Heavy Metal Detox
Environmental toxins have plagued humans for centuries, but modern technological advances have incrementally increased the amount of heavy metals that we encounter. Dental amalgams, herbal supplements, seafood, manufacturing byproducts, auto emissions and certain skin care products may contain heavy metals that are affecting the health of our industrialized society.
While our bodies have the capacity to encapsulate and eradicate toxins, a lifetime of ever-increasing exposure to pesticides, industrial chemicals and radioactive elements adds up.
If toxicity is suspected, the first step is to assess your heavy metal burden through blood, hair and urine testing. Based upon these results a detoxification program will be formulated to meet your unique needs.
Most of us encounter more than 1,200 compounds that are known to have deleterious effects on human health. These chemicals are pervasive in our home building materials, garden pesticides and weed killers, flame-retardant furniture and mattresses, auto emissions, cleaning products, plastics and even skin-care products. Exposure to these toxins punishes our organs and puts us at risk of disease, fatigue, and digestive, cognitive and behavioral disorders.
Our inherent detoxification capacity is influenced by genetics as well as lifestyle. Knowing how well your body handles these everyday poisons is power and leads to subsequent measures to support you in radically reducing the accumulation of these noxious compounds.
