Heavy metals and toxic elements are found everywhere in the environment and exposure can contribute to a wide range of different health conditions.
HOW WE ARE EXPOSED
One can be exposed to toxic compounds by either;
Ingestions (eating or drinking)
Dermal (though the skin)
WHAT EXCESSIVE EXPOSURE DOES
Excessive exposure to toxins may lead to an accumulation in the body. They tend to deposit and store in adipose (fat), glandular tissue and the brain (Aluminium e.g).
The liver is the main detoxifying organ of the body and is responsible for the clearing of these compounds. If the toxic burden becomes too high for the liver to cope with, the toxins will spill back into the bloodstream where they circulate and store in different parts of the body, particularly in fat, the brain and glandular tissue (thyroid gland, adrenals, pineal gland among others).
Their presence, in the long-term may lead to disruptions in the normal function of these glands and contribute to disease.
ONE COMMON EXAMPLE
Mercury toxicity affects brain function (memory loss, anger, cognitive decline e.g), can cause headaches, fine tremor, increased salivation, excitability, poor mental concentration, metallic taste, fatigue, anorexia, psychoses, hypertension with renal dysfunction.
Heavy metal toxicity such as Mercury or Lead overload, can often be confused with early onset dementia as the symptoms are similar.
Once the appropriate treatment protocol has been put in place, it can be a huge relief to find your partner is not actually experiencing permanent cognitive decline.
ALL HEAVY METAL & TOXIN TREATMENT PROTOCOLS SHOULD BE DONE UNDER YOUR FUNCTIONAL HEALTH PRACTITIONER'S CARE.
A standard detox does not remove heavy metals and environmental chemicals, and can even make things worse by removing a metal (aluminium) from brain tissue and lodging it in the liver or other tissues due to incomplete detoxification.

WHAT THE HEAVY METAL AND TOXIN TEST CHECKS
The Heavy Metal and Environmental Toxin Test provides information on the presence of heavy metals and toxic elements in the body. It tests for a wide range of heavy metals, chemical compounds and environmental toxins that individuals are commonly exposed to.
The full test report will provide you with information on the most common sources of these compounds as well as their possible toxic effects. This test allows you to fully assess the presence and effects of exogenous toxins.
