How Toxic Heavy Metals May be a Critical Factor in Your Chronic Illness... and How to Protect Yourself
There’s no doubt about it—we live in a toxic world. It gets worse year after year. Many of your symptoms are caused by environmental and industrial toxins. Heavy metals are a tremendous concern and threat to your health. One simply cannot expect to recover from the chronic illness without addressing metal toxicity.
Normally, our bodies can eliminate toxic heavy metals. They do exist in nature. However, we stopped living in a natural world a long time ago! Cap that off with the effects of infection, which renders you weakened in your ability to eliminate metals (on a cellular level), resulting in a toxic build-up.
Your choice is to be aware of the poisonous substances we’re exposed to every day, or to ignore them.
There are over 100,000 chemicals used worldwide, with the numbers increasing dramatically. FDA approval hardly means non-toxic.
Perhaps ages ago, it meant something. It would be extremely naïve to assume much concern or testing for their safety exists. It is not realistic to shield yourself from all of them. However, we must do the best we can to avoid them, and take steps to eliminate existing toxins from our bodies.
How often have you reported to a doctor that you’ve had symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, joint pain, memory troubles, etc? Was it ever mentioned to you that metal toxicity could be part of the problem? Have you been asked if you have mold or mildew problems in your home or workplace?
What about chemicals from paint, carpeting, household cleaners, personal care products, perfumes, and others that you may use regularly? Conventional Western medicine seems to scoff at this idea—calling it a fabrication of alternative medicine! That’s rather pathetic considering there’s a flood of evidence of toxicity from countless sources.
Any way you slice it, improving one's ability to detoxify heavy metals is an integral part of a whole-body, wellness based approach to conquering the chronic illness.
One important example of metal toxicity is that from mercury.
Mercury is a poisonous metal that can get into our bodies from various sources. It weakens the immune system and can speed up infection. Many types of Infection, in turn, weaken your body’s capacity to eliminate poisons. This appears to be the reason why sufferers of chronic Lyme disease are more likely to accumulate mercury. Who knows which came first—the mercury or the infection!
Either way, we must handle both problems, as an essential component of a whole-body, wellness-based treatment approach.
Toxic heavy metals interfere with normal balance and location in the body of nutritional minerals. They can accumulate and affect the function of your brain, liver, heart, bones, and other organs.
Lead or cadmium, for example can replace normal calcium in enzyme reactions in your body. Heavy metals, such as nickel, cadmium, and arsenic can affect your DNA, which has been linked to cancer.
The list of possible symptoms related to aluminum toxicity alone, is staggering!
· Alzheimer’s disease/dementia
· Behavioral problems
· Learning Disabilities
· Gastrointestinal Problems
· Low Energy
· Decreased Immune Function
· Restless Legs
· Liver Problems
· Kidney Problems
· Skin Problems
· Muscle Aches
How does aluminum get into your body? It is unbelievable how many sources of toxic aluminum exist. Here’s a list of just a few of them:
· Antiperspirants and Deodorants
· Dental Amalgams
· Tobacco Smoke
· Water Supply
· Prescription & Over-the-Counter Medicines
· Baking Powder
· Auto Exhaust
· Aluminum Foil and Cans
Aluminum is everywhere & it is harmful to our health
We are bombarded with lead from many sources. It can come from cigarette smoke, inks, pesticides, children’s toys, city water, paint, pottery, cosmetics, household dust, auto exhaust, canned fruit and juice, and various other industrial sources.
Lead toxicity can cause: abdominal pains, adrenal gland dysfunction, kidney problems, peripheral neuropathies, numbness, joint pain, insomnia, headaches, depression, attention deficit disorder, allergies, anxiety, muscle weakness, thyroid problems, memory loss, menstrual problems, fatigue, and many other symptoms.
Cadmium toxicity has a shockingly long list of potential symptoms associated with it, including infertility, flu-like symptoms, bone disease, migraines, osteoporosis, liver damage, alopecia (hair loss disease), impotence, digestive difficulties, kidney disease, and many others.
