to completely avoid heavy metals, you can limit your exposure and seek out natural products to reduce your intake. Since you likely already have accumulated heavy metals in the body, it’s also good to consider taking steps to reduce the levels in your body.

One effective way to do this is with DXN Spirulina.

For a detox diet to truly work, you need to maintain the three key organs of liver, colon and kidneys by nourishing your body with the right nutrients. Spirulina is one of those nutrients. It’s full of antioxidants and also aids the liver in detoxifying and contains many elements necessary for a healthy functioning immune system and nervous system.

Here’s some great reasons to include spirulina as part of a healthy lifestyle:

1. Spirulina is known to be alkalizing to the body, which boosts liver function, a necessary element while detoxing.

2. Spirulina contains chlorophyll which is used for “detoxification” by helping remove toxins such as heavy metals and other pollutants from the blood.

3. Spirulina is high in B-vitamins: vitamins B-1 (thiamine), B-2 (riboflavin), B-3 (nicotinamide), B-6 (pyridoxine), B-9 (folic acid).

4. Spirulina is high in other vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E, manganese, zinc, copper, iron, and selenium.

DXN Spirulina strengthens the immune system and eliminates virus infections, enhances natural cleansing and detoxification of heavy metals acts as an effective blood cleanser, lowers cholesterol level, improves ovarian functions, improves gastrointestinal and digestive health, provides antioxidant protection and reduces cancer risk, enables the body to produce new supply of red blood cells, and improves red blood cells life span
and increases oxygen levels in the body.

5. Spirulina is rich in protein. In fact, amino acids make up 62% of spirulina and provide 4 grams per 1 tablespoon.

6. Spirulina contains gamma linolenic acid, an essential fatty acid. The only other place it is found is in a mother’s breastmilk. It has amazing anti-inflammatory properties.

7. Spirulina has potent antioxidant activity, particularly phycocyanin and beta carotene—antioxidants that can help protect cells from damage.

8. The very high concentration of bioavailable iron makes it excellent during pregnancy and for those with anemia.
