The Prevention and Treatment of Heavy Metal Toxicity

Heavy Metal Toxicity is an excessive build-up of metals in the soft tissues of the body. These metal may include, but not limited to, antimony, arsenic, bismuth, cadmium, cerium, chromium, cobalt, copper, gallium, gold, iron, lead, manganese, mercury, nickel, platinum, silver, tellurium, thallium, tin, uranium, vanadium, and zinc. Small amounts of these elements are common in our environment and diet. Built in body transport and handling mechanisms keep metals from doing harm. However, large amounts of any of these metals may cause acute or chronic toxicity (poisoning). Heavy metal toxicity can result in damaged or reduced mental and central nervous function, lower energy levels, and damage to blood composition, and vital organs. Long-term exposure may result in slowly progressing physical, muscular, and neurological diseases, and allergies. Repeated long-term contact may cause cancer. Protecting cellular antioxidant and detoxifying agents and strengthening the immune system are essential to supporting the body’s handling of heavy metals.
