If you are experiencing health problems, and your doctor cannot determine why, exposure to heavy metals may be the cause. Heavy metals are found in nature, and humans are exposed to heavy metals everyday. Small amounts of these elemhttp://18.104.22.168/articles/wp-admin/post.php?action=edit&post=289ents are common in both the environment and in our diets, and some of these metals are actually necessary for good health. Exposure to heavy metals is hard to avoid entirely, but large amounts of any of these metals can cause acute (short term) or chronic (long term) toxicity and poisoning. And man-made forms of most metals can be very toxic when ingested. Most people can excrete toxic heavy metals from the body if exposure is acute. However, people who suffer from chronic exposure, typically cannot excrete these metals efficiently, and they build-up inside of the body. The hair analysis provides a way to determine WHAT toxins may be inside your body, and it is possible to decipher acute exposure from chronic.
If exposure to heavy metals goes unrecognized or inappropriately treated, toxicity can result in significant illness and reduced quality of life. For people who suspect that they, or someone in their household, might have heavy metal toxicity, hair testing is highly recommended.
Heavy metal toxicity can result in damaged or reduced mental and central nervous function, lower energy levels, and damage to blood composition, lungs, kidneys, liver, and other vital organs. Long-term exposure to heavy metals can result in slowly progressing physical, muscular, and neurological degenerative processes that mimic Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Muscular Dystrophy, and Multiple Sclerosis. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, or have been diagnosed with a degenerative disease, a hair analysis is highly recommended.
