When people are suffering from a high level of heavy metals in their body, they can be described as being “heavy metal toxic.” Harboring high levels of heavy metals in the body can contribute to a wide variety of negative symptoms, including digestive problems and even loss of memory.
Unfortunately, most people are exposed to potential risks of heavy metals through normal occurrences in their daily lives, including sitting in rush-hour traffic on the way home from work or drinking from a soda can. Below are some of the important things you should know about heavy-metal toxicity and how to spot the symptoms.
Humans are exposed to a wide array of heavy metals via items we use daily, like cookware, cosmetics, and antiperspirants, and in certain substances, we may consume (like soda from a can or fish) or be exposed to (like tobacco or smoggy air.) Some of the most common heavy metals we come into contact with include aluminum, cadmium, lead, mercury, and even arsenic. Many people don’t realize that getting tattoos or using hair dye, among other consumer items containing heavy metals, can actually be contributing to heavy-metal toxicity levels.
Unfortunately, heavy-metal toxicity is often misdiagnosed or overlooked—thus many people are suffering from the symptoms for a prolonged period of time before the cause is identified. Metal toxicity can interfere with the routine functioning of certain organs and body functions, which brings on debilitating effects on the body. Symptoms include lack of energy, high blood pressure, weight gain, and unexplained, chronic aches and pains. Some other symptoms of heavy metal toxicity include:
Heavy-metal toxicity can be determined through testing of the hair, urine & feces.* If high levels of metal toxicity are found in the body, one can look into various forms of chelation therapy, many of which are safe and FDA approved treatments to reduce the harmful effects of heavy-metal toxicity. Chelation therapy binds toxic metal ions into structures that are then prepared to be excreted from the body, through the urine or stool, depending on the method used.
Are you looking to rid your body of toxic heavy metals? BodyHealth’s Metal-Free™ Oral Spray formula and the accompanying Metal-Free™ Program can help the body eliminate toxic heavy metals and support heavy-metal detoxification when combined with a healthy lifestyle. Metal-Free creates a cage-like bind to the metal particles, which the body recognizes as waste and is eliminated through the bowels. This tends to be a safer option, as it avoids any chance of causing stress to the kidneys (which could be the case when elimination is through the urine). †
During the detox process, it is also important to further support your body with a healthy diet, adequate supplementation with multivitamins & minerals, such as Complete Multi + Liver Detox Support. It should also be noted that the detox pathways are proteins, so supplementing with the 8 essential amino acids during this process is key, so that those pathways are fortified and functioning properly. PerfectAmino™ provides the perfect balance of these essential amino acids to help the body build and/or repair proteins. When you're detoxing from heavy metal toxicity, you must be having regular bowel movements to be sure the toxins are being eliminated. For many this can be a problem, but taking Intestinal Cleanse, a natural digestive support blend can help with this. Perfect Greens Formula is a superfood powder and is a new addition to the BodyHealth family of supplements.†
*If you are using the Metal-Free product, a Metals Fecal Test is recommended because a urine test will not show results over time.

Elderberry, also known as Sambucus nigra, has been used for centuries as a natural herbal remedy for those who fall ill.
Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, referred to elderberry as “nature’s medicine chest,” and it has been noted as early as the 5th century BC as a medicinal tonic – forever cementing it as a staple in human nutrition.
But, it wasn’t until recently that we understood WHY it is so helpful to the body. And with this understanding came advanced methods of harnessing the incredible power of this medicinal plant.
Chronic inflammation is one of the most dangerous conditions to affect the human body. The WHO estimates that three out of five deaths worldwide are associated with chronic inflammatory diseases (stroke, cancer, heart disorders, and other conditions and diseases).
Now, that doesn’t mean that everyone who suffers from chronic inflammation is going to die – quite the contrary. But it does mean that it is crucial to identify the condition and address it early before it progresses into a disease or serious health condition.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, nearly one in five adults in the U.S. live with a mental illness. Many of these people have been prescribed medication to treat conditions such as depression, ADHD, anxiety, and hundreds of other cataloged mental disorders.
But what if these mental illnesses weren’t the result of an imbalance in the brain, but instead were caused by something as simple as a yeast infection?
Well, we are not about to make a ridiculous statement like “All depression is caused by candida” or anything like that, but today we’re going to honestly review what effects an overgrowth of candida can have on your body and your mental health.
Furthermore, we’re going to provide guidance on how to resolve a candida infection.
