(NaturalNews) With all the recent news about iron pills that might harm you (http://www.naturalnews.com/034021_i…) and a popular dietary supplement that was exposed as having surprisingly high levels of aluminum sulfate (http://www.naturalnews.com/034005_A…), NaturalNews has received numerous emails from readers wanting to know how to actually remove heavy metals (and light metals, for that matter) from their body.
On top of the items mentioned above, there is also aluminum and mercury in many vaccines (http://www.naturalnews.com/031870_f…), and people take in mercury from eating sushi, too (http://www.naturalnews.com/029189_s…). There’s also a problem with copper exposure, as people who take in too much copper may literally lose their minds or become delusional (http://www.naturalnews.com/034037_A…).
The bottom line in all this is that we are being assaulted with heavy metals through medicines, personal care products, cosmetics, industrial chemicals and even some fraudulently marketed health products.
So what can you do about it?
Step one: Get tested – blood, hair, urine
Before you can treat metals toxicity, you need to determine what levels of metals you actually have contaminating your body’s tissues.
As metals toxicity expert Roy Dittman explained in our recent interview, a blood test alone cannot accurately determine your level of metals toxicity. Many metals quickly pass from your blood to your tissues, where they may lodge and cause serious long-term health problems such as:
• Iron lodged in your heart tissue can cause heart disease.
• Aluminum lodged in your brain tissue can cause Alzheimer’s or clinical insanity.
• Mercury lodged in your brain can cause autism spectrum disorders.
• Lead lodged in your bones can interfere with red blood cell production and even white blood cell production.
To get tested, find a local doctor or naturopath who can run these tests and offer you an intelligent diagnosis. Get your tests done, review your results, then decide your next course of action.
