Our health, our well-being and our ability to live our lives to their full potential are threatened by toxic metals and other exotic contaminants. The most common source of this threat to our health is the environment in which we live. To a greater or lesser extent, our foods and water supplies are frequently contaminated with toxic metals. Perhaps as significant as our exposure to toxic metals, are deficiencies of vital minerals and vitamins, which the human body needs to protect itself against toxic metal accumulation such as lead, cadmium, mercury, aluminum. Because modern processing and refining methods rob our foods of vital minerals which would shield us from heavy metal accumulation, our body tissues have a tendency to absorb and retain ever increasing amounts of heavy toxic metals.
How can I get rid of these heavy toxic metals?
The major cause of accumulation of heavy toxic metals in the body, other than environmental exposure, is a deficiency of vital minerals and vitamins.
How long will it take to get rid of heavy metals?
The removal of heavy metals from the system will depend upon the chronic nature and the degree of toxicity, together with the degree of deficiency of the essential protective minerals. In cases of severe heavy metal toxicity, one may anticipate perhaps six to eighteen months of involved therapy to eliminate the problem. Excessive heavy metal build up in the tissues may require a considerable period of time. Normally, if capable, the body eliminates heavy toxic metals slowly, so as not to cause too great a physiological or psychological trauma.
Can all of these toxic metals be taken out at once?
Toxic heavy metals cannot be removed or eliminated at once, and their rate of removal is regulated carefully by various physiological mechanisms. The removal of even small amounts of a heavy toxic metal can, and usually will, result in a certain degree of discomfort.
Toxic metals must be removed very slowly simply because distressing symptoms frequently occur due to the toxic heavy metals being removed too quickly.
