“And Feel Great Again”
In this day and age, we have lots of heavy metals in our environment that can lead to heavy metal poisoning… and lots of people have heavy metals toxicity. But the good news is heavy metals can be cleansed away. Here are 5 great ways to get rid of heavy metals such as lead, arsenic, mercury, aluminum, cadmium and more.
I’ve been researching heavy metal poisoning for 50 plus years. In fact, the first article I wrote about heavy metal poisoning was way back in high school. So heavy metal poisoning has been around for a long time.
Symptoms of Heavy Metal Poisoning – Symptoms of heavy metal poisoning include headaches, rhinitis, nerve pain, unable to think clearly, cardiomyopathy, high blood pressure, mental disabilities, liver and prostate problems, anemia, cancer, depression, gingivitis, skin rashes, muscle weakness, kidney failure, reduced intelligence, learning disabilities, gout, memory loss, hormone imbalances, immune problems, male and female infertility, behavioral changes, eczema, no energy, just not feeling right, garlic breath and even more challenges… and all of these symptoms take a toll one our lives.
Heavy Metal Hair Testing – It’s important to check for heavy metal toxicity by having a hair analysis done, heavy metals build up in your hair. And if you google “Heavy Metal Hair Analysis” you will find lots of labs that will send out a kit for doing hair testing. This analysis is not as good as going to a doctor and having blood taken and having a blood analysis done. But I found a lot of doctors didn’t know a thing about heavy metal toxicity and thus I was on my own.
Doing the Testing - Just send in a hair sample in the container they supply and they will send back your personal breakdown of heavy metals in your body for a nominal fee. It’s usually about $30 to $50 or so. A few weeks later you will get back a test report for how much arsenic, aluminum, mercury, cadmium, lead, antimony and many more heavy metals you have in your body. These are generalities not a specific breakdown like a doctor will get by taking blood and having testing done. But hair analysis does work and I have had it done.
Test Again After Detoxing - Post chelation hair testing should be done to check for removal of heavy metals. If the heavy metals are gone… great you are done. If the heavy metals still persist in small amounts you will need to repeat the detox again… and maybe even a third time.
Most of the time chelation should be repeated over an over again… because we have an ongoing constant exposure to heavy metals. Heavy metals are all around us and thus we need to remove them on a regular basis.
DMSA - Dimercapto Succinic Acid or DMSA is a powerful oral heavy metal chelating supplement that works well to get rid of heavy metals including mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic.
I remember doing my first DMSA cleansing, I started taking the supplement and found that after one week of detoxing… I was feeling much better and had a lot more energy and vitality.
Many of us had or have mercury fillings in our teeth and because of that, it’s important to remove as much of those heavy metals from our bodies as possible.
Study – A study of nine children who were exposed to mercury who were given DMSA had their blood mercury levels decreased… and they had no signs of mercury neurotoxicity after chelation.
Study – Another study showed that DMSA in the laboratory was the most effective way to remove heavy metals from the brain. And there are lots of other great studies showing the effectiveness of DMSA.
Side Effects - There can be side-effects to doing any kind of chelation therapy or detoxing so listen to your body and stop the detox if you don’t feel well.
Dose for DMSA – Most people recommend 500 mg per day, taking the supplement for 3 to 7 days… and then not taking the supplement for 7 days. DMSA usually comes in 100 mg capsules so that means taking 5 capsules a day. DMSA should be taken between meals for best absorption.
EDTA Detoxing Therapy - This heavy metal detoxing agent works well for some people yet it can have side-effects for others. And it has to be administered by your doctors via an IV drip. It takes time, usually a couple of hours or more to have the IV chelation done. Yet this is the gold standard for most doctors when it comes to getting rid of heavy metals. I had EDTA therapy done and I did not feel good for a week afterward… so it’s not for me. But you will have to decide that for yourself.
Bentonite Clay Detox - We live in a toxic world and lots of places are contaminated with heavy metals, and because of that it’s very important that we detox our bodies with agents such as Bentonite Clay both of which help remove heavy metals. Taking from 1 to 3 teaspoons daily for 7 to 10 days and then taking a break for 7 days and then coming back and repeating the Bentonite Clay. All heavy metal detoxing takes time… so don’t expect all the heavy metals to disappear overnight… it will take a few months.
Algae Products Detox - Algae such as Chlorella, Spirulina, and AFA all help to remove heavy metals from the body. Taking 3,000 mg daily of any of these algae products works wonders to slowly detox the body of small amounts of heavy metals.
Cilantro Detoxing - Cilantro also helps to remove heavy metals from the body. Just add a 1/2 cups of Cilantro to your regular meals daily… and over time heavy metals will very slowly be removed from your body. This is the slowest but easiest method of all… and it’s very inexpensive. Cilantro works but if you have lots of heavy metals in your body then you might want to go with one of the other detoxing methods to remove those heavy metals as quickly as possible.
I know for sure, that just like me, you will feel much better when you have all those terrible heavy metals detoxed from your body.
Many Blessings My Friends!
