Your air, water and food are saturated with toxins—that means your body and mind are too.
We are so accustomed to using many items on a daily basis that contain vast amounts of metals without even thinking of what we are putting in our bodies.
Aluminum is a pervasive heavy metal used as a food additive and in metal cookware, beverage cans, antacids, and antiperspirants
Lead can be found in our water supplies, air pollution, and as you may be familiar in old paint dated back before 1978.
Maganese is a metal that is needed in small amounts to our bodily function and is found in green leafy vegetables, but manganese toxicity can occur when manganese dust from sources such as chemical manufacturing and welding is inhaled or when high levels of manganese are present in drinking water.
Arsenic has become a common contaminant in soil and groundwater due to its prevalence as a byproduct of industrial manufacturing processes. Arsenic is also present at high levels in conventionally raised poultry, which is fed arsenic-containing drugs, and in rice from India and areas outside of California
Heavy metals pass through the blood–brain barrier and accumulate in brain tissue. Once in the brain, they harm neurological function through several mechanisms.
Heavy metals displace essential minerals such as zinc and iron that are required for neurotransmitter production.
Heavy metals induce oxidative stress, which reduces neuronal plasticity and impairs learning and behavior.
Aluminum accumulates in immune cells of the brain. This may provoke an inflammatory immune response that ultimately affects neurological function and behavior.
Heavy metals accumulate in the fatty tissues - like the heart, liver, and especially the brain.
This makes these organs far more susceptible to wireless radiation poisoning. This also effects the mitochondria, as the calcium voltage ion channels are depolarizer from electromagnetic radiation, which decreases cellular integrity, as well as lowers the mitochondria’s ability to produce energy correctly and at higher voltages. The more you hold your cell phone too, the more that electrical field from the phone will transfer across your electric field and make metals “stick” to you more as well, as the electrical field from the phone creates an electromagnetic vacuum trapping in conductors. This will make it more difficult for your body and organs to detoxify metals as well, and you will have a harder time integrating beneficial minerals into the body due to leaky channels in the cells (causing premature cell depolarization).
Ok so enough about all of the bad stuff- how do we get it out of our system??
I have to share this new heavy metal detox supplement I've been using for the whole family over the past month. You know I like to try things out before I share with you and wow- this is definitely something I'm so grateful for!
I started myself and Landon (my 13 year old son) on it the first week. Landon had been tested for heavy metals at the age of 4 and had excessive amounts of mercury in his system. During my pregnancy with him I unfortunately had to deal with hydronephrosis of my left kidney. I came into the ER with horrible pains in my side and I was not able to urinate. After hours of exams and being placed on a catheter, I was sent home with a prescription for Tramadol to alleviate the pain and told that there was nothing else that could be done unless I opted for an abortion because my baby was considered "non viable" because I was only 20 weeks pregnant.
At that time I was not knowledgeable about the various effects of medicine and my doctor promised taking Tramadol for the pain was the best way to handle it- all while pregnant. I know for a fact this drug contributed to the myriads of problems Landon dealt with as a baby and is still dealing with now.
I haven't talked too much about what I went thru with Landon as a developing baby but he was always inconsolable. He always acted like he was in pain, crying and clinching his legs up tightly. Test after test and doctor after doctor for years up until he was about 3 years old I was always told "he's fine, there's nothing wrong" Looking back now, I realize a lot of the symptoms while he was an infant were in fact opiod withdrawals. Yes, despite be
