The first question I always get asked is, “Where would I get heavy metals from anyway? “
The reality is, our lives are saturated with opportunity for heavy metal deposition. Heavy Metals are literally everywhere; in your food, in the air, in the water, in your personal care products, even emitted from your laptops. Avoiding heavy-metal exposures and therefore deposition is extremely hard, even impossible. And for those of you who are epigenetically predisposed to a decreased detoxification capacity. Who do not have those enzymes which are required for rapid detoxification, WILL accumulate heavy metals. And store them in a myriad of places; the brain, the liver, the thyroid, the mitochondria, the nervous system, the lymph, and the bone – where heavy metals push out calcium causing osteoporosis.
The one place you WILL NOT find heavy metal deposition is your blood. Why? Because heavy metals drop out of blood within a number of hours, in order to protect the most vulnerable organs – your heart.
Blood levels of toxic metals show only recent or ongoing exposure still remaining in the blood
If you have been to the GP, and they DO find heavy metals in your blood – then you know you are being actively poisoned in current time. Historic exposure can ONLY be assessed through a Private Clinical Practice, using Private Laboratory testing, combined with a chelating compound.
