Within the last 30 years, heavy metal poisoning has been increasing significantly. One of the major causes of this is the increase of adding heavy metals to commercial products. Some of these commercial products are agrichemicals (i.e., pesticide, herbicide). These toxic chemicals are some of the major causes of heavy metal contamination in soil, crops, and other food sources throughout the world. Another major causes of heavy metal toxicity is dental amalgams (silver fillings).
What are Heavy Metals?
In general, heavy metals are elements that have metallic properties and are harmful to the body, even in small quantities. The scientific definition of heavy metal is a metal with a density level greater than 5 g/cm3. Examples of heavy metals are mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), arsenic (As), chromium (Cr), thallium (Tl), and lead (Pb).
Another metal that you should be wary of is aluminum, because it is one of the major causes of metal toxicity. In its pure form, this metal is very toxic to your body. Aluminum is not considered a heavy metal, but it does have heavy metal-like properties.
How Heavy Metals Harm Your Body and Symptoms of Heavy Metal Toxicity
Most heavy metals harm your body by destroying certain cells and weakening your body’s metabolism and neurotransmission process. This could lead to neurodegenerative diseases (i.e., Alzheimer’s) and other chronic health problems.
Heavy metals tend to bioaccumulate in the body and therefore the body has a hard time breaking them down into safe substances. Because of this, the amount of heavy metals in the body can increase to dangerous levels in a short amount of time.
Symptoms of heavy metal toxicity can range greatly. Some of the common symptoms are low energy, anxiety, depression, headaches, chronic pain, constipation, dizziness, and memory problems. Heavy metal toxicity is often not diagnose properly, because most people and doctors are not trained to detect symptoms of heavy metal poisoning.
How to Safely Detox Mercury and Heavy Metals
It is wise to detox harmful heavy metals on a regular basis, especially mercury because it is one of the most toxic neurotoxins on Earth. When detoxing heavy metals, it is best to do it in cycles. Doing this allows your body enough time to extract heavy metals that have bioaccumulated in your fatty tissues and organs, and release them into your bloodstream for excretion. Furthermore, it helps prevent major side effects due to having too much heavy metals in your bloodstream.
Before detoxing heavy metals, you should get a test done for heavy metal poisoning. One of the best tests available to the public is the Metals Hair Test or Hair Elements Test.
Another thing you should do before you start detoxing heavy metals from your body is to go on a proper supplementation program, so that you can supply your body with essential vitamins and minerals, such as magnesium, zinc, calcium, vitamin (B, C, and E), and essential fatty acids, and other essential nutrients. Without these nutrients, your body has a harder time detoxing heavy metals. Also, eat lots of organic plant foods.
Each heavy metal behaves differently in the body, so the method to remove it will vary. For example, when detoxing mercury, it is best to remove all dental amalgams (silver fillings) from your teeth before going on a mercury detox program. You should learn how to detox mercury for the reason that it is the most toxic heavy metal and it is one of the common causes of heavy metal poisoning.

Removing dental amalgams should be undertaken with the care from a medical professional in order to ensure that the process is done safely. Most dentists do not know how to do this, so you will need to find a dentist in your area who knows how to safely remove dental amalgams. A great website to search for dentists who know how to do this is IAOMT.org. If you want to learn more about mercury poisoning, visit MercuryPoisoned.com.
The Dangers of Dental Amalgam
If you want to increase your success rate of detoxing heavy metals and preventing heavy metal poisoning, you need to education yourself with the right knowledge. I recommend reading the book Amalgam Illness, Diagnosis and Treatment by Andrew Hall Cutler. This book is more concentrated on mercury poisoning, but it also has some great information about other heavy metals.
Another thing you may want to do to prevent heavy metal poisoning is to avoid vaccine shots. Many vaccines contain thimerosal, a mercury-based derivatives. The image below will show you evidence of this.
