Assessing your heavy metal status isn’t easy. Questioning and a thorough investigation into your past and present provide some indication of exposure. However, exposure doesn’t indicate how much of those heavy metals stayed in your body. A DNA test gives us another angle of understanding, by assessing your detoxification capacity and thereby assessing how capable your body is of removing these harmful metals. However, we still don’t know for certain whether treatment is required until we directly test for heavy metals. Unfortunately, testing for heavy metals isn’t that simple.
Do you suffer from elevated heavy metals?
We are exposed to heavy metals every day. The air we breath, the food we eat, the water we drink, the clothes we wear, the cosmetic products we use and the place we sleep at night, all contribute to the toxic burden on our body.
What is a heavy metal?
Simply stated, a metal of relatively high density, or of high atomic weight that causes abnormal or negative disturbance in the body.
These heavy metals may be; carcinogenic (cause cancer), disrupt the nervous system (brain function), affect the microbiome (gut bacterial balance) and commonly affect the endocrine system (hormones).
The most common heavy metals and ones considered by the World Health Organization to be the biggest risk to the population are cadmium, mercury, lead and arsenic.
That does make sense. Since mercury is prevalent and so toxic,knowing actual levels would be helpful. What might the costs be to run this tri fecta? It sounds like doing a challenge could be hard on the body if youre excreting mercury , because some would likely get recirculated through the hepatic portal. Too many people just end up recirculating mercury and not getting rid of it.
And, In lieu of what mercury can do and knowing that it gets in brain tissues,
What do you think of thermography for looking at the brain….not to diagnose mercury poisoning or exposure but to see if there was damage? Is that a viable method?
You aren’t mentioning biggest route for heavy metals elimination?
Stool. Why do you think that liver, which is storing ferritin, isn’t storing others heavy metals as well? It’s our filter. Also heavy metals and chemicals (liver test GGT over 16), are to blame, why liver is producing bad cholesterol, which body can’t utilize. Industry don’t teach kids, that, if you want to make cheap hard margarine from crapy oils, you use heavy metals as catalysts. Doctors should, with urine challenge test, do also stool challenge test. Actually provoked liver bile test with binders. But that would undermine their teachings. And profits.
Hi – I am trying to find the link to the tri mercury test and I can’t find it on the link you have in the email. Can you please send it to me?
