Preventing Heavy Metal Toxicity

Preventing Heavy Metal Toxicity

When a person has high levels of heavy metals in their bodies, it can drastically damage the immune system and organs, leading to often debilitating health problems. So it stands to reason that preventing heavy metal toxicity in your system is of paramount importance because, if we don’t, it can lead to chronic fatigue, memory loss, hypothyroidism, insomnia, unexplained tremors, depression, joint pain and chronic headaches.

Understanding Heavy Metal Toxicity

Before tackling how to prevent such toxins from entering your system, it’s important to understand where heavy metals come from and what the symptoms of internal toxicity are.

People commonly experience exposure to heavy metals such as aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, uranium, lead and mercury, all of which are present in various forms in our environment. We know mercury is found in vaccines and thermometers, and we use aluminum foil to wrap leftovers, but some of these heavy metals are not so familiar. Heavy metals are found in everything from tooth fillings to hair dyes, batteries to coffee, cigarette smoke to jewelry, cookware to fish and automobile exhaust.

Symptoms often associated with heavy metal toxicity can range from dry skin, irritability and digestive issues to chronic kidney disease, memory loss, heart disease and more.

As heavy metals often are present in the most innocent-looking sources such as toys and health products—even our drinking water, as evidenced by the Flint Water Crisis—toxic levels of heavy metals are ever-present. The body bio-accumulates heavy metals, meaning that even exposure years earlier can cause symptoms in the present if the body has not been successfully detoxified by the organs of detoxification—the liver, kidneys, lungs, bowels and skin.

Detoxification Methods

It is crucial that we take preventive steps to strengthen our immunity and core health by bolstering organ and cell function. The most effective way to do so is by introducing natural supplements and cleansing regimens that help to safely rid our bodies of toxins.

BodyHealth Complete Multi + Liver Detox Support™, for example, is a multi-vitamin, multi-mineral supplement that helps the liver and kidneys produce antioxidants that assist in neutralizing and more efficiently filtering toxins out of our systems. A more cost-effective way to introduce a blend of 16 organic fruit and vegetable whole-food concentrates complete with specific herbs and amino acids, this multi-vitamin supplement can assist with body detoxification.

However, we need to be sure metal toxins are leaving our bodies for good. Ensuring healthy bowel movements and urination on a daily basis is also imperative, as it enables the body to flush out harmful chemicals and cleanly filter your system. In essence, those suffering from constipation are accumulating heavy metals since they aren’t being released from their bodies. Taking two to four doses of BodyHealth Intestinal Cleanse daily as a natural digestive support, however, will help your colon to be cleansed, aiding in body detoxification without cramping or loss of control. It will help to protect your liver, intestinal and overall body health when taken as directed.

Bind Heavy Metals Actively

No matter how clean, green and eco-friendly your lifestyle is, you’ll continually be introduced to toxic metal pollutants. You can introduce the all-natural chelation supplement, Metal-Free, or the toxic eliminator, Body Detox, to your system in order to battle environmental toxicity.

These health supplements can be taken on a regular basis as to keep toxic metal levels down or consistently eliminate them from your system. These highly effective and affordable sprays reduce toxin build-up and actively bind metals to enable quicker and more efficient filtration. The metals are eliminated almost entirely via the bile-bowel route, which is the natural way your body detoxifies metals and therefore protects your organs from harm. Kidneys and the delicate glomerulus of the liver are spared from excess stress as a result, helping you to recover energy and feel healthier.

Avoiding Exposure When Possible

In addition to supplements and integrative support, you can help to reduce daily exposure by avoiding metal-rich products and chemicals. Try to protect yourself by opting for organic and pesticide-free foods, filtering your tap and shower water, using metal-free hygienic products and applying “metal logic” to what you bring into your home on a regular basis. Stay educated about new sources of toxic heavy metals—for instance, earlier this year a study at Johns Hopkins identified five toxic metals found in popular e-cigarette liquids. ­­­

Heavy metal toxicity may be commonplace in modern society, but that doesn’t mean successful and consistent detoxification is impossible. With dedication and perseverance in conjunction with smart shopping and an increased all-natural nutritional intake, your body and overall health will be spared many of the adverse effects of toxins.

The Master of Metabolism: How the Thyroid Gland Creates Vitality
The Master of Metabolism: How the Thyroid Gland Creates Vitality

by Dr. David Minkoff October 09, 2019 7 min read

When you think of “vitality” what do you think of?

For most people, it’s some image of an active life, bursting with energy: shining eyes; spring in your step; the zest of life.

But if you go just a little bit deeper into this idea of vitality, it’s not some abstract, ephemeral quality reserved for the chosen few with the right genetics. It’s a very real thing, grounded in the biochemistry of life.

And it ultimately comes down to your body’s ability to make biological energy, a complex process collectively known as “metabolism.” 

So if you want to enhance your vitality, it makes sense to start with the master regulator of metabolism –– the one gland that controls metabolism and energy for every single  cell in your body:

The Thyroid Gland.

And learning how to dial in its health is one of the most powerful ways to enhance your energy, speed up healing, and simply feel more alive.

PerfectAmino Uptake and Bioavailability, Plasma Test and Lab Results
PerfectAmino Uptake and Bioavailability, Plasma Test and Lab Results

by Dr. David Minkoff September 25, 2019 4 min read

Abstract
This study examines the effect of PerfectAmino on the plasma amino acid levels in 5 patients at an Integrative Medical Clinic in Clearwater, FL. Fasting levels of essential serum amino acids and glucose were taken, and then 10 grams of PerfectAmino were fed with repeat serum levels of amino acids and glucose taken at an average of 41 minutes and 103 minutes afterward. The data showed that in every case blood levels of essential amino acids increased significantly from fasting levels with no increase in glucose levels. Additionally, levels of conditionally essential amino acids, (Arginine and Histidine), had increases as well, demonstrating that with PerfectAmino both conditionally essential amino acids can be produced by the body when PerfectAmino is fed. We conclude that PerfectAmino in both tablet and powder from are well absorbed after oral feeding and have no significant effect on blood glucose levels.
