Presently, we are attacked by toxins of every kind imaginable. Every year, thousands of new chemicals are being introduced into our environment. Our bodies are subjected to an onslaught of dangerous chemicals daily from things like air pollution, plastics, and industrial cleaning agents.
Some of the most common warning signs that you might be struggling with heavy metal toxicity include:
👉 Chronic fatigue
👉 Autoimmune diseases, including Lyme’s disease
👉 Poor recovery from exercise and weakness
👉 Skin irritation
👉 Neurological disorders
👉 Brain-fog, trouble concentrating, difficulty learning, and poor memory
👉 Depression, manic depression, and/or anxiety
👉 Digestive issues, such as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)
👉 Chronic aches and pains, such as those associated with fibromyalgia
👉 Impaired motor control, hearing, speech, vision, and gait
If you ever wonder why despite staying healthy—eating an organic diet, exercising, meditating, and taking supplements—some pains just don’t go away. You’ve been diligently following almost all health protocols and yet, the relief never comes.
Where Do Heavy Metals Come From?
Mercury poisoning is one of the most common types of heavy metal poisoning. Almost every single person in the world has at least trace amounts of mercury in his or her body. Why? Some of the factors that can cause mercury poisoning (and other types of heavy metal toxicity) include:
☠️ Exposure to environmental pollutants, such as traffic fumes, air pollution, food contaminants, cigarette smoke, or radiation.
☠️ Having metal amalgam dental fillings (silver fillings slowly release mercury into the body).
☠️ Eating a poor-quality diet (for example, eating farm-raised fish that carry high levels of mercury). A diet that includes processed foods, especially those that are imported from foreign countries and not organically grown (and even plant foods grown in soil that has high levels of metals) can also be a contributing factor.
☠️ Drinking water that is contaminated with trace amounts of metals (such as aluminum).
☠️ From birth (heavy metals can be passed down in utero from mother to her offspring).
☠️ Exposure or use of household substances that carry mercury, such as adhesives, air condition filters, cosmetics, fabric softeners, felt, floor waxes and polishes, and talcum powder, getting tattoos.
☠️ Exposure to substances that carry lead, such as some chocolates, canned foods, toothpaste, old paints, insecticides, ceramic and some pottery, and soldered pipes.
☠️ Use or exposure to other household items, such as antiperspirants, baking powder, certain baby formulas, plastic toys, antacids, aluminum foil, certain metal pots and pans, stainless steel cutlery, coins, and some makeup.
☠️ Possibly receiving certain vaccinations.
In high amounts, mercury is one of the deadliest metals there is.
What are some warning signs and side effects associated with mercury poisoning? These include changes to the central nervous system, irritability, fatigue, headaches, skin damage, and cognitive loss.
Every day, we are exposed to different kinds of toxic chemicals, and we should commit to protecting our bodies from the threats that will put our health at risk. Our bodies want to heal and are working for you every day.