If you are a smoker, you are inhaling cadmium every day. Not only is cadmium found in cigarette smoke, but also in some sodas, refined grains and cereals, fish, tap water, and various environmental and industrial contaminants.
Lead is poisonous, no kidding. We breather in cadmium, daily!
If you’re fatigued, perhaps it’s not all caused by Lyme disease, post-COVID, or some other infection you’ve had. Mercury toxicity can cause adrenal glands dysfunction, in addition to a mind-blowing number of symptoms:
Speech disorders, nerve degeneration, thyroid dysfunction, memory loss, skin problems, suicidal tendencies, joint pain, migraines, dizziness, hyperactivity, depression, loss of coordination, vision problems, and hearing loss.
Mercury sources are numerous, including all kinds of manufacturing and industrial production. Mercury is of course, found in dental fillings. It is actually of greater concern for getting in your body from cosmetics, fabric softeners, seafood, tattoos, laxatives, pesticides, and yes—our water supply.
Mercury can light the fire to many chronic illnesses, and seems to be a major factor with Lyme disease. It is one of the most poisonous metals on the planet.
If you’re suffering depression, copper toxicity could be a factor. The same is the case for yet another horrifying long list of symptoms, including allergies, fatigue, thyroid dysfunction, insomnia, decreased sex drive, panic attacks, urinary tract infections, yeast infections, mood swings, and many more.
Copper toxicity has even been linked with multiple sclerosis, which incidentally, has been found to be in some cases, triggered by Lyme and other infection.
MS is an autoimmune disorder. Infection is what scientists agree usually triggers autoimmune disease.
Copper can get into your body from cookware, dental fillings, pesticides, industrial emissions, birth control pills, beer, fish, chocolate, and many other food and industrial sources.
I can go on and on about other metals and symptoms of their toxicity, including arsenic, beryllium, iron, nickel, etc. I challenge all readers with this question:
Do you know anybody who doesn’t suffer from at least one of the symptoms discussed in this article, which could very likely be associated with metal toxicity?
Familiarize yourself with these heavy metal potential symptoms, which is apparently, just about anything! Perhaps you will conclude that a good doctor absolutely must consider all of these factors (and other toxins and microbes) when a patient presents to them with nearly any problem.
Mercury & copper are everywhere. Our cells must fight to eliminate these metals, daily!
Awareness of these toxins is a start. I recommend taking measures to reduce household sources of metal toxicity.
But we can’t live in a bubble. My three children (born 2000, 2001, and 2004) have attended Virginia Beach public schools. They were exposed to various toxins (including toxic molds and mildew) both there and in the outside world. My family is very careful about the foods we eat, the cleaning products we use, and various other measures.
A major step we have taken is the use of bio-energetic detoxification, which includes supplements designed to support our bodies' to eliminate heavy metals, naturally.
This was a critical part of my wife, Liebell Clinic Office Manager and Patient Advocate, Sheila's recovery from chronic Lyme disease. I routinely see patients who had previously undergone intravenous chelation therapy, and numerous other very expensive and potentially risky treatment approaches to eliminate heavy metals.
Sheila and I practice what I preach, and thus offer only natural self-detoxification, using bio-energetic supplementation the key component of our whole-body, wellness-based approach. Sheila is militant about metals, so pick her brain for advice!
We use our safe and non-toxic methods to help sufferers of the effects of chronic tick-triggered illness regain their health, naturally.
I make no claims that this approach eliminates all metals, nor is any government grant being issued to me or any of my colleagues in the energy medicine field to research its effectiveness. I would love to see the results—if such studies would ever take place.
In the meantime, our patients’ superb health improvements are their measuring stick, supported by my findings using bio-energetic Testing.
We shield ourselves & patients from metals armed by prevention & and bio-energetic supplementation
